Complaint Review: Gateway Computers
Gateway Computers7565 Irvine Center Drive, Irvine, CA 92618 Rothesay, New Brunswick Canada
Gateway Computers ,gateway.com - And Future Shop Canada Purchased Gateway computer on-line vis Future Shop. Experienced problems within the warentee period. Contacted Future Shop who sent me to Gateway who does not have a toll-free number for customers who did not purchase directly from Gateway Rothesay New Brunswick
*Consumer Suggestion: Thanx goodness...
I have now had to place no less than 6 long-distance calls, each approximately 20 minutes (including wait times). The most recent series of calls were a result of Gateway not sending me a return shipping label for my defective part - which must be returned within 30 days to redeem a deposit I was required to make on the new part!!!
On several calls the customer service person - would say that their system was down and that I should call back. On another call I was re-directed to another long-distance number - in order to make a request for a proper shipping label. I was on-hold for about 30 minutes before I finally was connected to a customer service rep - who took just a couple of minutes to process the shipping label.
So, at the end of the day, even though my computer is under warrantee, the long distance charges will likely far exceed the cost of the replacement part.
I will never again buy from Gateway - and I will question Future Shop on potential future purchases.
My advice is to by DELL Computers. They give awesome customer service!!
