07:22 PM Conor and Jeremy ~ sales dept. Company truely deserves EVERY negative report filed against them ~ juliette Internet
I didn't realize how many negative reports this company had until i came here to leave mine.  Rude, condescending, arrogant, and unknowledgeable.  Really a sad state of affairs someone doesn't stop them from ripping people off. I checked with the Better Business Bureau and there are literrally hundreds of complaints and maybe a handful the company even bothered to respond to.  Buyer beware and SHOP SOMEWHERE ELSE ~  Awful all the way around ~

bought a golf cart from saferwholesale on the internet paid for shipping to my home.  took six week before it was shiped. got a call from UPS to tell me they could not deliver it to my home because of size, so I had to have it rerouted to a local bussines that had a forklift where it was unloaded, first thing that I saw was a broken roof on the golf cart, The driver of the truck and myself took pictures of the damage, and it was noted on the bill of ladeing. Was told by UPS that saferwholesale would have to put in a claim for damages. That day I started my 5 months of wasting my time. After 30 emails returned as timed out. 10 phone calls (20-30) on hold put through to there customer service guy by the name of Arti. he is very rude, does not answer emails, until threatned, dodges phone calls. Once the cart was uncrated found that the battery's were all dead, wires faulty. Told Arti about battery's, wires, etc. another 10 emails no reply. more phone calls, emails. 5 months have passed nothing done, Email from Arti they did not put in a claim for damages to UPS.

11:13 PM Greater sports .inc Miscommunication then charged me $539.90 4 days later Internet
 I called in for a price told them where I had found them they told me a price of $100 per unit (they claim they did not quote that. So when I called back to check on my order they told me the cost was $539.90. I said wow that is a retail cost I am trying to buy these and resale them, if that was the cost I needed to cancel my order. I had still not been charged the rep I spoke to said ok that was fine sorry for the miscommunication. I said me too, thanks. The next morning his boss calls me and said sorry I am charging your card anyway, I've canceled your order you can have a in store credit. Then 2 days later charged my card. I have sent a dispute through my bank. They totally manipulated the system when I had only been a buyer for an hour, canceled then was charged 4 days later.

02:34 PM Rip-off, false advertising, poor customer service, no refund, Internet
I purchased a go kart from these people on 4/21/11.  When I originally called and ordered it, the price was 2599.99.  They took the money from my account right away.  A few hours later, they called back and stated that the go kart was back ordered.  They offered to send a different one that was a little cheaper.  They said that they would send a refund of 400.00 in 7-10 business days.  In the meantime, the go kart came in and it was damaged.  We refused delivery on that one, they actually did ship another one, but it came in damaged as well.  As of 5/31/11 I still had not received my refund.  I called again and they said that the money would be sent back in 30-60 days.  That did not happen either, when I called again, they said 30-60 business days.  Now it is supposed to be 90 business days.  I think they are seriously just making excuses for them being a HUGE rip off.  So I called today since it is the 90th business day and guess what.....Now they can't talk to me over the phone, all inquiries have to be made by email.  I emailed 2 times and no response.  This is SOOOOOOOOO stupid.  I would recommend that NO ONE do business with these crooks!!!!!!!

09:23 AM Saferwholesale does not represent their name in any way. Internet, Internet
Be very careful when using this company to buy anything as the sales people will tell you anything and if problems arise then you are pretty much on your own. Here is how the story goes.I went on line to purchase a UTV for my children to enjoy around our lake. I did some research and decided on the Forester UTV made by Kandi. I purchased this thru Saferwholesale .com. I paid extra shipping fees even though the web site said that residential shipping was free. I paid for lift gate service as this was mandatory.Upon arrival the semi was unable to unload the shipment using the lift gate service. I had to scramble to find a fork truck to unload the item. This was no easy task at 5pm. Upon getting the freight unloaded the driver was very nice and marked the invoice to refund my money.Saferwholesale was notified and sent the requested documents. They emailed me with the amount of refund I would receive. This was OK to me. They told me it could take up to 90 days. After the time frame I started to inquire about my refund and emailed them at least once a week. This went on for over a month.Now they have declined the refund. But gave me a store credit. Why would I ever buy anything from them again? Where has customer service gone in our country? Beware saferwholesale is not SAFE!Try some other company.

Ordered a 150cc motor scooter that was delivered about September 26, 2011.  The crate is quite large and requires tools to open.  The packaging was undamaged.  The driver did not want to wait and got me to sign for the delivery.When the scooter was unpacked a large scratch in a plastic body panel was revealed.  It was also discovered that the Trunk Box was not included in the packaging.The company was immediately notified by phone and email, with pictures of the damage and that the $49.95 Trunk Box was missing.A reply was sent informing me that the parts would ship in 24 - 48 hours.  It is now 16 days since that message and nothing was sent.  Emails are now getting no reply.This company has terrible customer service and obviously does not stand by their products.

10:17 AM Great sports Inc Terrible Business Practices, But I Am Happy with My Scooter Buy Internet
I found this site after I got spooked, because I got suspicious when a salesman called me after I have placed a purchase of a 150cc motor scooter via the website.  He said shipping was not included and demanded more money, $350, then $100.  I refused and he relented.  Then I got really worry.  I wanted to cancel within 24 hrs, and they wouldn't allow it because of their policy, which heavily stacked in their favor. My reward came 12 days later, including 2 weekends and 2 days working with the shipper.  The good:  it was delivered undamaged; I didn't pay extra for residential delivery (I jury rigged an engine hoist to get it off the truck); the scooter came fully assembled and included a trunk (not in the descriptions); the Certificate of Origin was taped to the box (no need to deal with them again); good price, but not so good now since a $100 increase.  Lessons learned. 1)  I find their sales tactics and policy despicable, like those New York camera and electronic sellers.  2)  But this Chinese scooter selling is tough, competitive business.  Check the fine prints in their return/cancellation policy.  Check other competitors for best price and make sure that it is absolutely what you want because there is no turning back!  3)  You are buying a cheap scooter.  There is no after delivery care, service of any kind.  You need to handle warranty claims and tech support with the importer, not the poor seller.  4)  Don't complain about the poor quality of the cheap Chinese scooters.  Go buy a more expensive scooter from a local dealer, otherwise.

They than tell my that shipping will cost a few hundred dollars more and my total will be 205 dollars more than the bill of sale and reciept. I looked at my reciept and the websight which clearly states free shipping. I told the person if that is the case I want to cancel my odrer.He tells Me ithere will be a 35% cancalation fee once processed. I asked if it was processed and he said not yet but that was the reason for the call. I said good I still cancel the order. After speaking with the night manager I got the same dishonest runaround. He told me all information is on the internet. I told him I was on the site and it says free shipping. There are 105 other complants I could find on the internet in a few minutes regarding this company. The manager told me off and hung up on me so I dont know what if anything is resolved.

04:14 PM Saferwholesale Total scam artists...sent different product and refused to accept the return Internet
I purchased cat jungle gym and a week after the order was placed a sales man called to tell me the  ordered model is not in stock and that they would send the same model, but upgraded for the same price.  I agreed because it said it was upgraded. I received the item and it was far inferior to what I had ordered (much smaller...only one sitting platform for the cats vs. three tiered sitting platforms).  I informed them that I did not get what I ordered and the replacement product was inferior (it was nowhere as big or useful - I have four cats); I was basically told too's yours now.  They refused to accept the return. I filed a complaint with my credit card and was denied because the invoice (which was sent to the credit card company, NOT me) stated As a wholesale company, we do not allow any cancellations, returns, exchanges, or refunds.  Once an order has been placed, it is final.  They failed to tell the credit card company that they sent a much smaller cat jungle gym. So I took my case to court and was informed that refused to accept the registered letter sent by the court, and that there is nothing the court can do to help me (sending a personal court server would cost more than the disputed amount.) Apparently they think sending an inferior product AT THE SAME PRICE AS THE MUCH BETTER PRODUCT is an acceptable business practice. These folks are liars and crooks!!!  Save yourself a huge headache and shop elsewhere.

I purchased a gokart from on 12 June. It was at first an exciting process. Me and the boys spent hours searching the internet for a design they liked. Once we settled on the Spear Jr. 110cc model, we placed the order with a expected delivery of 10-15 business days. My sales rep assured me that it was in stock and the kart would be here before the 4th of July. On 29 June I decided I had better contact them and sent a email inquiring about my order. But after waiting all day with no response I decided to call and make sure that it was going to make it. I reached a operator and inquired about my purchase, after being on hold for 15 minutes I was hung up on. So I called back again and again was on hold for now 10 minutes. The operator returned and stated that the gokart has not shipped yet and that she would have my sales rep contact me within 48 hrs. For some reason only the sales rep knows anything about a persons order? Hopefully they dont ever have a sales rep go on vacation or even worse quit. Who would know where your order is.   Next I Tried to contact them on July 1. It was a Sunday so I used the online operator this time since its a live chat. Again after a lengthy wait they came back with the same exact story as before. Only the Sales rep knows what is going on with my order and would call me within 48 hrs. So I am not patient anymore and call back on Monday the 2nd. I was put on hold for 15 minutes and again hung up on. So after a second stint on hold my sales rep is mysteriously unavailable again but I am assured I will get a call back. Now the 4th has come and gone, It is the 6th of July and I still have no gokart or idea where it may be. So I call one last time and not to my surprise I am given the same line of B.S. Only your sales rep knows where your item is and he is not available it is not in the system as shipped yet. I will leave a message with him and he will call you within 48 hours At this point I lose it and tell her that if I am not contacted today not tomorrow not next week I will just go through my bank and take action to recieve a refund. Now I finally get a call back. The sales manager states that my order has been delayed 3-4 weeks before it gets to California and then it will be shipped to me and that there are many others that have been waiting longer than me, as if it was an accepted practice to go weeks over the shipping deadline. So that means an additional 4-5 weeks before I see the kart for a grand total of 2 months and some change. Or the sales manager says I could opt for a totally different design of gokart that we do not like. I say thanks but no thanks I will just take my money back. He states that because I paid with a check they can only give me an in store credit. THIS IS THE SCAM PART GUYS! They rope you into a check instead of credit cards so that you have to jump through hoops to get your money back.  Luckily I have a great bank and they are taking care of it for me. I have filled out the paperwork and they will be getting my money back.  However I will not get back the 2 months spent waiting or the excitement I had hoped to see in my twin 6 year old boys faces when the gokart arrived. Thanks for the runaround and a huge waste of my time!

PurchaseDate:09/07/2014,Ordered sliding driveway gates from their online website:, spoke to live sales rep, Ray, who was very friendly and told me that the sliding driveway gates were on sale for the same price as regular swing gates. I asked the sales rep if the kits came with was everything I would need to make the gates slide; he replied Yes it has everything to make them slide. The gates shipped from the USA to Ontario, Canada in 3 weeks, but upon inspection they had sent the parts for a swing gate and some of the parts for a sliding gate.  The instructions on the box for missing parts said to contact the Manufacturer, which I did.  The manufacturer notified that I was missing a v-track, wheels/rollers and chain for assembly and that it should have come with this style of gate and to contact  The first time I called (10/21/2014) they agreed that I was  missing parts for the gate to operate and they would send them and email a confirmation with the shipping information. No email was received. I called again on (10/22/2014) about the email, where customer service department and the parts department had said to me that I needed to purchase these parts for an additional $1000.  I told customer service that I had paid for these part already and they were missing, as quoted on my bill Full kit sliding gate opener for sliding gates up to 60 feet long 1300-pounds $535.95T x2.  They put me through to Arty or Ardie (who would not provide his last name) the Administrative Supervisor, who said that the missing part will be shipped and an email will be sent with the shipping information.  Again, no email was sent and so I called again on 10/23/2014 and they told me that the parts department was unavailable and they needed to contact the manufacturer which would take a couple of days. I called again today, 10/28/2014 to see if the product was being shipped.  Again their parts department said it was an additional part and it would cost $1000 more to make the sliding gates able to slide. I quoted them my invoice and they said that the kit described on my invoice did not include these parts and that this was the wrong kit sold to me; their sales rep put in the wrong information as the complete kit was on sale for the same price as the full kit which was sold to me.  I spoke again to Arty, as this mix up was not my doing (since I had called the 1800-number after viewing the website). Arty very rudely told me We have sold you sliding gates that can slide and you should have had someone who installs gates place the order [as they did not sell the parts to make them slide]… [Especially, since] our sales men have no knowledge on what they are selling and you are obviously incompetent in reading the website. For the record I am University Graduate and M.Sc. Candide, I am a co-owner of a Property Management Company, which regularly does building renovations and constructs residential units; and I often make construction material purchases, and his derogatory comments were unprofessional and judgemental against females.  In addition, he said that dealing with me was waste of his time, that he is not paid for solving customer problems and he is losing money talking to me as I wasted an hour of his time, I should be paying him for his time.  He said from what he can see on the invoice we have gates that will slide and the motor is able to pull them open and closed, which has held up his end of the deal, providing sliding gates.  Apparently, following the manufacturer’s instructions on how to assemble the product is not important and not his problem, by Arty’s comment “the gates open and close, whatever that something it is running on is your problem, we are not providing it.”  Apparently, I am not the only one that was sold an incomplete gate kits. My hope is that no other customer will have to go through such horrendous customer service.  I am going through the manufacturer to get the missing pieces which cost $580.SimonOntario, Canada

 I ordered a foldable electric scooter from this company. They charged $45 for shipping, $500 for the item and the box arrived damaged. The transportation company literally dropped it off and ran of the porch quickly. Once it was opened, there were not assembly instructions just a picture. Once it was partly assembled, it was noticed parts were missing. The parts depeartment sent out the missing part. It was then used one time and the battery died after 1 mile after being charged for more than 8 hours. After the battery died, the petals were used to go the rest of the remaining 2 miles being traveled when the petal snapped off. This is the worst item I have ever bought. it was requested to return this product as soon as the product was receieved in a damaged box. We were told it couldn't be returnedand that they could only send out the missing part. The battery is defective and the petal is snapped off.

LG Wholesale,, Defective, unsafe Scooter, no warranty, no exchange, no refund. New Lenox Illinois
LG Wholesale, aka GlobalTrailer, aka Saferwholesale do not warranty their product, and won't repair, replace or refund if they sell you defective merchandise, (even though they sell it to you as warrantied). You are left with all the problems and costs. I purchased a Scooter from They encouraged me to use an online check to get the $100 off and free helmet being offered. The on-line advertisement I ordered from stated Every single bike comes with a warranty that is fully backed leaving you with NO RISK involved! I agreed to the purchase, and paid in full. The following day I received an invoice from LG Wholesale. Red flag, so I did some research on LG and found many duped customers, I called to cancel my order and that's when I found out there was a 30% cancellation fee, and was told my order was a great product and I would be very happy with it, so instead of losing nearly 1/3 of my investment, I agreed to continue, big mistake. The scooter arrived on time, in the color of choice and looked to be in good condition. After 2 days putting it together (with help), I was finally able to check the oil, add gas and put the battery in, ready to ride. Well, as soon as I installed the battery, (yes, correct and + polars), it began to burn. I immediately unhooked the battery, bought a new fuse and tried again, same result. I contacted Parts and Tech Support and Customer Service via Build Chat, and was then informed it was some kind of electrical short, and I should take to to a mechanic. They refused to pay to have the scooter repaired, would not replace or refund my money. I'm out $1200.00 + time + frustration. Would recommend no one purchase from this company. Be sure to check out your dot com to see if it is a subsidary of this company, something I didn't know to do. Lots of hidden issues. Marcia DeSoto, KansasU.S.A.

On Nov 5, 2016 I purchased from Safer Wholesale an Ice Bear PST150-17 trike scooter.I paid for residential delivery with a lift-gate vehicle so there would be no problem unloading.  The vehicle was deliverd via a tractor-trailor which by no means could negotiate my driveway up to the house.  I had to borrow a truck and they off-loaded it onto the bed of the truck.  Beyond that, it was my responsibility to get it unloaded (about 600 pounds).On unpacking, there was no paperwork included at all.  No owner's manual, no assembly instructions .... nothing.  Using common sense, I managed to do the assembly and had a licensed mechanic check my work and sign off on road-worthiness.During the entire purchase process, everytime I called SaferWholesale, I was told a different story  No one there is on the same page other than to get your money and sell you shoddy Chinese merchandise.I have owned this trike for exactly ONE MONTH now.  Last week it became hard to start, then refused to try at all.  I hauled it to a reputabale repair shop and discovered that some/much of the wiring harness was fried ..... literally ...... wires burned into with all insulation melted off.  The machanic noted several other things wrong that were not part of customer-required assembly, but just done wrong by the manf.I have placed a claim for parts with SaferWholesale an was told that it normally takes 2-3 weeks for the parts to be drop-shipped to the customer.  In the meantime, I'm without the transporation that I paid for.  I am retired on Social Security Disability.It is VERY distressing to have a proguct for only ONE MONTH and have it burn up like this.  No offer from SaferWholesale to replace the unit.  All they are going to do is process a claim with the manf.Am disgusted!  Will NEVER deal with Saferwholesale again.  Once the trike is repaired, I plan on putting it up for sale.  I'll pay more, but will find a quality American or Japanese product.

Great Sports Inc, LG Wholesale, DO not do business, scams, fraud, rude,, Great Sports Inc, LG Wholesale, Joliet, Illinois
Note to all. I was one of the lucky ones. It was on Friday 2/8/2013 I made a purchase of a sauna and a generator. totaling close to $2200.00. CRAIG was the rudest person I have ever spoke to. He even hung up on me. With in just a few minutes a nicer person called me back. They wanted to charge me more this time then what we agreed on. I had to argue the issue with them. Then they came down to the agreement price. After the transaction was made by electronic checking. I went to the google and yahoo search and typed in Great Sports Inc to report the rudeness of this person. I seen a link that said great sports inc ripoff, scams. My heart dropped. I did not know what to do after reading over 56 reports. It was on saturday night I called my bank and left a message on the phone because they were closed. On monday morning 2/11/2013 I recieved a call back from my bank and was able to stop payment on them. If it had been on thursday the transaction would have been made and it would have been to late. Please beware. and read all there terms and conditions. ITS A JOKE.

Great Sports Inc Customer Service is Terrible Internet
This is the worst company to deal with. They put the wrong information on the sales receipt which the DMV refused to take. All they had to do to fix the situation was fax the right paperwork to the DMV but they refused to do so. They wanted me to email them copies of paperwork they already had and send the certificate of origin back to them to redo. This is after already waiting 3 weeks for delivery plus another week for them to send the paperwork.  Save yourself time and hassle and stay away from this company. Just order direct from sunny sports. All this company does is drop ship from them anyway and you have no customer support whatsoever.

01:06 PM Great Sports Inc, LG Wholesale, Ordered a set of items in December. Received a different set of items in early February. Items were not packed correctly. Five of the 24 items were broken. Contacted company immediately. Was give Joliet, Illinois
Ordered a set of items in december 2012.  received a different set of items than ordered in February 2012.  Item was shipped (walked?) from Illinois to Montana.  Immediately contacted company and was informed to follow three different processes to try and resolve the issue.  Followed all three of the processes and am still trying to resolve the issue. Have continued to contact company and have received reassurances that they are expediting the issue, that the mistake was found in the processing of the complaint from Safer Wholesale (Greater Sales) to the item manufacturer, and someone will contact me later that day.  Have received no information from the company after any of my calls.  I would not buy from this company again if they were the last company offering internet deals.  Definitely do not use ACH to pay for anything.  Your Credit Card company will assist you in getting your money back.  Will definitely check for reviews harder next time.

i did no research when I was ready to buy an ATV for my son, I saw peoples comments about staying away from this company but I didn't listen and now my son suffers for it. I purchased an ATV for my son from greater sports AKA for 1300.00, the first one I ordered they told me they did not have in stock so they will upgrade me for free. I got the atv 7/12 had to assemble it myself.  I try to start the ATV day after day month after month with no luck. below is my conversation till this day my son has yet to ride and it has yet to start. STAY WAY FROM THIS COMPANY PLEASE. Hello , I called David on December 3, 2012 he told me I needed a new carburetor. I then had to call Artie informed him of the conversation. I was told I would have a new carburetor sent out to me it has been well over a month. I have yet to get a carburetor sent to me. I have never had such poor service from a company. I will be calling my bank to fight these charges on my account, I feel this is a fraudulent company that sells defective merchandise.  -----Original Message----- From: GSI PARTS <> To: me Cc: 'GSI/EFI Sales Department' <> Sent: Mon, Nov 12, 2012 10:41 am Subject: RE: Re: {ORDER REVIEW) sports sniper 4 stroke Full Size [my name was here] My name was here too, I have received your inquiry regarding the issues you are having with your unit.  Please give me a brief description of exactly what the issues are and how your unit does not start.  Also include photos of the exhaust so that I can show the manucafturer what has happened to that particular unit.  I will submit a full warranty claim once I have received this information.  If there is some simple troubleshooting required I can offer assistance and I also have a technician at the manufacturer who actually assembles these units and works on them daily.  He would be more than happy to help you figure out what needs to be done to remedy the issues you are having.  His name is David and his number is 909-614-1661 when you hear the automated voice service press #2 on the dial pad to be taken directly to his desk.  Please get back to me at your earliest convenience and I will provide you with whatever assistance I can. Thanks,---ArtieManager Parts / Warranty Great Sports Inc / Efficient Future Inc Parts & Warranty 2108 McDonough St. Joliet, IL 60436 ph# 708-669-1237 | fx# 815-215-5183  -----Original Message----- From: my e-mail Sent: Sunday, November 11, 2012 8:36am To: Subject: Re: {ORDER REVIEW) sports sniper 4 stroke Full Size [name] Tim, it has been since July since I bought this ATV and have yet to ride it. It does NOT start and when it did start for a short period of time it burned a hole in the exhaust. I have called the number below, I guess no one seems to answer that phone or when they do they are always busy. I have not registered the ATV either, why register something we cant use. This is my last request , to either send someone to my home and fix the ATV at your expense and or come pick it up. I did not spend $1300.00 for something to rust  it's doing a fine job in that department as well, rust everywhere. This company does not sell quality product and I will make consumers well aware when I leave reviews.Carmelina. -----Original Message----- From: tim <> To: email> Sent: Tue, Aug 7, 2012 9:12 am Subject: RE: {ORDER REVIEW) sports sniper 4 stroke Full Size [name] my name was here,Our parts and tech dept has been advised of your issues.
