Complaint Review: Well Traveled Living - Amelia Island Florida, China
Well Traveled Living WTLiving Refused to send a missing grate on a grill I bought, then RUDE CUSTOMER SERVICE Amelia Island Florida, China
When a company tells you they offer “exceptional customer service” and then you get a card with your purchase that says NOT to return the product to where you bought it if it’s missing parts, damaged, or you have problems, you have to worry.
But, if you do reach a “customer service” rep — like at #WellTraveledLiving, expect NOT to get exceptional service. Expect to be treated rudely and see things escalate rapidly. Well Traveled Living has NO idea what customer service is and does NOT treat their customers well.
Expect to be called a "RACIST" and be treated with arrogance.
I bought a small folding grill from Well Traveled Living last week. It came, late, and MISSING THE GRATE. This product has TWO parts — the grill, and the grate. No screws, no small parts. How hard is it to screw that up? Apparently, NOT hard at all.
I tried calling twice. I emailed, and then I got on chat. Remember, Well Traveled Living offers EXCEPTIONAL #customerservice. EXCEPTIONAL.
Exceptional = unusually good; outstanding.
Here’s the chat, VERBATIM except for my phone number:
Chat session started at 9:54:38

I ended the chat after that. I was getting angrier and angrier and the EXCEPTIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICE REP was only getting snottier and snottier.
I’ve worked customer service for Camping World, Talbots, and more and always treated even the angriest customers with respect. This condescending, clueless kid, probably one of the looting, burning, protesting, COVID spreaders in Florida, should be fired. But, guessing this company is Chinese, I doubt he will be.
