    Bad experience at Razor hobbies in Baytown Texas

    Very unprofessional, I went in twice with cash in hand wanting to buy a crawler first and then batteries the second time and he had no interest in helping me. Sat for ten minutes waiting for him to quit building a rack to find me a pair of batteries and then he jumped up to help a guy that was "thinking about buying a micro heli". Very unsatisified with service and availability of parts.

    RE: Bad experience at Razor hobbies in Baytown Texas

    I went in the first day and wanted to buy a crawler and he wouldnt look up to tell me about the redcat he had. Then I called yesterday and asked if he had the batteries I was lookin for and he told me yes, when I got there he was building some sort of rack and was yelling across the shop at a woman that had no clue what she was doing to look here and look there for these batteries and then she starts digging thru a used battery box to sell me some old wore out batteries, while sitting there watching this for ten minutes a guy walked in and said he was thinking about getting into helis and the guy jumped right up to help him and show him his simulator, well it turns out that he didn't even have the batteries, I am very upset with the customer service here and do not recommend this shop to anybody for anything

    If that's the case I would reward him by not being a customer...easy as that.

    RE: Bad experience at Razor hobbies in Baytown Texas

    Just a note on a copy of the emails that i have sent him trying to right the wrong which we were a bit overwhelmed and the batteries that i had were misplaced and put in the back that were for him.

    Email is as follows which the offer still stands for you:

    Sir it was nothing intentional to create a terrible shopping experience for you. And if i have over looked you i am sorry. To make up for the terrible experience you have had i can send you some batteries for free. Anything to make up for the poor service that you received.

    Either i can mail them to you or your choice our shipment just came in with our other order of batteries. So i can make them available for you or mail them to you for free.

    Please accept my apology.

    I am very unsatisified with your service and professionalism. I came in
    twice with cash in hand to purchase something and you had no interest in
    helping me. The first time I wanted to buy a rock crawler and you wouldn't
    look up from the heli you were building and the second time I called you to
    make sure you had the batteries that I wanted and you told me yes. When I
    got there you would not get up to look for them, all you did was yell out at
    the woman in the shop to look here and look there but when a guy walked in
    "thinking about buying a heli" you jumped right up when I had been waiting
    for ten minutes for the batteries. Bet he didn't even buy a heli and I had
    the money in my pocket to buy the batteries that you told me on the phone
    that you had. I'm very unhappy. I will not recommend your shop or services
    and will post my unsatisfaction on forums.

    We have just been overwhelmed with repairs and i was under a deadline with a few of the repairs while i was shorthanded. I did find the other batteries that we could not find while you were here the other day. Our other battery order just came in as well.

    Please give me a call so i can arrange to give the free batteries to you to make up for the bad experience.

    But as stated before I am extending 2 battery packs to you for free of the 2200mah size.

    A face-to-face convo with the owner should have been the first order of business, rather than ranting on the interweb. Did you try that?

    Also, if you look real close you will find punctuation marks on your keyboard. They look like this:  ? ! .

    Guys he voiced his concern and we have addressed it. It has been a very hectic holidays.

    And i will have to agree there is no real need gripe about punctuation.

    We have mailed him 2 battery packs to compensate him for his experience.
    And have gone even further that these are not 2000 and were upgraded to 2 5000mah nimh batteries.

    I know things like this can happen. I run a one man LHS and during the Christmas rush this can go to pot real quick. Went home yesterday sick as a dog. I find a note on my door this AM from a customer that showed up at 5:30. Dennis

    Its tough when your short handed but even tougher when you are short handed and trying manage with 100's of customers online and walking in during the holiday rush.

    My phone during the holidays never stopped ringing longer than 10 minutes and it wasnt just people asking about product it was customers online asking about orders and so forth so it can get hectic.

    I normally have 5 people helping me so when everyones spending time with family over the holidays your banging your head to try to keep up.

    Dear sir,
    I got horrible service Sunday evening at your shop... can you please send me two 5 cell 5000 mhr batteries too?
    Thank you for your earliest consideration in this matter.
    Seriously, it sounds to me like you went above and beyond.... any chance of you opening a store closer to me?

    RE: Bad experience at Razor hobbies in Baytown Texas

    Well i got the batteries that he sent me and turns out that one of the batteries is bad, i emailed him to let him know about it on thursday, 1-26, and never heard a response. it dosent do me any good to have only one batterie when i have an emaxx, guess ill go back to the batteries i had to buy at another place when he initially told me that he had them in the store. i still stand by my initial statement that i do not recomend this shop/guy to anybody, poor customer service and poor product support.

    If I read it correctly, I thought they sent these batteries to you at no charge ?
