Que Sera Sera posted a topic in Aussie ChatHas anyone tried to get some sort of compensation and if you have, did it work? We had our goods picked up by our shipping company on the 29th of June. Its the 4th of December and our goods have not even docked yet! The shipping companies website clearly states that we should expect our delivery even though its a shared container within 10 to 12 weeks! Now nearly 6 months later and we still dont have it. I rang in mid September because they werent answering any of my emails and the firl on the phone said " Oh you havent been sent any forms either, well your goods are due to dock on the 26th of September so I will send your forms!. That was the last I have heard from them. I got a letter from the shippers this side in October to cinfirm that our goods were now at sea :shocked: and they were very sorry that EVL had told us an earlier date but if I had an issue I would have to take it up with them as it was a different company! I went onto the ships actual website and it state that our container was loaded at Felixtowe on the 1st of October :arghh::arghh::arghh:. That means our wordly goods were sat at Felixstowe for 3 flipping months! And I was lied to when told they were now at sea in September. The companies website states it will be in regular contact and I will have my on consultant in regular contact:shocked: I didnt even know what ship they were on until a few weeks ago and I was given the wrong one first of all:mad: Is it worth complaining to Trading Standards in the UK, seriously I would hate for someone to have to go through this.
This may a silly question, but if I were transferring £200,000 via moneycorp, would I be at risk via the FSCS, in that if Moneycorp happened to go bust at the time of transfer would they go down with my cash in their pockets? Are moneycorp covered by the UK's £50,000 per person limit (or some other limit?) and should transfers be limited to avoid this type of risk? Similarly, are you aware what the situation is with regard to Australian banks and how much they are covered for? Should funds be split amongst institutions to reduce risk? I'm a worrier!!! Thanks for any advice Mike
Aparently due to the long delays at LCU they have issued a statement to say that all people stuck in the backlog at this time will be issued tickets to be redeemed at their departure airport so that they may travel as shown below for their journey to Australia.... :biglaugh::biglaugh::biglaugh: Sorry couldnt resist!!
