I have spent a few days contemplating whether I post this or not but have decided it must be done as I dislike dishonest businesses a lot, especially when there are so many great Australians running local businesses having to compete with this crap.
In my experience, “Bad Soldier Hobbies” does NOT ship from Brisbane Queensland with a 2 to 7 day postage time as stated on their website. I have made 2 separate orders in the past month. The stock is mailed from Asia and shipping time has taken 14 days for myself, and I am located 2 hrs from Brisbane. The first parcel had a RETURN address of
Suite 32, Level 3, Building 4B
4 Lord St
Anyone that is well versed in dishonest ebay practices knows to avoid sellers from this location as they are Asians scamming Australians into fast shipping times which turn out to be a few weeks of waiting.
1st Order - Paid for on 23rd May and received in mail 6th of June. 14 days.
2nd Order - Paid for on 28th May and still awaiting parcel on the 8th of June. 9 days and counting.
I also contacted them asking why is it taking so long.
MY EMAIL - May 31st
Still no delivery of the two Bad Soldier Orders I have purchased. It is now day 8 since my first order.
Also, the tracking number you gave me does not work, it still says pending.
THEIR REPLY - May 31st
Yes it’s on the way, there is a delay on Australia Post end of things mainly with updates and processing on packages lodged over the last week.
There should be a notification when on Aus Post website when you click on the tracking with more details.
It should still arrive with no delays.
Kind Regards, Jess”
This lie is what mainly ticked me off, and caused me to pull the trigger on notifying our community of this dishonesty.
I pay a premium locally to support local businesses and receive my stuff QUICKLY. If I was happy to wait a few weeks for an order I would shop from an honest Asia based site with WAY lower prices.
AVOID THIS BUSINESS - If anyone can prove me wrong with this please speak up and I will retract my statement completely.
