Advance Auto Parts - Incompetence Galore

The level of incompetence within the Advance Auto Parts organization is unfathomable.First, they don’t even inspect the parts to ensure they aren’t defective before they ship them to customers.

Then when the customer receives the defective part there is an expectation that the customer is to pay for return shipping. After explaining that such an expectation is not only unreasonable but blatantly dishonest they finally concede to sent a prepaid return label. They send you a return label with a corrupted file that can’t be printed attributing the problem to a computer issue with the customer. When they finally realize that the prepaid return label is actually a corrupted file then they agree to have a UPS truck pick up the return.

All the while they make the customer reorder the $140 part. They then don’t add the email address of the customer to the order so the status of the order can be checked and then state they cannot add the email address.

I will stop here because the incompetence continues on to infinitum.If you have nothing but time to deal with these dullards be my guest but I will no longer be doing business with these incompetence idiots.
