    You should check every ticket every month anyway, not just because you've got a big bill.

    Jewsons are one of the worst. They'll quote one price (written quote) then bill you a different figure. We're always chasing credit notes and often the credit notes are incorrect too.

    They're a flamin' nightmare.
  4. I have had troubles with them on numerous occasions - now I only use them if I really have to - I've had the bills in before, then phoned up to complain and they took nearly half off some things, seems like its one of their policies or something.

    Phone and threaten that you'll never use them again, depends on how much you spend, but it might do the trick

    I stopped going to my local Jewsons (Farnham) about two months ago because I had a big row with one of the muppets behind the counter. Their discount system is a complete joke and setting up terms on items you buy frequently is fine until you realise how over priced they are in the first place!

    I don't use them any more, Wolesley are far better. I get them to sign the del note with the price, never had an invoice problem since.

    As a person who spend much of my working day dealing with merchants Jewsons being one of our preferred suppliers. I can sympathise and know where you are coming from. Having also worked at a merchant I cannot see any logic to the extorant high list prices from which discounts are given.

    You are perfectly within your rights to ask for Proof Of Deliveries for materials. However did you not think something was wrong when you got invoices coming through. You should have posted to you a few days after each delivery an invoice with a statement at the end of the month.

    As a matter of interest what Jewsons is it that you deal with. I have contacts over much of southern England.

    Hi B&S, I go to that Lidl's quite often especially in the summer to stock up on Lemonade when I'm working!

    I had a mate who lived in Farncombe, just down the road from you. If you go into Farnham Jewsons there's a girl in there called Shellie, right B1tch!
