Delivery not Available (UK company)

Why would a UK company (PC World) advertise a £1000 computer on line and say "Delivery not available"?

Run out of Warehouse stock

Possibility, but they always do a local stock check when you order. This notice comes up before you order.

The machine is available for click and collect locally, and you'd think it wouldn't would be possible to put it on an existing run and charge a tenner.

Can you not do a click and collect order - take a taxi to pick it up?

To encourage you go into the store where they will try and flog you extras

£100 Plus. Not economic.

I'm going to try the helpline.

Tried the helpline.

Indian call centre.

Useless.

A lot of these retailers have certain products unavailable for home delivery. You're right, it doesn't make any sense at all.

Why don;'t you take the old fashioned way of contact with an actual letter to the head office in the UK?

I very much doubt that the company is going to resort to that tactic - there will probably be a valid reason for the screen message, it's just a question of finding out what it is.

If they won't deliver and it's unreasonably expensive to go and collect, just buy a computer from somewhere else.
