How to Order Spare Parts from Playmobil USA?
« on: November 11, 2016, 18:21:28 »
Hi all,

It's been years since I've attempted to order any spare parts from Playmobil USA.  Originally I did it by phone and then by e-mail, but the results and responses were usually immensely disappointing, often resulting in very incomplete orders and sometimes in no response whatsoever via e-mail.  Has anything changed since then?  Is it possible to satisfactorily order parts in the USA and if so, what's the best way to do so these days?  Thank you.

Jusitndo

Generally I think they prefer a phone call if you just have a few parts, and an emailed list if you have a longer list. I order about twice a year and use email since my list tends to be lengthy. They eventually send me back an invoice of what is available with a price and I call up and arrange payment then they ship it out.  Things have changed for Canada recently and I don't know if they have plans for changes in the US or not.

I placed a parts order back in January that I've had to call about twice because I'd never received it.  Twice I was told that it would ship at the end of that week. Today I got a phone call from the parts department. Because they don't actually bill your card until shipment, they had to get my card number again. Hopefully this means that the parts will arrive shortly
I'm glad that I'm not the only one :)

They took my charge info back in November but I never got the shipment. I did have one other package during the holidays get delivered by the post office according to tracking but not show up on my porch. I wish they would just go to getting parts orders directly from Germany like other countries are doing. Shipping costs would be higher but you can actually get the parts you want that way.
