XP Deus arriving tomorrow

Post by DOGMAN »

After a six year absence due to a heavy work load, I've ordered another Deus. Got a new perm, so looking forward to getting out. I'll probably spend tomorrow assembling, charging, uodating software? and inputting custom programmes.
Can't wait. 🤗🤗🤗🤗

Six years off? Blimey. I get twitchy after six days.

Glad to see your return ::g

Yes mate, DPD didn't deliver yesterday, so I'm chomping at the bit for it to arrive today.
Just have to write today off, as recovering from seven 12hr night shifts.
Off for 2 weeks now. =))

It will be DPD's failing and not Regtons - All parcel carriers are rubbish. I suspect it's been misrouted from their Hinckley hub, and having to go back around the system. You will get the txt and time slot delivery when they've found it. As said, as it's from Regtons it will be to latest software revision.
Good luck

This will be my third Deus since they were introduced. Top machine, but like every other machine, regardless of price and make (within reason) and being set up right will find it if you go over it.
Depends on your budget etc

Have they txt or mailed you a delivery tracking number? That should tell you what stage tour order is at.... don’t be surprised is you see “delivery attempted, card left”.....

Ha! Ha! .......er no. Regtons very apologetic, and as a token gesture refunded the cost of the Garrett pro pointer I had also ordered. Further stated they would contact DPD. To date, nothing delivered.

Regtons posting out another machine plus the extras I ordered Monday Royal Mail 1st class recorded, and no charge for the Garrett Pro Pointer. Excellent service from Regtons ::g and awful service from DPD. ;;z

Absolutely fantastic service by Regtons, they didn't need to do that....
Watch this space for "FOR SALE - XP Deus+Garrett pro pointer - surplus to requirements" :)) :)) :))
Shame on DPD for losing your parcel.

Hope you're soon holding the packet in your hands with a broad silly grin that you just cant hide!!, on your face!!
Can't agree more re Regtons, had a minor fault with my G. A
T. pointer (the light failed and it falsed a couple of times.)
Spoke to Nigel and Aaron at Regtons, sent the pointer back and within 24 hours was holding a brand new carrot. Mucho brilliant customer service.
Good luck when the Deus arrives 👍
