Hi there ATSers,
I wanted to bring you up something that caught my attention today. Knowing what had happened in Japan concerning the reactors at Fukushima, I was on
the run to get a Geiger counter so I went on amazon.com. The item I wanted was a Geiger counter named INSPECTOR by radalert. Asking about infos for
the shipping of the items here's the answer I received by one of their customer service employee.
Amazon customer service answer to my question :
Hello, I've checked your order and can confirm 'Radiation Alert INSPECTOR ' is now back-ordered
(emphasis added). I'm sorry about this
delay--we certainly didn't expect this would happen. Our shipping estimates--such as "Usually ships within 4 to 6 months"--take into account the
time it takes to receive the item from our suppliers, package it, and prepare it for shipment. Our supply of some items is limited, and these products
sell out quickly. we're not sure when we'll be able to get more. When an item is listed as "Temporarily out of stock. Order now and we'll deliver
Ok great amazon doesn't have my item or maybe it was already decided to have these product removed... Anyways so in my search I went on other
websites via research of an INSPECTOR Geiger counter by radlaert using google.com.
The second website I went to was www.medcom.com...
. I clicked to the contact us tab on the left, fulfilled the
infos required and sent them a message to know if I could get an INSPECTOR Geiger counter for a personal use. ( the order infos to full up were only
for commercial use ). Guess what? It's been more than a week and still no answer
Third website, here again they are not taking any orders for any geiger counter. Here's the website :
I could go on and on, there are plenty of websites saying they are not taking orders anymore or simply not answering questions related to the subject.
This bring me to ask myself the following: is there any way to get a hand on a Geiger counter by any mean? What do you guys think or know on this
industry right now ? Feel free to enlight me on this as I have no dam clue on what to do right now other than keep on searching.
