    Any Ramadan experts out there?

    On May 21st, I ordered standard sized bifold doors online which had a 4-6 week lead time, meaning delivery at the latest would be July 2nd.
    To cut a long story short, they’ve still not arrived and the company we ordered them from has today said the delivery has been held up by the manufacturers in Turkey and blamed it on Ramadan.
    Is this feasible, or am I being fobbed off ?

      Its feasible, most places will shut for a week around eid and the offices won't be doing much in the week before. Its basically Christmas for them and you can imagine what its like getting things done over here in the lead-up to Christmas and then the week between Christmas and New Year. The company should have factored that in, but as the dates of ramadan change every year its a little harder I guess. Likewise most customers in the UK will understand that ordering things around the christmas period may take time but won't think about ramadan, especially if its not clear the order is coming from a muslim county

      Many thanks.
      Trouble is I have little faith (no pun intended) in the guy ive been speaking to as one minute he said the doors were going to be dispatched from the warehouse in Surrey this week and then two hours later, they’ve apparently not even been shipped from Turkey yet!

      It's certainly feasible. Whether it's the real reason is another matter.

      Sounds like a bollocks excuse to me. I’ve worked with a few Muslims that fast during Ramadan, and they’ve all still put in a full day at work during the 4 weeks fasting. They might take a day off for Eid itself, but that’s it.

      should be built into the lead time or dont take the order if cant honor the delivery.

      This - I have a couple of Muslim colleagues and they always put in a full day during Ramadan. However, this is France, I don't know what the convention is in Turkey with respect to Ramadan but I suspect that you're being told porkies (pun intended).

      Sounds like this guy hasn't got a handle on things. He needs to open up and be more honest. But perhaps he is distracted, unhinged by the football and he isn't thinking straight. The key to this shipment is....are the goods in transit or are they still locked in storage abroad?
      He shouldn't be leaving you hanging like this but sounds like he has all the front in the world.
