Hang Loose Records


Recommended Posts

Hi,

Anyone had any recent experiences with HL? I've bought from them in the past, but seem to have trouble getting a response lately.. I'm even thinking of giving them a call..(international one for me).

 

Johann and Juergen from Hang Loose are two incredibly disorganised fellows. Or so it seems anyway. I and a very good friend of mine have been very annoyed with them on a number of occasions.

It is not unusual for them not to respond. Mostly this is the case when they do not have the ordered CD's on stock, which happens very often, and you are asking for a shipment date, because you have been waiting for weeks. Is this the case here ?!?!

I have given up on Hang Loose in the meantime and rarely order from them. Waste of time. I would send them one more reminder threatening them that you will cancel the order, if they do not reply. This usually helps.

I've purchased from Hangloose once in the past and don't recall there being any problems. Maybe a bit slow to post but that doesn't bother me much as long as it arrives within 4-6 weeks I'm usually happy. In fact I was browsing their website today and considering another order. Even though the Australian dollar is still very weak, there are quite a few new releases and re-issues that I really want so I think I'm just going to lash out and make a bulk purchase from one of the retailers. I'm deciding between AOR Heaven, NEH and Hangloose at this stage.

Georg Siegl from AOR Heaven definitely is the better choice in Germany. At least he has the stuff on stock.

Yeah, I've always found AOR Heaven very reliable...just wish their international postage was a fraction cheaper

Yeah, I ordered quite a lot of stuff from him on ebay. This site is lousy, though ! How do you ever find anything ? But I agree, he does have good prices.

Yeah that isn't too bad I guess, for some reason I thought it was more expensive than that.

I've had great experiences with NEH, AOR Heaven and Schmankerl Records...

 

NEH is great to deal with, I've never had one single problem.

I do think there prices are a little high but I still buy from them since their service is so damn good.

I think Georg at Aorheaven is great to deal with. I ordered many years from him before Ebay in the good old days. Had only great experiences all the time.

 

Georg from AOR HEAVEN is absolutely the best!

 

I had good luck with HANGLOOSE back in the day, but haven't purchased from them in at least 6 years.

I have bought from Hang Loose several times. Had no problems at all. I buy from them, Schmankerl, and NEH for most new releases. I used to buy a ton from Georg at AOR Heaven but he lost my business a couple of years ago by failing to respond to 3 polite e-mails I sent him over a period of time in regard to my orders. The last two orders I had with him all showed on my order that I was being charged in US dollars but both times he charged my credit card in Euros and I paid a hefty fee for Visa to convert US dollars to Euros. So I refuse to buy from someone who can't be bothered to at least explain why he started doing this to a good customer.

i did hear back from Hang Loose today and apparently Jurgen had a bad cold and was out of the office several days... so everything is cool. i was just expressing my frustration. They do have some good deals that i couldn't find elsewhere. thanks for all the comments!
