I would like to warn other travellers who are thinking of purchasing marble inlaid table from Agra Marble Emporium (Address is A Block No.4, Taj Nagri Phase-2, Fatehabad Road, Agra. Website: www.agramarbleemporium.com)
I purchased a marble table from this shop on 2 January 2013.
During the sales pitch, they assured that the table top comes with a wooden base, and I had a choice of a base with or without a bulb.
I decided to purchase a 15 inch x 15 inch table and paid in full. However because the marble was a bit grey, they said they would make a new one for me and it would be delivered within 2-3 weeks, by courier.
When I received the package on 21 January 2013, I was surprised that I only received the marble top without the wooden base. I wrote to Mr Raj Kothari the manager there and he said that the purchase did not include the wooden base and that it was not included in the sales bill. I explained to Mr Raj that during the sales pitch I was assured a wooden base, else where would I place the marble table on?
After my travel agent (who was also present when I purchased it) spoke to him, he agreed to send the wooden base. Initlaly he wanted me to bear the charges for the courier but we argued that it was supposed to come with the initial purchase anyway so I shouldn't have to bear the cost of their mistake. The wooden based took a while and his excuse was that they were making a brand new wooden base and it took time. The base finally arrived on 20 February 2013 but I was disappointed to find that the wooden base sent was old - there was mold on the wooden legs and the screws used were rusty. There was also no light bulb fitting as promised.
My reason for writing this is to warn other potential purchasers from this shop that when you buy something ensure that EVERYTHING you purchase and every single FREE item that comes with your purchase is itemised in the sales transaction because you pay for this item up front in full.
Also you might want to check on the amount of customs duty in your country and maybe ask them to reduce the cost on the sales docket else you might end up paying a high customs duty on the item.
