We were recently in exactly the same situation.Forklift paid for in full with a promised delivery date of 2 weeks.

Exactly 6 months later no forklift and numerous excuses.

We finally tricked them into supplying a VIN so then we registered a security under the PPSR and bingo we got our forklift - only just in time from the look of this forum.

We will never deal with Jodie or Graeme Dillon ever again.These people should be banned from starting up again.

I am concerned that they may have started under other name and will take more people for a ride.

We eventually received our 11.5 ton forklift after months of lies and broken promises, minus the air conditioned cab I might add, no I am very pissed off as I had agreed to lave this fitted at a later date, no chance now I guess :( , thankfully we financed our unit and insisted on inspecting it prior to signing the final paper work.

Not sure if there is any chance of us getting the a/c cab, if any one knows any info I can post my contact number.

From day one the entire Rapidlift team were full of b/s, never answered calls and when they did answer emails everyone of them just past the buck, don't know where they got the company name from but it certainly wasn't lived up to.

These guys should not be in business .

12-297MR Brisbane businessman charged with fraud

Friday 30 November 2012

Mr Graeme Anthony Dillon, a businessman from Hawthorne, Queensland, appeared in the Brisbane Magistrates Court today on fraud charges, following an ASIC investigation.

Mr Dillon, 49, is charged with two counts of fraud that concern a number of transactions in relation to his former Brisbane company, Independent Forklift Services (Qld) Pty Ltd and its North Queensland subsidiary, both now in liquidation.

ASIC alleges that between November 2006 and May 2007, Mr Dillon dishonestly induced Capital Finance Australia Pty Ltd to provide finance to the companies by lodging false invoices for the purchase of forklifts.

Mr Dillon was not required to enter a plea and has been released on bail on the condition he surrender his passport and not approach any point of departure from Australia.

The matter was adjourned for further mention before the Brisbane Magistrates Court on 18 January 2013.

The Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions is prosecuting the matter.

Background

The criminal charges were laid under section 408C(1) of the Queensland Criminal Code and carry a penalty of five years imprisonment. As the charge in relation to Independent Forklift Services (Qld) Pty Ltd relates to a sum greater than $30,000, the potential penalty (for that charge) is increased to a maximum of 10 years imprisonment.

Editor's note:

On...

On Friday 22 March 2013 in the District Court in Brisbane, Mr Dillon was committed to stand trial on a date to be fixed. His conditional bail continues.

Lets hope he goes to JAIL:

We have been chasing Jody and Graham Dillon in the courts for 6 months over a fork lift ordered last year.Was told it had arrived and to pay (jan) so we did.

We were in the final stages of having assets seized when I received a phone call today advising they were in liquidation. The person who informed me has advised there are over 60 customers who have paid in full and never got a fork lift.

What a joke.

I have look Graham in the eye and there is no remorse at all.And now they are starting a new business www.forkliftrentalsaustralia.com.au

RAPID LIFT - Shoddy Dealers

Brisbane, Queensland 8 comments

Bought a forklift, paid for it. 2 months later received something close - older (3yrs), with more hours and broken (oil leaks, no electrics, stuffed radiator...)6 month later - still nothing "it's coming soon" is the general response.

When they are called, either the phone isn't answered or they hang up on you. Promises are cheap, but need some action. waiting on someone else to buy a new one before I can get a 2nd hand one. Not sure what happened to all the different ones we got sent photo's of, but none of them exist anymore.

RAPID LIFT - Fork Lift Rip off

Brisbane, Queensland 107 comments
Not resolved

Update by user Apr 29, 2013

Today whilst in Brisbane we took the time to visit Rapid Lift at their Coopers Plains outlet, to discuss the location of our fork lift.(supposedly 'on order with the factory')

In typical shonky salesman style, they all ran for cover and didn`t want to offer a name, let alone a business card. Result - they offer no solution or help to resolve this rip off.

We are looking to put together a legal case against this company to help ourselves & others. Also to warn potential future customers not to deal with this company.

Please call our office on 61 2 9999 0150 if you would like to get involved.

Original review posted by user Mar 20, 2013

We ordered a new fork lift thru Rapid lift at a cost of AUD50,000.It took them two months to deliver the incorrect fork lift to our Newcastle depot.

Naturally we asked to have the correct fork delivered only to be told we will have to wait a couple of months to receive it.

(Factory in China to blame) NINE months later still no closer to having the correct fork lift.Do not deal with Rapid Lift Pty Ltd, 786 Beaudesert Rd, Coopers Plains, QLD.

They are liars & thieves!

so do your self a favor stay away from these duds

Everyone that worked at Rapid Lift was in on the scam. They can blame someone else but at the end of the day they knew the company was unable to supply the forklifts - all they were interested in was getting their pay cheque including commissions each week.

IF YOU WANT TO DO THE ROUNDS IN THE RING THING I WOULD BE MORE THAN PLEASED TO TAKE THAT UP, POST YOUR NUMBER AND I WILL CALL. Regards RIPPED OF BY RAPID LIFT TOWNSVILLE

PS Sales reps really don't keep selling items when they cant supply, when I spoke to both Fazer and Tony Brady they both told out right lies about the non delivery of my forklift that could not be delivered despite being paid in full but when I got a mate to call both the following Monday both Tony and frazer (sorry I would rather call him FxxxWIT) could supply the same forklift straight away as they are in stock.

Pissed off.He never mentioned anything about fair trading though why on earth should he talk to them??

the poor guy was just a salesman (like all the others) being crucified for no reason, unfairly being stabbed fair in the back because a company he had absolutely 'nothing to do with financially', or 'had any management control of' what so ever has gone into insolvency and people didn't get their forklifts.. ?? It makes no sense?? so if Macdonalds went into insolvency and people didn't get their hamburgers would you blame the staff??...No because its ridiculous..

I'd say if you got 'correct facts' or better still had the guts to actually meet the guy, look him in the eyes like 'myself and my wife' and got 'the full storey' not some twisted, anger fuelled, busy body 'fictional' finger pointing rendition you would in fact feel very ***. It's easy to sit there in your bubble world as an cowardly anonymous sheep and simply rubbish someone without fact.

What a load of old *** if thats true.From what I have found out Jody is the Director/Owner, Frazer was the silver tongued salesman who was selling off photographs of forklifts that didnt exist or were sold months ago and re-advertised, Graham would then procure forklifts similar once Frazer had closed the sale.

Thats why you never quite got what was advertised...different hours, a year older etc. Graham would source based on Frazer selling something that at the point of sale did not exist, a deposit or payment in full would then be received but in the case of new forklifts never or rarely ordered from the suppliers and the money pocketted or re-invested in used stock. Once they had your money they would screen their calls.

It appears to me that if you bought a stock truxk generally they would supply and deliver but if you bought off a photo on the website it did not exist at the point of sale and they would not most of rhe time over the last 18 months fulful your order.His sister was the book keeper by all reports but only dealt with suppliers.but Graham, Jody and Frazer were the main players in getting people to part with their money and knowingly not be able to supply forklifts.

The day before these mongrels turned their phones off I was encouraged to pay almost $1,000.00 to buy a Safety cage. "Put the money in the bank and you will receive a transport tracking number and delivery within 3 days" is what I was told.

Within 5 minutes of sending my PO I had an invoice sent to my email address with bank details and I duly paid the money.

Not having received the tracking number by 10am the following day we made a couple of phone calls none of which were answered so we left a ton of messages. Why OH Why was I one day too early??

The ASIC notice to wind up was served on these mongrels in August 2012 so why are they not compelled to advise consumers that their goods may never be delivered.

I feel for anyone who has been hit by these thieves. No matter what the amount of loss is, there is hardly an honest business in the market today that can stand any loss let alone organized and legal theft.

Two of the toughest words in the world to digest are "Buyer Beware" when in actual fact mongrels like these should be forced by law to say "Buyer be warned"

Have just bought a forklift for $9,000.With parts and a service on the way (apparently).

Have had no response from Richard for the past 2 weeks and assume we are now apart of the scam. The walkie stacker works perfectly, however we have just found the exact forklift sold at auction 3 months ago for $679...

We are assuming it has been painted and resold.Feeling very uneasy about the whole thing, and the meeting at their office in Welshpool seemed like it was closing down although we were told they were just starting up...

BE CAREFULL

We paid $5k deposit 12 months ago and rang up regularly and there were always excuses. We believed we had lost our dough but there was always someone to talk to then recently I spoke to a Ken Gargun there who had come in and taken over trying to sort out the mess...he seemed genuine but maybe he was a consultant and his conclusion wasn't pretty.

The liquidators are Robson Cotter Insolvency Group Pty Ltd, tel (07) 3270 8500.

I spoke with ASIC to report them re trading while insolvent, and they told me I need to speak with the liquidators, who will do a report to ASIC. So I suggest everyone speaks with Robson Cotter

We are in WA and yes we have been done by rapid lift as well to the tune of $20,000.We dealt with a guy called Richard Finch.

He claims he just works for rapid lift and that he is not involved but we think that he is the WA arm to the QLD scammers.

Any one Know who the liquidators are?

i was told by Richard up until the day he closed the doors that my forklift was on the truck from Queensland.

i will be taking legal action against him also because he was to spineless to actually let me know what was gong on.

Hey we are in WA as well, we went to two locations related to the business.We have had dealings, slightly more successful then yours but still dubious.

Could help you track down some leads.Not sure who the liquidators are but the site in Welshpool might have some leads or anything...

My wife and i bought a forklift from Richard end of 2012, it arrived slightly later than agreed but in all fairness was everything it was supposed to be.I would probably buy from him again (clearly not through Rapid Lift).

I was disappointed to read this blog and only came across it by chance.

I'm aware Richard wasn't at the helm of the ship just a poor salesperson who has been caught up in the captains mess.Personally we think he was just doing his job, Gail and myself genuinely feel sorry for him.

Well it's all over now - liquidators have been appointed to the company. Whatever you have paid it is lost. If you ever catch up with the owner Jody Dillon, maybe you can ask for your money back from the $3.65m house she bought in 2010 (which funnily she moved out of and rented out in March this year...about the time people were paying deposits etc and not getting their forklifts, and the same time her husband Graeme Dillon was committed to stand trial on fraud charges).

Same with us - paid $4k deposit on new walkie stacker, no sign of it.Managed to speak to the salesman I dealt with (who was decent and called me back), but he had left the company 3 weeks ago as they hadn't paid him for 2 months.

Tried to call the office 6 times but it diverts to a mobile with voicemail. Don't return calls. Fax line is disconnected.

Did some further research and the woman who owns the business (Jody Dillon) is married to Graeme Dillon, who was charged and committed to stand trial on fraud with a previous forklift company, Independent Forklift Services.Google "Graeme Dillon forklift" and you'll find the info.

So yes, the company is bad news, but I don't think they are actually operating anymore, so if you have paid a deposit or paid for a forklift, you won't be getting ti or your money back

They took a $4500 deposit off us for a forklift, now they wont supply it or return our money or phone calls.Do not deal with these guys.

They are bloody criminals. The wont even answer their phones.

You can only leave a message on their machine so they can screen their calls.You have been warned.

I was referred to these guys by a mate in Gladstone and waited a bit longer than quoted (9 days longer) to get my fork but when I did I have to admit I was stoked, it was as good if not better than what I expected and pricing was sharp. Sure every company cant always be perfect (even my own freight company) but I rate em!

I don't know where you are getting your information from, but these guys are completely legit and have nothing to do with RapidLift. You can walk in there and touch the forklift you are about to buy and walk out with it if you want, unlike RapidLift.

We ordered an electric forklift 12 months ago with a 6 week delivery time frame - paid $21k up front and still no forklift (yes China docking/shipping issue rant as well). But seeing as it's not me but a large (not saying who) organisation, if we don't get contacted soon it goes to legal to sort out which I think will sink this ship. :grin

DO NOT DEAL WITH RAPID FORKLIFT - you have been warned.

We have had a similar issue. Forklift took 2 months to arrive after payment and then it was 3yrs older than quoted with more hours (the hour meter didn;t work so who knows how many more) we ordered new forks and the ones that came didn't even touch the ground. "They did before we changed the tyres" was the response I received (they changed the left front drive tyre), so the elves obviously got to it on the ride up here.

Upon arrival none of the electrics worked and the radiator was stuffed, as well as the bearings in the tower.

Six months later we still don't have forks that touch the ground or the machine that we ordered.

Good Luck
