“Voicemail for 3 weeks”

Written on: 13/08/2015 by Corbridge1 (1 review written)

Ordered two shooting sticks, received only 1. Tried to get in touch for a week before the event they were bought for, but just went to voicemail. Now have been trying for 3 weeks to return the single item (I had to go and buy 2 for the event) but all the time, every time, goes to voicemail. 3 e-mails unanswered. DO not buy from this shop unless you like pouring money down the drain… Read Full Review

“Can I leave ZERO stars rating?”

Written on: 09/08/2015 by BrynnMiranda270 (1 review written)

Received a broken item, they refused to refund saying that the manufacturer needed to be consulted. A month later and they haven't replied to my emails and their two telephone numbers go straight to voicemail. I think it is a one-man band kind of shonky establishment, fleecing people of their money. Appalling business. I will be taking this further… Read Full Review

“Cancelled order, They still have my money.”

Written on: 15/07/2015 by AntoniusBlock (1 review written)

I originally placed an order for some items that were shown as in stock. When I realised that the order was unlikely to be fulfilled on time I cancelled the purchase. The order was updated to cancelled quickly. The order had not been despatched so there are no returns issues. I have asked when My refund would be processed and have heard nothing at all. The payment was taken straight away but getting it back appears to be a bit more tricky. looks like I will have to go to the card company IF… Read Full Review

“Where have all the honest reviews gone!? Stay clear!”

Written on: 02/07/2015 by grSweeney371 (1 review written)

Couple of days ago this company was flooded with bad reviews on this site but somehow and very luckily for the business owner it has all gone!? I just wish I noticed the reviews on this site before ordering anything from CNF, as all the other negative reviews suggested I was faced with horrible customer service / the lack of one! I purchased an item from the website based on the value and was all straight forward ordering and receiving the product. When the wrong item was delivered, this is… Read Full Review

“Awful Customer Service, avoid if possible”

Written on: 24/06/2015 by WarrenCarter (1 review written)

Delivery of the goods that were ordered from the manufacturer were relatively prompt however when we found a problem with the item it took over a month to get the money back from the company. Many attempts made to contact the company but not reply, when eventual contact was made, they had no understanding of the contract law and no knowledge of sales of goods act and generally a particularly unpleasant experience. If you like a nice simple life with no hassles then avoid using this company at… Read Full Review

“A bit of a joke”

Written on: 22/06/2015 by DeepDiver (1 review written)

Sleeping bag and a sleep matt; both excellent products,but my partner also bought as a surprise gift for me from elsewhere. Tried to return my products, which were later than expected, by getting return address and return number as stated on returns page. I tried calling every day for almost 2 weeks on the two numbers supplied on website several times a day, no answer, left messages. I filled in the contact form 3 times. I emailed, and tried several iterations of the email on website but got… Read Full Review

Hi,
The item sent is exactly what was ordered and confirmed by Outdoor Revolution who ship their products directly on our behalf. I have responded to your single e-mail on 9 June 2015 and cannot be held responsible if your ISP puts it into Junk Mail or Spam as is the case with all gmail, yahoo, googlemail etc. accounts and as your e-mail is gmail we cannot help the spam filter. I am quite happy to take this up again with OR if you call us and give further details.

This business should appear on Rogue Traders. It seems they do not care about their customer service. I have had a recent review removed at the owners request because I was telling the truth. Stay away, I'd rather catch Ebola than buy from this business again

“STAY WELL AWAY”

My partner purchased a permanent gazebo having seen it advertised online. Last weekend the box arrived and it appeared the fittings and instructions were missing. We attempted to contact the company and left messages and emailed the company asking that they contact us to correct this issue. As we required the gazebo for an event we were forced to purchase another as the one sent from CNF was not fit for use due to missing parts. The email address and both telephone numbers are not… Read Full Review

I bought an away day awning from this company. They issued the wrong type after I spent hours trying to put up. Therefore I had to cancel outr Tripp. When I compliiand they asked for photos etc which I provided. A new awing was sent out and I was able to put up but it still had the patchy spots on all parts of the awning. Which was on the original one and CNF stated this wasn't good.

Dear Davis Egan

Please state the whole truth when making comments like you have just done.
You ordered an awning from us expecting immediate delivery even though we advised you that we were moving warehouses and it may take longer than usual. You refused to accept this and we went out of our way to find the stock that was in storage due to the move and ship it to you. You then contacted us about some patches and as stated we did request images. We then replaced the ENTIRE awning and not just the canvas. Furthermore we also offered you a refund on your delivery costs PLUS a goodwill gesture that you accepted and agreed that you would consider the matter closed. This review proves that you tell selective bits of information that make you look like a victim when in fact you have been more of a storyteller than a man of truth. If you are going to say something tell it like it is and dont leave half truths.

“Broken goods, No contact.”

Written on: 27/04/2015 by JayMcCartney317 (1 review written)

My 5 daughter saved her money to buy a bike, which we ordered from CNF outdoors. When we unpacked the item the break cable was broken, the chain guard snapped and bid chips all over the paint work. Box not damaged.... Tried to contact by email twice called 5 times (if you are lucky enough to get on the holding system don't expect to get through even after holding for 45 mins.) I am so upset for my daughter who is in pieces about it and so angry no one will sort it out. DO NOT BUY FROM THIS… Read Full Review

Hi,

As soon as you contacted us with regards to the broken Bike I called you on your mobile even though I was in a meeting at the time. We arranged for Gelert to collect the broken bike and as explained at the time stated that the collection would only take place 10 days or so later due to the warehouse being closed for annual stocktake which you agreed to. Once the bike was in our warehouse and checked as per protocol a replacement was sent out to you. You recieved this parcel as and when we advised we could get it to you. I am sorry that you initially recieved a damaged item but we did everything to resolve the issue at the time.

Ordered some jerry cans, took my money, delivered wrong ones and admitted it by email and promised to send correct ones. Received nothing, will not respond to emails and does not answer phone. Taking money and not supplying goods is a crime! Only wish I had read the many poor reviews before ordering. Unfortunately can't give less than one star!… Read Full Review

dear Sir, your replacement jerry cans were despatched to you a week after we acknowledged our picking error. I have checked with our courier and they have apparently "lost" your order which we only became aware of through this forum. I will have 2 further cans e-mailed to you with todays courier - if I can trace your order number, and apologise for the inconvenience caused.

Ordered a skottel braai which was in stock and would take 3/4 days for delivery. Two emails and three telephone calls later all of which promise a response. Absolutely nothing. Have complained to the credit card company who will now raise a dispute form. When you phone the company they still invite you to place orders online. My recommendation is avoid and save your money and the worry… Read Full Review

I ordered a tent which was dispatched in good time. Problems occured when I found that the tent was faulty ( it leaked in moderately wet weather which should not happen with a tent as waterproof as this one). Was asked for photos which I sent straight away ... and then nothing. Asked for the RMA number (in order to return the tent and get a refund) but despite trying several times was not given one. Got my money back from the bank in the end - thankfully a credit card purchase. I would not… Read Full Review

On our own purchase we paid via debit card but were able to reclaim the funds via a chargeback claim.

Don't let them get away with taking consumers money, should be on watchdog.

We ordered a tent porch from this 'company' (one man band) and during the interim found it much cheaper, however item had already been dispatched. Cannot fault that process to be fair...was timely despatched and delivered. Problems arose when we wanted to return it for a refund under distance selling regulations because as stated we bought another much cheaper.

Terrible company, you place your order they take your money, they say it's on the way, then some time later it's 'out of stock' and you will get a refund - trouble is you never see that refund. We emailed, rang the mobile, rang the landline - never an answer and no one calls back. In the end my bank got me my refund. I reported them to police and trading standards.

The size turned out to be too big so we called about returning it (having just discovered their returns policy had been changed days before our order was placed). They told us their relationship with Columbia had been terminated and that we could not return the gilet. So… Read Full Review

Ignore any companies so called returns policy, the only one that matters is the one by UK law, the new Consumer Contracts Regulations giving you the rights to cancel the order the moment you place it and up to 14 days after placing it. You then have a further 14 days of which to return the goods.

I would call trading standards, we persued further with the bank for a refund after returning our item, it would not hurt to see if anything can be done, and even if not it is another consumer complaint against them.
