I really don't know why so many people have had problems with Chums. I have shopped for years and only once had an issue which turned out to be no fault of theirs (the item was actually left in my greenhouse but no-one told me). I've just bought a sofa and chair and we are very happy. Its hard to get old-fashioned quality at a decent price. Try yourself before believing all these negative comments… Read Full Review

When I first started using Chums, they were OK, but in recent years, they seem to have gone down the pan. I ordered some cotton trousers some time back but the stupid thing about them was that the tie cord fastens at the front INSIDE the trousers, which means that the waist band of the trousers themselves bells OUT at the front. Earlier ones I bought from them had the cord tying on the OUTSIDE of the trousers, so that the waistband was held IN. Another annoying factor is that the… Read Full Review

THIS IS THE WORST COMPANY I HAVE EVER DEALT WITH.And I have dealt with many as I am chronic ill and only shop online.
Beginning of November 2010 I ordered some chair cushions for myself. These eventually arrived. Were not great quality but were a special offer so not expensive and do the job for now.
I aloso ordered some armchair cusions for my mother and her neighbour, clearly staing the delivery address which is a few hundred miles away from me. After a couple of weeks two for my mother… Read Full Review

IF ONLY I HAD LOOKED AT THIS SITE FIRST!!!
Ordered several items, they took the amount from my card IMMEDIATLEY, 26 Nov. Part of the order arrived just prior to Christmas. Many e-mails later, they phone me, 30/12/10, saying that overdue items will not be stocked or never were! and will send me a cheque for the balance which I should receive in 10 - 14 days. They CANNOT credit the card they took it from!!! I now have to pay off my card for something I do not have. So they will have had MY money… Read Full Review

Ordered two items. One picked incorrectly (corduroy trousers sent instead of fleece lined waterproof), the other an unacceptable substitute sent without first seeking acceptability.
An appalling introduction to this company. I shall not use them again.
It remains to be seen how quickly they refund… Read Full Review

I ordered two pairs of trousers for my husband on 6 July. One pair arrived and was advised the second pair would be despatched shortly. Despite several e-mails I am still waiting. I have requested to cancel the order and have asked for a refund. I am still waiting. I really wish I had read the reviews on this site before ordering from this Company. The trousers are for my husband who is severely disabled and I am unable to take him to the shops for clothes… Read Full Review

*******BEWARE OF THIS COMPANY*******
Most online traders do not take your money until the goods are despatched. 1 month later, it finally arrived. They sent the wrong item. It is now another month, they haven't collected nor refunded. This item was for my Mum who is a disabled pensioner just out of hospital recovering from a serious illness. Customer service is not highly rated in this situation - God help the rest… Read Full Review

He just cannot afford to loose this money from his pension!
Useless company!… Read Full Review

I placed an order on 4th of July and sat back and waited, paid the £4.00 for postage so didn't expect to wait for too long. By the 10th, still no delivery so I sent an email to enquire on the progress, received a reply on the 14th saying that my order was in THEIR warehouse and would be leaving shortly for delivery.
On the 15th I received another reply, from a different member of staff, to the same email first of all getting my name wrong then asking for my postcode. The postcode was on the… Read Full Review

Goods received but shoes too small. Clearly not size on box. Returned immediately 28 days ago but no refund forthcoming although they say refund in 10 working days. No answer to e-mails. No response to letter so far. Refuse to pay excess 0871 phone charge. What is worrying is that some conditions of return not not comply with Distance Selling regulations ( they cannot charge a restocking fee and cannot charge for repacking )… Read Full Review

I don't know how to put the rating as 0.5 but I would put it at even less than that.
I placed an order on 17th Dec, recieved an email comfirming my order and stating the items were in stock and would be recieved in the next 7 to 10 days. The money was taken from my account on 18th Dec.
6th Jan - Phoned the company to ask where my order was. I couldn't get through. When i called the automatic system stated the call would be answered within 3 min, and being charged at 10p per min. After 10 min… Read Full Review

I ordered goods in Sept 09, still awaiting delivery. Overcharged and had to be reimbursed. Made numerous 'phone calls and when I was able to get through I was told blatant lies, i.e your items were dispatched yesterday only to be told over a week later that they had just been sent! I,ve paid for these goods and I am still waiting. Trading Standards are the next place of call. Wonder if Chums read these reviews if so they should be ashamed… Read Full Review

I ordered a pair of shoes on Chums, and paid for express 48 hour delivery as they were needed in a hurry. My credit card was charged, and I received a confirmation email from the payment system and from Chums themselves. A week later, still no shoes, and on phoning the customer care number provided in the email, I was informed that they had no record of my order, and that they couldn't help with online orders anyway - I'd have to use email… Read Full Review

I have used Chums before, and service was satisfactory. However today I managed to obtain a quick reply, and was told that my order had been despatched on 6th January. The delay was because they had been busy. I used to work in customer support, and would never have considered that an excuse. I do not have high hopes of receiving my order and found your site while searching for information on any other problems with this supplier… Read Full Review
