“No refund you may sell it on.”

Written on: 19/09/2015 by Matt119 (1 review written)

Purchased a tumble dryer from currys in Taunton. After waiting a week for delivery as planned it worked once and all the displays failed. Called currys who sent out a hot point engineer who diagnosed a faulty circuit board and machine was not repairable. After discussing with currys we went into store for a refund but were told this was not possible until the machine had not been collected as we could sell it on after receiving the refund. So now having to wait another week to get it collected… Read Full Review

“Worst service so far”

Written on: 18/09/2015

I ordered a Beko refridgerator a week ago, paid all the costs upfront and they promised to deliver it next day which is sunday. Me and my husband unloaded all the contents in the old fridge and defrosted it as they requested so that it will be easier for them to recycle it. However we received a call way past our intended delivery time saying they can't make it there is no access for their truck on the road to our home on weekends. Having understood the problem we asked for the next possible… Read Full Review

“Delivery disaster”

Written on: 17/09/2015 by BenjaminDolan374 (1 review written)

If you'd like to feel like a valued customer then don't chose Currys. So this is my story.... I order a fridge online which is delivered and installed by Currys who are all in a rush. When they leave I notice a dent in the door. Two further conversations with Currys and Hotpoint as they decide who is at fault and then I get another email advising me that the product will be replaced on 7th September 2105. Having waited in until 12pm on the allocated day I called Currys to ask what was… Read Full Review

“"We`ve had your Money now get lost!"”

Written on: 15/09/2015 by Sinclairs (2 reviews written)

Strange Returns policy for refunds or exchanges,that if the box has been opened they wont take goods back,even if unused.Not sure how they can tell if brown tape to re-stick was orignal or mine? maybe they train staff up to examine manufactures packaging practices? With so much competition out there you would think this company would want the edge, instead of haemorrhaging sales to their rivals.As thats exactly happened with me,as not wanting to buy something I would be stuck with if, it didn t… Read Full Review

“Shocking customer service”

Written on: 04/09/2015 by DianeM007 (1 review written)

My washer broke (wouldn't drain)and I rang the know how team as I had bought the contract as it promised a two day repair. I was passed to Hotpoint/Indesit who don't offer a two day service. So I bought a service that Currys sub contracted out which cannot be provided?? I pointed this out and after a lot of calls an engineer came out within two days. However he "fixed the issue" but would not plumb the washer back in and wait and said "it'll be okay now for sure". Surprise surprise still… Read Full Review

“Happy to sell, Not so happy to return.”

Written on: 01/09/2015 by BvbK (1 review written)

I bought a new asus laptop with a lifetime Microsoft card which I was told would cost £110 (not including laptop) with a free McAfee protection for a year. This was not true, the Microsoft cost £89.99 and the McAfee was £19.99 which appalled me as they told me incorrect information about the product I was buying. I emailed their customer services telling them this they said to return to the store and they would help. 2 days later I went back to the store and asked to refund the whole thing… Read Full Review

“Cooker hob”

Written on: 31/08/2015 by ClarenceMcGuire (1 review written)

Brought cooker hob Belling in April 2015. Had it fitted and it broke down 2 weeks later.contacted Curr,s who passed me on to manufacture. They came out fixed it and low and behold broke down again tonight 28th August i middle of cooking family meal. If I brought a faulty pair of shoes the shop would replace them but Curry,s just pass the buck to the manufacture they are not one bit interested. We will never buy from them again. I encourage people to buy from smaller company,s like high street… Read Full Review

“Knowhow No Way”

Written on: 27/08/2015 by Crossen363 (1 review written)

The ordering online and payment followed by next day delivery arrangement all went OK however the two jokers that arrived to remove the old and fit the new had not a clue how to reconnect the simple pushfit connector and left the new machine in the livingroom with all of the transit packing fittings in the middle of the road outside and the old one still in place. Promised to return if recalled, when called we were informed that it is against there "policy " to return and even refused to… Read Full Review

“On Line Disaster ”

Written on: 26/08/2015 by MikeRobinson (1 review written)

On Thursday 13th August 2015 I placed an order with Curry's Online for a SMEG FAB32RNN Fridge Freezer. I then received a confirmation email stating that delivery would be delivered on Monday 17th August 2016 which I understand was from 7am to 7pm. I employed someone to be present from 7:30am when I left the house until 4:30pm on 17th August 2015 to take delivery. At 3:30 I contacted the house to see if it had been delivered and nothing had arrived. I therefore, left work early and arrived… Read Full Review

“Lack of interest on delivery of item after money payment.”

Written on: 06/08/2015 by balders02 (1 review written)

I ordered a Hotpoint combi microwave oven online, money was taken from my account but no notification of when delivery was to occur. I phoned the contact number from email receipt and was told to contact Hotpoint myself. Surely if I buy an item from Currys then if any information I required should be sent by them not me having to phone their suppliers. I am very disappointed with you and will not buy from you again… Read Full Review

“Computer”

Written on: 03/08/2015 by Aylin243 (1 review written)

While we were standing at the computer bench looking at a computer a new label was affixed and the price went up by £20! When I asked about this (the spec had changed a little - 8 x USB instead of 6) I was told that they didn't have any of these computers, just the display model. But surely, if the price has gone up and the spec has changed, this is a new product? No, I sent the guy away to check on why the price had gone up from £609 to £629 and he couldn't give me an answer… Read Full Review

Washing machine motor burnt out after four weeks.....

“Awful!”

Written on: 23/07/2015 by rob20042004 (2 reviews written)

Bought an integrated fridge and paid for installation. Two guys arrive. Made a complete mess of it, door simply doesn't close. Called to complain. A week later we get a guy to come out to look (look being the operative word). Apparently there was a fixing bracket that wasn't fitted and nowhere to be found. He left saying he'd get it ordered. Chased when nothing heard after 3 days. New date given for someone to come. New guy arrives and doesn't know what he's come to do.......and obviously no… Read Full Review

“Great Service”

Written on: 17/07/2015 by Gallaghertb1977 (1 review written)

Haven't been to Currys for about 15 years due to a bad experience with a fridge/freezer. However, our TV broke down completely and was unfixable. Went to Currys in Harlow reluctantly, as all the other electrical stores in the area, seemed to have closed down. First time, dealt with Noor who was really helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We didn't purchase that day, but he wrote down everything we would need and recommended stuff (not always the most expensive). What a helpful guy!… Read Full Review

“Never again I will buy from Currys/PC World”

Written on: 09/07/2015 by Millerzp266 (1 review written)

Rude staff and useless customer service. Bought a faulty laptop, did not want to exchange it as it passed the 21 want days warranty. They send it to the manufacturer, manufacturer didn't repair it. I am stuck with a £400 broken machine. Overall a terrible experience. When I tried o complain about the service the staff wasn't as friendly as they were when they tried to sell me all their junk. Manager was no help as well. I will never buy from them again… Read Full Review

“You would have to be mental to shop at Currys/PC world”

Written on: 27/06/2015

Terrible service. IF YOU DON'T READ THE WHOLE THING READ THIS: AVOID CURRY'S AT ALL COST. VILE STAFF AND PATHETIC 'STANDARD COURSE OF ACTION' Curry's have dominated the market for domestic appliances so when my grandad needed a new Tv for the kitchen we went there. Whilst purchasing the JVC television the staff were incompetent and took ages to even find the tv. Curry's attempted to sell us one of their pathetic guarantee's which we refused because of a previous poor experiences and a plethora… Read Full Review
