“SHOCKING”

Written on: 17/09/2014 by Mujtaba080372 (1 review written)

I have still not received my goods but I am mentally prepared already that I will not be having any good experience as the customer service has been atrocious. It looks like they just DON'T CARE !!! Extremely UNHELPFUL customer service - being such a Big chain they need to raise standards of their customer service else sooner or later people will start looking for other options as Ikea is not end of the world… Read Full Review

“Customer stress not customer service”

Written on: 11/09/2014 by puHardy139 (1 review written)

Trying to customer service get through is an absolute nightmare, I suspect many people just give up. Then they are most unhelpful. I will not use ikea again if I can avoid it and would recommend that people don't buy their mattresses. They are poor quality and e guarantee is a joke… Read Full Review

“Ikea Birstall”

Written on: 07/09/2014 by Morrisfk160 (1 review written)

The store itself was OK but nothing to write home about. Vast, dingy, aircraft hanger like space, not particularly well lit. Furniture was not brilliant but it was very cheap, which is probably why the place was so busy, being packed with people and their brattish offspring. We had to wait a long time to order the product, maybe they should employ a few more staff? Worst think is we opted for their "recommended" firm to assemble the furniture for us. I phoned up for three days running to this… Read Full Review

“Shocking Delivery Practice and Customer Service”

Written on: 02/09/2014 by littleleno (2 reviews written)

I purchased an Ikea Day Bed on 13 August 2014 and was very happy when they said it could be delivered the following week (Friday 22 August). I duly waited in for the arrival (between 4.00 pm and 8.00 pm). At 6.55 pm I received a telephone call to say that the van had broken down that was delivering my bed and they wouldn't be able to deliver my bed until the following Monday, I agreed to this as long as it was first thing as I could not waste another day sitting around waiting for it to turn… Read Full Review

Ikea Brooklyn. Only buy what you can carry by yourself. Deliveries are not reliable and what ever they told you was in stock when you pay for it may not and it may take a while to get it. The costumer service sucks as well… Read Full Review

I was told that the delivery would be within 24hours and it was not possible to deliver any later than that which made me take a day off from work with 12hours notice. The delivery was going to be next day in between 9-13. I have waited and waited... At 5 pm I called ikea and was tpld to wait... Wait and wait until 6 and called them back. They have assured me that they will deliver on the same day... I called another time and the costumer service gave me the number of the driver. I called the… Read Full Review

“Cheap and fast”

Written on: 17/08/2014 by Felixx (2 reviews written)

Most reviews are negative, but our experience was good enough that's why I've decided to place a review. We ordered a kitchen, and the delivery was next day. We had no troubles at all with Ikea staff. I think Ikea is good because most items are avaiable for a next day delivery. You can also easily DIY. Sure it's a huge company and humans make mistakes, but if we compare prices/quality - all is not that bad… Read Full Review

“Dreadful service”

Written on: 15/08/2014 by Leachtb206 (1 review written)

I went to an ikea store where I ordered some items to be delivered. I paid for the order to be picked and delivered. The sales advisor in store told me it would be delivered the next morning. My paperwork confirmed this. I waited in all morning, no delivery. I phoned customer services where I had to wait 30 minutes before I even got to speak to an advisor. When I did eventually speak to someone she told me the delivery wasn't due for another 3 days! I said I had paperwork that confirmed it was… Read Full Review

“delivery with missing items”

Written on: 15/08/2014

Bought a bed for my son. It was two items and could not fit in my car. So I ordered it online. I was given a delivery date (I had to wait 7 days), when the item was deliverey it was missing box 1. If you have been to Ikea, you know that it states in big letters that this item is 2 boxes. The delivery driver took back the box saying that the store would contact me to arrange a new delivery date. This did not happen, I had to contact them (30 minute call waiting) and then arranged a new delivery… Read Full Review

“Home delivery is terrible”

Written on: 27/07/2014 by nyBradley84 (1 review written)

We ordered kitchen units to be delivered at our home address and when we asked the shop assistant for details he told us we'll get those in a text message. The message stated a link to ikea website and our order number but in order to find out when the delivery arrives the website was also asking for an email address! Since the order was completed in-store and the assistant didn't take this we weren't able to log in. The call center number provided is completely useless. I was on hold for over… Read Full Review

“Shame I can't score lower than 0.”

Written on: 23/07/2014 by ArelySharpe79 (1 review written)

I ordered some wardrobes yesterday, 19/07/2014, for delivery today, 20/07/2014. I have to say, the delivery service from IKEA was the WORST delivery I have EVER experienced. Given I complete all my purchases online, you can imagine I have encountered a lot of delivery services. I was provided with a 7am-1pm slot - absolutely fine, and perfectly acceptable. However, this is ONLY acceptable if these times mean anything. It is NOT acceptable to get to 1pm, and have had no update whatsoever… Read Full Review

“Buying an IKEA Bed”

Written on: 22/07/2014

Just had my first IKEA experience and quickly concluded it will be my last. Travelled 150 miles to the store in Glasgow to furnish my son's flat, part of the purchase was a bed. The bed unbeknown to a first time customer does not include all the parts required to assemble a bed. The basic frame comes separately from the mid beam and slats, had i looked online prior to visiting the store i may have become aware of this. Unfortunately i did not consult the website and as a result ended up with a… Read Full Review
