“Ramsta - these are not lights, these are dulls”

Written on: 09/12/2013 by Ramsta (1 review written)

We bought two packs of these 'lights' for our Christmas tree - they barely glow when turned on and made a very sad affair when it came to turning on our Christmas tree............ We recommend you avoid them at all costs. Its over an hour's round trip to get to Lakeside so we've gone elsewhere locally to buy some bright colourful lights for the tree - all is well now… Read Full Review

“Very bad delivery”

Written on: 18/11/2013 by irinadmt (1 review written)

They only deliver during working days, without letting you know the exact hour. The guy who delivered rang my doorbell about 10 times in 30 seconds and didn't bother to help me lift heavy furniture up the stairs to the first floor. I'm only 1.6 m tall and some boxes were taller than me… Read Full Review

“1 star is generous ”

Written on: 11/11/2013 by Bairdini (1 review written)

Visited the store in Croydon and were told that ordering on-line is quick and easy for the larger items. We ordered a few items on the 22nd October and it is now the 11 Nov and still don't have everything. The home delivery is a joke. We were sent e-mails and texts with delivery dates on, but nothing turned up. Ikea didn't call us to explain, we had to call them. After many arguments on the phone, we twice had full reassurance of full delivery, dates and times. Both times we were let down. Each… Read Full Review

“Non-existent Customer relations”

Written on: 04/11/2013 by Harlowite (1 review written)

We ordered a sofa and 2 armchairs from the Lakeside Store on 3rd. September, (Ideal product from our point of view). Excellent assistant and also delivery men who delivered on the expected date of September 25th. However, no armchair covers. A telephone apology promised them for the following week., then a further call to say they would arrive on 24th. October. Nothing arrived then, or the following week. There has been no further contact from Ikea - yet their website says there are 6 sets… Read Full Review

“Delivery Nightmares”

Written on: 03/11/2013

As I write this review I am waiting for an Ikea delivery. The delivery was meant to take place between 9am-5pm today (Sunday) - it's now 4.30pm and I'm not feeling very optimistic about the possibility of recieving any of my items today. This is the 5th time Ikea attempted to deliver my goods. The first time around 4 weeks ago the Ikea delivery van broke down on route. 2 hours later then expected the van turned up and contained NONE of my £500 worth of products ordered. Delivery was… Read Full Review

“Avoid home delivery”

Written on: 02/11/2013 by roberthchapman (1 review written)

After ordering 12 items online and having their delivery cancelled twice, a delivery occurred today outside of the time we were told it would occur and the delivery contained.....one box of a two box item. According to the delivery man, this is normal - he had just come from delivering an order to a woman who had been cancelled on four times and when they delivered the goods it was a fraction of the items, none of which were correct. Trying to call IKEA, the queue to speak to someone is I'm… Read Full Review

“First time visitor”

Written on: 29/10/2013 by BradyM2349 (3 reviews written)

I went on my first trip to Ikea and was quite overwhelmed. Yes, they have every single thing you can possibly imagine, and it's overwhelming! I did find the layout of the store clever and I liked seeing everything they offer right out in front of me. But the whole being able to customize and choose these cabinet feet with this door--or maybe this drawer with this sliding door. It gets to be a little too much! Walking into the warehouse to pull the product was quite a surprise, but it makes… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/11/2013

Yes, the layout is "clever" - ie it is "clever" marketing. They make you walk past everything they sell, in endless zig-zags in the hope that you buy stuff on impulse. "Clever" for me however would be able to walk straight to the department where I intended to buy something,.

“I bought a desk”

Written on: 17/10/2013

I bought a desk from Ikea, the top arrived slightly damaged while the legs came a day later. You cannot e-mail them, they don't answer the phone and the contact us form advises that it takes 3 days to get back to you. Lousy service but the product does the job… Read Full Review

“Terrible place to waste your money in”

Written on: 14/10/2013

Ordered 3 chairs and a table, which you would think, is not that big of an order. Originally had to wait 2 weeks for delivery. Finally received my package today and the table top is missing. First thing that came to my mind, was - "Maybe it's my fault and I somehow did not order the table top". Checked it online and turned out that the top was simply not included in delivery and it was still being "Processed". Thought I should give them a quick call and clear this situation right up. Called… Read Full Review

“Don't buy online from IKEA!”

Written on: 10/10/2013 by Ardmark (2 reviews written)

As I write this review, I am currently on the phone and on hold AGAIN, trying to find out when my chairs are going to be collected. I had ordered a table and 2 chairs as a set, which finally arrived a day late and delivered, badly packed, by royal mail. I assembled the table and one chair, only to find that the chair wouldn't fit between the table legs! This despite the website pictures clearly showing that the chairs do fit! So after a 25 minute wait on hold I finally got to talk to someone… Read Full Review

“Amazing delivery service!”

Written on: 08/10/2013 by MHay6 (1 review written)

Having been refurbishing our entire flat for the past 3 months it's fair to say I've had more than a few nightmare deliveries (B&Q being the worst culprits). However the ikea items came on time as per my allocated slot and the delivery men were polite and courteous whilst lugging 25 heavy boxes up two flights of stairs. As a petite woman on my own there's no way I could have got the items up to my flat on my own. So many companies now only deliver to kerbside due to insurance purposes, I'm just… Read Full Review

“Terrible delivery service and no customer service at all!!”

Written on: 01/10/2013 by Gingadee (1 review written)

Ordered online, expected delivery to be good seeing as its quite expensive! Got a date and wanted to change it...so how do you do that? Answer, forget the normal email contact, online chat or simple web form! Oh no, thats too easy for ikea...how about ring continuously for half an hour at a time to try to speak to someone only to just give up ( which i think is the way they want it) and just accept the date and make arrangements. I have never known anything like it....get in the right century… Read Full Review

“SHOCKING CUSTOMER SERVICE”

Written on: 28/09/2013 by shanerose (3 reviews written)

Having visited Ikea a few months ago my wife and I saw a number of ideal items for our home. Having seen what we wanted in store we decided to order our goods online. After placing the order and paying for the goods we arranged a delivery date. Everything seemed fine until the delivery driver told us that we were 4 items short on our order. He said "I will inform the wearehouse that the goods were not with the order" "But you will have to call Ikea and arrange for the 4 items to be deilvered at… Read Full Review

“Terrible Customer Service - Does not answer safety issue”

Written on: 24/09/2013 by Archer123 (1 review written)

We bought a Besta Burs TV cabinet with tempered Glass top, along with the shelf/cupboard to position above (just like they display in their store). An ornament fell off the shelf and smashed the glass - it literally EXPLODED sending razor sharp shards of glass everywhere - and I mean EVERYWHERE. We had glass shards imbedded in the walls and many pieces travelled up to 20 feet away! The surface of a nearby table (also Ikea) was ruined by the force. If a child or someone had been standing… Read Full Review
