“Assembly Angels rip off ”

Written on: 25/03/2013

Bought my furniture at ikea, and was delivered the next day, fantastic. They advised I used Assembly Angels to put it up for me, so I arranged this with them. Waited in all day for the assembly angels, continuously called the office and got no return calls, they finally turned up at 9.30pm at night, they were rushing and chipped a part of the wardrobe, and now the wardrobes are on a slant !!!!!!! Do Not Use Assembly Angels from Ikea at Edmonton , terrible service !!!!!!!!!… Read Full Review

“Disastrous Replacement Parts”

Written on: 12/03/2013

Visited the Milton Keynes Branch from Peterborough ( Ironically 3 Miles from Distribution Warehouse, still no shop as promised by Ikea when it was built ). Visited several times and decided on a Wardrobe. Went to order it in-store and was told some would be delivered from Milton Keynes, some from Peterborough...wasn't given an exact price but figured out of was going to cost a fortune to have bits delivered from 'Up The Road'. Walked out of the shop disappointed. In fairness we had been… Read Full Review

“bathroom cabinet farse”

Written on: 27/02/2013 by GazLlandudno (1 review written)

Bought a Godmorgan 2 door high level bathroom cabinet from Ikea for £90 online as its not availble in shops. When it arrived I assembled it, drilled the wall and hung the cabinet and then fitted the doors which overlapped in the middle. The hinges are standard type hinges but they would not adjust using the screws available. I called Ikea - waited 20 minutes in a cue and then the customer service person said they would send out an engineer. He arrived and had not seen this problem before - had… Read Full Review

Coila123's Response to GazLlandudno's Review

Written on: 16/03/2013

Purchased Ikea Godmorgon 2 drawer unit - 6 months later unit trashed wood veneer mouldy and peeling and Ikea voiding the guarantee. Same with Harlig kitchen doors purchased 6 months ago. Veneer peeling off and 25 year guarantee not honoured.
Avoid Ikea at all cost - cheap and nasty product and no guarantee.

“No complaints here”

Written on: 21/02/2013

I ordered my ikea furniture (tv stand and sofa) then I read all the negative reviews on this site and got worried that I had made a major mistake! Well, I got an email straight away with a provisional date for the 13th december, then a text with an actual date for the 18th dec, just a week later than the provisional so not too bad. Then got a text the sunday before with the time they would deliver. Delivery driver phoned an hour before delivery like the text said they would so was so far so… Read Full Review

“Ridiculously sloooow delivery”

Written on: 16/02/2013

I ordered a batch of things from Ikea online ten days ago. Order went through, charged my card, paid a tenner for delivery which is pretty steep but I assumed would be expedited courier of some sort. (given Argos do quick delivery for about a fiver). Over a week later, items supposed to have already arrive, turns out haven't even been dispatched yet. 40m wait in a phone cue to find out why the stuff I've already paid for, with expensive delivery, which is now overdue the already lengthy… Read Full Review

“IKEA Sale of Goods Act - we don't care!!”

Written on: 22/01/2013 by Dwallingor (1 review written)

I've spent over £1000 with IKEA over the last 3 months buying furniture for my new flat but in my last purchase i have well and truly been let down by this company and I afraid that i cannot risk a purchase again with them in future!  I bought A TV unit for £275 and paid a delivery charge of £35 for the luxuary of having the item home delivered. I paid this company on the 28th November and waited in for my delivery on 15th December 2012 - Everything was going great.... until I opened up… Read Full Review

Always let them know that you will take it further. Plenty online review sites, also Trading Standards, Which, Watchdog it doesn’t take many complaints to get a story on the BBC then it will get sorted out as millions watching and loss of sales. Good luck

“Time-wasters”

Written on: 02/01/2013

I checked the availability of a certain bed sheet online and was reassured to discover that they claimed to have over ninety of the item at IKEA Milton Keynes. But at the shop I was told both (i) that they had none in stock and (ii) they had some in stock but they didn't know where they were. I tried to contact them by e-mail but this is apparently impossible due to technical problems. … Read Full Review

“Poang armchairs subject to sudden collapse”

Written on: 02/01/2013

The bolt on the left arm of poang armchairs is subject to sudden shearing causing the collapse of the chair. This fault is well known to IKEA who refuse to acknowledge it. I have been through 3 levels of reporting with IKEA following the collapse of one of our chairs due to a failed bolt. This casued the fram eto fracture and threw the occpant backwards to the floor. IKEA, as a goodwill gesture offeres us a replacement bolt, now why would I put an unrelaibale compnent in to a broken chair?… Read Full Review

“Chair not fit for purpose”

Written on: 16/12/2012 by bournerpoodle (1 review written)

We 2 armchairs and a sette from Ikea Leeds. One of the armchairs started to discolour on the arm and instead of being grey became khaki green - yuk - so reported it to Ikea who sent what was supposed to be an independent firm to look at it and take pictures. The man arrived and duly took pics and said would write a report and in about a week I should hear from Ikea. In fact we had a phone call the next day to say the report said it was not a manufacturers fault. Surprise, surprise. The… Read Full Review

“Good service”

Written on: 14/12/2012

I had read reviews below and was prepared for a disaster while actual service was good. It took 2 weeks from payment to delivery, 2 days more then was indicated on check out, where it was noted that the actual date can vary. Several texts & email were sent indicating exact day and approximate time, on the day they had rang and gave me rather accurate time - so communication good. All ordered packets are delivered. Though we have not opened them & started assebling the item yet & will review it… Read Full Review

“Home delivery service is joke”

Written on: 12/12/2012 by JasonHolliday (1 review written)

Ordered 24 items on the 21st October for the kids playroom. Payment was taken straight away. Delivery came on 16th December,just short of 4 weeks later. 4 Weeks to deliver standard off the shelf items is pretty poor in itself, however the deliver was short of some vital components (table legs etc.) Ikea were informed minutes after the delivery was made, in the hope the missing parts were still on the delivery lorry which could turn back and complete the delivery. I was informed this was not… Read Full Review

“Took our money, said they would deliver but didnt!!!!!”

Written on: 21/11/2012

Really annoyed.... we went to IKEA Ashton and saw a sofa in the bargin section, we explained that we live in South Wales and they said it was fine and they would deliver it for £50. We waited over 1 hour to arrange this and spoke to 3 different members of staff who all agreed with the delivery arrangements. We then drove home and a day later got a call saying they would not deliver as it is to far. We then arranged our own delievery service however they had put the sofa back in store despite… Read Full Review

“Good entry level home furnishings”

Written on: 15/11/2012 by brakenoodle (26 reviews written)

I recently had to furnish a whole house and being a bloke, can't be bothered shopping all over the country when Ikea has everything under one roof. I like the simple, clean design lines and the fact that most products are available the same day, including large items like sofas, washing machines and fridges etc. See it, buy it, chuck it in the car, bring it home, bish-bosh job done, easy. You won't get that at DFS. Quality wise it's okay. Assemble it with extra glue and it's solid enough and no… Read Full Review

“EXCELLENT ON EVERY LEVEL”

Written on: 14/11/2012

My wife and I read a lot of reviews of Ikea before we shopped there and many were not good, so we went to the Bristol store with a degree of trepidation. The aim of the visit was to buy two sofas. OK, the method of shopping in Ikea stores is not conventional, particularly having to follow a lengthy route around the store before you get to the check out, but you get used to it - and there are plenty of short cuts if you ask a staff member. I have to say that every staff member my wife and I… Read Full Review

“Ryanair style customer service”

Written on: 04/11/2012 by 3sheds (1 review written)

I only recently started shopping at Ikea but wish I had been warned that their style of customer service is similar to Ryanair. I went with a builder to pick up parts for two wardrobes. The woman at the collections area gave me a print out for collection. When we found there was only one package for one of the sets of doors we queried it but they said it was what had been ordered. Got home to find we didn't have the panels for the doors. Drove back (an hour trip) the following day. Picked… Read Full Review

“In stock but 3 weeks to deliver STINKS”

Written on: 26/10/2012 by Joerose (1 review written)

I can understand that if an item is not in stock it will take time before it can be delivered, but when an item is in stock and they charge you £35 to deliver then 3 days later "THEY TELL YOU IT IS GOING TO BE 3 WEEKS TO DELIVER" that really is UNACCEPTABLE............ IKEA that customer service STINKS… Read Full Review
