Received cabinet broken waiting for replacement parts.

Written on: 16/08/2010

Groan ... I can see from these reviews there is a blatant pattern of poor quality service and cynical trading practises.
I will never shop at Habitat again.

I always thought them so overpriced anyway... mostly designer chipboard & melamine, but it is their customer service that is appalling: they told me items are in stock when they do not have stock as they are discontinued, and then failing to refund, and then not refunding postage for items never posted. You constantly have to watch them… Read Full Review

I agree with so many of the comments on this page. They simply treat there customers like scum! They have had £145 of my money for three months, the item I ordered is no longer available, they are 'in the process' of refunding.... still waiting!… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/06/2010

I ordered a sofa 6 weeks ago now. Habitat have said the sofa would be delivered within 4-5 weeks. When I rung after 4 weeks they told me to check the bottom of the receipt which said they would call within 5 weeks to arrange delivery, how convenient. I waited for their 5 week call which did not come! 6 weeks later I called them again to check what the status was and I was told that there was no record of delivery and that I would be called in the next week by their delivery company (again… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/05/2010

I have just had a Porto sofa delivered with Cole chair and table. The DPD refused to try and get it up into my flat, and they had only 2 men for a sofa that obviously takes 4 men to move up to my floor. Ridiculous. I measured the space and it fits through with a little persuation.

I called Habitat and am awaiting their response and solution.

Not a happy bunny,

Took a special day off work also.

Written on: 06/05/2010

I must say, that having read most of the reviews on here that I am pretty shocked! I have used the online service about half a dozen times this year and have only once had an issue with an out of stock item (which was resolved with a swift refund causing no delay to rest of my orders). When I dealt with the online customer service team they were extremely helpful, I can honestly say that they made me feel at ease when I was panicking a little! I will definately continue to use Habitat for MOST… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/04/2010

Pathetic, horrible customer service. DO NOT use their online shopping. They shipped 6 wine glasses and 8 tumblers, each wrapped only in tissue with no padding. All but 3 were smashed, and they sent all varieties of colours instead of the colours I ordered. They made me send photographs as proof of the damage before they would issue a refund, which I did the same day. I was told I would have my refund w/in a week. 21 days later, they still ignore every email. When I call they tell me it's… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/03/2010

well, my delivery never took place! I ordered a sofa (Porto chaise sofa bed) in January, the 8th 2010. I ordered on the phone and finally on Saturday, so exactly after 11 weeks, the delivery company shows up...they did not even try to fit the sofa into the lift. They just said that the office should have sent 4 men instead of 2 because as I had pointed out on the notes of the order, I live on the 4th floor. Result: I spent a whole day chasing Habitat and try to understand what the next step… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/03/2010

As with various reviews on this site, I have also had a terrible experience with online delivery from Habitat and their delivery company, DPD. After they had failed twice to deliver my item as arranged before Christmas, I phoned and cancelled the order. I then returned from my New Year break to find the item in my hall - despite having cancelled it, and NOT having authorised delivery via a neighbour. In order to get a refund I was then told I had to wait in AGAIN for them to collect it - and… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/02/2010

I purchased a Lay Wall Mirror from habitat at a cost of £169 plus a nominal delivery charge of £4.95. I had been waiting since late last year for this item to come back into stock and had contacted habitat to confirm it had not been discontinued.

The item arrived with no warning so they left a while you were out card. I arranged to be at home the next time they courier delivered.

I arranged for someone to come and hang the mirror for me and when we took it out of the box it looked as if it… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/01/2010

Avoid the Habitat website. I placed an order and they took my money, it should then have been a simple matter of delivering the goods. Except it wasn't. They sent me an email to say they would be despatching part of the order at a new (higher) price. I contacted their customer service department and got no response so when the part order arrived, I rejected it. There has never been any sign of the rest of the order. I phoned and managed to speak to someone who wasn't authorised to cancel orders… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/01/2010

My experience with Habitat will be my first and last one. I can't believe their appalling customer service, namely the delivery service they use (DPD). To start with we ordered two large picture frames online; we received a despatch note email from them approximately a week later. After a few days of waiting for the goods, I rang their customer service department, and only got through to a human after a few hours of trying. The goods eventually showed up two weeks after ordering, but when we… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/01/2010

Bought goods on website, money taken, all fine. Except I was called to say they weren't in stock and wouldn't be available for months! I decided to cancel. I called to check where my refund was and "customer services" were unable to do ANYTHING?! They said they had to email a depot. Then an email to say my cancelled not in stock goods had been despatched! (They hadn't!). 1 week later no word, another few days I called. Couldn't speak to a manager, they couldn't even tell me whether the order… Read Full Review

I have been left very disapointed and angry with the service i have receievd from habitat. Over these last few months i have spent over £1000 in habitat but i am now very reluctant to shop there ever again. You can get some beautiful things from there and great furniture but the hassle you have to go through and the way you are treat is totally not worth it. I orded a sofa, i was told it would be delivered in approx 4 weeks in store however it did say 6 weeks on my recepit. It has now nearly… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/08/2009

I have had the worst experience in my life with Habitat Nottingham. My own store closed following a purchase of cutlery - Katja which developed on 4 knives a series of rusty stains. Whilst they claim this cutlery to be 'dishwasher safe.'IT CERTAINLY IS NOT AND HAS TO BE WASHED BY HAND TO keep it looking anything like decent. Why do they advertise dishwasher safe if it isnt? Don't ask them for a refund without your cash receipt. British law states that a retailer CANNOT DEMAND A CASH… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/07/2009

I have signed up twice to a registration system designed to notify me when the crockery I purchased was about to be discontinued. Twice, the system has failed and I have been left with no alternative but to phone other stores or pay for multiple postage to get the replacements I need from stores all around the country. Habitat has no customer service number on their website and when I emailed them to complain about the issue I recieved no apology and no alternative to the above. I would not buy… Read Full Review
