“Beautiful kitchen”

Written on: 18/10/2012 by Lulu33 (1 review written)

From enquiring about a new kitchen to delivery everyone was kind and helpful. The kitchen designer was helpful by giving me ideas I would not have thought of. The Caledonia kitchen is wonderful, finished off to a very high standard. I was amazed how easy the units fit together. The wipe clean doors are so easy to wipe over and are quick release for painting walls etc. There is nothing that I do not like about this kitchen everything is spot on. Thank you so much to Wickes and I will certainly… Read Full Review

HELLO LUL33,

I DIDN'T KNOW THAT POSH PEOPLE USED A STORE SUCH AS WICKES. YOUR REVIEW SOUNDED VERY MUCH LIKE BERNARD MATTHEWS, ADVERTISING HIS TURKEYS AS BEING - BEAU-TI- FUL.. ANYWAY, GLAD TO HEAR YOU ARE HAPPY WITH YOUR NEW CALEDONIA KITCHEN, A BIT ON THE CHEAP SIDE, BUT I GUESS IT WILL SERVE THE SAME PURPOSE AS OTHER GOOD QUALITY KITCHENS DO., IE., PREPARING AND COOKING BERNARD MATTHEWS BEAU-TI FUL TURKEYS.

“Fail to delivery”

Written on: 11/10/2012 by Gem132 (1 review written)

Free next day delivery sounds too good to be true....it is! Supposed to receive our delivery between midday and 6pm.....at 6pm my partner had waited 1 1/2 hours after he should have finished work for the delivery - when he called up he got to speak to the delivery driver who said he couldnt find the office (which is not difficult to find!). The delivery hadn't turned up by 630 and by the sounds of it didnt try to deliver at all yesterday! after us having to call Wickes to reschedule, they… Read Full Review

Having recently had our new kitchen bought and fitted with the Atlanta Range from wicks of Hereford, I can only state that from choosing what items we needed from everything including all excessories eg. taps etc with the great help from Daren who also designed the kitchen down to every detail, and a first class fitting from Gary and Colin who i must say were very friendly and nothing was to much trouble for them, now we are enjoying the lovely kitchen all down to WICKS many thanks to all.

“What a dump!”

Written on: 22/09/2012

Visited the Watford branch today and what a complete dump it was, there was 1 guy on the till n two youngish looking blokes wondering around on the shop floor, the store was untidy, unkept, basically looked as if it was closing down. certainly didnt look like any of them cared, i did try to get a question answered on a particular type of door lock n the guy didnt really make any effort except to give me a brochure n point me to the area where they were kept. it was empty but for 2 locks in… Read Full Review

“Service at your Grantham store”

Written on: 18/09/2012 by chriscame (1 review written)

Over the last weeks I have spent over ten thousand pounds on a new kitchen ,slabs, and decking goods. I complained to your staff on more than one visit about your delivery charge and discounting arrangement which seems available to some customers and not others what is going on? Your kitchen department are well organised and helpfull but the rest of the store staff are unhelpfull and often while serving you are talking to their work mates as though you do not exist. If the store does not… Read Full Review

“The best DIY store certainly in the North !”

Written on: 12/09/2012 by MsVhappy (1 review written)

My experience of WIckes as a company is SO different - I can't believe all the rest of these reviews. My local store has very friendly staff who go out of their way to help. I have made many purchases from WIckes, both big and small, and always have been more than happy with my purchase. The guys who delivered my laminate flooring recently, came as promised and were far more cheerful than most delivery people! Many of my family have gone for a wickes kitchen or bathroom on my recommendation… Read Full Review

“Rip Off Delivery”

Written on: 06/09/2012 by Shaggy169 (1 review written)

Ordered some kitchen units and a worktop online as they were too bulky for me to take home from the nearby store myself. The delivery then turned up when I was at work even though they were supposed to call me before hand to organise the delivery time. Had to phone to reorganise delivery. When it did turn up the delivery men moaned about the first missed delivery then refused to take the goods upstairs to my flat, just left them outside. Was charged £25 for this. Would rather have struggled to… Read Full Review

We had to return an item that was faulty to WIckes in Hall Green Biirmingham.The staff were so obliging and apologised for the problem. We bought our kitchen from the same WIckes and we are so pleased with it ,it's still looking brand new four years on. I would recommend them to anyone… Read Full Review

Entirely the fault of management decisions to promote staff from the shop floor who are not up to the job, poor training, staff treated poorly, national minimum wage.

But enjoyable talking to and offering advice to the customers!

Oh well we have move on!!!!

“Don't Order Online!”

Written on: 21/08/2012 by seedweevil (1 review written)

Ordered a shower online on the 10th August before 4pm for next day delivery. The shower never arrived but i thought i'd give it a couple of days just in case. When it still hadn't come the following Friday I phoned customer service. I was informed that they had tried to deliver twice to the wrong address (The right address was on the VAT receipt that was emailed me) They apologized for their mistake and said it would be with me on Monday 20th. No show on Monday so another day wasted waiting… Read Full Review

Wickes off A406 is a complete joke! Full of rude & incompetent staff. They all look like they dont want to be there & no one has a clue about their products. I wouldnt go back to Wickes to buy a paint brush! Avoid this company and go to B&Q as its much better… Read Full Review

“Terrible Service”

Written on: 19/08/2012 by JRoper (1 review written)

Ordered online, a week in advance, a big and bulky delivery, however on the day of delivery the Driver decided he didn't like the look of our road (i.e too tricky to bother with) and wouldn't deliver, when we called the delivery mgr and then customer service for help it was the start of several hours of sheer frustration with calls not being returned, people being downright rude and no one actually being bothered to help us. We ended up having to hire our own van and go and collect the timber… Read Full Review

“Four Panel Pine doors”

Written on: 17/08/2012

If you think these doors are cheap,think again.I bought five of these doors and two of them started blistering in patches near the centre and glue marks showing through after about a week of finishing with Wickes products.After a visit by the manufacturer our claim was rejected,although we were previously offered replacement doors by the store but obviously that meant paying for fitting and finishing again. The claim was rejected on the grounds that the top and bottom of the door was not fully… Read Full Review

Edin (branch) disgusting service Pam(manager) Stephen Easson (design Team) compulsive liars, wickes buggered up the order and they were not interested in fixing out the problems, blamed the error on the computer! Brilliant to start with until they had your money, after sales shocking, not interested in helping you out. Pam is the manager of the branch couldnt help herself let alone any customers, Stephen Easson never at his work always off with family problems due to this completely buggered up… Read Full Review

I was looking for a new front and end bath panel to brighten up my bathroom and after my wife found one on wickes site she phoned to see if they had them in stock.The employee said that they had and it was agreed he would put them to the side for her as we stayed 50 miles away. when we arrived at the store later we were shown the panels.. They didn't resemble the shape of the panels we ordered earlier, the employee was really quite impudent saying I can assure you these are the panels that you… Read Full Review

“Wickes - Poor service and even worse customer service”

Written on: 07/08/2012 by Geff (1 review written)

When Wickes told me my order would be delivered between 12 and 6, I naturally assumed they meant after 12 and before 6. Apparently not! So when 6 O'clock came and went and I called customer services, do you think I got an apology? One is entitled to dream! What I actually got was denial of liability. 12 to 6 is a big enough window of opportunity that they set themselves and they confirmed it only that morning. Someone has to be preesnt to sign for delivery or the items will be taken back to… Read Full Review

“Website SUCKS”

Written on: 07/08/2012 by BenTheReviewer (1 review written)

I recently tried to place a relatively large order via the Wickes website and is almost like they didn't want me to order anything. Firstly everytime I added something to the basket it would almost destroy my computer and when you are doing this 5+ times it gets pretty frustrating and then I could not sign up to finally check out because of "server errors" or "the mobile site can not display this page" (I had to try checking out on my phone because my computer would not let me process the… Read Full Review
