“Great service”

Written on: 06/05/2014 by Crockett49 (1 review written)

Recently visited homebase Chichester, had great service from a guy, I don't usually write reviews. However people are very quick to write negative comments. I thought it would be worth taking the time. I must admit I promised I would leave some comments about a month ago after purchasing a chest of drawers, although with moving house I got side tracked. He was polite and helpful, even assisted with my many different payment methods cash card and voucher. He also offered assistance to my… Read Full Review

“Homebase WC Unit”

Written on: 04/05/2014 by Duke_Nukem (15 reviews written)

I bought a WC unit from Homebase and, despite the seat being part of the set, its hinges are obviously of "one size fits all" design. The way the hinges fix to the pan allows several points of adjustment (why isn't the distance between the brackets standard?) each of which is a point of weakness. One of these adjusting points for example relies the tightness of a small 5mm screw to stop two parts swivelling relative to each other (at which they fail), and anyway you do not know how to set… Read Full Review

Homebase don't design them, they only buy them from manufacturers. Unfortunately the buyers appear to be clueless about what is well made and what isn't, I expect they only think of what will sell and how much profit they can make from it. Your experience matches mine with a Homebase cistern flushing lever kit whose design and engineering must have been dreamed up in a mud hut in a Dehra Dun back street.

“Poor poor goods”

Written on: 28/04/2014 by Veraranting (1 review written)

I ordered a sofa in December 2013 I was still waiting in April 2014 finally received said sofa April 28. Not the sofa ordered then am informed sofa is actually an Argos sofa not a Schrieber/Habitat lies all lies. How is this legal, moral or right, who is helping the working class to get value/service from the large companies that just take the money and run (fob you off).


I returned the appalling sofas then attempted a refund which took another hour out of my life while the staff and manager

Homebase and Argos are the same company! There's no deception here, it's a well known fact they're the same company. More fool you if you don't like argos, why buy from homebase.

I for one, did not know that Argos and homebase were the same company and would have made the same mistake.
If I shop at homebase I would not expect to get an argos product.

Clearly it's not a "well known fact" as this consumer didn't know. Poconnor23 did not know, and I did not know. Point is it IS a shameful deception as the brand delivered was not the brand ordered and paid for.

“Homebase Wolstanton Stoke On Trent”

Written on: 24/04/2014 by 113George (1 review written)

I visited the Homebase Wolstanton Stoke On Trent yesterday & wish to compliment the staff on the way the store is operated. A member of staff helped me find what I needed, & gave me advise about the products I was looking for. The store was very well stocked, all the displays were neat & tidy with clear pricing for each product. I will definitely be visiting this branch again. Well done!!… Read Full Review

“Diabolical delivery service !!”

Written on: 23/04/2014

I have been waiting now since Saturday 19 April for a delivery of tiles. Still I am waiting despite reassurances from some very helpful members of staff at Homebase. It appears that their deliveries are made by DHL who are unable to meet their own delivery arrangements despite their letters, phone call and texts! The most frustrating part for me as a customer is that no one at Homebase is able to let me have a contact number within DHL so that I can follow up where my 21 boxes of tiles are… Read Full Review

“No Quibble service”

Written on: 18/04/2014 by ShylaJordan (1 review written)

Bought two tins of satinwood paint. At checkout they were placed in small very thin carrier bag. Later when the bag was picked up the paint tin immediately ripped through the bag and fell, spilling out over a car park. Never thought at the time and obviously the checkout asst didn't mention it either; about the carrier bag being really weak. Returned to Homebase and explained what had happened at customer service. Got a replacement tin immediately without any quibble - great service, very… Read Full Review

“unhelpful customer service”

Written on: 04/04/2014 by creativejani (4 reviews written)

My mum bought a safety plug, recommended when she bought her a lawnmower at New Southgate Homebase on Monday March 31st. She is 88 and had my brother with her. The plug had instructions that said it was important to test it first. You had to press an orange button and see an orange light (very tiny.) She couldn't see the orange light and the lawnmower didn't work when she plugged it in. I tried the plug, too, and I couldn't see the light either. We brought it back to New Southgate and had… Read Full Review

“Nice Garden Centre, awful store”

Written on: 02/04/2014 by Goth_Doll (3 reviews written)

Bought a garden bench out there today which was in my opinion of poor quality and well over-priced. Said home delivery was not available on it but wouldn't give me a clear reason why. I'd spent £64.99 and other shops will give you home delivery if you only buy a tenner worth of stuff. The store itself (Inverness retail park) was quite grotty and degraded. There were 6 checkouts and absolutely NONE of them were open and only a huge queue for a customer service desk was the only option to… Read Full Review

This is a good reason why people should not buy furniture from places like Homebase. I would advise check out Baltic Gardens Ltd handmade furniture, very good quality and you get your bencehs or garden tables for rest of your life!

Ordered my furniture online 31st December. Had a call on 16th January to say my order was ready for delivery and offered a date of 26th February. After insisting on talking to a manager, was offered 29th January & accepted. Few days later received letter promising delivery on 22nd February. Manager then disappeared & after more insistence, was replaced by another one who promised delivery by 31st January. Then another letter arrived saying 11th February. Queried this with second manager who… Read Full Review

“Dreadful!”

Written on: 26/03/2014 by legendwood (1 review written)

I am utterly appalled and highly frustrated at the delivery service of Homebase. You would think that a large and successful company like Homebase would understand a customers delivery requirements. I purchased kitchen and bedroom furniture at the beginning of January. I even paid express delivery to ensure my goods were delivered within 2 to 3 weeks. most of the items eventually arrived on the 20th March (10 weeks later). To achieve this delivery time, it took more than 10 phone calls and many… Read Full Review

“Never buy from Homebase again”

Written on: 21/03/2014 by Ziegler1980 (1 review written)

I have bought a kitchen and 2 bathrooms from Homebase, spending nearly £30k and they have failed on everything. The whole project was mismanaged, delivery times missed, wrong products delivered and wrong quantities. They also sold me a discontinued line without informing me, so when the vanity unit doors arrived broken, there is no replacement and I had to strip down the tiling of the bathroom again. Furthermore, the customer service is impossible to talk to you, confused and without any… Read Full Review

“They sell faulty goods”

Written on: 17/02/2014

Thought at first that these lights looked gorgeous. Within weeks one of the bulbs had gone. Subsequently 2 more went within a month or two. Replaced the bulbs and the first bulb (which hasn't blown) will not work, my husband who started to train as an electrician years ago is convinced it is a loose connection as there is nothing wrong with the bulb. We had the light fitted by a qualified electrician. It now looks stupid with only three working lights. Less than 12 months old. After nearly 20… Read Full Review

“Broken Doors Supplied and will not replace!”

Written on: 13/02/2014 by gavm86 (2 reviews written)

I bought some French doors from homebase. We didn't have these installed straightaway as we needed the outside wall to be taken down, lintels put in and then rebuilt to leave a hole for the doors. So I didn't take them out of the packaging to inspect the doors thoroughly as whilst storing the doors thought best to leave them in the packaging to give some protection. When the builders opened the packaging they noticed a big crack on the slave door. I reported this to Homebase and they said I… Read Full Review
