We had our Moben kitchen fitted over ten years ago and is still going strong. I have no complaints, the units and doors are still as good as new. The dishwasher and amazing range cooker are still In full working order. If more satisfied customers wrote good reviews I'm sure there would be more good than bad but unfortunately we only complain so I thought I would write about our wonderful experience with moben and would certainly use them again.

My kitchen was fitted 6 years ago and I was and still am very pleased with the service I received. The units are exactly what I wanted, and everything is still beautiful, except the work surfaces. 50 per cent of them are becoming sticky (not my lack of cleaning them). It appears to be a resin like substance seeping through them, which will not wipe off with either hot soapy water or general kitchen cleaners. As my kitchen is well with the warranty period I should be able to claim under the... (read more)

I used these guys in my old house and they were awful. There were a number of things wrong with the fitting of the kitchen that were dealt with in the most cak-handed way. It took 3 months to finally finish everything after they promised it would be done in 5 days! The customer service was poor and there seemed to be no communication between their departments. One of the worst companies I've ever dealt with. (read more)

After the shock of Moben going under I could kick myself for paying the deposit by cheque. I have been told that there is little or no chance of any recompense or refund. My luck came good when my friend told me about other companies that were trying to help Moben clients in my position. I went with a very good company that guarantees deposits and standards through there Trustmark membership and reputation. This has made us feel a whole lot better. Anyone in my position should use a... (read more)

The salesperson that came to my house to quote for a new kitchen made the assumption that I was some stupid housewife. He was patronising and 'acted' his way through a ridiculous sales patter. He was in my house for almost 2 hrs when he announced he was going outside for a 'fag break'. I explained that I needed to pick up my daughter from nursery and he told me not to worry, he'd make the fag a quick one. When he was done he went to the bathroom and came out with his flies undone. He... (read more)

The 50% off is a gimick. The price that you get from the designer still has 20% to bargain with. Choose a Kitchen with Moben, you will get the same one from Kitchens Direct for less money...they are the same company, just operate differntly. (read more)

I signed up for a Moben kitchen on 3/4/11 and paid a deposit of £2,660 without looking at any reviews, when I did, I was really worried by the bad reviews so I cancelled 5 days later by email and the cancellation slip. I recieved a cheque for the full amount on 26/4/11. I was really surprised as I thought I was going to have a battle to get my money back.

Currently having £12k kitchen fitted by Moben ( supposedly half price)-( cooker and fridge freezer not included in offer) - noticed that the finished plans for my kitchen drawn up and printed out on paper have not live up to my expectations during installation. I have found that my design has faults in it whereby my corner units are hidden in places by my domestic appliances which has ended up allowing me poor access to them wasting so much valuable needed space. i have so put my full trust...

If there was a choice "-5 stars" would be a right description for their service, which is not existent.

Don't even consider them. You have no idea how long it may take and they have your money. Apparently the compensation is £35 per month they are late in delivering so they have no incentive at all. There is no way to complain except in writing which is ignored. There's no way of speaking to your co-ordinator because they just don't call back. Manager/supervisor calls have to be requested and then they don't call either. Staff are so frequently going through this that they just don't... (read more)

I have also had a very poor experience with Moben Kitchens. The designers was great and so was the surveyor on the surface, but they only told half the story of what the fitting entails.
The job overran and even with a project coordinator I ended up chasing them and speaking to builders to finish the job.
Though the walls were left in a worse state than before, they relinquish all responsibility and say cost is on the customer, though their fitters removed the cupboards.

Moben Kitchen Design - Don't do it.
I have tried to cut this short but our issues deserve a proper airing .
We were promised that our kitchen would be completed in 5 days plus another 2 for tiling. It took 17 weeks !!
The so called designer (or should this be salesman?) ignored our requirements and designed what he wanted. We needed a 900mm wide breakfast bar to accommodate 4 people. He left us with a 620mm top that was a tight squeeze for two!! We complained but Moben didn't want to... (read more)

Were it not for the cooperation and quality of Paul, the fitter, then we would have cancelled the order.
Moben omitted items and instructions to the fitter - and importantly the cooker splashback which we had to chase - too late for the fitter to fit, and in any case it was the wrong size!

MOBEN are pushy and totally unscrupulous retailers. I cannot believe the nonsense they come out with. Don't believe a thing they tell you. The only reason they want you to sign there and then, is because they want the SALE (your money).

They have an enormous turn over of staff because the salesman are on a 'COMMISSION ONLY' self employed basis. They don't care about... (read more)

A big thank you for all your reviews.....We visited a Moben showroom today. Yes we were drawn in by the free dishwasher, the 50% off sale plus a further £1000 if we put a deposit down this weekend. We did ask if there was a price list that came with the brochure but were told that the "designer" would have all those figures.
