it's quite funny when an ex stealing employee who got arrested for this puts on an utter load of rubbish, funny thing is ever since he has gone , our company has never run so well , and as for our fitting teams , we do hundreds and hundreds of jobs a year , very rarely there may be an occasional mishap like with any business but its how we deal with that which sets us apart , we don't ask all our satisfied customers to do reviews , but if we did , we would have 5 stars , its only the odd customer who puts reviews on sites like this because they feel they have been let down but there are 2 sides to every story ,

Right let's get things straight for a start I've never
Been an employee of yours but however I know the
Person in question he did not get arrested at all
He went to the police station of his own accord
And was acquited of any wrong doing I'm am an old
Customer of yours and would never use your services again
As your ex employee does all my work now just leave h alone
He has a new job as of March and just wants to get on with his life ok
Thank you

O.K you want to get things straight , then fine, stop acting like an ex customer , your boyfriend had no choice but to hand himself in, he has fleeced my company of thousands that i have spent years building up because i have always trusted people that worked for me, Once more i don't know where you get off putting on here that carpets we stock are rejects , cos they come straight from the manufacturers , stop putting such ridiculus comments on sites like this just because your boyfriend lost his job , Im sure who ever he is starting work for in march would love a reference from me ..

“Last choice carpets”

Written on: 28/04/2012

We order a lounge carpet and lino for three other rooms,paid in full,over four weeks before arranging for the goods to be delivered and fitted. Empty rooms,cleaned and arranged for the new sofa to be delivered the following day. Half the carpet fitted, still waiting for the Lino to be complete in one room and sealed in the other rooms. No information from the staff as to when they are coming back. Called into the shop, manager was rude and then requested we come back later for a refunded and… Read Full Review

Well i must say as the owner of our business , i have never heard of a carpet being just half fitted before , don't quite know why any fitter would do that , i would be interested please to know who you are , so i could look into this if that was the case, just in case your some sort of rival firm or fitter trying to hamper our reputation on sites like this by putting false allegatations , thankyou

“Fantastic value for money , much cheaper than Carpet right”

Written on: 27/10/2011

i have to say i was 100% satisfied with my lounge, hall , stairs and landing carpet that i just had fitted , i had a quote from carpet right first and i have to say i didn't like his pushy attitude to get a sale,as well as the price he quoted me, then i went to 1st choice carpets and i have to say the salesman that dealt with me was brilliant and wasn't pushy at all, and the price i got was so much cheaper than carpet right which i found funny as carpet right was suppose to have 60% off, and… Read Full Review

“CARPETS WERE AMAZING FOR THE PRICE”

Written on: 07/07/2011 by manurich (1 review written)

i was a bit reluctant to go with 1st choice carpets after reading a few of these review's, however after talking to the director who works at the shop, he did say that unfortunatly they did have some bad fitting team's that they got in, but after hearing about these complaint's, they no longer work for the company, and he did ensure me that they are now happy with the fitting team's they have, and i have to say we had no problem's with them whatsoever, very polite, helpful, and did an excellent… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/12/2010

I had carpet and underlay fitted today, on time, excellent service very curtious carpet fitter it looks great. The whole experiance has been straight forward from visiting the well stocked store, discussing our choice with a very knowledgeable manager, agreeing a delivery and fitting date. I will be purchasing carpets in the new year and will definately be using this company again. Well done and thank you.

“1st CHOICE CARPETS IN DEVIZES - don't purchase...”

Written on: 20/10/2010

1st CHOICE CARPETS IN DEVIZES - don't purchase anything from them or have them to fit your underlay and carpets. they damaged the wallpaper in my hallway in several places bringing the carpet and underlay in. I have had to fill in the dents with polyfiller and then repaint over them. Luckily I had some paint left, but I could have done without the trouble of having to do it all. the fitters were totally inexperienced and had obviously not had any training in fitting carpets. They were… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/10/2010

I have had many carpets fitted over the years and never had such a poor service as I've had from this carpet company. They kept their outside boots on whilst trying to fit the carpet and stood on the new clean carpet as they were trying to fit it. They had several problems in trying to fit the carpet which, to any other knowledgable carpet fitter would not have been a problem at all. I will not recommend this company to anyone - you've been warned! Don't buy anything from 1st Choice… Read Full Review

I don't know anywere else that does that.
Would recommend them to eveyone I know… Read Full Review

DO NOT BUY FROM 1ST CHOICE CARPETS. Bunch of cowboys: tried fitting my carpet, said my concrete floor was too hard for them to get the grippers in. Parts of carpet uneven, as if underlay rucked up, cut top of carpet with stanley knife when trying to cut out cardboard( they had placed the cardboard on top of the carpet!) Three fitters (supposedly) turned up age about 18yrs, messed about when trying to lay carpet. Did not lay it all as they damaged it & the backing. they quickly rolled up… Read Full Review

Of course concrete can be to hard so u stick gripper and marking backing wont hurt unless it goes right through and u can mark the top of the carpet with a knive or a finger nail its just the pile it will rub out and they probably ran off quick be for they lost there temper because you were moaning about nothing and yes im experienced 18years in the trade and no i dont work there i have my own place to run please dont come to me

Written on: 11/09/2010 by john000000 (1 review written)

I purchased a carpet from 1st choice carpets in Devizes costing £700. Three carpet fitters attempted to fit the carpet with spray glue in some places instead of using grippers: it's Hessian backing. Carpet dipped down and was uneven at the fireplace, they cut some cardboard on top new carpet & cut in the pile of the new carpet in several parts with a Stanley knife. When we looked at the hessian backing there was bald patches, I said I wanted a replacement or my money back: Mike Eddy refused to… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/09/2010 by Hiscocks (1 review written)

I had my hallway and kitchen fitted with vinyl and my stairs and landing fitted with carpet (inc underlay). Two fitters came and did a fantastic job! (Gripper rods were used on the carpet.) The quality of carpet and vinyl supplied was as ordered and great value for money (cheaper than Carpet Right & Carpet Barn). The craftsmanship and accuracy of the fitters was fantastic. Fitting was booked in quickly as i was desperate - which was great. I would highly recommend to anyone and I would… Read Full Review
