“Service and quality issues”

Written on: 11/08/2014 by Raquelo203 (1 review written)

I purchased a mirror from habitat, only to find it smashed when i got home. Returned it back to the kings road store, London. Staff replaced it and informed me that there four other mirrors in the same range which were also smashed. I was please that they told me this as I was reassured that it was not me who smashed it on the way home. However, it made me wonder if habitat is all that it is cracked up to be on the quality control front. 2nd purchase: tatsuma wardrobe. Ordered on line. Did not… Read Full Review

“Terrible for kitchens”

Written on: 13/06/2014

Avoid at any cost Owned by Home Retail Group (Argos / Homebase). I suspect the skillbase is therefore high volume / low value goods. It is not kitchens. I would avoid Habitat like the plague. We removed our kitchen on the basis they would start work on a Monday. They called on Friday afternoon to say there would be a 6.5 week delay. We have no running water, oven etc. Their proposed resolution is maybe we get a tap - they'll call us Monday to let us know. Bear in mind the cost of a kitchen… Read Full Review

“Poor customer service”

Written on: 10/06/2014

Awful customer service. The team have clearly not been trained in how to deal with customers and how to find resolutions (even though the customer service team are called the resolution team)... Please please only order from Habitat if you are happy to wait ages for your product, if you are happy to chase them when they promise to call and if you are happy to not have your issues resolved! Poor customer service skills… Read Full Review

“Delivered a damaged table!”

Written on: 01/06/2014 by Adysonh252 (1 review written)

I ordered the Suki foldable table online. They delivered on time but then when it arrived, i opened the box and it was damaged!! There was a massive crack on one side of the table. I was livid as I stayed in the whole day to wait for the delivery. When i rang customer services they were unapologetic and told me that i had to wait 2 weeks for someone to come pick up the damaged table, which meant i had this giant box and unusable table sitting in my living room. Not even an offer of… Read Full Review

“Misled by Habitat”

Written on: 10/04/2014 by Costello29 (1 review written)

Usual story - promised delivery which failed to arrive on time. Customer Services department a joke. No one prepared to take responsibility for the consequences of their inability to perform. Typical big company where the customer is taken for granted. Leave them well alone and buy elsewhere… Read Full Review

“Teapot purchased that leaks”

Written on: 20/03/2014

I bought a Lapsang teapot from Habitat. A few months later when I first used it, it turned out that it leaks heavily. I emailed Habitat and they told me to send a proof of purchase (so I sent credit card statement). And after all that I was told that I had to return it to a store. Transporting a glass teapot across London is not very easy. I found them very unhelpful and obviously a very bad product. I wasted money and time on this… Read Full Review

Unbelievably poor customer service! still no sign of sofa after 13 weeks. there was a new reason and a new lie every time we called the customer service. Tried to escalate our issue to a manager and the lady whose title is resolution manager did absolutely nothing to help or resolve our issue! They are simply not bothered about their customers and make it really clear!… Read Full Review

35 minutes ago Terrible, please go elsewhere for your furniture! I ordered a piece of furniture from habitat approx 1 month ago, and was informed there was a wait, fine i thought i'm not in a hurry but a month is quite a long time,however, they told me that it'd be delivered between 9-5, great, i thought. Then today i get a text to tell me that it'll be coming between3.30 and 7.30 (factoring in traffic in central London it could be as late as 8.30pm) So i called customer services and asked if… Read Full Review

“Beware ....They lied to me”

Written on: 16/12/2013

I ordered a sofa and pouf a number of weeks ago from Habitat on line. On following up on my order over a number of weeks I was lied to on a couple of occasions. Firstly I was told the pouf was in stock awaiting delivery of the sofa, I called a few days later and spoke to the same assistant to be told the sofa was in and not the pouf, I asked her to double check as she had told me the week before the pouf was in stock, she double checked and said it was definitely the sofa, I asked could this be… Read Full Review

“Habitat Tat ”

Written on: 19/11/2013 by SOPHIA.PEREZ (1 review written)

I purchased a £30,000 kitchen from Habitat. Six months later I want it ripped out. Appliances £5000 - worktop glass island £5000 rest of kitchen £20,000. Needless to say the customer services run like John Lewis in a an alternative universe. They will do everything to upset, prevaricate and delay. We are one at the verge of the court door over re fitting their mistake for £1000 which they refuse to pay for . " I understand that you since stated you have no running water, we would… Read Full Review

“Disorganised”

Written on: 24/10/2013

When you buy overpriced furniture you expect service to be up to par. They sent us a wrong colour cabinet then failed to organise the pick up swiftly, the item was in my spare room fully assembled in a huge box for up to a month and a half. No great apologies, I had to ring customer services to make sure they aligned delivery of the new one and a pick up of the wrong one on the same day as I could not take so many days off work to sort out their mistake. You would think for this… Read Full Review

“Terrible Customer Service”

Written on: 17/09/2013 by Charlotte66 (1 review written)

On 19th August 2013 I ordered 2 deck chair slings from Habitat. Payment was taken and I received notification that they would be delivered in 3 to 5 days.Two weeks later nothing had turned up and I rang to be told that they would be on their way - I have just rang today (4 weeks after placing order), eventually to be told that the items were out of stock and I would not be receiving them at all! All they could offer was a refund and a 20% discount off my next order - as if!!!!… Read Full Review

“Very poor service”

Written on: 23/08/2013

When you pay more than £2000 for a sofa you expect to receive it, if not within the time promised, at least assembled and properly delivered. I waited for 12 weeks to receive 2 large sofas i had ordered, although they had received them on the 2nd of august, they were only delivered on the 22nd of august, because they had a problem with the "system" that was not inputting my sofas for delivery!! after about 5 phone calls, and after i begged them to do it manually and spoke to oh so many… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/06/2013 by seaman21 (1 review written)

I was very pleased with my purchase of the white suki foldable table. That's about as positive as this review gets... 1. The guy at the cashier desk said they would call within 24 hours to arranged the delivery date - didn't call till a week later. 2. After giving up my Saturday morning to wait for the its arrival, they delivered a bright green chest of drawers instead of my white table. 3.

Habitat are now selling damaged/ ex showroom stock on E Bay. BE WARNED THE CUSTOMER SERVICE IS APPAULING. Bought a sofa bed & emailed seller( habitat) with available delivery dates. I gave specific dates as I get posted overseas for weeks on end. The first delivery date was when I stated I would be away. I wrote another email stating available dates again.AGAIN they rebooked when I would be away. I needed the sofa bed so I arranged a house sitter for delivery. When I tried to rebook the… Read Full Review

Again my sofa bed didn't arrive. I was told they forgot to send it from the warehouse. Rang customer service & given ref number & told I would be contacted. 5 days later no explanation from customer service!!
Be aware if you buy From EBay Habitat there is NO CUSTOMER SERVICE.
