“Navy bean bag with white stars”

Written on: 29/05/2015 by MalloryLove90 (1 review written)

Purchased the navy bean bag with white stars for my son's new bedroom, the navy dye transferred onto his brand new Laura Ashley white bed, so it is now ruined, also transferred onto the skirting. GLTC offered a refund for the product but were not interested in the damage it had caused. Ridiculous that they should sell an item for a child's bedroom that basically ruins everything it comes into contact with… Read Full Review

“Bad Quality Large Eden Playtable”

Written on: 17/07/2014 by sigilk (1 review written)

I purchased a number of items from GLTC and was very happy with delivery of products and the apparent quality of products. However, one of the products that I purchased was the large eden playtable. It looked lovely when assembled (took a handyman about 2hours to put together) and the kids were very happy with it. But unfortunately the chalk side of the table left black marks over the white drawers and the sides of the table. Very quickly (within an hour) the table looked grubby and dirty and… Read Full Review

“If I could give a minus star I would!”

Written on: 10/07/2014 by ulDugan51 (1 review written)

Utterly terrible service. I agree with the majority of comments on here, please keep clear of this company! Yes the goods look nice but the service is appalling, my order never arrived three days running, ended up giving up and getting a full refund. I wish I had used amazon from the start. The customer services lie and just tell you what you want to hear, I would rather be told the truth, if you can't get it to me on a certain day then don't promise to. Wasted a lot of time on phone calls and… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/05/2011

I bought a tricycle from GLTC in February and the parent handle broke after a couple of uses. I really couldn't be bothered complaining at the time and just left it however a screw came loose and went missing whilst my child was using it. I phoned them on Sunday morning and they had delivered a new one by Tuesday morning, they have told me to dismantle the old one in my own time and let them know and they'll collect it. I didn't have to prove anything and the advisor was more than helpful and… Read Full Review

BOUGHT THE SAND PIT PIRATE SHIP, THE WOOD EASILY BROKE WHEN PUTTING TOGETHER AND IS WARPED, EVEN PIECES THAT ARE MEANT TO BE FUSED TOGETHER HAVE FALLEN APART. CONTACTED THEIR NON EXISTENT CUSTOMER SERVICES AND I HAVE TO PROVE THE DEFECT BEFORE THEY WILL TAKE ACTION.

Written on: 17/02/2011

Whilst I am pleased with the quality of the items that I've received i'm not happy with the appalling distribution system this companys appears to have. I have been waiting for a month now for my complete order to appear and I am. quite frankly, tired of chasing them. Although I am happy with the service I've received from the sales team GLTC has failed on every other level. I wouldn't go anywhere near them unless you like the idea of calling them daily or having incomplete furniture orders… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/12/2010

Singluar worst retail experience in my 8 years of living in the UK. Order placed in May, not completely fulfilled until December - when they sent two of the missing part by mistake. Had to call 6 or 7 times to get the payment processed - something went wrong on their end each time and I was told a manager would call me back... As a special bonus, you get to listen to 20 minutes of 'Postman Pat' and 'Winnie the Pooh' each time you call and are put on hold. Avoid like the plague. (I only… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/11/2010

I wish we had followed our gut with GLTC...I had my reservations about Great Little Trading Co from the beginning. Their website wouldn't let us purchase at the sale price. Customer service wouldn't help, didn't seem to care. Sent us the wrong mattresses for our bunk beds. Won't call us back when they promise to. Like others on here, we have a list of names from the customer service, but not one of them bothers to follow up when they say they will, nor call us back. We now have a bunk bed with… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/09/2010

Very interesting to read so many poor reviews about this company. I'm thankful that my order was very small and only for £35 but even so.....

Dreadful service from the start. When I placed the order online the payment section froze. I rang customer service to check it had gone through - they said it hadn't. Frustrated with the website and slightly indifferent sales staff I then found another company which did the same thing I wanted (personalised pens and pencil cases for the new school… Read Full Review

I could not agree more with the terrible reviews of GLTC - just wish I had looked on this site before I ordered from them!
I spent £425 on the Anchorage bunk beds and they only delivered one of the underbed storage drawers. This was in April. I have called them so many times and all they can say is they don't know when they will deliver they other one. I am so angry about having paid for a product that I now seem unlikely to ever receive.

Written on: 28/05/2010

I have had a very bad experience with customer services this week.

I placed an order on Tuesday for some drawers for toy storage. When I ordered, I wanted a mixture of colours of drawers, but particularly wanted the green spot drawer. It was showing as out of stock online, so I phoned customer services and was advised that they were out of stock and that they may not be back in stock for a very long time. I needed 6 drawers to fit into a new shelving unit that I am having built. As I was… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/03/2010

Oh dear, having read the reviews below I feel my disappointing experience of their customer service is sadly typical. I have a list of 9 different names of their customer service staff who have all let me down and infuriated me by either lying about the status of my order or not calling back when promising to. I ordered a Goldilocks sofa and beanbag over 5 weeks ago, pretty simple you'd think. Since then: wrong sofa, 2 wrong bean bags, wrong address...nobody cares, they can't even apologise… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/02/2010 by Tom26 (1 review written)

I have set up my reviewcentre account purely on the basis of my experiences with this atrocious company. Do yourself a favour and do not use. We ordered my son's first ever bed (and bedside cabinet) from them before the New Year, causing him much excitement.

They delivered the wrong bed on the 18th Jan. The correct bed arrived 1st Feb but with a broken clip meaning we cannot assemble and the pieces are sitting in our hallway. We have had to call five times since then on a premium rate line… Read Full Review
