“Uninviting”

Written on: 20/07/2017 by lnWaddell146 (1 review written)

What a mess. You walk in to this store to be faced with rows of paint. There is absolutely no effort made to make you want to browse and buy; it's like a jumble sale. No attractive displays. I couldn't locate the item I was looking for and a very friendly member of staff walked me to the right section. I feel very sorry for staff in this store. I visit this store quite often and it has a nice variety of home and garden products. It just needs someone with a bit of flair to work some magic on… Read Full Review

“Worst homebase ever”

Written on: 05/07/2017 by Bria86 (1 review written)

Been to many homebase shops and never seen one as bad as the acton shop. Half of the staff are hiding from doing any work. If you have a lot of time to burn waiting for service then try it for yourselves. What a mess. No other homebase comes close to being as bad as this one… Read Full Review

“Spoiling the Ship for a Hap'orth of Tar”

Written on: 29/05/2017 by Duke_Nukem (20 reviews written)

Bought a brass cabin hook, said "brass" on the pack. The hook and eye were brass, but the four included wood screws were steel flashed with brass. It must have saved them all of 1 pence, but if you want something that will not corrode, like on a boat, that's no good. Would not be so bad if real brass screws were easy to find these days. I'd prefer they did *not* include screws with this sort of thing anyway and for screws to be available separately so *you*, not they, can choose what is… Read Full Review

“Brilliant service”

Written on: 23/04/2017 by Oldershopper (1 review written)

This is my local store and I go there frequently. Since being taken over by Bunnies the range of products has increased massively and the prices have dropped. What has not changed is the friendliness and the helpfulness of the staff, in particular the older ladies on the check out. These ladies are always cheerful and friendly and their product knowledge is amazing. I can't understand why it says here that you can't name them. They also have a really good garden dept and a knowledgeable older… Read Full Review

First I bought a bulb which had a price tag of £3.32 below it but on returning home I found I was charged £9.99!I complained on line and was that day phoned by the manager of Formby store who was very helpful and apologetic. So they very kindly refunded my money.Also they tried to find certain led bulbswhich the computer page said my 2 nearer stores had in stock. The Formby staff helped over and above by visiting the other store to try to obtain for me the bulbs but none their either.So the… Read Full Review

“Homebase Kitchen Nightmare”

Written on: 28/08/2016 by Sydneef111 (1 review written)

The kitchen fitting industry-a virus that governs itself and relies on what it can get away with. Two years on from the start date of a Homebase nightmare we feel able to write a review of our experience for a job that should have taken 2 to 3 weeks and went on for over a year. We were drip fed one problem after another which left our nerves in tatters. We paid thousands of pounds extra for fitters and a promised project manager. For once in our lives we wanted someone else to do the work… Read Full Review

“Disgusting customer service, absolutely appalling”

Written on: 04/08/2016 by devil_tez (5 reviews written)

I placed an order back in May, I waited and waited with no correspondence, I finally tracked them down and they informed me some of the items were out of stock but agreed to deliver what was in stock and the rest would be delivered in a few weeks time. I got some of my items including my dining table without the chairs which I was told were to follow in a few weeks. A couple of months later I am chasing them again as I still haven't heard anything from them only to be told the rest of my order… Read Full Review

“Appalling product quality and customer service”

Written on: 31/07/2016 by Alexzandern435 (1 review written)

I purchased a wooden garden table and six chairs from Homebase fourteen months ago at a cost of £400 (original price £500 but on offer when I bought it). Due to a house move the table was stored in a brick built garage for eight of the fourteen months so has only been outside and in use for six months. I noticed that three of the four table corners had quite significant splits and also four of the six chairs. Homebase arranged for an independent technician to look at the furniture and I… Read Full Review

“Spring sale fiasco”

Written on: 01/06/2016 by oaAbernathy443 (1 review written)

In May I purchased a large sofa and cuddle chair from the spring sale. My order was confirmed, the balance taken from account and a delivery date confirmed. Exactly three weeks later the order was cancelled...the reason..'out of stock due to high demand'. Ok it was on sale so that's feesable, except for the following facts:- 1/ beside every sofa and chair description in brackets it says (MADE to order) 2/ the cuddle chair is still for sale on the website but the price is 3 xs the amount I… Read Full Review

“Reserve & collect is a joke”

Written on: 16/05/2016 by CHATZ (3 reviews written)

Customers are fed up of being let down by Homebase. They can't even be bothered to contact you or email it's out of stock. Homebase should not be allowed to call the system "RESERVE & COLLECT" as they can't guarantee ordered goods Homebase state it's a live system! Far from it… Read Full Review

“NO SUPPORT FOR OWN BRAND ITEMS”

Written on: 08/05/2016 by Hatch255 (1 review written)

My Homebase shower broke just after its 1yr warranty expired. Maybe I was unlucky? However, Homebase are unwilling help me source a spare (thermostat) that I am willing TO BUY. There is no support and once they ascertained my warranty had expired I can get no response from them. They literally don't care. I cannot think of any other piece of domestic equipment that would not be supported by spare parts (for sale); e.g., Hoover/Dyson, Oven, Washing Machine. So basically if your Homebase… Read Full Review

“terrible service”

Written on: 11/03/2016 by troydun (1 review written)

To whom it may concern I ordered my kitchen with you and paid for it in full in your store on the Naas road in Dublin. After paying for my kitchen in full I was told it could take 4-6 weeks to arrive. I got call from DHL saying that my delivery would arrive on the 5th of February, with that I had my fitter, plumber and electrician lined up to start work on the 8th and 10th etc. We also moved into our home thinking living without a kitchen for a week would be fine...we could get by with… Read Full Review
