“Terrible customer service”

Written on: 29/01/2016 by Hooveria294 (1 review written)

Appalling customer service, I had a reservation categorically accepted via email and then the company rescinded saying that the item was not in stock. In the meantime I had refused another sale deal leaving me high and dry. My subsequent complaints, there were many, were parried with stock phrases that failed to answer my questions. The frustration continued, even at a higher level, when responses again paid no logical attention to my grievance. In the end I was promised a contact from a more… Read Full Review

“Terrible delivery twice in a row”

Written on: 13/01/2016 by EmilioKirkpatrick333 (1 review written)

Ordered twice from Homebase large furniture. Even though they try to make it convenient for you by providing several delivery slots and inform you 1h in advance, it never works. They say "delivery until 10:30" and it actually arrives way in the evening. Customer services keep you on hold for 15 min, "trying" to help. Couldn't wait for so long, just hung up. Had to take half day off work to accommodate the delivery slot and now forced to take full day due to the late delivery. Very very… Read Full Review

“Click & Forget”

Written on: 01/01/2016 by Zimmerman140 (1 review written)

Have tried twice to use their click & collect service. First order went through, they had stock, would get email telling me when ready. Then got phone call saying stock had all gone - try ordering again from another store. Ordered from another store, they had stock, would get email telling me when to collect. Never got any email or phone call. Such poor customer service. Will purchase elsewhere from now on… Read Full Review

“Worst Customer Service EVER!”

Written on: 23/12/2015 by zvPruitt89 (1 review written)

When you read customer service reviews online, you have to take them with a pinch of salt. You think, "The reviews are bad, but the price is fair and I'm sure it won't happen to me." It did happen to me. Homebase offer the very worst customer service I have ever encountered and I buy mostly everything online. They are liars, they are useless. As I write this review, I've been waiting on hold for 1hour and 2 minutes. Abysmal! It started in October when I ordered a bed. It arrived three weeks… Read Full Review

“Delivery Chaos”

Written on: 22/12/2015

Furniture bought in Edinburgh in November with assurances that this would be delivered at a date to suit me. First mistake! Telephoned to arrange delivery after Christmas but was told no dates were available. Try again. Aimed to choose delivery date in February but was told calendar was unavailable and phone back in two weeks. Did this and was informed that there was a delivery date after Christmas on the original date I had chosen. Great news! Received a call today (6 days before delivery)to… Read Full Review

“Worst Customer Service Ever!”

Written on: 13/12/2015 by Alisson193 (1 review written)

After spending over a £1000 on internal doors I contacted them to enquire what was happening as the 5 days of expected delivery had passed and I had heard nothing. I spoke to someone who said it was 5 working days and it would probably be Thursday. I pointed out that it did not say this and that I would have still expected to have heard something to arrange a delivery time slot and she was very disinterested when she said there was nothing they could do as the company was closed and I would… Read Full Review

“Bathroom”

Written on: 03/12/2015 by xcFallon373 (1 review written)

I got Homebase to supply and install a new bathroom last year. Contract was given to an external plumbing company. They came out and measured up and I told them what I wanted. Order was delivered on day it said it would. No problems. First day taking out my old tiles on the wall the contractor was hitting so hard it cracked the wall in my spare room. They re-plastered the cracked area but said I'd need to repaint it myself as they don't do that. I actually thought not too hard to touch up so… Read Full Review

“Kitchen fitting”

Written on: 11/11/2015

We have had a kitchen designed by Homebase Salisbury and it is currently being fitted. There has been a catalogue of errors by their designer, resulting in us having to project manage the kitchen ourselves, do lots of trips to Homebase, make new choices of several items already chosen, make more and more compromises and much more besides. We have a bathroom to fit next but will absolutely NOT be going to Homebase for it… Read Full Review

“Worse Mistake Ever!”

Written on: 05/11/2015 by ssubroy (1 review written)

We decided to go to Homebase Rochester to get a new bathroom for my mum. As we went to the store we waited around 30 minutes to be served and when staff member came he rushed us and was not very helpful. We decided on a bathroom which cost a lot of money and said to the staff member we will be in the next day to come and pay for it. To my shock the staff member called me in the morning to ask if we are coming, he then rang again to say he was going to lunch. I found this too uncomfortable. Ok… Read Full Review

“Faulty garden shredder - replaced - no questions asked !”

Written on: 05/10/2015 by ServerGoblin (5 reviews written)

I purchased a Qualcast Silent shredder from Homebase so that we could get rid of some overgrown conifers from the back garden. We picked it up from the store mid week, with a view to using it at the weekend. Of course the afternoon that we got it home we gave it a good try out and shredded one of the conifers that we had already felled. The Qualcast chomped through all but the thickest parts with relative ease, so we put it away ready for the weekend. On Saturday I got the shredder back… Read Full Review

“Poor customer service ”

Written on: 01/10/2015 by russell237 (1 review written)

After purchasing a shower screen from homebase we pulled up at home and removed from the car. The shower screen slid through the cardboard end and the measley bit of sellotape that had been obviously holding the box closed and smashed all over the path. Upon phoning homebase telling them that somebody had obviously opened the box and never sealed it properly, we were told that it is our responsibility to check the packaging is adequate and that now it has left the store it is not there… Read Full Review

“AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE”

Written on: 14/08/2015

Hygena luxury vinyl flooring - AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE. We purchased the vinyl flooring from Homebase (which was not cheap), it seemed good quality with a 15 year guarantee so felt that it offered protection against poor manufacturing quality. We hired a professional fitter as this was to go in our kitchen and dining area. The fitter laid it exactly to the instructions on the box. Now that we've had some sunshine the floor by the back door has rippled so much so that it burst the click joints… Read Full Review

“appalling”

Written on: 11/08/2015 by polinsteve (1 review written)

Customer service appalling. Cooker that should have been delivered on a specified date 14 days after ordering, didn't arrive. No contact to inform me. New date offered another 16 days. Approx 2 1/2 hours on the phone trying to resolve problem, mostly on hold. Return calls promised but not received. Deliberate or incompetent information regarding my consumer rights. Order now cancelled. I will never shop at Homebase again… Read Full Review

“Never again. ”

Written on: 03/08/2015 by Andi1424 (5 reviews written)

Ordered some garden stuff. Firstly I couldn't view my order on the website as it kept saying error so I emailed Homebase to let them know to which no one replied. I then got a phone call saying that one of my items was out of stock and they would refund me for this item. Half my delivery turned up on a Saturday with absolutely no notification so I rang to find out when the other half will arrive to which I was told Monday. Rang on Monday and got cut off twice. Finally got through to someone who… Read Full Review
