“Rise & Recliner Chair”

Written on: 06/06/2016 by MilaLeslie443 (1 review written)

Bought this chair 3 years ago and paid a lot of money for it (especially when you consider there was no VAT on it. After three years you can feel the springs through the seat and the frame through the arms and the top surface of what was supposed to be high quality cream leather on one arm has worn showing black underneath. Although the manufacturer and supplier of this chair offers a five year guarantee if bought from them, Better Life only offer 2 years. They recommended a company who they… Read Full Review

“Buyer Beware”

Written on: 20/09/2014 by Sueandenda (1 review written)

Bought an expensive bed from this company. Was told in order to get the bed quickly I had to take the option without engineers who would arrange delivery (that option took 10 days) Might as well have taken that option, as there is no such thing as quick service and the bed was no cheaper. I also ordered a rail to go with the bed, which was no use, and they charge me £96.93 to send it back to them !!!! Please be very careful when dealing with this company, they promise you everything to get… Read Full Review

“Absolutely terrible - avoid at all costs”

Written on: 09/09/2014 by Peteru473 (1 review written)

Absolutely fantastic customer service - absolutely diabolical after sales service. Purchased a riser/recliner chair that has developed a fault - Engineer visit advised that the chair was mechanically fine, despite not being comfortable to sit in (pretty important for a chair!) Written complaint ignored - no action to be taken even though the goods are still within their 12 month warranty. Terrible attitude from the staff I have dealt with, likely to have to go to court now as I've been… Read Full Review

Once again I would like to offer my sincere apologies on behalf of the company for any inconvenience you have experienced in this matter and assure you of our best intentions at all times.

James15Sexton's Comment

Written on: 09/01/2015

This comment is amazingly non-commital and seems to say a lot without actually saying anything. Is a complaint only valid if a similar complaint has already been made? It's obviously in the manufacturer's interests to say they have never received another complaint of 'this nature' to give them a get-out.
Don't offer 'sincere' apologies.... offer a solution. Betterlifehealthcare's answer smacks of weasel words and certainly a lack of concern for a paying customer's complaint. Stinks, quite frankly..... could you explain exactly what you intend to do to resolve this person's problem? Or have you washed your hands of it?

Veeforce's Response to plh007's Review

Written on: 17/10/2014

How glad am I that I read yours and other reviews of this company. I started by e-mailing them asking a simple question to wit, what was the height of a particular scooter when the seat back was folded down. I ticked the box for e-mail as my preferred method of contact. I received an e-mail from them quite quickly which asked for a 'phone number so a Sales person could speak to me. I replied saying that I did not want to speak on the 'phone as I have a lung condition and talking robbed me of breath, If they couldn't answer a simple question via e-mail then so be it. Quickly they replied giving me the measurement requested. I replied saying that the info was favouirable for fitting the scooter in my car but I also said that I thought the Pic on the website was probably a library pic so could they e-mail a pic of the actual scooter? I have heard not a peep since. That, along with your review, told me all I needed to know abouit that particular Co. Luck escape in my view and I have now gone local.

“AVOID this thoroughly heartless, uncompassionate company!”

Written on: 14/08/2014 by Denise8989 (1 review written)

Two months ago, I bought a wheelchair and a 'wonder cushion' for my father from 'Betterlife'. Sadly, he died having used the wheelchair 3 times and before we had even had the chance to take the cushion out of its box. The cushion package is sealed and pristine, but the company will not consider a refund on it. It only cost £25, but they will not move on the matter. I am thoroughly disappointed at their cavalier attitude and having been told by their customer services manager how 'often' this… Read Full Review

Yesterday my mother who is house bound was confined to bed because her rise and recline chair failed, we order a new one from betterlife lloyds who promise on their website a 24 hour fast track service. I rang them on the morning of the delivery only to find out that a tracking service is not provided and I would just have to wait between the hours of 8am and 6pm for deliver. At 5pm with no sign of delivery i telephone them again, only to find out that their transport provider could not… Read Full Review

“Absolutely fantastic service”

Written on: 11/07/2013 by Daisymaisy (1 review written)

Yesterday I ordered two reclining chairs at 2pm. I had email confirmation almost straight away. The chairs were dispatched at 3pm from Penzance and when I checked the tracking, they were in Reading which is close to home at 4am this morning. They were delivered at 8:30 this morning. That's 18 hours roughly!! Absolutely outstanding customer service. I really can't praise Betterlife highly enough. The chairs are good qaulity and just what I need to help me sit more comfortably due to a back… Read Full Review

“avoid like the plague”

Written on: 04/06/2013

I was very disappointed with better life health care. I am terminally ill and registered disabled. I purchased a bed from them after saving for a whole year from my disability benefit and after just one year and two months the memory foam mattress had completely sunk in the middle. When I complained they said there was nothing I could do about it as the warranty they gave me was only for one year, which they've now changed to a FIVE year warranty for their new products. They were not… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/06/2013

I phoned 5-6 times to complain to better life healthcare and they delay your case till your warranty runs out. They pretend to be nice on the phone but they do nothing about it they just say how really sorry they are in a really fake way and take no action. I had sleepless nights I was so fuming.

Bought a piece of clothing for healthcare use from this online shop. I ordered on Thursday morning and got it delivered 10:30am on Friday. Before the parcel arrived, I also got emails notifying me about the progress of shipping and approximate time of arrival. Really speedy and reliable delivery!

“Not Good...”

Written on: 16/02/2013 by NorthW (1 review written)

I ordered a medical item that, due to an accident injury, was needed asap. I chose Better Life Health Care because they offered 'next day delivery'. Stayed in all day. The item wasn't delivered. I rang and asked to cancel the order and get a refund because, due to their non delivery on the promised day, we needed to buy the item elsewhere. I was told I could have my 24hr delivery postage refunded (wasn't at that point) but I couldn't cancel the order; Instead I would have to be at home to… Read Full Review

I recently ordered a talking watch from Betterlife and not only was it delivered the following day but also within a one hour time slot that the informed me of. Unfortunately the product was faulty but one phone call and a replacement was arranged for the next day delivery, again with a specific one hour time slot. Low and behold the replacement was faulty so another phone call wherewith a replacement product was arranged with, you've guessed it, next day delivery within a specific hour. This… Read Full Review

“Betterlife portable scooter”

Written on: 19/01/2013

Purchased a portable scooter from this company 2 months ago and had a nightmare trying to receive it. They ignored my phone calls repeatedly and only when I threatened Trading Standards did they reply and eventually sorted delivery. It worked for the first day and has never worked since. Completely useless and would urge everyone to avoid this company like the plague… Read Full Review
