“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

“woolworths style customer service”

Written on: 19/07/2015 by lcJenkins133 (1 review written)

needed to purchase a large amount of Gardening equipment for a charity project. First i called the nearest branch which was Leyton, the phone line was engaged constantly so decided to go there. On arriving the Homebase had closed down, no info on the website or a simple recorded message would have saved the hassle. So went to the next branch Haringey, they had about 5 of the 40 items in stock, so onwards to the next branch where they had about a third of the list but also wanted £41 to… Read Full Review

“Appalling 'service' - do not use”

Written on: 11/07/2015 by Clem1 (1 review written)

We ordered new kitchen from Homebase. The hob they supplied is faulty and a month later we still do not have a refund or replacement. I have called customer services numerous times. Every time I call the 'Director's office' they give me an excuse as to why they can't speak to me at that time and tell me I'll be called back the same day, yet no call back is ever received. The product is faulty, it doesn't work, and they are doing all they can to avoid refunding it. In addition: - The… Read Full Review

“Most appalling customer service I have ever experienced”

Written on: 27/05/2015 by Moses150 (1 review written)

On finding the Farrow and Ball paint I had chosen unavailable in store I ordered online. During the process, it was not possible to select a delivery date although it said that it would be within 3 days. Before confirming the order I rang customer services and was told that it might be because it was a bank holiday but that Homebase would be in touch once the order was processed to agree a delivery date and a time slot of either 8-12, 12-4 or 4-8 and so I confirmed the order. By the next day… Read Full Review

“Harvester Oak Laminate Homebase”

Written on: 28/04/2015 by Firefly9 (1 review written)

Do not buy any Homebase laminate...within 3-4 months it had developed over 15 faults and it is now being being removed. Bits came off and small holes appeared despite fact it purported to have a 15 year warranty. FIRA advised it was manufacturer's error and that Homebase should replace it and pay for taking up and installation of new floor. Head office have not complied with this. In fact I have ended up having to remove the floor myself… Read Full Review

“DO NOT USE !!!! STAY AWAY !!!”

Written on: 27/04/2015

I recently bought a Hygena Fitted Bedroom from Homebase. After 5 months I still have not got my entire order. I must have called them at least 30 times. I've had deliveries that I have had to send back because things were so badly damaged, there have been delays with manufacturer. My agreed delivery date (the one that is guaranteed but not ?!??!) was over 2 months ago. Customer service is appalling. They cannot call you back when they agree they cannot commit to delivery dates. They have a… Read Full Review

“Home base, excellent staff help from Basingstoke”

Written on: 26/04/2015 by Dsanger (1 review written)

On two occasions in the last two months I have been pleased to receive some excellent service from the staff at Basingstoke. One of the guys was very helpful when I purchased timber and the person I dealt with in the garden section was very helpful when I was looking to buy a large heavy planter. On both occasions the staff offered help and I even got a couple of pounds off on item because it was marked. In my oppinion Homebase have excelled here because it is the staff that make the shopping… Read Full Review

“They found my husband's wallet”

Written on: 21/04/2015 by GreenhillCooke (1 review written)

I just wanted to thank your Evesham store and the person I dealt with in particular. My husband visited yesterday and clearly lost his wallet - there was an almighty panic this morning while we searched high and low for it. When I called and spoke to a lady and she was excellent and I was so delighted that they had found the wallet and put safe. So often nowadays we do not say thank you enough - but this was amazing and I just wanted to say thank you so very much to the person I dealt with -… Read Full Review

“Still waiting for full delivery - over 3 months later!”

Written on: 20/04/2015

Absolutely appalling service from homebase. We were due to have a table and 6 chairs delivered in January. We waited in the entire day only do discover that they would not be delivered that date - no one contacted us to let us know this and did not seem to be sorry for the inconvenience caused. We finally managed to arrange another date several weeks later. On this occasion, the table and 4 correct chairs were delivered but we discovered after they had gone that the two others were incorrect… Read Full Review
