“DONT USE A KETTLE OR COOK IN A HOMEBASE KITCHEN”

Written on: 20/08/2018 by 230Crawford (1 review written)

We have a Homebase kitchen but 14 out of 14 doors have failed everything else (trim ,drawers, units etc.) is all ok Homebase gives a 10 year guarantee first FIRA had to do a inspection this was carried out they deemed that fault/damage was due to excess steam and heat not happy I went to the Ombudsman they in turn agree with FIRA by the way one of the doors is 9ft away from the kettle we have an extractor over the cooker that vents to a outside wall a door in and a door out plus a window so… Read Full Review

“Higher Prices charged at Checkout than on Display Ticket”

Written on: 17/04/2018 by Wagner133 (1 review written)

I bought 2 items in Market Harborough store today and both where almost 20% higher when they went through the check out than the price tag displayed by the item. It took me nearly half an hour of waiting, explaining and showing a member of staff before they reluctantly sold me the item at the displayed price! I feel unhappy having to justify the display price when "The Computer" shows a different price. Really poor and I do not intend to go back there in a hurry! … Read Full Review

“HOMEBASE, STANWAY, COLCHESTER, ESSEX”

Written on: 28/03/2018 by AvoidHomebase (1 review written)

Untrained staff. Useless customer service. Essex trading standards are also investigating assisting with my case. This sham of a company cost me over £700 ad I have had to initiate legal action to force them to compensate me for THEIR mistake. I was always told not to shop in Homebase and I wish I had listened. NEVER, NEVER again. If you need anything from a hardware shop, then make sure you use a different company. The very fact they don't reply to any of their bad feedback on Trust… Read Full Review

“Excellent service and advice from a helpful member of...”

Written on: 26/11/2017 by JorgeMiddleton186 (1 review written)

I recently visited Homebase Portishead whilst staying with my brother. We were seeking advice around redoing fencing and trellis on a recently purchased property. The lady in the garden centre really couldn’t have been more helpful. Although l was probably going to spend well in excess of £500, l explained l didn’t live locally, the lady in question was familiar with the area l had recently moved to and was able to work out where my local store would be. She went to look on the computer to… Read Full Review

“Same old Homebase”

Written on: 20/10/2017 by Jolief117 (1 review written)

What happened to all the wonderful changes we were promised when Bunnings bought Homebase in January 2016? I popped into my nearby branch today for ther first time in many months, and nothing has changed. To be honest it looked like a jumble sale, with masses of clutter and unpriced stock in cardboard boxes in the aisles. I didn't find precisely what I was looking for, only things that were close to what I wanted, and it was anyone's guess how much some of them were. With that, I shrugged my… Read Full Review

“Customer service”

Written on: 15/10/2017 by Jaycee5 (1 review written)

Homebase stopped taking old £1 coins before they went out of service and were still legal tender. Homebase always does what is convenient for the store rather than the customer and this reminded me why I rarely go to Homebase. It was just pettiness. The cashier was embarrassed at having to tell me this and I have no complaint about her… Read Full Review

“I visited Homebase at Drakehouse, Sheffield last week....”

Written on: 29/09/2017 by Freeman397 (1 review written)

I visited Homebase at Drakehouse, Sheffield last week. I had a DIY gardening job to do and didnt have a clue what materials or equipment I would need to do the job. A gentleman assistant came to my rescue. I told him what I needed to do and he guided me in everything I needed to buy to do the job. He made suggestions I would never have thought of and described to me how to go about doing it. he pushed my trolley to the checkout for me and escorted me to my car and loaded everything into the car… Read Full Review

“not a user friendly store”

Written on: 12/09/2017 by 475McMahan (1 review written)

Poorly stocked. Couldn't find what I needed on line, but they did have the shelving struts, supports in store. I was pleased to find what I needed and a staff member did kindly write down the sizes and costs so I could check measurements and quantity needed. However several other items I looked were clearly not priced correctly e.g. floating shelves priced at £2 something each,storage containers, baskets etc. the one of the linen basket priced at £1.80 something etc.etc. when I got things I… Read Full Review

“Customer Satisfaction at it's Best”

Written on: 30/07/2017 by JaquiWells (1 review written)

I visited my local store this afternoon to purchase some water pipe wrap and came away with a 6 seater rattan patio set; an offer I could not resist. The assistant manager,was a star she was extremely polite and patient and went the extra mile to ensure I was happy with my purchase; nothing was too much trouble. I would also like to thank the men who delivered my table; in fact I would like to thank all the staff I met you made my day into a very pleasant experience… Read Full Review

“Weekend spoilt by visit to Homebase”

Written on: 28/07/2017 by Shifty1 (1 review written)

After many weeks of searching for some garden furniture I finally settled on a table and chairs set from Homebase. Thankfully I decided to collect the items myself otherwise this could have turned out to be far worse that it was. Unpacking the table was not a problem. The item was unmarked and simple to put together. However, the same could not be said of the chairs. On opening the box, (which was sealed with scotch tape)I noticed a chair was missing. A visit to the shop sorted this but, they… Read Full Review

“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 (23 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
