I purchased a whole leather living room set from ashley home store in frisco on february 19, 2007. I also...
Please be aware of Ashley Furniture and their business practices. I canceled my order in what I thought to be time where the furniture in no way could have been manufactured - though they said it was and was on its way though they offered no proof of that. So anyways - I said yes to the store credit whereas they wanted it to be for the whole purchase amount - including warranty, delivery and sales tax. After a call into a NYS agency - merchandise credit is on merchandise and not on services or sales tax (esp because it was never "collected"). So, we agreed to a true merchandise credit. Well, after much-to-do between Ashley and the credit card agency used for the gazzilion months of no interest, it all was messed up - so Ashley said "screw her" and did the restocking fee of 20%. I am not sure what rocket scientist did the math but where they got their 20% from I can't figure it out because no matter what way I do it, my math and their does not equal. So after so more investigation - again the 20% is only on merchandise. A call to the store confirms that 20% restocking is on merchandise only and not on warranties, delivery, or sales tax. So... if you are one of those who opt for the restock fee (because like me I don't EVER want to do business with this company again!) - check the math. Fight back - they are trying to get more money out of you. File your BBB complaint - I am astonished as to how many of these I have read online and yet look at the BBB website and find only a handful of complaints filed against this company. For one, I would like to see this business out of NY as they have shady business practices, poor workmanship, and even poorer "customer service".
We bought a kitchen desk (secretary & hutch) on Sept 10, 2007 at the Winston-Salem store and were told it would arrive in three weeks. Several calls and four delivery dates later and we finally received the item on December 29, 2007. They changed the delivery time three times the day of delivery and took from another customer's order to make ours whole because part of it was missing or damaged. I suspect they had done this with our order and had filled other customer's orders for Christmas with ours, hence the reason for the delays. When the item finally arrived, we asked the delivery folks if it didn't fasten together for safety sake and they said definitely NO. When they had left, we found the assembly instructions in a drawer with four screws but the brackets to attach the desk to the hutch were missing. We called the delivery driver back and they insisted that these brackets didn't exist. Even the store manager at the store made the same claim. I offered to send him a copy of the instructions and diagram send with the furniture showing the missing clamps for the back of the piece. It will probably be months before we ever see these missing parts if we ever get them! Do not buy from this company! If it looks too good to be true, it probably is!
I had the misfortune of purchasing a leather reclining sofa and chair from Ashley about 2 months ago. Of...
Sofa and love seat were delivered and placed in room immediately by delivery people, and everything looked fine. My wife while cleaning a vent noticed that there was damage on the back corner of the leather sofa. The damage could not be seen from the front or side. The delivery people had to see the torn area. Ashley would not have any responsibility for the damage and said it was not their problem. I had the 5 year protection plan but they said since it was a delivery problem it was not covered under that plan. Shop at a reputable furniture store like Haverty's to avoid this problem.
I was never informed that ashley furniture store had a no return/refund policy. The sale rep should inform the customers about the return/refund policy. I can remember asking about the merchandise and the return policy. I was informed by my sales rep that if I have a problem to just contact him and he will see that the problem will be corrected. Will you know that a lie. My sales rep have yet to return any of my phone call. Everything about ashley furniture store and its employee works on false lies.
I filled this report today 12/11/07 with the better business bureau.
Problem/delivery date: 12/11/07 @ 4:50 p. M. Among many before today's date. Purchase date: 11/05/2007, model #: d396-15, payment amount, payment amount $744.76, bankcard full payment. I purchased a dinning room set on the date listed above. This complaint has nothing to do with the sale rep. My complaint is with delivery and customer service. I had to have them to change out two table top and the third one that was delivered today is also damaged. The glass top is coming from the manufacture damaged. On today I informed the delivery drivers that the glass top was damaged and I ask them to take it back and they said they will have to leave the table top with me since the damage is a manufacture problem and that I had to follow the instructions on the bottom of the invoice and that he (One of the drivers, the younger one) were going to contact customer service to inform them of the damaged table top.in making sure that the problem was report within 24 hours. I contacted customer service myself and I was informed that since I accepted the table top into my home, that they will have to send out a service rep to inspect the problem. The sad part of the problem is that the drivers refused to take the table back. I listed on the invoice myself that the glass was damaged!!
My problem is the inconvenience that is upon me. I stood home today (12/11/07) waiting on delivery, now they are telling me that they need to send a service rep out to inspect the problem on tuesday, 12/18/07 (No time provided to me at this time, I have to wait until monday, 12/17/07 to get a time on when he can come out). Now I have to take off from work on tuesday for the service rep. After the service rep come out and see that the problem can not be fixed. I will have to take off when they replace the table top that is currently sitting in my home. My problem is the time i'm missing from work without pay. I feel they should have just taken the table top back, inspect it and order another one.
Please allow me to inform you that the merchandise is not being inspected before it leaves ashley's furniture store warehouse. Each time they've brought the table top to my home, the box was cut open right in front of me.
Upon speaking with marsha in customer service on 12/11/07 at 4:53 p. M. Right after the delivery drivers left my home. She refused to re-order another table top and strongly stated that a service rep need to come to my home. I asked about returning the entire merchandise back. Ms. Marsha informed me that I was stuck with the merchandise and that they were no return policy once the merchandise enter my home. It is well aware that I have been have problems with the each glass top that has enter my home. The first problem was a piece of inbedded inside the glass and the second glass top was glue inbedded inside the glass and with the third glass top that is sitting in my home also has glue inbedded inside the glass. I requested to speak with a manager, she sent the call to amy torres voicemail at 5:05 p. M. I left a message with ms. Torres and yes, she returned my call at 6:05 p. M. She also stated that in order for them to correct the problem that service rep needs to come out. I asked/requested that they send the delivery drivers back out to get the table since they refused to take it back and they can have the service rep to inspect the table top at the warehouse. Again, I am held responsible for them (Delivery drivers) not taking it back. She stated no that the service rep need to come to my house.
After the service rep finds that the problem can not be corrected that he will inform them to re-order me another table top.
Bottom line is that I would like to have a full refund back and not deal with ashley furniture store anymore. Its like they take your money and you (As the customer) are not a value customer anymore. You become # to them. Excuse my french. Your assistance to this problem will truly be appreciated. Thanking you in advance.
Ashley Furniture delivers more than just furniture. Back in June my husband and I purchased around $5,000...
I ordered furniture for delivery around the first week of November 2007. They set the delivery date for November 23 between 1-5:30. No problem except it was the Wednesday before Thanksgiving (just bad timing for me). There is no movement of the delivery time - whatever the magical computer says is what it will be and you just have to take it. So that same magical computer told the customer care people to call me twice to confirm this delivery time. -which both times I confirmed. The afternoon of the 22nd I get a call from Ashley stating that not all of my pieces had arrived and would be delievered at a later date.
Items ordered: Sofa, loveseat, recliner, two end tables, coffee table, dining room table, and 6 chairs - total $3,900.00+
Items Received on "promise" date: Sofa and loveseat.
New delievery date was set for December 5th - 2 weeks later. I got a call this weekend (Dec 1) to confirm my delivery and setup a time between 8-12. I agreed - cleared my work schedule and made arrangements to be at the house. Yesterday - Dec 3 - another confirm call and again I confirmed the date.
And now we come to today - the dreaded day before delivery. Aparently their magical computer system for scheduling does not really know ANYTHING. Because again I get a call that NONE - not some - NONE of the remaining pieces have arrived. How is that companies like UPS and FedEx know EXACTLY where my stuff is from point A -> Z but Ashley cannot lay claim to their own inventory! Needless to say they want to push is out to Dec 14th. Which I assume will be the next possible delivery attempt. I have a call in to customer care - I hope to hear something shortly. The beauty of the Ashley Furniture buying experience is that the Magic Computer knows everything and you can NEVER get to a person who holds responsibility or can make change. They always lean on that computer as the cause of and answer too all of the problems. Good Luck - I hope to eat at my table before Christmas. My recommendation - go somewhere else!
On Nov. 17,2007, purchased a simmons mattress set from ashley furniture for 1091.00. The sales rep never...
This is my first experience with Ashley Furniture. I visited and purchased a dining room set on August, 26, 2007. At the time of my visit the salesman, had the contract drawn up... when it was completed, he said there is no need to read all of that I'll tell you what it says and where to initial. I should have read the contract because what he failed to tell me was there is a NO RETURN/REFUND policy. The dining room set was delivered on 9/7/07 and I inspected it for scratches and saw none... immediately after the delivery guys left, I noticed that there was a gap between the ends of the table and the middle section on both sides of the table... I immediately called Ashley (only 15-30 minutes after delivery), that was when I learned they had a no return policy. I was told that a technician would be sent out to determine if my brand new table which I paid $744.22 could be REPAIRED. In the meantime after closer examination of the table, one of the end sections was stained a different color.
Two weeks after delivery the technician came out determined that the stain is called "green wood" (I think) and that the gaps could not be repaired. At that time I told him I wanted a new table that I didn't pay for a repaired table. He noted my comment on his paperwork (I failed to get a copy of it).
9/26 - Ashley's called said they had received the technicians report and a new table top had been ordered and it was take 7-10 days for it to arrive.
Since 9/26/07, I've taken off from work on 2 different occasions to meet Ashley's delivery guys and both time the table top had the same problems and I refused the delivery. On two other occasions, Ashley's has called to say another table top was ready for delivery and had to call back and cancel the delivery because both of those table tops are damaged. I hear from Ashley's furniture more than I do from friends and family. I will never purchase anythings from Ashley's again and I tell everyone I know not to purchase from their store. At the time of this writing it is November 24, 2007 and I still do not have a suitable dining room set. Today, I will file a complaint with the BBB.
I have had my furniture for less than a year. It is falling apart. I have made several attempts to resolve this issue with Ashley Furniture to no avail. I am holding a public protest at the ashley Furniture store in Mesquite, Texas on Black Friday (day after Thanksgiving). If anyone wants to join us, please feel free to come by. Thanks.
I am friends with an employee of Ashley furniture and when construction began on our new house, the decision...
I just read all the complaints on Ashley Furniture. I bought Libray latters which all were in good shape. My problem was when I need to reschedule the date I could pick them up. I was told that if I did not pick them up on the date given, they would send them back and I would have to reorder. I was only looking at a couple of days difference and not asking them to keep the merchandise any longer than that. When we loaded the furniture, there was no personnel to help. As you know, they are very heavy and it was just two women lifting the 3 boxes.
We purchased a couch that has built in recliners from Ashley in Greenwood, In. Total cost with warranty was 1400.00. It is only me and my husband and we both work long hours so we rarely use the couch. Upon settling into our new home (having the couch for less than a full year), we noticed it was falling apart. Seams were unraveling, the recliner mechanisms were failing making it difficult to close, casters were falling off the ottoman, buttons falling off, staples not properly placed were shredding the backs of the seat cushions, the spring fell in the middle section to the floor, the arms are lose, and so on. We attempted to contact the company to fix it. The did not return the calls, we tried to use the warranty-that company would not honor it. We went into the store to speak with the manager and demand money back for selling us the non-existent warranty- He refused and offered to send out their service team at cost to us! We the called the corporate company to complain and they contacted the store and demanded them to send out an tech. He took one look at the couch and said it was trash. He then ordered all new parts and said when they came in he would rebuild the couch in our living room. That was last December! Now I have couch parts and a trashy couch littering up my living room and I am still having to pay the rest of the 1400.00 off for a couch that I will have to turn around and replace.
To Whom It May Concern:
I purchased a bedroom suite and 2 recliners from Ashley Furniture on June 17, 2007. At purchase time, it was promised to me that I would have my furniture delivered by July 28, 2007. I thought this was an extremely long timeline to receive my furniture, but agreed with it due to the history that I have with Ashley Furniture. It is now August 9th, and I still have not received my furniture. After calling the warehouse several times, my husband has had the phone slammed in his face, a very rude customer service representative (Nicole), and an arrogant "manager" (Brock?) that was unwilling to help the situation any, just to name a few incidents.
After no resolution and frustration from the warehouse, my husband and I went to the Ashley Furniture store that we purchased our furniture from and talked with the manager on Saturday night, August 4. He was unable to help us that night and promised to call us with some resolution. We have been playing cat and mouse over the phone with Amanda and Rick Doyle and still (August 9) no resolution or help from Ashley.
I have purchased at least $25,000 worth of furniture from Ashley Furniture over the last 5 years. Since this incident, I have made the decision to never purchase from Ashley again. On Monday, I plan to seek legal counsel and contact the Better Business Bureau for advice, and hopefully, then, I can get this issue resolved.
I placed an order for a couch/loveseat that was ordered through interest free financing and received credit...
I bought an entire living room set and a king size mattress from them about a year and a half ago. Everything has been great, haven't had too many problems until recently. A while back,I noticed a hole in my coffee table. There was a pile of fine dust piled up just outside of this tiny hole.
I figured it was some kind of bug,sprayed it with bathroom cleaner and waited. A few days later, same thing,more dust coming out of this hole.
Sprayed it with some more potent stuff and it went away. I kept checking once a month for more holes but couldn't find any. Well, now I am moving and on a very detailed inspection,there are many of these holes. All "active" as they keep having these dust pile build up. I finally do an online search and find out its what they call a powderpost beetle. Seems they live in wood in a larvae stage for several years and the only way you know that you have them is when they "wake up" they start making these exit holes to push out the powdered excrement from them eating your furniture. So basically, I bought these bugs when I bought the furniture. The college websites say they talk 1 to 3 years to hatch. Imagine that, I am smack dab in the middle of that window. Of coarse now I am calling Ashley's asking them what they are gonna do about it. They are saying "well, how do we know these bugs didn't get in there from your home?" Well, my house is built on a prairie where no such things exist naturaly,and none of my other wood furniture exhibit these signs.
Anyhow, they are denying any responsibility. What a bunch of crooks. Beware if you buy ANYTHING made of wood from these guys. Its probably full of critters!!! Anything I can do?
Just wanted to share, we have had horrible customer service with the Ashley Furniture store on Woodlane Rd. in Mount Holly/ Eastampton NJ.
We bought a wine cabinet in Jan. and we were able to pick it up the last week of Jan. 2007 and on Mother's Day (just 4 short months later) the insides collapsed-- thank God my son wasn't hurt because there were shattered wine glasses and glass went every where. It could have been worse it the wine bottles had broken! My son was sitting in my lap in the living room when it happened-- it really scared both of us a lot. When we called Ashley Furniture, they never once apologized or asked if my son was injured.
We finally got the piece back today (6/9/2007) after threatening to go to the Better Business Bureau-- so that's what it takes to get someone to fix a defective piece of furniture that almost injured my 2 year old son?! If you have no interest in honoring your warrenty, then don't offer one.
I'm so sick of what it took to get our furniture back: the phone calls, the "we can’t find any record of that purchase", the "well, that department just went home," the "well, we're very busy today and can't help you," and the "just leave your phone number and someone will call you back." (Big surprise, no one EVER called us back— and then to add insult to injury, the store manager, Sam, told us today that he had already checked with the warehouse and knew it was fixed and they “should have called.” My point exactly.
My husband and I just went to get it and they claim they fixed it-- but the way they did it changes the appearance of the front of the cabinet. Plus there's now a big dent in the side/back and the decorative nails are coming out.
What if it had been a larger piece of furniture? (And this was just a wine cabinet! Imagine something bigger! And something we couldn't move back and forth in our station wagon!)
On 4/9/07 we purchase a living room set and mattresses from The Rockford Ashley Furniture Store In Rockford...
On February 27, 2007 I submitted my order to Mark Alan (distributor for Ashley Furniture). I took the liberty to browse through their showroom via internet and printed all merchandise to order (to make it very easy on Mark Alan).
Any ways; they submitted my order to Ashley Furniture on 3/1/07 and acknowledged order on 3/5/07.
I was promised a ship date on an entire living room seat, including end tables, entertainment unit, sofa table etc., and was promised a ship date of 3/26/07.
1. 3/26/07 came and passed no merchandise.
2. Promised a ship date of 4/5/07; again no merchandise.
3. Promised a ship date of 4/26/07; rec'd partial shipment waiting for sofa/loveseat to materialize. Sku#1830038 & 1830035 - new material (Ashley "Alexandria").
4. Promised sofa/loveseat on 5/5 - come and gone.
5. Promised again on 5/12/07 - come and gone.
6. Promsed again on 5/25/07 - come and gone and the distributor had the mfg. on the phone with me indicating a ship date of 6/8/07 they will follow through to make sure that date is met.
7. Original date have it was 3/26/07 and several promises has come and gone.
I informed the distributor to make sure date is met or I will cancel the order and receive a refund. They in turn tired hard to comfort me; and asked if I would like a replacement.
Whey should I replace something and the original merchandise did not materialize. I said, "NO". If I do not receive any merchandise I will cancel my order.
Today is 6/8/07 and the loveseat is on the truck but no sofa! The sofa will be in on 6/13/07 and I have had it with ASHLEY!
They service really sucks and with no information and/or customer service to help solve this problem.
If anyone should spend money they should receive goods... and I've been waiting far too long to be treated in this matter.
I suggest goods 1st then payment... I will not purchase any Ashley Furniture never again... you have lost a valuable customer!
