We bought a sofa and loveseat set back in April. The delivery, price and appearance of the sofa were all good. However we had to order a new sofa cushion after our puppy peed on it. We ordered it at the beginning of June and it is now October 13 and still no cushion. They cashed our check though back in June. at least 15 calls later they promised it would be here by Oct. 10- guess what! no cushion. I will never shop at Bob's again. And don't buy their "goof proof" protection- it is a rip off. They sent someone out and all they did was spray stuff on it and rub it in with a wire brush, and we still had to pay for a new cushion that we never got.

I bought an expensive black lacquer bedroom set with a mirror wall from Bob's discount furniture. The following year the top of the mirror wall came smashing down on my head in the middle of the night!
I called Bob's customer complaint dept. and asked if they would come out and remove the bed wall for me, (I was willing to pay for it), and I received a rude answer of "you need to hire a handyman", "what do you expect when it is a year old". I even sent Bob personally a letter about what happened to me, he was not helpful. So if you want his furniture to "COME ON DOWN" on top of you buy his garbage that he calls furniture because that is what it truly is!!
I have never been back since and I tell all of my friends to stay away from that *** and his junk furniture.
I bought a new mattress at Bob's Discount Furniture. The mattress was priced right and is comfortable. The bed frame however was a PIECE OF JUNK! The legs bent and broke off less than a month after I bought the thing. I called customer service and they sent a tech guy over a week later. The tech guy said that the frame was damaged by accidental customer damage and not manufacturer defect (hello the stupid thing should last 10-15 years not 3 weeks!). Then the store told me that they would not replace the frame because I did not by the Goof Proof (or whatever) plan on the frame. I was NEVER offered the plan. It was only offered to protect the mattress (which I bought).
The ads practically scream that they guarantee 100% customer satisfaction, but that is crap! Even though I am very happy with the mattress and what I paid, I will never EVER by anything from Bobs again!
Bobs was supposed to deliver two rooms of children's furniture to my home today! My 19 year old daughter was home and instructed them to put the bunk bed set in the larger room and the twin bed in the smaller room! She went outside to finish cleaning a rabbit cage and noticed through the window that they had still put the wrong items in the room. She went in and again informed them that they were in the wrong room. When she came in the house the bunk bed was completely set up in the wrong room!!! At This time I arrived home from work and the delivery man was on the phone with his supervisor trying to figure out what to do!
After 45 minutes he came in and informed me that he was behind schedule and had to go!! I asked to speak to his supervisor and after 45 minutes of him sitting in his truck he brought me my phone and said the supervisor was on the line!
I took the phone and he sped off in his Penske truck! In the mean time I was left with a dresser in the middle of my hall and bunk beds in the wrong room. There are screws and plastic on my floor and in the other room they left the captains bed upright in the middle of the floor!! I have3 children, 2 eleven year olds and a seven year old and they cannot go into the rooms safely. Now here's bobs solution! The first very uneducated customer service person told me that we wanted the beds to be moved to another location after assembly which is what she was told! That was the first clue to her major intelligence. So asked to speak to her supervisor. Now enters the only person who has an IQ at bobs discount furniture! I know that I still have a dresser in my hall and beds in the wrong room and no one can come for 2 days but I was offered an apology and a 75 dollar gift card and best of all someone at bobs does have an EDUCATION!
Not even 1 year ago I bought a whole living room set. It starts when they delivered, they delivered damaged furniture, the delivery men call the store & tell them furniture is damage "no problem" they say we'll deliver another one for you, (coffee table, sofa table & end table) aside from the couches that would be ALL the furniture I bought! They also tell me it'll take another 2-3 weeks before I can get another shipment, fine I'll wait if I must! Well 2-3 weeks later the replacement comes in, guess what... DAMAGED AGAIN!!! This went on about 3-4 times when I finally had to accept damaged furniture, well the one piece, which they would only give me 40% back for after I screamed & yelled about it, (they never offered to do so I had to scream & yell!) Almost 1 year later, the one leg of my coffee table collapsed, try to put it back just to realize the ignorant ppl they send out to put the furniture together forgot to put 1 screw in that's why the leg collapsed. My finance & I manage to get the 1 leg to "work" until a few months later when all 4 legs collapsed, (it's a glass top) luckily the children didn't get hurt! Call up Bob's tell them what happened they send someone out to tell me that b/c the first leg that fell apart was never called in there's nothing they can do about it!! What about the other 3 legs? It's not my fault Bob's has crappy furniture! They refuse to do anything about it! So after spending OVER $2000.00 on furniture that is supposed to be well built & "you will never have a problem Bob's will stand by their product" so I was told! I'm stuck with a totally & completely destroyed piece of furniture & in a round about way I was told by Bob's "OH WELL! NOT OUR PROBLEM!" I will NEVER recommend Bob's to anyone & will be sure to let everyone know what horrible customer service & furniture Bob's has!
I put an order in to get replacement cushions for my couch in October. I was told it would take 4-6 weeks which made me thin Thanksgiving., By the time Thanksgiving rolled around and passed I started calling to see where they were. I recorded the amount of phone calls and they amount of time I was put on hold and even wrote to them. I called weekly and asked and kept getting the answer that they were on the way. Christmas came and went and still know replacement cushions - Then the Superbowl came and went and I kept calling and always saying that they had left the warehouse and they are on the way. Well In Feb. of 2008 I must have gotten a new employee who hadn't heard my story and she told me that they were being sent from a third world and yes they were on the way. This didn't sound right so instead of waiting a week, I called the next day and low and behold they were not able to get the delivery so they canceled my order. All I needed was the foam cushions! Not the material - no just the cushions. I am so pissed at that company! I will never go back. I will never allow any of my friends or family go there either. They never even had the courtesy of answering my letter - no apology - no nothing. He ***!
We purchased bedroom set for 14 year old girl 12/02. By April of 04 the dresser was bowing in the middle. We purchased the goof proof for an extra $100.00. Guardsman told me "you live too close to the beach, that caused the particle board to warp, and so sorry, we don't cover warping..."
Appalled, I let this go. I admit, my fault. Recently stopped by Bob's to see if maybe we could replace the dresser, as of course it has worsened. Now none of the drawers close. (this child is now 18). Salesman told me they would come out on best effort service.
Tech came out on 8/8/08 He said "staples hold this thing together" so he replaced the staples with screws but said "you have to call guardsman to have them come out and rebuild the dresser". He put me on the phone with parts dept at Bobs who assured me even though warranty expired with Guardsman, he would speak to his liaison and help me out. He dropped the call, but I was still holding with the Guardsman music.
Guardsman said, we see your claim, it's been PENDING since April 2004. WHAT???? OK, what do you need? They requested copy of invoice with case number, which I immediately mailed to them, as I had my notes on it from the call in 4/04.
On 8/19/08 Guardsman called to deny any claim, stating that I was out of warranty, and they waited 4 years for me to mail the copy of my invoice! I asked to speak to a sup, and was referred back to Bob's customer service.
Now the Bob's rep says, we'll send the tech back to your house, because "I AIN'T GOT NO IDEA WHAT HE TALKIN BOUT"... that call was set up for 8/26.
Ah, no show, no call. I called. Found out that call had been cancelled by the service department, on 8/21 as tech said he couldn't do anything else, and was caused by customer abuse!
This rep called Guardsman, who said out of warranty is out of warranty, and the claim has aged out of the system. Guardsman says "no further options".
Bob's rep says, let me send a DIFFERENT rep to your house. He showed up today 9/4/04, and guess what... this is a manufactures defect... center bar snapped, support under top of dresser off... oh well, so sad lady, can't help you.
He put me on the phone with yet another Bob's rep, who reiterated the same. You're out of warranty...
I asked how to contact someone other than her, and was told, "there isn't anyone, but you can write to Consumer Relations
428 Tolland Tpke
Manchester, CT 06040
"That's Bob's secretary, she'll get the mail"
I may just take a ride there to speak to Bob myself... Connecticut isn't all that big!
Ok I had a delivery today per the salesman The delivery men were supposed to take down the old bed and frame and setup the new bed, frame and mattress', they came saw the old bed and said they do not take down the old bed and when asked if they set up the new on they said they do not...they told the person at my house they "HAD TO" sign for it and he did so, when they left he went to put it together and the queen split box springs were incorrect...there was a king half and a queen half...I called the main number at Bob's in Totowa and was disconnected about 15 times before getting through...sounded like someone on the phone just not talking...finally got the salesman he said they are supposed to set up and he can't do anything about it...gave me delivery number I called 20 minutes later she said she left a message for them to come back to my house but no guarantee I will have a bed tonight...
What gives Bob's drivers the right to think that they can leave their trash from a delivery in the Street...Bob needs to teach his people about respect. On Sept 4 they made a delivery and unboxed it in the Street...First they had the Street blocked by the empty box and this caused drivers to come to a stop and work there way around the empty box. After the delivery the removed the box but left the bands and the white foam in the road and drove away...This was left on the Street some 4 feet away from 3 trash cans...Bob...if your going to come into my neighborhood you had better show some respect.
I had a bedroom set delivered for my daughter, although we did not pay alot, we did not expect great quality but something decent until she is older, then we'd buy a quality- long term furniture. Well boy did we make a mistake in buying from Bob's. We had to have the original set returned because of crack, nicks and blemishes. The second set was slighltly better with the exception of a dresser, and the third dresser was cracked after we were told the manager will inspect this before it is sent out. What a disappointment- the first time they offered a $50 store credit- what a joke. Never again!
We had bought 2 complete bedroom sets and also purchased the goof proof warranty, the furniture has fallen...
I purchased a living room (leather sectional) set from Bob's Discount Furniture in their Nanuet, New York location about three (3) months ago. At the time of purchase I paid $2, 000.00 plus additional monies for their goof proof warranty/guarantee policy. I recently noticed that on a section of the sofa a huge stain has developed on the leather. I called customer service which was not very helpful with my complaint in the beginning, and with persistence they finally agreed to send a repair person to evaluate the condition of the sofa. I was shocked and dismayed when the repair person told me that my couch will not be replaced or repaired, even with the goof proof warranty/guarantee because the stain my couch has is not covered, because according to him "the stain is due to my hair products". I asked him "hair products", he answered yes "hair products, shampoo, conditioner and hair sprays; this may have caused the stain and therefore Bob's is not liable". In the years of using the same shampoo and conditioner I have never and I quote never have gotten stains not even on my pillows due to my "hair products". I immediately called the store and after much persuasion they agreed to send another repair person to evaluate my sofa set again in two (2) weeks. I feel like I was duped out of my hard earned money by Bob's Discount Furniture. I felt confident in my purchase, but after my recent encounters and problems with my new furniture that is only about three (3) months old, I am very disappointed and angered. I have researched this company and have read hundreds of complaints like mines and also with the same issue of the goof proof warranty/guarantee that they never honor. Customer Service is uncooperative; the home reps they send are aloof, just as uncooperative and not helpful. This company should be stopped for their false advertising, false warranty/guarantee and repeatedly ripping off hard working consumers.
I purchased living a sections living room set from BOBS from bobs and they delivered the incorrect pieces, not once but 3 times, then the pieces didn't match at the end, I was told I would have to call customer service and have a repair man come out and adjust the furniture so the sectional would connect - match up (this would take a 4th visit.
Oh yes, I call customer service and told them to take the whole sections out of my house. I was so unhappy with Bobs. I would never buy anything from them after being on hold and then being transferred from one person to another to another. Very unhappy customer.
Their furniture is definitely the WORST QUALITY I have ever seen! I was going to buy somewhere else, until everyone kept talking me into going to Bob's (Brookfield, CT) The color sectional I wanted (or rather settled for) wasn't in stock - so I had to wait almost 3 months before it was finally delivered - but that's not even half of it.
I have never seen such POOR QUALITY/ WORKMANSHIP in my life! I don't see how they can advertise that they beat the competition . . . who might that be? Salvation Army is the only place I can think of that would have anything to compare!
The fabric is so THIN, you can actually see the frame behind it, and then it's loose on top of it - waiting to see how long it'll take to rip open.
The sectional pieces DON'T MATCH UP & HAVE GAPPING HOLES BETWEEN THE SECTIONS, that is, if they're even the same size.
The seat cushions have SUBSTANDARD FOAM that has PERMANENTLY BOTTOMED OUT only after a few months use & they are only covered w/ FABRIC ON ONLY ONE SIDE - the other side has some CHEAP BLACK LINING fabric (that they actually use on the bottom of the couch to cover the frame) - so you CAN'T EVEN FLIP THE CUSHIONS for even wear.
The back pillows are also CHEAPLY MADE/ LOOKING with zippers that don't sit flush & stab you every time you sit down. The interior filling isn't enclosed in a liner, so it's not exactly feasible to wash them if need be - or you just have a big pile of stuffing all over the room.
The PULL OUT BED is enough to cause SERIOUS PHYSICAL HARM should you roll over the wrong way, with a VERY SHARP METAL FRAME THAT STICKS UP HIGHER THAN THE MATTRESS OR COUCH, with a HUGE SPACE on the side next to the couch AND head of mattress - so if you have kids, I could easily see them GETTING A LEG CAUGHT/ BREAKING if not seriously careful moving around it.
Never noticed the PLASTIC LEGS on it until it got here either.
And the WORKMANSHIP upholstering it in general is the absolutely shabbiest job I've ever seen - have to make sure it's against the wall so no one can see the STAPLES & HOW POORLY THE CHEAP FABRIC IS LINED UP *SORT OF*, never mind where it's NOT EVEN FASTENED ALL THE WAY AROUND. WATCH OUT FOR THOSE STAPLES STICKING OUT ALL OVER THE PLACE TOO - they're definitely SHARP!
A couple of grand for the BIGGEST PIECE OF JUNK I'VE EVER SEEN!
I purchased a sofa, two end tables and a coffee table from BOB'S DISCOUNT FURNITURE for $1000.00. The...
I purchased a full 6-piece bedroom set, a few days after the delivery I noticed the back panels were tacked on and beginning to pop off and warp. The drawers were also warping, and the paint discolouring. It has since worsened and is becoming increasingly unsteady. When I went into the store to complain, the sales clerks tried to sell me more furniture, and blew off the complaints. Customer service asked if I bought the warranty (which I did not, I questioned their quality...) after much debate--Surprise, surprise their was nothing they could do! Do Not Buy from Bob's... It is "CHEAP".
After not one, two or three adventures with this ### company I have once again fell for the cheap Asian oak furniture that is either damaged or doesn't come in when the salespeople "promise" then after literally dozens of useless phones with uneducated inept personnel at the local store and central customer "Disservice" department your frustration level goes beyond any experience.
This one is hard to explain they keep calling me telling me that the TV entertainment unit is in and ready for delivery and then email or call a day later and apologize that a piece is damaged and they’re out of stock after getting all my money.
This has repeated 6 times within the last two weeks and both customer service and mgmt are useless and offer only pathetically weak I'm sorry's. Avoid this amateur, sloppy, low end weasel company at all costs the perceived savings are a menagerie. Stay as far away as you can or get abused.
I ordered 2 bar stools and was told I could pick them up the following Saturday. On thursday I was called an told they "didn't make the truck", but not to worry that they could instead deliver them to my house on Saturday free of charge. Great. Two hours later I get a call saying they can't deliver them on Saturday after all, but they can deliver them during the week 7-5. Well, I work and don;t want to take off work to wait for a delivery (the whole reason I arranged to pick them up in the first place). They can only deliver them to my house. Not to my work. Not to there store where I could then go pick them up after work. They admit this makes no sense, but this is how they do things. Worst customer service staff I have ever encountered. Takes forever to speak to a human then its always the wrong human. I will never do business with them again and will tell everyone I know to avoid them as well.
