Harbor Freight Tools Complaints & Reviews

Harbor Freight Toolscustomer service

Went to buy a generator. 3 day holiday Sales. At register to purchase was told sold out. Asked when more would come in, girl said they didn't know when next truck would be in. 2nd clerk said the next truck would not have any either. Asked why run a 3 day sale on something you don't have in stock. The 1st clerk couldn't answer any questions the 2nd made effort but then a third person who worked there showed up cutting in never identified herself. She was rude, abrasive, condescending, nothing constructive to add, and succeeded in an escalation. Said, No ordering in store, they sold out yesterday and did not keep them on the floor but in the back, sold out due to hurricane(which was over a week ago). I had been in 2 days earlier and there were none out, yet the higher priced had 1 in box on floor and the cheaper ones were boxed on floor. So why weren't they in the back? There was no out of stock sign on anything. I never got a "I'm sorry. Or even a "Let me check in the back to make sure."The 3rd had nothing helpful to say. It became an irritating exchange in a store I normally shop at but will refrain from now.

    Harbor Freight ToolsSales Supervisor

    I enjoy going to Harbor Freight to shop. Since I have visited the Whiteville NC store my shopping experience has not been so nice. the Retail Supervisor, Jason, is very unpleasant. Every time I have been he has seemed to have an attitude and very disrespectful. His demeaner is less than desirable. He seems to be disrespectful not only to customers, myself included, but to the cashiers. His tones, facial jesters, and body movement states it all. I a have heard him talk profanity to them as well. I am really displeased with him and his actions. I hope someone can work with him to be a better person or let him go. I am not the only one that feels this way. I have several friends that feel the same way. Something needs to be done.

        Harbor Freight ToolsCoupons and prices

        I just want to express my opinion to the Harbor Freight Brass. I have been a loyal customer to your stores for years and part of that was due to the 20% discount coupons and the little freebies you offered. Now that you have discontinued those, I will shop at other tool stores. Also I notice your prices for Chinese tools (which I have no problem buying, not for their quality but for the price) have gone up quite a bit. If your prices compare to Home Depot, Lowes, and tractor Supply, I will shop there instead for better quality. Please don't price yourselves out of my business. Please DO NOT blame the coupon issue on the Wuhan Flu like one of your employees tried to pawn off on me, We all know that is BS. Thank you for letting me vent my disappointment with your store.

          Harbor Freight Toolsnot sticking to price

          This morning I pulled a picture and price of 209.99 for a cement mixer. I sent a driver 2hours to Dubois Pa store and was told the price is now 229.0. so I come inside and look it up on the computer and find that it is changed. I spoke with the manager and was told sorry and that his rep explained it to my driver.
          A customer that will pay a driver to go 2hours to pick up a product and to be told this. shame on Harbor freight. I did in the past buy a lot of tools from Harbor Freight and a Harbor freight at that time the closest is 2 hours. Well with this kind of service you will not see one cent from me or anyone that I talk to. It is a shame that you can't honor your prices all day at least. 20.00 dollars is not the biggest problem the fact that I sent someone 2hours is. Think the next time your employees brush off someone as that 20 dollars cost you a whole lot more, at least hundreds in not thousands in the future .

            Harbor Freight ToolsTools/Work Environment

            I just thought I should mention that I was in a Harbor Fright Store and it really STUNK of something like manufacturing, or machinist's oil. I guess they use it to produce cheaper tools (I think their cheaper, at least)? That can't be healthy to breathe or get on your hands. I can't believe it's even legal.

            Come on Harbor Freight! Show that you give a damn for more than just the bottom line!

                Harbor Freight ToolsCustomer service/shipping problem

                Bad customer service and worse shipping experience ever. Placed an online order. Over a week didn't receive any shipping notification on order, emailed customer service. Take 2 days for a respond. They claimed my order were on backorder. I request to cancel the order then. 2 days later received another email saying they can't cancel order because it was shipped prior and gave me a tracking # which supposed to arrive in 1 week. Week past and nothing showed up. Trace the tracking with Fedex and they showed the order was pasted onto USPS to deliver. Trace the tracking with USPS and its been 5 days now USPS still claim they have never receive the package from Fedex. Contacted Harbor Freight customer service and still no respond.
