SCSendurance sofa and chairs

M Review updated:

On March 2013 I recieved a endurance sofa and two chairs off you costing £1, 981 with the leather guard and delivery in the past year I have had to call guardsman to repair the sofa twice as the so called top layer of material (leather) has started to come away on the sofa .This is now happening to one of the arms on the chair I have been informed by the engineer from guardsman that this sofa is not a real leather but you were advertising it as so .Guardsman have informed me that you have stopped making this type of sofa and have only offered me £1, 129.47 to replace my furniture so I will have to put the difference but why should I when obviously this material is faulty and you should be able to keep your sofa for longer than 3 years I look forward to hear from you .You can email me or contact me on [protected]
Many thanks

    Well that's interesting as I have the same issue, took a cushion to the store and have been advised to claim off the insurance (which won't cover it as it's not actual accidental damage!)

    Purchased on 4 years interest free and it's lasted less that 2.5 years and looks bloody awful!

    I have a feeling this may get messy - endurance my #!

    I complained again as the insurance company just said it wasn't an 'insurable' issue and SCS offered to replace with an alternative 3 piece but none I liked so they have now refunded my £150 deposit and all monthly payments, removed the endurance sofa / chair and I have now purchased something else from another supplier.

    Top marks to SCS for excellent customer service and recognising that a manufacturing fault was the issue - replace or full refund offered - great result

    @Darren Bond I'd love to know how you got SCS to acknowledge there was a problem. I purchased a "Endurance" suite, delivered Feb 16, noticed the same problem around the 1 year mark, but progressively getting worse. It took a while for them to agree to inspected it and they said there's no fault! - it looks a right mess and mines not even 2 years old yet! It was advertised as - tough and robust (it's not, no small kids or pets in house), easy to clean (I dare not clean it in case it gets worse), no wonder they've stopped making it!

    Ordered sofa 4 months ago with deliver date of 14th august, got rid of old sofa day before, since been informed that delivery will be delayed at least another 4 weeks taking it into september, checked online reviews and many others seem to have had similar experiences and now concerned with some customers stating that they have had issues with leather peeling on the same sofa that I have ordered so now feeling very stressed been on facebook scs sofa & furniture complaints group and feeling quite gutted.

    @David14082017 Hi, I purchased the same sofa yesterday and am waiting for my delivery in 11 weeks time. How have you found this sofa?! I am slightly concerned too. Thanks.

    I’ve recently purchased a endurance cassius corner sofa and I was told I would have to wait 12weeks for delivery, at first I wasn’t bothered by that but today it turned up only to find out one part was sent out incorrectly. firstly I had to put up with the delivery drivers arguing that I had ordered the wrong thing even though I had the order form showing what I ordered, to then have the warehouse manager telling me it was my fault and the wouldn’t deal with it, then to call the shop in newport to be told I could either take the bit that was correct and wait for the rest or they could send me a different bit in the wrong colour until they could get the correct bit in another 12 weeks. so in my opinion scs standa for [censored] customer service.

    Please could someone tell me who is best to complain to. We were informed it was leather, or something along the lines of 70% leather but with a softer feel or something but just as tough as 100% leather. I now know this not to be the case. My hair gets bits in it every time I have been sitting on the sofa. I have a 2 year old who is always spilling things and the patches are getting worse and quickly. One half of the sofa that gets used more is complete ruined. It was a lot of money for something that is awful. What’s the point in supplying a leather kit for something they are now saying is fabric.

    I bought a suite from the endurance range and it’s all perishing. SCS sent out an inspector who rejected any claim for replacement or repair. My suite looks an absolute mess.

    I bought the Ashley endurance suite had it 15 months and it started to peel everywhere contacted castelan through my extended warranty and was told it was wear & tear and that was that even though it says I’m covered for peeling leather now it is 4 years old I am disgusted and will advice anyone not to entertain this pretend leather suit and their so called extended warranty which cost an extra £200 this suite cost £1200 I’m mad as hell with scs

    We also had the endurance Ashley 3 seater and a 2 seater, were given a leather cleaning kit and sold to us as leather, only to find 2 years after purchasing it the 'leather' started to peel and the shop and extended warranty didn't want to know. They said it isn't leather and is not covered on the insurance. Looks terrible!!
