WISCONSIN -- This company is terrible. I bought a $2,000 sectional (yes, $2k, not the $500 cheap one). It arrived damaged, and it took 3 service calls for them to fix it as well as 15+ phone calls of them moving the appointment, confirming, etc. Yes, they eventually fixed it, but that was 12 hours of leave from work that I had to miss.
Their customer service number people are rude. If you have to call them for service, I highly recommend also signing up for meditation, a therapist, or getting on Xanax. Their sales staff are nice people, I'll give them that. On the other hand, I know a used car salesman that would love to be your friend... My advice, buy from somewhere else. If you buy from them, don't forget that small claims court is a very easy process...
EDGEWATER, NEW JERSEY -- Purchased an office table for $1000 and a platinum coverage for the same. Just 2 months prior to the expiry of warranty period one of the legs cracked and the table became unstable. We raised a claim and were promised that a new leg would be replaced and that we will be contacted soon.
It was just few days before the the warranty would expire and no one contacted us. When called back to check status, we were told that this damage is not covered and only scratches are covered under protection. Why would someone pay a premium coverage fee just to protect the furniture from scratches? We are still trying to get someone talk to us and they just put us on hold. I am sure this is a trick to buy time and make sure the warranty expires. Stay away from Ashley. Totally unprofessional.
GLEN COVE, NEW YORK -- My husband and I purchased a firm Stearns and Foster Mattress from Ashley Furniture at the Glen Cove location in NY. Three months later, I am sinking into my mattress. They sent out a "tech" to take a look at the mattress and I saw the report he wrote. The mattress was sinking. Now, Ashley claims he reported nothing wrong with the mattress and everything is fine. They refuse to replace my mattress. I paid over $1000 for this item and I am completely dissatisfied. They are refusing to take any action.
Please be advised never buy anything from Ashley. Their customer service is **. They are only kind to you when you're purchasing items and the moment they sell the item to you, they are nasty and do not want to help you! Do not buy from them! They are frauds!
JONESBORO, ARKANSAS -- We recently purchased a tempur-pedic mattress from Ashley Furniture in Jonesboro after looking at several stores around town. We thought we picked out a mattress that was more expensive but worth the extra $ for comfort and longevity as we had our previous mattress for more than 15 years. They told us a memory foam mattress takes a few days to get adjusted to as it is a little different than an inner springs mattress but once we adjusted we would love it. Well, in our fatigue of looking at many stores we neglected to ask about their return policy on the mattress if it didn't work out.
After sleeping on the mattress for 2 weeks and still not adjusting I was ready to exchange and get a different mattress. The store does not really have a return policy on mattress (I don't think) but we contacted our sales person and he had the store manager to contact us.
Brad the store manager was very gracious and allowed us to exchange the mattress (in the middle of the craziness of the store moving locations) and even pick out an additional piece of furniture to make up the difference in the cost of the less expensive mattress. I am grateful for his attitude of "we just want you to be happy with your purchase" and "we want to make it right with you!" Great customer service!! I am sleeping better on our 2nd choice of mattress and love the additional piece of furniture.
MIAMI, FLORIDA -- I apply to this company. After 1 month I still waiting for my recliner. I'm very disappoint with this company. Professional management and delivery company working very bad with the customer. I'm not recommend this company to buy anything. They working very bad.
INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA -- I was told by Ashley today that they have not gotten enough complaints on the DuraBlend material to warrant taking it out of their stores. Please email any pictures of your "peeling" sofa to: **. My couch, loveseat and chair are peeling and flaking, disintegrating before my eyes.
AUSTIN, TEXAS -- Good afternoon. This is in regards of the worst service I never got before. I am a customer since 2002, and I been purchased all my furniture with you (El Paso and austin area). Two years ago I purchased a bed set and a dining set (3000.00). After that I remember that on my last purchases I bought the premium warranty (one for 99.99 and two for 79.00 all in El Paso, TX). So I deal with ** (store manager by that time). She explained to me that because I bought in El Paso, I'll be difficult to give me the credit. Anyways I wait for 2 weeks and she called me to inform me that I got the credit. By that time I decided to wait.
3 Weeks ago I decided to buy a new living room set (2000.00) and I explained to the salesperson about the credit. He pointed me to the store manager (**) and she just told me that we need to start all over again. She asked me for the paperwork and I asked El Paso store for it and they email me with it. I pass the paperwork to her and she mentioned that will take about 10 days. I went Saturday for it and the customer service lady just told me "I don't know anything, you need to speak with the store manager."
I came in today and she was there. She asked me for the paperwork again and I told her "you guys already have it." She said no. I brought the paper again and she start gave me a story about the credit only applied on same items like if you bought the premium warranty on a sofa, the credit is only on a sofa purchase. I told her "tell me what you say to your customers when you are selling this warranties." She don't told me anything and I, just repeated, "looks this is what you say your customers if you buy this premium warranty and you don't use in five years you can get full store credit, or am I wrong?"
She just explode and she told the lady next to her to call the police yes the police. I told her "OK just cancel my purchase please." She told me "it is done" and then I asked her for a receipt. She gave a paper and she told me "you'll get a check in 15 days," but the paper doesn't said that. I asked her for a paper that said that and she got a picture frame with a policy and she put that in my face.
She told me "get out of my store or I going to call the police again." I just told her "don't worry I am calling the police now." The police told me that they got a call already about it and just explain that I just want to let them know that I not doing nothing that ask for my money back. What an experience. What a way to lose customers. Looks like $179 hurt you guys a lot. Cannot wait to see you sink with that kind of service. Is horrible. Thanks for taking the time to read this
GREENWOOD, INDIANA -- The absolute worst experience I have ever had with buying anything! So disappointed and still have no furniture. Our orders - yes, two of them, were placed on 11/9/14 and today - 1/13/15 I still have no living room furniture and the issue with our mattress/base has not been resolved. Ashley didn't have a problem cashing or taking the cashier's check for payment immediately. The people who have answers and can get things done never call back and make empty promises. No one has consistent information or can give us a true timeline. We get nothing but lies and delays, more of them every day.
We ordered a mattress and adjustable base. They scheduled delivery for a Saturday, my husband took the day off of his commissioned job on the busiest day of the week. Only to have them never call back or show up. After multiple phone calls to the warehouse, customer service and the store, and a trip back to the store - we did end up with delivery around 6 pm that day, only to get the wrong mattress! Ultra FIRM as opposed to the ultra PLUSH we ordered.
Long story short, we ended up sleeping on what felt like a board for a full week before we ended up going into the store and taking a FLOOR MODEL just so we could alleviate the unbelievable back and neck pain my husband and I were experiencing by this time. Still, we do not have the updated invoice or information for this transaction. Though customer service calls at least once a week to deliver the mattress and base that they brought now 6 weeks ago. The wrong mattress by the way.
Every time they call I ask for the status of our living room furniture. And every time they check I get a different ready or estimated date. I've been told every time that most pieces are in stock, but one or two were not in yet. I've been given no less than 6 different estimated delivery dates. Then on 1/6 I received another call to schedule delivery of our wrong mattress. When I asked them to check on our sectional again, and the lady said "well it is all ready to be scheduled, let's schedule for 1/13/15." Skeptically, I agreed. I received an automated confirmation call on 1/9/15 confirming delivery for 1/13 at 12:30. Then it came.
They call on 1/12 to let me know that they would be delivering everything except for the end piece with the left arm. This is a sectional! I do not want part of it, it does me no good. Yet another trip to the store… for the manager to assure us that it will be unloaded and it will arrive with the rest of the pieces. That he will confirm this and then call us first thing in the morning, prior to delivery. So here we are, still waiting, not really expecting a phone call at 10 am.
I am so over this, and now just thinking that every time I look at this furniture, I am going to think about nothing but all the headache it has been to get it. I am disgusted and feel like I have been taken advantage of in the worst way. We were promised that these pieces were made to order - all at the same time so they would be made from the same leather and stitching, etc. Clearly a lie. We were told our delivery should be around 12/8 "but we will put 12/23 on the paperwork just to be safe and make sure you get it before Christmas". We were told so many things, all lies. Spent several thousand dollars. For nothing. And still no furniture.
