CORDOVA, TENNESSEE -- After delivery I contacted customer service number to have service person come for sofa filling. The person I spoke with was not giving me a clear response to my question regarding time needed for service to be completed. After three times I repeated my concern I finally got an answer with clarity. I said "thank you" and she slammed phone on me. I've purchased three sofas and two recliners in the last nine years and this is the customer service I get.
I made two more phone calls to headquarters to respond to such terrible customer service and I was told someone in management would call. No one ever did. This will be my last Ashley purchase resulting from the worst customer service imaginable.
NORTHFIELD, NEW JERSEY -- Sales person Teon ** and store manager John ** of Ashley Furniture were wonderful in assisting us with a problem we had while purchasing our furniture. The store offers the best customer service without pressure, as well as a great atmosphere and huge selection.
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.
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.
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
LAKELAND, FLORIDA -- Purchased a high end leather sectional in September. The unit was delivered approximately 10 days later and the sofa was damaged. We did not accept delivery of the sofa. Customer service sent a second sofa out about one week later. That sofa was also damaged, we did not accept delivery. A third sofa was sent for delivery on 14 Oct and that sofa had a hole in the leather.
We immediately called customer service again, and they have promised another delivery. My point is that we purchased new furniture and Ashley keeps sending out damaged furniture. One would think that there would be some sort of quality control within their system. If you purchase furniture from Ashley, I would recommend that you inspect it upon delivery. It should not take over a month to receive furniture you pay over $4,000 for.
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA -- If you call Ashley's corporate number you will hear… The cornerstone of Ashley… "We strive to give our very best to retailers, to give exceptional customer service, to offer quality and value, and give quick deliveries." HA! What a lie! I experienced absolutely NONE of those things in my buying experience at Ashley Furniture store.
Aug 20 - I spent $2800 buying a bedroom set, sofa and matching chair. My salesperson was nice. My furniture was set for delivery on Sept 4. Sept 4 - I received the wrong color sofa and chair. The delivery guys took it back. My nightstand and dresser both had big scratches in them and the bed foot board had the corner bashed up so much raw wood was showing. I took pictures and headed to the store to show them the damages. My salesperson looked at them then handed me a brochure with a customer service number on the back and told me they didn't handle this stuff in the store that I needed to call that number and they would take care of everything.
Sept 5 - I received a call from a man saying he was the store manager and he wanted to clarify the color of green I wanted in my sofa and chair. I tell him the color should be cream NOT green. Sept 6 - My salesperson calls me saying he doesn't understand what color green I mean… I say C.R.E.A.M not green. Cream! I admit at this point I'm losing my patience and I call the store to speak with the store manager. He tells me he's been doing this 26 years and this kind of thing happens all the time and their furniture repair people can "work magic" in fixing the damaged items and I should just accept this is how it is on the sofa mix up.
I leave work, drive to the store, and this guy says "there is no pleasing you" when I tell him he needs to fix this or give my money back and proceeds to cancelling everything in the system. Turns out though, he is the Sales Manager NOT the Store Manager. She remembered me from the day I bought everything and says if I give her a chance she will make everything right. She gave me her number and said to call her if there are any problems. I agreed to give her and Ashley's a chance. In hindsight, not my smartest decision. We clarify the numbers for the cream sofa set with a delivery date of Sept 20. The repair person is still set for Sept. 27.
Sept. 18 - I received a phone call saying there is a problem with the manufacturer and my sofa set won't be here until Oct 1 but that they will deliver it to me the next day. I call ** the store manager. It seems we are back to too bad, so sad again. She tells me I have three options - 1) she says I can come in and pick out another set but I need to make sure it's in the system otherwise it will probably take just as long for delivery as the original one I ordered, 2) If I really like the cream set I can just wait for that one, or 3) I can come in and get my money back. Not quite what I would call the let me make this right options.
Today, Sept 27 - My repairman shows up, looks at my furniture and says there is nothing he do to fix it. I quote, "It's a matte finish, matte finishes have scratches. It's the packing it sent that scratches it. I can put a gloss finish on it" and "I have let them know I can't fix it and they will order you another dresser and nightstand." Huh? Who believes I'll see that before the second coming of Christ??? Not me!!
I called Ashley Corporate office and spoke with a man there who is going to pass this along to the representative that services the Ashley store at Decatur and 215. He says they're privately owned… or franchised I would call it, either way they are representing Ashley's name! I called the local customer service number. The girls there are sweet as can be but it doesn't seem like there is much they can do since they only handle repairs and deliveries but she, too, is supposed to call me back.
In the meantime. Hello Better Business Bureau where I posted a review. Hello Social Media and every review site I can find where I have or will be posting reviews until this is resolved. Hello to every single person I meet for the rest of my life who even hints they may be looking at or shopping for furniture. I will tell them DO NOT SHOP AT ASHLEY! EVER! They will nice until they get your money and then you don't exist for them.
