SUNRISE, FLORIDA -- I purchased a countertop from S.C. Floor Covering in Norton in October, 2007. The salesman who sold us the countertop explained the product and the installation procedure. He highly recommended the installers and said that they used them all the time. On October 23, I received a call from S.C. Floor Covering to say that our countertops would be installed on Friday, October 26th between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm. We took the day off from work to be there and let the installers in. Needless to say, the installers did not show up on Friday. Because S.C. Floor Covering closes early on Friday, we were unable to get them to help us with the installation.
Only after many calls to the installers, did I arrange for them to come out on Saturday. But, we had missed a day's pay for NO reason. When I spoke with S.C. Floor Covering in Norton, I said that I was surprised to see that they did not reimburse us for the missed days pay. The salesman told me that they do not do that. He also said that they lived up to their contract and delivered the counter. However, NOT on time, when promised. I think that if S.C. Floor Covering were decent they would have taken off the missed day of pay. I would NOT recommend them.
BOCA RATON, FLORIDA -- On May 21, 2007, I purchased a wall unit for $1,064.84, including delivery. I declined the "In-home service warranty", as they told me that the "manufacturer's standard warranty applies". Yesterday (July 4), my dad and I were finally putting items in the unit and one of the door brackets (hinges) came loose.
I called City Furniture today and was told that I was out of luck, that if I wanted them to fix it, it would cost $40 for someone to come out. They said that they allow "one courtesy call" per purchase to fix anything that's wrong, which we already used (one of the drawers was badly damaged when it was delivered and we asked it to be replaced). We expected such as small defect as fixing the defective bracket to be taken care of, but was sadly mistaken.
MIAMI, FLORIDA -- After 4 months of having the sectional it fell apart in two different areas. The spring broke in one of the seats and the chaise split into two. I have no children and a 7 pound dog, it's not like there is anyone jumping on my furniture!! This couch was supposed to last me for years. Customer Service does not care!!! I have spoke to them several times and they just sent a service man to fix the spring.
While the sectional was taken apart I got a chance to see the quality of the furniture from underneath, NO WONDER!!! They put the wood together with the cheapest wood they could find and stapled the wood together!! HORRIBLE QUALITY!!! DO NOT BUY THIS FURNITURE!! IT WILL FALL APART!!
PEMBROKE PINES, FLORIDA -- We purchased a bedroom set for $2500 and within 1 month it broke. The lip or side rail of the bed and one of the legs is broken. They sent a tech that we paid $45 and he wanted the money upfront without doing any work. The tech determined that the bed broke because it was not set up correctly by the delivery guys and that he needed new pieces to fix the bed. They charge an extra fee of $60 to fix it even though it's not our fault it wasn't set up correct. This is the truth. Save yourself the trouble. These people don't care about their customers, customer service is awful!
TAMARAC, FLORIDA -- I purchased a leather recliner as a Christmas present for my husband at City Furniture in Tamarac, Florida. My brother picked up the chair for me on December 24, 2010. He did not unwrap the chair because he was assured by a representative in the warehouse that if the chair had any problems it could be returned and exchanged for a new one-no questions asked. When we opened the chair that evening to surprise my husband with it when he arrived home, we found that the chair was broken. It does not sit evenly on the floor which causes it to wobble. We can't use the chair. I have called them 4 times and each time was assured that a repair person would call.
Needless to say I am thoroughly disgusted. I feel that City Furniture should just give me a new chair. What a Christmas gift huh? City Furniture has extremely poor customer service.
First & last purchase with this company. Before you make the same mistake make sure you fully understand that ALL SALES ARE FINAL! No sales person will tell you this - they are driven by the all-mighty commission.
I purchased a $2000+ sofa and love seat, added an end table and cocktail table. Delivered the next day at 10 pm. After delivery men left figured out tables were too big and not exactly what I wanted. Called the next day to see if I could return them. Once delivered they could not be returned without replacing them with other merchandise and a $100 fee within 48 hours. This company obviously does not care about building relationships. I will rejoice the day I see them go out of business. Shameful practice, disgraceful service.
PEMBROKE PINES, FLORIDA -- I am BEYOND upset right now with the service of City Furniture. I have been a valued customer with them for years and just this year alone I spent over ten thousand dollars in furniture and was ASSURED that when purchasing their warranty my daughters furniture would be completely covered if something was to happen to it such as the paint peeling of and other things. Well guess what? The ONLY thing they said they could fix was a draw handle!! Can you believe this! They used the cheapest material and paint on their furniture and now they are not willing to fix nor replace it!!!
WARNING to any potential customers "DO NOT TAKE THEIR WARRANTY." It is a scam. They will not replace anything major that will happen to their items...
NORTH MIAMI BEACH, FLORIDA -- March 26th, 2010, we received our furniture by City Furniture in Miami Florida. The delivery men were prompt, and brought furniture upstairs. Our Queen Sleeper was much too wide to fit through the doorway. As I explained to ** (delivery man), to halt the process due to the lack of space, he continued to ignore my requests, and forced the sleeper while breaking off our thermostat, severely damaging walls, and chipping off fresh paint. As I continued to observe the anger building up with **, I kindly requested that they call their Supervisor or City Furniture to repair all damages. They agreed. As I noticed their call to office had not been made, I called in front of them.
While on the phone with ** from customer service, he screamed and yelled stating that HE WAS GOING TO MAKE THE CALL! Making me feel very uncomfortable. His aggressive nature was frightful, unprofessional, demeaning, disrespectful manner was uncalled for. City Furniture, needs to assure themselves that they hire unaggressive men for such tactful and serious positions as such. Such a position requires not just "warm bodies", but customer oriented, polite, respectful, and not aggressive men-especially when receiving these employees in the company of women, whom are home alone!
This needs immediate attention, as to other women might suffer the same serious situation that I suffered or it might be worse the next time.
WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA -- I purchased a City Furniture wall unit on March 1st 2010, and when I purchased this unit I also purchased a bridge to go with it. When we were buying this bridge we were debating buying it as it had 3 shelves that hung down and we thought would get in the way of the TV we were purchasing. The salesperson said you can always buy it and then return it if the TV does not fit the unit. So we purchased thinking we would be able to return once we had the TV delivered. TV was delivered 3 days after the wall unit, and wouldn't you know, the bridge got in the way of the TV.
When I called customer service, they said that there is nothing that they can do and that if you don't want something on the delivery you must return it with the driver. Although when we purchased this unit, the salesperson said otherwise, they did not accept the return of the bridge even after numerous phone calls into management explaining the conversation we had with the salesperson. Buyers, I would not recommend City Furniture as their customer service is, in my opinion, one of the worst in the business.
ESTERO, FLORIDA -- Worst experience ever. Bedroom set had used q-tip in it. Scratches all over it. Kitchen table was sent back twice. Delivery personnel were rude and rough. Please purchase elsewhere!!! If you must check everything very carefully with a bright light. If you do not own one, then please purchase one from Home Depot/Lowe's. It will be worth it. Do not hesitate to send furniture back. You are the consumer and you are buying new furniture; therefore, it SHOULD BE NEW!!! Shop somewhere else!!! Shop somewhere else!!! Shop somewhere else!!!
