RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA -- Bought $8100 in furniture. Paid cash - BIG MISTAKE. Delivered wrong items on 6/11/16 and on re-schedule visit 6/25/16 damaged ceiling and wall of my NEW home. Filed a complaint and no response after calling them repeatedly for a month. Also due to exchanging items was supposed to get a refund. Got one check in mail and the other was to be a debit card credit back to me. As of today 7/21/16 NOTHING. Won't call me back. Won't resolve my issue. I have reported to Better Business Bureau and 5 On Your Side. I will never go there or recommend them. I have spread the word and will continue to do so until I get my refund and money for damage.
MIAMI, FLORIDA -- I purchased it January 2, 2014, and one year and seven months later the love seat has come apart at the seams. Customer service told Lori (who was a snob) that it was out of warranty and there is nothing they can do. I sent a pic anyways with the tear to firstname.lastname@example.org to see if maybe they can do something. I will keep you updated.
FT MYERS, FLORIDA -- Ordered a bed, waited 6 weeks. For delivery and set up. Arrived on Sat 10/11/2014 at 2pm. Was informed that hardware to assemble no with bed. Called store, was promised someone would come that day with hardware and assemble. It's Monday and still no one. Called store to ask them to pick up and was informed of their no return policy. They said they could ship hardware and I could assemble (Ya right ). I was informed I could go to arbitration.
DULUTH, GEORGIA -- Rooms To Go collects customer's money and then does not deliver accurate furniture or furniture in good repair. Order value was approximately $8,000. No refund or cancellation possible according to customer service. Order placed June 24th with delivery scheduled for July 12. July 12th order was “bumped” or re-scheduled to July 22 (10 days later). July 22nd order was delivered with a broken bedroom cabinet ($699 value) and two incorrect night stands ($599). Both the broken and incorrect furniture were left on property as the delivery drivers informed my spouse they could not take it back. I cannot park my vehicle in garage due to broken furniture.
July 28th I called customer service and asked to speak with a manager and explained problems. I was informed that no delivery service refund would be made or could I cancel the order because the furniture had been delivered. I object to this corporate response because in fact the furniture was either broken or incorrect and I did not accept the items. However, because the items were left on property according to Rooms To Go I had accepted the items and delivery was complete. No offer of immediate repair or replacement was made and replacement was scheduled for nine days out. No offer of reimbursement for delivery charges was made.
July 30th - Expected re-delivery of bedroom cabinet and two night stands. Interaction with customer service: I was informed that I am not entitled to any return, cancellation or reimbursement for damaged or incorrect furniture and that I had to wait for repair or replacement. Further I was informed that the company really did not care whether I choose to do business again with Rooms To Go or not because that was my decision. If furniture is delivered on the 30th it will be five weeks from date of order. I feel this is unacceptable and had we known we would have NOT placed the order. Rooms To Go takes your money and delivers (maybe) when it's convenient for them - not you.
MIAMI, FLORIDA -- I got a microfiber dual electric recliner sofa and a love seat from you on March 9, 2013. As of this time since the cushions are all out of shape, flat, and you can feel the springs in them. Also the stains in this 2 pieces of furniture won't come off. I was never given the special cleaner that I was supposed to be given at the time of purchase at your store per your ForceField Exclusive Fabric Protection 3 year Warranty Certificate that I was given with my purchase receipt.
It is obvious that this furniture was never professional treated before delivery as it states on the warranty paper. If I would have been given the cleaner I would have been able to get all the stains off as they occur. When contacted you via email at TellUs@roomstogo.com about this problem a technician was scheduled to come to inspect it. When he came he took pictures of it and was told will hear from you in 3 to 5 business days. Your response to this was: "Set overall soiled and requires professional cleaning. Once this has been done to give you a call to schedule a technician again to re-apply the bond."
I replied back asking about the cushions and comfort of the set in which I received a replied telling me that I never told you about this. I replied again sending you my original email to you so you can see this is not true. I received another response telling me that it didn't matter since nothing it can be done until I get it professional cleaned. I contacted you again via email and told you that it will cost me hundreds to have this done.
I received another response telling me that until I get the furniture professionally cleaned nothing could be done. All this emails were replied by **. It clearly shows you don't care and you are not willing to solve the problem at your expense but at my expense. And only thing you are doing is reapplying the bond. Nothing about the condition of the cushions. I also called your customer service department and I was told a different story. Was told that there was nothing you can do about the cushions/comfort of the set because is no longer under the manufacturer's warranty.
This all clearly shows that you sell very low quality furniture and is not worth it. I had furniture in the past that I have purchased from other places and have lasted years with no problems. This is not the first time I purchased furniture from you but it will be my last. As told you in my emails I will be posting my experience with Rooms To Go in any sources I can find to let everyone else know to be careful about buying things from you and better not to and buy it somewhere else!
PENSACOLA, FLORIDA -- I am a young person and my oldest credit card is only 2 years old. That being said, my payment history is perfect and I do not have any collections. The sales associate who assisted me at the local store told me there were 3 levels of approval, the first being the best with 27 month's no interest and the only down payment being the tax and delivery cost. The second was for 6 months no interest and a 20% down payment. I don't recall the third level.
The issue here is what they DON'T TELL YOU. They work with SEVERAL different lenders. If you are not approved for the 'Premium' level of lending, they will run your credit AGAIN through another lender to try for the second and third levels of approval. This means TWO inquiries on your credit and they are hard hits. As I am just starting out, my credit is easily affected by having multiple hard hits.
I was extremely frustrated with this and let me tell you - they DO NOT CARE. Their goal is to make the sale. I even told the sales representative I worked with that I had come back after looking at several places and he asked if I'd tried to apply anywhere else. I told him that I didn't want to have a bunch of hits on my credit and that I wanted to only apply when there was something I really liked. He still did not relay this bit about two hard hits and he was not a new salesman so it can't be that he just 'didn't know'.
Also, I called the store in town and spoke with the manager who did not care in the least. I then called their Customer Service department and after explaining that I wanted to make a complaint I was transferred to an automated line that just looped. I called back and explained this and was given their real customer service number. I talked with a woman that did not care either and just explained repeatedly that they couldn't do anything and she kept angrily asking me what I expected her to do about it. Customer service is garbage and they're very inconsiderate. BE AWARE!
NEWNAN, GEORGIA -- My husband and I began searching for new furniture several weeks ago. Our first day of looking we went into several furniture retail stores with the same experience at most. We would tell the associates that we were just looking and would ask for help if we needed. I know most furniture store associates work on commission and I did not want them to waste their time on us unless we were making a decision and I knew we were not ready to make a final decision that day.
We then went into RTG and began browsing. We told the sales associates the same thing that we told all the others. The first day we went to RTG (a Saturday) they were too busy to pay much attention to us. That was fine with us because as I mentioned we were just browsing at this point but it did make it a little more difficult to really look so we decided to come back.
We went back on a Monday morning when it was substantially less crowded which made it difficult (nearly impossible) to browse without associates coming up trying to talk us into a more expensive sofa than the one we were looking at or printing out pages of information on living room sets that we had no interested in. We mentioned again we were just browsing and we were not ready to make a decision.
My husband and I were attempting to discuss among ourselves what decision we would make and the associate would not give us the time or space to do so. We then decided to leave the store to go home and look online and discuss. The associate got visibly frustrated that we were leaving without purchasing (despite us saying upfront we were just browsing not ready to purchase) so we decided if we did order it would be online.
I placed an order on RTG online after a few more days of online browsing and was asked to complete a bizrate survey at the end. I completed the survey expressing my dissatisfaction with the in store process and was also asked how long I was having to wait for delivery (3 weeks). The 3 week wait was frustrating but dealing with the associates was much more so. I received a call about my bizrate survey and my "dissatisfaction with delivery time" and was told there was no sooner delivery time available. My dissatisfaction with customer service was never addressed. So we began our 3 week wait for furniture.
On the day of delivery I called RTG to find out if the 4 hour window might be narrowed down at any point (perhaps by the driver calling as has been the case in most major deliveries or installations I have received the last couple of years). The customer service representative told me it would not be narrowed down and if no one was there within 15 minutes of the driver arriving then the furniture would not be delivered. While I understand the policy the way the information was given to me was with little care and I later found out there was an option to "perhaps" receive a call an hour before although it was not guarantee.
However, this representative did not give me that information. I then called back the customer service representative (Melissa) who originally called about my bizrate survey. I thought that after reading the survey and seeing the frustration with the associates in store, the fairly long wait time, and then the frustrating dealing with the customer service that morning she might care to know more about a customer's experience. I could not have been more wrong.
As seems to be the norm with RTG customer service she had little interest in my concerns. At this point I began to get very frustrated. My frustration was with the lack of service and/or caring exhibited by the customer service representatives. She told me the drivers could not call ahead because they could not call while with a customer and could not call while driving. Both excellent points but as I told Melissa, many other companies manage to do so by perhaps calling after finishing with one appointment but before leaving for the next.
She said she could not speak for anyone's policies except RTG but then went on to say that she has "never received a call ahead from any company" (which to me seems to be speaking for other companies' policies). I told her the delivery was only part of my frustration and I was more frustrated with the lack of care any customer service representative has shown about the negative experience I have had with the company. She responded that SHE was not being rude and because I did not know the names of the representatives in the store there was nothing she could do.
She also expressed multiple times she could not help me because I was angry (I never cursed, yelled, or name called simply expressed my strong dissatisfaction that grew stronger as the lack of service from the "customer service representative" continued). I expressed that I was looking for some acknowledgment that I am a customer and some caring at my dissatisfaction or an apology would be great. She then said if I was looking for compensation she could not offer me that. The final resolution was she could offer a non-guaranteed call ahead from the driver or cancel my order.
My furniture arrived well within the four hour time frame and I even received a call 20 minutes before arrival (although it didn't really help as a non guaranteed call still means I had to miss work whereas if I would have known of the call I could have easily gone to work and returned home in time). My husband and I spent lots of time emptying/cleaning/preparing the rooms where the furniture would be going and removing hindrances to the process of bringing in the furniture (including moving other pieces of furniture that might be in the path and taking baby gates off of the hinges).
The living room furniture was placed haphazardly into the room with the pillows left thrown on the floor still in plastic. The delivery crew then moved on to the sofa that was going downstairs and I was promptly told the furniture would likely not fit through the door frame. And he then spent a few more minutes expressing how difficult it was going to be (I thought we paid for delivery for a reason). I showed him the much larger sofa we had just moved into the garage a few days before that had been moved through those same door frames to which he replied it was a different type of sofa.
The sofa we ordered did in fact fit through the door frames and was placed into the room (in less than 10 minutes mind you so not too difficult). He then got me to sign saying I received my furniture. After walking out he then knocked back on the door asking for a disposable fork to eat his lunch (I didn't have a disposable fork but I gave him a plastic one out of my dishwasher that he then asked to wash in the sink). When leaving this time he left the door leading outside open continuing to show little regard for the customer's home.
No representative of Rooms to Go has expressed any regret over the fact that a customer is dissatisfied and has decided to no longer be a patron of your establishment. My issues are not with RTG policies and procedures themselves but how I have been treated by every person who is supposed to represent RTG (sales associates, customer service representatives, and delivery crew).
I understand that we all have bad days so if it was just one experience with one representative I would not feel the need write this but every person I encountered that represents RTG was at the least disinterested in my satisfaction and at the most outright rude. I would hope a company would feel the need to make sure a customer is heard, even if they cannot satisfy every desire, which is the exact opposite of what happened. I did not feel my complaints were heard, acknowledged, and definitely not addressed.
TAMPA, FLORIDA -- We bought a living room set less than a year ago from Rooms To Go. The furniture is of cheap quality. Staples coming out, cushions busting at the seams. We paid for Scotchgard. And furniture is clearly not scotches guarded. They came to "fix" it several times. And the furniture is still falling apart. They will not replace the furniture, but want to keep sending techs out to try and repair it. They also want to send out yet another set of replacement cushions. DO NOT BUY FURNITURE FROM THERE. They have very cheap quality furniture. Very disappointed. I still have my furniture from Big Lots since 2009. Furniture is still standing strong.
CONCORD, NORTH CAROLINA -- We were not treated very nicely by a salesperson in the showroom because we had our children with us. I had come back to look at the 3-piece large sectional in blue several times. It looked really edgy and comfy. We ended up ordering it and when it was delivered, the men knocked over and broke a couple of one of a kind pieces of pottery. We never received the proper fitting cushions for the couch. One side of the couch end cushions juts out the wrong way. We have had the couch less than a year and it is sunken, misshapen, and uncomfortable. I wish I could send it back! What a waste of $2500. :(
