WILMINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA -- We visited our local Rooms To Go store in Wilmington, NC to purchase at least two rooms of new furniture. Before my visit, I'd printed off several items I was interested in. **, was our salesman. He greeted us when we went in the store, advised he could help us, and promptly disappeared while we looked around. After we'd decided on the pieces, I went to find **. We discussed our furniture and then looked at the living room set. It was the Angelo Bay set, sale priced advertised at approximately 1000.00 as a 3 piece set. The room setup showed a recliner, end tables, sofa with chaise and ottoman.
During our conversation, we expressly asked if the recliner was included in the price for the set. We were told it did. It was advertised that you could get a television as well. At no time did ** mention that the TV Package was an additional 688.00. His sales info was extremely deceptive. This turned out to be a major issue- of course, when we received the furniture, there was no recliner- it was NOT included in the package, and there was nothing that could be done.
The second issue was with my nightstands. I'd previously purchased a bedroom set from RTG and needed more stands. ** told us that the original set was discontinued, but he could get comparable nightstands. I mentioned to him that my set is black and would need black. He stated he could get them with no issue. When my furniture arrived, the truck had wooden nightstands, in the wrong finish.
When we contacted ** and ** to advise - we were told that the stands didn't come in black (and they also asked "Can't you use the walnut stands?" No, I can't. It's not what will match, what I wanted, or what should have been ordered.) We had to call the store multiple times with absolutely NO resolve. ** told us at least twice that there is nothing that can be done about our errors... his suggestion? Use the money we spent on the stands to buy the recliner! No thank you. I will never order anything from Rooms to Go in Wilmington.
The sales experience with ** was absolutely horrible. Such a shame, because my last order with ** at the same store was wonderful. If this is how they treat a 5500.00 that was paid, in full, on purchase... I would hate to see how they treat customers who purchase only one or two items at the time. This store and this company, it seems, doesn't care after they get the money in pocket.
NORTH CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA -- I recently purchased the Dumont King Bedroom set from your store in Charleston, SC. However, within the first night the bed was loudly squeaking any time anybody moved in the bed. As I am a light sleeper, this is absolutely not acceptable especially considering the price of the bed. I immediately contacted Rooms To Go Customer Service in order to have a technician come look at the bed, and was told nobody could come look at the bed for another two weeks. That unfortunately meant another two weeks of sleepless nights with continuously getting woken up throughout the night.
To make matters worse, when the technician did finally arrive at the scheduled 4 hour time window he was by himself. He proceeded to look at the bed and confirm that it did indeed squeak very loudly, but that it was a two person job and we'd need to schedule yet another time window where we would have to set aside another 4 hours to sit at the house. Our order showed the size of the bed we had, and the problem we had so there is no reason why two people should not have been sent the first time, the reassembly of a king size bed of that size is always going to be a two person job.
After setting up another appointment we waited the entire time window and nobody arrived. Upon inquiring we were told the driver called and when nobody answered, he chose to not leave a voicemail and just not show up at all. Once again we scheduled another 4 hour time window and yet again nobody showed up and not a single missed call this time.
At this point I am done dealing with customer service and inquired about just having the defective furniture picked up for a refund since Rooms To Go is too incompetent to rectify the problem, but was told we couldn't do so without a technician looking at the furniture. Well a technician did look at the furniture already the first time and confirmed the problem, we just can't get a technician to come to correct the problem.
GREENSBORO, NORTH CAROLINA -- After spending approximately 5500.00 with your store I can say it has been a very horrible experience. I received my first delivery of my two ticket order numbers ** on 3/19/13. I came to the store and made an exchange of some pieces. Pick up and exchange occurred on 4/2/13. TV chest delivered on 3/19 was damaged. Server delivered on 3/19 was damaged. Console delivered on 4/2 was damaged. Repair man came on 5/7 and further damaged furniture.
I submitted photos to RTG was told I could exchange all 3 pieces except the server was discontinued so I would either need to pick out a new one or receive a 15% discount = 67.50. Next delivery scheduled for 6/27 to replace TV chest and console. 6/27 TV chest and console delivered- TV chest in good condition, console once again damaged. Sent back with truck.
Contacted RTG discussed damaged console said order would be flagged and warehouse supervisor would inspect prior to delivery. Would offer 20 % on Server and no more 90.00 I had 30 days to decide. I informed I had been to the store and can't find another I like and that 90 dollars doesn't pay to repair what I have. 6/19-deliver console- box sealed- not inspected- back corners smashed damaged as before. Sent back to truck and not accepted. Spoke with April. Tried to negotiate rate on server. Rate not accepted. Promised warehouse supervisor would open console box and inspect console prior to delivery.
7/26- received call from driver they were on their way at approx 7:45am. Received voicemail from ** at 8:15 stating her driver was at the end of my driveway and could make it down my driveway to deliver. I returned the call to dispatch. ** was very rude. Obviously RTG has delivered here many times before. I won't even get into the rudeness of the dispatcher at this point. My brother met the driver. The driver was expecting my brother to drive him along with the console once the box was opened. The box had not been inspected. The box was opened. The console was once again damaged. This time on the back lower corner with exposed wood.
As far as I'm concerned you can come pick up the entire order. You can't get what I have right. I paid a decorator to get a certain look for my home and now I have damaged furniture. Come get it ALL. I've read RTG reviews on line. Shame on me! I'm posting here just for starters. I've been very patient. 5 deliveries later not so much.
We do apologize for the experiences you are having. We have seen your posts on other forums and have responded. Again, we would like to look further into this for you and see what can be done. If you would like for us to do so, please contact us at Tellus@RoomsToGo.com "Attention My3cents". Again, we apologize and look forward to assisting you with this matter.
RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA -- I went to Rooms to Go searching for living room couches. Initially I went in because it seemed like everything was reasonably priced. I found some cute couches that I liked that were going to cost me about $1500. I put a good amount down and convinved myself that financing would be OK. First the young gentlemen that helped me ended up putting the wrong address for my bills to be sent. I started getting a little concerned after I had not received a bill after the 60 day mark the gentlemen who sold me the couches had said.
I received a phone call from GE Capital who I financed with and they had told me I was behind 3 months! This of course upset me telling them I had not received a single statement. We then figured out that the address was incorrect, but that I still had to pay late fee and 3 months. This was ridiculous to me since it was not my fault they had received incorrect mailing address
I ended up paying it anyway, and I received my statement for the next month, but after that month started not receiving them again. I called GE Capital and man said that mail was being sent back. He said they would not charge me late fee and that my statement would be received in 6-6 business days. Of course it was not received. I tried setting up my account online and it did not work. I was beyond frustrated. 2 months pass by and I have now received a phone call from GE Capital telling me I am 3 months behind and I need to pay it now.
I explain my problem and man apologized and says it looks like our records were not updated. RIDICULOUS!! I don't like to exchange any of my credit card information through phone so I told him I would pay the amount once I saw a statement in front of my face. I will NEVER be recommending Rooms to Go or ever step foot in that building again. The threads on my couch are coming off and feathers keep coming out of my pillows. Do NOT do business with Rooms to Go.
We apologize that you are having so many issues with GE Capital. Unfortunately, they do handle the financing and all payments internally. While we cannot change that information, we can have our finance department look into having GE Capital contact you. In regards to your living room furniture, we would like to see if there is anything we can do to assist with that. Please email us at TellUs@RoomsToGo.com "Attention My3Cents" along with your order information and we can look further into your account. Again we apologize for the disappointment and look forward to hearing from you.
GULFPORT, MISSISSIPPI -- In July 2013, I purchased a bedroom set and mattress ($2, 250.00 approx) for my son. It was delivered with multiple but small scratches. Knowing how hard it is for me (due to work schedule) to arrange for pick up and delivery, etc... I decided to allow them to "fix it" (Bad decision). The work is sloppy. The small scratches were less obvious than the marks/spots on the furniture after they are finished "fixing it". I took a deep breath and although upset, I let it go.
By Feb 2013 the drawer runner had almost disappeared (the wood had "shaved" and the drawer was not staying centered). I was very busy at the time and did not call them to come fix it until the beginning of May 2013. Two weeks later (mid May), the technician came and said he couldn't fix it due to not having the parts needed (I understood although I did not understand why I wasted time describing over the phone what was wrong with the dresser if the technician was not going to come prepared). He said it would take 2 weeks and he would give me a call. I let him know, it would have to be a Saturday (day off) and he seemed perfectly fine with the request.
Two weeks later, a message was left on the answering machine (by the technician himself) letting me know he would be coming the next day (weekday) at 8 am. I called him back but there was no answer so I left him two messages (at different times) to let him know a weekday was not possible for me. I never heard from the technician again.
I called Rooms to go again at the beginning of June. I was mad and I have to admit, also rude because I was very frustrated with their service. This was complicated by a condescending attitude from the customer service staff over the phone. I was told there is nothing they can do and I just need to wait for their call. I wanted to established another complaint about their service but I was denied the chance because I already had a complaint and there was nothing for them to do for me.
Tomorrow is June 30th and no one has called me from Rooms to Go. The product is still under warranty plus I bought extended warranty on everything but they literally behave as if they do not care and have no intention to fix the defective product. I have had other problems with them in the past. Seems that there is always something wrong but has taken me 3 purchasing "tries" to complaint online.
Please, do not believe their commercials or their sales staff. They will tell you what they know a customer wants to hear. When the moment comes to make it right to the customer, they turn away and let you sink. The products are not of good quality and the customer satisfaction experience is dreadful.
ARLINGTON, TEXAS -- Bought a mattress from Rooms to Go. Don't do it!! It's been a nightmare! Slept on it for 2 nights. Very uncomfortable my hips and back hurt! Called customer service wanting to exchange it. Very, Very rude customer service employee told me they have a "NO RETURN Policy" and I was "stuck with the $1300 purchase". She claimed it was all in the paperwork which I read and never found!! The store saleswoman claimed she was told not to tell the customer about this fact unless specifically asked!
The store FINALLY did make good and replaced the mattress after making me keep it for 2 weeks and then incredibly delivering a wrong second mattress! Finally a month after purchase (and $152 more delivery fee) the right mattress was delivered and I'm sleeping well but I will not never again shop at Rooms to Go! Sad because I've been a very long term customer!
COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA -- I bought a leather living room set from ROOMS TO GO about 2 years ago and now the leather is cracking. I also purchased a protection plan when I purchased the set so that if anything happens it would be taken care of. So, I called to get my leather set repaired, but they said that my protection plan was only for spills. I can't believe I wasted over $160 for a protection plan that could never be used.
I also purchased a dining room set a couple of months after I purchased the leather living room set and now the chairs wood is wobbly. I barely use my dining room, so how can something that's barely being used break down this quickly?? Please DO NOT buy a thing from this company, because you are not getting your money's worth!!!!!!!!!!!! Room TO Go are crooks and they charge way over price for poor quality furniture!!!!!!!!!!!!
AUGUSTA, GEORGIA -- I purchased a new bedroom suit from Rooms To Go that was in their ad booklet and asked for a delivery for June the 5 which was 17 days after the purchase. The issues that I have is they are telling me that they couldn't deliver the bed until June the 21th which is more than 5 weeks after the day of purchase. How can you print a ad booklet stating that you have next day delivery with this bedroom suit in it saying that they have next day delivery. I gave them 17 days to deliver that bed! I have a big issue with Rooms To Go and will never purchase anything from this company ever again. I will make sure I tell anyone not to purchase from them also.
AUGUSTA, GEORGIA -- Our nightmare with RTG began Nov. 2010. We ordered a leather couch and love seat. About 4 months later we noticed faded streaks in both pieces. Of course you have to call the 1-800 call center, I call them 1-800 idiots, to have a tech come examine the furniture. The tech comes and says they have this fading occur on this furniture all the time. I wanted to choose a different furniture and RTG said no I could get same kind again. Well I did. Two months later the "new" set begins to fade. I called the 1-800 idiots and they sent the techs again and the techs said the same thing about the fading. Well I still don't want my furniture replaced. I only want them to pick up furniture and just let me be finished with RTG. They said I could replace it with another kind of furniture. Well we choose more sorry furniture. On this third set of furniture the frame was bent on the recliner and because the front legs on the love seat were to far back it would tip forward throwing you out of the seat. The 1-800 idiots said we were not sitting on it properly. Well I begged the local RTG people to please take furniture back. I just want to be finished with them. Its like they continue to punish you for making the mistake of buying their sorry furniture. I am now on my fourth set set of furniture. I hate the day I ever set foot in RTG. I want everyone to know how awful the furniture and service is. It's a shame you have a LEMON LAW on a vehicle but you don't have one on furniture.
NORTH CAROLINA -- Since 1999 I have attempted to resolve a dispute with Rooms to Go, their finance company Household Bank, Na and now a collection agency named Sherman Acquisitions. I opened the account on October 31,1999. On October 31,1999 I purchased a complete berdroom set when it was delivered the molding on the footboard was completely detached from the footboard, I received a cherry oak siderail when the bedroom group was sandlewood, the sandlewood siderail had dents in it as well as white paint skuffed in several different places on it, and the metal slat supports that go under th bed were missing. I asked the delivery people to take the furniture back and send the order when it is corrected, I was told that they could not take furniture back once it is off the truck. I would have to contact customer service. Between the November delivery date and January 15,2000 I tried in good faith to return the damaged goods but again was told by the delivery people that they were not allowed to put stuff back on the truck once it was taken of so I would have to contact customer servic. Customerservice told me that they don't take returns, due to that I then attempted to come to an reasonable resolution to receiving damaged goods, an incomplete order, missed delivery dates (on five different occasions) and terrible customer service but was unable to get assistance from the Rooms to Go's "customer satisfaction team", I went to their University City showroom in Charlotte on January 16,2000 and spoke with store manager Bill ****. I explained to Mr. **** what went on and after some negotiation I was offered a $400.00 store. I asked Mr. **** for a day to think about it since I had gotten damaged furniture the first go round, and he granted me that. On January 17, 2000 I returned to the RTG show room to accept the $400.00 store credit. When I went to the store I spoke with salesman Rick ****. Mr. **** informed me that Mr. **** was not on the premises but stated that he needed to speak with the office staff to verify my story and would assist me from there. Mr. *** came back and informed me that his staff was aware of my situation but Mr. **** left notes that I was only authorized a $300.00 store credit. I was livid because it was $100.00 less that what he promised me the day before needless to say I felt powerless and did not know what to do. I walked around the store for a while looking for a $300.00 item that I was willing to accept and found nothing, I decided on a 5 piece dinette set selling for $477.00. Mr. **** processed my order and at the conclusion of the sale had worked out a deal so that I paid an additional $36.72 for the dinette set, delivery and fabric protection for the chairs so the account balance would be increased only by $101.71. Delivery was set for January 26,2000 between 11 am and 3pm. On January 26 the dinette set was delivered on time, however the table was damaged. The table corners were badly smashed in and one the seat backs was separated from the chair. I called customer service and was treated rudely but I did manage to get a delivery date and time set up. The delivery was set for Saturday February 5th between 3 and 7 p.m. On February 5th the replacements for the dinette set and damaged chair were to be delivered. This time THREE corners of the table were smashed in and no replacement chair was received. I called customer service and they scheduled February 12th for the next delivery date. February 12 came and I waited all day and no delivery showed up. I left for work at 7:05 p.m. when I arrived home from work an sorry we missed you note was on my door stating that an attempt was made to deliver at 7:20pm. I again called Customer Service but this time demanded that they come get all of the damaged furniture, since their solution to compensate their damages turned out to be a flop but was told that they do not take returns. Because that I was unable to get the problem resolved with Rooms to Go in March of 2000 I decided to file a dispute with their finance company Household Retail services. I sent Household Retail services a statement of chronological events with dates, times and names of every person that I encountered between October 31,1999 to February 2000. In May 2004 I received a letter dated May 19,2000 signed by Mr. Paul **** customer service Representative ruling in my favor for in the dispute. This resulted in the account being credited for the full amounts of $201.74 and $1956.98 total $2158.72 and closed which let the account at a $0.00 balance In October of 2000 RTG contacted me attempting to get me to sign a "Customer Charge back Authorization" form or send them a check for the full amount that was credited by their finance company. The form stated that I was to sign stating that I was happy with resolution that Rooms to go gave which was the damaged dinette set and chairs to compensate for the damaged bedroom set. Because that statement was untrue I declined both attempts that were made to charge back the amount that was disputed and or re-open the account. In 2001 I pulled my credit and the account was closed with a $0.00 balance. In April 2003 I was preparing to qualify for my first home and discovered that the account had been re-opened, charged off and sold to Sherman Acquisitions for collections. Since April of 2003 I have spoken with Household Retail services, Sherman Acquisitions, the Better Business of Charlotte and two of the three credit reporting agencies that will not remove the account from my credit report. Trans Union Deleted the account in 2002 and has not allowed it to be reentered to my credit file. The collection agency and the CRA' keep telling me that the 13 pages of documentation proving that the account was fraudently re-opened is not sufficient to remove the account from collections and or delete it from my credit file. I am now faced with not being able to close on my home in December if this is not resolved by then. I CAUTION anyone from buying or receiving ANYTHING from Rooms To Go even if it was free.
