IRVING, TEXAS -- On November 14, 2009 I purchased a mattress, box springs and a king-sized based from "The Dump" in Irving Texas. The total for these items was 1740.66. This includes $59.00 for a delivery fee. They set the delivery date for today November 21, 2009 between 3 and 9 PM. Around 4 pm I called them to find out when the delivery will happen. At that time I was informed that the mattress was not going to be delivered. The salesman had assured me that the item was in stock.
I drove immediately to The Dump. I asked for the manager. I did not want to talk to the salesman again. I asked for my money back. Again I was directed to salesman for a different mattress. I informed the manager that I had a house fire and had been sleeping on a rented mattress and bed. I did not want to do business with this company anymore and I need my money to go to a different place. I was asked to leave the business. I walked around and asked some salespeople if this was normal business practice for "The Dump."
Then they called the police on me. You got it. They have my money, no mattress, and they call the police on me. I am the one being held hostage. I am the one being robbed. So I leave. I go back in about an hour later and quietly walk to the customer service desk. I ask for a refund. After about twenty minutes I hear one of the salesmen say the police are coming. Can you believe it? I am standing there quietly waiting on my refund and they call the police again.
So I leave again and call in. It will take 7-10 days to get my money back (remember I returned my rented bed). They wanted to charge me for coming to pick up the box springs and base. It only took 2 hours on the phone to get rid that extra charge. Now they don't want to refund my original delivery fee. Anything they can do to hold on to my money. I paid them cash. I didn't hold payment for 7-10 days and then short then my gas and stress.
LEVITTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA -- My girlfriend and I went to The Dump in Levittown, PA on a Sunday and purchased a sectional. When we got back to Delaware, we went to another furniture store and saw a sectional that we originally really wanted on sale for literally half the price we paid in Levittown. We called to cancel our order at the Dump and were told that we would receive a call back. Since they only have weekend hours, and we canceled our order at around 4 PM, it's safe to assume that they were not able to get back to us since they closed at 6 PM. I got a call today saying that the furniture was scheduled to be delivered tomorrow sometime in the afternoon.
After going to the website, I noticed there isn't a number for their customer service department, which is open 7 days a week. Google did not pull up the number, so I had to call the delivery people and they gave me their customer service number. The Dump's customer service number is: 1(866)-662-8947. I was also told that the business office of each location is open from about 8 AM to 3 PM or so every day, so one could call the store and reach the business office. I cannot confirm this as of now.
I found it strange that they wouldn't have their customer service number, but only their hours on the website. I made a complaint about this to the customer service representative I hope she follows through. I hope this helps someone else.
LOMBARD, ILLINOIS -- I was looking for a real wood dining room table. NOT plywood or laminate over particle board. The tables and dining chairs at the dump were exactly what I was looking for. REAL MAPLE ALL MAPLE, not bits and pieces of the table or chairs!!! I had searched other furniture stores and found particle board for the same price. Also my table has an amazing leaf that drops down into the table, self storage at its best. The staff was very helpful and not overbearing considering they work on commission. If you are looking for cheaply made furniture do not shop here. I will not bash other stores but those who know quality furniture know what I am talking about.
They also have an amazing program. (I had to pay a small fee that I will get BACK in a store credit if I do not use.) If something happens to my table I can get it repaired or replaced within 5 years. My friends and family are actually considering giving their 4-5 year old tables away to purchase what I now have. Thank you the Dump!!!
ATLANTA, GEORGIA -- For the past 2 months I have been working with customer service, ** to be exact. I purchased a new sofa from the Atlanta store. Upon having it for 2 months the cushions began to "pill up" and get lumpy. No one would come out and look at the sofa. I was then asked to provide pictures... then was told that the manufacturer would "replace the covers". However, I was made to pay shipping.
I have now been waiting for over 3 weeks. I am very dissatisfied with the "Customer Service" agent. Not only was she rude, unprofessional, and would not return my calls. I will never buy anything from The Dump again. They do not stand behind their products. All I wanted was my sofa replaced in a timely matter. But was told that was not their policy. Buy at Your Own Risk!
5700 RT 42 TURNERSVILLE, NEW JERSEY -- We bought a Dormia Mattress from the Dump. The salesman personally assured me that if the mattress caused pain, (which he said is not the same as comfort) pain is pain were his exact words, they were exchange the product. Well, just got off the phone with customer service. The woman repeated to me, "unfortunately all sales are final, we don't exchange for comfort or height." I told her what the salesman told me, she just acted like she didn't hear me. She repeated "All sales are final. We don't exchange for comfort or height. It's on your sales receipt."
Omg! I am so upset. I am calling my credit card company with hopes they can help me! I am a nice person and I don't like being lied to. My husband was laid off from work for over 8 months. He finally went back to work. We needed a new mattress and this is what we get, very sad... Well, it doesn't matter if you're in pain, you're screwed if you buy a mattress from The Dump.... Buyer beware!!!!
We have been trying, in vain, to get The Dump to honor the warranty for a defective sofa we purchased in March 2009. After much phone shuffling and visits to the store, we are now at the point where we want to warn anyone interested in making purchases at The Dump that their customer service is non-existent. The Dump refers to the quality of the furniture they handle. Buyer beware!!!
