ATLANTA, GEORGIA -- Upset I have to leave ANY stars. Worst experience ever. They screwed up; lied; refused to make it right and now I am out a week plus had to pay someone to sit there for 5 hours while they went TO THE WRONG HOUSE and then lied that they weren't. Ordered $2500 of appliances from Home Depot. House is on the only street in town of its name (no possible way to confuse); the mailbox and the house have the number (no possible way to miss).
The delivery timeframe was 3:30-7:00. So I had someone there at 2:30. At 6:12 I got a call while I was in the bathroom that the house was vacant. I called back literally TWO MINUTES LATER at 6:14 and was told that she had called at 6:00 and they were "long gone" even though I had a time stamp. She was rude and unapologetic. She claims they tried to call while in the driveway YET the driveway was full of 2 vehicles OF THE PEOPLE WAITING for the order for hours. Then she says the house is white and vacant. NO the house is gray and NOT vacant.
She claims then they couldn't find the house or the street. There's 6 houses on a street 200 feet long and they can't find it. Sure. It's 10 feet from the road with the street number that matches the order. ME THINKS THEY ONLY WANTED TO GO HOME. It was 6:10 and rather than deliver and install a large order they went to wrong house and then said they couldn't go to the right one because I was two minutes after they called to say they're at wrong house!
I told her to call them and go back. No she can't do that. I argued with her for 10 minutes before she finally said she would call them; she put me on hold and hung up the call! So I called Home Depot to discuss the abhorrent attitude and lack of service. They basically told me sorry, too bad, they can come IN A WEEK. Unbelievable. I am cancelling my order and will place it with Lowe's. DO NOT ORDER FROM HOME DEPOT IF THEY USE SPIRIT DELIVERIES. Worst service I have ever experienced.
UPDATE: They said they can deliver tomorrow between 1 and 5; so I will have to pay someone for another 4-5 hours of time as well as having spent over an hour dealing with the situation and all because one driver can't go to the correct house (or just doesn't feel like working after 6?).
CASSELBERRY, FLORIDA -- Two men came on Oct 30th to delivery my new fridge from Home Depot. They immediately said they could not bring it in due to the width of the doorways and that I needed to order a smaller unit. I returned to Home Depot to inquire and was told they reported that I refused delivery. Home Depot got on the phone with them and they refused to remove my old one, saying it was built-in, which it was not. I ended up having to pay $250 for a junk dealer to haul it away, a service Home Depot promises in their contract.
They contacted the main delivery company, Ralph's, to confirm re-delivery and that they would remove the fridge doors in order to get it in the house, which they successfully did. I feel Spirit is a dishonorable company that does not honor its commitments and employs lazy, incompetent moving men. Home Depot needs to get rid of them!
DELAWARE COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA -- It's unfortunate that "Spirit Delivery" seems to be having consistency issues with regards to its professionalism. We did not have a negative experience with "Spirit Delivery" thank the blessed MOST HIGH LIVING GOD! On the contrary, we contacted Spirit to thank them for sending "Pedro" and "Joelle" to deliver our appliances. They both were very professional! They took their time in being safe with handling our stove and dishwasher and then "Pedro" explained to us about the special points with stove and the regulations that needed to be observed with regard to our range in particular.
He even demonstrated to us how to replace the door to our range which we thought would be best to remove to make getting it into the house easier. From the professionalism of the courtesy reminder and confirmation call the day before to their very professional delivery associates "Pedro and Joelle!" We are very blessed that the whole delivery process went well. Delivery date was on Saturday August 11th, 2018.
FRANKLIN, MASSACHUSETTS -- Had three separate delivery dates confirmed for my refrigerator delivery. It did not arrive on any of these dates! First time it did not fit on the truck, second time the truck broke down, third time the truck broke down. Get a new truck! Trying to get in touch with this company is impossible and you are left on hold hell until you can't take it anymore and hang up (leaving a message is useless). This process took almost a week and Home Depot was not much help or I would have received the delivery on the second delivery date. Finally on the fourth delivery date it actually showed up. Never again will I purchase an appliance from Home Depot!
ROSWELL, GEORGIA -- We had a delivery scheduled for three appliances we purchased at Home Depot between 2 and 6 PM. When we did not receive the 30 minute call ahead of the delivery by 6 PM I called Home Depot who could not reach them for nearly an hour and were finally told they were on their way and would reach in 30 minutes, but 7:30.
At 7:45 Spirit called to say they were not coming because they were having truck issues. When I asked what kind of issues and if the truck broke down she simply said, "Just truck issues" and have to re-schedule but not sure when (this is July 3rd and obviously they are not going to deliver on the 4th). I said this was not acceptable and needed another truck out, she said, "No. Everyone else is gone." and slammed the phone down. I'm not sure what this had to do with the truck issue, but this as far as I'm concerned is as much a Home Depot issue as Spirit. Spirit lied, was unprofessional and rude, therefore so is Home Depot.
NEW YORK -- Tried to get delivery for two days... First time truck broke down... Second time they pulled in driveway LATE without the appliance on truck. Can't wait to see what happens next time... Home Depot does not give a rat's ** about this and neither does the delivery company as you can see from the reviews.
FRANKLIN, MASSACHUSETTS -- I recently bought a new washer and dryer from the Home Depot, as my washer had completely died. My delivery was scheduled for a Friday, with a delivery window of 3:15 to 7:15. The company's policy is to call the afternoon or early evening the day before to give customers their estimated time frame.
The truck got to my house around 7, and I asked the delivery driver to meet me in the back of my condo at the bulkhead. In the 30 or so seconds it took me to get from my front door, through the basement, and out the bulkhead, I heard raised voices. When I popped my head out, I heard the delivery driver saying “None of your ** business who I am!” and “** you!” to my neighbor. I missed whatever interchange happened between my neighbor and the delivery person, but I can't imagine any scenario that would cause a professional to devolve into such profanity within 30 seconds.
I intervened, and told the delivery person that I am 7 months pregnant, and my washer has been dead for a week, and that I just wanted the appliances to be delivered stress-free. The delivery person informed me that “No, you're not getting your appliances now, and it's all HIS fault” (pointing to my neighbor). He then got in the truck, and drove off, my washer and dryer still on the back of the truck.
I then found out, after being on hold and on the phone for the remainder of my Friday night and most of Saturday morning, that the delivery company, Spirit, is a 3rd party contractor for Home Depot. I talked to several Spirit employees that night, and they offered no apology. They said the best they could do was to reschedule for the following Tuesday. I explained that I already had to take time out of work for the first botched delivery, and that I couldn't take another day off. They said that there was no other option.
Because I couldn't take another day off from work, my father offered to take the day off from his job on Tuesday to wait for the truck. This time, the window was supposed to be 7:15-11:15 am. After my shift ended at 1, I called my father to see how the delivery had gone. He said they never showed up. Spirit hadn't called me or tried to reach out in any other way. I called, of course, and sat on hold for 40 minutes before someone answered. When the person answered, they told me that my “appliances had never made it on the truck in the morning”. Though they knew all about this, they never bothered to even call. They said they would have to reschedule...again.
Meanwhile, I am also dealing with Home Depot. They have been much more receptive and helpful, but the end result is that I now have to take another day off from work on Friday to wait for a delivery that may or may not come, from a delivery service that has already proven itself to be sub-par in terms of professionalism, punctuality, organization, and customer service.
Since last Friday, I've spent hours on the phone with different customer service reps at both The Home Depot and at Spirit Delivery. Spirit has a 1-800 number, but callers are immediately put on hold. I've been told that I'd get a call back from certain managers, and of course, I've not gotten return calls.
They've told me that they have no voicemail or email service, so I can't leave VM for or send email to any of the supervisors or reps I've talked to. Which means that every time I call, I have to repeat the same information over and over again. This is one of the most frustrating experiences I've ever had. If you're considering buying an appliance from The Home Depot, find out if the delivery company is Spirit. If it is, steer clear and buy your appliances elsewhere.
MACON, GEORGIA -- The first experience with this company resulted in them refusing to install a dishwasher and then claiming they were going to leave with my fully paid for dishwasher since they didn't install it. I called the Sheriff and let them know that if these guys drove off with my washer I wanted them stopped arrested and charged with stealing property.
At the same time called Home Depot to inform them what these guys were up to and how I didn't appreciate the foul language used when I told them they were not leaving with my dishwasher, because "surprise guys, I'm darn near fluent in Spanish and your mouths should be washed out with soap. Hope you don't kiss your mothers with those mouths." Ended up having a Home Depot employee from a local store being sent to my home who installed the dishwasher without problem in an hour, by himself.
Decided to not blame Home Depot for the debacle, especially since they made it right and compensated with a gift card. So this time ordered an over the range microwave. Took the old one down, removed old mounting plate and made sure area was clear since delivery was to take place Saturday September 10th between 1:45 and 5:45 p.m. At roughly 2:30 Spirit Delivery office calls saying the driver will be delayed an hour or two because the radiator went out on his truck. I say okay, even though I'm thinking what delivery company doesn't have a backup truck.
An hour later I get a call saying they are having a hard time getting the truck fixed so there will be no delivery today. Wait, what? Can we deliver it Monday? No! The point of the Saturday delivery is because I have to work! I can get home from work before 6:00! "Well the best we can do is give you a window of 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and put a note on there asking the driver to not show up until after 6:00 p.m."
"I'm sorry are you telling me that because you, a delivery company, failed to maintain your delivery truck properly, failed to have a backup truck available, and didn't have some sort of logistical plan in place, I'm supposed to get docked pay at my job???" Sigh, I've been waiting for this for a week now, so fine. Also spoke with Home Depot who also said "we will make sure they deliver it Monday after 6:00."
What do I get, a phone call at 1:30 p.m. today saying "we're on our way to your house." "Uh no you're not!" Delivery is supposed to be between 4 and 8 and a note is on there to wait until 6 or later! They didn't tell me that. Not my problem, "so at what time will you be bringing my over the range microwave back to my house today?" "We won't be coming back, we'll be on other side of town."
I call Home Depot completely angry. Home Depot says, they can deliver it again this Saturday. You know what, cancel the order. I'm done with Home Depot. Purchased via Best Buy and the local guys will bring it tomorrow. Done with Home Depot and will never use them for any appliance purchase again! If they want my business again they will find a better company than Spirit Delivery. Clearly that Spirit died a long time ago!
BUFFALO, NEW YORK -- Horrible Experience with Spirit Delivery. Purchased a refrigerator from Penney's. Delivery set for Saturday between 9am-1:30pm. Received a call at 10:00 stating the truck with our appliance slipped off of the road (lie #1), so they would not be delivering it that day, hopefully the next day. Called Penney's and spoke to salesman. He gave us a different reason for cancellation. He said deliveries for that day were canceled because of inclement weather (lie #2). We corrected him and explained that trucks were out, & only our truck was affected. We asked it there was any way to reload and transport. He said he would call.
He called us and stated no way to deliver, but it would be delivered the next day. We could not wait at home Sunday afternoon, so we asked if it could be delivered early that (Sunday) morning. Delivery company said yes, we would be the first on the list. SUUURRREEE!!!
Needless to say, we waited all morning for a phone call and finally had to leave at 1:30pm. We decided to cancel the order the next day. We were about 25 miles away from home that afternoon at 5:00pm when we got a call from them stating they were at our house. Gave no reason for not calling or for surprising us at 5:30pm on a Sunday afternoon, BUT THAT THEY WOULD BE BACK in 20-30 minutes.
We had to practically fly home to meet the ** truck. Then, you will never guess, after racing home, they did not arrive for another 30 minutes (1 hour total). When we asked the deliverers what happened to the truck yesterday, he said one of the CREW DID NOT SHOW UP THAT DAY. When we buy a new appliance the first thing I will ask is WHO DELIVERS THEIR PRODUCTS. If it is Spirit, I will not buy from that store. I will go somewhere else.
ATLANT GA -- My husband and I purchased a full set of appliances from Home Depot. They were delivered to our home and installed on August 29, 2017. Upon installing the dishwasher our countertops were chipped. We immediately contacted our local Home Depot on Holcomb Bridge in Roswell GA and spoke to Frank in the appliance department. A claim was filed with Spirit Delivery. We never heard anything from Spirit Delivery for several weeks. We then contacted Home Depot again. Apparently Spirit Delivery lost the claim and the original photographs of the damage sent to Home Depot.
Included in this original delivery on 8/29/2017 a new refrigerator was also installed by Spirit Delivery. The delivery team damaged the door when unloading in the front yard. It was installed and a new refrigerator was ordered. When the replacement refrigerator was delivered it was easier to replace the door rather than bring the entire refrigerator into the house. This delivery went fine. Then we started getting calls from Spirit Delivery to pick up AND deliver another refrigerator. We have also had three different delivery services show up to our front door and we have received no less than 15 calls from Spirit Delivery to either deliver or pick up a refrigerator.
We have called back numerous times but no one ever answers the phone. Now we just ignore their calls because it's a waste of our time. No one ever answers the phone in ANY department at Spirit delivery. In the meantime nothing has been done to remedy and our chipped countertops. We have been in touch with the insurance company for Spirit Delivery. They are horrible as Spirit Delivery themselves. No one returns my calls, or responds to our insurance claim. I have even tried to contact the corporate offices.
If you are smart you will not purchase ANY appliances from Home Depot or ANY store that uses Spirit delivery. This project has been the biggest headache and absorbed more time than any other project we have ever completed in our home. Spirit Delivery and Home Depot… BUYER BEWARE!!! DO NOT USE THESE COMPANIES!
