After ordering an Auqalisa shower kit and Expelair Fan at the beginning of June, I got repeated e-mails pushing delivery of the Shower kit back and back. The latest e-mail pushed delivery back to July, with no guarantee I would get it then.

Do not buy anything from Plumbworld. They delievered my order with missing bits. I emailed them. no response. I managed to speak to someone who sorted it. They then generated an order for the misisng pieces even though they had refunded them. I emailed them again - got the worst response ever - They accused me of lying saying I hadn't spoken to anyone even though I had a refund number. I am on the verge of just accepting the item and selling it on Ebay. Tel No is 01386768498 ext 521

Tried to order a Kit-Mastic Epoxy Resin Kit after being directed from another website which gave a price of £6.94 inc P+P. After going through the rigmarole of inputting all the necessary details it ended up with a price of £9.94. For obvious reasons I declined to confirm my order...........

My purchase if straight forward with no need to contact the provider excellent. But that I am afraid is where it ended for me. I in error, still not quiet sure how, but nevertheless I ordered or received the incorrect shower screen. I wanted a plain sail shape screen & an extended shower screen arrived with towel rail. So I sent on line & the on line talk to the company customer service was not working. There was no telephone number to call! So my only option was to wait for the company to cone back to me. 24hrs later no contact, so I sent an email, only to realise if you add to your correspondence your enquiry goes to the bottom of the que? Why, I can only assume they don't want customers to chase them. Still nothing, I called the sales line & not only could they not help or speak to customer services, they were in a separate building & could only liaise by email too!! I finally received contact over 48 hrs after my initial contact. By email! They gave me a return date on a day I was not available so had to send them another email! 9 days after my Oder was delivered they collected it. Yesterday 15 days after my request to return the goods & 4 working days after re collection I received confirmation that I would receive a refund (it didn't state how much) & it will take another 5 days to hit my account. In addition the company were not willing to do an exchange! I had to buy the item again & pay separately. Not a pleasant customer experience, I won't be looking to use then again cheapest or not their after Service is shocking, it may suit them but customer centric it most definitely is not.

Received duplicate items in error, somehow, and charged for them. Plumbworld argued that I could only send goods back providing I paid for shipping and claimed it was my fault. Appalling customer service response and attitude. I will not purchase from this companmy again.

I ordered a product Three weeks ago that they said they had in stock. Still not received despite many assurances they have the product. They are either lying or totally incompetent. I feel it is probably a combination of the two. DO NOT BUY FROM THEM:

Too expensive on postage. For a small lightweight item postage of £4.97, plus VAT making a total of £5.83. The actual postage used was £1.10, no VAT. An Email for an explanation sent the 29th of October has not been replied to. As a tradesman this is unacceptable profiteering. I would not use them and have related this to my associates in the trade.

I ordered several items,I wasn't given a delivery time,neither could I get one. My bath was damaged in 3 places,the pop waste didn't work. The customer service is appalling you cannot phone,you have to email and no one helps. My refund has still not be paid after 10 days and they now tell me they won't pay my delivery costs even though it says they will on their website. I strongly recommend you don't use this company.

I wont shop here again. The staff are great and the whole process is fine BUT the returns policy is very restrictive. I needed to send things back and they make it very hard for you to do this and you are not sure after going through the expense that they will give you your money back. In my instance I wanted to exchange goods as they were not compatable. Sure I should have known this befiore buying, but its the real world and people dont always know if things will fit or be compatible with a heating system etc . Anyway I wanted to return goods to the value of £500 and replace them with goods to the value of £670, and thought that when they drop off the new goods I could just give my unwnated goods back. This was not the case. I had to send them back at my expense £170 and hope that they would accept them back. This was not a chance I was willing to take, so instead I am selling them on ebay, and have gone elsewhere - to someone with a better returns policy. So no I wont buy from plumbworld again.

I ordered the goods in July and after paying they e-mailed me to inform me the goods would not be available until mid Sept. They should never have processed the order with this delay. I had to cancel and then find an alternative product. They also said that if I had ordered through e-bay I wouldn't be able to cancel which is appalling given th delay in delivery. I would not order through e-bay with them for this reason.

The ordering part was fine. Good communications etc. The delivery experience was extremely poor... Business post online tracking just says whether it is booked into warehouse or van, not expected delivery time etc. Next day service failed. Promised redelivery by 12 the following day failed. Had to make repeated caalls to depot to get special arrangements made. Customer-facing personnel at depot operations did not respond well. Summary: Overall Experience VERY poor. How many people does an unhappy customer tell? well I'll be telling quite a few about Plumbworld's courrier Business Post. So different to my experience with Screwfix who will get my business back now!!!! The few pounds cheaper are not worth the hassle.

Rang your customer services, got a man who gave us wrong information so received wrong order. Tried to send order back and it has been an absolute nightmare as no one will take it as it is too big, or they can't take it unless we have an account with them. I don't see why we need an account for the return of one item. I am fed up of having conversations with machines only to be fobbed off by email. I have tried to contact you but you have no lines to your customer services. I have mislaid the initial phone number . Perhaps when you have a member of staff who can actually spare five minutes to sort this mess out. I have spent the past three days trying to find a courier to take the damned thing back to you but as I said they cannot take it. One even suggested carrying the thing to the. post office

Three months ago I phoned Plumbworld twice regarding ordering a lilac glitter toilet seat as shown on their web site. Plumbworld said it was no longer available and would not be issued again. Two weeks ago I spotted it again advertised on the net. I then placed my order which was subsequently accepted. I then recieved an email saying the company expected a delivery of the seat the following day. The following day I recieved an email stating I had cancelled my order which I had not done, Plumbworld themselves had done so. I then emailed Plumbworld and stated I still wanted the seat. Plumbworld then emailed me and said it was no longer available and suggested a see through turquoise seat as an alternative which I declined as being completely unsuitable to match colour scheme etc. On the whole I would rate my shopping experience with Plumbworld as ABYSMALY DISAPOINTING,in fact a totally ill prepared and inadequate shopping source! Not even a second rate service. I will not reccomend anyone, neither friends , customers nor clients to have dealings with Plumbworld, bearing in mind I work for a company myself that deals with the bathroom trade Nation wide!

When I placed the order I was given a delivery time of three to five days, the order did not arrive for 25 days which was whilst we were away on holiday. The order was incorrect and incomplete. Several items were missing from our order and several parts were sent that were not ordered. The Duo steam cabin was advertised as a quality product, we are still not able to use it. When it arrived lots of parts were missing, when it was erceted lots of parts did not fit together. We have had the engineer out from Sani Nova who can not fit it together either. The engineer has had to take pieces away twice now and return with more and more replacement bits as the steam cabin can not be assembled as described in the instructions. The communication from Sani Nova is very poor they do not show up when they say they will and we have been left to pursue the where abouts of the engineer when he has not shown up. He is due back again next week - after again not showing up this week. We wait to see if he arrives and more to the point if this "quality item" will actually fit together as described. I would hate to think of the quality of a "non quality product". Please pass on my comments to Plumb world, they are more than welcome to contact me.

stressful. ordered two park lane showers, were not the same product as advertised on the internet. Plumbworld tried to rectify problem (badly)by sending same product breaching trade descriptions act. Have one shower as advertised and still trying to get other shower changed to the shower i purchased as advertised. will purchase from bathroom showroom in future as what you see is what you get.

I had no instructions and email 4 times to various people at Plumbworld to email them urgently to me as the taps had an extra piece on them that needed fitting and we didn't know if it went on the cold or hot tap. Nobody has bothered to reply and as you don't supply a phone number we had to take them to a local plumbers merchants to ask for there advise. Customer service is the worst I have ever dealt with!

I was disappointed with the waiting time for the original order, even more disappointed when it eventually arrived and was damaged, and yet more disappointed on having to wait until at least July 22nd before having the damaged item picked up a new and hopefully undamaged item re-delivered.

The Plumbworld website was excellent but everything else was extremely dissapointing. The order took over 3 weeks to arrive. When it did arrive it was incomplete and the quality of two of the items that did arrive was poor. With no phone number to ring with queries it was difficult to resolve the problems and I am still owed money for an item that never arrived. I will not use plumbworld again unless they get a phone line for contact with their customer services. If this means increasing their prices to accomodate the extra cost then it would be a price worth paying.

I find it unacceptable that firstly the items that are out of stock and continuously keep getting delayed, were not shown as out of stock when we ordered them. We are currently having building work undertaken at the moment and so need these goods asap for fitting by the builders. As such we would not of ordered products that were out of stock. UNACCEPTABLE.

having successfully bought a shower unit we decided to buy a bathroom suite. after a subtantial wait for goods which we were not warned about at the time of purchase, the order came incomplete. after contacting the company immediately, 2 weeks ago, we have had no inication of when we will recieve the complete order. this is costing us time and money and we face the very real possibilty of spending christmas without a bathroom. in addition all communication has stopped and which is incredibly frustrating. a totally unsatisfactory service!

Rubbish. The product was shown as available in the on-line catalogue. I ordered it, and the next day it was shown as 'cancelled by customer'. I received an email saying it was not available, and when I asked for a suggestion for a similar item that was in stock, I was told to let them know what I wanted and they would tell me if it was in stock. I was not going to go through the catalogue ordering items only for them not to be in stock.

I have never experienced such an incompetent service. They said the goods were in stock, then out of stock, then they would be in stock in a week, then six weeks, then they were in stock again, then only some of my order was in stock! Despite several attepts to speak to somebody I failed. My account was debited five days after my order was cancelled. (which was apperently due to cancelling my order - which was out of stock - after it was sent for despatch!)

My goods were received eight days from order, the bath was the wrong handing and I informed them via email within 15 minutes of delivery as there is no customer services telephone number. I have received no contact from customer services for 36 hours apart from automated messages. The online tracking feature on their website stated that my order had been delivered to an address in Staffordshire, I live in Surrey. The service to date has been woeful, Avoid.

Ordered items. Was told some items were out of stock. Changed some of my order for in stock items, but instructed plumbworld to only despatch when my all items apart from one were back in stock. Received email stating all items were in stock and they had started packing to give to courier. Recevied email next day stating two items were out of stock. Made plumbworld aware of my original email that I did not want multiple deliveries because I work and someone is required to sign and inspect goods on delivery. Was told 06/12/06 it was too late to stop the order leaving warehouse and the courier now has my order and would contact me for asuitable time. NO CONTACT HAS BEEN MADE as of 10/12/06.

placed an order for a complete bathroom suite including shower.when the delivery arrived there was no bath or toilet and i was told that the vanity unit had been damaged at the warehouse. im still not sure how they picked this orderand didnt realise that the bath and toilet were missing. the replacements were sent in good time but wen i checked the vanity unit was damaged and the legs for the bath were missing. i contacted plumbworld but this is not easy as it can only be done via email and takes several days to get a reply. i was told that the bath didnt come with legs but when i checked on the website it shows that it comes with legs. i did save some money by using plumbworld but it was not worth the hassle and delays i had to go through and i will not be using them again
