Worst experience I have ever had!! Lost my order, had to start from scratch, deceptive about fitting arrangements. Cancelled my fitting day and lied to me on the phone saying I had called and cancelled it. Fitting still not finished and spouting about no compensation policy. Total disgrace, do not use this company ever

The Slough store is Carpet wrong! Please use other smaller companies instead! We ordered our vinyl and two months after are yet to get it delivered! They never communicate, you have to keep chasing them over the phone and it’s all the same thing they say everytime. Oh it will be delivered in two weeks, oh you’ll get it in three weeks. The house we just bought is reeling of the old carpet and we thought by now we would have had new ones but no thanks to Carpet right at all! Customer service is non existent once they get your money!! Just excuses upon excuses and more excuses to cover the previous ones! I regret visiting this store for my new home! Very stressful indeed and they just don’t care!

Carpetright are very helpful while you are spending money with them but once your hard earned cash is in their till,they dont want to know you anymore.For years we have been buying our carpets from their Apsley branch and have had no problems and thought them to be very helpful but as soon as you find a fault in one of their products,they really dont want to know about it.After several attempts to speak to the manager over the phone and with him always to 'busy' to return our calls,we had to visit the store to get his attention.He promised faithfully that he would come and inspect the faulty carpet on the following Tuesday and would ring before hand to let us know the time of his arrival.We stayed in all day on Tuesday waiting for the phone to ring.It never did and no needless to say no visit ensued.We thought that being a big company we would get an apologetic call first thing the next morning with an explanation as to why we were let down.No phone call came,so we decided to phone the store,and guess what?Yes,the manager was busy in the back but would contact us shortly.After two hours of waiting,we again phoned the store and was now told that the manager had left the premises!Annoyed by this action we left a stern message with the sales assistant to tell the manager he had one final chance to show that he wasnt as inept as his actions were displaying.We got a call about an hour later,not by the manager i hasten to add,but by a sales asisstant who told us that a carpet fitter would definitely be visiting us on the Friday to put right our problems.Safe to say that again despite us staying in all day,no visit or even a courtesy call to explain the absence of a visit occured.If big businesses are now acting in a manner where their customers are merely a hinderance and should be treated with utter contempt then Carpetright would be proud to receive a five star rating because they make you feel rather unwanted and problematic.As i stated earlier they are quite happy to take your money butyou are nothing but a nuisance if the product they sell you has a fault.Their after service is non existent.

Good carpet, good price, staff in store (Trafford Park) helpful and professional and the fitter (Paul from Trafford Park) was prompt, polite, helpful, tidy and did a first class fit.

Having waited 10 weeks for a carpet we were told would be 6 weeks, the fitters arrived at 7.15pm and were still here at 10.30pm, hammering and banging. I'm sure it wasn't their fault as they had a job to do but I will NEVER use Carpetwrong again.

Terrible - Ordered a carpet in May - we were given a delivery date - in early July the night before we moved all the ornaments, lamps and electricals out of the room as instructed. The following day the carpet fitter arrived to tell us that the carpet was too short and wouldn't be fitted. Then we were told it wouldn't be in stock until September. Now we are told that there still is no stock. They have had our money since May and no carpet and will not offer us compensation. We called the store manager in Reading and although he says his name is Mark he will not give us his surname and the company policy is not to offer compensation. I logged a complaint by email to the customer service number two weeks ago but have not had a reply !. I have forwarded it again today. Nobody cares !

Ordered my carpet from carpetright and was given a fit date. Near the date I hadn't heard from them so I rang only to be told that the carpet wasn't in store yet as they had issues at the manufacturer. This was highly inconvenient as we had moved everything out of the room in readiness. Were they going to tell me if I hadn't rung? I was contacted some weeks later to say the carpet had arrived and picked my fit date. Fitters arrived, fitted the underlay and then rolled out the carpet. I went upstairs to look and the carpet was completely the wrong colour!! It wasn't my order at all and I now have to get the carpet reordered all over again. I told carpetright that I was not happy and that I wanted compensation but they said they don't do that but they might arrange a bit of a discount on future orders. I told them I had numerous other carpets to fit in the house but that Carpetright would be the very last place I would buy another carpet from. When I asked the salesman if he expected me to place another order after this fiasco, he said "well some people do". What can I say except they must be happy to put up with shoddy service and a complete lack of responsibility. Apparently it's not Carpetright's fault and the bags come labelled from the manufacturer but they don't check to ensure they are correct. How do this company retain customers??😬😡

Very misleading website! Recently I ordered two 4’6 double beds from your website. Yesterday the beds arrived but did not include the headboards. Luckily for me I had visited your Chester store prior to delivery as I wanted to see the beds in person. Whilst in store I was assisted by a very helpful member of your staff but unfortunately whilst looking at the beds it dawned on me that I may not have head boards included, as per the pictures on your website and on my confirmation order email which clear as day included a headboard. She checked my order carefully and she told me one bed definitely DID NOT have a head board but the status of the second bed was not clear. I had to call customer services to see if there was a headboard included with the second bed. Both the lady in the store and the gentleman on the phone could not work out if it had a head board with it. Eventually he clarified that it didn’t. The question being that if it took your staff some time to figure this out, how was I meant too? Your website is very misleading. I carefully picked the bed, the size, the number of drawers etc but at no point was it clear that the bed did not come with a headboard nor presented me with an option to choose a head board. If I had not found this out in advance there may also have been a potential problem for your delivery drivers yesterday who may have been faced with an unhappy customer. Both the shop staff and the customer care call handler both told me your website is deliberately misleading. They also told me to write to you as you apparently don’t listen to staff feedback, only the customers. The call handler also told me the only way I would have known about the lack of headboards is by opening the T&Cs. Yes, and fair enough I should have done this and read them carefully but you would think an option to add a headboard would be as clear as the option to add draws or pick the colour of the bed!!! Apparently, according to your social media reply, this option only appears if the headboard is available. After about 45 minutes of faffing with calling the call centre etc to clarify my order and search for the correct headboard I eventually purchased two head boards, one for each bed. Unfortunately one matching headboard was not available, and the staff don’t think it had been available when I ordered initially. This is disappointing given the money I have spent and is not really want I want as I now have a head board that doesn’t match the bed. This came at an additional cost of over £500 an expense I already thought I had covered. However, you also suffer in this as I would have bought the headboards regardless so actually due to the misleading “fault” on your website you are now having to provide me with two rounds of delivery and installation. This is costing you money! I want to write you as you are a big and reputable company. I do not understand why your website would not give an option of adding a headboard?? Ultimately this must be costing you money? I imagine there are many orders being delivered to people who are expecting headboards, which actually are not included. My beds arrived yesterday and they are beautiful…but if they had arrived without headboards, and had I not been aware of this prior to delivery, I would not have been happy. I would also question the number of people who initially expected or wanted headboards who may then take their custom elsewhere to purchase these? I certainly may have done if the lady in the store had not been so helpful and supportive. Furthermore, I will now have to sacrifice another day at work for a second delivery. This could have all been prevented by giving me a simple option to select a head board!! I hope you take this feedback seriously and can look into this matter.

Good Evening Victoria, Thank you for getting in touch and sharing the above. We are aware of your query and do apologise that the sale of your headboard wasn't provided with your bed order. As previously explained, we state that headboard sales are separate in our product information section and we also suggest this in our frequently bought together section. Once again, we are sorry that this was missed and for any inconveniences caused. Best Wishes, Benji

Good Morning Kenny, Thank you for getting in touch and sharing your feedback with us. We're really sorry to hear of your mattress and how this has left you feeling. Unfortunately as the inspection came back with no findings, we were unable to assist further which we do understand is disappointing. We do hope in the future, we are able to restore your faith in us. Best Wishes, Carpetright

I do not recommend Carpetright, very bad service, I needed staircarpet and I chose patterned Axminster £ 100 a metre all but a penny and underlay £12.99 a metre, I paid over £3000 and told to pay up front to order, I did, I was told to buy extra 10 metres because of the pattern so it would match, I did so, but the fitters the manager sent dident know how to lay a patterned carpet, they cut it in my street in the rain, Carpetrights surveyor over estimated the measurements, a whole roll of underlay was left over and taken back to the store which my Mother paid for, nearly 10 metres of excess carpet, Manager sent 3 fitters to uplift the carpet and take back to store 3 weeks ago, After over 2 months a lot of stress and worry telephone calls and emailing everyday I have received my money back today, I can now buy staircarpet from a reputable store who only need a deposit and the rest when carpet fitted, and have my stairlift reinstalled, Im 85 years old and have athritus Im no longer stressed, however anyone who need flooring ect avoid Carpetright, Good luck, PS, Check the small print on invoice, there are hidden charges, get legal insurance.

I will never use this company again. No accountability and appalling customer service. We have spent over eighteen months trying to get our flooring issue resolved after spending a considerable amount of money on what we believed to be quality LVT flooring for our downstairs floors, they have warped out of shape, the planks have separated and the edges have still not been sealed. The fitter refuses to respond to messages, the store are rude and we are very angry. AVOID AT ALL COSTS, your money will be better spent elsewhere, trust me. I would not even award a one star but there is no other option.

One star is way to much , I purchased a carpet for my hall stairs and landing waited 5 weeks was told to have area cleared for. Fitter my old carpet removed the night prior and put out I received a call mid morning the day of fitting to be told a carpet had arrived but was the wrong colour and it would take 6 weeks to receive my original order ( fitter recognized mistake not the store ) I was given two choices have the wrong carpet laid or wait neither was an option I am registered disabled housebound and have mobility issues to descend the stairs is at best precarious this would have been a extremely dangerous as my stairs had gripper rod on back and front giving little room for foot placement I explained this to store manager he could not have cared less the store would do nothing to help you would have thought the colour mistake was my fault Ibasically take the wrong colour or do without was there only response I asked if they would put the cheapest floor covering they had down at least on my stairs answer no I called customer services they were horrendous not sure which was worse eventually I had to make expensive decision and ask the store if I could purchase a cheap carpet myself from them and have it fitted of course they said yes so £200 later carpet and fitting ) I had a carpet down called following Monday to ensure my original carpet had been reordered sales guy couldn’t find any re order at all having shopped with carpetright over 25 years never again I intended to carpet entire house will be looking elsewhere shocked they can treat customers like this but happy to take money

WITHOUT PREJUDICE BUYER BEWARE I purchased a new lounge and hall carpet from Carpet Right on the 04.01.19 , this was fitted by your fitter on the 29.01.19. at the time of fitting I was advised that what transpires to be fault lines in the carpet, would walk out in between 12- 18 months. I left it a considerable time to give the product time to walk out as stated by your fitter. I contacted Carpet Right on the 02.05.21 and Sam Oliver came out and stated that it was a fault in the carpet which would have never walked out however long it was left and that it shouldn't have been fitted. He took photographs of the fault lines and said he would forward them to Head Office for a resolution to the problem . It transpires that Balta of Belgium and Carpet Right have decided that due to the time frame they can't and won't do anything about it, I was made aware of this on Friday the 18th June 2021 ,after my waiting and contacting Carpet Right on tens of occasions in the interim period from the 02.05.2021. I have logged these calls. I would wish to drawer your attention to your IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR ORDER. under the heading FITTING (FLOOR COVERINGS). the third paragraph states " We retain full responsibility for the products". The product was not and is not fit for purpose and never has been , and should not have been fitted. With the absence of a satisfactory resolution to your problem , regarding your product I am left with no option but to seek legal guidance as to the way forward.

Purchased a mattress. Mattress was faulty (within 3 months) reported to Carpetright who had no interest. Emailed customer service who just wanted to ping pong emails. After 9 months admitted liability. Tom in the Peterborough store offered a refund once the replacement mattress arrives (as long as its sealed and not opened). New mattress arrived after a month. (Every Monday would get email your mattress will be with you on Thursday, this went on for four Monday's) it arrived on a Friday. Rang up the store to inform the mattress is here and I will be in to get my refund, as wanted no more messing about and an end do the headache. Tom apparently was on holiday. Karl got back to me saying Tom had not agreed to a refund. I realised they just fibbing me off. I emailed Mr Walsh the managing director of Carpetright (marked Private and Confidential) who has not even bothered replying. Did also message the regional manager (Gary Greaves) who also has not replied. The are in hiding over £400.

I don't recommend it to anyone. £60 for a delivery and they had to take the vinyl back to the warehouse because it did not fit in the lift, after having told me that they would leave it at the door of my house paying the £30 extra. The excuse was that they dont cut it because they are not the ones doing the fitting...so my question was..why did you then ask for the extra £30 delivery to drop it just in my 3rd floor? You sent someone to measured it who saw my lift and everything....still waiting for a solution after refusing going myself to cut it and collect it to Brentford. The manager in the shop told me that for all that vinyl my sitting room must be massive...what a comment! my 2 rooms flat is just 60 square meters, you should have read the papers first, the vinyl is just for sitting room and corridor..I hope they didnt add much more vinyl than I need it and added to my bill! After asking her my money back she told me " They are not going to give your money back" excuse me..they who? I paid you, to the shop...no one else,,so is you who I have to deal with.. Bad communication and a lot of misunderstanding between the Hammersmith shop ( London) and the delivery guys, and a lot of headache for us.. Do some research a go with a better company able to do their job properly and can give the correct information from the beginning.

I ordered AstroTurf with Carpetright. What was delivered was not what I ordered, I paid more for a decent quality but what I got was absolute rubbish and not what I viewed in person in-store. The matter still needs rectifying and I won't stop until it is.

brought a carpet in September 2020 this then get laid a couple of weeks by November the carpet had discoloured to a light grey yet the carpet we brought which was not a cheap one over £500 to not include underlay for a 4x4.5m room is a 2 tone after my initial email complaint with supporting pictures were sent it took Numerous chasing to finally have someone come and inspect 2 weeks ago following up with a manufacturers inspection last week which of course is down to wear and tear, which if a carpet had been down a year or two I would Understand but not 2 Months, carpet right saying not there problem it's manufactures and of course no manufacturer admits liability otherwise they would be out of business!! I have shopped with carpet right for 25 years living in Bracknell moved in to 6 homes spending thousands of pounds in there and never had any issues with carpets prior to this yet clearly being a loyal customer to them for so Many years they do not feel the need to replace a carpet they have sold to me that is not what it is sold as. Thank god Tapi carpet opened 4 units down they will now be receiving my custom and I hope they treat there customers better. Carpet right you should be appalled with the way you treat your customers no wonder as a company you are sinking !!!
