"Today received my Maximus desk. Great quality! It was worth the wait. When I ordered I underestimated the 4-6 weeks delivery time, in fact I started thinking to the worst, but after calling the customer center have been reassured that the delivery was going to happen by the 6th week as the product was made in germany. I would definitely order again from Haus direct in the future."

"Just received our Frank Olson units and very happy with them. Had read some negative reviews about delivery times and was nearly put off. I phoned customer services and spoke to Tom who assured me I would have my Units within 3 or 4 days. They arrived next morning before 10.am Very impressed"

"I caused Haus a problem by having to change my delivery address before my office desk was dispatched. I informed customercare of my new address which they passed on to their delivery people. I phoned ITD to arrange a suitable delivery date and confirmed the delivery address. My office desk arrived yesterday. Both Haus and ITD did a splendid job. Haus customercare were very helpful responding well to emails and telephone."

"Ordered a sofa from Haus several weeks ago. They have taken my money but have not heard a thing from them since the confirmation email stating my purchase. Have tried to call but can’t get through and have emailed several times but no reply at all. What poor service. Still have no idea when my sofa will come or what is happening."

Thank you for getting in touch Wendy. We apologise for our delay in replying to your email and also for any inconvenience in getting through to us during our busy periods this week. We understand our team have been in touch since and have notified you of our delivery timeframe as advertised on our website against the item you have purchased.

Please note if you cannot reach us on the telephone number provided in your email confirmation during busy periods we do also display two alternative numbers on our website to reach us on.

Your order has been released and awaiting collection at present which is why your payment has been taken to allow us to proceed with its dispatch, we state on our website against this item 'usual' delivery can take around 5-15 working days for delivery, we are sorry if you did not see this.

Yesterday was the 10th working day since placing your order, unless your order is expected to be delayed you will not receive any communication other than your delivery booking confirmation from our transport partners, please be rest assured if any delay is to be experienced we will notify you.

At present this is showing as on schedule for completion in this timeframe. Unfortunately as the despatch centre is closed over the weekend we cannot obtain a live status check on your delivery date until Monday as we have advised already. We hope this update helps provide some peace of mind and we thank you for shopping with us.

"Excellent product, courier driver could have been a little more happier as this would have made me give you 5*, a smile does not cost anything, maybe this is my age showing. All in all great product from last weeks purchase, our console table is now built and the wife loves it so thats a result for me! :-) Great site with a great offering! Sure to visit again."

"Thank you HAUS. Ordered an oxford corner desk and this item arrived as expected, perfect product at a perfect price, great value for money. We will be back! Only advise would be it would have been great have a timed delivery slot, we did try to obtain this but we were given a 4 hour window on the day, this would be my only grip. I can see you have a few comments from customers being negative but i have to say we did not experience any issues and this day and age people need to have more confidence, if your not happy with the service ask for a refund, always quick to leave negative feedback but how often do you really leave positive feedback?? Thanks again HAUS."

"I made 3 orders. One on the 31/08/18 and two on the 02/09/18. Still no delivery. Contacting HAUS is almost impossible and having contacted one of the MANUFACTURERs directly they stated that they only got the order from HAUS on the 13/09/18. !0 days after I placed the order and HAUS took my money. Ringing HAUS is pointless as you will never get through. Email is hit and miss. HAUS took full payment for all items in my order totalling £1819.00 on the 03/09/18. This is not a small amount and as others have said, they should not take this until the items are dispatched. I have since found out that they did not even place the order with the manufacturer until the 13/09/18. I have had an email from HAUS with a story about checking one of the items and that they are trying to consolidate the delivery into one delivery. HOWEVER, again after contacting one of the manufacturers directly (Listed under each product) they state that they deliver directly and not via HAUS. So are HAUS lying? So this leads me to believe that HAUS have serious processing and customer services issues after 1: finding out they do not place orders straight away. 2: The products may show as in stock but they are not and 3: They seem to be telling lies to their customers with made up stories to cover themselves. So, in conclusion, I have no idea what is happening with my order or my £1819.00 and can only hope the items get delivered. Next time, I will approach the manufacturers directly as at least they answer their emails and telephone. TO HAUS: Please contact me to sort this out ASAP."

Thank you for getting in touch Mr Leeson. We are very sorry to learn about your negative experience to date concerning communication with our team.

As explained today on the telephone by our business manager, during brand events our telephone lines can experience a high volume of calls and therefore our advisors are unable to answer immediately, this in essence can take some time in answering calls, we are actively improving our processes and company infrastructure to cope with the growth of our operation, and are aware we can do better, your feedback is valued and will certainly help our management team. Sorry in the meantime that we have not responded quick enough.

Alternatively to the telephone service we have introduced a help desk centre
and strongly advise should this happen again to open a ticket through your account if created or create an account using the same email address as your order and we will link this to a ticket and an advisor will call you or email you back. We usually respond within 2-3 working hours or alternatively you can email our team who will look into any concerns or updates you request within 24 working hours.

Your order has a time frame associated with it which is a usual indicator to when orders are expected to be completed, we do apologise that this is extending outside of the 15 working day period at present and as you have been made aware by our partnering brand advisors this is something which was updated previously by them on our behalf, we have also noted that this has been provisionally confirmed today with you also and a date we anticipate to be the firm date for delivery given the services are outsourced by our partnering brand on this item (s) also confirming.

Your communication with our partners is also logged and noted in our system as contracted therefore we deem updates channelled on our behalf are satisfactory updates, communication updates activated in this manner are a true reflection of our positive alliance with the brands concerned as they are equally key members of our operation extending the service levels to fulfil our after sales support needs especially if they oversee the logistics at the time, they will usually hold the information you may require, this being said we will always pass this information on to you as and when we receive communication, from time to time booking in confirmations are sent by third party couriers/ partnering services and not by HAUS.

With reference to your payment, please note your order was released from our system and awaiting preparation for dispatch which is why your payment has been taken, as we outsource our delivery services in order to release the goods we hold we have to take your payment commitment to allow for the transportation services to commence and allow for execution of the final stages of the order fulfilment, and with your order being in two locations we are trying to consolidate this to arrange for a dispatch with 1/2 couriers and not three to avoid any inconvenience given this is going to the same postcode, three orders in our system are deemed as three separate transactions especially when ordered on different days.

Brands can collect from us and deliver directly so this is incorrect information you have been given, in this instance we are actually delivering part of your order from the North East warehouse to the warehouse who you have been speaking with directly, this is because this is a separate transaction to that of your first order placed.

If our stock holding is held in various warehouse locations we can access these at any point and do not need to call on items immediately to be allocated if held with us, items are also held with our suppliers which is where you may have been advised of our order date, as we designated stock to be released knowing this was in the normal timeframes to enable preparation for a swifter delivery turn around.

This is simply because if our third party courier is unlikely to deliver this within a reasonable timeframe we can switch the stock allocation from our secondary storage facilities to allow for a quicker turnaround to commence, this is what has happened here, we however have been monitoring your order from day 1 and have certainly not forgotten about you.

To conclude on your assumptions of our services and execution faults we are very sorry if you feel your order has been badly managed, this is not how we expect our customers to feel nor do we gain any satisfaction from unsettling them in anyway, on this occasion your order has been upgraded to be overseen by the manufacturer themselves who can facilitate this service on two of three of your orders quicker and safely given the value of your orders, resulting in avoiding multiple handling of these items.

We hope today's update is a reassuring one and we are pleased you have managed to speak with a member of our team. Please accept our apology for any inconvenience caused and please be rest assured your order is being monitored by our booking team as well as our partnering brand partners. Thank you for your continued patience in the meantime.

"Thank you for swiftly deliverying our order, we did struggle getting through at first but quickly realised you had a telephone issue and we reached out to your website for the updated numbers, your CS team were very helpful. Other than that your driver delivered on a Saturday which was great which suited us better and our order arrived just in time for our party! Thanks again we will be back HAUS."

"Appalling customer service - 9 weeks and counting for a flat pack desk. Numerous attempts at trying to contact HAUS and automated line just hangs up. Taken the money despite website advising only taken when item dispatched. Call customer service line - no answer and call hangs up after 5 minutes waiting."

We are sorry to learn about your experience today Mr Parish.

Monday mornings can occasionally prove challenging at peak times to get through to the team with pre-sales and aftersales engagement following our return from the busy weekend.

Please note whilst we do try our utmost to get back to you as quickly as possible should you ever find yourself trying for 1 hour again please do send us an email or complete a help desk ticket and we will of course call you back rather than having to continuously call.

Our customer care team have hopefully put your mind at ease now by explaining our telephone line issue with you today and have also advised of two alternative numbers which can be obtained from our website.

Please note your order states this is a 6-8 week lead time item and is clearly indicated on the delivery details section on the product page itself directly above the add to cart button, this was also explained last week when you called. Please note today is the 43rd working day so this is within our usual time frames customers experience.

We understand this has now been confirmed with you by the booking team today and we apologise for the telephone issue you have experienced today. Please also refer to our website for any updated numbers in future as the contact number in your email is dropping out of service resulting in the call management system to take it out of the queue, the technical engineers are investigating into at present.

We can also see you made contact last week and successfully spoke with our team, which once again hopefully reassures you that your order is in good hands.

Should you have any further difficulties please do not hesitate in contacting us again. Thank you.

"Ordered a sofa on the 7th of August, order number, 100002191. The haus website said 5 to 15 working days. 15 working days have come and gone, yet not a single word from haus direct. Email has been sent and no response and the money has already been taken from my credit card (not what was indicated on the website). Unless I get an explanation, I will have to contact my credit card company. Will not be purchasing anything from haus direct in the future"

"I ordered a desk on 20/05/18. Haus Direct took payment immediately despite their claim that "your offer to purchase goods from us shall only be deemed to be accepted by us when we dispatch the goods at which payment will be taken". I've called 01388 604 640 numerous times without luck. I've also sent an email and received an automated reply informing me that "you will receive a response within the next 72 working hours" and "due to operational issues beyond our control, your order may be delayed". I didn't receive a response within 72 working hours. I'm not impressed with this company - my advice is to shop elsewhere."

Thank you for your feedback.

We are sorry to learn you are not having a positive experience. Please note as advised in your email today by our customer care team we do not have a contact number for you as you have not left one when placing your order, this item also clearly states 5-10 working days as a guideline and today is the 8th working day, your order has now been booked in for delivery as you have accepted this after we have communicated via email to you having not had a contact number previously.

Please can we also inform you that our telephone number is 01388 602 640 it appears you have been trying the wrong number. We do hope this provides you with peace of mind. Thank you for shopping with us.

"Ordered an item on May 2 for delivery within the UK. Sent 2 emails to the customer services team to inquire about the order in the following weeks. All I have received are automated responses indicating that "they have a high volume of calls and emails and aim to response within 24 hours". I have yet to receive any response as of May 21. I would avoid this company, seems dubious at best, and would try to cancel my order as it is no longer needed given this long time frame."

Please can we ask that you provide your order details to our customer care team and/or create a ticket using the help desk feature in your account, alternatively contact our team by telephone to discuss this matter further on 01388 602 640.

We apologise for any delay in email communication in the meantime, due to our brand event we are experiencing a higher volume of emails than usual at present. With regards to your delivery, some of our products are warehoused in Europe and therefore timescales can vary from item to item, please can we refer you to our 'usual delivery' time frames highlighted on each product page as some items can take longer for completion than others. Thank you.

"Received a hi-fi cabinet, paid £215.00 and 2 of us attempted to put it together. Biggest problem was the screws wouldn’t fit into the metal frame..the pre-drilled holes had not been tapped which meant it was impossible to screw in. For the price I paid , the quality should have been better."
