website offers choice of sizes of fence post. I opted for 1200x75x75 priced at £4. They only had 1800 & 2400 so I asked about cutting a 2400 in half. No prob, they cut it for me and handed me the two 1200 posts. I said I only need one and they said "you might aswell take them cos you're paying for a 2400, you pay for the length you picked up'. And it cost me £10. Two x £4 was £8 when I went to school. Had to have post to finish job. Bit sad when you leave local store thinking best buy off internet, less chance of being conned. It would have been cheaper to buy a 1800 but I thought leaving them with a 600 was stupid. Der, I've got my right finger stuck in my left ear. Help

Quick delivery with good quality fencing which has lasted over the past couple of years too. Weathering well!

I had a number of small pieces of woodi needed cutting. They're was one man in the queue behind me. The cutter days he'd do them later that day as he needed to serve everyone what first and my job would take a while. I told him there's was one man behind me and that he could go first then he could do mine. He refused staying that other customers might come along and want theirs done. He said he would ring me later that day when he managed to get mine done after everyone else. I told him not to bother and I'd take my customer else where. They've lost me as a customer.

1 tin of paint arrived instead of the 10 I had ordered, the problem was that my e nails were then ignored for weeks by customer services, I was left in a predicament. Fortunately I had pain by PayPal. I would Defo avoid this company whose motto clearly means nothing!

Shopped in Southshields store yesterday and was charged £36 for a sheet of 9mms plywood they did cut it for me however it has always been 50 pence for first cut and rest no charge.This cannot be right people go to Maxwell's because they have a cutting service puts them ahead of dog stores in this respect.Are Maxwell's jumping on virus bandwagon I think board was only £15 or am I mistaken.On top of this only 3 out of 6 cuts were correct.

Paint ordered on 18th March and payment taken same day. No sign of paint or any indication as to when it might arrive. No delivery or DHL reference to follow up. Disgusted with this dreadful attitude which I am now referring to Trading Standards. Covid19 is no excuse for fraud or mismanagement of customers.

Hello, i am not usually one to complain but i feel i must say something about the abismal treatment i recieved today ( sunday 26/4) at your Birtley Branch. i rang yesterday ( 25/4) enquiring about loft boards, i was informed that ther were in stock but the shop was closing soon and would be open at 10am on Sunday, i was also told it would be best to turn up at 09.30 to get ahead of the queue. so this morning i turned up at 09.30 and was pleased to see i was the only one there so first in the queue. The main gate was locked so i parked outside ready for it to open. at 10.00 i rand the store to ask if someone could open the gate as there were n ow about 30 cars waiting to be in. at 10.07 someone came and opened the gate only to find there were already about 25 people outside the shop who had left their cars and walked in! so from queuing at 09.30 i finally actually got into the shop, after having to join the end of the queue at around 10,30. i know these are difficult times but if i was told to queue from 09.30 the least they could have done is open the gates then to let the cars in. when i copmpained at the shop i was told, sorry nothing we can do about it!! great customer service....NOT!

Same experience as others here, placed order a month ago, have had half the items ordered, have not heard anything about the rest of my order. Can't get in touch with anybody, just absolutely awful customer experience and service

Despite all the problems caused by the coronavirus pandemic and the resultant lockdown, Maxwells delivered my order. I am very impressed, thank you Maxwells, will not hesitate to use you again when required.

Have given 1 star because couldn’t give zero! Ordered on 24th March. Some of the order arrived yesterday. Tin of gloss paint was so battered, old and rusty that it must have been dragged out of some dark, forgotten corner somewhere. Two tins of paint and filler are a ‘no show’ with no explanation as to why. No one answering the phone and no response to my emails. Money, of course, was taken in March! We all know times are difficult but don’t take people’s money if you can’t complete the service; that’s just dishonest.
