Chris in customer service

"Had a pretty terrible experience (mostly with the shipping aspect of our order and Fed ex) We had taken days off to a comodate delivery- apparently fed ex doesn’t call or buzz you when they arrive, they shout your name in the lobby and if your not sitting there they call that an attempt to deliver. So after three days of this we finally waited in lobby and got our delivery. Get the extremely heavy box upstairs, threw out back in the process only to open the box and find it broken in several pieces!

Called Wayfair and spoke with Chris. He was so professional, sympathetic and helpful from the beginning. He went way above and beyond and rectified a terrible experience. This man was also very patient with my less than pleasant boyfriend. He was able to please both of us, got us a better bed frame for what we paid and made the experience in terms of service quite wonderful. Chris truly was a gem! Wayfair I hope recognizes him for his great service, I would hire that man any day!

Chris, I hope you see this, or win employee of the month or something! But you made me a Wayfair customer for life!

Great company, and stand behind their service and product. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome of a rather terrible beggining.

Thanks again to Chris working Oct 3 around 630!

Delayed

"Ordered was delayed, I was told the day before after making arrangements for delivery and I had a house warming planned so I definitely needed my furniture.. They responded quickly to my emails but what good is that if I'm getting the same answer which is basically, they're not sure when it will be here.. Then if I get a refund I still can't use that money to buy new furniture so my plans can go accordingly.. This was my first and last experience with wayfair.."

Horendous experience. We waited for 3 weeks, Wayfair is unable to deliver an order we placed while it is stuck at their shipper for 2 weeks

"Summary:

Uses unreliable delivery service in the Phoenix, AZ area. Cannot get the order delivered the last 15 miles for the last 3 weeks. Wayfair just tells us to wait another 2-3 weeks. The worst online shopping experience we ever had.

Details:
Ordered a vanity top on 8/11/18. Wayfair shipped it 3 days later using freight service. It arrives at their chosen delivery service on 8/17/18. For few days we don't hear from the delivery service, so we call Wayfair to schedule. The delivery is scheduled for 8/22/18 between 11 and 3. I took time off from work and waiting at home for the delivery. At 4pm, no one arrives or calls us. After reaching the delivery service, they told us sorry, could not find your package, we don't know where it is.

For the next two weeks, Wayfair "was looking" into this and then they just tell us to "wait couple of weeks to see if the delivery service will deliver it". WTH

My advise, order from Amazon and you'll get your stuff reliably and quickly. Stay away from Waifair, we will!

Outstanding customer service

"Any time I’ve had an issue with a product I’ve ordered off of wayfair they literally refund me right away and tell me to “dispose” of the item- a lot of times it’s just a minor defect so I’ve fixed it but still gotten a full refund and got to keep the items which is unheard of. Most of their products are good and anything that isn’t up to par they’ve practically given me. "

Excellent customer service

"The reason Wayfair gets 5 stars is because of its employees. I called as a disgruntled customer as my order was not delivered completely and one of the chairs had defective floor protectors that scratched up our floors. I was assisted by a young lady called Tasha who was professional, courteous, polite and extremely helpful. After carefully documenting the details, she transfered me to Sara M, who was just as kind and patient as her. Both of these ladies were so thorough and cordial while doing their jobs that it made the return and refund both simple and fair. Sara made sure we received a full refund and sent us a check for whatever was extra for the cost of repairs. She personally followed up with us at every stage of the process to ensure it went smoothly right up to the processing of the refund and delivery of the check. From now on we are only buying furniture from Wayfair and telling all our friends and family to do the same. This company is successful because it has people like Sara and Tasha working for it. As long as it keeps hiring employees like them, it will always remain head and shoulders above the competition. You can buy from them with confidence because you know that if there is a problem - they will not only fix it but make up for it. Best customer service ever. "

Never received my item after waiting for 2 months

"I ordered a couch mid June and was told it would be in the second week of July. I paid extra for in home setup and disposal of cardboard. When I had not heard I called to see where it was and was told it would be there by the end of the week. 5 days later and still no contact. This continued for the next three weeks, where I phoned no less than 10 times to see where it was. It seemed nobody would give me straight answer. The first week of August I received a voicemail from the case manager saying my couch was “in the warehouse ready to be picked up” by me. I then received an email from Wayfair asking to rate my delivery service. When I called Wayfair, they insisted the couch had been delivered and were shocked when I told them I did not have it, and no one had even so much as contacted me for delivery. After much hounding of the case manager she finally told that the couch had been logged as “lost” in their system. She then told me she would talk to her manager to see if I could get a 50$ credit. Throughout the entire experience no one had contacted me even once at any time. I cancelled the order and bought a new couch somewhere else. I will absolutely never be ordering from Wayfair again.
My advice to you: skip Wayfair, and order from somewhere that actually cares about their clientele.

They do NOT stand by their merchandise.

"I bought six kitchen chairs that were NOT cheap. I had the chairs 1 1/2 years and one is disintegrating. I called the company to ask what could be done. They said I didn't take an extended warranty on the furniture. I did not KNOW there was an extended warranty as I ALWAYS take one. Now I have one chair that was obviously defective and they won't help me.

Sure, they referred me to Horizon Furniture which ALSO told me there was nothing they could do. DO NOT BUY ANYTHING from this company OR Horizon furniture. They obviously do NOT stand by their products. BTW....my invoice says October 2016. I live in Hawaii so the furniture was delivered far past the invoice date. It was my birthday present.

Great!

"Every time I have made a purchase from Wayfair, I've been satisfied with the shipping and price. I haven't ever had to contact customer service. But so far my experiences have been great! "

Need to replace the replacement

"In finishing a 160 year old farmhouse, we made multiple purchases from Wayfair. We are mostly happy with them except for the master bathroom vanity (we did order a darling dresser for the 1/2 bath that look great as a vanity). The first vanity came with the marble shattered (I sent pics). W. said we would have to wait 6-8 weeks for the replacement. Soooo, we would not be able to use our bath for a month and a half. I was not totally sold on the one we had ordered, so the rep went through about 20 other options that were either not available or would take as long to get as the first one we had ordered. We decided to wait and have not been happy with it since it arrived. The marble has stains that will not come out, the drain hole has corroded and the left faucet is loose. After one year, we would like to return it. With all of the other purchases we have made from Wayfair (home and office) it would not seem like an unreasonable request. We are just plain NOT satisfied with this product."

Horrible experience. Purchases difficult. Not smooth

"I ordered 2 chairs. They sent only 1. When i called in, they didn't know who cancel the order of one of them. So to be polite, they gave me a 10% coupon for next purchase. I then went online to order the second chair but surprisingly the price had increased so i had to call AGAIN. They manually fixed the price to match the first chair. When I went to place the order I couldn't use the 10% coupon. So I had to call in YET AGAIN. The reps are not very knowledgeable, they put you on hold and they transfer your call over and over. So I ended up talking to a manager. He placed the order for me over the phone. Now I'm afraid of what I'm gonna get, if it's gonna come in good condition or not.
I can only imagine the HELL ! it would be to return something!! Neddles to say...it was my 1st and LAST purchase. Company seems to big to train reps well and have effective customer service. They can fix and fix problems but i'd like to avoid them! Especially when they have so much competition with good customer service and smooth transactions.

low quality

"I ordered knobs and pulls for my newly renovated kitchen, which came to about $300.00. The bubble knobs were nice and I decided to keep them. The pulls were a weird plastic metal thing and cheep looking so I choose to return those. One big problem with wayfair is things look great in the pics but cheap and crappy when you get them. To top it off they charge me more then a third of the selling price to return them. I feel like they lure you in with great looking items and free shipping but the quality just isn't there. I ordered a couple pieces of furniture as well and it was the same with one piece. One was awesome and the other was just chintzy. My advice, pay close attention to the descriptions. If they are vague and don't state all materials used, pass. "

Certainly NOT dancing and singing around the

"I am sure many have seen the Wayfair TV ads with the customers dancing around their new furniture, so we decided to order a bed from the Wayfair online catalogue. Everything went fine with placing the order and the shipping dates were met with ease. We had to stop the “Wayfair” dance to discover parts for the bed were missing. I called customer support and was told the parts would be located in a box covered with a red tape marked “Hardware” ….that box was missing and I noticed that the shipping container had been re-taped in multiple locations. My only assumption is somewhere in its travels to our home the box split, and the hardware box got lost. My wife and I made several calls to Wayfair and their response amounted to several solutions. The first solution was to simply call the vendor and ship out a hardware box replacement. The answer was the vendor doesn’t really have replacement hardware for the bed. Next, Wayfair ask us to take the list of hardware parts (list apparently survived the trip) and go to a home center and buy the needed parts to complete assembly. We really didn’t have the time and Wayfair offered to replace the entire order whereas we could use the hardware and possibly return the bed. Wayfair discovered that returning the merchandise would cost too much so it was possible that we could keep the second replacement bed. We considered this very fair but the offer was made BEFORE anyone at Wayfair bothered to check inventory. So, when the order was made the computer kicked the order back because there was NO inventory for this bed and the earliest date was August 27, 2018. Now we were off to the “home” store to replace all the hardware.

You can see our experience with this firm wasn’t sparkling, but in fairness, they made the effort but it fell very short of real customer satisfaction. Offers to replace the cost of hardware and our time wasted picking up the hardware has not been totally followed up by Wayfair. Before you put on your dancing shoes when you order from this company make sure you get everything you paid for in the box and that the box doesn’t arrive totally beat up and repackaged.

Never again!

"I ordered a 28" 9000 Series Easy Street Cart Portable Electric Grill by MECO Corporation, and it arrived today. I should have realized that there was something wrong when the tape holding the box closed was loose, and had several layers. Obviously it has already been opened. I opened it and the wheel was smashed sitting right on the top. The second clue that this was probably a return sent out to me was the fact that the BBQ is now out of stock. I explained when talking with someone that I am handicapped senior, have saved for a while to get this, and was told that Wayfair was a reputable company that stands behind the products and is aware of the product that is sent out. What it also shows that Wayfair will put the blame on FedEX for their delivery. Well it was not FedEx's fault, they did not retape the box and send it out to another sucker. Never again!!!!"

This company ****

"I was attracted by their low prices but at the end they either cancel the orders or is not the same model you order, they send a cheaper one."
