Customer Care Backup and Service

Have recently had installed Artificial Grass , Roller Shutters and Outdoor Blinds and I cannot speak highly enough of the service from start to finish, by ALL at Australian Outdoor Living. All the products are exceptional the installation was on time and the installers all were quality tradesman , I can’t believe it was that easy to get done after previous years of encountering poor service from numerous companies . Would recommend without hesitation that you give this company your business

its a pity that the new Franchisee now cannot come until just before Christmas. The whole job had been measured and quoted. I was told that even the grass had been put aside. So I assume it will then all take ages.

Great outdoor blinds and installation

published

We have the outdoor blinds installed just before the extreme warm weather and we were very happy that the blinds provided the extra level of protection against the hot sun. Gloria, the consultant, did a great job offering the right options to meet our requirements. Richard and Cam did a great job installing the blinds after discussing with us on ideal layout.

Poor Customer service

published

Probably had no issues with quality of blinds but their customer service is terrible. Cancelled and always moved my appointments. Told them I was to be the decision maker and wife was not going to be available. But still forced her to be there or they will cancel the appointment

We're happy with the installation. The pergola looks better than we expected. Australian Outdoor Living have been punctual in their delivery of material and installation. Thank you to the installers Alex and Brad. Also thank you to Phillip for managing the whole project.

We recently had installed the Remote Control Smart Roller blinds to our Cabana. Finished product is exactly what the Salesperson described to us at time of order. Looks and works Fantastic. Very simple to operate with remote control from Inside the house as well. Solid Structure and installed Professionally.
Made to my specification as discussed.

Great solution for pool area

published

Both measurer and checker were professional and courteous. Job took one day but was complicated by cutting around pavers in an irregular pattern. Required a small repair which was done efficiently and without any issues within days of completing the job. Completed product looks great.

Artificial Lawn - Back Yard

published

We had our back yard completed earlier this year and it looks fantastic will give it this hence why 3 stars, the only sour point of this Lawn is the service from the actual branch is absolute disgraceful. No Help at all. Would never go through this group again. Not trustworthy with billing need to check everything you are charged as I am still following it up and it has now been over 4 months. Don't pay anything until you are truly happy.

Artificial lawn with AOL

The company were very professional and returned my calls quickly. The artificial lawn looks wonderful where there was once bare earth and weeds. I would recommend AOL to my friends and family.

Poor poor poor

published

Spent over $5,000 for 3 outdoor blinds and have had them less than a year. 2 small holes have appeared on 2 of the blinds and I’ve been told that this is just wear and tear and therefore not covered under warranty!! Can not believe it!! Anything to get out of replacing/fixing. Thing is that the decision was determined from a photo sent through via email...did not receive a call just a reply email stating the above!! Extremely disappointed and will now have to take it further through consumer affairs!!

The perfect service and installation

published

The customer service for this company was and is fantastic, everything we asked for and more was given. Nothing was too big a job for them. I highly recommend this company to everyone when you need outdoor gear.
The after-installation service care was exceptional.
From the moment we called up all the way to the completion of the project customer service was excellent, fast and efficient.
They catered for all our needs and wants with the product we were after and I honestly can't find any fault with this company or the reason why people have given bad feedback since I could not fault them for anything. I Highly recommend this company, Thanks for the great service.

Back Yard Lawn

We are overall pretty happy with the service and job completed for our back yard lawn area. There are a few small problems, but happy enough with the outcome to recommend Out Door Living to anyone interested in transforming their back yard.

We were initially surprised because the initial quote exceeded our expectations but the friendly and professional staff, both in accommodating our wishes and in the finished quality and installation of the product, allayed our fears and justified the expense involved. Quick installation too. Thank you .

Top quality artificial grass from a top quality company

published

Australian Outdoor Living Victorian team is the gold standard for great service and a product of the highest quality. I purchased artificial turf for my back yard. Richard and Matt were totally reliable, always replying to emails, being punctual and were totally committed to producing a final result that would stand the test of time. The work beneath the surface was thorough and involved many layers of preparation to ensure the stability of the grass top layer. I cannot speak highly enough of both product and team at AOL. Many thanks to all.

Su1973asked

Do you have any information on how hot the artificial lawn gets in the hot Australian summer sun, can you walk on it in bare feet?

Hi Su,

During summertime, artificial grass may increase in temperature if exposed to the sun for extended periods.

If the temperature is uncomfortable to touch, we would recommend wearing shoes or using a picnic blanket (whilst staying under the shade to be as sun smart as possible during those high-temp days).

Otherwise, a quick spray of the hose cools down the lawn.

Kind Regards,
The team at Australian Outdoor Living

After giving feedback I was contacted on the phone and agued with. I tried to contact your head office and was directed back to the state branch they couldn't hold a conversation with me just tried to get off the phone and responded with short dismissive emails. I was given a discount after agreeing to leave a review on FB but I've been blocked from facebook because I shared a link for product review. Why do you ask for feedback and delete comments its very misleading and childish. This probably the reason you have to spend soo much on marketing.

They were very dismissive of me when I tried to point out where they screwed up. After job done, i got a threatening email re: payment. Not a company I would ever use or recommend

Ryan

aol know their clients have absolutely no power to do anything if there are problems and take advantage of if which they made disgustingly clear by their response to me. Unfortunately for me i was unaware of product review before engaging with aol. If you actually read through the positive comments they become quite comical and sound too good to be true and you realise the people commenting are just getting a discount to leave a positive review. In the end they couldn't resolve structural and cosmetic issues and refused to compensate me for damaging my property. I wish I didn't make final payment or sign the handyman's paper work because apparently it over rides industry and engineering standards.

Hi Ryan and Roslyn,

It is disappointing to read your negative comments about Australian Outdoor Living.

It means a lot to us when homeowners choose Australian Outdoor Living for their projects. We work hard to ensure that our clients are happy for choosing us. Most of the time, we achieve this and are lucky enough to receive some kind words in the form of a review, or post on our Facebook page. We're upset to read that this doesn't sound to be the case for you, and that this has led you to feel so negatively towards our company and even questioning the positive feedback we do receive from other clients.

We only ever ask for honest feedback. This is what is important to us, as it confirms what we're doing right and allows us the chance to improve experiences where possible. Once in a while we have tried to reach a resolution with a customer but they remain unhappy and begin to leave multiple negative comments across our Facebook page and advertisements. We do unfortunately have to remove serial posters from our business page as it has gone past a productive dialogue and becomes damaging to our advertising efforts.

We realise that 13% of our reviews on this listing are 'negative'. Please know that we take these posts very seriously and appreciate them just as much as the 'positive' posts; as these allow us to learn from, and get better at what we do. We'd like to reassure you that the 85% of 'positive' 4 and 5 star reviews on this platform are legitimate, and the result of years of hard work our team has put in behind the scenes.

If you would like to discuss this further we welcome you to contact us at feedback@aol-hq.com.au. (Please quote reference number PR16420Q.)
