Furniture “lost” disgraceful customer service
Ordered furniture 9 weeks ago & still no delivery. Contacted freight company several times with little to no success. Received email from BROSA saying freight company have “lost” furniture & my order updated to delivery in 2021 (a further month away). No phone contact from BROSA, disgraceful customer service & no product delivered.
Heavily delayed delivery - poor customer service
Delivery of items pushed significantly out from advertised timeframes.
Some items to be delivered over 6 weeks late & after Christmas (we have moved to a new home & were hoping to host).
Customer service were not very helpful.
Will never order here again!
Will never order here again, beside from the fact there products are tiny in scale (small built) their delivery times are unacceptable. Order in June, will receive in December. Don't bother, go someone better! Simple!
Should not have passed quality control! False advertising.
Bought the small Martin buffet cabinet off this company. I went on here and looked at reviews before going ahead with purchasing as it had a good rating. On their Website/Facebook/Insta photos the Martin range looked lovely made out of mango wood which I had never seen and overall looked great. Ordered it and as this company is in Melbourne and I'm in Qld I think they were trying to palm off a dodgy one. I opened the box and I thought the stain they had used was faulty as the front piece was fluro yellow. Stuck out so badly! Called them and lon...g story short they said it was the unique colour of the wood and we could send it back but wouldn't refund us our postage which was nearly $240. Lot's of emails back and forth and in the end after I said I was going to take it up with consumer affairs they gave me $100 back so I'm still out of pocket. Not happy, it wasn't a "change of mind" return, it was false advertising and I hope it doesn't happen to anyone else. First pic is the buffet we received and the one off their website. Brosa if you read this update your social media photos to show all the "unique" colours!
16 weeks wait for 3 chairs
I ordered 3 bar stools and was told they should arrive in 16 weeks. Are you kidding me. 7 weeks later we have zero chairs to sit on and every time I enquire about the progress I get a snooty remark. Ridiculous wait for 3 items!!! Never order from them again!!
Absolutely Dreadful Service and Faulty Product
I cannot believe the incredibly poor-quality product, communication and customer service from this company! The worst furniture buying experience that I have ever had.
First delivery: They deliver out a poor-quality faulty bookcase (taking 3 hours to assemble). They then proceed to tell me that they can’t let me know when it would be changed over until Monday (this is Friday afternoon, no one works one weekends there apparently) The next thing I'm getting a text message about delivering to me on the Saturday morning? When I happen to be out. I...replied to the text message N and advised that Monday would be a better day. That should be the end of it right? But no its not….. I then start to get text messages about a delivery being on the way this morning? I respond to those messages (as I am not home) but the responses go ignored and they end up turning up at my house and trying to call me several times while I am out at lunch. I ignore the calls. And finally, hours after their botched unscheduled delivery, I receive a text from them asking if I was available today?? No acknowledgment of the responses I had already sent or apologies for booking in a delivery without any form of consultation or contact with me. Finally managed to book another delivery to have the faulty bookcase replaced. Second delivery: The delivery guys turn up talking about trying to repair the original one delivered? Not physically possible and not discussed as an option at all with me prior to them turning up. Just more waste of my time. The original fault (delivery 1) constituted a major failure of the product under consumer law and thus, I, as the customer am able to determine what remedy is appropriate. Not Brosa. They finally understand that it can't be repaired and get started on assembling the replacement product. They advise me about 10 minutes in that their drill doesn’t have any charge and ask me if I have a power drill they can use? Ummm, no I don’t. Three hours later they finally bring in the replacement. And guess what???? It's FAULTY too!! This is despite being promised that they would check this one prior to delivering it out and me asking the delivery guys on the day to check it before they got too far along the assembly process. I end up speaking to them that afternoon, not helpful at all, only to be told that there is nothing they can do as they have nothing to be able to replace it with! She offered a refund for the other two pieces of furniture in the lounge that were also delivered last Friday (They were all ordered to match), but can do nothing for me about the other pieces of the same range that I had delivered last year? It was all ordered to match and ordered in good faith. She also hung up on me without providing her name when she was asked and I was requesting to speak with her manager.
Only buy if you are willing to wait for longer than the website states..
We were originally stoked with our purchase of Brosa's Como modular sofa 1 month ago (17/05/2020). The customer service in-store was excellent and their prices for the quality offered was very competitive.
However, the progress since then has been nothing short of exasperating and disappointing. We are now in a new house with no sofa for the living room and no end in sight.
When we first purchased the sofa, the delivery timeframe was 2-3 weeks and this seemed like a reasonable time for us to wait.
1 week later, the delivery timeframe changed...to 4-6 weeks. When we called the customer hotline, they assured us that it would definitely not be longer than 4-6 weeks and they would inform us as soon as it arrived. 2 weeks later, the delivery timeframe changed to 6-8 weeks. When we called the customer hotline again, they now stated they could not give us any assurances of timeframe. Moreover, they denied ever speaking to us previously because "they did not have any notes in the system".
Poor quality control
Purchased a chair from Brosa in beginning December 2019 , waited 5 months for delivery( Up from 12 weeks ) then COVID hit- All up 6 months later my chair arrives - absolutely filthy with 5 stains over that which l unpacked. Closed box and requested an in stock chair to avoid poor quality control and long waiting again. Upgraded Paying extra for another chair , wait another two weeks for pick up of first chair and delivery Of next chair to arrive . Open box and pull small piece of packaging to find a number of what looked like oil stains over the velvet material. Shocked and so disappointed- requested refund and gave feedback. Never again.
6 MONTHS ... The expected time frame !
I purchased all our products through the sales lady at the Brisbane store. When considering to order products all together, we were advised to do so to ensure colour of products were in the same batch. (Late realising this wasn't ever going to be the case...)
When purchased I was asked when I would like the products (advised when keys to new house in the next 3 months ) the lady advised no issues and to expect mid March to early April at latest. However when calling around March to ask for an ETA and happy to recieve from early April. Custom...er service advised not expected until early June. Disappointed to find the item I was waiting for / single bar stool... (Even though a request for them to arrive altogether due to advice of batches with colour variation...) Disappointed that I am waiting on one bar stool to complete my order and expected time of this one product is six months from request. When I advised for the order to be made together for colour variation , the sales rep advised this had been organised. Obviously this wasn't as still the one bar stool to be delivered... (Weird to think they re made 2 and not the third altogether.) Recommended if you aren't in any rush to recieve your goods! Can't believe my house was built before 1 bar stool!!!! When organisation of the delivery and times requested. I asked for a morning delivery due to work. (Another request missed in this whole transaction) with also products added for delivering even when requested bar stools to arrive together (to avoid nil issues with returning if colours didn't match. ) Not my ideal place to purchase from would recommend a diy your own furniture given time frames your working with !
Sofa bed extremely uncomfortable and firm
I bought the Siesta 3 Seater Sofa bed, it looks great and is not too bad as seating but it is extremely uncomfortable to sleep on. The website lists this item as 'snug' not too soft, but not too firm, however it is very firm and painful to lay on. It is disappointing as if I knew it was actually firm not snug, I would not have purchased this. Waste of money!
Do Not Buy From Here - Terrible Customer Service And Substandard Products
I ordered the Marlon Bedside Tables and Sideboard and the delivery was delayed multiple times - it took 6 months for them to arrive.
When they finally received them they were nothing like the pictures - they were very chunky and clunky. To say they were 'rustic' would be an understatement. They felt like they came out of a cheap balinese workshop, not the clean lines that are in the pictures. It is not Modern nor Contemporary as described.
The customer service I then received was nothing short of disgraceful. The day the return was due to...be picked up our daughter was rushed to hospital in an ambulance with a medical emergency and BROSA gave me no assistance to re-book the collection - they basically left me to make calls to their courier service for hours on end whilst in the hospital with my daughter. After all that they then tried to short change me on the refund and I have no option but to lodge a complaint with Fair Trading. Disgraceful. Do not purchase.
Faulty and missing items.
Look at photos for faulty items and quality. Rethink your order before buying from here. There are definitely many fake reviews.
I have left a previous review on Brosa which stated that i was sent faulty office chairs and it took another month to send me new ones. however i was just sent my new replacements after a month waiting and one of them is faulty with massive blue marks on them. I am also missing both parts for the legs of the chairs. I specifically asked them to check my new replacements for any marks. spoke to brosa who said it will ...take another 5-7 weeks to get new replacements sent out. I ordered these chairs in December 2019. During this time waiting for my chairs my sofa was delivered from brosa and it came faulty. There was a huge mark on the right side and thread pulls throughout. It is taking another two weeks to get my new couch delivered. will update if the new couch is faulty. This company is an absolute joke with bad customer service and horrible product. If they spent less time advertising fake good quality products and more time on actually making good products i would shop here again.
Worst customer service - be careful
After three attempts to deliver the wrong table, the right one was delivered damaged. They backed their truck into my fence and damaged it of which they are telling me it happened before they arrived.
My Chairs for the table are now being delivered over 4 months away. End product is quite disappointing. I would stay away from this company. The service is appalling. They don’t attempt to even admit what terrible things they have done.
Billie Jean Rocker
When ordered the chair was pictured with stoppers on the rockers to limit how far it would tip. Without the stoppers the chair rocks to far back and feels unsafe and scary which makes for an uncomfortable experience. As the chair in the add is pictured with stoppers, when the chair arrived without stoppers, we requested that they be supplied. We were told that they would be sent as they are in the assembly instructions if they were out of stock but would be sent when available. An email arrived today to say they had been advised by the maker st...oppers were not supplied with the Billie Jean rocker and the website images were incorrect. As they are clearly visible on the website they should be supplied with the chair. without the stoppers we will probably get rid of the chair as my wife feels unsafe in it.
Awesome team in Fitzroy showroom, but terrible product and after-sales experience
Awesome team in the Fitzroy showroom. Great quality furniture for the price! Biggest let down was the muck around with a confirmed delivery being cancelled without any contact, essentially wasting an entire day waiting. Online customer service didn't help the situation by twice confirming the delivery when we suspected it wasn't coming, only to be informed at the end of the day that the items were not going to be delivered for a further month. Disappointing delivery experience after a great showroom experience.
