Excellent customer service
Bought a 2 seater and armchair online as couldn’t go to a showroom due to covid. Furniture arrived beautifully packaged and on time but was unfortunately wrong for the space. Brosa were very prompt and efficient in dealing with my return, they offer a 21 day change of mind return policy which is amazing. I would have no hesitation in buying from them again
Poor delivery times, product damaged on arrival followed by poor service
Ordered Mia Dining Set in August 2021 and still waiting for a complete product. When ordered it was a 12 week delivery estimate. We had no problem with that. Set finally arrived late November.
One of the 6 chairs was poorly constructed and damaged.
Immediately notified Brosa and am still waiting on the replacement. The customer service member has consistently been blaming covid for the delays. I appreciate some delay due to covid but this is ridiculous and using the pandemic as an excuse for poor service.
Communication with Brosa has been ...very one sided. Me contacting them and getting a ‘sorry for the delay it’s because of covid, I will follow up and get back to you asap’ response. Then I hear nothing for weeks. Extremely disappointed with still no expected date for the replacement part. Or offer of a refund for the faulty chair. If you need something guaranteed to be fit for purpose and delivered in a timely matter…shop elsewhere!
Faulty goods - no refund
Purchased a sofa for $1199 - it took 6 months to deliver and after a few months of light use (we are not big people) the back has broken with wooden splinters poking through the fabric at the back. After a week of being ignored when enquiring about warranty and refund we have now been offered a $180 refund or the possibility of a replacement in 6 months time. How about a sofa that doesn’t fall apart? So all in all this has been a disaster of a purchase. Just avoid them.
Brosa Amelia Armchair Sags
We purchased the Amelia Armchair online and it sags terribly and is very uncomfortable. We have tried calling Brosa customer service and can never get through. We have also sent multiple emails to support with no response. After care and customer service is absolutely terrible at Brosa. What good is a warranty if Brosa completely ignore customers once the purchase is done!
We also purchased the Mila 3 seater and that sofa is fantastic! So if your happy with your purchase Brosa can be great. However if your product is faulty expect to be put through the ringer. It’s been over a month and we are still waiting for a response re: warranty.
New damaged sofa delivered on the 26 June - Terrible customer support services
I had purchased the Mila 3-Seater Sofa on 19/06/2021 which has been delivered on 26/06/2021, however, the one we were provided with has been damaged. I had reached out to customer support with the relevant photo evidence (attached) as soon as it was delivered to sort out an exchange where I had asked for the new replacement to be inspected before delivery. The customer support had confirmed with me that the replacement will be checked and how the warehouse team will be reaching out to sort out the exchange.
As I had not heard back from the war...ehouse team for a week or so, I had reached out to confirm if this exchange was still taking place. The customer support had advised that they are checking in on it but have no further updates. I had asked to speak to the manager as the representative I was speaking to had let me know that there was nothing else they could further do to assist. They advised that I be contacted in the next 24-48 hours (I assumed 2 business days as this was on a Thursday). The 2 business days had come and I had not been contacted to sort this issue. I would never buy or recommend anyone to purchase furniture from BROSA again.
Very poor service experience
Purchased Meggs Sideboard in December, promised a 5 week delivery, took about 10 weeks plus 2 week delivery schedule. It turned out to be faulty with a crack.
2nd try, after a couple of followups it was replaced in Feb with another piece with damages and poor quality compared to the first one.
Third time lucky?? Not yet..
Its been almost 4 weeks, raising this issue with customer service and not even one email or response from Brosa. Have sent about 10 emails, submitted feedback on bad follow to CoFounder with still no luck.
- Poor customer service
- product quality
- no quality check...
Appalling After Sales Customer Service
I placed an order and waited three weeks for delivery. Item was large but well packed in a cardboard box. On opening box the top of the entertaining unit was smashed. We saw it was stored in delivery truck on it's end (where smashed). Immediately reported damage to Brosa and at first requested replacement as I paid the extra money for the purchase guarantee (waste of money). I wrote three emails, no response to any of them. After a week rang the company, fobbed off. Finally received an email response providing three options, but by this time...I requested a full refund (due to lack of customer service to that point) and collection of damaged cabinet. That was over two weeks ago and several more emails requesting update on where my refund is. No response received. The after sales service is appalling and significantly lacking (there is none). I would never deal with them again. Very disappointing as their products appear stylish.
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.
Beware of fabric
Website Is easy to use and product range is great. We purchased all our furniture for our new home from Brosa however after a few months of use the fabric faded so badly the grey looked pink! Was advised this is not faulty but offered to refund furniture minus the 10% delivery charge as a gesture of goodwill. We replaced the fabric lounges for the velvet fabric and the dining chairs and bar stools with leather (at an additional cost) however we now have 4 bed frames and 3 office chairs that have all discoloured as they are made from the same c...rappy signature fabric that apparently discolours in sunlight and artificial lighting. Beware when selecting material for furniture, steer clear of the signature premium range unless you live in darkness!!
I purchased the Pampero dining table and just over a year and a half of owning it cracks started to appear along the edges of each side of the table with some cracks running through the middle of the table. This would also explain the sagging of the table as well. They weren’t just “surface” cracks they are structural cracks. After contacting Brosa they requested images which I had sent for them to reply with “image evidence suggests the concrete is not cracked it’s the paint coating. Also due to extreme light, artificial lighting, temperature, humidity and radiation could have contributed to the damage”. So basically don’t take it out of the box is what they are suggesting. Would NEVER purchase from Brosa again!!!!
Disappointing and dishonest service
I purchased the Sondra Sofa bed for $600 in 2016. The couch was pretty but uncomfortable but we had issues with the couches legs which resulted in structural issues with our couch. My issue was when we asked for a refund, I had serious issues with organising the return and getting back the full refund of the couch. I was told I could not return the couch unless it was in original packaging which means I had to source a couch sized box. When I finally organised this and returned the couch I was then charged $170 for the cost of the return. This ...is against Australian consumer law. See reference: https://www.accc.gov.au/consumers/consumer-rights-guarantees/repair-replace-refund#returning-the-product My issue is, that this is a very common occurrence as I was only refunded the cost of shipping upon my insistence. Looking at other negative reviews I have found a lot have people have had the same issue and haven’t known their legal rights like me. I would have sent at least 20 emails and had at least 10 phone calls regarding this return and refund. I have never left a bad review in my life but this experience has left me nothing but frustrated.
Questions & Answers
I want to order the Anica King Size bedhead. I live in Canberra. They say delivery is fast, is that true. I don't want to order and wait months.
Has anyone purchased the Brosa Sondra Sofa Bed?
Lots of complaints regarding your delivery service. Have these been addressed? I'm hesitant to purchase anything from you because of these complaints.
I can honestly say Brosa is a brilliant company they addressed some of the issues I had with the delivery company & the last 4 items were on time & intact not a mark on the box it did make me hesitant...to keep purchasing as the first few unbelievably the box looked like a dogs breakfast but the furniture not a mark on it I took photos & let Brosa know they were great offered compensation but I thought no need as furniture was fine but just so they know how I received it so I then bought lots more furniture as I needed to fill a new home so I will continue to purchase as their furniture looks fantastic & is comfortable Zac
My experience has been shocking. I literally got an email today saying they were passing my issue onto a third party customer service team!!! This is after waiting nearly 3 months beyond the promised ...delivery date. I think that says it all about how much they care about resolving issues (i.e. they don't!).
