Sidchrome warranty? what warranty?

published

Sidchrome owned by B&D USA & made "not in Australia"and they need to see the tool by posting tool to Head Office if you don't have the 2012 receipt (??) before a going into the draw to have it replaced. Bought Asian spanner as replacement ( probably where Sidchrome comes from now) off EBay for less that the postage back to Sidchrome. B& D have same sort of reviews in US. They also make Stanley tools if you want to dodge buying from B&D altogether

Useless warranty

published

I had bought a $1000 dollar wall kit some years ago and 2 large socket sets, 2x failed Rachets and Pliers and was told i abused them. Utter bull!. i was using the so called bullet proof tools for their intended purpose, never again will i buy this crap that supposed to have a "lifetime warranty". Customer service is so bad , id give them zero stars if i could.

Warranty not worth much...

published

Sad to see poor quality being compounded with poor customer service. I contacted sidchrome as the plastic tray that holds the sockets in my socket set (a few months old only) had completely cracked and fell apart. All I wanted was a replacement tray.

Was told that the warranty didn't cover consumable parts like the tray. Asked if I could buy another tray, if it was a consumable. Was told no, they don't sell the trays by themselves. So, not a consumable then...

The only plus side: the agent I dealt with, [name removed], seemed to genuinely want to help me out, but was ham strung by management.

Sidchrome warranty is useless. Sidchrome claims of warranty are false.

I am 60 years old & have bought sidchrome tools all my working life, however never again.
Failed toolbox drawer after little use & have been trying to claim a repair since June 2018 (its now October) & they just give me the run around after runaround. Useless! One thing I've noticed is Sidchrome quaility has dropped significantly over the past few years. Sidchrome is nothing like the company they used to be. Avoid Sidchrome, there are better quality brands out there.

Very Poor After-Market Service

published

I have emailed Sidchrome three times trying to purchase locking mechanisms for their tool cabinets so that one key will lock/unlock all cabinets. The first few emails went unanswered so I upped the frequency and finally got a response telling me that lock smiths can't cut their keys (not even close to what I asked for). I gave them make and models for the cabinets I owned and the key numbers for each. Nada.

For what was a hugely reputable tool brand, the response seems way out of character. Here's to hoping I get escalated to someone who actually has a clue!
