Don't buy a second hand Springfree Trampoline
I know that there is a lot of love for Springfree Trampolines but I didn't see any honest reviews from people like myself who thought it was a good idea to buy one second hand because I thought it would still be good quality. I could have bought a new Vuly trampoline for the same price but I thought I was doing the right thing.
The trampoline I bought was about 4 years old and as soon as I got it, the stitching on the mat started ripping leaving giant holes and the plastic rod holders stitched into the mat starting snapping in half. Not just o...ne, it was about 6 or 7! They look solid, but there was something wrong. I contacted Springfree and over $700 later I had a new mat and net. Great, I thought, I really should have bought a different brand but at least it should last 2 years (that is all the warranty goes for) and then the rods started snapping... so far it is only two, but wow, don't expect them to last very long.
Springfree Shade - poor quality did not last more than 6 months.
Purchased a Springfree shade in December 2020. Used it for 6 months but now has a huge rip through the middle. This may has been caused by a windy day but called up to see if it was covered by warranty. They completely shut me down saying that it was not covered and should be taken down during winter. I was not advised of that condition so now is nothing more than rubbish. Spent $199 for this item and now is garbage. Springfree charge so much for everything. Trampolines cost more than double of any competitor and their items not lasting more than 6 months is ridiculous.
Xmas delivery in November
Buyer Beware! I purchased this week as their website stated to order early for Christmas. I have been told that there are no installation dates available between Dec to 4th Jan. My delivery instructions stated as close to Christmas as possible. I was offered a video on their website why Santa has to deliver in November. I am a single Mum, and have saved for 2 years to buy a safe trampoline, and I am sad the service for installation and delivery is not child friendly.
Great trampolines, but don't try to claim on your warranty
Our first Springfree trampoline lasted 10 years before needing replacement parts. The replacement mat and net wore out in 9 months. After having to mail the faulty parts from Melbourne to Queensland at our own expense they refused to honour the warranty, claiming we had installed the mat incorrectly, which wasn't true and certainly didn't explain the net also tearing. We've bought another one because they are still the best trampolines available. If we have the same problems and they try that line again we will take them to VCAT.
Disappointing Customer Service
I had been recommended the Springfree trampoline over any other by friends, family and neighbours. But when it came time to purchase one, the customer service I received was obdurate and left me feeling like they just didn’t care for my business nor to make a sale as there were plenty of other customers waiting in line to purchase one. This certainly isn’t the way to treat a customer!
Great trampoline but stressful and difficult installation
We have been very happy with the quality of the trampoline and after three weeks we are enjoying it a great deal. However we were let down by sales advice that self-construction of the trampoline was easy and manageable by two people (installation was not available at the time of purchase). We followed the instructions carefully (and watched all of the prescribed videos on YouTube) but after hours of effort and stress we found the job impossible. We sought assistance from SpringFree which was met with a polite but unhelpful offer of phone suppo...rt. We ultimately put the trampoline together with the help of two friends (four adults in total). Had we purchased the trampoline two weeks later, a gathering of that number in our back yard would have been in breach of Coronavirus restrictions and we would have been left with a unusable, partially constructed product.

So disappointed in this company
I called Springfree and requested to book the 'yard assessment service' and same-day installation, and was told "someone will call you back" to book the date and time. No phone call received. I called Springfree again today, 3 days later, and I was passed between two departments and got told the same thing again: "someone will call you back". Waited all day and still no phone call! So now I've bought a Vuly online instead. If the customer service is this poor for someone wanting to buy a trampoline, I certainly won't trust it to be any good if something goes wrong with the product. Poor form Springfree.
Warning to parents
I just want to start off by saying that in no means am I writing about the quality of the product but about the lack of safety information.
We came to the oakleigh store to decide on the size of trampoline we wanted to choose for our daughters 2nd birthday at 19 months my daughter myself and my husband were aloud to jump and test out the trampolines. We were the only people in store and NEVER were we told about double bouncing or how dangerous it is for young children to be on a trampoline.
We decided on one and purchased for her birthday. The...
Great product, but misleading marketing...
We have recently purchased a Springfree Round Medium, and placed the order in November with the intention to receive the trampoline for Christmas.
In the lead up, we noticed 'free delivery' and additional 'accessories' were commonly included in advertising deals. When we placed the order we were advised the campaign was over but would include delivery if we place the order there and then, and that this was unlikely to be carried into the Christmas period.
We placed the order, intending to hold off on assembly till closer to xmas.
A few we...
Disappointed. Product rusted out, fiberglass rods lost coating.
We bought the trampoline about 12 years ago. This is outside the 10 year guarantee and the product has rusted out and the frame collapsed. The coating on the fiberglass rods all came off and the kids know not to put their hands on them. But the kids do love the trampoline. My mistake was waiting until the trampoline failed to contact them. Net result, "sorry sir but you'll have to buy another at full price - $2,600". Now I did that, so that means that I must be some kind of loyal customer, but I had hoped for slightly better customer serv...ice than that. If I had my time again, I should have filed for warranty inside the 10 years. What is certainly true is that the "built for life" is not really true. Unfortunately I can't post photos to show what the extent of the failures.
Good product, terrible warranty support
We purchased a this trampoline back in 2009 and it has been used daily for the past 9 years. In 2017 the mat had finally worn out so we purchased a new one, expecting to get at least another 5 or 6 years life out of the new mat.
Barely 12 month later the new mat has completely fallen apart. When we approached SFT we were told that it must have been our installation of the new mat that caused the problem and we were not covered because we had not used one of their installers, and as such no warranty was available. They refused to consider ...the fact that the stitching had completely come apart and that we had fully followed their instructions as to the installation and instead advised us it would be $400+ to purchase a new mat. It's clear to us that the quality of the product has suffered as the popularity has grown, and I'd recommend anyone to steer away from the latest versions of their product as they just don't last. Given the price they charge, I can only suggest that you look at something else. Their post sales support is hopeless, and warranty isn't worth the paper it's written on.
Appalling customer service!!! DO NOT BUY
I wouldn’t recommend buying this product for the customer service alone!! Absolutely appalling. We purchased a trampoline 5 days before notification of a promotion and the company refuses to honour the upgrade. Customer service a 0 star rating
A Nice Trampoline, let down by poor service and shifty warranty
A Nice Trampoline, let down by poor service and warranty that changes.
We brought the Trampoline before Xmas 2016, only to find out they where clearing old stock and the new better stock (from the same price) had double the warranty.
Trying to buy the Trampoline online was painful, with them requesting sending a copy of my credit card over insecure email, to prove it was me.
Very poor service only interested in getting more money out of loyal customers
We were early adopters of the Springfree trampoline (owner for approx 10 years) and have endured the fibre glass rods that would splinter and leave painful shards in kids hands.
We upgraded our trampoline and every interaction with Springfree has been expensive and difficult.
We recently utilised the Springfree relocation service which they charged $400 to provide. And this only includes dis-assembly and re-assembly, they will not actually re-located the trampoline.
Upon asking them to re-assemble the trampoline they refused to do s...o until we purchased a new safety net for about $300. the net was recently replaced a few years ago and was perfectly fine, yes it had a few small holes but nothing worth worrying about. This is similar the the experience we had when we made a warranty claim on the original trampoline, it ended up costing us a fortune and we effectively ended up buying the trampoline again. I think they have a great product but I notice they have competition and I would check out their competitors and in particular their customer service before you decide to purchase a Springfree brand trampoline.
HOPING MAD CUSTOMER SERVICE THAT LACKS SERVICE SPRINGFREE TRAMPOLINE
I am pretty patient and understanding but am annoyed at SPRINGFREE TRAMPOLINE'S customer service. It has always been pretty poor even when buying a product, but wait until you question the product and its warranty your in for a nasty surprise. My now 7 year old son has rarely used the trampoline and I am a stickler for rules as I personally had many falls as a child and am nervous around them but it appears all these trampolines no matter how well you look after them have one major fault that Springfree refuse to acknowledge (probably because...it makes them a fortune in replacements) that is the stitching especially near the opening which would obviously get more use than the rest of the mat is quick to deteriorate, I didn't even notice this until a number of us mums were talking about them and how rude the customer service is and the fault in the stitching at the entry. One of the mums showed me on mine and I was shocked to see it was coming away too. When I rang the company a rude women keeps talking over me telling me they have had other people that have had the trampolines for 13 years with no problems and as I told her that is not proof just your hear say and there was no offer or interest in fixing the problem or looking into it. NEVER AGAIN WILL I WASTE MY MONEY ON THIS PRODUCT, there are many more interesting things for kids to do that don't cause injury or concern every time a child uses the product. Suggest parents spend there money on joining a sports club (surf life saving or the like) much more community minded and fun for the whole family.
Questions & Answers
I have an existing trampoline I'm pretty sure it is 8ft but I need a new net and the jumping base and padding for the springs. Can you please help me.
Hi Rose, if you have our brand of trampoline, we do have a range of Spare Parts available. Please call our Customer Care Team on 1800 586 772. Regards. The Springfree Team
So, most people seem happy with the quality of the trampoline - safety and durability. But does it have a high rating on the bounce factor?
Springfree trampolines provide a smoother bounce and they are gentler on your knees and joints. In 2012 consumer watchdog CHOICE reviewed 12 popular trampolines sold in Australia. Springfree Trampolin...e was the only model they recommended as safe and CHOICE also concluded that Springfree had the most comfortable bounce. The mat also provides a more responsive bounce and an impact absorbing soft edge. Have you seen the online videos of the awesome bounce and height that is achieved on a Springfree Trampoline? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S60uJkptxVg&list=UUKWTMx9j3usUcl1AIYsO3ZA Kind Regards, Springfree Team
