Definitely do not purchase anything from the TENTWORLD stores.
The Tentworld stores have been in business long enough to know about the Qld Consumer Laws that are in place to help protect the consumer but they blatantly disregard these laws. If you return something within a reasonable time frame because the item was faulty or it didn't do as the product description said it would then you are entitled to a full refund but not according to Tentworld. At best they will give you an in store credit. Watch this space...

how shop staff should be
I purchased a product that I had already been able to try because of friends who already had one, bou I still felt like I'd needed to talk to someone from a store about the product so I phoned the Townsville Tentworld Store and talked to Erin who was fantastic, very helpfull and explained the answers to my Questions thoroughly,next day I was on my way to the store to complete the purchase. All the staff were helpfull, friendly and a pleasure to deal with. Thank you. Glen
Had my EVAKOOL fridge less than 6 months
Have problem with cable
Tent world tweed heads dont want to know about it and made me take to repairer.
Unable to honour warranty
Purchased an $1800 tent from these guys and gave them 2 opportunities to fix the issues, in the end they blamed supplier and suppliers blamed them and we ended up with a leaky tent and an explanation that broken zippers and faulty stitching is general wear and tear.
The tent was used maximum of 6 times!
Any reputable business would never leave their clients losing out because if their issues with the supplier.
I know each store is different, and faulty products can be frustrating to deal with both the customer and the store.
My experience is only with staff in the store, it has been very positive. Each time i was there plenty of staff, always offered help when walking in store. They offered extra help and when i asked for help using an item just purchased more than happy to help with simple request.
I prefer to go here that big branded stores, lots of products and friendly service for the Burleigh store.
Remember people are more inclined to leave a bad review than a good one. But if you have bad experience you should let people know.
Great customer service
Brought a swag on the weekend from Tentworld Ipswich and when unpacking, one of the spreader poles was slightly dented preventing it from extending properly. Took it back to the Ipswich store next day and they replaced the faulty pole straight away with another one. I was extremely worried I was going to have to wait or receive poor customer service from reading the reviews on here. So was very impressed and appreciative with the Ipswich Tentworld staffs help. I have brought numerous supplies over the years from Tentworld they have a great range and quality camping gear. Thanks for always providing a great experience.
Very disappointed with Dometic
We bought a Dometic Porta Potti from Tentworld.
We filled the top up with water and it was leaking.
Took it to Tentworld and were told that we had to take it up with Dometic.
We took it to the Dometic Service Center and they told us that they have no idea how long it would take.
We have been waiting two weeks and we have only now received a replacement water tank, and it looks old and second hand with all the marks on it, dust in the joints and water around the cap.
Very disappointed with Dometic's so-called after sales service.
Cheating, disgusting and unfriendly customer service
I went to your Coopers Plains store to ask for price matching on supa-peg 225mm tent peg.
1. The manager is refused as "there is not worth for them to match .29 cent cheaper at Snowy Store in Brendal". This is disgusting. Yes, as a customer, it is worth every single cents for me.
2. I contact the head office ask about their price match policy. The guy named Jarrod is very friendly and try to sort out the price match. They are happy to do it and ask me how many do I need and which store I will come to pay and collect it. I gave your Cooper Plai...
disgusting & underhanded customer service
I called your Coopers Plains store to ask for your best price on a Joolca hot water system. The guys reply was to come to the store if serious to discuss hes best price. We drove 45 mins to the store to be told they don't do any discount pricing on Joolca. The attitude was very snide & condescending when we explained what we had been told over the phone. We have used Tentworld a lot over the years but wont be going back any time soon. As fortune would have it Joocla was doing a 10% off on e-bay so we took up this offer. Karma perhaps? If any one is chasing Joolca check e-bay first.
These guys go way beyond the ordinary!
In our 60's, I have been able to talk my husband into going camping again! The guys at Tent World were really helpful and understanding of our need for the odd bit of comfort. They went beyond what you would expect from great sales staff in helping us put together what we needed.
purchase oztrail fast frame dusk tent and coleman all terrain queen inflatable matress.
great staff at Townsville. helen was very helpful with info about tent and mattress. will be back again to check out other gear. store set out is great with plenty of room to move.
Bad customer service!!!
Bad customer service, spent nearly 2 K from store when wanted to return some band new product as it was faulty they didnt swap it for me. I would give them zero if I could.
Great store and helpful staff
The staff are so helpful. I had a lady,Kat(?sp?) and she knew exactly her stuff!!! The store is laid out in a logical manner and not all squeezed into a small space
Today 2/01/2019 I bought a Yamaha Generator and I found the staff at Tent world Townsville very helpfull and were reasonably priced
Best shopping experience I’ve had in a LONG time.
We recently bought an old poptop camper and so are currently decking with everything needed for extended stays away from the rat race. We have visited most camping related stores throughout Townsville, pricing out our requirements. Until we walked into the new Tentworld Townsville store, we had come to conclusion that good old fashioned service was simply a thing of the past and that we should simply research the stuff we needed and then buy from the cheapest store (or online).
From the moment I walked into Tentworld I was VERY impressed by...their beautifully decorated and laid out premises and how well stocked it was. Better still is that most things are actually set up or on display so you can look, touch and try things before laying out your hard earned money. This alone was impressive but then I met the staff. Everyone I have spoken to there has been extremely friendly, helpful. Each have gone above and beyond in making sure I had all the information I wanted or needed with never a hint of impatience (like a lot of other stores). These reasons alone had me sold on purchasing m gear here but then I checked the prices. In most cases, there prices where equal to if not better then the other stores! All I can say is, go in and see for yourself if what I say is true. In the last two weeks I have purchased a fridge/freezer, three camp chairs, a kettle and some miscellaneous items totaling over $1300 and will be shopping there again very soon. Shayne
SO BEWARE. BEWARE BEWARE
I bought a shade, they had no display of so my only option was to open it and see what it was like. Absolutely "not" what i wanted so when I went to return it, in new condition in its packing a couple of days later,they wouldn't refund my money, this is there policy because it was opened
SO BEWARE. FIND SOMEWHERE ELSE TO SHOP THAT HAS A BETTER RETURN POLICY. I don't think I would shop there again!!!!!

Worst customer service!
If I could rate a negative star review I would. I went to the Tweed Heads store to look at a product I saw online, to see if it suited my needs. They didn't have it in stock but I was advised that it was in their warehouse. I ordered the product and paid, as instructed, by the sales person. When it arrived I collected the same and found it wasn't suitable. I returned to the store to find something better suited. A young fella helped me to find the right product but when it came to exchanging the products I was told I couldn't return my first or...der as it was a SPECIAL order. I'm a pensioner and I really couldn't afford both products but they wouldn't budge! They even sell Darche products in-store, so the return wouldn't have been out of place. Terrible company and shocking service. Unbelievably disappointed!
Outstanding, saved my first solo bikepacking trip
Was struggling to find the right equipment for my trip across Europe and chanced tent world. Was taken away by the great customer service from Fiona and her personal expertise in the camping game, knowledge that you cant buy online. Any starting off bikepackers or overlanders who cant work out their set up for the job, 100% come and see these guys to get you on your way, excellent.
Horrible customer service, refused return, tried to gaslight me, had to go directly through manufact
Purchased a 12v fan from these guys. Tried it on 3 different battery sources including one in their own store and it kept cutting out. Guy named luke comes out and brings a 14v 300 dollar battery pack and it starts working, then tells me it's my fault. Now I have to submit a claim to get my money back. Rude place run by poor management that does not take responsibility for their products.
Follow up: I spoke to the manufacturer and they have acknowledged that in future models of this fan, they have removed the cutoff feature as it appeared to...be problematic despite the fan, overall, being okay for most people. This means that they would have certainly acknowledged the return and warranty, and are sending me a replacement with the new model. This is further evidence that you, Tentworld, the retailer, have absolutely failed to provide the service you are supposed to, and I am glad I have shared this experience publicly so that other people know to shop elsewhere, like Snowys.com.au
exactly what we wanted (sleeping bags)
I would like to congratulate Tent world Townsville for there excellent service.
We were looking for two sleeping bags and Erin (Sales Person) could not do enough to help us.
We had been to other will known stores and were not treated well.
Once again thank you Erin for the excellent and friendly service.
