I would never buy a good guys kitchen ever in my life again, poor and rude service and the quality is poor
Handles have rusted, cupboards didn’t align, the fridge space is way too short for a large fridge. The soft cupboards have fallen off 50% off cupboards in less than 2 years and had to make significant unexpected changes with the builder that stuffed up the electricity access. When you contact them they don’t call you back and they disregard your complaints despite when they sell you the kitchen they tell stress the quality of the product
After sales service
Extremely happy with kitchen however after sales service does does not exist over half a dozen phone calls not returned contacted the good guys which is who we went through to order the kitchen still no luck finally got through and was told that the doors I wanted were $50 each that was find $50 for a courier Was told that I could not pick the doors up myself so I accepted that but then I was told $50 for administration fee that was ridiculous I was told in no uncertain terms take it or leave it
Not happy at all with our decision to go with Good Guys kitchens - all milk and honey at the beginning and then you are at the mercy of each tradesperson - no one takes responsibility- they say the installer is expected to oversee the other trades but he really does not - he provides the contact and we have to do the chasing. No one bothers to come around to even see if the job has been completed as per the design or make an inspection of the completed project. I mentioned this in my final survey report but no one even bothered to call me. They are very rigid and no cooling off period. We went to them as we thought - great! All in one! But basically you are left alone chasing individuals- bad experience with Stone people too - visible joints.
11 weeks. No kitchen. Tenants pulled out of rental agreement. Who could blame them. Cancelled contract with supplier. Tried to, illegally, hit me up for $800 cancellation fee. Astonishing! An organization at war with itself. Sales, design and manufacturing blaming each other for the failures of their internal culture and who are openly contemptuous of their customers. Sadly, from my experience, a fairly standard Australian management model.
So far so good, enjoying the kitchen.
The kitchen is very nice and we really like it. Our only negative was waiting for missing or damaged parts to be delivered too long after the first installation. This caused us to wait for the complete kitchen and have more days off work for the missing parts to be installed.
Bad customer service, terrible product availability, average quality. Basically you get much less fo
Unfortunately I walked into Goodguys one day and I thought to myself they have %20 off their kitchens and free design, I should give it a go. I have done ikea kitchen in the past and many DIY jobs around the house so I consider myself a very capable DIYer.
The designer was ok, did some rough measurements (simple layout) and had few good points. After a few hours at the house I got the pressure sale and was told the price is only the same if I sign up on the spot (why not telling me before and wasting 4 hours of my time). I didn’t as same layout would have cost me half of the price even after their %20 off from ikea. Their point of sale was that everyone else is rubbish and their products is made in Australia and of superior quality.
The next day I was contacted by a manager who offered me additional %10 discount and even though price was more than ikea, I thought I would give it a go. They were kind of nice to this point.
On the morning to sign the contract the designer was extremely rude and when I asked two questions she refused to answer and said I can make changes on the day the measurements are done. She was busy and had to go even though she booked the time with us. The measurer was worse than the designer and wanted to give me a cabinet over the fridge which was 10cm higher than the rest of the cabinet and when I refused I was told I am fussy.
They advised me of making a few changes which I ended up having to spend a few hundred dollars at Bunnings, ikea and Aussiecut to custom build and fix those issues. They have sent me wrong parts and they are advising me of leaving gaps where I shouldn’t have and they have made so many mistakes in the parts they sent me.
After sale customer service is horrible. They say they come back to you within 24 hours on their online portal and you are lucky if they notice you within a week. They never apologise or care for the mistakes they made and never try to help you.
They quality of the cabinets is okish but the horrible customer service which has left me with an unfinished kitchen after few months is beyond ridiculous.
I would never recommend them to friends maybe some enemies but do yourself a favour, save a few grand and go elsewhere.
We are extremely happy with our new kitchen. Extremely function! I would recommend your company to my family and friends.
Wish I had read these reviews first!
Worst experience ever! Wish I had seen these reviews before we decided to get outlet kitchen done with them. Terrible customer service and were very rude on the phone. 18months later and the kitchen is still not finished. They set you up with a trade company to install the kitchen then take no responsibility when the job is not complete. Wish I could have given 0 stars. Would recommend to go elsewhere for a kitchen.
Terrible, horrible, don’t go with them
From measuring to installation, everything was wrong, after the installation the cabinets measurements was wrong, no customer service, no one know what is happening. Don’t give your money to them, go somewhere ey
Do not use this company
Any savings made by using this company are gone when the kitchen arrived damaged and with parts missing. I have now been waiting an additional 4 weeks for my kitchen to be completed and I still haven't been given a date. I have a number of trades now on hold until the kitchen has been installed. Very Disappointed. Lots of apologies but no action. Use a local company that you can deal with face to face. I trusted the association with the Good Guys. What a mistake.
I was ripped off too with the supposed cancellation fee of $897. For what?!!!
In March 2013, Canberra Fyshwick store had an opening of Good Guys Kitchens. I stupidly paid $2000 to keep approx 4.6 metres of white Silestone at their introductory cost. Since then, I have tried numerous times to get that deposit back but never had a response of any sort, despite all the promises that a manager will call me. I then chased the money through their complaints site on their webpage. I was dealing with another fellow who seemed helpful - until I asked why I was only refunded $899. I had never commissioned a kitchen, just holding price on the granite. They have stolen $897 saying it was a cancellation fee?
The initial meet and design was great but we have now gone 10 weeks without a kitchen. It is one mistake after another, plans were changed without notice, cupboards installed not to the plan so appliances didn't fit, they have no interest in helping because they demand 100% payment before installation. When they did come out to fix things, it was a poor attempt. The end price was thousands over the quote and the job over all is poorly done. The product seems to be good quality (time will tell) but the stress and hassle of it all is not worth it. Go somewhere else. They seem organised at first but its all down hill after you sign up.
Not all reviews are bad
I didn't read the reviews on this company until after I signed up. I admit to sweating a bit until the job was completed. My problem though. My situation was that I needed a new kitchen ASAP. The property I purchased had a kitchen with 2 cupboards and a set of drawers. I was only ever going to get one quote. I had a rough idea of what it would cost and I cannot handle shopping around very much at all. I was therefore prepared to sign up on the spot if my expectations were met. This I did at The Good Guys, Helensvale, Qld. I went there with measurements, photographs and a design and the desire to Nike. Just Do It. Less than 2 hours later, I had the plan, the costings and had organised purchase of discounted electrical appliances (ceramic cooktop, wall oven, range hood) from the Good Guys. Good Guys staff member who I dealt with was very knowledgeable and caused me to rethink the selections I had made and change them accordingly. Came delivery day and several cartons had sustained damage. It was minor damage to components on a protected pallet and had occurred before Grace, collected the kitchen for delivery. It was then I realised that Freedom is also involved with this company and The Good Guys. I photographed all the damage and reported it via the online messaging system. This process only allows one photo at a time so it took a while. I was met with deafening silence. No answer came the stern response. After several days I became angry that my messages were eliciting no response at all. I messaged both the administrative group and the management team, advising them that an angry me was an ugly sight to behold. The matter was immediately acted upon and a new corner cupboard despatched to me. We made up the difference of damaged components in 2 corner cupboard units from the extra one sent. My friend is a cabinet maker of high distinction. He came for six and a half days it took us to remove the old and rebuild/install the new. Initially he had suggested that I paid too much for the kitchen. After completing the job, he said that the kitchen is of very good quality and he was quite surprised at the standard. The only hiccup we had was when he discovered misaligned clamp rebates on the adjoining joints of one of the kitchen tops. It is a U shaped kitchen. We had already fitted biscuits and glue to the joint and had to move quickly to clamp it together using a heavy duty ratchet strap before the glue set. The glue, biscuits and edge L Clamps hold it all together nicely. We weren't in a position to halt work and order a new top. The bad? The niggling points I mentioned. The good? An easy process that allowed me to design the kitchen and have this company draw it up, manufacture it and deliver it to the small island I reside on within the Southern Moreton Bay Island Group in Qld. I am completely satisfied with the purchase and happy that I went in this direction. My suggestion is that if you want several quotes- go to this company last as some pressure will be applied for you to make the decision on the spot.
So unprofessional kitchen group/ good guy kitchen
We had our new kitchen by kitchen group, introduced through good guys kitchen. Still so confused about the relation between kitchen group and good guy kitchen. But one year after our kitchen was bulit, one of parts on the cabinet was broke. We contacted kitchen designer who confirmed the kitchen has life guarantee and gave us the contact number and person of kitchen group. After we called him a few times, he promised to call back to arrange, but nothing happened. Last time when we called tel:07 3440 8400 and was told she will let this guy know and give us call, again nothing happened. So disappointed and next thing we will try to go to good guy kitchen and see if anyone can help. So unprofessional kitchen group/ good guy kitchen.
1st step getting a new kitchen
We are building a new home and I have been researching kitchens. The 2 staff members in the kitchen installation section at Good Guys Erina were very helpful. One lady was fairly new to it, but still very helpful and she was well supported by a very experienced lady. I was left with the impression of very friendly and honest assistance and when we are closer to the point in the build of final planning of the kitchen I will go in to them again and arrange it.
In store service is fantastic
The in store salesperson at Carseldine was fantastic. No pressure, all my questions answered and was obvious she was very knowledgeable. Based on this I booked an in home design appt. When the person rang to confirm the appt I was told that to receive benefit of any sales offers that I had been given I had to sign up on the spot. I informed them that was not how I made decisions, I liked to think things over and again was pressured that I would only get the sales incentives if I signed up. So I cancelled the appt as my needs as a customer were not being considered. The sales person from store called me back a few weeks later and when I told her what had happened we rescheduled with her reassurance that I would not be forced to sign up. I have purchased all appliances from The Good Guys for years so am looking forward to this consultation.
Stay Away from Good Guys Kitchens
Some of the Good Guys staff are competent, but most the contract trades people are incompetent & completely unprofessional. I've been trying for over two months to get them to make a couple of important repairs (which broke FIVE months after installation) and they are not responding. My next step: a formal complaint to Fair Trading. STAY AWAY from Good Guys Kitchens even if you have to spend more with another provider.
Planning our kitchen!
Sam helped us with all our finishes today and was a great help! Can’t wait for it all to be installed!!!!
I have recently signed a contract for a new kitchen with Kenross Kitchens. They told me I had to arrange for any new appliances, so I went to the Good Guys at Erina Fair to look at Rangehoods & Sinks. On my arrival the first person to greet me was a lady sitting at a desk who asked could she help me. I gave her my story and she asked why I didn't get a quote from the Good Guys for my new kitchen. I told her that we typed in "Central Coast Kitchens" in google but there was no mention of the Good Guys doing kitchen renovations. I obtained 3 quotes and finally signed a contract last Wednesday. As I am a regular customer of the Good Guys I thought I would bring this information to your attention for investigation.
Worst experience of my entire new house build
The first appointment with the consultant was good, she was very helpful. Ongoing contact from [name removed] at the main office is NSW was always pleasant and helpful, BUT... from the moment the kitchen went to production the nightmare started. The delivery was delayed by 3 days as they were unable to have the full kitchen completed by the date they submitted to us and therefore the truck was unable to deliver, . which then delayed the installers who were not available once the kitchen finally arrived, we paid for 3 days pre paid installation and they could only give us 1, once the installer [name removed] (who was fantastic) arrived he noticed that incorrect pieces had been supplied so it would need to go back to production, Given it was the 21st December they had closed. We then realised they had made the fridge opening way way to big which looked ridiculous, they sent out a assessor ([name removed]) who agreed that a problem had occurred and suggested that GoodGuys Kitchens (AKA Courtsean PTY LTD) supply a wine rack in the opening to compensate for the error which we accepted (unhappily) They then accused us of removing a load barring wall !!!!! which would be the reason that incorrect measurement occurred for the fridge opending (AS IF - of course this had never happened) [name removed] at the customer service centre was given our file, after weeks of back and forth emails and phone calls they gracefully offered us to have the wine rack at a reduced price of $1200 (screw that). Only when we began legal action did they finally after 3 months of paying the final bill of $30K supply the correct bulk head pieces and the correct colour of the incorrectly supplied panels. We still have a large fridge opening and will look at it with disappointment (until VCAT has a outcome) We have dealt with rude and arrogant staff and have been lied to on many occasions. We are only lucky that we recorded every phone call (with admissions of error) and kept all emails so that the legal action we are now involved in can happen (fingers crossed) As first time owner builders we will forever remember the terrible treatment we have received from THE GOOD GUYS KITCHENS and will ensure that everyone we know is aware of this so they can source out a better supplier.### Do not use them ###
