Responding to a damning article on econsultancy.com headed: Made.com: a case study of customer service hell?' Made's then CEO pledge[d] to greatly improve service levels'. The article was published in 2012. Seven years later, every review site, with the mysterious exception of Trustpilot, indicates how far short he fell of that ambition. The experiences recounted on these sites closely match my own, with reports of delays, empty promises, lame excuses (warehouse issues being a favourite) and non-existent customer support, (though you can be assured of bringing them crawling out from under their stone with their mealy-mouthed platitudes by posting a critical review on Trustpilot). After a four-week wait for the item I'd ordered to reach their distribution centre, it spent the next three weeks supposedly being prepared for dispatch'. When I chased this, I was fobbed off with an obviously copied-and-pasted reply offering a new dispatch schedule. Three subsequent emails were simply ignored, and the estimated date for my order's dispatch remains unchanged 12 days after its expiry. I'm now in the process of securing the return of my money for services not rendered. Hilariously, in a 2017 interview with The Guardian', Made's founder stated his ambition for the company to be the new Ikea'. Well, we can all dream. Meanwhile they must content themselves with being the dotcom Acorn Antiques.
The website looks very professional and the items very beautiful due to quality of the photography and Photoshop Retouche. Once you get the items you see that is a leg of quality and fabric and colors.
I ordered a rug and mugs. The monks were broken due to bad packaging and the rug looked nothing like it's item info. Lost four hundred euros.
I would never use this company again the quality is not great but the customer care is even worse. I will chalk that down to experience and will never use again. Once I have eventually got them to pick up the really poor product.
Tip for consumers: Aviod using there are many better furniture supplier out there I went to Dwelll who were in a different league. So much better customer care and better value for money.
