Beware of Lowes contracted work

An expensive lesson learned. Purchased a chain link fence to be installed by Lowes. They don't tell you that the contractor can SUB CONTRACT the work out, so once you pay for the materials and work, then Lowes is done with you, and good luck on getting through to anyone for help. The installers cut through an electric cable, and I had to pay for the repairs to be done. Only one person showed up to install 550' of 5' chain link fence, and of course there are many mistakes. I spent three months dealing with Lowes Corporate. being passed around from person to person, and still no one has ever been out to check the work. No one takes responsibility. Make sure to find a reputable company to do your work, and do not make full payment until you are satisfied with the work done. Wish i had gone that route. I learned a $5000 lesson in contractors. In my opinion you should beware of any work done by Lowes.

Our home was broken into so we ordered stronger doors and locks along with installation services. It took a month to special order the back French Doors. The installers found some parts missing in the locking mechanism but managed to get it somewhat installed. I...

Lowes in Cromwell, Connecticut - Not notified.

Placed order on 3/2, delivery to store on/about 3/9. E-mailed Lowes on 3/12 looking for shipping info- no reply! Called Lowes customercares on 3/14. They told me order was ready for pick-up. Asked when it was delivered, they said 3/10. Got E-mail 5 hours later telling me my order was ready for pick-up(in response to my E-mail). Store manager said "sorry". Yeah, right! Should have bought at WalMart 2 weeks ago! They had same item in stock for the same price, but I don't like that company. Wanted to support my local Lowes, but it was not worth the aggravation.

someone obviously dropped the ball. that being said however you should NEVER rely on email communications with ANY companies.

they tend to take insane amounts of time to reply. why would you not have called the store inquiring about the item?

though in fairness the store should be contacting you when your order arrives. I know that's how it works here. though I can't say where but we're another large retailer that gets items sent to the store for customers who are then contacted once it arrives.

and notes are left on the order until it is picked up. If you were charged any shipping for it I would talk with their management and try to get that at least knocked off.

many will do so for fear of you calling their customer care line in their corporate offices.

no retailer wants to get those calls. because in that case they usually will end up giving the customer everything for nothing.

Lowes - Order delayed, order damaged

Ordered Affinity Stop on 1/30/2014. Was promised store delivery on or about 2/20/2014. Called Lowes and was told it was there. 2/24/2014 after 16 mile one way trip to Lowes, product was not there. Called 2/27/2014, 2/28/2014, no product. Product finally arrived on 3/3/2014, while I was out of town. Picked up product on 3/8/2014. Package was damaged in shipment and 7 foot products were all broken off at the 6 foot 2 inch length. The excuses we had were that Lowes shipped it to the wrong store, it ha to be returned to a central location before it was shipped to the correct store, and the store didn't receive a truck this week. I cannot wait another month and a half for satisfaction, now that product has arrived broken

In January 2014 I ordered a kitchen sink with faucet, soap dispenser and grid. I was told it would take 4-6 weeks (as I'm in Hawaii) After 4 weeks I was called that my sink came in. My contractor went to Lowe's and picked up 1 large box (thought everything was inside)...

Lowes in Beaufort, South Carolina - Carpet installation

Don't EVER buy carpet from Lowes. Once you are sold carpet they are DONE with you. If you have an issue you have 30 whole days to have it addressed after that they will refer you to a number that will not answer the phone and basically you are screwed. If you have a stain that you just want to have patched they don't even offer the technical service to provide you with that option. WARNING: DO NOT BUY FROM THEM. THEY ARE NOT CARPET PEOPLE AND THEY DO NOT STAND BEHIND THEIR PRODUCT! I have done my service to warn you. You can regard or disregard my advice.

Lowes in Yakima, Washington - Bad service

we bought a dryer and paid for the extended warranty well our dryer sensors went out within the first month and Samsung said they would replace it well lowes came and picked up the old dryer and I asked where is our new dryer is and the delivery man said it will be delivered the next day well it did not so we called and they said it wont be here until next week. Then we asked why would you pick up our dryer a week before our new dryer came. We told them bring our old dryer back until we get our new one the *** sales person said oh we took it to the dump.. which I am sure is a big lie it was only a sensor. then we talked to a manager and he said it will be delivered sat its Saturday and no dryer.

Lowes Contracts with A&E for warranty service. Appointments never kept and problem not resolved.

Our refrigerator is under warranty. The ice maker stopped making ice in both the upper and lower unit. We called Lowes and they have us the number for A&E. When we called they said the next available date was 8 days away on a Wednesday. We took that appointment and made it for 12 - 5. The day before the appointment we relieved an automated message to reschedule. When we called they said the next available was...8 days. I asked for a supervisor. They said they would escalate. We were given an appointment for that Friday 8 - 12. At noon I called. They said the guy called in sick and we had to reschedule...for 8 days. Then I received a call the next week that they are coming...onWednesday. When the repair guy came, he seemed confused and spent a lot of time on the phone. After two hours he told me that he had to order a part which would be slivered to me. Then he scheduled me for ...next available...7 days. The parts promptly arrived. The next repair guy come out as scheduled. He too seemed confused and indicated this was the first time he worked on this model. He spent a while on the phone and determined that the first guy ordered the wrong part. He ordered the NEW part, and scheduled me for...next available...8 days. The day before the appointment we received an automated message asking us to call and reschedule. When we called we were advised that the part was back ordered and they would call us when. The part was available. A few days later we received an automated message asking us to reschedule again. We called and were advised next available was...8 days. We advised that we were NOT going to take any more time off from work and asked for a SATUrDAY appointment. The lady on the phone said...you want an appointment on a weekend? Are you kidding?... Anyway, she DID make one for today. And advised us the part had been delivered to us. When we go home we called them to advise the part was NoT here. They said it was...we said it was not...you know how that goes. Anyway, they are now checking with UPS to find out where our parties s...and we still do not have our problem fixed. By the way, during the course of all this we did call the Lowes store. A very nice asst manager said she would follow up on this door us the day after our problem was supposed to be fixed...we did get a call front a call center asking about our service experience, we advised as above. They indicated they would personally check on the status of the part and get back to us...within 5 - 7 days. We have not heard back from the since. So much for follow through. We are now waiting for A&E to call us back and advise where the part is...with the expectation that they will then reschedule....next available....8 days.... What would YOU do at this point?

I think I would call Sears since A&E is owned by them.

Lowes in Franklin Park, Illinois - Failure to maintain appointment time and warrant service warranty.

My complaint is against LOWES SERVICES and their service provider ALL STAR APPLIANCE. ALL STAR APPLIANCE did not honor the appointment time schedule and when confronted about the failure this company canceled the appointment and their response to my complaint was; the service was completed and could not schedule another service call because the service request number 72097037 was completed. Their solution was for me to hire another service technician to repair my appliance and then I would be reimbursed, I know my warranty will be voided if I have someone else service my appliance. I had been a customer at LOWES for years however now that I need the warranties to cover my appliances I am not getting the warranty coverage I paid for and the service companies they contracted are rude and UNPROFESSIONAL.
