Lowes - Carpet Nightmare

Resolved: Lowes in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - Mixed Experience

4.6
Details

Update by user Jul 05

Since this initial “surprise”, I have checked other retail big box sellers and the same restrictions appear to be in effect. Accepting this limitation, buyers should be completely informed of this and can plan for the additional cost and do not open any connecting items.

However, I did not find this similar restriction with two local stores on delivery installation. It was strongly suggested to have new hoses, dryer power cord and non-plastic venting. Perhaps my situation was unique because I had recently replaced the various components from Lowes when remodeling the laundry room and to rebuy made no sense. I went back to my local Lowes and found them willing to work with me.

Again the issue is with the delivery/install process, outside service. Lowes gave me the needed 4” extender for the dryer and I declined the zero clearance venting. I went home installed the power cord, reversed the dryer door and inserted the vent. Unsure if a return call from the delivery/install would be made despite Lowes efforts.

Lowes again provided me a new set of hoses for the washer. Identical to the ones installed that was only 2 months old. A follow up call was made by another delivery/install team. They tried to hook up the washer, unsuccessfully.

The previous washer was 19 years old, a Whirlpool and used an anti-siphon connection at the stand pipe. The replacement GE would not seal/connect at the standpipe. They recommended a straight replacement standpipe. In discussion they had no awareness of having a trap to prevent sewer gas from entering the home.

It was obvious that their knowledge was very limited.

Told thanks and terminated the visit. I called a local plumber who successfully addressed the standpipe hook up.

I am taking this opportunity to share my recent experience with the purchase of major appliances, washing machine and electric dryer from Lowe’s. Reflecting on A Tale of Two Cities, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.” Lowe’s has a very extensive selection of major appliances, basically all the major brands and the pricing structure is either equal to prevailing market sector competitors or at a saving through a sale and/or promotion. A visit to my local store, Bensalem, PA provided us a comprehensive inventory for inspection and selection. The sales associate was knowledgeable and helpful in narrowing down based on our needs and criteria on technology. We were advised that the delivery would include installation through a 3rd party vendor and that Lowe’s discounted appliance parts with the major appliance parts. I advised that my washing machine hoses were bought at this store and was less than two months old. EASTMAN 2-Pack 6-ft L 3/4-in Hose Thread Inlet x 3/4-in Hose Thread Outlet Stainless Steel Washing Machine Connector (Model # 98506). There was no indication that this would be and subsequent install issue. I purchased a new Utilitech 3-Prong Gray Dryer Appliance Power Cord (Model # UTD100306) for the electric dryer and advised I have a zero clearance issue and am using a Lambro 24-in to 41-in Adjustable Periscope Dryer Vent (Model # L3006) previously purchased at this store and visual inspection indicates it is in perfect condition. Again I was not advised the 3rd party vendor would not install the electric dryer without the purchase of a new dryer vent. The appliances were purchased on 5/30/2019 with delivery scheduled on 6/3/2019. Today has been a major consumer snafu with the delivery hassle, failure to install, unsuccessful telephone conversations with the 3rd party delivery service and a return trip back to the local store seeking a resolution, short of returning the appliances. The delivery persons inspected the install location and immediately took exception with the dryer vent, despite inspection that it was clean in perfect working order. The next issue was with the relatively new stainless steel hoses. I even showed him the previous SS hoses sitting on my work bench. Not acceptable based on his instructions and contact with the delivery service office. He then indicated I needed another part, a Lambro 4-in Dia Aluminum Dryer Vent Extender (Model # L5003), because of the dryer offset on the back. I offered to drive over the local store and get the piece 10-15 minutes. Not acceptable because I wanted to use the existing dryer vent. Recognizing, I was unable to reason with delivery an interim request was made to install the electrical wire and reverse the door panel from left to right: to right to left. I would go to Lowe’s secure vent extender and complete the hook up. Again this was totally unacceptable to the 3rd party delivery service. Similarly I requested that they attach the drain hose to the washer and I would screw on the hoses. Again this was not acceptable. They started to “throw” the appliances back into the truck despite at least a dozen times my request to bring them into the house. Only after a major confrontation the appliances were brought into the house without installation. This is a WARNING to any potential customers that are contemplating a major appliance purchase. I found Lowe’s to have an excellent selection of products, knowledgeable sales associates, and very competitive pricing. But the delivery/install service is GROSSLY flawed. A review of the Internet reveals ongoing issues with Lowe’s 3rd party service. The reality is that Lowe’s has to find a new delivery/install service to remain viable in a competitive big box market place. Potential buyers should be aware of Appliance Delivery, Installation and Haul Away and the restrictions imposed on the “free service” https://www.lowes.com/l/appliance-delivery-haulaway.html?searchTerm=appliance%20delivery Common sense does not come into play, throwing away effective items, and incurring additional costs to satisfy the 3rd party delivery/installation insurable risk concerns. These add on cost is part of the purchase price when comparative shopping. Even more interesting is the 3rd party vendor’s position the parts must be in an unopened packaging to be considered new. How this is resolved remaining to be determined.

It's an issue of liability. They have no real Idea of how old hoses and vents are.

If they used the hoses and vents that were in place and a problem with them arose all too many consumers would want to hold them responsible for damages.

By using new components there is no question if a problem comes up. Blame the legal system for their reluctance to use parts they didn't provide.

Lowes in Greensburg, Pennsylvania - Lowe's is NOT dependable!

1.0
Details
In Feburary, 2019 I paid Lowe's for new carpeting. Several weeks later, they sent out a very dirty and unkempt crew to install it. The crew did a very poor job of installation, leaving noticeable seams and ragged edges. One of the installers ruined my vacuum cleaner by overfilling it. When I complained, Lowe's promised to redo the carpeting and let me choose another. In the meantime, problems came up between Lowe's and their installers, (United Installers). This has continued for over 5 months, and they still have not installed my carpeting. Lowe's told me that they will contact me as soon as they have new installers, which should have occurred 10 days ago, but no word as of now. Don't buy carpeting from Lowe's!!!!!!!

Lowes helped push LG into getting a repair person out here. They were in touch to make sure it was completed.

That's about it. I have always bought from privately owned Appliance stores who care about what they sell and I will return to this practice!

You purchased a product that has a manufacturers warranty. If you would bother reading the warranty you would find that the manufacturer will REPAIR the refrigerator not replace it.

It will also tell you to contact the manufacturer for that repair, not the retail store.

It doesn't matter where you bought it, you won't find any retail store that is going to give you a refund on a 3 month old refrigerator. Your expectations are totally unrealistic.

Lowes in Warrington, Pennsylvania - Lowe's don't price match their own company price

Lowes - Lowe's don't price match their own company price
Lowes - Lowe's don't price match their own company price
I bought a light fixture at Lowe's in Northeast for $99.99 and they sent me to the other Lowe's in Warrington because I needed two of them. I had to travel 15 miles and cashier charged be $30 more. So I showed the receipt for the exact same light I purchased at other store. I even showed her the picture of the sample light on display with $99.99 price tag on. They said they Lowe's don't price match even with their own company prices. I couldn't believe what I heard. They wouldn't even bothered to call supervisor. I had to pay $129.99 + tax for the 2nd light..

Lowes in Richland, Pennsylvania - Preventative Maintenance Reimbursement Agreement

I purchased a lawn tractor with the above Preventative Agreement. The store employee said the oil and filter which needs to be changed after the first 10 hours would be reimbursed after filling and submitting the proper forms. This was done and I was told that the oil and filter are not covered under the agreement. If this happened to you contact the store manager about reimbursement.

You are in a big store. Did you bother asking anyone where it is stocked?

If you don't ask, you may be in the same situation at other big box stores. I suggest you go to a store like ACE where someone will take you to it.

Lowes in Hermitage, Pennsylvania - Warranty issue.

3.8
Details
I purchased a Samsung refrigerator and the 5 year warranty from Lowe’s. The refrigerator had been returned without use and placed in scratch and dent section due to a few scratches near door handles. The sale sign said “ no issues “ and because it had never been used they said I could purchase Lowe’s extended warranty, which I did. The product was delivered to the church for which I had purchased it. As soon as the refrigerator had been plugged in for a few minutes the door alarm began and continued. I called Lowe’s to get the alarm fixed but they told me the warranty was not valid on the product because it was being used by a church (business). My complaint is that the store knew I was purchasing for a church but did not mention that the warranty would not apply and that once the church plugged it in and put something in it, it was now considered used and no one could purchase the extended warranty on a used product. We are returning the refrigerator to Lowe’s and they are giving us a full refund. However, I am upset that they sold me a refrigerator, at a good price, that had issues they were unwilling to fix, and now a store warranty is useless. Is there any recourse for something like this?

Yes, the next Tim e you purchase a product take time to read the warranty BEFORE you purchase the product. Many consumer products have warranties that cover the product for residential use but if it is used for commercial purposes the coverage goes away or is decreased. Don't take a salespersons word for what is covered by the warranty as they may not be totally accurate in what they tell you.

PEOPLE WHO BUY EXTENDED WARRANTIES ARE `USUALLY "A FEW FRIES SHORT OF A HAPPY MEAL" BEST JUST TO PUT THE MONEY AWAY IN THE BANK UNTIL WHEN OR IF YOU EVER NEED IT, INSTEAD OF PURCHASING A WARRANTY THAT THE SCAMSTERS WILL REFUSE TO HONOR!

All these big box stores like Lowe's use self-employed outside contractors to do things like fence installation and other construction projects. Therein lies the problem: Lowe's needs to keep the cost down and the less they pay for installation the better for Lowe's.

There are many local fence companies you can contract with to do the job and since they are local and depend on referrals will usually do a much better job than some unknown installer hired by Lowe's. That's just the way it is.

Never go thru a big box company for any construction project. Hire someone on your own.
