My wife and I just purchased our first home and furnished our entire home through Leon's. All the furniture & Appliances (Approx 20k). The issues started right after the purchase was made and just snowballed. First thing we noticed was an appliance warranty was added to our bill for almost $800 which we never asked for. It took about 3 calls to have that reserved.
The next issues started on our first delivery. We provided the measurements for all door ways and was ensured by sales that all our furniture and appliances would fit. When they brought the appliances over they realized the fridge was to tight to get through the door. They had to take the fridge back, which left us with no fridge.
We went in to choose another fridge, and was told the fridge would not be ready for 3-4 weeks.
When we started examining the furniture that did get into the house we noticed the patio furniture chair was missing a leg. Called leons, was told they would send one to us in 5-6 weeks.
Dishwasher that was provided was also damaged. When we called leons we were told to contact Samsung, that after it was delivered it was no longer Leon's responsibility. We argued with Leons for a few days and was able to get them to bring a new dishwasher. We also made arrangements for them to remove all the old appliances from the house and bring them to the garage.
When the delivery people arrived with the new dishwasher we advised them that they need to remove the old appliances to the garage. They told us that was not on the work order and they were not going to do it. I called leons and the manager who organized the arrangement asked to speak with them. They refused to speak with him and slammed the door in my face and walked out of the house.
After they left the house we told Leons what happened and they said they would arrange for an outside private "Company" to come remove the remaining products. The owner of the company called me Sunday morning around 10am saying that he would be there soon to remove the appliances and asked me if I could help him remove the appliances, because he didnt want to "get anymore guys" to help with the job (I'm assuming so he could pocket all the money). I told him that I wouldnt be able to do that. I then asked him if he could give me a timeline of when he would be coming because I had somewhere to be at 2pm. He said rudly "I will be there soon!" and hung up the phone. 3 hours later, still no one at my house. I called him back asking where he was. Again he said "I told you I will be there soon, give me 20 mins. An hour went by and still no one. I called him back, told him I had to leave and asked to reschedule. He told me to contact leons and figure it out.
I contacted leons and they told me they would have him come back the next day around 5pm. Next day at 5 pm i contacted him. told him what exactly needs to be removed and asked him what time he would be arrving. He again told me he would be there soon (without giving me a time) and also stated "That I better be home this time! not like yesterday".
He showed up at 9:30 pm with one other guy. As soon as he entered the house he came in with an attitude and was visibly upset. As he started to remove the furniture he became more and more aggressive. Yelling that he is "not getting paid enough for all this work! " and that no one told him this is what he had to do. I even cleaned out my fridge and removed the doors to make it a bit easier for him. After he removed the appliances he then told me that he is not going to bring in the fridge that he already did to much work and hes not getting paid enough. He told me to contact Leon's and "Figure it out". I told him that I completely emptied my fridge and removed the doors. And I need that fridge in the house now. He got visibly angry again, argued with me for awhile and eventually went out to get the fridge. This time not even removing his shoes or putting on shoe covers to enter the house, and it was raining.
In his frustration trying to remove the appliances he damaged my walls as well as my door. As per the pictures below.
Never in my life have I experienced such unprofessional behavior from a company. Let alone a company like Leon's, which is one of Canada's biggest furniture stores. I would like all damages repaired and I believe some type of reimbursement is in order. Moving into your first home is supposed to be a fun, exciting and memorable experience. Leons has ruined that and taken that experience away from us. It has been truly beyond stressful.
