b&q are you having a laugh?

(13 Posts)

I've just read the whole bathroom brochure wondering where the prices were expecting they must be at the end and thinking that ridiculous, only to come to the end and Nada! where are they? online? what are they playing at? if I don't know how much it is I can't decide what I want and therefore can't buy it.

I'm incensed. what a waste of an evening!

Don't buy from B&q it would be more than a waste of an evening.... Everything I have ever tried to buy from there has been broken, faulty or missing a bit.
Expensive kitchen tap had the wrong size connectors for the tap, there was no way it could actually be connected to anything took it back to find that the whole batch was wrong. I have hundreds of stories on a similar theme. I keep stupidly thinking that despite the crapness it is quicker to pop into the store than buy online from someone else but the need to continuously take stuff back is proving me wrong.

I have read some other b&q threads I admit...

but I want to compare price really - my plumber has quoted some for us.

annoying gits.

I used to work for them blush. iIRC there is a separate price guide, or there used to be.

The home base bathroom brochure is the same. Complete waste of paper IMO.

Prices do often come in a separate print leaflet though - then it's easier to change that than the full glossy picture brochure when prices change.

Yes, there is a separate price list although I find B&Q price lists so confusing they might as well be in Sanskrit. However, I bought a kitchen from them recently and it all arrived fine. Pick the right assistant in store and go thru it really carefully with them. Mine made sure that everything was picked in store that day and shrink wrapped so it all stayed together for delivery.
I also bought bathroom kit online from plumbworld, following recommendations on here. Not an experience I would ever recommend. In the end I went to my local independent bathroom people (not bathstore etc) and got virtually same price but fab service. I'd try that if I were you.

Brochures come out twice a year, price lists change constantly!

I suspected I missed something! but I practically picked up every leaflet and I'm not going back. stamps foot!

I used to work for B&Q and they usually have a price list separate. However, the quality of the bathrooms are really shoddy and they focus on quantity rather than quality. I brought my bathroom from 4bathrooms because they have a range of different quality bathroom suites which are considerably more cheaper than B&Q

If you have to order it, forget it. You will be fobbed off with endless empty promises. I'd wash in a bucket before i'd buy another bathroom from there.
