Furniture company.
Anybody used them? They have good trust pilot reviews but those are known to be a bit dubious.

Thinking of ordering something quite substantial.

Just checked their Facebook page and it tells me everything. They have almost 2000 followers but the photos and posts only get about 3 likes and NO comments. The reason for that is they delete the negative ones...or don't allow commenting at all as there are literally none. I work in social media...and reliable businesses always leave most comments up.

Their Instagram is the same.

I wouldn't.

Thank you- my gut instinct was telling me no. Their address is quite hard to find too- no showroom even in their home town.

They're probably imported from China....the "office" will be in someone's dining room.

And if they are importing, the 'oak' might not be legal.

I dug a bit more...apparently the furniture is made abroad from old boats... How's that oak then? And company's house lists not many assets. Yet their local newspaper reckon they made a million last year!

@BillHadersNewWife

You do realise that many ships are made from oak?

Yes but these are made form fishing boats.

And that stops them being made from oak?

Hey. Did anyone end up ordering anything from them? I placed an order with them yesterday. Spoke to somebody on the phone before I did go ahead and they seemed really nice and genuine. Will let you know how it goes. Fingers crossed!

Hi @Mums2kids did everything go ok with your order? As I placed an order for garden furniture last week and now feeling a bit worried? I did do some research before ordering looking through trust pilot they seemed like a real company.

We got a bookcase from them, really pleased with it. Very helpful as had to muck them about with delivery dates. Daughter also bought from them.

Website says -
Eleven years later, business was going well but Maaz and Nadeem wanted to create something a little different. To get inspired our founders ventured to India, Vietnam and China. Whilst in India, they discovered reclaimed furniture made from old fishing boats, which is now known as the Harbour Range. This sustainable approach to manufacturing inspired them and has remained a key part of their sourcing process ever since

I made an order with madewithoak. before I even received my order I request to cancel and refund my money. They refused to refund my money. They stated that We can either refund you for your order less the failed delivery charge of £95 + VAT. Can you believe it?? I never hear of charge for the failed delivery.

I ordered a side table from Made with Oak. It was poorly finished. Quality of wood was good.

I get an email from Maaz Umar saying that We can either refund you for your order less the failed delivery charge of £95 + VAT. Can you believe this ?? I never hear of a charge for the failed delivery. Can they do that?

Head office address appears to be searchable. Interesting.....
