I ordered 2 chrome wire shelving units for next day delivery. after the emails from UK mail and Bigdug saying there was a possible delay in the delivery, no one at either company really knew what was going on. long story short - the shelves were a foot shorter than the ones i ordered, the supporting poles were a foot higher, and the mallet to assemble the shelves went missing; took 3 deliveries over course of 5 days to get all the right pieces. Bigdug customer service were very apologetic, but my advice: support your local DIY store. it will be a lot faster and a lot less frustrating
Initially could have been put off by the website which was pushy, cluttered and in many ways offers too much choice . However, once I'd waded through all the options and selected something that looked like it would suit our needs no complaints whatsoever. The product arrived on time was relatively easy to assemble and appears to be up to the claims advertised. Impressed by service as rubber feet were missing on one unit and replacements arrived by post after a single short phone call the next day
I have used big dug before and found that they had great products for sorting out my garage storage problems. Even when there was an issue with one or two items they simply went me new replacement items without quibbling.
Extremely fast delivery and excellent communication. Good quality products too. The Really Useful storage boxes I ordered arrived with damaged lids although these were replaced without question the very next day. Will certainly use BiGDUG again and will recommend to others.
My order was due for delivery on Tuesday, no show by UK Mail, tracking web site just said 'delayed'. Order arrived 3:30 on Wednesday but due to poor packaging several parts were missing, contacted Bigdug, parts were promised for next day, received email from UK Mail saying delivery would be between 10:50 and 11:50 it actually arrived at 12:30 but there were still some missing parts, contacted Bigdug again, final parts received 10:15 Friday. Most of my week has been spent waiting in for deliveries, I have far bettrr things to do withmy time, if the warehouse staff had wrapped and packed these adequately in the first place the whole situation could have been avoided. Apart from that the shelving is very good and easy to assemble.
I purchased some storage racking at £49 per item and later received a phone call to say if was priced incorrectly and should have been £450 per item !!! They offered it me at £299 however I declined and therefore the order was cancelled
Although only a small order for home DIY, finding and ordering from the website was very easy. Delivery was quick and convenient and although a small item ( 4 bench feet) was missing. A phone call and next day delivery completed the order without a hitch. Very satisfactory all round.
Website is good BUT when one comes to order it is tricky to add extras without having to stat al over again. Having ordered, I accept that due to non-availabilty one item wasn't available. A phone call promising to refund the cost was promptly followed by a credit to my card - well done! Bizarre email from UKmail on expected delivery day prompted me to telephone them. On calling I was asked where the goods were as they didn't have anything to deliver! Suggested they might con act the supplier rather than the end user! Next day my goods duly arrived - twice!. Instructed by BigDug to decline second delivery - but delivery driver wouldn't do that, left and returned about 2hrs later to collect the duplicate delivery!. Next day I checked items and found one time missing - promptly delivered next day. Other issue then was I had no instructions on constructing the shelf unit. Website and PDF download came to he rescue! Also the shrink wrap was extremely difficult to remove - Stanley knife struggled with thickness of some of the plastic used. So a few gripes, but the goods are of good quality and fit the bill - Thank you. I will use you again some day!
Have used Big Dug before. All deliveries arrived on time or early. Product was of excellent quality. However the connectors ordered and paid for were not included in the delivery. Phoned and handled quickly - came next day. Then decided I needed to exchange some if delivery for a more robust set of shelving. Phoned and no problem with return of items I wanted to exchange. New goods arrived on time and return goods collected on time. However once again there was something missing from the delivery - phoned and should be here tomorrow. Apologies from staff on phone - but still inconvenient to wait a further 3 days to complete the project. So apart from short deliveries, twice, product and service was very good
We are delighted with the shelving we bought for our garage - it's solid, well made and not too hard to assemble. Our initial order contained 5 six shelf units so £30 didn't seem too bad for postage especially given it arrived in 11 heavy awkward packages. Unfortunately the delivery company, UK Mail told us the shelves would be delivered on Friday. Nothing arrived so on chasing we we're told they wouldn't be arriving that day. Persistence and 2 phones calls resulted in them being delivered on Saturday rather than the following week.
We then placed a second order for storage boxes and a mallet. Once again the postage turned out to be £30 for what turned out to be 2 regular shaped and relatively light boxes. This seems overly expensive. At least that time they we're delivered on the day stated.
My order arrived without the rubber mallets I'd ordered, so putting the shelving together meant going down to a local hardware store and buying more. I was in a rush so this was very inconvenient. One of the items I'd ordered was the heavy duty trolley and when screwing in the handle to the base, the nut came out completely. It was very badly soldered on. When I finally got around to putting the shelving together, none of the metal boltless connections slotted in without first getting a screwdriver and forcing the tabs open further. Again, this cost more time and made the whole process a lot longer than it had to be.
