Hard to find such a personal service on the internet.. it's clear that this is a retailer with history that just expanded into the virtual space. Top notch!
I have been really impressed with Havens. I was kept informed about the status of my order and the time and date of the delivery. My order was delivered exactly when they said it would be within the hour specified. Unfortunately, one of the plates was broken. They were very apologetic when I phoned and sent out a replacement by first class delivery that same afternoon. I would thoroughly recommend Havens!
I ordered a wedding gift for some friends and the package turned up as if I'd packed it myself. Everybody concerned was very impressed - the gift, the delivery, the packaging and the tracking information were all perfect.
I ordered a Waterford Crystal Ship's Decanter as a retirement gift (Thursday) and thought I had clicked on the express delivery for the next morning (Friday). However when I received the confirmation of the order I realised I hadnt.
I was imperative that it was delivered on the Friday as I live abroad and a colleague who was in the UK at the time was flying back on the Saturday and the plan was for her to bring it back.
I couldnt get through on the phone lines so emailed the MD directly and explained the situation. He immediately upgraded the order, checked it was in stock and kept me updated of the order status even giving me the name of the Dispatch Manager. Exact times of delivery were given by the courier (even the name of the driver) and were spot on!
Being in the Service industry (International Airline) I thought this was an exceptional service. The personal touch goes a long way.
It arrived beautifully gift wrapped, with a hand written tag.
Thank you so much
PS Our colleague loved it!
I ordered the products a while ago, but they had a delay in the products reaching them, but kept me up to date at all times. because I was away until the 23rd May, I asked if they could be delivered after my return. When I got home, I received an e-mail saying they would be delivered on the 24th May, and that I could track the items on the 24th, even down to the 1 hour delivery slot. My delivery slot was between 11-12 o'clock, and they arrived at 11.20! They were well packaged and no breakages, as all the items were china items. Would recommend this company to anyone.
Extremely pleased with the whole process from ordering, advice and delivery. Requested items gift wrapped and they were, professionally. Delivery when stated.
Properly and securely packaged. Thank you.
I have been looking for these cups and saucers in the shops with no luck. I looked on line and found several suppliers but Havens description of the sizes of the cups and saucers allowed me to get exactly what I wanted. Delivery was amazingly quick - the next day. In fact so quick that I hadn't even looked at my Emails to see that Havens were keeping me updated with progress of the order. Certainly a customer focussed company.
We ordered 3 sets of dinnerware but only 1 was in stock. We received a call immediately to advise that it would be a week to get the other 2 sets. True to there word all 3 sets arrived together as advised. Excellent after sales service. Thank you very much. A satisfied customer.
They were very good from start to finish. The products are of a very high quality. They let you know exactly where you are in the process, emailing you when the goods have been shipped, texting you so you know when and roughly what time they would arrive. I liked the card slipped in addressed to me. It gave a very personal finish.
I was extremely impressed with the customer service. Danielle rang me straight away when there was a problem with the stock but quickly came up with a solution. Nothing was too much trouble and the arrangements for delivery were faultless. I won't buy glasses from anywhere else again
Unfortunately, I have not had a good experience. I ordered 5 items, to be delivered to my London office. I am based in India and was travelling to London 2 weeks after I placed the order. After 2 weeks, neither did the package arrive nor any communication. When I wrote to find out, I was told that only 2 out of the 5 items were available. I don't know why they could not give me that information in time? To cut the long story short, those 2 items were sent after I had left London. I am back in India now and my items are lying in my office in London. Poorly handled.
Very much a modern company selling fine quality product blessed with "old fashioned" standards of delivery and service. A very pleasant shopping experience throughout, highly recommended.
I've had Maxwell Williams plain white series for over 10 years. I bought my set when I lived in Australia. So now that I'm in the UK, I looked for a reputable place to order more pieces to round out my collection now that we are entertaining more.
When they arrived, everything arrived well-packed and in good condition. Very sturdy products that I'll use for years to come.
Thank you for such a wonderful product line.
I have never been bothered to write a review before but I felt that it was a must this time. Havens is without a doubt the best online retailer I have ever come across. Not only was I able to buy a product at the cheapest price I could find, but, I was able to have it delivered on my day off work with no waiting around all day for the delivery. The emails and texts keeping you updated of what's happening with your order and the delivery company used was fantastic. I was able to push back the super, fast delivery date to a day that was more convenient for me and was informed on the day of my allocated 1hour delivery time slot. My order was delivered at the beginning of this slot. All in all Havens delivered exceptional customer service. I will definitely recommend to friends and family and whoever else will listen. I look forward to purchasing further items from this company who obviously cares about it's customers. Thank you guys, keep up the good work.
I was worried that the item may get broken but my mind was put to rest as the packaging was beyond my expectations.
Extremely pleased with the level of service...answered telephone query immediately and most helpfully and dealt with the order very quickly
Products arrived safe and sound, well packaged and as expected.
I would definitely recommend and wouldn't hesitate to used Havens again.
On 13th May I ordered 5 packs of Dartington glasses (two in each pack), hopefully to arrive in time to take some of them to relatives on 23rd May. Havens could not have been more helpful. They were awaiting a delivery but had three packs in stock.They offered to send those off immediately and the others later when new stock arrived. The three packs duly arrived on 15th May beautifully individually gift wrapped with tags, free of charge, and carefully packed. I had e-mails advising me every step of the way, even to the actual time the package would be delivered. i was very impressed and would certainly use their excellent online site in the future.
Havens have been great from first placing the order to receiving the items. They kept in touch with me on the status of my order, ensuring it was delivered when I needed it and they came beautifully gift wrapped saving us a job prior to our wedding! We wished we had bought all our wedding gifts from you. The customer service really is excellent and I would not hesitate to recommend your company in the future. Thank you.
We placed our order on 18th April. It finally arrived on 15th may. We recognise that you are dependent on your suppliers but this does appear to be a very long time to wait for cups and saucers.
After receiving your email advising us of delivery we contacted you to change not the date but the venue . You confirmed the Change.
We then saw the delivery being made to the first location. When we contacted you your response was that you had no knowledge of the change . We sent you a copy if your email to us.
We did rearrange the delivery but have heard nothing from you since.
The follow up for customers after something like this s not very good
I was totally satisfied with my order from Havens and particularly impressed with the level of customer service. Besides being of excellent quality, the glasses arrived on the expected date and on time. I was kept updated with the progress of my order and even received an email telling me the hour in which to expect delivery and the name of the driver! Everything was well packaged and the gift wrapping was expertly done. I would not hesitate to use Havens again or to recommend others to do so.
I have used Havens on more than one occasion, and they have been polite, friendly and willing to help. Any queries I had were dealt with quickly. Parcels were well-packaged and the delivery slot was one of the most efficient I have seen. Thank you. I would recommend this company and I will be using them again.
I was looking for some reasonably priced crystal wine glasses, and I found them at Havens. The products are pretty and not overly priced, a concise and clear site to chose from, the service is brillant and I received my goods 3 days afterwards. I will definitely purchase from Havens again.
After trying to find a china coffee set through various search engines, I was directed to the Havens site. There I found a Thomas China coffee set, which had a charming design and the price was within my budget for a present for members of the family. They in turn were delighted to receive a delightfil gift.
The parcel was sent to them post free and suitably wrapped.
Ordered a present for my parents and was delivered within 24 hours having paid for standard delivery service. Was able to check for the predicted time of delivery in the morning and was delivered within the scheduled time slot. Brilliant service and present arrived safely. My mum loved the vase.
Sending a present from France to a friend in the UK couldn't have been easier with Havens of Westcliff. The online service was smooth and trouble-free. The glasses I bought are beautiful and also competitively priced. Email confirmation was prompt and delivery speedier than I imagined. Friend very happy with her present. Definitely recommend.
