My order never arrived!

I ordered a birthday present from sobaby.co.uk back in July and it still has not arrived. I've made loads of phone calls, but can't get through. Sent emails and did get a reply to one saying goods were delayed. After about 6 weeks I cancelled the order, but that was ignored. I've since written more emails which have been ignored. DON'T BUY FROM THIS WEBSITE.

Delivery in a week and text message the day before to say it was coming

Ordered a baby towel, was in stock and arrived in a week.
Price was best I found online and delivery was quick. Nice getting a text to say item was on its way but would have been better if they'd said who the text was from!
Seem to have some nice products here, I ordered Coocoose baby towel for a friend with new baby (apron style towel with poppers so towel doesn't hang on floor while giving bath) but also noticed some Boon weaning spoons which look great too and which I've not seen elsewhere.

Low price and quick delivery

Ordered an Oyster buggy and carrycot from SoBaby which had a 6 week lead time so expected a delay but it was all delivered within 2 weeks. This is the second time i have ordered from them and both times i have been pleased with service and goods. Will use again.

Don't do it you might as well chuck your money away

Ive read the reveiws after I ordered a musty £450 buggy. Wish read before, well didn't on this occasion, so not to worry. By consumer law I cancancel my order within 7days, I am 5days in and they havent replied o any of my emails, I cannot get them on the phone. Im sending a letter by recorded delivery tomorrow 23/07/10. To cover myself so they can't wriggle out of it, then I will be getting on to trading standards, and my credit card.
DONT ORDER please don't bother!!

AVOID THIS COMPANY AT ALL COSTS

I ordered an orange petite star zia pushchair in August 2009. After 10 days I contacted them to check on the dispatch of my order and was informed that the orange was not in stock. I then cancelled the order and was told that my money would be refunded asap.

Well it is MAY 2010 and I am STILL WAITING!!!! After numerous phone calls and e-mails I took the matter up with my credit card company. I was told by them to write So Baby a letter requesting my refund as with most companies they experience that normally does the trick but once again So Baby in true style has chosen to IGNORE my written request!!

I am not sure what to do next but I am most definately a very unhappy online shopper!! AVOID THEM PLEASE

been waiting 6 weeks for refund

I ordered a buggy from so baby at the end of february, 7 days after placing order chased the delivery to be told it could take 30 days. This item was a in stock item and according to their delivery should only take 7 days. I cancelled the order on 5th March and requested a refund. It is now 22nd april and I am still chasing my refund. They have a lovely website with lovely things but the true reality is that this company is a bunch of fraudsters who will not send you your goods as stated in their delivery T&C's and then won't refund your money.

Do not confuse this company with SO BABY ORGANICS

I would like to point out that the organic baby food company so-baby-co.uk has no connection whatsover with the SOBABY of Andover. They specialise in 100% organic baby meals and pride themselves on their customer service

rip off. these people are nothing better than thieves

After being told item was out of stock we chose to have a refund. The money was not returned and after many emails they contacted to say it was being processed. The refund has never arrived and all contact is being ignored. This is just plain and simple theft! There is a warning on mumsnet about this company. It also seems suspicious to me that this sate has so many bad reviews but there are a few random 5 star incredible experiences thrown in. Mmmmmmm? Are these great reviews a fraudulent response fron sobaby?

FAST DELIVERY AND BEST PRICE

I had no issue with SoBaby - i ordered a changing bag and recieved it next day - it was also the best price i could find. Will certainly use again.

not worth the saving they offer

the money you save by using this company is not worth the long delivery times and the hassle of having to chase them for your order.

i ordered two items. rang when i didn't receive them in the stated time. received the 1st the following week and never got the second. after over 3 months of waiting i requested an alternitive item but only if they had it in stock to send out straight away, otherwise i wanted a refund. it took two weeks to reply to my email after the new year but they did send out the new item and i got it the next day.

AVOID THIS COMPANY!!!

I ordered a skip hop changing bag in November, the website indicated that it was in stock. A week later I received an email to say it would come in stock in early December. None of my emails have been responded to and you are unable to leave a voicemail. I have put the item into dispute with my credit card company. I bought another bag from someone else. Then 2 days ago I got an email to say it was being shipped! I responded to say that I did not want the bag, as I had clearly indicated in my previous (unanswered) emails. No answer, of course. They tried to deliver it today while I was out and I have asked the courier company to return it to them whilst I wait for my money back. Absolutely shocking service, the worst I have ever come across - they just ignore you.

Too little too late!

following my review....How could they do this, avoid, avoid, aviod! I received my changing bag today, over a month since I ordered it! And no communication to let me know what was going on. So thankfully I haven't lost my money and have now received my item. However, I am very disappointed at the very least and would not recommend this company to anyone! Thank goodness I didn't go out there and buy another changing bag! I was so distraught at having lost £50 that I could'd bring myself to.

DO NOT BUY FROM THIS COMPANY UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE !!!!!

I ordered a Skip Hop change bag from them on 20th december and was told it was in stock and would be delivered in 7 - 10 days and surprise surprise they are yet to deliver my bag. Have contected them by phone only to be told by a machine that you could only contact them by e-mail. Have sent them 4 e-mails and they haven't responded to a single one. This company is nothing but a thief as they have taken my money and given me nothing in return. My loss of money is no where near some of the other reviwers but i still feel extremely angry and upset that a company like this is allowed to trade on the internet. I will never buy from anyone else other than amazon from now on. I have contacted trading standards and was advised to send a recorded delivery letter asking for a refund. By law if you haven't received anything by 30 days you are entitled to a full refund, but this sounds like it isn't happening. Will be contacting watchdog. Realy wish i had checked reviews before i bought from this company. I am not even giving the company one star but you have to, to be able to write a review. This company deserves a minus star rating and to be shut down immediately.

Needs shutting down!!

I ordered 3 months ago, i got a email 5weeks later to say new stock in soon and guess what i have received nothing, there is a answer phone message when i ring and they are not answering emails, how can a company take money in this way and benefit on babies and mums losses, Awful !! i am contacting watch dog and trading standards, also the main supplier of the product i ordered told me they do not supply sobaby any more as they do not pay their bills

"Rubbish" is being kind.

An example of the worst type of business, the worst type of business owner, and simply a shabby, morally dubious (at best) operation run by uncaring, useless and probably dishonest individuals.

The only contact I've had from them is a confirmation of order on the day I ordered. I have e-mailed many times since, with no response whatsoever, and have repeatedly called, getting through to an answerphone that will not let you leave a message, but tells you to e-mail.

Pathetic. Avoid at all costs. Steer clear. If I could have given zero stars to this company, I would have.

VERY VERY BAD COMPANY - DO NOT USE

I ordered a cotbed 30th November 2009 was told this item was stock. When i tried to telephone them a week later i was told to email which i did several times and to which i had no response. I then did receive an email in late December saying the item had been ordered with Izzywotnot and when they received a consignment no they would let me know. I tried again to email and call to no avail. I then telephoned Izzywotnot to see if an order had been placed by sobaby. They said they hadnt received any orders since October from them.

They are also using a sister company called Big Imagination.co.uk, same address, same telephone no as Sobaby! I telephoned Izzywotnot and asked them if they had ordered the cot under this name and they said they hadn't and they themselves were trying to contact Sobaby and would let me know.

I have been in touch with the consumer helpline, who were very helpful. Apparently you have rights under the Consumer Protection Distance Selling Regulations and are entitled to a full refund within 30 days of you cancelling your order. I am in the process of tring to get my money back.

I am also in the process of reporting them to Trading Standards.

AVOID THIS COMPANY AT ALL COSTS!!!

Awful company

Hi i to have ordered products via the website and also waited and recieved nothing theh found reams and reams of bad press for this company (hindsight is wonderful) i have sent emails which have had no replies and have phoned only to listen to an answer phone so in light of all this i have contacted my local trading standards and will contact watchdog via the bbc i would urge all of you to do the same as if there are enough complaints something will have to be done as one lady has said to be left in the lurch when your due date is imminent is just down right awful not to mention stressful the woman who owns the company is Angela Gordon she has a shop in andover for anyone close enough to visit. you can under the distance sellers regulation acts demand your money back if u have not recieved your order in 30 days worth mentioning to her in an email but the only way to stop ruthless people like this trading is to complain to the right channels u can find your local trading standards (sometimes called consumer dept) by contacting your local council and watchdog can be contacted via bbc website. another customer was told she could not have her order as the owner was on holiday for 2 weeks no doubt with our money good luck all

Absolute Complete Ineptitude

I can't believe that this company is allowed to trade it should be issued with a winding up order! Unfortunately I read the reviews after I had placed my order, I had hoped that maybe I might be one of the small amount of people that actually do recieve the item they paid for....clearly not so far!

I ordered a bloom highchair on the 8th December (plenty of time for an item that was stated as 'in stock' on the website to be delivered for Christmas). SoBaby state on their website that dispatch for in stock items is 7-10 days, so when on the 11th day the status of my order hadn't changed I tried to contact SoBaby. I have tried calling them but they are permanently on answerphone which advises you to email them, I am now on my 6th email and still have had no response from them and no highchair!

As a result of the highchair not being delivered my daughter was unable to spend her first Christmas dinner with us! This has to be one of the worst companies I have had the misfortune of buying from! AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

Also even giving a one star rating to SoBaby.co.uk is far too much in my opinion as if I could I would give a big fat 0!
