    This is the second time I've posted about this. The second time I've ordered from Screwfix.ie
    The second time it hasn't arrived. Ordered on the 1st of june and its still not here.

    Don't order from them unless you want to wait bloody ages.a disgrace of an operation.

    I gave them the benefit of the doubt the second time and again I've been screwed.

    Screwfix.ie my arse. Their stuff is coming from England and i don't give a rats arse where they are registered etc they should not be allowed to have .ie on the end of their web address
    .ie to me means 99 times out of 100 it's being shipped from within Ireland.

    That's nice. You know they legally have up to 30 days to deliver under the Consumer Rights Directive? It has only been 17...

    I didn't know that. 30 days another joke.

    Their Click and Collect service is very swift. I've often ordered as I got into the car and it was ready when I arrived. Once I ordered from the car park outside and walked straight in to pick it up!

    I've placed 5-6 orders click and collect this year, ranging from a bulky cooling fan to a plaster cutting knife. Always ready in less than 5 minutes.

    Had to return a faulty item after 4 months and the swapped it there and then no hassle.

    Took two months for an online delivery as it's coming from the UK. The issue is the courier. It took 2 weeks to arrive once in Dublin if I remember correctly. Can't remember what courier it was, not one of the usual suspects.

    I do think companies need to be transparent about shipping from the UK though.

    Having a .ie domain means nothing of the sort.

    I ordered Thursday last week and it was delivered on Monday afternoon.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,743 ✭✭✭✭Dav010


    Ordered a few bits over the years, never had an issue, all delivered within a few days.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,817 ✭✭✭Darc19


    There are many Irish companies with a .co.uk website. I have one myself.

    Screwfix do ship from the UK and it can take a couple of weeks.

    But they are planning a huge number of stores here. Naas and Newbridge are opening soon

    Yup I've done it myself it worked fine as well. Should have done it this time.

    But this as i said is the second time they've messed up an online order for delivery.

    I Rang them today and they said they literally don't know where it is so a refund is being issued.

    Got my order three times :pac:


  • Registered Users Posts: 744 ✭✭✭Kewreeuss


    Screwfix. Are they really necessary? Aren’t there enough companies already selling the same stuff here?

    Is the online ordering the issue or the actual delivery service?

    My local Woodies have a very limited selection of stuff. They've been out of stock of any miscellaneous tools I've needed such as a 30cm+ drill bit, plaster knife, saws even a wardrobe rail. I've gone to Screwfix multiple times this year because of it.

    Woodies been alright for a few house or garden bits like rakes, grass seed, washing line etc but not much else.

    Yes, good choice at a good price.

    Did your first order get cancelled? Have you contacted them for an update?

    FYI, if you move to a 'smart' meter electricity plan, you CAN'T move back to a non-smart plan.
