Consumer Complaints and Reviews
I enjoyed my first time shopping at Havertys looking for a bedroom set. 1st stop at Havertys, then to Ashely, then to Rooms to Go, then Matress Firm. Plus the online versions. Went back to Havertys to meet up with Tracey **. She was excellent in showing me 'Coastal & Beachie' Light in color to work with the house at Nocatee. I bought the Forest Lane Storage Bed + night stand + dresser in weathered grey.
Promised a delivery on a Friday and all was achieved. Truck and two gentlemen arrived, put the units together not a problem. Turns out that units are very well made, very heavy and solid. Tracey also helped in selecting a good mattress, knew about the construction of the springs-boxes-hybrids and the all foam. Ended up with a Beautyrest Black. Then she pointed out a great recliner - not those big fluffy overstuffed monsters, but a 'Deco Retro' leather with wood arms. I will be going back to see if Tracey can work a deal on a living room and outdoor furniture.
Furniture order not received. I ordered a China Cabinet on 03/21/17... the money was charged to my account. I have never heard a word for Havertys. They advised when I ordered that I would be contacted later for a delivery date. I have never been contacted. I paid $1,340.60 for the China Cabinet.
Beware of their Guardsman protection plan. It's a ripoff. The salesman will promise you the world, but if you ever need to use the protection plan, it's a lengthy and painful procedure to submit a claim. I followed the claim instructions word for word and submitted it online and by mail (they want you to just give up) and never heard from them. 4 months later, I called to check on the claim and after 30 minutes on hold listening to products they're trying to sell you on the phone they told me that the claim was denied because it has to be submitted within 14 days of reporting the damage. I had bought the Havertys Gold 5-year Furniture Protection Plan when I bought my furniture, and it's been 3 years and never used it until now. DO NOT BUY the Guardsman furniture protection plan. You will be throwing your money away!
I went to Havertys in Rogers, Ar today and was displeased with the service. There were three staffers. One of which chilling on a sofa and none of them bothered to give me information. They said "HI" when I came in and then I never heard from them again. I shopped the whole store and no one said anything. I left without anyone noticing. It was a very gloomy atmosphere. No customer service or personality applied from the employees.
Furniture quality is good... for the items I have. If you're okay with getting your items FOUR MONTHS (or more?) after you place an order, by all means shop here. I placed a large order **JANUARY 24th** to be delivered no later than *MID FEBRUARY*. It is NOW *MID APRIL* and two of my items still aren't here, and the date of arrival to the local warehouse is April 28 for one of the missing items and "unknown" for the other (I'm told to expect sometime in MAY).
In late March, they attempted to deliver the sectional I ordered, but it was the MIRROR IMAGE of what I ordered in the store and wouldn't fit in my house. I refused the delivery. (This is after the store came out twice to measure my living room.) They did offer to let me keep/trade out the stuff that wouldn't fit at all. (You know, so I can start making payments on it NOW.) No, thanks, it won't fit, it would be ugly at best and a fire hazard at worst. Of note, the sectional I ordered was not a custom fabric.
Also, one attempt to correct my order resulted in Havertys placing an order for two right-hand ends to my sectional! How does that even make sense?? Who would order *two of the same end*??? And how is it that the CUSTOMER has to catch their error when calling to confirm delivery? THE STAFF DOES NOT LIFT A FINGER TO EXPEDITE THE ORDER - AND THESE ARE ALL THEIR MISTAKES, NOT MINE. There is not another way to put it- they are careless and they seem to have little concern for customers and only care about making orders. Multiple phone calls, nothing but "I'm sorry the process takes so long" and a small order credit that I have yet to receive. My living room is half complete now and it's embarrassing to have people over. Thanks, Havertys - you don't have your stuff together, and now it looks like I don't either to anyone who visits. NOT HAPPY.

I was almost hit by a Havertys driver at 1604 and Green Mountain four way stop. Driver ran through intersection behind car in front. Then laughed and flipped me off. Spoke to several people. Mgr Johnny of that store never returned my call. This is serious. I could have been injured and my passenger. And for this guy to laugh and Flip me off is ridiculous.
I bought this couch about a year and a half ago and it is falling apart with minimal use. I contacted customer service and they were unable to help because it is out of the 1 year manufacturer's warranty and I didn't purchase the extended warranty which from other posts sounds like it wasn't worth it. I only want to help prevent someone else from making the same mistake that I did. Won't ever return.
Years ago Haverty's furniture used to put out beautiful advertisements. I fell in love with the pictures of seemingly high-end furniture and hoped that one day we could afford it. Well, we finally were and when it was time to replace the living room furniture we went straight to Haverty's. We purchased a rather expensive sofa and matching chair. Soon we noticed a distinct fading on both pieces. New seat covers for the sofa were ordered but they were not the same color. They also delivered another chair but that didn't match the sofa. We paid thousands for these two pieces but we will eventually have to replace both within a few years. They wanted to give us a store credit, but I didn't see anything that I liked and the credit would not have covered both a chair and sofa. We would still have lost money. I have never seen the level of fading in such a short time that will eventually get worse. Never again will I set foot in their store again.
I have been waiting on my customer furniture for over 3 months. I have been waiting on samples of my fabric for over 2 months. I have constantly called to see if samples have been shipped and I receive the same response "I am sorry. Thought it was send the last conversation". Really this is so old and I am over the whole experience. No Follow up and No Furniture. Just excuses.
We purchased Prestige Furniture in late 2015, 2 Loveseats and 1 Single Recliner. Just out of the 1-year warranty period we had 2 of the seat cushions come loose from the frames. This condition allows the cushion to collapse into the frame when sat on. Now the leather dye is coming off of the foot cushion exposing the raw leather below. Customer Service told us that the cushions cannot be fixed and I should just redye the area where it's coming off. Poor Quality Furniture... Poor Customer Service. Let me add that we were 30-year customers with Havertys but no longer.
The furniture we purchased for our granddaughter, so far, is fine. Was just delivered Feb 3, 2017. However, when purchasing, we were told that any special sales that come up within 30 days of delivery or free delivery - we would just have to call to get. So I called for the $100 savings on an amount that was within limits and got that - no problem. Then Free Delivery came up and I called for that - they said that I could only get partial because the furniture is no longer on sale??? What does that have to do with Free Delivery? Disappointed by the "fake" sales pitch! They need to explain their policy much better. They told me today that they just try to be nice and help their customers. LOL Get their promotion offers in writing.
Bought this recliner in Sept 2015 and the under manufactory Year warranty. They have been to my house to 4 times. Just as soon as the Manufactory warranty goes out so did the MOTOR. The extended warranty was with (Guardsman). It is now Feb and they told me they couldn't get parts. My expensive chair don't work and neither does either one of these company's 24! HAVERTYS OR GUARDSMAN Don't waste your time or $$$. I let them know I was handicap and the chair was of important assistance to me. OH well... YOU LIVE AND LEARN.
Very disappointed in the time it takes to repair my recliner. The motor went out and the recliner cannot be used for over a week because the leg rest is out. They are not accommodating on timeframe of when they can come. My husband and I both work and cannot take off to be at home at their assigned times in the am. My recliner has sat with the leg rest kicked out because it doesn't work. I was hoping to see a fast result. Very disappointing.
We purchased two leather sofas from Havertys along with the "Gold" protection plan less than two years ago and over that time, the dye in the leather has simply disappeared. They appear as though they are decades old and have been left outside despite being in our living room the entire time. This seems to be the status quo for Havertys as evidenced by the other reviews. They have refused to help and the "Gold" service plan is a complete waste of money. PLEASE save yourself from the hassle and just shop elsewhere.
Spent $8000.00 on bedroom set. Sales staff very pleasant & professional. My wife was home on day of delivery & I told them to call wife’s phone# as I would be out of state. I was walking off jetway from airplane & got call from delivery truck crew very smart & arrogant saying that I didn’t answer my phone & they were leaving. I called them within one minute when I got into concourse. They were smart with me. I told them to cancel order & stick it up their **. At that time my wife was at the gate & let them in. Very cocky & rude delivery crew. Won’t shop there again. Furniture is great though!
I purchased a Payton Leather Recliner Set from Havertys Furniture in Charleston, SC less than a year ago. Within the first 3 months, the color was coming off of the recliner pillow to show an ugly orange color underneath. The color was not peeling, cracking, or flaking, it was simply... disappearing. I called Havertys and they had a technician come to inspect the problem. While at my home, the technician stated that the recliner should be replaced as the color removal appeared to be a manufacturer issue and not environmentally related. He then took pictures of my entire set. When the Customer Service department followed up with a call, they initially stated that the recliner would be replaced based on the technician's findings. I thanked them and then asked about the rest of my set.
Could I expect the same thing to happen to the other 2 pieces of the set as I paid roughly $4K for it and expected a better quality product than that which I apparently had received? In short, had they received similar complaints about this product? My question escalated the issue to management level, so the representative politely asked me to hold while she consulted a manager. A short time later the customer service representative returned to the line to inform me that the manager, who couldn't actually come to the phone at that moment, had reviewed my claim again, and I would need to call the supplemental insurance company as the problem I reported was not related to a manufacturing defect.
I was shocked at this turn of events (especially that a simple question about whether they had received similar complaints in relation to my particular furniture set had totally changed the conversation) and insisted on speaking with the manager myself. I was promised a return call that day which never came. I called back a few days later when I realized no one was going to return my call. The manager I spoke with on that occasion reviewed my call notes, and then referenced a photo the technician had taken at my home that showed an area on one of my sofas that my pet had scratched. The scratch was not related to my complaint of the color coming off of the recliner pillow, but she wanted to lump the colorfastness together with a scratch on a separate piece of furniture although one had absolutely nothing to do with the other.
I literally had to spend an hour on the line with this person, with her wanting to override the technician's finding that the recliner should be replaced, based solely on her viewing the photos taken. I was given every prescribed "excuse" for why the colorfastness had failed in such a short period of time including hair product (my husband uses the chair exclusively and has no hair), cleaning product (I only used what they provided to me), and sunlight (the chair is in the middle of a room and does not face the light source). I persisted in my questioning of the validity of her ruling that my particular complaint was not a manufacturer issue based simply upon her viewing a picture, when she FINALLY slipped up and said that only a certified technician having physically viewed the furniture in person could deem an issue to be a manufacturer defect... and what do you know, mine had done just that.
With the air of DOING ME A FAVOR, she agreed to replace my recliner. She concluded our call with the warning to immediately cover the recliner pillow when I receive the new recliner or the color would likely fail again. This statement appeared to effectively answer my initial question as to whether this furniture set was prone to colorfast failure. To no great surprise, and still less than a year after purchase - I have at least 3 new areas on the sofas where the color is coming off to show an ugly orange color underneath - not, as Harvertys Furniture advertises, any "handsome semi-aniline, top-grain leather," I have ever seen before. This leather furniture is of the poorest quality fabric/finish I have EVER encountered. I have received better quality from wholesale outlets for half the price.
Based upon my previous encounter with the customer service department of Havertys Furniture, I have no expectation that they will stand behind their product. Given that all indications show that the quality of this leather finish is sub par, and that the finish will continue to come off to reveal the horrible orange sub-material beneath it, only one of two options would satisfy my complaint to my satisfaction. I would consider my complaint satisfied with the offer of allowing me to trade in my entire set for its purchase price for a new, non-leather alternative (with the hopes that their actual fabric is better constructed than this "painted" leather offering), or a refund to total at least half my purchase price (which generously accounts for the fact that I have now had the furniture set just less than a year, but would allow me to replace this set with a comparable - but likely superior in quality - set from another vendor).
As I have detailed in this review, I have already spent considerable time being led in verbal circles by this company and do not wish to spend further time in a similar situation. The product that is the leather Payton recliner set is so far below the quality of anything the former company of Havertys Furniture would offer its customers that it should be shameful. At this juncture, I am a former and highly dissatisfied customer.
3 years ago, my husband and I purchased 2 top grain/full leather (?) sofas from Havertys Furniture Va Beach Va. After about 6 months we noticed that the sofa most used was fading on the seat cushions, but not on the back cushions, so I filed a complaint and they replaced the sofas. About 8 months later the same ugly faded thing happened only worse, so they replaced the sofas again. About 8 months into the new sofas... the same thing happened... So we were told that they would send a leather technician out to repair the faded cushions.
The "leather technician", brought with him a magic bag filled with spray paint to recolor the sofas. It's been 1 1/2 yrs, and it is just HORRIFIC TO LOOK AT!! We barely use the second sofa because we don't want it to fade!! I will NEVER USE THIS COMPANY AGAIN AND WILL BE SURE TO SHARE MY STORY ON FACEBOOK FOR MY COMMUNITY TO SEE. Sincerely Disappointed Customer, Shannon **.
After purchasing a sofa, chair and ottoman in 100% leather in Feb of 2014 in the Ft Walton beach, Florida Havertys and paying over 3,000 for the 3 I thought that I had purchased a very good quality living room furniture. It will be paid off in Feb of 2017. Last August I noticed that there was some water on the arm of the chair and wiped it off and the color came off. Also noticed that the same is happening to one of the cushions on the sofa. I called Havertys and told them.
They asked how old it was, they asked if I had gotten the extended warranty and told them "no, I did not." They said "Sorry. We can't do anything for you. If you want someone to come and look at it it will cost you I think 65.00," and then to have it fixed unknown amount. I said "Are you kidding!!! You don't stand behind your product." They said it was hand rubbed color and that is "you rub too hard the color will come off." Another "are you kidding." I told them I didn't rub that hard and the color came right off. So the leather is not dyed and just on the top layer. No wonder all of it is coming off here and there.
Never again will I buy anything from them. They are suppose to be a higher end store, but not so. The prices they charge are higher than normal, but their service is below normal. I have read the other reviews and saw the same problem. I won't recommend them to anyone and tell them not to go to Havertys if they are looking for good quality furniture. With what I paid for the furniture it will be my last purchase and I will just have to live with the way it looks. Thanks for letting me vent!!
We bought a group of oversized couch, loveseat, chair and a half from Havertys. One year later a seam split. Havertys took the whole set back and replaced at full price a year later. Replacement set lasted 25 years and through 7 moves up and down East Coast. Set still looked new and we only sold it because we downsized. We've purchased other furniture since. The quality and service are great. Very patient sales people. No hard sell. Knowledgeable sales people. Havertys sells quality furniture, great service and reasonable prices.
I arrived in MN from CA with almost no furniture. My daughter died after surgery and my small Chevy could not pull a large U-Haul. **'s let me re-furnish my apartment without even asking for ID. They have very nice stuff and reasonable prices. The final item I purchased a month ago was a lift chair. I had a complete knee replacement in July and was having difficulty getting off the couch. They have actually furnished my entire apartment, little by little. If you are looking for a no-pressure furniture store in the Springfield area, this is the place for you. Family owned and operated.
I arrived in Springfield, MN, just over 2 years ago, with my bed and chest of drawers and little else. My daughter-in-law took me to **'s and we asked if they had any used living room furniture in good condition. We went upstairs and I saw a couch I liked and Mr. ** said it came with a swivel chair, a coffee table, and a hexagon table, all for $200.00. He let me pay $50.00 a month and when I paid that off I went for a new small dining room table with 2 chairs. After I had paid that off I got a new bedroom set (Ashley) and finished off with the lift chair. Friendly folks. No pressure sales.
Purchased a patio set and discovered it didn't fit. They let us return it for a full refund. No hassles. Gave us a full refund when we couldn't find anything else we liked. Very easy to do business with, unlike Baer's!
We purchased a new living room suite when we remodeled our home. Bought the Guardsman Gold Protection Plan. One automatic recliner broke at Christmas 2014. They could not fix the recliner so we were sent a new one... When it got there it was a manual recliner and so they took it back the and a month later (March by now) received the recliner. This July 4th, 2016 the other automatic recliner broke and it is Nov. 2016 and I called to check what could be taking so long and the protection plan told me that was only good for one time. "No problem. We hadn't needed it for this side until now," and they told me they had already paid HAVERTY'S FOR A FULL REPLACEMENT OF 2 AUTOMATIC RECLINERS & A CONSOLE WHICH DIDN'T HAPPEN.
Haverty's has furnished me with 2 exchange tickets that looks like we received 3 automatic recliners and a console but WILL NOT furnish a copy of a ticket where we signed for all of these pieces. Now we have a $2500.00 - $3,000.00 furniture set that one side will not work and is stuck in the reclined position. IF YOUR PURCHASE FROM HAVERTY'S WHATEVER JUST DON'T BUY AUTOMATIC ANYTHING. The repairman is a nice qualified guy from Louisiana and will only come to the NE Texas area if he has more than one call in this area.
I purchased the Nevada Sectional. It is very pretty and good quality however when the armless seat is reclined it feels like I am sitting on a bar. There is a large gap between the cushions. It's is very uncomfortable and appears to be a design defect. When sitting for any length of time the lack of support makes my back hurt and I have no back issues. Havertys came out and acknowledges the defect. I have to put a pillow behind me when sitting. They have ordered me new ones that are taking a month to come in. Hopefully, the next ones will be ok.
We bought several rooms of furniture of at Havertys in the last 6 months and they have the worst customer service I've ever seen! The leather couch arm and cushion the leather color is wearing off after less than 6 months. They sent someone out today and then called me and told me they would do nothing because it was done at home. We have done nothing to this couch to make the leather wear off! We also purchased the extended warranty on all the furniture. I could've gotten furniture that lasted longer than this at Walmart! I will never step foot in another Havertys furniture store!!
Buyer beware!!! Purchased a very expensive leather sectional 3 yrs ago. Recently, noticed tears where the leather folds, discoloration of leather, and mechanical problems with the recliners. Talked to customer and found out that they only guarantee their products (including leather) for 1 year. Little or no concern for the buyer. Very poor customer satisfaction. Could not recommend & will never go back.
Purchased this couch and within a short time there was a big discoloration where you place your head on the back, and the seat where I sit most of the time has sagged quite a bit. Warranty doesn't cover anything. Will not return.
We purchased this set in 2011. Had the Guardsman protection planned but cancelled after a year. That was a joke. As you can see in the pictures below, we take care of our furniture. The second picture shows the distinct crack around the backside of the chairs. At least four of the chairs have this crack. The decorative "wood looking" piece on the back is not wood. I called Haverty's and they recommended I call furniture doctors. We have thousands between this set and the matching buffet. We will never buy from Haverty's again.
We found a couch, chair and ottoman on the floor we liked. We ordered the couch in a different fabric. We received after 8 weeks. The fabric was not on smoothly but billowing out on the back of the chair and half. They sent a tech out who said that he will report this problem and most likely I will receive another chair. Later I was called by customer service. Best option they offered was they could take it back and give me 75% of what I paid. This is poor business and a high cost! Trust me, stay away and find a better furniture store to spend your hard earned money.
We ordered our furniture on August 15 and was delivered a week later. Furniture was cracked, glass was broken, and drawers didn't work. We called Havertys and they made us submit pictures. Technicians were scheduled, and replacements were ordered. In the mail the day before our delivery we received a free shipping coupon from Havertys so we called. Even though we already purchased our furniture we thought since it hadn't been delivered they could apply the coupon. Havertys said they wouldn't so we said we would cancel the order and just re-buy to get the free shipping. The customer service rep got a manager and he approved the free shipping.
A week later I called to see about my refund. Havertys had no clue. After arguing with the manager on call, we just cancelled our entire order. Havertys accepts and instead of refunding us the $150 delivery charge they promised, they took the whole order back ($3,000). Ridiculous to say the least. We will never shop at Havertys again. Customer service goes a long way and the truth means more than a few pieces of furniture. I would rather spend more and get wonderful service than spend less and get crappy service.
