Chris and the Husky

Phoned branch as I needed some hard to come by parts for my Husqvana brushcutter. Spoke to Chris who put himself out to to find the unlisted parts. He phoned the next day, like he said he would, to say that he had them. Excellent customer service.

Avoid the workshop

Put my lawnmower in for repair to the cutting deck with this lot and it took them three attempts to finally get it back from them fixed. Eack time they delivered it, only for it to be faulty, so it had to be returned. Its obvious that they hadnt even run the machine to check it. I had to take time off work three times. And to add insult to injury they then sent me an additional invoice for £83. Never again. Avoid

Couldn't of asked for more!!!

I took my 15 year old hayter into Ernest Does as it had started to suffer from serious vibration. The kind lady in the service department was very helpful and following an initial inspection it turned out the blade was damaged and unbalanced. They replaced the blade and gave the mower a service which has given the mower a new lease of life! From start to finish it only took 5 days and I was kept in the loop throughout. Very happy will definitely use again.

Terrible service

Terrible service. Took lawnmower for service and minor repair. Waited 2 weeks but heard nothing so rang them. Was told there was a 3 weeks backlog (wasn't told this when booked in) but that someone would call me. Waited a further week and rang them. Was told there was now a 5 week backlog. I was also told that they probably wouldn't be able to get the part needed - I don't know how this conclusion was reached given that the mower had not even been looked at. Then told that it would probably be cheaper to buy a new mower! My mower is a petrol driven mower which cost over £200. If that is the sort of money they charge for a service and minor repair then I can't believe they get any business. This company is clearly not interested in dealing with domestic machines. I feel very angry that they wasted my time and petrol by taking the mower in the first place.

lawnmower purchase

I was recommended to Does by a friend. I found them very helpful and the member of staff was very knowledgeable. They helped me into the car with the mower which was all ready to go when I got home and although perhaps a little dearer than your average Homebase of similar it was well worth it for the service I got. The mower works really well and would certainly go back there, I was amazed at the variety of stock they had in the shop too.
