“It gives me enormous pleasure to write this letter to thank you and your teams for the huge effort put in to ensure the show homes successfully launched on Saturday 23 April.
As with most show homes, we are reliant on subcontractors performing to the best of their abilities working under difficult conditions and often working around other trades.
It is a credit to everyone involved to not only have achieved completion for the launch date but to have achieved the outstanding quality of workmanship and finish.
Please forward my gratitude to all your members for their involvement in delivering a truly magnificent Sales area.”

“Just to say thanks so much for organising the orders for me, we are thrilled with everything. We haven’t actually fitted the covers to our existing chairs yet or fitted the moooi light but sure all will look good.
The man who delivered was so efficient I would especially like you to thank him as well. Everything really good.”

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY ABOUT US…

“Just wanted to thank you for the efficient delivery of the B&B Italia sofa to my client. She is delighted and spoke very highly of your delivery service, which was exactly on time, and she said they were very helpful.
Wishing you a very happy Christmas.”

Paula

“We just received the six chairs and are very pleased. You really did an excellent job! The chairs arrived perfectly on time as advised by Tramo, who also provided perfect services. It has been a pleasure doing business with you.
Many thanks and best regards.”

Vincent – Berlin, Germany

“Hello,
I bought a Ron Arad light from you and arranged to collect it from your warehouse. I rang up the chap there to see if it was definitely there and ready to go. He said it was but that he was going to be doing a delivery near to our flat in W1 and would drop it off free of charge and the next day. What a top piece of customer service. Please find out who it was and give them a pat on the back or a wage rise, though I suspect it will be the former.”

Mark

“Just a note to say thank you for the delivery of our two big sofa’s yesterday and especially to compliment your two delivery men. They were friendly, helpful, polite, tidy and efficient. A very good advertisement for the Chaplin’s image.”

Brian

“Just to say Thank You for all your assistance. Mrs Fu has now moved in and is really pleased with all the Chaplins furniture.”

Linzi – Forme Design & Architecture

“I received the unit OK, thank you, 2 very nice Polish guys delivered and built it. Please pass on to the warehouse, how good they were.
The unit is already loaded with my pottery collection! Looks FAB!”

Julie

“What can I say, everything fantastic!!!You team of guys were just superb! Nothing was too much trouble. I want some just like yours!!! Hope they all got back safely.”

Jacky

“Many thanks for sending your fitters today.
I was out unfortunately but my wife said they were prompt, efficient, friendly and very polite!
Best of all…..they fixed the problem easily apparently…..without having to send the bits to Germany.
Thanks once again.”

David

“I understand you are the MD or owner of Chaplins. We bought a table and chairs from you-it must be 5 years ago. Recently we have had a problem with the table and one of the chairs-something I suspect that is a design fault- we tried a number of ways to fix them, all to no avail. Finally my wife suggested phoning you, although we did not really expect to make much progress. How wrong can you be? We were put in contact with Geoff at your warehouse who understood what the problems were and arranged for the table to have a “fix” to solve the design fault and is currently trying to repair the chair himself. The reason for this email is to say that he personifies what good customer service is all about. He is knowledgeable, courteous and has been on the phone a number of times to keep us informed of what is happening. He is a major asset to the reputation of Chaplins and I thought I should tell you this.”

David

“Just want to thank you for the furniture we received today — they look great. And thank you for the Knoll table top. The size works perfectly for the base and 4 chairs.”

Nancy

“I wanted to thank you for organising the the two guys to come at very short notice and fit my Caedre mirror. I want you to know how impressed I was with them. The first thing they did when they came in the house was to take their shoes off..completely unprompted. I was very impressed as this showed me how respectfull they were. I also wanted to mention how impressed I was with their workmanship…they were very thorough and methodical in fitting the mirror and cleaned up after themselves. Thank you for such a great service.”

Sarah

“I just had to write and tell you how thrilled we were with the de Sede sofa and armchairs plus the B&B Italia Flat C units. They certainly give our room the WOW factor. Your staff worked brilliantly with me to achieve my dreams – from Phillip who spent all those hours getting the design exactly right – to Bhasker Patel who kept me up to date with the order progress and organising the delivery date – and finally to those magnificent deliver/fitting men who seemed to make light of what looked to me a mammoth jigsaw of shelving laid out on the floor. I can’t wait for friends and family to visit – I know they are going to love it as much as I do. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!”

Celia – Enfield

“Just to say that the replacement extension for the Naos table was delivered and safely installed last week. I wanted to thank you very much indeed for your help in this matter. It was a great relief to be able to return the table to its proper form. I have to say that I am very impressed indeed with the service from Chaplins and I would recommend the company to anyone looking for good quality furniture and excellent customer service. Thank you again.”

Bob – Prestbury

“I used the paint and it was the exact match. Thank you and the people who organised it. I am very impressed both with the emu products I have and now with the 5 star customer service you have provided. Please make sure your customer service people are made aware and once again many thanks.

John – London SW1

“Just to say my daughter law & I went to Chelsea Harbour Design Centre last week for a “Trip to London”. We thought everything in your gorgeous shop was gasping! Thanks for such a great, memorable look in your shop. We’ve talked about it ever since. The chap was inspiring too. (we’re not designers just shoppers).”

Linda – Barnfield Farm

“Stephanie good morning. I wanted to write and thank you for the marvellous service and advice we have received from Chaplins and most particularly yourself.
The sofas are beautiful and in fact the ideal choice for such a difficult shaped room. We spent years trying to work out what were the best sofas and your advice helped immensely.
The wishbone chairs are a perfect match for the table and we are of course delighted with the lines shelving unit.
Thank you so much again”

Richard and Hayley – Aston Clinton, Bucks

“We are enjoying all the furniture; it looks and is behaving beautifully and thank you for all your efforts over the last few months. Another case of Chaplins hitting the nail on the head – style and service-wise. The last bit, the Maxalto lamp, has just pulled the lighting together and really fits.”

Helen and Frank – London W1

“”Just to say thank you – Table is magnificent – Service has been the best!”

Giorgina

“The new Molteni shelves are up and look great. I want to comment on your fitters who did a great job.”

Mark – London

“My delivery has arrived today, and all the items are there in perfect condition. Thank you very much for organising it, and for being patient when the flat was not yet ready. Your delivery guys are totally professional and meticulous. I’m extremely impressed with the service. I’ll keep coming back!”

Andrew – London W8

“We love our Multy. The delivery was very cool: on time and quick – and successful.”

Helen – Tenbury Wells, Worcestershire

“Just to let you know that the wardrobe was successfully installed over the weekend. Your staff were very helpful, efficient and pleasant, which was also a bonus.”

Steve – Ikley, Yorkshire

“Peter, everything arrived yesterday in perfect condition. We are so delighted thank you. Just to let you know your delivery people were really helpful and care whilst delivering the furniture. We hope to deal with Chaplins again very soon.”

Rebecca – Warsah, Southampton

“Thank you very much for the delivery of the table today, the team were very professional and lined it up beautifully. The crane manoeuvre went seamlessly and what appeared as though it might be very dramatic was over quickly and simply. It’s left me dreading moving house but hopefully that won’t be for a good few years!”

Arran – Ealing, London W5

“Roman & Jacob who delivered our furniture on Friday provided us with an excellent client service. They were very polite, professional and very efficient. They are a big credit to your company.”

Rashmi – Northwood, Middlesex

“Just wanted to say how pleased we are with our new desk. It looks great. The delivery team were also very good – on time and very efficient and professional. Thanks”

Julie – Balerno, Edinburgh

“I cannot thank you enough for your help with the procurement of the replacement glass and would be grateful if you would pass our thanks to the manufacturer. Beyond excellent customer service from all parties involved.”

Denise – Midhurst, West Sussex

“Our furniture was delivered this morning and I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you and how pleased we are with furniture. It is just how I hoped it would be. The two delivery men this morning were punctual, very polite and very respectful of our property- making the whole process of buying and getting the furniture very easy and stress free.”

Claire – Teddington, London TW11

“Great job by the teams today.
Really appreciate the care and attention to detail, must have taken them best part of an hour to adjust the sideboard doors.
Have given them a decent tip for such care especially in the heat and with two more deliveries to make.”

Steve – Waterloo, Liverpool

“I am very happy with installation of my bedroom furniture.
Both Fabrizio & Federico undertook job very well, they even removed their shoes when entering the building.
Please convey my thanks to all the persons involved at Chaplins.”

John – South Harrow, Middlesex

“I didn’t have time to write comments on the delivery note as I had my toddler hanging off of me (!) but I just wanted to give you some feedback on the drivers and I would be grateful if you could pass it on to their manager please. They were extremely polite, friendly and very careful while unpacking the table. They also took off their shoes when they entered our home which not all people do! They spent ages wiping the table down and cleaning the glass (which had sticky residue on it I believe from the protective film it was wrapped in). They were a pleasure to have in our home, it’s so nice to have engaging delivery people who don’t just dump the parcel on your doorstep and run! Well done. They, along with your excellent customer service, will encourage me to purchase from Chaplin’s again in the future.”

Michelle – Fleet, Hampshire

“Just wanted to say thank you for the excellent service Chaplins have given me whilst fulfilling my recent order of a Ligne Roset table.
Everyone I have dealt with has been notably efficient and responsive but also friendly and courteous. From Melvin who quickly corrected my order when I realised I’d made a mistake and ordered the wrong finish (and he kept me informed of expected delivery, which was also spot on), to Mike in the warehouse arranging a convenient and very accurate delivery slot, to the delivery man (Fabrizio or Federico?) who carefully unpacked my table and took away all the bulky packaging.
I’ve been handling a long renovation/redecoration project in my flat and have been dealing with dozens of companies over the past six months, from small operations to big household names, and Chaplins stands out for service in comparison with them all so I just wanted to let you know!
Please pass on my thanks to the staff I have mentioned and I look forward to dealing with Chaplins again.
