  2. Thanks for that Rosie, I did try to get the invoice on their behalf but the details I gave Levines came up with wardrobes having been purchased and not the bed! Didn't want to push the issue in case they became suspicious. I've looked at the site you've mentioned and it is definitely useful. However the fee of £250 they charge for their inspection will be too much for my friend to afford. They may just have to cut their losses and buy a new one. But once again thanks for your help, it's appreciated. Angie
  3. Hi All This has been going on for ages but my friend finally got a response from the retailer last week. She sent them the suggested letter above posted by Tom. Their only response was to say that they had already assesed it twice and that they were unwilling to do anything further. If my friend wanted to take it further she would have to get an independant body to look at the mattress to assess it. Would anyone out there know how to contact someone to go about doing this? Would the retailer then have to pay for this if the mattress was found to be faulty? I appreciate all y
  4. Just spoke to my friend and it would appear she has no proof of purchase...... She paid cash for the bed all in about £700 and can't locate the receipt. This will probably complicate it a bit won't it. I imagine the fact that Levines have sent two reps out to look at it indicates they recognise the purchase. I suppose she'll have to somehow get them to send her a copy of the purchase invoice without alerting them as to why she needs it.......
  5. Thanks Tom, this letter looks great. I'll get started on it straight away. Angie
  6. A friend of mine bought an ex-display Hypnos mattress from furniture company Levines last year in October. By the beginning of this year both my friend and her husband were suffering with their backs. The springs in the mattress were simply not doing their job and supporting their backs, in fact when lying on it, their backs are very low and their legs almost raised in comparison. Both are on the lighter side of the weight scale so it's not a size issue! They went back to the retailer in April / May this year and were told someone would come out to assess the mattress. A representativ
  7. Oh no, just seen your message BW after paying up for a new pair. I'm about to order these also, SCP TOURMALINE CERAMIC HAIR STRAIGHTENER which are on special offer at £34.95, down from £79.99 this month only. They have a 14 day return policy on them. If they are no good I'll return them within the 14day period and keep the new GHD. If they are good, then I have a brand new pair of GHD which will go on ebay for £65 or to a deserving friend / family member for £43.
  8. The woman I spoke to (Barbara Chapman) was insistent that they had been overused due to the plates being loose. She also said that the fact they caught fire was one of the hazards of all hand held electrical items, eg hoovers, irons etc. I mentioned the court case and she said that it had nothing to do with the cord catching fire and was an other safety issue and that the items in question were all made in 2002 and had since been recalled. When I mentioned the article referred to a woman whose starighteners had caught fire and that she informed Trading Standards I was told the article was i
  9. Just called them up and they offered me a new pair for the price of the repair which is £43.00. Should I accept?
  10. Lovely! Have just emailed it to myself at work, so I have something to do tomorrow!
  11. Thanks for the link, very interesting, especially with regards to the court action against them. In their letter to me they stated that they had very stringent safety tests.... Anyways I just saw this when I googled faulty ghd's.... "Just to let you know what happened when I phoned GHD about their faulty hair straighteners. I simply said that according to the Sale of Goods Act I was entitled to compensation for faulty goods for up to 6 years after the item was bought, regardless of the 1 year warranty. The women on the phone said she'd speak to the supervisor, so she disappeared for
  12. Thanks for that Lisa, I'll try the kissy up tack and ask them to reconsider. Dolly, the address to post your straighteners to is : Jemella Ltd Unit 12 Ryefield Way Silsden Nr Keighley West Yorkshire BD20 0EF the telephone number is 0845 3301133 If you send by special delivery it's about £5.00, recorded will be cheaper though.
  13. Thanks for your message. I would understand if one day I tried to use my irons and they wouldn't work, I wouldn't expect GHD to do anything about it. But the fact that they caught fire is worrying. Had I been using them on the back of my hair, it could well have caught alight. Surely they would have had to answer for it if my head turned into a giant fireball?
