I bought a sofa bed from Ikea which was delivered to my son's address in Plymouth.


Unfortunately the mattress had a hole in it, and they didn't have a replacement mattress in stock, so we had to wait 6 weeks for one to be delivered.

Come the day of the expected delivery I received a notification from DPD that they were delivering it to my Redruth address rather than my son's address in Plymouth.


After an hour of trying I managed to get hold of a customer service agent on web chat and asked him to re-direct the delivery to Plymouth and ensure that no-one turned up in Redruth to collect the damaged mattress as it was in Plymouth. He promised me that everything would be sorted.


This morning an irate delivery driver turned up at my address in Redruth to collect the mattress, and I have received notification that the mattress is back out for delivery to Redruth.


I contacted Ikea again to ask what was going on and after another hour of explaining myself was told there was nothing they can do and I will just have to refuse delivery of the mattress (despite the fact that they managed to stop the delivery yesterday).


The agent also refused to put me in touch with a manager and just gave me the standard customer care number to call so I could start all over again explaining what my problem is - their website is currently advising a wait of 45 minutes to be connected!
