Dear staff of the Lighting Warehouse,
This will be a very brief review, but it is all positive.
The website and catalogue is well laid out, logical & attractive, and I had no problems finding the lamps I wanted. The checkout & payment section was also easy to follow and intuitive. If I might add just one small observation, the Giancarlo lamp colour in the checkout was white in the picture but labelled as black.
The delivery time to our sleepy little hamlet of Bloemfontein was also remarkably quick- two days if I remember. Although I didn’t track the parcel (I think it actually arrived before the tracking was activated), this was a good feature.
The courier was a cheerful & professional fellow, who obviously enjoys his work. Bloemfontein couriers are notoriously unfriendly, poorly trained and lack communication skills, so your man was a five star agent all round.
The lamps themselves were easy to assemble, look good and are obviously well-designed, as they distribute the light evenly, and the ergonomics are such that you never feel as if you might burn your fingers when adjusting the angle in a casual manner. May I also express my appreciation for the fact that the three I ordered were all discounted to 54%; while I wasn’t bargain hunting (I chose purely on aesthetics), this was the cherry on top of a delicious cake (I don’t even even a sweet tooth, so I hardly ever use that metaphor).
I will certainly make use of the Lighting Warehouse online system in future. To be honest, the website is so well designed that you get the impression of walking into a showroom- there are a few lighting places here in Bloem but the stock is very outdated and the service terrible. As soon as I buy bedside tables I will look for reading lights, and I see no reason to bother with anything except your company.
