Purchased a Gift for work colleague on 30/11/20 by Company credit card, requested so many time for copy INV, on 16/12/20 they said too busy and manual generated. Emailed after Xmas still heard nothing. Not sure about the quality of the hamper but customer service after sell is not acceptable. Did not understand why is too complicate to generate a INV?

Use another provider if you want your order delivered. I ordered a special food and wine hamper for my mother via their website on December 10th. I was informed it would be delivered no later than December 18th (slower then other providers I used for other family members). I was then sent an email on the 18th telling me it would be December 21st or 22nd. It is now January 4th and nothing has been delivered.

Despite calling multiple times from the US and my family calling from Dublin, Ireland - nobody answers their listed phone number. I have now had to contact my creditcard firm to backcharge the item. I will never use this firm again. I strongly recommend that you consider other Irish based firms instead.

Hi Conor,

Thank you for your feedback.

I can see that you have initiated a credit card chargeback, which is a shame, as we didn't have an opportunity to respond. Today is our first day of resumed trading after the New Year holiday.

If you check the "shipping status" of your order via your account, and also the tracking link at the bottom of the "dispatch confirmation" email you will see the following tracking link. This shows that your order was dispatched on 17th December, to meet your requested delivery date, but unfortunately was reported as damaged by the courier company on 22nd December.

Unfortunately we were not aware of the damage. Had we been, we would have been in contact to apologise and dispatched another basket.

We are incredibly sorry for the heavy handedness of the courier company, and we would of course have offered you a full refund, before you went to the trouble of raising a dispute via your credit card company.

May I reiterate my sincerest apologies that your Mother did not receive the gift basket as intended. It is never our intention to disappoint, and we will continue to work on improving and automating systems and software, in our attempt to prevent situations like this occuring in the future.

Kind Regards,
Customer Services

Hi Shannon, thank you for your message. We have replied to the email thread to explain that unfortunately you placed an order twice due to there being a typo in your email address. If you could please read the explanation we would be most grateful. Thank you.

Very poor communication. I needed to alter my orders within 24 hours of making them due to the lockdown. I was unable to reach anyone at Baskets Galore by phone, email or Facebook. They should offer me a refund as per the regulations for web based purchases but I have not received any such support or help so far. Poor service verging on a scam.

The Question asked "How did BasketsGalore make you happy? ". Well they did not, in fact I am very disappointment in the service. I will agree that part of the issue could be mine as I did not follow their link about Covid. I ordered a basket to be delivered on the 18th Dec but was delivered on the 13th, which was far to early. Also there was no card with it as there should have been. I raised this issue and was told about the Covid link and the card should have been on the outside of the packing box in a plastic envolope, no it was not. There was an offer to call the recipient, I asked for this to be done, as of writing this it had not been done. I then get an email asking for my opinion and 2.50GBP off of my next purchase, currently that will be 2.50GBP Basketgalore will keep as I have no intention of purchasing any more via them.

My wife and I ordered the Christmas Traditional Mixed Banquet Hamper Order No. 1109908. We paid £193.99 with my credit card on 20th November 2020 for a Christmas Traditional Mixed Banquet Duo Hamper.
The list of contents on the website clearly listed the delivery as containing a bottle of the following wines :-
Red Wyndham Shiraz
White Wyndham Chardonnay.
This is a Christmas gift for my elderly parents in County Antrim, N Ireland.
We confirm that the hamper has been received, however the two bottles of wine have not been delivered and are still awaited.
Please advise when these missing items will be provided to the delivery address.
I have tried to reach Irish Gourmet customer services by phone on a daily basis since 28th November 2020, but have been advised repeatedly by voicemail that "no-one is available to answer your call".
This is proving very frustrating ... our Order No. 1109908 Christmas Traditional Mixed Banquet Hamper has yet to be delivered in a complete state including all the items as listed.
Please advise when I will receive the missing items.

Hi William,

Thank you for your feedback.

We have been in touch to apologise, and explain that we did not receive your first email. The telephone answering service is extremely adhoc as a consequence of the pandemic, and we do have a notice on our website to explain this. Either way it was not our intention for you to feel that we are not here to assist you.

We were very sorry to hear that those items were missing from your order. This hamper is also available without wine, and the wrong box was assigned in the warehouse. I sincerely apologise for what has been a case of human error.

As already arranged we are sending the missing items to your parents, and will continue to keep you informed via email.

Kind regards,

Customer Services

Hi Oma,

Sorry to hear this. We did explain via email, and there is a notice on our website, which states that we are unable to guarantee specific delivery dates at this time. The preferred delivery date on your order was 20th November, and delivery was made on 19th. We are sorry if this did not meet your expectations.

Best wishes,

Customer Services

What I ordered I did not get, what is a Hamper basket we can all Google, what I got was a basket I have myself two bottles sitting on top!! Shocking I paid 94euro for privilege, also why have a number to contact no one in office answer it,!! As a person with a disability I need to use a phone, I have ordered another Hamper for December I am going grin and bear it now, will not use this company again.

Hi Catherine, we are sorry to hear the product did not meet with your expectations. The photo you attached shows the gift basket arrived as advertised on our website. The wine is packaged this way for logistical reasons to avoid breakages. As per our correspondence, we did offer you a full refund as our company policy is to always exceed expectations, unfortunately we received no reply, so we assume you have decided to keep it.
Apologies we were unable to take your calls, we do have a COVID announcement on our website explaining why it is not always possible to answer our phone line during this time.
Thank you very much for taking the time to leave your feedback, take care and stay safe. King regards, Poppy

Paid £20 for the luxury of delivering to Inverness on a guaranteed date, as it's apparently on the edge of the world. Delivered two days late for an 18th birthday. Totally lost it's value and impact as a gift.

Hi Graeme,

We are sorry to learn of your disappointment. The delivery postcode is deemed as remote by all courier companies, and for this reason delivery is made within a 48 hour time frame. Unfortunately it isn't possible to arrive on a next day basis. We do try to illustrate the extended area postcodes and time frames, and make them as clear as possible on our website.

You will note from the delivery tracking link that the package arrived at the Inverness depot overnight. It was then sorted and taken out for delivery on a next day basis by Parcelforce.

I apologise for any disappointment caused, but trust that you will appreciate we are limited by the capabilities of the couriers.

Kind regards,

My order was due out 18th March. Delivery went out but was never received, just went straight to the depot without any attempt at delivering or a phone call. We had one very disappointed 6 year old birthday boy who waited all day for it to arrive. Very disappointing! Got it the next day but this is really not good enough.

disappointed with the deliver process. My niece was home waiting and looking out the window while the deliver man delivered a parcel to a neighbour and totally neglected to deliver the parcel i paid for deliver . Yet she was told to go pick it up from the store . Very poor service .You are usually exceptional thats why i use you

Hi Tracey,

I am sorry that delivery wasn't able to be made in time for Christmas. I can confirm that you sent 2 emails on 31st December, when our offices were closed for the New Year holidays. This is the only reason we didn't respond until today 2nd January.
I can see that you placed your order by telephone on 1st December and requested a delivery date of 23rd December. The order confirmation was emailed to you on 1st December. Our records have no way of showing what address was provided at that time. However we apologise if the address has been typed up incorrectly by a member of staff. Spelling mistakes are of course possible, due to human error which is why where possible we recommend that customer's place their order online.
When a telephone order is placed we do ask our customers to check over the email confirmation, and alert us to any discrepancies. It is an unfortunate mistake on both sides, for which we apologise. As you have mentioned your other 2 orders were delivered without any issues.
I have organised for the hamper to be delivered via express overnight delivery service to the correct house number, and a member of our team will be in touch to confirm that delivery has been made.
Kind regards,

Account charged but hamper was not delivered.

Hi Kamini,

I think there must be some confusion, as your order was successfully delivered on 19/12/2019 and the signature matches the name of the receiver.

The delivery tracking link is accessible both in your account, and in the notification of dispatch email that was sent on 18/12/2019

Could you possibly be mistaken? I have also emailed you privately and would be grateful for your response.

Kind regards,

Hamper arrived on the wrong day despite a specific day being requested and confirmed.
I emailed asking why this had occured and I did not receive a reply, so sorry Baskets Galore but that gets you a 1 star review!

Where do I start? A year ago, this worked, this year it was a dog's dinner from start to finish. I was unable to pay on your website as it turned out that Firefox and my security software was blocking a social media tracker. The order for 3 items was proceeded manually, you managed to dispatch 2. On chasing the 3rd, I was told it was all my fault for not tracking the 3rd, non-existent order. Unless things improve dramatically, my business next Xmas will go elsewhere. In particular, you need to review your customer privacy policy as a matter of some urgency.

It didn’t! It was a gift for my brother & his family and he won’t get it on time! When I bought it I chose the date you gave me and paid extra for it to be delivered that day (today, Friday 20th of December). DHL just informed me it will be delivered on Monday 23rd of December, when they won’t be at home as they travel on Sunday. Really disappointed and won’t be buying again! I understand it’s Christmas time and they can be delays, but not this much!

The basket was hardly like described. I can understand if out of stock of something that you have to replace it but this was nothing like it. I spent ages choosing a basket with the things I knew she would love and they were not in it. Totally devastated.

Hi Vanessa,

I am very sorry to learn of your disappointment. However it is lovely to hear that your daughter was delighted with the Gift Basket.

Sometimes it is necessary to replace items. However this isn’t normally due to lack of stock, but rather lack of supply continuity. Suppliers can also improve/change their packaging, and the photo of the Gift Basket - if taken a little while ago - may not be reflective of this.

Just recently we have been unable to receive supplies from 3 of our long-standing partners. A soft drinks company, a snacks company and a bakery company. All three have ceased to exist.

I can see that you have ordered the Birthday Party gift basket. I notice that 4 of the items in this Basket relate to these suppliers.

Due to this, items will have been replaced. However please rest assured that they have been replaced with very similar items, or with upgraded items. We never, ever downgrade - or put in items that aren’t as close as possible in nature to that advertised.

For example the mini iced cake will have been replaced with a chocolate birthday cake which is quadruple in size. The birch water will have been replaced with an alternative organic sparkling drink, and the small nuts packet will have been replaced with an alternative savoury snack.

I hope that my explanation alleviates your concern. If it would reassure you further, I would be happy to call your Daughter and speak to her about the gift and explain the circumstances.

It truly never is our intention to disappoint. Due to your comments this Basket has now been removed from sale, until it can be rephotographed with the new packaging/alternative product lines. Thank you very much for your feedback and for bringing this matter to our attention.

Kind regards,
