Q & As

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 27 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by As described and fast to assemble My young son and husband assembled these very quickly and now want another bookcase. The colour is a little lighter as described by another reviewer but I may not have noticed if I hadn't read that review. I will order more. 10 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Value Bookcase A really excellent value product - solid and sturdy. The back panel is easy to fit with patience. So pleased with the book case that I ordered the low wide one. 10 February 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good product This bookcase is functional and good value for money. The assembly went to plan up to Step Twelve - attaching the Fasteners to secure the backboard. Take care to ensure the Fasteners are correctly positioned before inserting the screws; my first attempt failed to penetrate the fixed panel and the screw came through to the front, causing some damage. Rather than using the drawing locations, I fixed 8 of the Fasteners into the back corners (as I saw had been done at the John Lewis High Wycombe store) and the remaining two at the mid point of the fixed panel. 04 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really great bookshelf Was really happy with this bookshelf. The quality was good (weighs a ton!), all the bits were there, great price. Absolutely delighted with it and will be investigating other items in the range 07 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Value Bookcase Easy to put together, great value for the money its perfect. Would certainly recommend. 25 December 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good for the money The first bookcase delivered had holes missing in one of the pieces but the second is very good. Surprisingly sturdy for a cheap bookcase. Just what I wanted. 09 December 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Just the job This neat bookcase fits nicely in my study and is a very useful storage unit. I have been able to adjust 2 of the shelves to take foolscap folders and files, which is part of the storage I needed. Ordering and delivery was nice and straightforward too. Would definitely consider using this service again. 09 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product I ordered this for my daughters bedroom after her love of books filled the previous basics Kirby design. They work well together and it is of a good quality - excellent value. Really pleased. 03 September 2014
