I had pretty good service from them at their shop in Tanjong Katong Complex. I was looking at sinks but they also had ovens and all sorts of other things. I didn't realise they had upmarket stores as well (the one at Tanjong Katong is quite an old fashioned sort of hardware store - and the lady who served me was a nice 'aunty' who knew their products very well and was able to advise me on the different items that they carried).

I bought all my bathroom items and kitchen sink from Hoe Kee IMM. The pricing that the salesman give me is the cheapest so far compared to other shops in Jln Besar area and IMM. Yes, I even went to the extent to compare prices cos other guys from Renotalk told me Jln Besar had some of the cheapest shop.

But then take note Hoe Kee staff at IMM got some who give the stuck up look. I bought from the salesman who give me valuable advice when I step into the shop the 1st time but never bought anything from him and left. In the end went back and manage to see him so buy from him lor.

Visited Hoe Kee at Genting Rd and found tt their service is good n not pushy. They also allow us to hv our own time to see around. An item list card was given to us for noting down on items tt we r interested in.

Will definitely go back for blanco metra 9 kitchen sink, mixer tap n techno cooking hob n hood. 

I would say that their pre-sales service is good. After-sales service is downright terrible.

 

Bought a supposedly 'stainless steel' dishrack from them. Dishrack was obviously not of satisfactory quality. Significant signs of corrosion observed less than 3 months from purchase,with a highly tarnished and rusted appearance.

 

Visited the Tanjong Katong Complex outlet for some explanation, but the staff member there, a middle aged lady/aunty who was not in uniform and appeared to be a senior staff member of the outlet, offered some really ridiculous explanations and a highly impractical remedy. Raised her voice and was extremely rude (a complete contrast to how she was like when she was selling her products).

 

Excuses offered:

·  Rust comes from water source. She even had the cheek to suggest that the water coming from my taps is unfit for consumption/non-potable and suggested I get a water purifier to solve this problem

 o Highly unlikely. Other stainless steel products at my home do not exhibit signs of corrosion, and no, the water coming out from my taps are really clear. No rust whatsoever.

·  Grade of stainless steel used in my dishrack is expected to rust very quickly and extensively

 o Unlikely. Hoe Kee advertised the rack as being of 304 stainless steel, the kind that is often used in your cutlery. Can you imagine your cutlery rusting within 3 months from purchase?

 

Her offered remedy was to perform regular ‘maintenance’ of the dishrack by scrubbing it to remove all the rust and slathering it with toothpaste daily. I dare say this offered solution is beyond what can be expected of any reasonable person, and that no one with a real stainless steel product needs to perform such a routine to prevent the formation of rust.

Hoe Kee has the WORST cust service and delivery ever. We bought a number of items from them - taps, a basin-cabinet for the common toilet, hood and hob, kitchen sink, master toilet basin. all items arrived in good condition. points deducted because they were late for that delivery.

 

anyway, about two weeks after installation of the common toilet cabinet, one of the doors had a defect. see pic below:

 

cabinet

 

looks weird right? just a swirl of glue on styrofoam. and this is during renovation (toilets already done so no reason to touch the toilet in case you're thinking the workers spoilt it). so we called up HK's cust service. they told us to what's app the photo, so we did. and then "Mr Sean" will get in touch with us the following day. but lo and behold - no news from him. My husband called HK twice more, and both times they said Sean is busy. I then called in the evening - by then Sean had left! best. Naturally i sounded pissed off. Oh and the lady had the audacity to say this product has no warranty as it is caused through wear and tear. What guarantee do I have that it won't get spoilt again?

 

Anyway, I asked for them to come down ASAP to fix it. they agreed to come today (Monday, 18.1.16), between 1-4pm. As of now, 5.26pm, still no news. When my husband called them at 4pm to ask where they are, the cust svc took another 30 mins to get back to him to say they will come before 6. Then why give a 1-4pm slot? My husband took leave just for this!

 

Pathetic. I should have checked their facebook page (full of 1 star reviews) before purchasing from them. Never again. At your own risk, guys.

well...my 1st impression is their delivery service is terrible...

i purchased kitchen sink, shower set, 2 bathroom sinks (1 with the cabinet) and a ceiling fan on Jalan Besar showroom.

First, they called me that Fan is not available after received my payment.

I came down for refund and the guy on the showroom just said "distributor just informed us, no stock. so what can we do loh"...

Secondly, the delivery guys called me 30 MINS PRIOR ARRIVAL...what the ****....i need to be like a guardhouse on my ongoing renovation home...and they came an hour after....

A little bit defect on the bathroom cabinet and he mentioned "this is the last stock"..nothing to say,just need to pray it'll not spoil in a year after.

Then, their customer service can't appreciate for non-Chinese speaking customer (like me). They called me in Chinese and have to wait for 20mins to get the English speaking CS. Seems their management is sucks.

 

what i can say, buy the common product only from them Blanco sink and shower set) but not for the rest.
