Complaint: We purchased new bath equipment from this company. We expadated all boxes on time of delivery. Everything was perfect. We renovated (painted walls in ******** ****** hammed Metallic paint ($28 per quart), installed marble tile, installed new lighting and mirror, crown moldings. It's looks so beautiful, then we hired plumber to install new sink, toilet and faucet, he glued, per our request (we have some big family members in our family), using special heavy duty silicone or so, this toilet to our marble floor. Next day, my husband bought toilet sit, installed it and thought the seat is defected, returned to ** and bought the other one same thing. Then, we noticed that these halls not on the same level. You cant visually noticed that when you expedited shipment, even when you installing the toilet. But when you installing the seat, you will 100% see this big defect. I contacted with Vintage Tub, sent them pictures, where you can see the defect. They agree that the toilet is defected. They assign claim specialist same day and said that it's usually takes up to 3 days, but they will try to solve it as quick as possible. The specialist called me the next hour and said that she will get back to me asap. I was waiting for 7 days, she didn't call/e-mail me back. we cant wait any longer, because it is only one restroom on this floor, and we have a babysitter who cant climb up to stairs each time. My husband bought the new toilet, very similar to this (I think its called ******* brand). We called our licensed plumber, took (with big afford) off your toilet (glue was very visible on marble floor + little ceramic pieces from your toilet. It is damage the floor, but it is ok, because new toilet almost covered damaged area. I called her, she didn't pick up the phone, e-mail - no luck, I sent e-mail to manager, and then she called me back. She said that person from manufacture, who responsible for claims not in this week, she is on vacation this week. I understand, not this week, but what about last
Desired Settlement: We paid $380 first time for sink, toilet installation, plus we hired again our plumber to take it off the floor and install the new one, we bought new hardware (because we weld the previously installed) and new wax ring and he installed the toilet, ring, glued/waxed, welded again to copper pipe, paid $280.I wasted so much time and money with those people without any result.

Complaint: I ordered I corner mounted toilet from Vintage Tub and Bath because according to the measurements provided on their website it fit my needs. Upon arrival of the toilet, which was shipped to me, a quick measurement of my own verified that the information they had on their website was incorrect. Upon reading a few comments on there website I see that I am not the only customer to discover that the actual measurements of their products and their advertised measurements do not always match. I contacted the company and spoke with ****** ******** who was very helpful. She had me photograph my findings and email them to her so that she could process a return shipping label for me to send the toilet back for a full refund. I did all of that and shipped the toilet back to the company, using the exact same packaging material and packing technique I had received it in. The shipment arrived back to them on or about Sept. 27th when I received an automated email from the company letting me know it had arrived and a refund would take 8-10 business days to process. 8 business days later, on Oct. 8th I contacted the company to follow up. At that time I was told by a man named ****** ******* that the toilet had arrived "destroyed." according to him, I should have received notice of this but he had no explanation for why I had not. According to him, my only course of action was to file a claim with the shipping company. He assured me that pictures had been taken of the ":destroyed" toilet and he could email them to me. I asked him to do so, and told him I would wait on hold while he did. Three pictures shortly arrived in my email account of a perfectly intact shipping box. with packaging material still in place. No toilet, damaged or otherwise, is visible in the pictures. When I asked him to clarify this, his explanation was that actual pictures of the toilet were not saved to the public file and that he would have to get his manager to send a request for those pictures. I was then denied the opportunity to speak with this manager. This was an expensive toilet. incorrectly advertised as being one size while it was not that size and hence of no use to me. I question the validity of their claim of the product being "destroyed" as I used the exact same shipping technique and company, FedEx, to return the merchandise as they had to send it to me. Plus the fact that no photographic evidence has been given to me to this claim. When asked by ****** to provide pictures to her showing the discrepancy of the toilets measurements I had them to her immediately. I do not like the fact that I asked to speak with the manager and was told no. That fact, along with the lack of photographic evidence of the toilets condition, makes me question this company's ethics.

Complaint: /I ordered a bathtub on 8/18/2013 from this company. I was contacted 3 days later stating the bathtub I ordered had been sold. When I ordered the /tub I used a 5% discount code that is advertised on their website daily. I had tot reorder another bath tub from this company, over a $1500.00 purchase that was deducted from my checking account on 8/23 the same day I placed the 2nd order. The person taking my order failed to take off the 5% discount code and instead added 5% to my total purchase. I contacted them via email on 8/23 regarding this 56.50 credit owed to me. I have sent 3 emails asking about it and all that happens is they are forwarded on . It is 9/11/2013 and still no credit or bath tub for that matter. This company is truly misleading and I am not sure how they have a A- rating with BBB considering the reviews I have read online. I want my credit is due and my bath tub that was to be shipped almost 2 weeks ago and never has been. They do not call to let you know that they are behind on anything. I wonder if I would have help off my payment 2 weeks how they would have reacted? This company is horrible to deal with!
Desired Settlement: I want credit owed and bath tub delivered.
Dear ******* *******,

Complaint: Sales Rep and Customer Service not helpful, insisting I'm to blame for entire order. Sent recorded phone discussions. Told sales wanted Deck or rim mount tub, sales insisted I should buy wall mount (out of rim tub???) as 'more compatible and more room' for stand shower. 54" tub wall mount tub sent with shower ring 55" plus the 10" from wall totals 65"- total available space 58". Customer Service says I have to BUY the smaller 48" ring or settle for rod being cut which is ugly and allow rod to sway slightly with weight of curtain. For 1,850.00 would expect sales rep to KNOW the right items needed, ACCEPT customers original request and NOT talk customers into the tub THEY want to sell. Also told sales that water lines came out of the wall. Floor lines were sent and customer service refused to help. Extra days work for plumber (more expensive for me)to reroute waterlines. Of course was billed immediately. With all the delays, still do not have finished bath 4 weeks later. Because the faucet sticks out so far into the small tub, only 25" bathing space, we can not use without banging knees on the faucet - hence why we wanted the rim mount - wall mount looses 8.5" of space. I'm sure many of units have been sold and sales rep misguided me on the wall mount. Should not have to accept cut down rod. Rod should not be larger than tub-common sense. Tired of the bruised knees so we do not use tub to bathe and haven't got to try the shower as plumber has not returned. He was very discussed with lack of instructions (none included)and poor quality parts, don't know IF he will return. I had to print out over 20 pages of specifications/installation instructions off of the website. Again, would expect better as not cheap. Retirees should not have to deal with extra problems, lack of customer support, extra expenses because sells rep doesn't know the products or just wants to make the sale.
Desired Settlement: Smaller rod should be sent to replace larger rod. Should receive partial refund for the tub that was talked into OR rim mount sent as originally requested.
Our Customer Service Manager listened to all three phone calls concerning *** ****’s purchase. Our manager did not hear any discussion between our sales person and *** **** about the location of the supply lines. *** **** seemed far more concerned about us discounting the tub rather than choosing a specific type of tub. Here is an email our Customer Service Manager sent to *** **** (before she contacted the BBB) requesting more information concerning her claims that our sales person was misleading:
I have attached the recorded phone discussions between you and the sales rep *****. I pulled them because I wanted to see if you had been misled in any way. I have labeled the calls accordingly, if there is another phone call in which you and ***** discussed the supply line issue in depth, please let me know when it would have been and from what phone # as I have spent the better part of this afternoon trying to find another phone call to prove your point.
With the phone calls that I was able to find, I do not hear the lengthy discussion that you mentioned and do not find that VTB has made an error with the order. Again, if I am missing a phone call, please help me find it.
There is a third call in which you called from your Cell phone to provide the payment for the order, I did not want to send that recording due to the fact that it contains your credit card information. I can assure you that there was not a discussion about the product during that call and will send it if you like.
I did see that ***** actually extended the full 10% contractors discount on your order, which in all honesty should not have been done. This discount is reserved for contractors only and ***** can get into a great deal of trouble for having extended it. If ***** had followed the guidelines that your order qualified for , the order total should have been $2060.94 minus $55.05 discount for a total of $2005.89, your order received a discount of $215.35 for a total of $1845.59.
Again, if there is another call that contained the discussion about the supply lines, please let me know when it would have taken place, what phone # it would have been made from… something that will help me find the call.
Based on the information before me; I do not believe that we pressured *** **** to take a tub she did not want. Further, we gave her a deeper discount she normally not would be entitled to on the tub she said she wanted. When we learned that the shower ring she ordered would not fit with the normal support rods, we sent her the connecting hardware (at no charge) that would allow her to easily fit the ring to her bathroom. Finally, we gave her a $69 tub caddy at no charge as well. Unless *** **** introduces new information to the conversation; I don’t think there is any more we should or can do for her.

Complaint: A little over a year ago I purchased a shower unit from them. I bought it mainly because of the 5 year warranty. I've now gone back to them to see if parts are available and they are telling me that they've discontinued the unit and no longer support it. I asked how they could offer a 5 year warranty on an item that they discontinued and offer no support on less than a year later. They told me sorry there was nothing they could do.
Desired Settlement: I would like them to offer some kind of refund for misrepresenting their product and it's warranty.
I just read the notes for this order and spoke with the customer service representative who handled *** ******’s call. The facts as I have them are different than they are presented in the complaint. We need to be clear - there is no warranty claim being made on this product. The product is working correctly. My understanding is that *** ****** wants to purchase extra parts to modify the unit into a multi-head shower. Unfortunately, we discontinued this shower and no longer have any spare parts in stock. Our warranty covers replacement, repair or refund if there is a defect with the item within the warranty period. The warranty does not extend to having spare parts for purchase to modify the unit. There simply no basis for a complaint if I have the facts right.
As an aside – of course we support and honor our warranties. We will offer prorated refunds / replacement items / credits in the rare instance when we cannot supply parts for valid warranty claims against one of our house brand products.
