Customer Reviews For The Bergen 2 Door Sliding Wardrobe

Based on 216 reviews

I think the product itself is ok. However the instructions are appalling and our wardrobe turned up with some damage to the front. The instructions are in French and they are desperately unclear. It took us 10 hours to get the first wardrobe together. 5 hours for the 2nd when we knew a little better what we were trying to achieve. There are no clear photos that you can view to get an appreciation of what you are trying to do. A good idea is to google and facebook what other people have done and follow the advice they have given. I am more than happy to answer any questions anyone has regarding the assembly process as I lived and breathed it for so long over that torturous weekend. Something to bear in mind is that you have to push the ends together - that means it is very difficult to assemble on carpet and within the space it will occupy if that space is only a little larger than the wardrobe itself (The space we had was 157cm and the wardrobe is 153cm). It is doable but not without some creative thinking. I would probably recommend that you buy from Ikea if you are going to buy a self assembly item. From my experience they have the best instructions and go together far more easily. There were several occasions where you had to create the holes required for this wardrobe which is far from ideal. Some advice for Bensons would be to create a video of the assembly so that customers have something to learn from.

delivery date was changed for a week later without me knowing. I had to call them to see where the wardrobe was they said it was booked for delivery 22nd and not the 14th which was never the case if you look at my delivery email. Anyway it finally arrived. The Bergen wardrobe took 4 hours and 4 people to put it together. One reading the instructions (not reading as theyre in French) but trying to make sense of them , 2 more people to lug the huge pieces around and the other person making brews and snacks. It was so much effort and time but worth it as the wardrobe is actually really pretty and looks amazing in my new guest room! not as sturdy as I first thought it would be as the back panels are plaster board not wood, but its more than decent when you get all your clothes in.

4

Whilst the wardrobe itself is excellent; the assembly instructions are dreadful. e.g. the drawings of the doors would be make more immediate sense if they showed whether the mirrors were up or down. The drawings do not show which way round the front side panels are fitted and they are best left until after the doors have been installed. I found that the small four-holed metal bracket fixing the top front panel to the vertical side panels was best fixed to the top front panel before trying to install the panel. The instructions show the bracket being fixed after the three panels are in position which is almost impossible. I would concur with other reviewers that assembley takes a lot longer than expected.

I love my new Bergen wardrobe! The instructions were, as many mentioned before, not the easiest to understand completely but definitely doable. A video from Benson For Beds would be really beneficial. The wardobe fits perfectly as measured (153cm width) and has loads of storage space. When it was delivered initally, it was damaged but the drivers couldn't have been more professional and got it sorted there and then to be redelivered within 2 weeks. The 2nd lot of delivery drivers then carried the boxes up 2 flights of stairs and into my flat which was brilliant of them as the 4 boxes were incredibly heavy. Would definitely recommend again

5

Received the wardrobe & 2 chest of drawers in the white oak delivered on the stated day and time frame. I agree the instructions are not easy it's very time consuming making sure everything is correct. But what can say absolutely outstanding pieces of furniture. Well made sturdy they look brilliant. Everything even down to the trim is perfection. They make other self assembly bedroom furniture look very poor in quality. I ordered them when the reduction was on so they were a good price. I know that Benson's do have a gentleman that assembles so if anyone was unsure about assembly I would ask them about him. I couldn't be happier .

5

This wasn't the quickest thing to put together with lots of components to assemble. It said two people required - I did most of it by myself but I'd recommend three people for putting the top on - one to hold it steady while two lift the top as it's quite heavy and needs placing down with some precision. We managed it with two of us but it was tricky. The 3.5 hours stated for assembly is a bit optimistic for mere mortals like me but the end result is a very well-made, sturdy wardrobe. Well worth the money and the effort.

4

Good sturdy wardrobes; value for money. However; like others have commented the instructions are not very good; hence only four stars. Also there is no YouTube video for this style and the other videos do not help for the parts that are difficult to fathom. Thats said my husband and myself are not fantastic DIYers and managed to put these together ourselves. One day we did the carcass and the next day the doors; as you need a break in between to releave the stress.

5

It's a really solid, great quality wardrobe. The instructions could be better it ended up taking us about 6 hours to build, but once its built it's really worth it! It's also great that the shelves and rail holes are everywhere so you can actually choose where you want to place the shelves and rails which I thought was great because you could actually buy more rails and make more storage. Overall I'd highly recommend it.

3

Instructions were in French and not clear at all. It took 2 people 6 hours to put together. Parts were really cheap and bad quality. Had to kind of take initiative with assembly towards the end as instructions were so unclear. Once the wardrobe was up, it does look really nice however definitely not worth the hassle. Should have shopped elsewhere and will not purchase furniture from here again.

3

The wardrobe looks really good in general but it is horrendous to put together. The instructions are some of the worst ive ever seen past a certain point and they sometimes instruct in non logical way, and to make it worse they are entirely in french! The doors are hard to get on the runners. The quality of the material is very average, usual flatpacked quality.

5

Ordered the 2 door sliding wardrobe. Delivery service excellent; kept updated with delivery slot; delivery men very friendly and helpful. As I had read previous reviews I too had a fitter come to assemble; it was done in a few hours so all in all very pleased; especially as the instructions seem to be mainly in French! It's a lovely wardrobe; plenty of room.

4

Poor instructions to fix wardrobe together, with many illustrations and instructions mainly in English and French. I would recommend two persons to for safety and practical ability sake. Defiantly consider asking a handyman to complete the assembling for you. However, when the wardrobe is complete, it is rather pleasing, and on balance worth the effort.

4

It took us ages to put up and we made mistakes along the way too. its very difficult following their instructions and being in French didn't help either. My advice is simply don't buy it unless you have someone to put it together for you. Its great when its up but we wouldn't have bought it had we fully realised the difficulty we would have

4

The wardrobe looks lovely with plenty of space but I have given it 4 stars because we didn't find the instuctions very easy to follow. Whilst it is mainly picture diagrams all of the writing is in French with only some of it translated into English. Also; although it says it takes 3.5 hours to complete it took us 6-7 hours.

5

You need to be a competent person to build this as instructions are in French and the diagrams not very clear also dont expect to be able to build on your own its heavy and when it says it requires two people theres a the reason good solid wardrobe when finished very pleased with how it looks

5

Found the quality of the wardrobe excellent for the money, the only issues being the assembly and the included instructions which may have well been in Chinese. It took a competent expert in flat pack construction all day and you definitely need two people for the door placement as very heavy.

5

Looks great. Instructions were in French with supporting pictures which weren't easy to interpret. Stated it would take 3.5 hours to construct but took two of us more than twice that! It was very heavy but that's quality. Now it is built it looks great and my daughter is thrilled with it.

4

Looks lovely and does the job. Really difficult to put the wardrobe together as instructions in every language except for English. Diagrams not always clear, took several hours to assemble the wardrobe. Needed at least two tall people or stepladders to fit the top and mirror doors.

4

Lovely looking wardrobes but wouldnt reccomend assembling yourself. Had we known what we know now we would have definately paid the extra to have it assembled. The instructions for assembly are the worst ive come across and very difficult and frustrating to work out at times.

5

Purchased this wardrobe and it is of good quality, strong shelves, double hanging space and lovely addition to bedroom. Was that impressed that I purchased this wardrobe again for the spare room. Did take slightly longer to build than stated, but worth the effort.

3

Good big wardrobe. Only issue I would say is that the assembly instructions are not very clear and the pictures are not clear; each panel wasnt not numbers so took longer. Took over 4 hours to assembly; overall good product but disappointed with the instructions

5

The wardrobe looks even better than I thought it would look like, once a friend had put it together for us. The only problem, was that the instructions were only in French. As you are selling these items in England, you should have it also written in English.

3

The instructions for this product were a big let down. Mistakes were made due to lack of information and poor pictures. The wardrobe itself is nice but would have been nicer if it was done without mistakes... leaving it not flush in places.

3

The product itself once put together is really nice with a lot of room, but it is really hard to put together as the instructions are not English and therefore hard to understand and the panels were delivered warped so this was even harder!

5

Very nice heavy piece of furniture(Build in place or as near as possible). Delivery was great and well protected. All parts were machined perfect and went together well with a little bit of time at the start to work out the instructions.

5

Excellent value for money! Easy to assemble (providing you can understand the pictures as the instructions are mainly in French) delivery staff were efficient and timely. Would definitely recommend as a cost effective wardrobe option.

4

Theres no doubt that this wardrobe is a quality item and looks fabulous. It only took three days, a crash course in conversational French and two suicide attempts before it was up & running too ! Cest trs magnifique ! Bon !

4

Very good quality materials used,but instructions are very hard to follow.be prepared to struggle with the bottom sliding rail.top tip!! Slide both doors to the left side and then feed bottom rail onto the bottom of the doors.

5

Reading previous reviews we decided to have someone come and build the wardrobe. Money well spent as we had a Bergen 2 and 3 Door Sliding Wardrobe was assembled in 3 hours compared to 7 hours according to the instructions.

5

Love this wardrobe! It's very spacious inside. Couple of things could make this wardrobe even better the handles could be different for better grip, And finishing touches haven't been done,although you can't see them.

3

The veneer on this is so thin that it rubbed off in several places by the time we had put it up. The dowls also damaged one of the pieces as it pushed through when we put it together. The back board is flimsy.

5

Exceptionally well made and good quality product, however assembly instructions are not the greatest and lack a little detail. That said, all assembled in about 3 hours and a good looking practical wardrobe.

4

Wardrobe was a pain to put together. Instructions arent all that clear. Its said 3.5 hrs and two person. It took us 7 hrs and at times three people and a hammer. Saying that end product is great.

3

Assembly complicated, not straight forward. Most manual in trench. Please change it to something more clear.. I had to wait about 2 months for delivery due to covid. In overall good product, very sturdy.

5

Took 7 hours with 3 people to build, delivery was on time and the gentleman was lovely and respectable to my home, would 10/10 recommend, I will say the delivery took 11 weeks after ordered though

4

A nice quality wardrobe; but the instructions were very hard to understand and were in French; The two back panels did not fit well; took us 8 hours to assemble not the 3.5 as it says it should!

4

Products looked good but they were made very cheaply and poorly reminded me of the cheap MFI furniture even the instructions were very poor never ever follow the instructions wont recommend

3

Not great quality, its a flat pack very similar to Ikeas quality but more expensive. So not worth the money. It was also a nightmare to put up and the instructions werent very clear.

5

The wardrobes were quite difficult to put together as the instructions were in French. Once I figured out what goes where the wardrobes are of a good quality and would recommend them.

4

I had a large one before same product and it was very good quality so I decided to go with the same brand and same product but smaller size for my new home and bought two this time.

4

The wardrobe was exactly what I wanted, small problem with instructions as they were written in French. Had to call in help but we managed just took a little longer to put together

5

Good quality for the money. Looks expensive. Very heavy and sturdy. Instructions were hard to interpret and took a good 3 days to erect. Overall happy with the product.

4

Amazing wardrobe and looks beautiful in my room! However the instructions were very vague and poor illustration. Took nearly 6 hours to build but worth it in the end.

3

Good wardrobes and quality, love the big mirrors and that it has both rails and shelves, however instructions are not in English so they are very difficult to follow

4

Looks nice and spacious. Value for money, smooth sliding doors. Very Happy with the product..wish the assembly could have been simpler due to confusing instructions

4

I only took out one star because one part of the build was very difficult. I recommend they have a deeper groove for the back panel so it can fit more easily.

4

Lovely wardrobe but the instructions were awful and very difficult to follow. Its built but not sure if all the bits are where they are supposed to be

5

Product is of very good quality, very sturdy and spacious inside. We did have fitter who put up wardrobe within 90 mins. Very pleased with purchase.
