What Makes The Oakland 2 Drawer Filing Cabinet Great?

I am pleased with the product which looks attractive for a filing cabinet, drawers work efficiently, reasonably priced. However your service was completely chaotic. Having seen the product in your Harrogate store, I wa not allowed to purchase directly and had to order it when I returned home. I contacted the store to place an order but was informed that I could not pay for it over the phone. When an email arrived from you requesting payment it was impossible to use your website so I phoned through to your head office. After 35 minutes waiting for a response, the lady who took my call was very polite but said she was also unable to take payment. I was then transferred to your accounts dept when eventually I was able to pay for the product I had ordered. This system is totally confusing and time wasting. It is unlikely that I will make further purchases from you. The only plus was that your delivery team arrived exactly as scheduled and did a first class job! A pity the rest of your organisation can't emulate their skills.

I can't praise the Cotswold Co highly enough. From beginning to end, communication was excellent. Although purchased in the Sale, and with a discount code, I got free delivery and was offered a free upgrade to have it delivered sooner. The delivery came in the time slot expected, and I had a courtesy call when they were 1/2 an hour away. The product is lovely - just as expected and blends well with existing light oak from other ranges. The drawers are a little stiff, but they do fit well and the fact that the files now face forward (a design modification I understand) is a bonus. Beautiful furniture at a great price with brilliant service.

My Filing Cabinet is a beautiful piece of furniture and I love it. The only thing that I found wrong was that my filing folders were no use in it. However my friend w is a true friend, travelled round Glasgow as well as on the IPad, and found filing folders to fit. I am still putting my paperwork in to the folders ,and will keep me busy for some time.At least I know the cabinet will not fall on me like my old one. As I said when I bought it, it is a beautiful piece of furniture. Thank you, Yours sincerely, Jean W. Ross

Bit disappointed with this as although is the same line as my sideboard (which I am very happy with) the colour is not as warm, a much flatter colour. Plus the width of the cabinet was not as in the book. Was at least 6cm wider therefore did not fit where I originally wanted it to go so room not looking quite as good as I imagined. Looking at other reviews I see the orientation to the hanging files has changed so assume this is the difference in width. Would have preferred to know this as I may not have purchased due to this factor.

The filing cabinet wood carcase is strong and well made.The actual filing mechanism within the carcase could do with more design consideration and finish as the metal runners (on which the files hang) is sharp to the touch at both the front and back end. It seems that the metal runners have just been cut and left sharp. This could cause an injury to the hand whist moving files in the cabinet. Additionally, the metal runners stop short at both the back and front, thus files can slip off the runner.

4

Cabinet has a very nice finish, the drawers run smoothly. A sturdy unit that looks great with the rest of our oak furniture. We would have given 5 stars if the cabinet was lockable. Service in store was good but when it came to delivery they changed the date 4 times, (the original date was convenient), that did not suit us as we both work full time, and to get a Saturday delivery they wanted to charge 15 for the pleasure. In the end one of us had to take a holiday to receive delivery.

Beautiful filing cabinet. Fantastic quality and lovely detailing. Delivered exactly when it was supposed to. Sadly, despite what I thought was careful measuring on my part it didn't fit in the space I wanted. Contacted customer services who were super kind and helpful and arranged a collection to return. I had a full refund within a week and wasn't charged for the return. I'm so impressed by the Cotswold Company, I will definitely be a returning customer.

Beautiful. We have been looking for a filing cabinet to match our oak furniture for a long time and this is it. Delivered and packed professionally. You can use foolscap suspension files facing sideways or we use A4 suspension facing forward. Lovely smooth drawers and a pleasure to look at and use. The one and only disappointment is that it does not have a lock, but that is the only thing. Thank you, very pleased.

3

Whilst the dimensions for this filing cabinet are listed correctly on the website, the item I received is definitely different proportions to the picture and the drawers have solid sides rather than open-sided. It only takes foolscap hanging files facing front despite previous reviews which is disappointing as Id bought and opened A4 ones ready to hang. I am currently waiting for Cotswold Co to investigate.....

5

I'm delighted with this piece. It came promptly the next day after ordering, is of excellent quality, looks great and works very well. Note, however, that the file hangers go in depth-wise, i.e. perpendicular to the front of the cabinet. This is not really a problem, except that it is slightly harder to read the tags and finger through the contents than it is in the more usual parallel arrangement.

3

Very satisfactory item when it finally arrived, but TERRIBLE delivery service (waited in all day for no-show of promised delivery, then at 2nd attempt delivery driver gave up on trying to find the address). Final insult was an attempt to 'fine' me 30 for a "failed delivery", when it should have been me fining them. Unlikely to order again, having been treated so shabbily.

5

Lovely quality piece of furniture . I can't fault this company , they were more than happy that exchange goods when I made a mistake choosing the range at no extra cost to me , communication has been great arranging delivery has been done with ease and it's such a pleasure to have beautifully assembled furniture delivered to my home , flat packs are a nightmare ????????

5

As always this is a great quality item, my forth order from The Cotswold Company, having furnished both bedrooms, and the study this item was bought to provide the finishing touch to this room. Each room is decorated in a different style which is what I like. I know I have quality items well finished without compromising on choice.

5

I had been looking for an oak filing cabinet foe a while. So pleased with this purchase. It is lovely and matches the other items in my small study beautifully. Excellent value for money and well packed for transit purpose. Delivered promptly and the delivery staff were very professional and helpful.Highly recommended.

5

Bookcase very pleasing to the eye plenty of room for masses of our books that were kept in the loft after our downsize move. The shelves are adjustable which is handy for some of our rather large books. My husband found it easy to assemble but did say the screw heads seemed soft which made it difficult to tighten them.

3

Adequate for the boring job required of it. Not cheap plus the threatening tone of the pre-delivery email warning of a 60 'fine' if you're not in when the delivery man arrives is unwelcome. Getting rid of all the packaging isn't easy either. Why can't they take it with them? Still hoovering up bits of polystyrene.

5

We. Are very pleased with the filing cabinet, just right and what we wanted. Excellent value too. The delivery was so good and even came earlier than we thought. I would like to say a big thank you to them also. If we plan to purchase anything we will definitely contact you. Yours sincerely Jean Booth.

5

This is a sturdy piece of furniture and was bigger than I had imagined, although I did check out the measurements. It appears wider and more square than it looks on the website photos. I think it probably needs to be this wide in order to fit suspension files inside. Mine fit snuggly but they are fine.

4

Although I should have realised from the measurements, this was a bit bigger than I thought it would be and it would have been a nice touch to provide just a few hanging files, but on the whole I am very pleased with it. A tad on the pricey side but it is beautifully made and built to last.

5

We are delighted with the Oakland 2 drawer filing cabinet, I thought I had already sent a review. The cabinet is very sturdy and we like the fact that the two drawers cannot be opened at the same time thus preventing the cabinet from falling forward. Mrs. I.D. Dolder

4

The filing cabinet does serve its purpose BUT not quite in the way I intended. At my initial 'phone enquiry I should have asked whether the foolscap files are facing forwards. They actually have to face sideways and this makes the files more difficult to use.

5

This is a lovely piece of furniture. But as well as looking good it is so useful for keeping files at home which I particularly needed. I love the size and the look of it as my room is not large and I have been able to organise my paperwork in a stylish way.

5

Looks good and is well constructed. It is "Fullscape" size rather than A4 so has plenty of space, but is that little bit bigger so do check the dimensions on the website. Great value for money as are all of the Cotswold Company products we have bought.

3

Nice timber, seems good value, but.... very poorly assembled with cheap drawer gear, screws misfitted, in fact the drawers wouldn't open as the screws jammed everything up. Regardless of that, if you don't mind 'fixing' it, its is a nice piece.

5

Great filing cabinet, excellent build quality and finish. Looks great with our other oak furniture. Make sure you measure the drawers before purchasing your files! Not the most polite of delivery companies however unfortunately.

5

A very smart, good quality piece of office furniture that would look good in any room in the house.Full A4 size file drawers and a nice action on the runners.No lock.Would recommend as a smart alternative to the usual metal box.

3

Good-Looking product which seems well made and at a reasonable price.However the rails are set slightly too close together which is irritating. It means that the hanging files are a very tight fit and don't slide easily.

5

The cabinet looks good as a piece of furniture but is functional as a filing cabinet too. The drawers are wide enough to accept foolscap files and they open and close on metal runners easily. Excellent delivery service

5

Although I haven't had time to fill the filing cabinet yet, I am very pleased with the quality and look of the item. It is very substantial and heavy and looks more like a piece of furniture in my living room.

5

This has settled in very well and is just what was needed. It is surprising what can be fitted into the roomy drawers. The whole buying and delivery experience was really impressive.Thank you. Jane Hanley

5

Have sent several e mails saying how disappointed I am with service from you re filing cabinet as I cannot open bottom drawer, not up to your usual standard.M. Helen MacGregor.PS Still waiting for help.

5

Very good piece of home office furniture. Solid but not heavy, moveable and flexible and easy to store papers in files. Delivery was prior to that advertised and the process was timely and efficient.

5

Excellent quality and the oak matches my other furniture in my study. The cabinet contains all my files and the top drawer is deep enough for other items. Would recommend for any home office/study.

5

This is an exceptionally well finished and solid piece of furniture ! We are very pleased with it and will definitely purchase from Cotswold again . In fact we are going to look for a book case !

5

Very nice product, beautifully made, slightly larger than I anticipated and had to order suspension files to fit, but overall very pleased with it - doesn't look out of place in my sitting room.

5

Delivery and despatch on time. As a customer I was impressed with the delivery dialogue from the E Mails.Product is first class but I was mildly surprised the drawers have no lock.George Jardine

5

Everything is perfect except for the amount of packing around the products.5 dustbin bags of broken up polystyrene and a 1.2 m high pile of cardboard cut up to 450mm x 225mm, and pieces of mdf

3

Ok quality but not as good as things weve bought in the past. The runners had fallen off on one side and I had to screw them back on. Drawers dont seem that sturdy. Also took months to arrive.

4

The Oakland Filing Cabinet is a handsome piece of furniture, finished to a high standard. It is a perfect fit for a home office, blending in well with the surroundings.

4

Files drop off end of file runners and jamb.Very nice product would highly recommend , very pleased although a little overpriced when you include free delivery @ 9.99.

4
