"Matters didn't start well, as the goods (2 compost bins) were left where I'd asked them to be put if I was OUT. But, I was IN; the courier just hadn't bothered to ring the bell - and it IS a loud ring! Upon unwrapping the two items I found them to be dripping wet - not just damp, but water actually running out. How long they'd been in that condition is impossible to say, but this was during the very long hot spell of 2018! They were so wet and swollen they had to be stood to dry out for 3 days before they could be assembled. One can only imagine the poor storage conditions at Primrose. There are no assembly instructions - one is advised to find a relevant pdf on Primrose's website, except that what is shown bears no relationship whatsoever to the product supplied. Is there no-one at primrose who takes responsibility for the accuracy of these matters? The best advice I can offer is to study the photo of a completed bin on the website, then the process becomes fairly straightforward. The parts themselves fit together quite well, (use a mallet) those that are already not broken that is. It was necessary to repair (glue and screw) seven bin front angled members before they could be used. Fully assembled, each bin was placed upon a double course of bricks to raise it above soil level, thus, hopefully, extending its life. At least, that's the theory! Overall, and very much taking into consideration the price, these bins are quite adequate and should give good service for a few years. Not, I would add in my opinion, the 15 years claimed by Primrose - they are not THAT good, quality wise. But, as with everything, time will tell."

"There weren't any instructions, either with the product or online for assembly, the closest was for a different bin. I'm no DIY expert but only managed to build it by looking at the pictures on the website. Pretty poor show on that front, even a one page document would have helped. Product as described though although a few screws also missing"

"Relatively easy to assemble, although wood components were wet so the joints were very tight, one split so had to repair the joint. Pack of screws missing from one of the two bins I ordered. The bins look good now they are assembled and are an ideal size, very good value, I would order agan."

"Good idea but needs modification to make the removable front slats work as intended, ie slide in and out relatively easily. Widened the slots in the removable slats and reduced the thickness across the slats between the slots. They now operate extremely well. Manufacturer needs to produce front slats differently from the static ones, ie wider slots and less thick wood. Slats easily broken at corners, mainly, and will need replacing. Good looking product but to produce the first two bins I had to use parts from the third bin which I must now get replaced."

"I ordered 2 items. The first delivery arrived and was just left in the middle of the drive way and only one item and that was not complete. Phoned customer services, very apologetic. arranged for re delivery of 2nd item and missing pieces. missing pieces arrive but no second item. Phone again "they are sorry". I'll get it delivered tomorrow. Again no item arrives, I waited in all day. Phone again, apparently the replacement item was never dispatched because they actually put the order for a replacement through the system. Forth time lucky they delivered. Finally I have all items even if the wood is damaged slightly in places."

Answer from Primrose: "Hi\n\nPlease accept our apologies once more that the item first arrived missing a unit and some parts and then that the replacement wasn't shipped as quickly as it should have been. I can see that the last operator you spoke with upgraded the shipping of the replacement to a Saturday service to ensure it reached you as fast as could be achieved. \n\n- Primrose "
