This company was a pleasure to do business with. Unfortunately I needed to return the items I purchased over the internet. The customer service was just as courteous and helpful in the return process as they were when taking my order.

I had a few questions about the lighting fixtures on their site and they not only spent time answering my questions, they also searched their site for items that met my criteria. This is a TOP NOTCH company. The Customer Service Rep was awesome!

I was somewhat hesitant to try to purchase another tiffany lamp online because I had a terrible experience last Christmas with another merchant. This was an EXCELLENT shopping experience, however. I linked onto the website and the first lamp I saw was amazing. I easily purchased it online about one week before Christmas. I didnt expect it to get here on time (I live in a very rural area and typically have problems with deliveries). Much to my astonishment, it arrived by the 23rd, only 7 days after my email order was placed. It was packaged beautifully to prevent damage. The lamp is gorgeous, the quality impeccable. None of that cheap glass, this is the real thing. And the base is also beautiful, not one of those plain bases, this one has tons of detail. I am so happy with this product that I plan to purchase more lamps from them! Hats off the Five Rivers for a wonderful internet shopping experience.

I received my light fixture yesterday via UPS. I was so excited and couldn't wait to open the box. I was holding my breath the whole time that I was unwrapping it fearful that something would be broken. NOT! It was absolutely perfect and I love it. We are getting our house painted next week and I will be switching out the fixtures. I think it will look great. Thank you again! I have told all my friends about the web site. Five Rivers is wonderful.

I shopped on and off the Internet for my dining room lighting fixture. Five Rivers had the best price and the best timing in terms of delivery. Since I had made sure to see the product in person before I bought it, I expected the fine quality of my Quoizel chandelier. However, I am delighted with how much the fixture has enhanced our dining room. I am now shopping for kitchen lighting fixtures, and I will go back to Five Rivers.

I called Five Rivers Lighting to order two bathroom fixtures from their web site, because I had additional questions not addressed in the web site. The customer service representative answered my questions, including that the fixtures I liked would not attach to the wall in reverse (upside down), as I needed. She then asked me what features I was looking for, and I described my specific wishes for the lighting fixtures. After considerable discussion, she directed me to bring up a set of fixtures that were too new to have been added to their web site as of the date I contacted them. I could see the fixtures online and ask questions at the same time. The recommended new fixtures were exactly what I was seeking -in fact, they were better, as they were LOWER in price! I ordered the fixtures on the spot, and they arrived on my doorstep within seven days, in perfect condition. My wife and I are very pleased with the quality and appearance of the lights, and I am awed by the extraordinary level of positive customer service given by this company. It felt like having a personal shopper at Five Rivers Lighting! The customer service representative gave so much time and thought in helping me achieve my goals - kudos to her and the entire company for supporting this kind of service. I would use this company again (undoubtedly will), and will recommend them to others without reservation.

I recently ordered two matching table lamps from Five Rivers. The price was very, very reasonable, reflecting an Internet sale. They arrived quickly, and I discovered I really only needed one of the lamps, owing to size. I called Customer Service and was assured I could return a lamp with no penalty, tho I of course had to pay the shipping. I later received an email from the company telling me the returned lamp had arrived and that my credit card had been refunded the proper amount. I would definitely do business with this company again--they are efficient and responsive and their prices are extremely competitive. An all around good experience.

I cant say enough good things about my experiences with Five Rivers Lighting. Their salespeople are knowledgeable, friendly, helpful. Their products great. Items all arrived on time and well packed. Ive bought two kitchen lights, three hallway sconces and now a center hall light. Ill probably be buying all my lamps from them.
Rating: Excellent

This was my first experience purchasing from Five Rivers Lighting. It was excellent. I received what I ordered quicker that I expected I would when I ordered. The merchandise was very fragile, but was very well packed and came to me in perfect condition. I would not hesitate to buy from this company again.
Rating: Excellent

I called the merchant on their 800 number to find out shipping time and got a very friendly helpful person who told me when the product would ship and when it would arrive. The product arrived in slightly less time than she had estimated. I also like the free shipping -- no hidden costs. I didn't return the product, but I chose this merchant partly because they allowed returns without a restocking fee. They also had the lowest price online for what I was ordering.

I bought a fairly expensive brass chandelier. My original choice was out of stock, but the customer rep at Five Rivers went out of her way and worked to help me find something that would meet my needs within my short deadline. The item received was better than the picture, and the price was a little more than half of retail--very competitive. Free shipping was offered. Excellent shopping experience.
Rating: Excellent

Have ordered from Five Rivers on several occasions - always have great pricing and fast service. Are able to get hard to find items that others do not always carry. First rate vender.
Rating: Excellent

They spent extra time in order to get me the best shipping method--free from the manufacturer! Both saleswomen I talked with were very helpful and pleasant. The solid brass outdoor light glass globe was slightly damaged in shipment. Five Rivers Lighting responded the same day to my e-mail and has a replacement globe coming--as the item was insured when shipped. Also, Five Rivers said it could take from 3-4 weeks to receive here in the middle of the Pacific, but it only took 5 days. My outdoor light from Hinkley is very well made and uniquely styled. If one were nitpicky one could say I spent $10 more than the lowest price I saw on internet for light, but I figure the salespeople ended up saving me more money by going the extra mile to save on shipping! Thank you!

I needed eight wall fixtures for our home, which is an old farm house that we were renovating. I also needed exact measurements on the fixtures so I knew for sure that they would work in the space. I talked to Anita at Five Rivers Lighting, and she was very helpful. She said she would get the exact measurements for me and would call me back. She called back within 1-2 hours with the measurements that I needed. I was very impressed with the quality of the fixtures for the price. But what I was impressed with most of all was the customer service.

The item I purchased from Five Rivers Lighting I had previously tried to purchase through an on-line operation. After almost three weeks and many calls to try and get status on my order (that companies on-line system for status never worked) I canceled my order and within an hour I had repurchased the same item through Five Rivers. The person I dealt with at Five Rivers assured me that the item I wanted was available at the manufacturer in South Carolina and that the item would be shipped to my Seattle area home the following day. It was ground shipped as promised and arrived one week after purchase. The person I dealt with provided me excellent service and timely update through e-mail.
Rating: Excellent

I was very impressed with Five Rivers. They let me know every step of the way when I could expect my delivery and where it was in the process. The person I spoke to on the phone was courteous, patient and helpful. As for the price, Im not really sure how to rate that, but it seemed reasonable when I compared it to the prices in stores I looked at. I cant find anything to criticize and I would definitely order from Five Rivers again.

I needed to exchange the original item I purchased for a larger one. I called customer service. They were great. Also have great prices. very courteous, fast service. Free shipping. Ive used other websites for lighting. This was by far the best.
Rating: Excellent

I was very pleased with the transaction. I found a chandelier I liked at the Five Rivers Lighting web site at a great price. I called on a Monday evening to check availability and they took my order right there on the phone, sent a prompt email to confirm it and provide shipping details, and the chandelier was delivered Thursday morning in excellent condition. They were helpful and courteous and I would certainly buy from them again.

I checked several websites that carry the same products as this company. This one had the easiest website to follow, offered the best prices, and had great PR skills. My order arrived quickly and in perfect shape. All future lamps I buy will be from this merchant.

I recently purchased some lamps and a chandelier from Five Rivers Lighting and I just could never say enough nice things to express my feelings. The service was wonderful, the follow up after the purchase was wonderful, the expertise of the personnel was wonderful. The price of 3 lamps and the chandelier was $134 more than the price of the chandelier alone at the furniture store I shopped at before I found Five Rivers. Thank you Five Rivers for all your help and kindness:)

Due to a bad color choice on my part I had to return my order and have it replaced with another color. The return process was very easy and the customer service representatives I spoke with were very helpful. My replacement lights were delivered timely and I was very happy with my experience with Five Rivers. I will do business with them again.
Rating: Excellent

Flawless purchase process and good follow email confirming order and then again with info about shipping dates. Customer service people were smart and responsive. Overall excellent experience and I would use again. Products are very good as well.

I was wary of ordering large, custom chandeliers from a company online, but their pricing made it worth the risk. My fears were unfounded. The staff was always accessible by phone and email. They were always extremely helpful. When an item was damaged in transport, they responded immediately to get a replacement expedited. I would not hesitate to order from them again and would recommend them without reservation. Their consistent level of customer support could not be a fluke!

I recently purchased a chandelier from Five Rivers and was delighted with the outcome of this online process. I could not ask for a better experience. The price was the best; customer service was helpful and pleasant to deal with; delivery was on-time and in good condition. I recommend them highly.
Rating: Excellent

This is an excellent merchant! I was extremely happy with their wonderful customer service, selection and pricing. I ordered lighting for a whole house, and on the majority of the items the pricing was better than the builders discount I was offered at our local lighting store. I would definitely use them again.
Rating: Good

The product is excellent. Shipped in excellent condition and the price is great. The only flaw was the packing slip versus the contents. The packing slip noted all four items, but after unpacking and carefully going through the boxes there was one item missing though not noted anywhere. When I called about it, it was not Five Rivers but the lighting company in Vermont. They merely said, Oh, that will be sent next week! Excellent customer service would have apologized for the inconvenience and would have inquired if the other items in the shipment were acceptable.
Rating: Excellent

What a wonderful experience my interaction with Five Rivers was. I ordered 3 pendant lights and a single chandelier. Local merchants told me it would be two months, and their prices were significantly more than Five Rivers. Five Rivers delivered the products in less than 3 weeks, and the lighting fixtures were all packed beautifully. Would I order from them again? Absolutely!
Rating: Excellent

I ordered 3 Hinkley Lighting fixtures. Two were larger for the front of the garage. One was smaller, but matching, for the front porch. The customer service rep that took my order was polite, informative and very personable. I also saved almost 50% over retail by ordering through them. I was very happy with the shipping costs since this consisted of 3 pretty large boxes. All arrived earlier than I had anticipated. As soon as the items were shipped, I was notified by the seller and given a link for tracking. I could also view the anticipated date of shipment 3 days before the items arrived. I would not hesitate to order from them again.

I ordered an expensive dresser from FIVE RIVERS, which was a challenge to schedule shipping for. However, they stayed in constant e-mail contact with me, keeping me up to date on its progress. My contact with the company was nothing but courteous and responsive. And the dresser is the finest piece of furniture I own--absolutely "top drawer," as they say. I highly recommend the company.
Rating: Excellent

No complaints with these guys. Took my order correctly. Customized one item. Sent me the tracking info without me calling. And most important the prices were excellent.

Great staff, fast response. Excellent pricing on lamps. Another retailer wanted to charge a $45.00 rush charge on top of shipping to get the product in less than 6-8 weeks! They obviously didn't get my business.

I was impressed with the number of communications concerning my order. Ordering on the net is not always a positive experience. I would use Five Rivers again.

Five Rivers offered exactly what i wanted at a reasonable price. the website was very easy to use and they post a link for the security that they use on the website. the only problem that i had was that i received 2 of one item instead of one. i was only billed for one. this was not five rivers error, it was quoizels error. the customer service people were VERY courteous! i will shop five rivers again. thanx!!!!

Even though the product was not available in the color that I ordered, I was contacted immediately regarding this issue. After I agreed to change the order, it was shipped within two days. Good customer service!

In the case of Five Rivers, it's too bad that Yahoo Shopping does not have "Outstanding" on their rating form. Although most of my internet shopping experiences are positive, this is without doubt the best store I have used to date. The web site was very easy to navigate and had all of the information I needed to make an informed choice. Five Rivers was extremely helpful in ascertaining whether the lighting fixtures I wanted were in stock and where, and very accurate in their estimate of shipping time. When we had difficulty making contact through my primary Email address, they went out of their way to establish contact through a secondary Email. I was hesitant about placing this order because I had a particular need to receive the items on or before a certain date and the lighting had to be shipped from Quoizel - Five Rivers kept close track of the order and Emailed me a UPS tracking number as soon as the items were shipped. The fixtures arrived well within the time frame stated by Five Rivers and also within my required time. Five Rivers pricing was, of course, excellent - I was unable to find better prices for Quoizel anywhere on the net and the shipping ($43 for four boxes) was reasonable. Even the "ship for free" sites could not beat the total price from Five Rivers. I will not hesitate to use Five Rivers again. Thank you for a very good experience.

I had a question. I called the 800 number and they answered my question. I ordered the lights and a week later they were at my door.

The salesperson I spoke with while placing my order was extremely helpful, pleasant and knowledgeable. He took the time to describe the different finishes used on their products. I have been searching for sometime for a specific size and type of light fixture and Fiver Rivers provided me with the perfect product. I received my product within the estimated time frame and email regarding my order. I would recommend them to my family and friends.

We received our Quoizel fixtures today... we ordered two from you, and both UPS'd together... and dang they are beautiful! I only have one complaint... after "checking them out" to insure we didn't have any shipping damage, My wife has been flogging me to "get 'em burning!" So, I now report that the most beautiful ILLUMINATED Quoizel fixture in town is now "burning" in our kitchen dining area... and, I predict, the entryway fixture will also be "burning" within the next 24 hours. Thank you, for your great service with our order. We could not be happier and, I trust it goes without saying, we shall return to order more... have a wonderful holiday and God Bless!

The email was especially helpful. The responses were always timely and informative. Prior to this experience, I had reservations ordering from a store in Idaho (I live in Florida) and having a large item shipped to my home. But, after this experience, I would highly recommend Five Rivers to anyone who's looking for fairly-priced, high quality furniture and great customer service!

Great price, shipped right away with not one but two personal emails confirming that it was in stock and when it was shipped. Thank you!

Since it has been awhile since I ordered, I don't remember the order form. And I know I had to pay shipping. But I don't remember any amount being written anywhere. So when it arrived and the bill was over $100.00 I was surprised. (I think that was amount) It was a large light fixture. No big deal - just wanted to respond to your questionnaire.

I called the 800 number on a weekend and had a question about a particular piece of furniture that the customer service person couldn't answer. She apologized and said she would see if she could find someone to help me. A few minutes later I was talking to a man who could give a lecture on furniture making. He wasn't trying to sell me on the piece that I was asking about; he was just helping me to know what to look for in a good piece of furniture. At the end of the conversation, he gave me his cell phone number and told me to call with any follow up questions. I asked for his name and he said it was John. His last name? No need, he was the only John there -- and, by the way, he happened to be the owner. Talk about humble. I had a number of conversations with John after I purchased the item and he made sure I received the shipment and that everything was to my liking. I should note that I received the furniture four days after I ordered it -- six days sooner than anticipate! It was expertly packaged and the carton barely had a dent in it. This is bar none the best online purchase experience I've had. ... Oh, if you're curious, the furniture was of exceptional quality and I paid about 20% less than a similar piece at a high-end furniture store that shall remain nameless. --
Rating: Excellent

I give Five Rivers the highest rating possible. The staff was quick in responding to my emails and that was a big factor in my satisfaction. I also received my purchase much quicker than I expected. I will definitely email them when I am in the market for more furniture, etc. It is not often you find such satisfaction with a company on the internet.

Here is what was said on January 2nd "I wanted to let you know that your order has been sent to the manufacturer and it is scheduled to ship around the 21st of January. If you have any further questions regarding your order please let me know." Its January 30th - no merchandise.

We had a wonderful experience with Five Rivers and would highly recommend them to anyone. We had seen a Quoizel lamp in a local store but it was damaged and the style was discontinued. We were lucky enough to find a pair of them at Five Rivers and at about 1/2 price. They came UPS right away and were perfect. Thanks for such great service, Five Rivers!

Easy to order from, easy to deal with. A return was painless. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Five Rivers comment: You can see from some of the comments above that shipping can be an issue. Large items that cannot go by UPS can be particularly challenging. We do our best to get you the best rates and we pass our costs on without an up-charge. Because the items we handle have such a wide range of sizes and values we haven't been able to calculate freight automatically for everything on the website. When we can't we will, however, confirm a freight cost to you after we know the details of the order so that you may cancel the order if it isn't satisfactory.
