Customer verdict: One reader told us: 'I have used B&Q numerous times for fitted kitchens. They are very good at taking your order (and your money) and arranging a delivery time, but when they turn up the guy on the lorry tells you, "actually we haven't got all of your order with us today". I have never done any project with them where it hasn't taken at least three deliveries before I've had everything. In one instance it took seven!.'
Another member said: ‘The quality of the kitchen was fine but the purchase procedure - receiving poor advice and wrong parts - means I would not recommend B&Q.’
Prices are correct as of March 2013 and are based on an eight-unit kitchen-galley kitchen.
