The Homebase product range is extensive. With thousands of products available for all your DIY and gardening needs, there is very little you won't find. Not only will you be able to shop premium brands like Farrow & Ball, Flymo and Dulux, Homebase often offer their own version of many products at a lower price. This leaves a number of options available to you when undertaking your next big home or garden project.
Homebase offers a number of delivery options. Whilst some postcodes may require longer wait times, many retailers don't offer delivery at all to remote UK locations, so we appreciate this is still available. Named day delivery is perfect for those of us wanting to plan around our work life. Unless you spend £75, the cheapest delivery option is £6. This is fairly expensive and doesn't really become a viable option if you're only looking to get a small plumping part or spare delivered. Click & Collect is free and most products can be reading within the hour.
Homebase returns are available within 30 days. Taking your product into the store is the easiest way to get a refund, but getting something collected can be a tedious process. If you can't take your product to the store, you'll need to get in contact with customer services to arrange your return. We would definitely love it if this process could be made simpler with more return options.
Homebase offers strong customer services, with live chat and phone assistants available for you 7 days a week. You can also pop in to your nearest store to get assistance from an employee. There are a few things such as returns that we did wish didn't require contacting customer services, purely from the perspective of speed and convenience.

Homebase has had a number of owners and financial troubles, with the first sale taking place in 2000, ending up in the hands of SChroder Ventures. In 2002, it was sold again, this time to GUS plc, before becoming part of the Argos Retail Group. In 2016, ownership was transferred to Wesfarmers before changing hands to Hilco in 2018. Since 2020 Homebase as enjoyed a return to profit, with most of its sales taking place through the website.
