Politics are never a good thing to discuss on a forum, but Brexit is good for the UK, i remember when it first came in... but i digress

We all have opinions. I have mine. You have yours. Neither is fact until it's a proven track record. So all we can talk in, is opinions.

"Brexit is good for the UK" has been spoken as if this is fact when in fact it's impossible for it to be claimed as fact, because the fact has not yet been proven.

Well, my order arrived this evening. Finally. You'd think it would be good news. However, there are items missing from my order, so it is incomplete.

I tried calling both numbers on their website. The first one rang out, and nobody answered. The second number rang and rang and rang before finally someone picked up only to tell me they don't speak English and that I should email them.

So now i've emailed them again.

Sigh.

I know others have said they've had a good experience with these guys. They have a nice looking website indeed. But i doubt i'll be giving them any more business after this experience. It's too much hard work, too much time to wait, and utter frustration that they can't get the order correct (even with 5-6 weeks to think about it!), and are unable to discuss issues on the phone.

This is my closing comment on this thread.

My missing cables arrived yesterday, so my order is now complete. I'm glad they came through for me in the end. I think these guys have good intentions and strive for a good reputation. Do i trust them? yes. I just think it's a shame that (perhaps) Brexit has put a taint on an otherwise good experience. Will i buy from them again? Perhaps. But only once the sour taste I have now has had a chance to subside a bit.

Hopefully, if i do order from them again, Brexit wont be an issue any more, and I can expect to receive my goods within 2 weeks rather than 2 months as it did on my first experience.

I also wish they were a bit more open to talking on the phone. English is clearly still a hurdle they need to overcome. Otherwise, i need to polish up my Spanish a bit more.

Good you resolve your issues. I know them for more than 20 years and are very helpful. But yes, not always things comes in a good way.
