Has anybody used the website teksave.co.uk? Are they legit?

Looking to buy part for phone but unsure of website???

Disgraceful comments in this thread about the company.

Accusations that the company operates from Hong Kong (false), accusations about the website being unprofessional and poorly written (who is to know if the workers are native English speakers, and from my own experience the website is perfectly fine) and worst of all accusations that people have created HUKD accounts to post fake good reviews for this company.

A quick google search on Teksave throws up this thread which can be very damaging to the company with false accusations, after ordering a product from them today I would like to personally set the record straight.

As a member of HUKD for nearly 8 years and a VIP for useful information (therefore a considered trusted member here) I registered an account today and found both their website easy to navigate for the part I wanted, the price was right, it only cost £2.50 more than buying on ebay from China which would have taken longer to be delivered, and cost £3 less than buying from a company in Germany which also would have taken longer.

Website and emails clearly lay out contact number from a Manchester office, as well as having a live chat button, what more seriously can anybody want?

Good comms with email order updates and finally a dispatch notification and tracking reference number via royal mail for an item I chose standard free delivery (on all orders over £5)

I am literally disgraced by the attitude by certain members in this thread that have led to unnecessary defensive comments been made by someone at Teksave.

Not Hongkong anymore, however there is address of company and phone number on "about us " page.
Our customer base is increasing gradually due to good customer service and very soon the website will be "Trade Only" so therefore not open to public !

Oh, you alter things when you are sussed out, I still would not touch this company with a barge pole, the website looks like it was written by a 3 year old.:(
#13
actually I have ordered a couple of things from the site. they came after 2 days. to repair my mobile phone. showed sent from somewhere in manchester but I couldn't figure out where from. I paid paypal so I wasn't really worried. anyway they delivered what I asked for so as far as it goes i'm happy with what I got.

you are very funny you don't know anything about me and wish to insult me with such paranoid comments. I run a large international electronics company, I bought some items as I said from tek save (2 in total). in this day and age if you are a company which cheats people you won't have a business for any longer than a week due to paypal blocking your accounts.

I saw the comments here and joined up especially to post my exprience as if I have been treated fairly I will give some of my precious time to at least stick up for the seller or the company. I can't speak for others, but when I ordered the items came after 2 days.

Think what you like, I have more important things in my life than trolling forums.
#17
intresting website they are already doing spares for the iphone 6 ??????????????????????????
#18
Have used this company many times. We collect in store in Manchester. Parts are top quality. Have used a few companies in the past and the parts (iPhone especially) from this company have not let me down.
#19
I use Teksave both instore and order online. When I go in my parts are ready for me to collect - no hanging around. If I order online they are delivered next day. Really good company to use :)
#20
Judging by this amazing use of English i wouldn't touch them, they seem very unprofessional:
* Long time use, eyes not easily fatigue, better protect vision
* Attaches for easy installation, but also allows for easy removal and reinstallation
* Glass material after high temperature steel processing, surface hardness up to eight - 9 h, impact resistance is strong, not easy and scratches
* 0.33 mm thickness of curved toughened glass,cutting fine,can perfect,after loading stick,to more agile,flat surface impact effect causes the handset screen more solid

No thank you! oO
#21
Bro these guys are totally legit. I visit their shop every Monday and by saying every Monday I actually mean every Monday. I normally use their website to check prices but actually buy direct from them. Pleaae don't just post bad comments about ppl you just "think" aren't legit.
#22
i used them all the time im based in blackpool it just save me time traveling all the way to manchester i have a shop mobilephone repair but they are friendly guys if you cant trust them give them a call its next day delivery anyway which is good for business ,if u cant trust but something small and cheap
#23
I have used this company for 3 years now. They are legit, based in Manchester and provide good quality parts and a great service. Doesn't matter what the area is like that they are based in as long as the products and service are good!
#24
hi friend please be care of teksave online order ,i made mistake make a small order i received order on time but what i order i haven't received same as i order and some also missing from order,it wasn't complete order it all,Do NOT order anything from them...they won't respond to your email

I will update my own findings as and when I receive the goods in the next couple of days (snow permitting)

My item arrived today, ordered yesterday afternoon...received recorded delivery, first class (using free postage over £5 option) well packaged.

No complaints at all from me, and disappointed to see so many hypothetical complaints against a company no one has even used...both ridiculous and damaging to the company involved as a google search for 'Teksave' this thread comes up as second result.
#27
I bought some parts for my HTC from here. They arrived but were counterfeit parts and didn't work. I tried contacting teksave about returning the parts but couldn't get a reply out of them! I wish I'd listened to the "don't touch them with a barge pole" advice. :(
