Online shops, Gathering a list :

Found 25th May 2007
Now this has probably be done before but i can't find the thread!

Basically i'd like to gather a list of Trusted online shops people have used, A brief description of the service and the biggest amount of money you've spent at that shop (Obviously buying a £5 dvd varies from a £1000 tv), I'm thinking of creating a list of said trusted shops putting them in an Alphabetical list which i'll keep updating by editing this first post.

If you have something negative to say about a shop, Please only state the facts.

Everyones List so far : :

Bump, That should be the list done, If you've noticed any missing please post, Thanks!

Just checked my ebuyer history because of this thread - 40 orders dating back to July 2002. Seems I have a few orders around £500, largest being £584.61, and I've spent a total of £4583 there (:w00t:). Had a few problems with missing or wrong items in first couple of years but more recently no problems at all with deliveries etc. Had to return a few items, again generally no problem. CS definately improved in last two or three years.

SVP - only made 3 orders there (taking advantage of GC so all about £30) but items were as described, very good value and excellently packed. Website seems to have honest and detailed info which is a bonus. Haven't tried there CS.

xomy.com - £640, slow delivery however this was due to item being out of stock, when it came instock delivery was very next day.

This didnt last long did it lol

Nope! :giggle:

I was thinking of an easy way to do it, But without taking up 2 pages full of recommendations it was getting difficult! :giggle:

Avoid Kaleidoscope. Advertised liquidiser, said it had been dispatched. Then ran out of stock. Kept me waiting 3 months then said order could not be fulfilled, as no stock.

The liquidiser is avaialable on lots of other sites - for £30 more. Might have been a misprice - badly handled.

Pixmania - £400 - Asked for copies of 2 forms of identity (passport, driving licence etc) AFTER taking the money, before they would send the product and then took about 5 months of constant pestering by me before we finally got a refund (Although they kept saying that it would be done, so good job we checked!)

Vetuk.co.uk ~ £10 fast delivery
petplanet.co.uk ~ £70 fast delivery, though dont bother ringing them, rubbish CS.
