    WARNING: SoBaby.co.uk

    Hi all,

    Just thought I'd issue a warning that SoBaby.co.uk are being dissolved tomorrow. Their website is not operational & they appear to be winding down.

    From Companies House:


    Name & Registered Office:
    SOBABY ENTERPRISES LIMITED
    169 WEYHILL ROAD
    ANDOVER
    HAMPSHIRE
    ENGLAND
    SP10 3LJ
    Company No. 06835255

    Status: Dissolved 12/10/2010


    I've also found that they have still been trading as "Big Imagination" - but their website also seems to be down today......


    I've had a pram delivered (misses due for an induction tonight), but it is faulty & I cannot contact SoBaby for a replacement !

    I've contacted my credit card company who say I must contact the liquidators & ask them for a replacement. If they refuse, I must get it in writing so I can get a refund on my purchase.

    Does anyone know how to find out who the liquidator is ?

    I've also contacted Consumer Direct to see if they know, but I want to get this sorted out ASAP as I may be bringing a baby home tomorrow morning !!

    Thanks

    Chris

    Good luck with the impending birth hope everything goes smoothly. If the pram is a big brand name what about contacting the manufacturer?

    Hi Gari,

    I have also done that, but again, got no response as of yet ?? (BabyStyle).

    If I get the name of the liquidator I can sort it out with the bank

    There is a thread a Mumsnet about them...............it appears there have been problems for a while....

    The link to babystyle is below

    Given that sobaby are likely to ignore you - the short term solution would be to probably contact babystyle....

    Thanks Gari.

    Yes I read that when I was seeing if any other people have had any issues with them......

    Cant trace the liquidator though as of yet !

    do you know what bank they are with? do you have a bill from them that might help out with that? perhaps phoning the bank that they are with will help, i am sure they will know who is dealing with it.

    Chris - I'd force the cc company to chase the matter up, that's what they're there for IMO.

    Good luck with the birth!

    I hope all went well with the induction. I brought my Quinny from twoleftfeet who went under and when Quinny released stap extenders and a larger seat unit for free as the ones sold with the buggy was to small the manufacturer sent them free to me with proof of purcase. Good luck i hope they sort it out for you soon.

    Hi Chris,

    Did you ever find any info on the liquidators?

    We were still trying to chase up a delivery from last year, wife paid using her credit card (Barclaycard) so we are going to look into claiming the money back.

    Hope all went well and you are enjoying the little one.

    Cheers,
    Jamie

    Hi Jamie,

    Responded to your pm mate.

    I didn't find the liquidators & the cc company were not much use without it

    I could chase it up again though as there may be somemore info on it now.

    I'll post up if I find anything.

    Cheers
