“awful company ”

Written on: 19/02/2015 by pdBurgess1967 (1 review written)

The website its self is fine. It the supplier we had tons of issues with. 3 months it took us to get a bumper and even then the only one we received was broken They offered a replacement and that took 2 months with constant ringing when they finally admitted the courier had' broken' it again. Rude staff members- the manager constantly told them to tell us he wasn't in even though we could hear him in the background. I'm not completely sure why first choice have them as a company on here as if… Read Full Review

“NOT NICE PEOPLE TO DEAL WITH”

Written on: 16/02/2015 by ReyHastings178 (1 review written)

I have used 1st choice many times to find engine parts and usually find what I need, the problem I have is not with the suppliers and breaker yards but with 1st choice them self. I have needed to ring them on many occasions and I am greeted with a load of sarcastic people who talk down to me, I say stay away. I can get spoke to in this manor for free with out having to pay for the privilege… Read Full Review

“absolute rip off”

Been waiting 2 weeks for a vw passat door, ring supplier every other day and just get excuse after excuse. E mailed 1st choice and they just say your contract is with the supplier and not them and they accept no liability. Funny how the supplier has changed address 3 times in a year and has terrible reviews yet 1st choice keep them on there books… Read Full Review

“Service over a holiday period”

Written on: 05/01/2015 by Enham (1 review written)

An alternator for a Jap import Hilux was urgently needed over Christmas to meet a ferry deadline. 1st Choice identified suppliers open and by picking up ourselves from Autotronic Services Ltd (one of the very few who responded over the break)we managed to get the right spare with 2 hours to go. Both ferry bookings, cross channel and Barcelona to Mallorca, were met on time and the reconditioned unit worked perfectly, saving significant potential losses. We recommend 1st Choice identify suppliers… Read Full Review

“Simply The Best”

Written on: 09/12/2014 by philphoenix (1 review written)

having tried several other sites I was on the verge of giving up in my attempt to find an alternator for my car. Being 15 years old I knew it would be difficult, but thought I'd give it one more try - am I glad I did! Finding 1st Choice Spares site I put in my request, and thinking I'd get another "Sorry", in less than a minute my phone went, and they said we have one in stock. Asking the price was another shock, having previously been quoted £60 - £95 I couldn't believe my luck. Paying… Read Full Review

Each time I went to collect the car I drove for an hour and the big end went so it went back at my expense I eventually got a promised for a refund and 3… Read Full Review
