“absolute rip off”

Written on: 18/01/2015 by HowardPorter6 (1 review written)

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

I have never been so angry in my life I used this website to get an engine for my bmw.

“Not trusted suppliers - be careful.”

Written on: 11/11/2014 by Angelina.g (1 review written)

I thought I would save some money by buying parts here instead of getting them elswhere. I bought a head lamp and a tail lamp for my car. I called the supplier beforehand to ask if the lamps are in good condition and explained why I needed to replace them. I received the parcel very quickly but after opening it I was very upset. The tail lamp was alright - cannot complain about it but the head lamp was even worse then the one I want to replace.. I wanted to replace mine as it was fogged and it… Read Full Review
