“Mgp scooter”

Written on: 10/08/2011 by Veedubjunky (1 review written)

I was recommended Skates by a friend who had bought a scooter for her Son. I did a search on the net and quickly found the Skates site which I must say was great, packed full of info and shiney stuff! At very reasonable prices!, I placed my order there and then using the online secure payment service, easy! The order was confirmed by email within seconds! I recieved another email and a text the following day and the scooter was delivered just over 24 hrs after I had placed my order and with… Read Full Review

“Quick delivery and great price.”

Written on: 05/08/2011

After searching high and low for this item at a reasonable price we hit on www.skates.co.uk. I placed my order just before 3pm and paid for what I thought was a two day service. The next morning the courier arrived with the scooter, and a five minute assembly later, despite ropey manufacturers instructions, the kids were arguing over who got first go, so mummy did. Ordered entirely online and I found it to be a quick and seamless service. I got texts to update me on my order and emails too… Read Full Review

“Is this a scam?”

Written on: 29/07/2011 by Kirsty70 (1 review written)

Ordered the vtriker scooter for my son and it was delivered in good time...but was faulty and couldn't be put together. Phoned to report this: was told to fill in the online form and that the warehouse would be in touch in a couple of days to arrange for the faulty goods to be collected and the replacement to be delivered. Two weeks later, there has been no such call; none of my emails have been answered; two voicemails have been ignored; an attempt to use the call back facility on the website… Read Full Review

“Selling Items, Taking Payment but Items Not In Stock? ”

Written on: 30/06/2011

We ordered a scooter for my son on Tuesday. The item was listed as next day delivery with a good delivery cost of £3.95. The scooter was a treat for a birthday party my son was attending where all children were bringing their scooters. No scooter arrived the next day, no scooter the day after. No way to leave voicemails on the number provided on the website though someone did try to call us back. After two emails we received an email on Thursday evening saying the 'warehouse' had said the… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/05/2011

I order my scooter via the website which i found to be very user friendly and only took a couple of minutes.

The scooter was delivered less than 24 after i placed the order and i only paid for the regular delivery not 24hr.

I wish all purchases could be made as smoothly as this. i think other companies could learn a lot from you.

Many Thanks, Keep up the good work… Read Full Review

“Dreadful service. Ordered scooter which was "in stock"...”

Written on: 20/05/2011

Dreadful service. Ordered scooter which was "in stock" for my son's birthday. After 8 working days it had not turned up. Each time I called I was assured it would arrive the next day or they had no idea where it was. At one stage a woman apologised and said they would give me some free goods but even then they did not turn up. By the time I cancelled the order it was past the birthday and I had to pay an extra £15 for a next day delivery. Avoid this company if you want goods on time… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/05/2011

Awful Awful Awful. I called them to order an item, I explained that it was extremely urgent. They assured me it would be with me within 3-5 days, so I went ahead. After 5 days.. nothing arrived. After many phone calls to them, they kept assuring me my order was going to arrive 'soon'. Waited... nothing arrived... kept calling and they kept assuring me I'd receive it soon.. nothing arrived... then after more waiting, still no sign of my delivery, I call them up again, they insist that my order… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/05/2011 by G9SES (1 review written)

I ordered some skates for my daughters birthday on 23 April, I was told that the skates would be delivered on the Wednesday which was 27th (we have been in the middle of bank holidays). Unfortunaely it is now 5th May and I am still waiting. My main gripe with this company is that their customer service is terrible. When I do manage to talk to somebody they are not at the warehouse but the warehouse doesn't call back. They have taken my money & all I want now is my 12 year old daughter's… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/04/2011 by Campbell81 (3 reviews written)

I bought some skates from this company and there was no problem, they were the price I expected and arrived when I expected them to arrive.
I felt the urge to write this after seeing some bad reviews. Whilst they may be bad, they may also be fantastic, but from my experience they are what you would expect and company that gives you what you want and when you want it. Can't ask for much more… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/03/2011 by headcase trace (1 review written)

excellent selection of Skates along with great knowledge and communication from the customer services department. I am so pleased with my Odyssey skates, they are so comfortable it feels like i am wearing trainers! They are easy to put on and dont restrict the movement in your ankles like some skates do.
The communication from the team was second to none and they answered every question put to them, i would definately recommend the skates and skate.co.uk to friends and family… Read Full Review
