“Wow what a great product and service ”

Written on: 25/01/2016

Not a bad thing to say about nitrotek great product and also fast delivery no problems. The description of the product was spot on and I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking to buy an rc car. The website is great gives you all the facts and features about the product and is any easy website to use also it's great because if anything does happen to the car they have another section of the website were you can buy all spares parts from them just in case anything does break or… Read Full Review

“Vortex 370 RC helicopter”

Written on: 10/01/2016 by Davidsharman (0 reviews written)

I opened the box to find the body detached from the main chassis and spent an hour in vain trying to reattach it as it is the most pathetic arrangement ever invented. Whilst trying to attach the body I put the battery on charge and tried again in vain to fit 8 new Duracell AA batteries into the transmitter, because the battery carrier was faulty at one end which meant the last battery didn't fit. Having repaired the carrier, it then would not fit into the transmitter body far enough to be able… Read Full Review

“Unpleasant customer service”

Written on: 04/01/2016 by AlannahHammond280 (1 review written)

Only use this company if you are happy to be condescended to and treated like an idiot. I bought a car which comes in a box which states "ready to run" - ready to run if you buy some another tool to make it work. He is trying to suggest that the cost of the additional item is the problem - er no - my son just wanted to be able to use his christmas present before he went back to school. This is how you can expect to be spoken to if you contact them - Thank you for your Email. Had you… Read Full Review

“Nightmare company to deal with. ”

Written on: 23/12/2015 by simondavidson (1 review written)

This online business seems to be incapable of processing an order and reserving stock to cover the order. I placed my order on 16th Dec (wed) the web site promised same day despatch and next day delivery. When the goods had not arrived, I called them on Monday at 10am to be told that my order would be sent that day(28 minutes on hold). Two hours later I received an email asking me to choose an alternative. I called them (44 minutes on hold) and was taken through the alternatives. I was out so… Read Full Review

“Slow delivery”

Written on: 20/12/2015 by Alfredthegreat52 (1 review written)

Placed order for an in stock item and waited and waited. 1 week later, a phone call to say its not in stock and they dont know when it will be. As this was a christmas present for my son I agreed to another colour. I am still awaiting a confirmation email to say that this has been dispatched. Christmas is now 5 days away. Ive a feeling he wont have a big present to unwrap. Very diasapointed… Read Full Review

“WORST SERVICE IVE EVER COME ACROSS!!”

Written on: 18/12/2015 by kencarey (1 review written)

Ordered a present for my son 3 weeks before christmas, I never heard from them or the courier so I called them up a week before christmas and they promised me I would receive it before the 18th December. I rang them today 18th Dec and they told me it was still out of stock. I asked them why they didnt call me and they said because the warehouse guys never told them too...... What a big bunch of jokers!! Stay well clear!!!… Read Full Review

“Order failure”

Written on: 18/12/2015 by MarkEJH (1 review written)

I ordered an item on the 9th, called on the 11th and I was assured the item was in stock and the warehouse were very busy. I received no communication until I rang on the 18th and was then told the Black version of the product i.e. my ordered item, was out of stock and only white was available. I have accepted this alternative but am no nearer to receiving the product ordered. Very disappointed that I was not informed the Black item was out of stock. Unlikely to ever order from Nitrotek again. … Read Full Review

“Customer Service Appalling ”

Written on: 12/12/2015 by Sherrif (2 reviews written)

Nitro RC Kit and Bundle. Sadly I cant give it Nil stars... because that's what this company deserve I am a new customer and having trawled the web, Nitrotek appeared to be a good company, decent stock, next day delivery and leaders of RC Nitro products in the UK. I ordered one of the bundles, costing over £150. I then noticed I had not order an essential extra. There was no way to add it to the original order, so had to make a separate order. I decided to contact the company to see if… Read Full Review

“Great value cars, but buy the extras!”

Written on: 04/11/2015 by thewordz (1 review written)

This was my first purchase of a nitro car and the overall experience was pretty good. Don't expect too much from the term 'ready to race' though. These cars come ready built, but getting the engine tuned up takes time and patience and the manual was pretty poor. YouTube has loads of great HowTo videos, and I suggest watching a few to get the engine working as it should. Also, breaking in the engine is a must if you want it to last and perform properly, and be aware this will get you through a… Read Full Review
