I was hesitant about using these guys from the number of negative reviews there are on the web. But as there was an 'only for this weekend' offer on and the item was £25% cheaper than i could find it elsewhere, i though why not, i'm covered by my credit card if the worst happens I ordered the item (Sony Bluray player) on Sunday, got an immediate email confirming receipt of the order, then a further email on Monday saying the order was processed. On Tuesday i gave them a call (maybe my… Read Full Review

Should have minus ratings. Unusal thing happened with me like all the above. Waited 2 & half months for refund. Consumer Direct web pages re. Sale of Goods Act 1979 are excellent and I used one of their template letters and sent it registered post. Got refund back to credir card in 3 days… Read Full Review

Camera parcel delivery was minus essential battery...Took money immediately, so no time to cancel credit card payment...When complaining they provoke an argument so they can drop the phone on you...They blame everyone else, even you for the missing parts...They make false promises to stall for time,or even hoping you will go away with stress....I had to finally use the facility of Barclaycard to refund my losses...Real cowboys that should be shot off of their horses… Read Full Review

Do not buy from this company. Read the reviews. I ordered a TV online and paid by credit card. The money was taken immediately and the website promised delivery within 6 days. After hearing nothing I phoned up and was told it was out of stock and would be in the following week. Still nothing and after phoning was told it was discontinued but they would upgrade and send me a newer model for the same price. Still nothing after a month I tried phoning again and just kept getting a recorded message… Read Full Review

Firstly I wouldn't rate this company at all! But you have too!
Please do not use this company. I feel very naive, but trusted this company to deliver a good priced item on time. Although they deduct the money from your account immediately there is no sign of the item I purchased. I call the number on their website (just tried it again at 3:15pm) and its an automated message saying call back between the hours of 9:30am and 5:30pm. I'm still waiting to find out where my purchase is. If only I'd… Read Full Review

My only hope is that you are reading this before placing an order.If this is so then DON'T.
Placed order in September 09, item not delivered, emails ignored. Phoned up to be told "item due in next week". Two weeks later same story.This went on for 15 weeks! Cancelled order and told "refund in a few days". Two weeks later no refund and told "refund in a few days".After 2 weeks contacted Credit Card Company and 5 months after placing order now have my money back.
In 13 years of internet shopping… Read Full Review

Like many other customers on this forum, I have also had serious problems with dealing with these coyboys. I ordered a microwave which was out of stock (not showing as out of stock on website though) and was charged immediately. Having waited for 2 months for the product, I cancelled the order and requested a refund. Six weeks later I am still awaiting the refund and have been fobbed off with excuses about the finance department having system problems.

I would not touch this company with a barge pole. They took my money and then proceeded to make excuses as to why the goods had not been supplied.Even after they agreed to cancel my order, the money was never paid back to me. Never, never attempt to purchase goods from these people. Chances are you won't receive the goods and maybe, like me, not even get your money back.They are a complete and utter shower and they get no stars from me, for any heading. I give one star and then only because I… Read Full Review

Order placed 27.9.09 with 5 to 6 days delivery. Phoned premium rate number 5.10.09 only to be told not in stock and delivery would be 28.10.09. Cancelled order on 7.10.09 as TV was a present. Only recieved full re-payment 16.11.09 after much phoning and e-mailing. Do yourself a favour and avoid this company. Watch out for hefty delivery costs. I dealt with Service Manager. After many excuses he finally resolved matter… Read Full Review

As per the others on here - avoid.
This is because they claim to have products in stock but probably don't
and rely on getting it in stock once you've paid and ordered.
The process of getting the refund is the problem - seems like the number you ring don't deal with the refund and there's obviously a communication problem in getting it done.
Anyway - I persisted and once I'd got the e-mail address of a person rather than the ridiculous non-answering contact service via their website or the… Read Full Review

Purchased a hdd video recorder, money taken out of account immediately. When viewing order online status kept saying in progress. Rang up to be told out of stock for another week or so. I said I wanted to cancel the order which they said they would and I would recieve a refund in 4 working days. Like everybody else the money never appears. Everytime you ring up they say it should have gone througn and accounts will authorise it again.
In the hands of the Credit card company and I have suggested… Read Full Review

I had the worst experience of my life. They were nice while placing an order and delivered on time. The delivery man was a nightmare. One person was sent to deliver the american fridge freezer who could not even get it out of the truck and had attitude problem.
So friends be aware if you plan to buy anything from them. Their prices are not the cheapest if you include the price i had to pay others to get the fridge inside the house. They do not respond to written complain and there is no way to… Read Full Review

I used to take these kind of online reviews with a pinch of salt thinking they had been cooked up by rivals of the business reviewed. Boy have I learnt a lesson! Read and learn!
Paid online for a TV on 27 August. Money deducted immediately from account. Both the website and a phonecall (to a premium rate 0871 number) assured me the item was in stock. Cut a long story short, over the next fortnight loads of emails and phone calls and just constant excuses. I eventually ask for a refund and three… Read Full Review
