“Rip Off Merchants”

Written on: 27/05/2016 by sleeves (10 reviews written)

I have to agree with recent reviews about this company. Today I came across Gorilla Glue which is manufactured in America and is a class product.
I checked Screwfix for availability and price. £14..99 inc vat. for a 250ml bottle. For piece of mind decided to check EBay. To my surprise EBay companies are selling the exact product and size for £7.79.
I stopped shopping with Screwfix recently after I phoned them to ask if they would do a price comparison. I was in the market for a Evolution Rage 3 Double Bevel Saw. Amazon are asking £240.00_Screwfix want £320.00_I can buy this unit from a reputable company on EBay at the cost of £167.00. Why people shop with this company is beyond me. All they are doing is ripping the public off. I`m not surprised they can sponsor the English Nation Football Team. No more business from me.

If an item is cheaper elsewhere why not just buy from the cheaper company ?

Thats exactly what I did. The comment was to let others know its cheaper elsewhere. Before I purchase I search for the cheapest. After all, this is a review ceentre.

You queried my earlier comment that Screwfix were the cheapest place to buy around my area (which is true), but you are comparing with eBay and Amazon. Yes, most stuff is cheaper by on-line ordering and I do get a lot of stuff that way, especially with CPC. But I was comparing like-with-like, and if you are eg in the middle of a plumbing job and need more pipe, you cannot wait for an on-line order to arrive. There are also fraudsters on eBay and Amazon I've found, and returning wrong stuff they send you is not always easy or possible. OTOH Screwfix are happy to refund surplus/unwanted stuff even if correctly supplied, no questions.
