“Really good Service”

Written on: 29/06/2011 by caski3 (1 review written)

Loath to spend money on a Sat Nav we would only use once, I thought there maybe a hire service we could use. I Googled Sat Nav hire and found this company. We needed to struggle from Vancouver International airport to Chilliwack among miles for roadworks and diversions. Avis wanted to charge $19 a day which I felt we could purchase one at this rate. Cheap Sat Nav hire is anything but cheap. Should be called supreme Satnav hire. Service was brilliant the Tom Tom worked perfectly and got… Read Full Review

“GPS SatNav Review”

Written on: 27/06/2011 by m1sere (1 review written)

I was going to the UK for 3 weeks holidays and I wanted a good Sat Nav. I didn't want to pay around 70 quid ($110 Aus) for the relevant maps for my Tom Tom Go. The rental car companys wanted anywhere from 6 to 14 quid per day (capped at 140 pounds max). This company offered a cheap and reliable alternative for about $2 per day. I got a Tomtom Start unit, which was adequate, and had all the speed radar camera locations pre-loaded. There are thousands of these all over the UK waiting for you… Read Full Review

Hi,

I work for cheapsatnavhire.co.uk and dealt with this customer on thsi particular issue. He had used our company continuously for several years due to the fact he was so happy with the service.

On this occasion he had gone to order a particular model sat nav which we had just decided to stop providing so had removed it from the one of the list of products on our website but it was still available as selectable from our list of products. In the short term we had increased the price to an extortionate price (all other sat navs were still at same low price) to make sure no one would order this model.

The customer got a quote for this model and saw how high it was and automatically assumed that we had increased the prices and decided to complain to us without even giving us chance to explain. As this review is dated the same date he complained to us I expect he wrote this review before we had even had chance to reply to him!

We did email him back and explain the situation but he had already made his mind up by then. Some people prefer to think the worst rather than assume there is a reason or it is a mistake.

Obviously innocent until proven guilty wasn't the case with this person.

“I have hired a TomTom 1 unit from this company for 2...”

Written on: 29/10/2009

I have hired a TomTom 1 unit from this company for 2 weeks holiday in France and Spain.
Booking was easy and efficient, delivery very quick.
But not only did the unit repeatedly send us the wrong way, it also lost its position more and more as the days went by , especially when we needed it most, which is when exiting motorways. The journey back from northern Spain to London saw us relying only on our maps as the unit never found its position for more than a few minutes at a time, although we… Read Full Review

We hired the sat nav for use in Canada & the USA from cheap sat nav hire. Even though it lost signal on a number of occasions we couldn`t have done without it. The company delivered on time. No other problems, so overall very happy with the service & we would have no hesitation in using Cheapsatnav again in the future… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/08/2009

I would have been very stressed on holiday without this sat nav from cheap sat nav hire. As I couldn't afford to purchase one right before my holiday this hire service was ideal; arrived on time, packaged well, good instructions for return, worked perfectly. Unbelievable value for money, great equipment and service. Very pleased! A great way of avoiding an expensive purchase if you only need it for a one off purpose. Also a great way of testing out an item before you buy it (I will be… Read Full Review

Even though the sat nav arrived on time when i used it in portugal it ran out of charge and the charger was not working. Therefore had to guess my way to my villa and not able to use on return journey.
When told Cheap Sat Nav Hire they stated that it was working perfectly and i must have a dodgy car lighter.This was not the case and it was a complete waste of money. Will use different company next time!… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/07/2009

Excellent timing of delivery of satnav as agreed. Prompt reply to any inquiry or questions, before and after the hire period. The satnav worked in USA and Canada very well as promised. I would recommend all 'driving' tourist planning to travel to North America to seriously consider Hiring their satnav from the UK because the rental charge over there is a lot more. Very good value and good customer service from the cheapsatnavhire.co.uk… Read Full Review

“I have used the Cheap Sat Nav hire on three occasions...”

Written on: 31/07/2009

I have used the Cheap Sat Nav hire on three occasions now and each time it has been delievered without incident and has been easy to use and undoubtedly made my holidays in the UK hassle free. Only one criticism would be that it doesn't always seem to be updated and there are some roads I drove on which it didn't know existed. I don't know how often they get updated and this might be a consideration.

Written on: 31/07/2009

Cheap Sat Nav Hire is a very good service - I hired for a weekend only and there was no extra charge for ensuring that the equipment arrived on a Saturday morning. Everything worked perfectly and the instructions were very clear.

Be careful when ripping open the box though - you have to use the same one to return it!

Don't forget to add the price of special delivery return postage (about £6) to the quoted price - some other companies include a postage paid envelope. However still good… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/07/2009

Cheap Sat Nav Hire is a great service. Sat nav actually arrived earlier than expected. Very easy to set up and use. Price very reasonable.

Cons: Need to pay for postage to return sat nav (and the cost of this) isn't immediately obvious on website. (This is no different from competitors, but it would be useful to be up front about it)… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/07/2009 by jnrmotley (1 review written)

The Sat Nav arrived in plenty of time, nicely boxed with very clear instructions. Returning it was also easy.

We used the Cheap Sat Nav Hire service when traveling around the USA as it worked out far cheaper than the $10 per day that the car rental firm would charge.

The customer service was fantastic and the Sat Nav was all setup ready to go.

Completely stress-free and would highly recommend!… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/07/2009

Delivered at stated time. Simple instructions and easy to return....and loads cheaper than some offered through travel companies.
The SatNav was fine but the roads are different around Barcelona. Quick lane changes make you curse the SatNav when in fact it is only keeping up with the roads. I would advise caution checking the names of places. As the anglified ones are not always recognised. e.g. People visit Monserrat but the SatNav need Monistrol de Monserrat. However give the correct details… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/07/2009

Arrived exactly when due, worked perfectly in US, altho' it did take a good 6 mins to find satellites in California - just enough time for me to think it was faulty. Lesson learned... be patient when first using it abroad!

I liked that I could hire same model I use here, so I knew what I was looking at on strange roads. No other company could even match the price I hired it for. Would use Cheap Satnav Hire again without checking out competitors, because the service was great and I know it… Read Full Review
