“The laptop that I ordered from SVC Direct arrived one...”

Written on: 25/09/2007 by deepakbs (1 review written)

The laptop that I ordered from SVC Direct arrived one week late.
I had asked for a VAT reclaim form, since I was leaving the UK. They promptly sent me the form.

I got a stamp on this form in the airport before leaving the UK, and sent the original form back to SVC for then to credit me with the VAT money. But SVC just refused to do it. I made several international phone calls, sent several emails, and every time they said they were doing it. Finally, after 2 - 3 months, they are inaccessible… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/07/2005 by chardUK (3 reviews written)

SVC Direct www.svcdirect.co.uk - When I returned a memory card ordered in error the refund was less 15% and less P&P. Both these deductions are against the Distance Selling Regulations in the UK. I had to go through Trading Standards to get my money back.

They have been breaching the regulations since at least the beginning of 2005 and I am still trying to get these unfair terms removed from their Terms and Conditions. You have been warned!… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/01/2005 by abba (1 review written)

Having found SVC Direct's was the best price for a Pioneer DVD Recorder, I ordered it on-line late at night: I had an acknowledgement by e-mail by 9am, a most courteous phone call to discuss delivery mid-morning, and it arrived by courier next day, and I live several hundred miles away, in Scotland. This is unbeatable service, and I recommend them unreservedly… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/01/2005 by hjkjj (1 review written)

I had been looking for an S7000 for some time before taking the plunge. I found this a pleasing experience from beginning to end. When they found a problem with my card they phoned me within 2 hours of ordering and sorted it out. They were very polite. The camera came the next day at 08:30 via their delivery. I would recommend SVC Direct to anybody. Better than some horror stories that I had read beforehand… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/11/2004 by Kevin12 (1 review written)

I attempted to purchase a Sony PCV V1 in Sept 04 and was told that it was 'lost' by couriers a week later. SVC offered to refund the money or provide a new model at the original cost within 2 weeks - which was an offer I could not refuse. 2.5 months later and after 100's of calls (to different sales people who did not want to be accountable), they retracted their offer and decided to source the original (out of date) model for me. If you expect integrity and honesty from your supplier, then… Read Full Review

“Regretfully, I cannot recommend SVCDIRECT at all. ”

Written on: 29/11/2004 by eastle (1 review written)

Regretfully, I cannot recommend SVCDIRECT at all.

I purchased a Canon DLSR which arrived without the software CD.

I contacted Canon, who told me their policy is to not send out CDs and to contact the vendor (SVCDIRECT).

SVCDIRECT have failed to reply to numerous emails plus written correspondence on this matter.

Based on their dismal customer support I would strongly advise shopping elsewhere.

Canons software policy is to not offer for download the original applications; updates only. You… Read Full Review

SVC don't answer e-mails, don't return calls and once they have your money they are simply not interested. I wouldn't buy a lollipop from this company. Fork out some extra cash and get your camera from a proper retailer… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/11/2004 by mobilecomm (1 review written)

Bought a Pioneer DVD recorder multi-region, from SVC Direct arrived next day and cheapest on the net. Unit was not multi-region despite saying this on the invoice and order. Nightmare trying to get through on the phone, but persist and I did get through. They picked the unit up within 2 hours by courier. They said the multi-region unit would be with me for an am delivery on the Monday morning, ok so I had to wait the whole weekend. By 11.30am on the Monday I started to get itchy feet and tried… Read Full Review

SVC Direct - We have been promised a plasma screen will be delivered and for a second day it hasn't arrived. We were told to wait until 6pm, we then discovered this is when SVC Direct closes....
The courier has no record. Will our TV ever arrive. Do not buy from this company they are not the cheapest and do not deliver when the say they will. SVC Direct has also vanished from Pricerunner… Read Full Review

The TV did arrive and eventually I did get through to someone helpful, maybe I was expecting too much?

Written on: 07/04/2004 by shoperholic (1 review written)

I bought the top-end Sony T1 digital camera from SVC, having read some good reviews about them.

The package I ordered arrived woefully incomplete. They told me on the phone they were sending replacements that also failed to arrive.

When I offered to drop by and pick up the missing part of the order, they told me they were out of stock!

Oh, and as others have reported, when things go wrong (surely a time when any service is put to the test), they do not respond to emails either!

Be warned… Read Full Review

“I recently bought a digital camera from...”

Written on: 29/10/2003 by cat1not2 (13 reviews written)

I recently bought a digital camera from svcdirect.co.uk after reviewing many stores and prices. They were very competitive if not quite the cheapest but they had received good reviews. I needed some detailed information about compatability and some advice on technical specs. I e-mailed them several times and amazingly I got replies within a very short time...I suppose I may have sounded a little pernickety and was probably considered a non-buyer but they were always helpful and addressed all my… Read Full Review
