Everything sent as expected .
CPC are the answer to many of my problems that I encounter in my working role as Facilities Manager. Wether we have a squeaky door, failed CCTV camera, or need components to repair an A/C fault, they have it, supply it and quickly too!
You deal very promptly with any order I have ever sent, and I speak highly to anyone of your shop.
The packaging of all goods sent is great, and prices very competitive, so I have no hesitation in ordering goods again
Very pleased. Order dealt with quickly and very pleased with the product. It is performing better than I had expected.
I ordered a number of items and they were all great prices (in some cases 50% cheaper than elsewhere) and they all arrived well packaged and as described.
Only negative is order tracking was a bit lacking. When I ordered the site said "next day delivery" but mine took 3 days. 3 days isn't long to wait, but my expectations had been set higher by the web site.
Also, one item was out of stock and went to back-order. No problem with that, but the email I was sent said it would be in stock next week. When I called up to switch the order to a different product I was told the original product would now take 3 weeks to come in to stock. I'm sure that was new information, but order tracking had not sent me an updated email, which I would have appreciated.
Finally, the replacement product I ordered over the phone turned up the very next day and that was great, but this order didn't show on my account on the web site, which seems odd.
But these are all minor niggles. I would happily use the company again and recommend them to friends. I really liked that they sent me a catalogue too. At over 3500 pages it must have cost them a fortune in postage (which they didn't charge me for) but I had a great time flicking through it, and I'm sure more orders will be the result!
Keep it up ! you're doing O.K.
I know that CPC does do next day delivery, but i have had a few times where it's not and the items are in stock. But on this occasion it was the next day via Royal Mail and i was happy with what i got, exactly as described on their website and with free delivery that was a bonus as well.
I have phoned CPC on a couple of occasions and have found them to be very helpful and courteous with the problem being sorted over the phone without fuss.
I would recommend CPC as i like their wide range they have in stock and their next day delivery is a life saver at times. Thanks CPC.
I go online at app. 17:00 on Thursday. I order only about 6 lines, all would fit in an A4 envelope, done.
I expect UPC at about 11:00 on Friday but they no show. So I look on web site for tracking info but order is still not completed. Bad. This probably means that the order will be sent by Royal Mail, and therefore at least another 2 day delay. Bad, bad.
Great range, very competitive and fast delivery, normally free. Cashback on Quidco as well.
Some products of unknown brands are very basic quality, but priced like that as well. Some product descriptions also poor.
I sometimes have difficulty searching for products on the web site 9 times out 10 I find that I require the exact product code and that word searching often produces nothing The descriptions are quite often wrong example cable clips and sat connectors ordered do not fit the cables ordered with them not a huge problem but annoying when you get to site with the kit and have to go to screw fix to buy the correct clips and terminations
As said before the cost of the gear is so competitive that I can live with this and will continue to use your services
I had a real problem last week I ordered 30 bs 1363 sockets in a rush and the picture showed dual sockets when they arrived all single I realised I had not read the very small printed description
I will eventually use them
If I what something to be delivered on time and not pay the earth, there is no better place to buy. I don't know anyone who uses CPC who is not impressed with there service..
But packing is a bit OTT.
Never-the-less, the Free Postage is a great incentive.
The constant stream of Posted Paper catalogues is a huge waste. Just use an update sheet. Some of these interim catalogurd are are so big and just repeat items that they go straight into the bin.
i am very pleased with all the items
All arrived as ordered. I was pleased to see the addition of extra packaging underneath the products. This is a welcome change to the packaging protocol.
Keep up the good work.
I always look forward to the arrival of the magazines, there are always things to tempt me !
I also always check out the bargain basement to we what spares are available.
That is what I expect and what I get everytime with CPC.
In all the years that I have dealt with the company I have never had cause to complain or to return any item.
My only wish is that you offer free delivery on telephone orders as I enjoy chatting with you very helpful and competent young ladies and would hate it if any of them lost their jobs because of internet usage.
Easy online purchase and will shop at Cpc again.
Their range of products is amazing plus unbelievable delivery times and now free delivery on all online orders makes them my fist port of call every time, and they even allow for our mistakes by exchanging the wrongly ordered goods.WOW !!
CPC simply seems to sell everything. Every gadget and gismo. Their P&P free run is marvellous I hope they keep it up.
I can always rely on CPC to provide me with quality equipment at a moment's notice, either by visiting their modern and well laid out Trade Counter shop, or by making use of their useful online ordering and next day delivery service.
They are a godsend to a company owner like myself that has need for equipment and components at a moments notice.
I am developing an application, around a Raspberry Pi, and I wanted some parts to assemble a hardware interface. I spent some time selecting appropriate parts from a fairly comprehensive product list and ordered them online. I made use of the shopping basket which kept track of the items in my basket, over a number of visits to the website. Once complete, ordering was straightforward and delivery prompt in suitable protective packaging.
We have been ordering from CPC for many years and they constantly deliver. Many of our projects have gone live because of the numerous "behind the scenes" items required - data & video cables, batteries, keyboards & mice etc. CPC delivery is very very reliable and we rely on them. On the odd occassion when we have had a problem, their Customer Care is second to none as they always ensure customer satisfaction - thats why we go back!
A little disappointed that one item wasn't in stock, but CPC informed me via email quickly that this was the case...item still hasn't arrived 3 weeks later though. The PVA adhesive had leaked on route meaning it was only half full on arrival-and the bag it came in was 'messy', but no further harm done. I decided not to contact CPC about this because i didn't want to have to wait in another day to swop items.
The delivery driver who usually delivers to me ( 'Peter' at UPS)is a smashing chap-always seems cheerful and helpful!
CPC are quite simply the BEST, good range on every product, good prices and most of it always in stock. Everything always arrive next day by UPS in perfect order and with never any damage..
I ONLY use someone else - if CPC don't stock the item I need...
LONG MAY This fantastic Company continue, I have dealt with its associated company Farnell since 1978 and they reflect the same dedicated service..
MANY THANKS !!!!!!!
the order was taken immediately, it was very easy to find what I was looking for on the on-line catalogue, the goods were despatched immediately and a couple of days later the post delivered my order, well wrapped and in excellent condition..I am now using the items ordered and they are performing superbely
Having placed my order via the internet I was expecting to wait for my 44 drawer cabinet to arrive in the next few days, I was really surprised when it turned up within 48 hours. Well packaged and no damage to be found, a really good service indeed. The product itself is exactly what I wanted and very robust in its construction, should I need another I know exactly where I will be getting it from, Farnell CPC.
ALWAYS CHECK HERE FIRST FOR GOOD PRICES AND AVAIALABILITY - EASY TO USE WEBSITE AND WHETHER ORDERING OVER THE PHONE OR DOING IT ON LINE IT IS EASY PEASY - ALMOST ALL THE TIME THE ORDER IS PLACED IT USUALLY ARRIVES NEXT DAY ( EVEN THOUGH STD DELIVERY IS TECHNICALLY THE DAY AFTER THAT ) - SO ALL IN ALL GREAT
I always enjoy good service from CPC, but a little more thought into packaging would make the experience better. They sometimes dispatch items in cartons far too big for the item within and then pack it full of air-filled padding which my council will not recycle.
I am liking the current FREE delivery offer, though!
UPDATE. My recent order arrived in a Jiffy Bag which was ideal for the goods within.
