What a lie!

"Sorry, we were unable to deliver your parcel as there was no one present to sign for the delivery; we left calling card number 26037103"

I had been at home deliberately to receive the parcel during the time quoted by DPD. The fact of the matter is that no such calling card was left, and as such the driver was either at the wrong address or made no attempt to deliver at all. Completely wasted day as DPD customer services can only advise that the parcel may be delivered later today, but most likely tomorrow when I shall be out. No mention of the non-existent calling card. That's simply called lying in my book.

Reliable and Fast.

Great service from this little known company. Everything straightforward and fast reliable fedex shipping. All good, will be using again.



This company is to be avoided. I booked and paid for a collection and didn't receive any acknowledgement that I had done so. Being £20.00 out of pocket, I decided to phone them-no phone number. You have to raise a "support ticket" which is a new one on me. It's basically an email which leaves you at the mercy of when they decide to reply. Days of "support tickets" ensued before I finally threatened them with raising a PayPal dispute and claiming through visa chargeback. It was amazing, suddenly they were replying within seconds rather than days-very quick refund. If you are reading this and experiencing problems with them and you have used PayPal or a visa card just threaten them and watch them jump.

Music Matter

Great First Impressions.

Absolutely no problems.
Easy Website, Fast efficient service.
As it should be.

Quality, robust and Value.

I ordered this excellent mirror hanging bracket and it was with me within 24hrs. The bracket itself is a robust metal attachement that comes in two pieces and is very easy to install, even for a rank amateur like myself. It comes with all the necessary screws, instructions, and even a small spirit level type device to ensure straight hanging. It more than accomodates my large 115 x 70 150Ib mirror, and I am confident of its staying power.
A great product and really top-notch service. Thanks.
