Excellent selection of clothing, but what really impressed me was how my order was packaged. I've ordered online from certain major department stores in the past to find my item arriving in a poly bag inside a courier mailing bag. Not with this company! My top arrived wrapped in tissue paper inside a large strong cardboard box, beautifully folded with tissue paper placed inbetween the folds. The top was perfect, and as expected.
I was a customer of this company through Vodafone, as Vodafone use them for their buyback scheme. I was offered £73 for my Blackberry Bold 9900 on upgrading my handset, packaged it all up extra carefully using the original box and sent it off Special Delivery. Having done this, I started to see the negative reviews of this company online and really started to panic! Review sites such as this are excellent, but it is such a shame that people are more inclined to post about negative experiences, rather than positive ones they have had in dealing with a company. After a day of completely unnecessay worrying, I received confirmation my phone had been tested and that it qualified for the full payment of £73 which will be credited to my Vodafone account. I would certainly use this company again!
I have (or had until this week) a thetrainline.com account, which I had yet to use to purchase tickets. The other day, I received a booking confirmation e-mail for travel from Sheffield to London St Pancras I had never made. I did not recognise the last four digits of the card details used in the booking, and was referred to as "Miss", rather than "Mr". I called thetrainline.com on the 26th June (at 10p per minute), to discover that a telephone agent at thetrainline.com had incorrectly associated another person's booking with my thetrainline.com profile, and as such I was receiving the e-mails for their booking! I was assured this would be taken care of, and would not happen again. Then, 3 days later, I receive two more e-mails! This time a refund confirmation for the original booking, and a confirmation for a replacement booking! Again, nothing to do with me, and looking at the booking references/travel details provided in the e-mail, it was for the same person as the first e-mail I received in error! And again, I had to pay 10P A MINUTE OF MY MONEY FROM A MOBILE TO SORT OUT SOMEBODY ELSE'S BOOKING!!!! To ensure this does not happen again, I have cancelled my account. A complete load of jokers - how on earth a person can make bookings, and have them end up in another person's account is beyond me. I do not want the risk of this happening to me, hence my cancellation of account. Granted, this mix up may have happened if the customer who made the bookings supplied their e-mail address incorrectly and inadvertently supplied what was mine, but there should be checks in place to ensure this cannot happen! All the operator had to do was check the address on the account. I will never deal with this company, and will warn all my friends and family.
(30/06/13 Just to update this review, someone from thetrainline .com based in what I assume to be their Edinburgh office has contacted me using another review site I posted this review on. They actually seem to want to get to the bottom of this issue and find out what actually happened, why their call centre which I assume to be based overseas from experience of dealing with them cannot offer this same level of customer service I do not know)

Very impressed - Fair price for phone, easy process (no waiting in a shop for someone to give you a price, test your phone, then say "oooh, we don't have any cash today, can we give you a store voucher?" - you can probably guess which high street chain I'm talking about), and my cheque was even sent to me first class! Only negative comment would be amount of time it takes when you send your phone in by freepost, though I expect this is down to Royal Mail. Will def. use again.
Everything I ordered was available for immediate despatch, and arrived quickly. What I particuarly liked, was that the posters were sent in a tube thin enough to go through my letterbox! Most of the time I order posters for delivery by mail, I end up having to go the the delivery office to collect them as the tube is too big for my letterbox. Posters were all excellent quality in terms of printing and finish.
