Wex Photographic

Exceedingly Good Help and Service

IN the absence of any good high street photography shops near me, and not sure what I needed to buy, I phoned Wex for advice before placing my order. Their patience and knowledge was excellent. They recommended two separate numbers for me to call to clarify what I needed to buy, not pushing for a sale at any time. Naturally I placed my order once I'd investigated and finalised what I needed.

I'd heartily recommend Wex to any other photographer, without a second thought.

And I love my new flash gun.

Bike Swanky

An innovative shiny bike-buying idea, delivered well by a friendly company.

I became aware of the possibility of leasing a bike almost by accident and I'm very happy that I did. Paul and BikeSwanky (previously the Bike Leasing Company) made the process very easy and I took delivery of £2,600 worth of bike which was set up for me at my home with the minimum of fuss. Since then I've had 18 months of shiny new bike-ness with no fuss, at completely affordable rates. In a few more months I will either settle up and keep the bike, or hand it back and order another brand new steed... the best bit being that if I do get a new one, I'll have paid much less than the RRP on the bike I've been hooning around the Pennines on for 2 years.
What's the catch? Well, BikeSwanky have to find a buyer for my current bike but it's a beauty so I'm sure they'll be ok. As far as I'm concerned, there's absolutely no catch at all. A great bike, for less than RRP over two years - a winning idea.
Totally recommended.

Superstarcomponents

A fraction of the price, but all the quality, top cycle components delivered direct

I use Superstar for my Mountain Bike consumables and bling and can't fault them.

For brake pads, for example, they source pads from major manufacturers and sell them for around half price of the major brands (i.e. the people whose name is on your brakes). My bike stops. End of.

I've also had lockon grips with fancy colours and they look ace. My son's bike is getting bling stem and quick release collars to make it look suitable for a teen about town - all at brilliant costs, delivered quickly.

Oh, and FREE HARIBO! What can possibly go wrong?

Vidahost

Cheap, Reliable and Up All The Time, like a promise from a bad spam email!

I use Vidahost for my http://mountainbikingresources.com website and I've had absolutely no problems with them - quite the opposite.

With wizards for setup on most popular website platforms (like wordpress and so on), getting your site live from scratch is easy. The cost is very competitive and I've had absolutely no issues with site uptime.

When I've needed help, it's been available via forums and/or email quickly and easily.

Very, very good. I've recommended them to one good friend so far and I've no qualms about doing so again.

Vodafone

No downtime, no problems

Apart from my company not being able to enable internaltional calls (I think they're just too tight), I'm very happy with Vodafone. My calls work and hardly ever get dropped; my emails are received; my data gets through.
What's to complain about?

dotMailer

Simple, Effective... and helpful when you get stuck!

I've used other mailing platforms (iContact, Mailchimp...) and whilst they're all good, Dotmailer really shine with the support they give. Our Account Manager is ace and the on-screen chat window has saved me many a wasted hour.
I send out mailers in my day job, contacting corporate buyers with messages which have be right, look right and have the right deliverability. Dotmailer helps me to do this and lets me see how things have gone.
It's an excellent tool.
