Really good service - have used them many times

I regularly buy gadgets and other tech from these guys - they do make mistakes but are usually quick to rectify the problems.

The Utility Warehouse

Shocking customer service, confusing tariffs/bills, weird reconciliation charges

Quite pointless having a review site if I cannot make a review - in a nutshell shocking company, confusing bills & crazy 'reconciliation' charges

Could this review be flagged as 'confirmed by purchaser' as I have given a bill clearly showing this.

Do not use this company - that's all I can say on the matter as my last review wasn't allowed for some reason only known to TrustPilot.

Virginmedia

Poor customer service - broadband speeds are good though

These guys could be so much better, they need to sort out their customer services however it is becoming a joke. Just hope you speak to someone in the UK, I have heard really bad conversations with some extremely rude people.

Broadband as everyone knows is rapid, yes you never get the full speed quoted but it is more than most will ever need, soon to be increased too.

FoneBank.com

Tablet S - Got a good price for something 3yrs old

I could have made another £1 or 2 using one of their competitors but now exactly they operate - FoneBank are one best mobile phone recyclers. Don't waste time trying to make a few more pounds going to a lesser known company, trust me you will regret it.

Tescodirect

Phone ordered - best price online

Always look for a voucher code - you can usually make another saving of £20+ or more just by spending a few seconds on sites like hotukdeals. Ordered phone - no a single problem was much cheaper than all the other sites by some distance.

Netflix

The best movie streaming service bar none

Having used all of the main streaming services I have to admit this is the only one I am still paying for - rarely have problems watching movies, their auto-resume means I can watch a program/film and start in the same place when I start watching on another device.

Would be nice if they could add more newer content - although I am sure i'd have to pay more then.

Amazon

Really quick dispatch - never have problems

I've used Amazon for every christmas for the past 5 years and I can say never have a single problem - they do what they say and their prices are easily better than most of their competitors. I've seen the documentary on their 'poor' working conditions - but once their Kiva automation bots take over that problem will be eradicated. Will use again for sure.

Thebodyshop

Item well packed - shame the prices only decent when on sale

The bodyshop has a number of very expensive items that I would only buy during the sale as they are easily overpriced.

Their items came quickly by courier and were well packed - even had a little gift message in there too for free which was a nice touch. Would use again - but during a sale :)

BuySpares.co.uk

Good service & communication

A little slow with dispatching items however they kept me in the loop throughout, will use them again as they seem the best place for 'hard to find' replacement items. I needed a obscure item for a blender and they had the one I needed. Their prices seemed pretty decent too - would recommend.

Glasses Direct

Great company

Never had a problem - delivery is quick, prices are much better value than the high street and their regular offers really make a difference - use them you won't be disappointed!
