Outstanding customer service

Delightful dealer who sent a lens hood within 8 days of ordering

. Unfortunately it was the wrong size even though the sealed

pack was labelled as per my order . An immediate refund was

provided at their suggestion within a day and an apology for

inconvenience despite the problem being undetectable at

despatch . Definitely one to recommend and I will buy from them



Tried to stop many times before

Excellent products and value for money . Stopping smoking for a year has done a lot for me and this company delivers fast and efficiently , I would recommend it to anyone thinking about losing the dangers of the habit . Generous discount codes and a decent range , better than the NHS .


Undercuts competition but not in quality

Ordered Truly madly deeply bouquet for surprise birthday gift , it arrived bang on time with sms confirmation . Packed with flower food and clear instructions it has lasted three weeks and was much appreciated .
Excellent service even down to a personalised message note , recommended


Great if you like grovelling meaningless apologies

Totally ineffective home delivery and customer "service " . Took my order online , didn't deliver or contact , 5 lengthy calls to South Africa later Asda still hold my now cancelled order on my cancelled but still active account as "delivered" and calling the store ended up back in South Africa .

Tip : Notify your card issuer should you share my misfortune , with their track record Asda might just attempt to extract a fraudulent payment


Wonders never cease again

Sympathies to all those suffering bad service from this outfit I stopped buying from any company using HDNL or their other reincarnations after similar horror stories . Found out by accident that Yodel were the company who now use a self-employed courier who has delivered three times spot-on time and quality to a difficult address in Cheshire .Still not impressed by their on-line tracking service but credit where its due .

Fifteen months on , another delivery to a difficult address by a courteous and professional driver after not one , not two but three tracking updates . Still can't touch DPD with their one hour slot and Yodels voice recognition of tracking numbers is terrible but for me much improved . Recommended .


Very big improvement

Had serious problems with deliveries in the past which spoiled good range and decent prices . The last three deliveries have been spot-on , maybe we're just lucky but credit where its due they seem to be trying harder

Lies and deceit

First and last purchase last week . Promotional discount promised on telephone not given , hidden surchage for using Paypal , failed delivery charged for because contact details were wrong and driver ' couldn't find address ' , no reply to 5 messages and over an hour on a premium phoneline because my account was mysteriously blocked .

Not what they seem , still no washing machine and refused delivery until I paid extra charge even though refund of previous overcharge cannot be processed until next week .

Watch this space , will probably get a platitude from Customer Experience in response which is more than I got .

Overall the worst buying experience of my life , six months on no reply to complaint letters , why waste any more time on them ? Beware , they may dish out platitudes and half-truths in response here but will not follow up promises

Hi Dunfallinover,

I am sorry to hear about your experience.

It appears we have managed to track your order (from an email sent to myself over the bank holiday weekend). It has been escalated to the appropriate managers and we will be in touch to help resolve the issues.

Many thanks, Sarah Lawson
Customer Experience Manager, Appliances Direct.


Excellent value for money

Never had any problems , watch out for " free delivery " costs when buying .

Very informative website with customer opinions and tips alongside products , worth checking for electronics goods with bewildering specifications .Very fast delivery

Outstanding customer service

Not the cheapest for many things but easy to use and no problems with refund on 2 occasions in 7 years .

Very nice people to deal with , goods always arrive quickly and well packed .


Still first choice for buying

Used ebay as a buyer for 7 years with the confidence that Paypal does give some protection from scammers

Recently had to contact CS five times to convince them that cancelling a purchase from a dodgy seller was their responsibility not mine , eventually got the result needed by quoting the distress their actions caused .


Local shop , pleasant staff , good service

Had several trips with Thomas Cook who offer good prices and nice online support , resort reps seem worse than average but don't expect too much for the prices paid .

Thought I'd mention they recently beat Kuoni on price for a trip and couldn't have been more helpful and knowledgeable


Reliable if not always cheapest

Like the reserve and collect service to save telephoning around , Argos Clearance site is great for discontinued or refurb bargains . Did'nt like their complex way of offering discount vouchers .


They keep trying

Had 2 contracts for 5 years now , still the cheapest with good coverage in my area and excellent 3G data network . Conversations with Customer Service always polite and courteous , no reason to change


Sneaky tactics

Like so many others , I received my goods after 6 weeks ( despatch note was dated one month earlier ) with insufficient postage . Caused inconvenience and financial loss , methinks they wait until lasty minute knowing Paypal aren't interested in postal surcharges
