Park Cameras

Long Established Photographic Retailer

I have bought from Park Cameras on several occasions over the past 10 years. They adhere to the highest standards for online retailing and are always reliable, with super fast deliveries, usually next day if you order early.

Cult Pens

Quick and Easy

Only ordered a few pen refills but they arrived quickly and I was kept informed throughout the order process. Reliable service that I would use again.

Menkind

Not for novices

No problems with Menkind at all who sent the Bluetooth Helicopter promptly. However, this helicopter is not built as well as some and is all plastic with no metal subframe like some of the better ones I have flown.

Controlling the machines with the iPad or iPhone is about 3 times harder using than a normal control module, so be prepared for a few crashes and plenty of practise.

This helicopter is expensive for what it is - maybe the fact that it has a blue-tooth module accounts for this, but even so, I might have expected a better flying model for the money.

Tesco

Consistently the Best

My wife and I shop for groceries on a regular basis with Tesco. Mistakes are rare and always rectified quickly. Drivers are very helpful and as my wife is disabled they always bring the good to the kitchen, rather than just inside the door. All the items have good lengthy code dates on them and they do not try and palm you off with short dated products like some stores we have tried.

We have given several grocery stores a fair trial and Tesco's service exceeds others by far. They always have the majority of items requested and any substitutes are intelligently selected, unlike some stores I could mention.

Compared to other top branded stores, they really care about their customers and it shows. We have also bought general goods from Tesco on line, and once again the service is prompt and flawless.

Wex Photographic

Excellent Service

As a professional photographer I have bought many high priced items from Warehouse Express. Delivery is always next working day. On the one occasion when a sealed box professional quality lens was found to be faulty, (images were not in focus properly), I sent them image samples and they arranged a pick up of the lens the next day. As I had by then sourced the lens elsewhere, £1,380 was refunded to my card within 2 days.

Their prices are competitive, and they have a fantastic range of stock including the more obscure requirements that a professional might want. They have always been helpful and courteous and I feel that if any genuine complaints are conducted in a similar manner, the buyer has absolutely nothing to fear. Highly recommended, you can buy with confidence.

Decuisine

Avoid like the Plague

This is a "take your money and run company." Actually the technique is to take your money and not supply the goods unless forced to do so by pending unwanted action, the most powerful of which is threat of prosecution for fraud.

Contact your bank or credit card company first, then write to the company threatening reports to police and trading standards unless goods are sent or money is refunded. If you don't get a response in 7 days, carry out your threats.

These companies work on the logic that if a customer is ignored long enough they will go away and not pursue a small amount. Please help to prove that this theory is unsound by reporting the matter to the police if necessary so that a case for fraud can be built.
