My partner and I have used the services of e-tyres on several occassions now and will continue doing so due to their range of products, competitive prices and friendly, efficient service.
That said, there have been minor issues in the past with regards to lack of response from customer services, however, e-tyres have been very quick to make things right in these circumstances.
One area I would like to see introduced is a customer loyalty scheme. I do know that e-tyres fitters pass on a leaflet for 10% discount from time-to-time, but I've never known how to use it as there is never a place to put the code online.
We had already decided to replace the flooring throughout our new home when we purchased as it was a mix of colours and textures, some of which was 11 years old and threadbare in places.
Although my partner and I are thrifty, upcycling and doing work ourselves, we would never recommend scrimping on carpet and underlay as it is not something one would like to be replacing on a regular basis.
We read reviews of various underlays and decided to go with the 'Cirrus' by Cloud 9. When we spoke to the store that was supplying our carpet, they told us they could supply Cloud 9...great, we thought, until they told us the price was £10 sqm!
We knew Carpet Underlay Shop was able to supply it in complete rolls and cut lengths which worked out to under £3 sqm, a rather LARGE saving I'm sure you'll agree. They even had a promotion running which included a small pack of Gripperods...fantastic as we found the rear of the lounge was missing them for some reason.
The whole process from ordering to delivery was smooth and we would certainly do custom with Carpet Underlay Shop again as and when we require. We've already recommended them to family and friends, and we highly recommend them to the public as well! :)
I've been using American Sweets (aka the Stateside Candy Co.) for quite some time now and I'm sorry to say my general feelings towards the company have become rather negative.
The major issue I have with the company is that almost every time I place an order I find that when I open my parcel there are multiple items missing as they, according to the company, have become out-of-stock (or in some circumstances were found broken in the warehouse) since placing the order. They seriously need to look in to how they can improve their ordering system as it's quite disgusting paying £4.50 for delivery of a parcel with at least 25% of it's expected contents missing.
Next in line is that the price of clearance items can drop quite sudden and dramatically, and I have contacted them about this before after I placed an order only to find that three items had been reduced in price by 50% overnight. Their response was simply "your parcel has been dispatched and therefore we can amend any prices".
Finally their customer service skills are lacking somewhat. I've contacted them several times over the year and the tone of the e-mails (usually responded to by Emma Baker) are rather abrupt, that is if they're not ignored completely.
From reading the reviews of this company by other customers, it seems that all have complaints of a similar nature, and I would highly advise the Director to take these issues onboard if they wish to keep customers.
Before I finish, I just remembered that on my last order which had items 'out-of-stock', the items were refunded (as I requested) but the refund was issued by cash enclosed inside an envelope - which I think speaks volumes about their professionalism, or lack of.
I came across the evaQ8 website whilst looking for 'Hot Cans'. I must say I'm suitably impressed by their range and highly competitive prices (they were at least £2 cheaper), not to mention their delivery prices were reasonable too and weren't inflated to recoupe any difference in product prices. At the time they were offering free delivery and their customer services were second-to-none when I couldn't get the code to work. I would highly recommend taking a look at this company!
I heard about Cybercandy when they existed as a single store in Convent Garden, and after reviewing their website I was desperate to find them. So, one miserably wet day, my partner and I popped in to London to pay them a visit and we were so thankful that we did!
They stock a vast range of products from different countries, which on one hand means there is always something new to try, but on the other hand does mean that sometimes your favourite item may be out of stock whilst they have a switch around.
Their prices are competitive compared to other importers, and yes you probably are thinking "£6+ for a box of cereal", but what you've got to remember is that a) you can't get it in the supermarket, and b) it would cost you a lot more to pop to the USA to get it yourself.
Cybercandy has since expanded and now has several stores plus a revamped website which is a lot better than it's previous. I do find it frustrating when they are out of stock of certain products for what seems like months on end, and perhaps it would be nice to see a loyalty scheme in place, but other than that they are a great company so check them out!
YouTube offers a wealth video clips that range from informative, funny, helpful, all the way to down-right weird!
I personally love the informative side of YouTube. If there's anything you've ever wanted to know more about out, or how to do, you can find it here. For example, we're currently renovating our home and found multiple videos which explained how to plaster-skim walls, which appeared simplier in video that it read in text.
My partner and I booked a DIY holiday for May this year, and after much Internet trawling we booked the flights and car hire via eBookers despite reading mixed reviews.
Everything went well at first until we received our itinerary via e-mail. Upon inspection we noticed that the 'special meal' that had been ordered for one of our travellers had been assigned to another traveller. This, we thought, would be no problem to amend, and with the details provided by eBookers we should be able to login to our flight booking through the airlines website and make the changes there.
We were able to login to the airlines website, but soon realised that the 'special meal' was not the only error. They, eBookers, had jumbled up the passport details for each traveller and so we had to go through and amend all the details.
We thought that was the end of this, however, soon after we received an e-mail from eBookers stating that we needed to provide them with passport details. We responded to their e-mail stating that this had been done following the booking and that we have had to also amend them via the airlines website. eBookers responded stating that we MUST give the details as per their policy, of which we did, but...a month later after a routine check or the airlines website, we found that eBookers had jumbled the passports details AND 'special meal' again!
This happend three times before we travelled, and in addition to this, the airlines scheduled departure times changed and eBookers failed to update us with this information. It was only due to checking with the airline that we were informed of these changes.
The hassle that eBookers caused was certainly not worth the £20 per passenger that we saved. Therefore we can honestly say that we will not be using eBookers in the near future, sorry.
I have a love/hate relationship with 7dayshop. There are definately some bargains to be had, however, I have found that lately there has been quite a lot of 'trash' being sold or items are out-of-stock pending a delivery.
That said, I have so far never experienced a problem with deliveries being late, and those that have been pre-ordered are despatched as soon as 7dayshop receive stock.
There is nothing more to say other than I love Google. It has remained my preferred search engine (and default homepage) since I first discovered it.
The reason why I love Google is because of its minamilistic homepage and the innovative use of the 'Google' logo at times, speed of search results, and integration with various applications I use.
I have been a customer of Tesco Mobile for almost a year now. I originally ported across from my previous network provider (O2) as I wanted to upgrade my mobile to an iPhone 4G, of which Tesco Mobile worked out as the cheapest option.
Apart from the benefit of earning Tesco Clubcard points, the tariff options offered were also very competitive, if not a bit better than some of it's rivals, due to a minimum of 12 months contract instead of 24 months.
The network itself is relatively steady although it does have the occasional wobble at times, but because Tesco Mobile 'piggy-backs' the O2 network and I was previously an O2 customer, I'm used to this.
I would certainly recommend that people look at Tesco Mobile if they are intending to switch networks, but I cannot say that I will remain with them if a better offer arises in the future.
eBay is a fantastic way of selling your unwanted items, and has a treasure trove of items that you may just want to spend your new income on.
The process is easy and there are numerous ways of which you can send/receive payments for items (the most common being PayPal).
eBay, of course, do request a percentage of your items revenue for using their services and there are add-ons to enchance your listings at an additional charge. Having recently sold items on eBay (after a few years abscence) I must comment that the charges seems to have been increased significantly (around 10% of final auction price) and this did come as a bit of a shock.
I've collected a fair amount of ex-contract mobiles over the years, and having seen the catchy Mazuma Mobile advertistment on TV I thought I'd give the service a try.
I must comment on how extremely easy the whole process was from start to finish, and how Mazuma Mobile send you regular e-mail updates as to where you order currently stands.
I would definately use their services again.
