Ok let's give them another go.

After lots of recommendations I'm going to given them another go. The first time out it did not go too well. Two failed collections, it got there in the end.

So I appreciate a lot on here like them due to the owner being ex Ribnet. Let's see what happens this time around.

I'm about to book a collection from Cornwall, heading to Oban. Not an easy one that's for sure. They advise a 2 day collection, 2/3 day delivery. They are only 5 cheaper than my usual agent but I'd like to see if they can become a regular agent for me. Well, It would be rude not too

I'll update with my experience. I hope it's good. I'm sure it will be. I cannot be that unlucky can I ?

I used them a while ago and had to wait a very long time for the pallet to get collected, which was a bit of nightmare when i paid for 48hr delivery. Have not tried them since.

That's my concern as I cannot be waiting in 2/3 days for them. It's not like perhaps yourself where their is always somebody at the workshop to make it available for them.

Let's wait and see what happens this time. If they meet their own timescales I'll be happy. If not it's the last time I can use them.

Happy bunny

Pallet arrived yesterday both on time and in safe order. Customer is delighted and I have to say I'm pleased this time around the delivery went without a hitch.

My next delivery will be with them. If that goes well i shall become a regular customer.

That's ok

I've since booked 4 deliveries but all have been with my usual agent simply because they were cheaper!!
