I have only bought from the shop, not mail order.

I have found the shop well stocked, prices good, in the main, and the service courteous and helpful.

I think you're both confusing Marine Megastore (the topic of this thread and based at Hamble le Rice) with Marine Superstore, the Port Solent chandlery.

Mixed bag of experiences - not as big or competitive as the Port Solent Operation, the store is OK. The Mail Order/Web 'shopfront' is huge but high proportion of products are sourced as a broker, so delivery times can vary - hence part orders arriving. Some of my orders have been cancelled through frustration, others have arrived quickly - issue is stock availability at point of order.

Worth supporting though.......

Well, seeing as the original poster registered, posted and hasn't been back since I think we can fairly safely say this was a smear attempt.

Well smear attempt or not, I feel i should update you all as i didn't know what to think this afternoon......

Got back home about half 5 ish and my house mate had collected the parcel from Fedex earlier in the day, could see instantly that it wouldn't have contained everything i ordered. Opened it all up, and i have 2 of the 3 things i ordered, but also the keen packer of the goods must have got quite caught up in the moment as he wrapped up his safety knife used for cutting boxes and tape too.

To summarise, i'm still not sure what to think, half the goods arrive after 6 days and the rest?....... who knows.

I'll let you know.....

Jimmy

marine megastore

I have used them a few times (8-10), delivery a little slow at times but prices are good and service is ok on the whole.

bear in mind the store in hamble is not the head office or central distribution centre, that is in london I think.

i am back lol

i ordered some bits for a car, i'm not a boat man, couldn't find many places that stocked what i wanted so tried marine megastore. After having a terrible time and being lied to/fobbed off and given excuses, i searched for boat forums and marine megastore and came here to see what others thought of the company. I may even send them some feedback back to them

i can't believe the grief i had. Got everything sorted now, but only after refusing to get off phone.
I certainly wouldn't use them again, the chap couldn't even read there own order form properly i (the customer) had to explain everything to them

Well I have used them 5-6 times and found them to be just a normal internet supply company...
good website, plenty of choice, good prices, good delivery, no problems at all.
