Marine Orders

Just thought I would share this with you all as I always appreciate a company who provides good service. I ordered my new hand-held VHF Icom IC-M21 on Saturday evening online from Cactusnav(minus the VAT of course,nyah, nyah!). This was delivered to my front door this morning in Jersey - I am impressed.

I know that Manos, you missed the point. Some companies debit your card and take forever posting your goods. I was merely highlighting the fact that this company was extremely efficient, and I always appreciate that.

Aye, a lot of companies take forever to get the stuff out of their warehouse, but tend to be quick on getting the payment sorted. Ordering on saturday and getting it by tuesday, especially to the channel islands, is certainly decent service.

I might even use them to get myself a VHF when the time comes, so cheers for that Charles.

Matt

Charles, How come no VAT, was it because of export or that you live in Jersey (where petrol is nearly free) and we could all afford to run twin 250 mariners......

When do you get the Rib back???

Hiya Tim... anything mailed to the Channel Islands is regarded as an export from the UK. The Channel Islands are a VAT free area, so as long as a company can prove they have sent it here, VAT is not applicable the same applies to fuel, the duty is less than half the UK's prices, saying that, I will investigate putting 2 x 200hp Yamaha 4 strokes on the back of my rib in the not too distant future.
I am collecting my rib from Lymington some time next week. I am hoping for a reasonable weather window as this is unfinished business!!

Manos, no offence taken whatsoever

Charles,
Didn't you originally order this from MarineForce? What happened - I thought that they promised delivery in spite of going into administration?

You are correct Richard. I have heard or seen nothing, so ordered it from Catusnav.

More praise for good service

I ordered a tarp through Towsure (www.towsure.co.uk)'s online shop as a stop gap until I can get a proper cover made up. Ordered Tuesday and its just arrived today!

Maybe we need a RIB.NET good service award?!
