Thankyou Gecko!

Just to let others know of my experience with Gecko. I sent my helmet to get a visor put on, but because it didnt have any drilling points marked on it, they replaced the old shell with a new one free of charge! Excellent service and communication. Sent the helmet tues morning, just got it back today,(thurs) Highly recomended!

So, your old helmet now has a new shell and a new visor.

Reminds me of a story about a broom.



Seriously, Gecko were very helpful to me recently when I refurbished the Ex-RNLI helmets I bought.

The MD of a factory was having an economy drive and decided to reward old Stan to encourage the other employees to look after their equipment like Stan did.

The whole staff was gathered around as the MD explained to everyone that Stan had had the same broom for twenty years and he was proud of him.

After the presentation of a bottle of wine Stan was given the chance to say a few words.

"Well, this is all well and good, I thank you kindly, my old broom and me have been through a lot together. I think at last count its had 8 new handles and 12 new heads"

Wasn't worth waiting for, was it?
