"Still awaiting my product I ordered due to a paper mix up delaying the delivery date from ‘next day’ to having to wait 6 days. That’s if it is delivered when customer services said it will be. Very unhappy as this has caused a huge delay in the job I am doing as nothing more can be done until product arrives. I wish I would have paid slightly more for the product else where and had it delivered on time. Addition: Product arrived 6 days after ordering. Only 2 of the 3 boxes were delivered. Dilivery drives didn’t mention that a box had been damaged and therefore could not be delivered. Spoke to customer services who assured me that new product would be sent the next working day. This delivery has been sent to my home address NOT the address where I instructed delivery!! Therefore the product I need today can’t be used and has delayed this job further. First and last time I every use this company and would not recommend to anyone."

"At the moment we can only comment on the service received from Univar not the Dowsil product. This is the first time we've ordered from Univar. Ordering the product was simple and the pricing was deemed very good. Delivery was by DHL who gave us a time window for delivery and then didn't turn up until the following day. This of course is absolutely no fault of Univar. On arrival the product was the correct item and extremely well packed. Well done, and thanks. First class service."
