Helpful Report
I ordered a bottle of graffiti remover. The product arrived promptly and was securely packed. However, the top had not been screwed on securely before despatch. As a result, some liquid had leaked out over the bottle and into the packaging. Better quality control needed!

Can’t comment yet as product hasn’t arrived 6 days after the order.
Helpful Report
Item turned after 10days not 2days, great product. Had to prompt them with ref notification of delivery. This was a hush email as it turned out they did not have in stock, they eventually got it to me. Why they just didn't say its not in stock, due in and there will be a delay I do not know. Goods are well priced but be willing to wait for item.
Helpful Report
Good priced items quality name brands. .. every item in stock once you make your order then you find out alot of your order is awaiting stock from suppliers. .. which to me is very misleading

I bought a tool from you to cut thru nails but it doesn’t seem to fit on my drill so I either purchased the wrong tool or it’s not any good
Helpful Report
Hi Lisa the product you ordered was a pack of Abranet Sanding discs for a sander - which sander do you have?
The online returns form did not tell me it had sent the form, so I ended up reporting the same thing multiple times. Staff took a while to get back to me with a decision and the email contact should have had more detail.

A large box and signatures really isn’t required for 3 pairs of gloves that would have fit in an envelope through a door.
