I also dont like the fact that their website/catalogue contains no prices!

Their web site has prices, the old one with PDF files had a PDF price list with all the part numbers separate from the exploded diagram PDFs. They now have exploded diagrams where you point to the part number, click an option and it shows you the price.



Sowee Opps
Your are right my other half has since found the price list on the site :D

Incidentally i returned to somerford today,he must of been having a bad day that day because the same guy was soo pleasant and helpful today.

i feel a little guilty slating them but they do say first impressions count and i guess my first impression did:(
They have excelled today though maybe its because we turned up in boris today whereas last time we were enquiring about prices because we were thinking of getting a mini last time we were there?

Anyways a bigg thumbs up to sommerford mini now;)

How you placed order : Internet, phone
Rating: :)
Testimony: Horrible communications, send emails get no reply or recipt of email. Ring up and they are not intrested in taking the order via phone so have to email or fax to them. Placed the order last wed, took them till wed to ask for my card number and delivery address... i changed the delivery add as they wanted to send next day so said id call back with card no and delivery add. Returned the call in 30 mins and updated the details. Rang today and they havent changed the order status from awaiting phone call with card number so my order had been sat there. Now going to be monday :D

Wouldnt use again or recomend to anyone.

Rating: >:D >:sneaky:
Testimony: I ordered some parts from them last summer, all of which arrived great, and everything that was ordered arrived. 6 months later I randomly get a package of parts I didnt order, all charged to my debit card. I told them I didn't order it, they claim I did. It's my word against theres. Fair enough, I send the stuff back for a refund. That was about 3 months ago now. No refund, I get fobbed off on the phone, and no emails replied too. Not happy!
