A recent order of mine took a little longer than expected/previously experienced.

 

I dont worry any more.

 

They always come good.

I live in Italy.... Minispares orders are always here within a week of them actually shipping out. 

Now I have noticed that it takes a few days of processing in house before they will actually get to shipping, but I do feel they are reliable. 

 

MiniSport on the other hand, was missing a part of my order and made no attempt to contact me or let me know my order was on hold. I had to chase them down to get updates, and they were a bit cheeky with me on the phone. in the end, I did get my order though, and in a timely manner after it actually shipped. 

 

P&L minis has also shipped to me... quietly and quickly. No issues. 

 

Anyone else I should try?

Somerfords.  They have different parts, some NLA on Minispares and service is always quick.

I'm in Dublin. I've never had a problem with the delivery from Minispares or Minisport prior to Brexit. Now post Brexit things are taking a little longer but not much. As soon as the parcel arrives in this country it is processed very quickly. This is assuming that DPD/FedEx or UPS is involved. The only times that there have been delays were when Royal Mail have been involved. They seem to have a serious problem. In two cases deliveries have simply disappeared. In my opinion it's not fair to blame the suppliers.
