Favoured UK suppliers?

I have heard enough bad stuff about craddocks from UK folks to not give them my business, but what other suppliers are favoured?

I don't recall hearing anything bad about bearmach and paddocks though. Who've you used and had good service from previously?

I have nothing but good things to say about Craddocks. Paddocks I have learned to call rather than place an internet order. If they have the item in stock and you call by 9:30 am EST, (2:30) GMT/UK time they will ship that same day. Last week I placed an order for a 200/300tdi starter on Tuesday and I had it by noon on Thursday. Total cost with shipping via UPS was $200.

What about lrseries.com? I haven't heard anything bad about them, but I haven't used them either. Anybody used them?

I have used both Paddocks and Craddocks successfully, although found doing it via email is very slow. Call if you are in a hurry.

I've dealt with Noel at Paddock a couple times and have been pleased with their customer service and shipping times - If you want his e-mail address lmk.

The only thing I bought from them I had delivered within the Uk. The transaction went smoothly enough via email.

Uk Suppliers

I have nothing but good things to say about both Paddock and LRSeries. I have used them both. Always professional and the shipping on small items is sometimes faster than from US outfits. Still struggling with a cost effective way to get larger/heavier items here.

Wow, looks like pretty good prices. I'm surprised I haven't come across them before. Too bad he doesn't have pics of most of the stuff. He had a great price on a Aircon Winch bumper that fits an X9...just what I need, but no pics. I guess I'll have to email him and see.

Thanks for the link!
