Been buying quite a lot of stuff from the the UK & US lately - thought I'd post about some good experiences. Normally we forget the good and only post about "moans", but these guys/companies have delivered above expectation.
1. Performance Product Technologies
I ordered a closed cooling system from them. Unfortunately, it got damaged by UPS on the way over. Normally this becomes a nightmare, but PPT dealt with it extremely promptly, efficiently and with no fuss. Guy I dealt with was Ricky Holba. 10/10.
2. Summit Racing (shipping) - I've tried lots of different shipping co's. Initially I steered away from using i-parcel
since google suggests they're rubbish. My experience is totally the opposite.
Fixed price vat, import duty and handling fees, and by far the cheapest overall shipping costs.
. I needed quite a few hose fittings, but get put off at the earls etc prices. These guys appear to be manufacturing their own stuff, have excellent stock, very quick delivery, excellent pricing and do black anodized (I dislike the red & blue stuff)
. Unlikely that too many people will be ordering stuff for a hilborn injection manifold - but as above, really excellent customer service. Turns out my manifold is a bit unusual so some items I needed had to be manufactured by hilborn, but their customer service & comms was spot on.
All in all, a few companies I would heartily recommend.
