K4+ Sales

Just an announcement on K4+ equipement sales.

I have taken the website down - but all is still trading as normal. In the meantime the K4+ address will get forwarded onto my design address - which is the main business anyway. A new website will be launched early in the New Year - with many more products and information.

Will be quite a few changes and also going to have to be a lot tougher with payments. The majority of peolpe are a pleasure to deal with and I thankyou - but a few ruin for everyone and some really bad payers. Some pretty unexpected ones as well!!!

Anyway - if anyone is after any products that we maybe able to help with - please contact me and I'm sure we will be able to help. As normal most products in stock.

Adam

Payment

Yep I have had a load of those as well.
Can't believe how many people ask me for custom stuff on a short lead time (like 3 days) and then can't pay when they pick them up.
Or it takes 3 months to get payment out of them even tho the invoices state payment on receipt of goods.

Money up front NO exceptions, heard all the bloody excuses I care to hear.

If they want it in a hurry cash or paypal, if they havent either they need to find someone who does!
Cheques nowadays begining to be a thing of the past.

Pity a few spoil it for the rest, sometimes from people who you know have it but mess you about on a promise. (Or the others all flash and no cash )

If they want to come the c**t should be named and shamed.

Sorry just my thoughts

Yep, Paypal is the way to go - you can negotiate their % down once you show turnover.

This cheque in the post thing is dull, however some people are genuine, I received a cheque / entry form for the South Coast Marathon a few days ago!!

Many thanks for comments Gaz - and part of me would love to do some naming and shaming but I know it will just end up as a slanging match and do no one / the sport any good.

We actually had to go to the Small Claims court earlier this year to get our money against one large race team - which we won easily - sorry state of affairs in what is a small sport.

This was a team who could afford to pay - but just would not. Then we have others who probably should not be racing if they cannot affors to pay their bills.
