Great service (unexpected), I knew the product (no surprises) Review by DJBen
You'll be impressed by the owner of this business. He actually cares that you are happy with your order, confirms its on its way and checks after a couple of weeks whether you are still happy with your purchase. This form of leadership is hard to find when making online purchases. You'll be happy with the service. (Posted on 8 February 2018)
