Ordered Tuesday evening, delivered Thursday morning. Excellent service, great product, could not ask for more. Very pleased and will be shopping from here again.

Waited outside shop in the rain as opened late. No apology or explanation, the guy that opened up didn't even acknowledge me let alone speak to me. Stock was a shambles, no organisation or logic to how stock was placed, and the shop was very untidy. No help offered and then he took a call leaving me to hunt around. When I eventually found what I wanted I realised there were no prices. By then a second chap had arrived so I asked him, to be told to look it up on their web page! One item was listed the other two weren't so he came up with a price for all 3 which did seem reasonable. All in all I will stick to on line in future.

I ordered several items in a batch and heard nothing post ordering, after two weeks I got concerned and tried calling several times, the phone was never answered. I then tried email and never got a reply, I quoted product and order number, to no avail. Fortunately I had paid through PayPal and they picked up the case, resulting in a full refund. I fear that using other payment methods may have left me at a loss as no one responded to me. At best appalling customer service, at worst………….

Sadly let down by poor after-sales service. I bought 5 carriage kits, which I was attracted to as these offered something not available elsewhere. One of the kits had some missing parts (insufficient roof ventilators to complete). I emailed twice and received a response saying replacement parts would be sent. They never turned-up. I subsequently emailed and phoned multiple times but with no response. In the end I had to source parts from an alternative supplier to complete the kit, which I should not have to do with a c.£30 kit. I would now be reluctant to buy further kits from Osborns.

Fair prices, international shipping times could be better. Customer service is fairly responsive, which is nice. I've ordered 3 locomotives from them.
