Opinion: Researchers want your medical data, you don't want to share -- and it's no wonder, considering our overlords' attitude to privacy.

It's a real shame really -- this would have been 5 stars if they were not trying to mislead customers. When you make a purchase, you receive an item number. That's it. After hearing nothing for over a week. it took days for someone to pick up the customer service phone -- and even then, it took 3 attempts to speak to someone who had a clue what was going on. I received my item several weeks later. It is excellent. Well packaged, great delivery driver, brilliant quality -- especially for the price point. This is the thing: when they say 'dispatched in 5 days' they mean 'dispatched to them in 5 days, and you will be called whenever their driver happens to go down a route close to you, which may be weeks later.' If this was not misleading, if customer service was improved and you were communicated with, it would be 5 stars. Honestly: Your customers are happy to wait if you tell them exactly what is going on. Up to you: Excellent furniture, but dreadful customer service and no real delivery dates. I wouldn't use again purely out of principle.

These guys constructed a custom fence and lock-and-bolt wooden gate for me. They are incredibly friendly and efficient - and I loved the result. Reasonable price, very solid construction and great workmanship, and they also offered me some advice on a garden wall which needs some TLC. Would absolutely recommend and if I have any more fencing jobs in the future I'll be calling them again.
