    I pretty sure my IRD is knackered so I was planning on buying a reconditioned unit with reconditioned VCU as this is probably gone too.
    Has anyone used the web site "freelanderirdspecialists.com" if so what's your feedback?
    Can anyone recommend a good supplier of reconditioned units?

    :confused:

    I didn't have the same experience as you.

    I went ahead, ordered and paid for an IRD and VCU from this guy. The delivery was never made and after quiet a few emails trying to find out what was happening he offered a full refund which I accepted. I have not been refunded and he is not answering any emails....

    I would definitely not recommend “freelander IRD specialists”.

    So what is your connection with this company then John Davies? How come you had such good service from them?

    2 people from this forum have now been ripped off by this cowboy outfit.

    For anyone else who is thinking about using freelanderirdspecialists.com....


    DON'T DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!

    THEY ARE A RIP-OFF COWBOY OUTFIT THAT WILL FOB YOU OFF WITH LIES AND BROKEN PROMISES.

    UNLESS YOU ARE RICH AND LIKE THROWING MONEY AWAY STEER CLEAR OF THEM.

    We would like to apologise to anyone who has ordered with us in the month of September to current. We have been experiencing very bad problems and have not delivered in the time scale which is acceptable.

    If anyone cant wait any longer Please get in contact for a refund.

    We are not cowboys as stated above, just having a few problems,

    We appreciate your understandings

    Kind regards

    Supposing your customers might want a re-fund, How would they go about asking for it? Telephone? email? Whats the prefered method and how long should they expect to wait before seeing their money back in FULL?

    I for one will be interested to see the outcome of this.:pop2:

    I beg to differ... I have been trying for over two weeks to get a refund off you. You ignore all my emails but ones sent from a different account asking to buy, you reply to them within hours.

    You do not have a contact telephone number and I never got a reply from a letter I sent to your address which was posted on your website.

    As for John Davis is that anything to do with the street name next to the one you use on your website? (Check google maps.)

    You are a cowboy outfit and I feel stupid for being duped by you, but I shall do my best to make sure others are warned..

    Want to prove otherwise? Then pay back what you've taken.

    then publish a full set of contact details, name, address, phone and email address right here in this thread.

    does this remind anyone else of either "Carry On Abroad" or "Phonejacker" ?

    Don't be silly OP. Only a legitimate business that is genuinely apologetic would post details on here.

    This cowboy outfit aint got the balls to list their details let alone pay back the money they owe.;)

    Not been fully refunded. Got £100 back but been waiting on the remaining £635 for over three weeks now. Keep getting emails telling I am refunded or going to be refunded but as yet nothing.
    If it's a legitimate business why would it take so long to pay a refund and without any explanations to the delays?
    so freelanderirdspecialists if you are a legitimate business what's going on? A perfect opportunity to explain yourself.....

    I spose if freelanderirdspecialists don't have the backbone to answer you guys the next step woule be trading standards and the police. I wonder how many counts of fraud (obtaining goods/services/money by deception) there have been by this company?
