Simply great

I went to Simply Computers website after seeing their advert in PCA, registered with them and placed an order within 15 minutes. The order was received 700 miles away in less than 22 hours. This is excellent service and should be a model for all mail order firms. They deserve a mention in this forum.I suppose the Post Office did well too!

Sounds excellent service but....

700 miles away?

  FEEBS 13:19 24 Jan 2005

Yes it's about 650 miles from London to 80 miles north of Inverness by road - maybe 700 was a bit optimistic nevertheless still good service at any distance.

Sorry to be pedantic but according to the visitscotland website it's 575 miles by road to Inverness:

Land's End to John O'Groats is 874 miles.

Sorry, you did say 80 miles north of Inverness and not Inverness itself...:-(

Know the area well; even stayed at Skibo several times.

  FEEBS 16:31 24 Jan 2005

Stuartli - Skibo is on the other coast (east coast) to me and isn't as far. Look for Gairloch on the map.
Spider9 - my thread was only concerned with the delivery service - whether the goods are ok and the customer service adequate only time will tell! Here's hoping!

To the best of my knowledge Inverness is still situated on the east coast of Scotland and you drive through going to Skibo...:-)

To quote you: "Yes it's about 650 miles from London to 80 miles north of Inverness by road.."

I'm 80 northwest of Inverness if you are going to be pedantic ie on the West Coast.

FEEBS & Stuartli - are you married??
Sounds like me and the wife having one of our normal in-car conversations !
Is this a consumer forum or a travelogue?
ps Last time I was in Inverness 'four and twenty...' had just left for the Ball at Kirriemuir!!

  Forum Editor 08:16 25 Jan 2005

regardless of whether your distance estimate was a hundred yards out............or was it 150?

  FEEBS 08:44 25 Jan 2005

When perfectly genuine praise for service degenerates into a geographical discussion of how far and how many degrees off true north somewhere is - it's ridiculous! Bri-an you sum it up well. Stuartli - get a life!
