Arun Fasteners, Ford, West Sussex ~AVOID...!!

[b]Replacing nuts, bolts or fasteners???? Then ARUN FASTENERS Best Avoided...... small quantities of fasteners (i.e. 24 of these but in stainless) "too much trouble" "I've got to answer the phone" ~ no other customers and located in a very "low quality" location...... a perfect example of a bad small british business :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :evil: [/b]

These guys just happen to be in my village outside Guildford. They do mail order.

Nothing is too much trouble even through my average spend is no more than a few quid at a time. On the other hand they supply to some large trade customers in the area, so have a very extensive stock and are very knowledgeable. Great for fasteners used in construction too.

Cheers

Namrick & Orbital are pretty good as well.

If you can't be a good example, then you might as well be a terrible warning

Thanks to both above!!

Yes I agree both are good!!.... I used to use "Orbital" when I lived near Watford and have bought stuff from "Namrick" at Car shows.

Also both the above were very good and helpfull when you turned up with a handfull of old fasteners and said .. "have you got these in S/S"

Thanks again for your posts ( I am in cambelt change mode @ present ).... hope to make the Hen & Chicken again (made it once last year! )
