Anybody ever deal with a UK company, Patrs4Engines?

Ordered some stuff about 2 months ago, maybe 70 pounds ($200) and nothing. A few emails were exchanged now nothing. All communication was extremely cordial. Thanks in advance.

Re: Anybody ever deal with a UK company, Patrs4Engines?

I just got some parts from them. Seem an OK vendor. Parts got here from UK in less than a week. Of course the shipping cost almost as much as the parts - not their fault. I will be using them again. I still haven't found a US supplier of individual things for my 4-108. It seems most want to sell a whole kit of stuff.

Yes, never had a problem. They are very reliable.
It may pay to find a Freight forwarder, or customs broker in the UK, they will bundle the stuff and ship it for a fraction of the cost... Or you can broker your own or freight and hve it picked up... It's pretty easy to do.
