    Sidmaster

    Hello All.
    Has anybody had any contact with Sidmaster UK to have a Jaguar clock repaired recently. I sent my X300 clock to them about 3 weeks ago(by recorded post) for the usual repair, but to date I have heard nothing back from them. I have tried to contact them by phone and email, but to no avail. I also paid them £54 for this repair. Any help would be appreciated. I just want to get the clock back, at this stage.
    Tony.

    I can see from google they are open until 1830 today. Perhaps try a different phone to call them on.

    In that case Tony, all I can say is when you have time, ROAD TRIP. Might be the only way unless they get back to you.

    I was thinking the same, but it would be a very expensive trip to make , and maybe for nothing, if they are closed. I will wait a while, and hopefully there might be a forum member from down that area who might be able to check for me, or might know about them, but thank you for your interest.

    Out of curiosity I googled them and can now understand your concern; not a lot of positives about Sidmaster on the net I'm afraid.

    If I were you I'd start a fresh General thread on here along the lines "Favour required in Gloucester area GL14" and see who's about and if they're willing to do a recce for you.

    Just a thought. Good luck.

    Hi Rowley_1812.
    Yes that might be a better idea. Another forum actually recommends Sidmaster, but I will not give up yet. I am still working on it. Thank you for your interest.

    Hello again. Just to let you know that I finally got my refurbished Jaguar clock back from Sidmaster this morning . All is good. Some internal company problems caused the delay. They gave me a good discount for the inconvenience regarding my item.
    Take Care.
    Richard.
