I would like to thank the company for what I feel is the best customer service I've ever encountered. My clock is now working perfectly which after approximately 20 years is also testament to the quality of your products. I have been greatly impressed by the efficiency and professionalism from the start of my query and nothing seems to have been too much trouble for each member of staff involved along the way.


Thank you very much for all the effort taken to ensure that hopefully my clock will continue to operate for many years to come.
