I ordered some brake pads from this lot and a package turned up with another company's name on it as the consignee - unbeknown to me at the time.
Unfortunately, the package was MT - nothing in it, not a delivery note - nothing.
After much emailing of photo's of said empty package they seem to have got their minds around about who is responsible for this - and it ain't me!
What they do is take orders off the net and then get their suppliers to deliver the parts - they do nothing.
Currently got them to agree that they are responsible for what arrives or doesn't arrive at my gaff and they are sending out another shipment after a strongly worded session of education on company law and distance selling via email on what their responsibilities are.

I suggest that you avoid - https://www.motorcycleproducts.co.uk/

Sounds like your average eBay seller, just middlemen.

I have taken a risk by ordering various things from the depths of China, and also from the Khyber Pass area where they can make a machine gun barrel out of a lorry back axle drive shaft.
All have arrived, (eventually.)

In the last 8 years since we've been here I've ordered shedloads from China / Hong Kong / Singapore etc., probably once a month on average, I've had a couple of problems and both times Ebay has come down on my side.

I've had more problems with purchases from the UK, especially when they are routed via Chronopost.

Never had anything from the Golden Triangle' tho, Wizz!

The odd thing about this consignment was that the package that turned up empty was the sort of envelope that you would expect to contain a calendar or some photographs. It was like two A4 sheets of thick cardboard held flat together. It was obvious to me that because it was perfectly flat, there never had been three brake pad kits packed in it. Could it be that somebody at the sender is doing a little bit of private enterprise?
I signed for it without reading the sender's name on the label- stupid boy!
I am thinking of videoing the delivery of the replacement package just in case - I wonder what our postie will make of that!

The pads turned up packaged properly this time - so all ok now.
