Posted models on the quite extensive database which saved having to fill in copious amounts of info. Offers came through well within the timescale suggested. Once accepted, payments were quick and via secure system. I have now got back much valued space in my storage cupboard, Thanks.
Excellent service very easy
Easy to use website and efficient staff with a quick turnaround and payment straight into my bank account. Have used them several times and would recommend them.
