Welcome to the forum LittleBlue. Not like an established firm to bilk their clients. :grouphug:

Who was the firm and what were the circumstances? I presume that you followed it up and got no satisfaction?

I changed an order with Thornes by telephone from wired brood foundation and wired super foundation, to wired brood and unwired super. The invoice arrived OK, but the brood foundation was unwired. A quick telephone in December and they sent me the wired brood foundation. 200 sheets.

To save costs, I will be taking the unwired brood foundation with me when I visit Stonleigh and check it in then, when the note against my customer record will record the event.

I am more than impressed that they trust me sufficiently to let me hold their money for the best part of 4.5 months. I have a trading record with them, but i'm just one of many and not that significant. You can read similar reports from other members regarding the same and other suppliers, so although there might be a few fast types out there, they are very much in the minority I am glad to say.

PLEASE!!! please please please!
that would be great, andypigeon, we are about 20 miles from Derby. And cant wait to get started!

Hombre, I eventually got a refund (a cheque in the post with no acknowledgement) I appreciate the world of beekeeping has been inundated with health problems, but the company gave me so many false arrangements, broken delivery times, then said they wouldnt deliver (I'd paid a huge fee for it!) then several months after the original delivery time, told me the nuc was diseased.
By then, it was too late to get any from anywhere else.
And whilst they still had my money, I couldnt afford to.
It wasnt thornes, they are great!
