      Nothing but good reports from these blokes from what I hear..

      Don't let distance be a factor - old mate has a machine in transport to QLD and the rates are MORE than reasonable.

      Attachment 98390A quick shout out to Joe and Angela for the superbly managed packing and shipping of my recently purchased Black Hole. I was somewhat hesitant to purchase a machine sight unseen after identifying one in Perth but after speaking with Joe it became possible. Within a couple of days of making contact the machine had been packed and collected from a private residence, returned to their warehouse and packed and palletised. Fast forward a couple of weeks and I couldn't be happier. Machine is in even better condition than I had expected and there was no chance of damage in transit due to the level of care taken. Thanks again Joe and Angela. I wouldn't hesitate to use your services again and highly recommend you to anyone who might otherwise be baulking at the idea of shipping a machine across from the west.

      Have to agree with all the previous comments. 2 NIB LE's delivered with great service, nothing seems to much trouble for Joe and Angela, these guys will always take or return your calls.

      Numerous parts ordered, usually in stock and sent asap.
