If you buy from these guys you will get fast service and back up should you have a problem. Thanks to Steve once again.
Very prompt and very efficient service. I look forward to doing more business with you.
I had a problem with a screen (not a GJS one) and Stephen was more than happy for me to bring it in so he could check it and offer some tips and advice... greatly appreciated :)
