Hi all,
Id like to buy some clear lenses from www.little-cars.co.uk, but it would be my first purchase with this company and as they have no online shopping tool its needed to provide the credit card details via phone or email.

Is it a realiable and trustful company?

Thanks a lot for any answer.

Little Cars are a regular trader at the majority of model shows in the UK and I buy from them all the time, mostly using a bank or credit card and have never had any problems whatsoever.
Always had reliable and freindly service.

Hope this helps,

Little Cars trades around the UK model-show circuit, and we're having them at our show next month. I've never had any problems with Paul.

For my e-bay and over seas purchases ( kits , books cds ) , I got my self another credit card . One with a $ 200 doller credit limit . So If it gets hi jacked your not out a pile of money . Its also easier to keep track of hobby purchases as their all on one card . Just don't let the spouse hear about it

I did exactly the same as Jim, a cash limited credit card, which I only use for internet purchases so I can see really quickly if it has been hijacked.

And regarding the original question, Little-Cars are good people who are honest and conscientious, they exist to serve modellers, not to rip them of or make a fast buck.
