Erm - you do realise that couriers treat Fragile stickers as an invitation to try to break your parcel don't you?
Pack it well but keep it anonymous and don't give the couriers any hint that they should try and break it.
Oh dear - I had to finally go to Trading Standards about a particular synth repair outfit...
...only to find that the ConDems have cut Trading Standards for 'consumers', and they just tell you to go to Citizens Advice instead. So I've referred the matter there instead.
Horrible to have to do it though, it's only going to end in tears :frown: I seem to have run out of other options though.

Citizens Advice then just sent me an email saying "well, the trader appears to be in violation of x, y and z, so write to them and tell them off". Which I'd done already and nothing had happened! Which is why I went to Trading Standards.
Ho hum. I guess I'll write a Final Letter... if that fails it's County Court time. Arrrgh.
Just like to echo the good reports about Andy Jury, Synth Prof. He's repaired a load of stuff for me and always the work has always been first class - also he's a really nice guy.
After some bad experiences with a couple of other "professional" repair outfits, I'm glad I found Andy and I will NEVER use anyone else - he is a bit of a wiz when it comes to getting old synths going again!
