Arrived promptly & as describedReviewed by Roger Ivy on 01 Sep 2016

The item was as described, good price and arrived on time. I'm happy.


Excellent serviceReviewed by kayeff on 10 Oct 2015

Again I can only praise the level of service which my order received. It wasn't the biggest order but was treated as if it was. 100% recommended


Fantastic serviceReviewed by Kayeff on 02 Sep 2015

I cant praise highly enough the service I received when I ordered 2 pieces of mild steel channeling. It wasn't the biggest order they have ever completed and I expected to be shunted down the list of "orders to be completed" - wrong! The channel arrived virtually within hours of the BUY button being pressed. Well packaged and dropped off, as I requested, in my absence. 100% satisfied. I'd recommend Austen Knapman to all.


Nice metal, slowish deliveryReviewed by hughgilhespie on 05 May 2014

Nice to be able to buy steel online but a shame that the delivery service is rather slow and does not include standard columns - unless you live local to Austen Knapman.
