gear is not bad, but they do tend to deliver gear at mad hours during the night.
Think they use some couriers that would usually drop gear to the site at 3 and 4 in the morning

We used these at one stage, found the gear to be low quality as said by superg.

They went bust and came with an online diy focused business. The gear they were selling orignally was rubbish - Zahler was the make of most of it. Dont know where it came from but it was poor and the text on the boxes was often misspelt. Like emersion instead of immersion. The cable was also funny stuff and hard to work with and strip.

Well all, used meteor for a few jobs, quality generally poor enough, prices noting special plus once they have your phone number they hound you non stop!

I dealt with them once, Got a phone call at 4am for delivery after waiting 10 days.
Felt like shooting the messanger. They have there own transport comming down
from the north. There gear is not the best, shop around and you will find better
quality and just as cheap.

Has anyone used the decorative switches and sockets from meteor electrical? I'm looking to replace the standard white with silver switches and sockets and the prices on the site seem pretty good. Are they worthwhile or does anyone have any other recommendations?
