Default GS Hobby......

Has anyone had an experience with GS Hobby?? I don't normally do this as things generally get resolved but do they actually answer e-mails or questions at all??????? Managed to order things from one online store in the US about 1-2 weeks after ordering from GS and that's arrived already but i'm still waiting for the GS order to come through. . . . i'm i waisting my time with the above shop or do they have a legit reason (illness etc)?

I have ordered 2 times from there and on both orders where the parts were in stock after a couple weeks of waiting I had to call and ask about my order, then they took care of it. I forgot what the excuse was but it was not shipped yet. Something regarding staff.

I sent them email twice before, with no reply. But they manage to sent me newsletters on their latest promotions and stuff weird.

PS: I didn't ask them about what they have, I only asked them do they ship to this part of the world.

I've been to the shop, it is a small operation and might just be a human error. They seem like good people, I would say shoot them another email or give him a call.

Well i did pick the cheapest USPS service but man its the second time its happen though . I did email them yesterday but im not sure about buying from them again . If i got a Email saying that it was going out after the day it was supposed to be or before i wouldnt have a issue .

But i do know how small LHS and stores work though its tuffer with a smaller staff.

Yea only had one issue with GSHobby once last year with a order taking 4 days before it was sent out i had to email them. And they replied back and said the owner was on Vacation yea i was mad but i got it in the mail not to long after that.


Ordered from them twice this year and got my stuff sent out within two days so il shop with them still. Prices and shipping is not bad on most of there things not all.
