Supplier Feedback Forum Category


Recommended Posts

I would find it incredibly helpful if there was a forum category devoted to supplier feedback.  I've stumbled across posts which recommend suppliers of parts which has been really helpful to me, but a list of recommended suppliers and member feedback on purchases good and bad would be so nice.

So far, my experience generally is that the self proclaimed specialists are often found wanting whilst cheaper parts on Ebay have served me well as the sellers depend on good customer feedback - instead of a fancy web site.

Finally, how about some negotiation with "the usual suspects" to get a club member discount?

I think it's always been a dicey subject for the club in the past due to:

1) Concerns over being dragged into slander/liable situations for negative feedback

2) The awkward situation of trying to generate advertising revenue for the club when members are critical of "certain suppliers" on the forum etc.

Having said that, I'm not a club official and imho people need to know about shonky goods/suppliers. (I just understand the clubs past caution)

Club Triumph is run by it’s members for its members   Unlike some other clubs which are run as a business and are ltd companies, this  puts a different perspective on what the club can safely do without any potential legal issues 

there are reputable suppliers ie Canley Classics, TD Fitchetts, Chris Wittor, James Paddock to name but a few who are Triumph owners themselves and have years of experience and can advise on most issues

The problem is that anybody who has had a poor experience, real or often unrealistic, makes a very loud noise, wheras the vast majoity of happy customers say nothing.

I rarely find ebay or amazon reviews helpful. They usually talk of delivery speed.

The main suppliers as listed above have a longstanding commitment to the Triumph brand, and I have bought from them all. I have had the occasional hiccup, but it has always been sorted efficiently and to my satisfaction. 

For any purchase, you can ask on the forum who is the best supplier, never forgetting some stuff varies in quality from batch to batch. The sellers try to only sell good stuff, but sometimes they can only sell what is available. 

Also here you will get comments from people who use their cars, and that is useful as you will want longevity.
