Our Service Standard
We value you and your custom. We aim to provide you with industry leading customer service and to make your experience on our website the highlight of your day. By applying a service fee supplement our support department has been able to invest in state of the art technology. Our data is showing that customers are already reaping the rewards of this major investment.. customer queries fell by 96% in 2009.
Please note: that due to lots of important stuff happening we are currently answering all correspondence within 90 working days (our normal response time is within 7 working days). If you have submitted a complaint, refund or expense claim within the last 14 days you still have a long time to wait. Please do not resubmit your correspondence as this will annoy us and will lead to a further delay in response.
Alpkit has a proven service track record in the industry with most of our orders arriving on time anytime and to some of the correct addresses.

Our too good to be to true 99p offers should be taken with a pinch of salt. We cannot guarantee to supply any of the products advertised in these offers however we hope you got a little giggle out of trying.
