A friend sent us a bird feeder which he purchased via Homebits in the UK; we live in Canada and were disappointed to find the porcelain bird feeder was broken on arrival; it had shifted within the padding material in the large box it had been sent in.
When we told Hannah at Homebits about this she immediately sent a replacement at no charge, wrapped very tightly and thoroughly in bubble wrap so the mis-hap did not recur. The new bird feeder was intact.
We were impressed by the attitude of the customer service representatives at Homebits who were really quick to offer a replacement and very decent and helpful throughout.

"I don't think I can be of much use to you regarding a product review - I bought refill memo pads for the Eva Solo Memo Board, so I knew exactly what I wanted, and obviously I would be pleased to get what I want!!!
However, from a Customer Service point of view, I certainly do have something to say!
Hannah Gibbons dealt with my original order, which due to supplier negotiations at the time, you could not fulfill.
However, as soon as the item became available again through Homebits, she contacted me, and I was able to get what I want!!!
Now that makes for happy customers.
Thank you, Hannah!"
