The certificate is awarded where 95% of customers have given the company a ranking of “Excellent” or “Good” across a four point scale. Our rating varied over the year between 99% and 100%. Very few retailers have achieved 100% from Feefo.

Again, thank you to all our customers who have taken the trouble to write a review. It is much appreciated.
