Not so Speedy Cables
« on: July 16, 2020, 16:55:16 »
I stripped my Buckland's dash out at the beginning of lockdown, after calling Speedy Cables to check they were operating. I wanted everything checked and recalibrating and it seemed an opportune moment as all the wiring is being replaced anyway.

After 3 months, they have finally called me following repeated attempts for an update, with a price almost double the original telephone blind guestimate. (I don't have a problem with that.) And the news that it would be 8 weeks at the earliest. I realise we have to accept new normals, but I cannot trust someone with their attitude. I can see the pandemic ending before I get them back.

Needless to say they are being returned.

Any recommendations gratefully received.

James

You should try Speedograph Richfield In Nottingham.
They have ACE & Aceca Cables in stock but not sure about Post War Saloons & Bucklands, but worth a try, they cannot be much different!

I've just had my speedo recalibrated by them and was given the 8 weeks estimate. It was done eventually but I had to chase them twice and after the second time it came within two weeks (it had been with them for about 3months...). Wasn't too much of a problem as car was in storage and lockdown prevented me from getting it back! But the price was as they had quoted and it does work now.

I’ve found Speedy Cables pretty good and if your ask them kindly, they normally do their best. I think we need to remember that we are in unprecedented times and nothing is completely satisfactory.
