I used the pre-Owned selling service because I had so many items to sell I was wondering how easy it would be. I am pleased to say that it all worked perfectly well and I would recommend it to anyone.

Would normally be a ten but recently their website or other "Processes" Seems to have dictated that their normally human (And Humane) attitude to their customers has to be sacrificed. Ergo, I placed an order and later realised I had left something out. When I emailed them to ask if it could be added they refused because "Once an order is finalised nothing can be changed", and they did not offer any other option than to placed a new order - And suffer the extra postage which, to Australia, is not insignificant.

I offered several items for sale under Hattons pre-Owned scheme. They were very easy to deal with by email and courier and everything went very smoothly. I was very happy with the service and would certainly deal with this company again (Both as a buyer or a seller) without hesitation.

An item was sent to me in error, I advised Hatton's and sent the item back, but have not had the postage I paid refunded, My issue is how this was dealt with by Hatton's. Payment has not been made and emails ignored, this is the worst I have ever seen. However, as Hatton's reserve the right not to publish I doubt if this email will see the light of day. Thankfully there are better model railway shops out there.

I have used Hatton's for a few years and have always found them to be very professional and helpful. I placed three orders recently and all arrived on time excellently packed. I will always use Hatton's as my Model Railway supplier. Their product knowledge is second-to-none.

Bought an OO 2-4-2T with DCC and sound. They installed and tested it. It arrived 10 days after I ordered it, well packed, safe and sound, in full working order. Outstanding! I don’t know of a comparable company in the USA. Order from them in full confidence.

I model US and German and their ‘used’ HO stock is always good value. No quibbles either when I once returned an engine not quite as described. Very helpful on e-mail queries and they reply really quickly. Quick delivery and everything is well packaged for postal protection.
