Hattons has been my go-to supplier since I returned to the hobby 8 years ago and I have never had any problems. Their pre-owned items have proved to be especially good value over recent years as my own refurbishment skills have improved. Also, the online chat option is good for chasing those forever on-order items that we await from the far East.

I've bought model railway items from Hattons for a number of years now and have always received excellent service from them.
Their website is easy to use, the range available is vast and ordering is easy. Delivery is quick and they keep you informed throughout the process.

I have been dealing with Hattons since the 1950s - at first through my Father, then in my own right from the mid 1960s to the present day. This alone should suggest they are pretty damn good. there are plenty of good model shops in the UK, but I generally deal with Hattons through choice. They are excellent. On top of their game. I would very strongly recommend them as fist choice.

I have dealt with Hatton's for over 50 years and have always found their staff helpful and have product knowledge of their continually expanding range of items, usually in stock. Their service to me has been excellent, no item has ever been delivered with damage and their delivery options are superb. They have done well and deserve their success.

This is not my first order through Hattons.
My other orders where fine and received on time.
As I run my own business you will, from time to time have issues, but to me it's how you deal with them. Unfortunately my last order falls in this category and the service I received from Anthony at Hattons was not to the standard I would expect to keep a customer happy.
I placed an order late Thursday night and paid extra to have it delivered next day. Next day being Saturday by Yodel.
Friday Hattons rang my wife and told her part of my order was not in stock. The part being 3 x Skale bulbs to go with the Skale power strip on the same order. She told them to send the order with out them as she knew I needed the delivery.
Saturday came and got to 14:00 with no delivery so I rang Hattons, Anthony told me to ring Yodel, didn't see it my place to chase my order from Hattons when they should do it.
Rang Yodel and was told by an automated message system that my parcel was delayed and to ring where I ordered the goods from, yes that's all it said and then hung up on me. No chance to talk to a person.
Tuesday rang Anthony again to explain the postal issue and the fact I didn't need the power strip due to them not have the bulbs in stock and I got the impression he wasn't bothered, he offered a £3 refund of the £7 paid for delivery and I can pay return postage for the unwanted part if I wanted to.
The way I would have dealt with it if it was my customer would be to refund all the postage and the cost of the power strip or arrange for return postage.
I think in summary Hattons are okay if nothing goes wrong, if it does good luck you have been warned.
Hattons if you read this, customer service skills not up to scratch. One customer lost and a bad review.

I have been dealing with Hattons for a fair number of years purchasing mainly 009 gauge track and stock. I am also interested in the range of traction engines manufactured by Oxford Diecast. Their prices are very fair and their service is first class.

Excellent service and communication. i live in France and the communications about the delivery is fast and friendly even if the international Royal mail tracking system is not always reliable . I will advise Hattons to all members of the railway modeling club to which I belong.

Just received my Birdcage coaches. Packaging was superb. Thanks for the regular updates on their progress (4 years), for which I am very grateful. Looking forward to the H class to match them to.
I wish I lived nearer to pay the premises a visit.
