B&Q

Valley Retail Park, 5 Hesterman Way, Croydon CR0 4YA, UK – 020 8649 5600

It is a big B&Q so no surprises here - except this is the first place I have been to where they clearly don't want anyone in anything bigger than a small car! They have installed a chicane made of very solid and big metal bollards which you have to manoeuvre found to get into the car park. I consider myself to be a reasonably adept driver but i have a long car and It is a heart in mouth job every time I enter. To the extent that, if I can, I now avoid this place. I have no doubt that it is a measure to foil travellers, but they impact on everyone else!

Fancy looking for something you put in the garden in the garden section and then asking an employee for help! Very rude staff, basically told me I should know where all the stock is and it was obviously in the household goods... Which they weren't anyway! Luckily the young guy on the tills was far more friendly and helpful. So, stay away from the miserable old guy...

Useful store selling stuff you often can't seem to get in chain stores, like spirits of salt. Helpful staff. Reasonable prices.

fairly cheap and cheerful. For DIY it does the basics quite well, it's only store of its kind in the area.

Croydon Tool Hire Ltd

87A Whitehorse Rd, Croydon CR0 2JJ, UK – 020 8684 2121

Excellent service! It is always a concern when booking with a company for the first time, but the staff here are both well informed, educated on their tools, and go out of their way to be helpful. The delivery and collection of the item was excellent and they were considerate enough to keep in touch with us and work with us so the job ran smoothly. All in all an excellent set up and I would not hesitate to recommend to family and friends.

Part one of two... Jason has been incredibly helpful and is well educated as to what I was looking for and required for the project in question. He sent me a photo of the item and a complete price list within 15 minutes and now we will have delivery on Friday.
