Just ordered wheels spacers from www.lr2go.com, then realised no contact details can't get hold of them and nothing sent to me. I have called trading standards and this is seems to them a scam however nothing can be done as the company has 30 days until there is a problem if i haven't received my items. If any one has used this company and has received or not received there items,

lease let me know asap, I have there address, thanks to the internet whether its the right one or not.

at current seems that i have lost my money, but if i have i want to warn others, about this.

many thanks

My suspicion is it's just a drop shipping company where you place an order, he orders the part from another reseller who ships it to you directly and he gets the difference in cost. They are easy to set up - and most are operated from someones bedroom! No contact details is a further sign of that.

Although the margins are low, there is no risk and the only capital outlay is the web site. While I applaud people doing this instead of signing on, to me they feel a bit like a parasite! They tend not to drive more sales for the manufacturer and rarely advertise - so they are just piggybacking off someone elses advertising.

They have little knowledge of the products and just pass queries and warranty issues back to their supplier. All the supplier gets out of it is less money than if they sold it direct but has to provide the support & logistics as if they had!

Not my favorite business model! Can you tell???

Just to clear up any issues - lr2go is a test site for lrspareparts. Any payment problems, check with bank or card provider first. Drop shipping. - lrspareparts send goods out with their own packing and directly, so drop shipping is impossible. Many items supplied have their lr brand stamp - lrspareparts exhibit at many international parts shows - next show - will have a stand a Automechanika Dubai UAE - 11.06.2013 - 13.06.2013 - Stand No: 6AM611Hall: 6.
