    Hey,

    Has anyone got any recommendations for buying a gateway in the UK?

    I'm looking for somewhere that ideally does delivery within 2 days!

    Thanks

    Was originally going to order from them but after seeing the thread below I don't think I will.

    You may have just been lucky to be honest. If you are in the UK they ship from a UK warehouse. If you are outside the UK they ship from a Singapore warehouse. If you are in the UK but their UK Gateway stock is out, they'll ship from Singapore.

    I had no issues with new3dscard.co.uk either. And that disclaimer was certainly up when I ordered my gateway in december.

    Well I chanced my arm and ordered a Gateway flashcart from them on Thursday. Got an email on Friday saying it had shipped and haven't got it yet. Fingers crossed for tomorrow lol

    I ended up going with Teensy.co.uk in the end - They said 1 - 3 days so fingers crossed

    Order from them on Sunday and it still hasn't shipped, just says processing.

    They don't reply to emails, their contact form or facebook :(

    To be honest! The only reason I brought from Teensy was due to the fact they offered very quick shipping and delivery.
    Should of saved money and shopped else where

    What can you expect in such a shady business.
