    Comments:
    "Most of the items advertised are collect only, but you are able to specify the area that you would like to search in. We have purchased many items on this site from snow tyres to a staircase! The majority of sellers are French so a basic level of the language is needed but a great site. This is the site that I recommend the most to my friends and family!" (RR, Dec 2010)

    "I don’t really buy DVDs anywhere else now, as they deliver free to France, really quickly and cheaply. Great fast service. Watch the exchange rate though, as for delivery in France you’re obliged to pay in euros and this can sometimes be a trap." (VS, June 2013)
