    Peter offers a very efficient service and gave a very quick response to all of my questions. Communications were excellent. Fast service with fantastic prices and I would thoroughly recommend using him for both buying and selling. A very honest business and all completed within 5 days.
    Caroline Lyden, Gloucester

    Over the years I have done business with you, both buying and selling. In all cases your prices have been fair and reasonable. The speed you have shown in responding to an order and the diligence you have shown in packing the goods has impressed me. Your rapid response and fairness in quoting a purchase price has equally impressed me, especially bearing in mind that I live in Chile. That together with your speed of payment convinces me to highly recommend you. May your business prosper and I look forward to doing business again with you in the future.
    Aubrey Whinney, San Antonio, Chile

    I must start by thanking Peter and the staff for the fantastic service I have received. Peter is what you call a true gentleman. A man of his word and wonderfully honest.
    Aden Adam, Blackpool, Lancs.

    Having been kindly given a 1970's Leica, I was unsure the best way to achieve a sale at a fair market value. The ebay lottery wasn't appealing. I approached a couple of London camera stores a year ago who were very sniffy about dealing over the phone and by email. I gave up.
    The other day I came across Peter Walnes' website. I contacted Peter and within an hour, he had assessed the value of the camera and offered what I considered a fair price. He arranged and paid for a UPS pickup and made payment as soon as it arrived. Throughout the selling process Peter provided me with the surety and confidence that I was dealing with a professional. A completely refreshing approach to business built on mutual trust.

    I received the lens today, earlier than expected. Thank you so much for a terrific service. I cannot thank you enough for the prompt response to everything. 
    Anandh Owen, London N10

Just to let you know how pleased I am with my purchase. Prospective customers can buy with confidence. It was a pleasure to speak to you when I first enquired about the lens, extremely well packed and of excellent quality. I will not hesitate buying from you in the future.

The screen arrived today. Safe, sound, perfect and super speedy. Thank you again for contacting me when one became available. This kind of customer service has become too rare.
Karen Heller, Piedmont, California, USA

You came highly recommended by a friend who has bought Leica equipment from you in the past. I can see now why you are held in such high regard. It is so refreshing to find someone who responds so promptly and who offers a fair price for equipment. Thanks again.
