02/03/2018 08:43:14Hello. I appreciated the fact that the machine was quickly sent, despite that another article from my order was missing and was expected to be sent later. I just would have appreciated that this was mentionned by mail. Because I thought the article was just missing and I had to report it myself. Thanks a lot anyway. The service was good in general.

09/01/2018Fantastic service and fantastic site . I ordered more than I needed but this was because of postage . It's a shame there isn't a small items postage charge . But end of the Day it all came quick and no issues so can't argue . Thanks and will use again
21/12/2017I think you sohould optimize your website for mobile devices and tablets too.
01/12/2017Before ordering the Flexloc torch/superflex hose package I wasn't sure to what extent it would be compatible with all my other WP9 torch parts and my TIG welder. Rapid Welding quickly identified all the part numbers required, and delivered promptly once ordered. Thank you.
01/12/2017Have used this site a few times now and I can't Fault it very professional.items always comes well packaged . And on time . Very help if you have any queries relating to a product.
13/11/2017Ordered late on a Friday from UK arrived Switzerland! on a Tuesday Astonishingly fast delivery and still cheaper then buying it here. Top banana...
01/11/2017Everything good, but website marked down because it was not obvious to me that the goods i wanted to order were on "next day delivery". Probably my mistake and your on line adviser quickly gave me the information. I ordered and received the goods next day at the time I was given. Well done and thanks.
30/10/2017Great service, very helpful staff
26/10/2017My order arrived ,late due to out of stock. Received email from your customer services , explaining The situation . Very informative the range of welding stock you carry is very very vast , choice and options good plus communication over the phone good . The reason I use rapid welding instead of a supplier nearer me is simple your range and price cannot be beat . Usually if I order from your Webb Site it arrives in Burnley 2 days after very happy customer Anthony bottomley
24/10/2017Excellent service and stock of quality products, will certainly use in the future.
23/10/2017As per usual a brilliant service, very reliable.
20/10/2017All good thanks, just wish that you were closer to where I am
20/10/2017very pleased many thanks
16/10/2017 More Information about progress of shipment would be good. Also a website, which works on mobile devices. Rest is perfekt, thanks.
16/10/2017I would like the tig torch for the machine but it always seems to be out of stock, will you be getting them in again soon Regards Steve
04/10/2017Most helpful and very pleased with service
04/10/2017Very good service. kept well informed when one item was out of stock but was delivered in a couple of days. Thanks
03/10/2017Great company to do business with very helpful. Shall recommend thank you.
03/10/2017The wrong item was sent for one item on my order. After a quick phone call the correct item was despatched immediately. Excellent service.
12/09/2017Fantastic service and fast delivery to north of Inverness great customer focus and knowledge Well done to all at Rapid there is no reason to go anywhere else's for all your welding requirements Thanks for all your help Derek
11/09/2017Very tailored service - the staff listened carefully to my needs, answered my questions straightforwardly and provided a product entirely suited to my requirements, at an affordable price. I wish all online purchases could be this successful!
22/08/2017Able to find the product required quite quickly and ordering was simple. Goods delivered on day as promised. Many thanks
18/08/2017I live in Sydney Australia . when i require welding equipment i contact Rapid Welding because i know their products credibility and pricing are unbeatable. .. even with import duties and shipping the dealers here in Aus cant compete with Rapid Welding .. these guys deserve your business .. i just purchased a Kemppi AC /DC 2300 rig including foot pedal & shipping... the best price on the planet .. and delivered from the UK to Australia in 3 days .. over the weekend ? .. i dont know these people but they put alot of money in my pocket ... so why wouldnt i rap them .
17/08/2017Well assorted welding supply with very good customer service. Recieved a shorter torch cable than ordered. Sorted out on mail same day, new cable sent next day - and get to keep the first one. Thanks
15/08/2017This is my second purchase from Rapid Welding ..after receiving professional advice from Andrew Doe he offered an unbeatable deal .. I paid for it on friday UK and unpacked it monday iin Sydney Australia ..a ballistic misile couldn't have done better .. even after shipping and duties , Andy saved me a bomb .. these guys a smart business people - small profit - big turnover .. keepin the customer satisfied !!! many thanks Mike
15/08/2017You guys Rock!! Excellent service, value for money and fast delivery to Australia .thanks from a very satisfied customer
05/08/2017Bonjour, j'ai une remarque à communiquer au niveau du câble d'alimentation électrique ,la prise de branchement ne correspond pas au norme suisse(fiche) donc pour l'utilisation de mon appareil il faut me fournir un adaptateur pour pouvoir,brancher mon appareil chez moi, merci de votre compréhension. Je m' intéresse à l'achat du couple plasma.Faites -moi une offre avec tous les renseignements ,langue française, branchement électrique pour la suisse. Avec le nom du gaz adapté à l'utilisation. Avec ou sans compresseur. Meilleures salutations Michel Ducret
04/08/2017The only reason I would not rec you to others is, of course, that as you know we are also a distributor and therefore we would be endeavouring to service our customers ourselves, rather than referring them to someone else.
01/08/2017An excellent purchasing experience, having originally tried to purchase this item from another company. they sent me the wrong item (twice) and delivery was slow (7 days). I received the visor from you the next day. However, your price was considerably more, otherwise I might have come to you in the first place!
18/07/2017I have been a customer of Rapid welding for a few years now, and I'm always pleased with the top quality service I have recieved, whether I was buying a new machine or just consumables. 10/10 as usual !
15/06/2017Warp drive fast delivery you ask for a call back and they do.
30/05/2017As usual fast delivery and a good price,can't fault them.
23/05/2017I live in France and have trouble getting certain items of welding consumables. Its reassuring to know that I can order from a reliable supplier and have those items delivered quickly and securely. Many thanks.
16/05/2017It would be better to supply (with a cost) with RCD UK plug
11/05/2017Extremely helpful staff, pleasure to do business with.
27/04/2017I am in Australia and bought one of your TIG foot pedals to suit my Cebora machine because I could not find one anywhere locally. I am absolutely stoked with the product! One of the best welding purchases I have made for sure. Thankyou!
27/04/2017Rapid Welding is my go to site for everything I need, I’m only a hobby welder and I really don’t purchase very often or in any great quantity but I still feel I’m treated as if I was a professional welder buying ££££ every visit. Great prices and a surprisingly fast delivery.
27/04/2017The only reason I marked the 'Goods in good order' down is that the incorrect item was dispatched to us, however once this was realized 'Rapid Welding' quickly arranged dispatch of the correct item, excellent service.
26/04/2017One item was out of stock yet the complete delivery was made the next day. This was a last minute order - Very impressive service especially as I needed to use an overseas credit card and had stringent delivery conditions to match with another courier delivery service. Definitely will use this supplier again ( and get the order in earlier).
26/04/2017overall, good expierience
31/03/2017Brilliant as normal.
31/03/2017I did receive the wrong welder. Apparently, Fronius wanted to clear out stock and I did not get the welder I specifically asked for. I am returning it. I don't know whether Rapid can send me the correct one in exchange or whether this will be a straight return. I don't appreciate having to pay customs, duties, and taxes on something I can't use because Fronius sent the wrong machine.
31/03/2017My first delivery was 50 percent damaged. I sent photos of damaged goods by email twice but had no reply. When I rang it was sorted and received a replacement next day brilliant service.
31/03/2017Unfortunately, we not yet received the goods we ordered due to poor handling of PostNord. But the website, prices and communication has been very competitive/good.
23/03/2017Very please with the speed of delivery, communication and quality of product. Would defiantly recommend and use again.
17/03/2017It is now past time that any customer can log in and keep track of their orders past and present. To my mind it is your biggest failing, and one that causes me to think hard before placing another order. Neil.
25/02/2017Rapid Welding customer service is A++. Any question I had was respond in the same day. Their prices are great and shipping was super fast. I'm in the states and asked how long would it take for me to receive the item one of their employees said 3-5 days. Which I thought was great since it was coming from the U.K. But that was not the case I received my item the next day. Super happy with item and will recommend and use them again. Thx for the great service.
20/02/2017I have used you a few times and always been happy .local united welding stocking less and less ,so you may be hearing from us more often Peter
10/02/2017Fabulous service and UN-beatable price yet again. RW leaves Ebay, Amazon et al easily for dead. Wish I'd found out about you guys years ago. Thanks most kindly. (From Australia too!!!!)
26/01/2017Good website, speed of delivery very impressive
26/01/2017It's very perfect Thank you
26/01/2017Thank you - telephone order was taken very efficiently. Goods keenly priced, arrived very quickly and well packed. Couldn't ask for better!
24/01/2017I have been buying welding equipment and consumables for years with Rapid Welding and I am quite happy about their range and pricing. More importantly the chat, email or phone support to select the right items for my needs is particularly helpful - their professionals do take to the time to help you, especially that I am not a sharp pro welding expert, I just use welding as a means to build things, therefore good advice is paramount in the maze of technical offer.
16/01/2017Atención,Rapidez,Seriedad,Precio,Calidad.....quién da más?
16/01/2017Excellent 1st class service and advice
