Never bought anything from them but just got wiggle to price match a garmin 500 from handtec. Just felt more reassured buying from wiggle. And free sweets!

they've been around quite a while, i've bought from them in the past, reputation is ok afaik, but any supplier can have off days, probably isn't a single one that you'd find complaint free

but if you can get price match for the same item plus free haribo...

Handtec are excellent, always fantastic service and deal with warranty problems very well. Nothing to be worried about with them. Always cheaper for Garmin products than anywhere else too.

Email sales@wiggle.co.uk with price match in subject explain what you want and send them link to the cheaper price. They got back to me in a few hours with a code and I had it 2 days later with free delivery.

Only bought once from them but no issues, good communications, etc. Wouldn't hesitate though Wiggle is my first choice for everything due to the great CS
