PDQ Machines Christmas Star 5: Case Luggage

Case Luggage Website

Our fifth PDQ Machines’ Christmas Star is Case Luggage – selling the world’s finest luggage.

It’s our last festive post to highlight PDQ Machines clients who were complimentary about our credit card machines and customer service.

And in the spirit of Christmas (and ‘quid pro quo’) we’re saying ‘thank you’ by recommending a product or service that we think would make a great pressie for family or friends.

Sonia Levien-Samuels of Case Luggage told us:

“Great service, best PDQ company I have ever dealt with, so professional and helpful, with the latest equipment. Great doing business with them”

Thanks Sonia!

Case Luggage have a magnitude of great pressie ideas from a few pounds upwards. We were drawn to their Stocking Fillers and the Tommy Hilfiger Hampton leather Credit Card holder. Well we would be, wouldn’t we?

PDQ Machines Christmas Star 4: GillanGladRag

GillianGladRag Christmas Gift Guide

Our fourth PDQ Machines Christmas Star is GillianGladRag based in Dorking, Surrey and ‘suppliers of fluffy goods to the cognoscenti’!

Our Christmas Stars posts highlight PDQ Machines clients who said something nice about our credit card machines and customer service recently. And in the spirit of Christmas (and ‘quid pro quo’) we’re saying ‘thank you’ by recommending a product or service that we think would make a great pressie for family or friends.

Here’s what Gillian Harris of Gillian Glad Rag said about us:

“The team at PDQ is always really helpful and it’s great knowing that if you have any problems they are always on the end of the phone waiting to help you sort them out!

There are always glitches when you first set up the machines somewhere, but they are always able to sort them out as fast as possible, which is really important when there’s a lot of time and money invested in your setup. I would definitely recommend – reasonably priced and a great service :-)

Gillian Glagrag have some excellent ideas for presents with their Christmas Gift Guide and we were drawn to their Felting Bag Kit – Magnificent Millicent (just don’t ask us why!). We think it could be the perfect gift for any committed crafters in your life:

PDQ Machines Christmas Stars 3: FFX Tools

FFX Tools Christmas Gifts

The third PDQ Machines Christmas Star is FFX Tools, ‘suppliers of high quality tools, fixings and building supplies at market leading prices’.

Our Christmas Stars posts highlight PDQ Machines clients who said something nice about our credit card machines and customer service recently. Fittingly, in the spirit of Christmas (and ‘quid pro quo’) we’re recommending a product or service that we think would make a great Xmas pressie for family or friends.

Here’s what FFX Tools Sales and Operations Manager Adrian Walker said about us:

“Just wanted to drop you a line to say ‘Thank you’ to you and the team. Yet again you exceeded our expectations with the level of service you provided. Although it was only two terminals this time we still received them the very next day and they were ready to use as soon as they arrived.

This reinforces our intention to use your company for our National tradeshow in the New Year.”

Thanks Adrian!

FFX Tools have made our job really easy with their festive FFXmas Christmas Gift Shop which stocks some brilliant gifts under £50.

Their hi-tech LED Lenser Head Lamp for £18.95 caught our eye. We reckon this kind of headgear would be an equally perfect stocking filler for the committed DIY-er or enthusiastic DJ in your life!

PDQ Machines Christmas Stars 2: Confetti Box

Confetti Box Accessories

In the second of our series of PDQ Machines Christmas Stars, another of our clients, Manchester-based wedding shop, Confetti Box, had some nice words to say about our credit card machines and our customer service. And in the Spirit of Christmas we return the favour.

Here’s what Maria from confettibox.com said about us:

“I have used the PDQ machines and I cannot highly recommend them enough for their service and patience with me have been wonderful… even supplying me with a machine at such short notice, just before a huge exhibition was fantastic.”

The ‘dropping-off-and-collection’ of the machine is just another part of their service which is also really good.”

Now as Confetti Box are a wedding shop it’s a bit trickier to recommend a present from their website as you may not know anyone that’s getting married next year.

However, you could take a look at the tiaras on their Accessories page, and their collection of rogue tiaras from Liza which consist of real aurora borealis crystals, swarovski crystal and sea pearls.

Now these could be ideal for any princesses in your life, and the perfect accompaniment to that Blu-Ray version of “Sing-A-Long Frozen” that we’re certain will be in many Princess Anna or Princess Elsa’s Christmas stockings…

Our Christmas Star No 1 was Zaini Hats.

PDQ Machines Christmas Stars 1: Zaini Hats

Zaini Hats Beanies Xmas 2014 2

At this special time of the year it’s better to give than receive. So when some PDQ Machine customers told us some very nice things about our credit card machines and our service, we thought the most festive thing to do was to tell you about their business, their website, and signpost you to a smashing Christmas gift.

Here’s what Miranda Harper of Zaini.com said about us:

‘I have been using PDQ Machines since I launched my business in 2010 and have never had any issues with taking payment. Other traders around me use their Paypal or Intuit machines linked to their phones, which fail all the time and they simply are not reliable.

I have never missed a payment thanks to PDQ Machines and we travel the country at events from the Scottish Highlands to a busy event in London – PDQ Machines stands the test. Highly recommended for all sizes of business”.

Try a handmade Zaini beanie this Xmas!

Zaini hats were launched when owner Miranda Harper could not find a comfy, colourful and stylish enough beanie hat when she was on a winter holiday…

Every Zaini beanie is designed in Scotland and they’re all handmade with attention to detail in every way. So when you buy a beanie from Zaini you’re supporting a British (and Scottish!) business, staying warm this increasingly chilly winter and making a fashion statement too.

And if you’re not sure which beanie your friends or loved ones would like, why not get them a  Zaini Gift Card?
