This is a review about quad skates. I have bought a few items over the past few years for me, my partner and now my growing teenage kids who are into skating big time. The service I have received every single time whether it's an email phone call or WhatsApp chat is amazing. Steve and Lee know their products really well and recommendations time and time again always hit the mark...no over selling and always trying to save a few £ here and there which is appreciated. This is now the fourth pair of skates I have purchased and true to form, perfect fitting, perfect build and colour choice. This time the skates were delivered within 3 days so I am over the moon to be skating this August bank holiday in my new skates. If you're reading this and wondered who or where to buy skates, dont look any further... Quad skates is the only place I will buy from. I love the fact this is a family run, independent skate shop. Not a high street chain or mail order with no customer service. Quad skates has always given me the best advice, the best price and now, the fastest delivery possible. This is not a paid review and no one has asked me to write this. I wanted to share my experience of using quad skates for the past 4 years and recommend you do too! Emille and family @ Brighton
I've been looking for a decent pair of skates for a couple of months now, I had Bauers when I was younger, so I know the quality is good. A lot has changed since then, as in options and quality. I spoke to Lee, who was very helpful and gave me some great advice and helped me make the correct choice for what I needed, just waiting for them to arrive so I can take them for a spin. I would highly recommended this company, very friendly and helpful A* Keep up the good work.
The quality of the skates colour choice and service from Lee at quad skates is exceptional. I have already recommended to my friends to only buy from here and will be returning to buy more skates for the kids soon. If only ALL online shops offered this exceptional level of service. Old fashioned shop feel with good quality advice and the best prices available. Don’t even think twice about buying your skates from these guys - there is nothing else like it anywhere else.
not new to skatgin and know bauer is the only skate for me. shopped around for the best price/spec/colours and came up trumps wiht these guys. recievd the skates no problem and way better than i thort. easily the best built skates ive had in years and colour choices way batter than i expected. for otther skaters out there shopping around these guys are the real deal and by far and wide better than all other skate shops i have been to and tried on line. best price, best service and best build skates i have ever used. as my name says, i dont go to any other skate shop now and only recommend these guys at quad-skates
went to go buy a pair of the xls bauers and wasnt sure on sizing. was about a 90 minunte drive but well worth the journey and trying them on saved me return postage. I bought a size 11 but wear a 10.5 shoe. Advice from Lee at QuadSkates was top notch and highly recommend these guys for their knowledge, skating history and available stock to go collect and try on.
I want to make this clear - no one asked me for this review and I dont usually write these things. Not going in to details about what happened or why - I was let down badly by another store - no names but they should be ashamed of themselves. I called Quad Skates on the off chance they could supply the size and mods I needed before my partners birthday - low and behold - they had them in stock and to speed up shipping time, I drove 120 miles to go and pick them up. I have never seen a skate shop like this and know these guys are the real deal. Such a shame oliver let me down (haa haa) and lied to me, twice. If youre going to shop anywhere try these guys first. Service and quality is second to none - the skates are a perfect fit, colour choices are like no other and MUCH cheaper than I was originally quoted. Whats not to like, speed of service, colour range, stock availability and a free arcade machine in the shop. There is no other skate shop like this in the UK ... AND THEY MAKE THEIR OWN WHEELS at their warehouse - these guys are next level and huge thanks to Lee for sorting me out = totally appreciated and will be sending all my skater friends your way.
After years (I mean years and years) away from skating started again with the kids. These looked like a great pair and I wasn't disappointed. Good quality build, good price and arrived when they said they would. Very happy with the skates and service from the team.
Brought a pair of xls from quadskates based on best price online and best advice. thanks to Steve who talked me through the whole process and after calling around a few places, had the best knowledge out of all of them - also remembered old bauer turbos (rip) and his old shop called Buddies in Pitzhanger Lane in 1980s - a real pleasure to speak to this chap again and so happy to remember all the good times skating around Ealing/Perivale. If ure unsure about buying skates online - give these guys a call - far superior knowledge and best price online - far better than other so called wanna be pretend "skate shops" who sell heelys inline skateboards - these guys have been selling quads for a very long time (40+ years), verified from a very old, reborn skater. 11/10 stars, if that's possible?
Saved £30 buying these from QuadSkates so really happy with the money saved and really good quality build. Service excelletnt from Steve and happy to say they going to last a long time unlike my Bauer Turbos which are now destined for the bin :(
skates arrived on time and brand new. not a fan of the fluro colours but when you wear them you hardly see the green. got them with black wheels and black trucks which looks awesome and well worth spending £10 on the improved bearings. my skates now fly along with such little effort. spent a long time shopping around and found these to be the best price and value online cant fault their service.
