This was nothing but a perfect retail experience. Being in Alice Springs we're used to getting either overcharged or under cared for. After my first phone call with Exakt, Jason politely said he was with a customer and would call back in 10 minutes. I'd had this before in Alice and never had the return call - alas, 9 minutes later Jason was on the line. Jason and I discussed my needs and 20 minutes later I had a quote. I settled the account that afternoon and the products were on the truck the very next day. I received the goods, all in order in a shorter time frame than what I would have received the quote, let alone goods normally. Go with these guys if you want someone that cares for about having a point of difference - being good customer service and responsiveness.
