The Gold Mining Centre - Adelaide
« on: January 16, 2012, 19:59 »
I rang Phil from the Gold Mining Centre on a Saturday afternoon, wanting another pro-pointer to use for the following day.  I wasn't expecting to get one on such short notice, but Phil came through with the goods.  I drove out to St Agnes to pick it up - $150 cash with an Australian local warranty.  And Phil will fix the busted switches on broken Pro-pointers for about $50.  (though don't expect warranty work from him on stuff that wasn't bought from him or his resellers)

I walked in not knowing a thing about Garrett detectors and came away quite impressed with the AT-Pro and the new AT-Gold.  He showed me the difference in the the versions of the AT-Gold and the new one is much better with the ground balance issue.

I'm Actually now thinking of adding an AT-Pro to my collection.

Great to hear mate. Phil is a very good guy to deal with & very upfront. Beware though, the AT Pro International is very addictive. Once you start to pluck out the coins it will have you hooked on it.

I bought a 4.5" sniper coil from Phil on Friday the 27th, It played up that night with a dodgey plug end, called in today and left with an exhange unit straight away! :) Very happy with the service and knowledge, this time and for all previous dealings.

Have bought stuff from GMC and not had any trouble, most helpfull, as well as next day delivery (even better) to country SA area. Only thing I reckon that needs improving is the web site.

I got my at pro from GMC. He had them on backorder from the US.  But it took him 1 day to get it to me in NSW when he got it..
He sent me the connote via email, I turned up to work 7:30am the next day it was delivered before 8am. 
Phil's great to deal with, always got back..

Bought a Pro pointer, Sniper coils and Edge digger from Phil a couple of days before Xmas.

Prices were good, he's easy to deal with and a good source of info.

Just got my new AT-PRO from Phil and could not be happier with the transaction. Phil was very helpful and obliging. I am new to Tasmania (Hobart) and had come to expect delays in shipping but the speed of this delivery took my breath away - 2 business days... way ahead of my expectations.

Bought my ace 250 from Phil. Couldn't be more helpful back then. So now I've bought a pro pointer and an AT PRO from him. Ordered on Thursday lunch and received on Monday. Couldn't ask for more than that. On top off the sale you get good info from him. Someone i will by from again.
