i just picked my order, WOW, hassle free, fast and the best packing
ive seen for a while :)
Thanks mate, very happy.
I just put a post up in a thread on a forum over here but its awaiting
approval from a mod so i will copy and paste, you have a nice following
on this forum, i wrote the following :
I just received my order from Rich, after a bit of back and forth banter
on recommendations etc and some of it was on a Sunday ;) i ordered on
the 10th their time, it was shipped same day and i just picked it up
from the post office on the 15th.
Excellent packaging, probably the best ive experienced actually, the
2 sets of Gray Ghosts were surrounded with bubble wrap and in separate
boxes and the Stealth Classic scoop was packaged nicely with plenty
of packing to fill the voids.
would'nt hesitate purchasing from Rich again, he gave me a discount
on the shipping as he did in some of the posts above and also discounted
the second set of headphones.

you for the great service! I received my Lesche Sampson and the E-Trac
lower shaft today. I posted the following in a thread over on the Friendly
"I just got mine today from Rich at Colonial Metal Detectors (one
of the forum sponsors). I have to say that the process of ordering from
Rich was absolutely one of the best online purchases I have ever made.
I received an email as soon as the order was placed then I got one shortly
after that saying that my package had been shipped along with tracking
number and clickable link. Package arrived ASAP and I could not be more
thrilled with his service!
again Rich! People like you make online purchasing extremely comforting...

I wanted you to know I got your shipment just as you said I would. I
know you even went out of your way to get my X-Terra-705 to me when
I needed it. I didnt know much about detectors at the time I ordered
this one from you and you were very helpful and informative. I have
recommended you to many other people because of your above and beyond
good service. I have found a few good finds but most of all I've had
alot of fun doing it. Thank You

Words cannot describe how much I want to thank you. It was not necessary
to refund me $$ for shipping costs on one order and then another $$
for my Blisstool order. You and your company continue to reinforce what
customer service is all about! I have such a high degree of respect
for your company that I regularly recommend your business to others
who are thinking about getting in to the great hobby of metal detecting.
You have found a customer for life! Thank you once again.

After an exhaustive amount of research I decided to order a Fisher F2
for my first metal detector. Looking for the best deal I called numerous
dealers and found their prices to be quite competitive with each other.
One dealer had the entire package however, and that was Rich at Colonial
First and foremost, Rich was a great guy to talk to and answered every
question I had. This meant a great deal to me as a beginner. I must
have called him 5 times before I even ordered the detector and he was
always very personable and helpful. When It came time to order he set
me up with a Fisher F2 package that no other dealer could touch!
I ordered the detector late on a Tuesday evening and received it on
Friday! Just in time for me to give the machine a thorough workout on
Saturday. Everything was packaged wonderfully with plenty of bubble
wrap to protect the contents.
Rich is a true professional and runs his business in the exact same
manner. He gets my highest recommendation.

Hey Rich , i just wanted to let you know that the Sand Shark just got

I just want to thank you for the incredible service your company provides.
I am stationed overseas and it usually takes a while for items to be shipped
here. But your company must have its own postal system because I have
ordered 4 times from y'all now and every single time your products show
up at my door step faster than any other business I have ordered from!
Your products & prices are very competitive and you offer quality
items. Please praise everybody that works there because they deserve it!
Thank you once again!
I wanted you to know I received my order today and everything arrived
in good shape. This is my first metal detector (I went metal detecting
with a friend a long time ago and am just now getting my own detector)
and everything went smoothly. I followed the directions to set up my detector,
went outside in my back yard and ground balanced the machine. After only
a couple of sweeps I had a target which turned out to be a penny about
4 inches in the ground! I was able to play around for a little under an
hour before a big storm forced me inside, but in that hour I found a nickle,
another penny (buried at about 10 inches) and a set of keys (to what,
I do not know)! I also found some trash, the most impressive of which
was a small piece of rusty wire buried over 12" in the ground. I
am very pleased with my Vaquero! Thank you for the fast and trouble free
K - Mechanicstown, OH - 5/11

Quentin C - Mckenzie, TN - 4/11
I called and talked to Rich about a couple items and then placed an order.
Rich was very professional and a pleasure to deal with.
The shipping was very fast and was packed so no harm would come to them
during shipping. He even called me to make sure that I received my order
" great customer service" Something your not going to find at
most so called super stores. Some of the best prices that I found around
You can bet that when I need any M D stuff I'll be giving Rich at Colonial
M D a call.......
Thank you for the OUTSTANDING service Rich.

them in the mail today, Monday. I want to thank you for the way my order
was processed and received with lighting speed. I will keep you in mind

Thank You - Jerry L -NC 8/10
Colonial Metal Detectors,
Just wanted you to know how pleased I am with my whole purchase experience
First, Rich sent a prompt and friendly reply to my questions on getting
the right tool for the job. It was clear his concern was for me to have
the information needed to choose exactly the right product. Just a few
days later I have a carefully packed box thats traveled 3000 miles with
my MD goodies inside. Fantastic, time to go hunting! You guys are GREAT
In the past, I was lured into a metal detectors 'superstore' operation
online because they advertise everywhere, have a flashy web site, and
appear to be best on prices. Well... their experts turned out to be
salesmen that knew less about the product (Fisher F70) than I did! When
I add up all the time I spent with them to actually get the product
I wanted in my hands and service I deserved , it turns out they're not
such a good deal after all.
Thank You - I'll be back - Robert Nordmeyer - WA - 6/10
wanted to let you know that my wife and I love the new detector. I appreciate
the time you took with me on the phone last week, and the advise and
suggestions that you gave me. The 250 does seem like a very solidly
built instrument, and combining that with the Propointer, we're finding
targets and digging them up in no time flat.
the 250 is a "beginners' tool, it is a huge step up from the Bounty
Hunter we were using.
Jeff - IL - 6/10
Thank you for the outstanding service and nice conversation with you today
and rest assured that I will try my best to give you as much or all of
my bussiness in the future.
Ernie K, Worcester, Ma - 6/10
much for the update. It's funny how a simple email can show that you
have concern and commitment both to and for the client. I really appreciate
I wanted to respond to your email and to Thank You for being in the
that you are in. Integrity rates pretty high with me and when you find
someone who has it, it's easy to recognize.
Chuck G - NH - 5/10
i just wanted to commend your business for quick service, i placed my
order this morning and it has already shipped! Not too many businesses

all for all of my metal detecting needs from now on!

all I want to say is thankyou! It was above and beyond what I was expecting
the way you handled my complaint by sending me a new unit and refunding
my postage on the package I sent back to you. If I need anything I'll
definitely come back to you and I'll be telling people about your business.
