Hi Rich,

Thanks for the follow up! Let me tell you that I am impressed with you (your) customer service! I really like how you follow up and keep me updated, this is not normal these days. I really am impressed.

I think your set up looks good and very easy to use, maybe there is an app or something that you can apply to keep dumbies like me from keeping too many boxes checked . I yelled at the wife about letting me keep all of the boxes checked after showing her the options and she said do you still want that detector so I stopped yelling LOL (Joking).

Once again, thanks for the updates and great communication. I will definitely be giving you great reviews. I would give you even better if it was here today LOL (excited to get started).

Have a great day!
Sincerely Pat - 1/16

You guys are awesome!! Thank you so much!! Can't believe I hit a 10" seated dime my first day out with this monster!! At a place that has been absolutely hammered by detectorists!! Couldn't be happier, and can't believe you guys got it to me so quickly. So glad I heard about you guys on YouTube. Can't stand a certain Florida company, that has consistently let me down time after time. You'll be hearing from me again for sure. And I'll continue to tell other MDers about you guys. Thanks again for hooking my buddy and I up with this beautiful coils. Cheers, and Happy Holidays.

Thank You - 11/15


Just a quick note to thank you fro the Awesome service. I was skeptical that you had the Treasure Products Vibra Tector 730 in stock. The manufacturers website showed out of stock which began my search. I called several online vendors who claimed to have the unit in stock but when called did not. I called your organization when your website showed 2 in stock. I called and Sure enough you had them in stock. I placed my order online and in a very short time was notified it shipped. I received the unit well packaged and within 3 days of ordering. I bought this unit to help locate Items that get dropped in the water at a lake house. I have already located a lost watch in Zero Visibility.

Thank you very much

My first order -

To whom it may concern.thank you for a prompt and accurate delivery. Your Web site is very user friendly and your product choices are top shelf. I requested a tracking number and received it promptly. I was informed that the coil I ordered was out of stock but you had one shipped from your wholesale store. In this day and age it's very pleasing to receive outstanding customer service. (***** +) top shelf .

Sincerely Scott P - WA - 1/15

Thank you again, Ron - Mukwonago, WI - 2/13

hi Rich,

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.

I 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.

Darren - Australia - 1/13


thank 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 MD forum:
"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!

Thanks 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

Kieran:-) AU - 8/12

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.

Brent K - APO AE - 7/12

Found your site on Ebay. Site is very easy to navigate and your prices are very reasonable. Looking forward to receiving my latest purchase to my hunting arsnel. Thank you in advance for making this transaction so easy !

Doug also known as Dugday - 8/11

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 Metal Detectors!

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.

Mark D. - OH - 7/11

Hey Rich , i just wanted to let you know that the Sand Shark just got here, and to thankyou once again for your great service and speedy shipping .You have earned a customer for life.

Thank's again,
Paul L - Wareham, MA - 6/11

Incredible Service!

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!

Brent - 6/11

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 service!


Ethan K - Mechanicstown, OH - 5/11

Hi Rich , i got it at 9:45 this morning (amazing) , thankyou so much for everything . my daughter will love the pouch.

I will be calling you in a couple of weeks to order a sandshark. thank's again.

Paul L - Wareham, MA - 4/11

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 period.
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.

Steveo - upstate NY - 2/11

Dear Colonial Metal Detectors

Just wanted you to know how pleased I am with my whole purchase experience recently.
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


Just 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.

Although the 250 is a "beginners' tool, it is a huge step up from the Bounty Hunter we were using.

Jeff - IL - 6/10


Hi Rich

Thank you for the outstanding service and nice conversation with you today 6-4-2010
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

Hello Rich,

Thanks 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 that.

I wanted to respond to your email and to Thank You for being in the business
that you are in. Integrity rates pretty high with me and when you find
someone who has it, it's easy to recognize.
