Are Radiozing going under?

Post by Otter » 22 Mar 2018, 23:56

Any attempt to 'phone them and the phone cuts off immediately. Their ebay shop has no CBs for sale at all. Does anyone have any information?

There is no such thing as a Fidelity 1000 which is too good to scrap.

The market for new radio stuff must be rather small these days, and there are quite a few people trying to make a living at it. So you never know.

Be sad to hear if they go. Its just frustrating that the decent ones go under whilst others like n0cand0 survive.

I've been contemplating it , but I'd need to raise my prices above RTIs in order to make any money I think . £2000 for a 360FM anyone ? :)

I've heard a rumour that it's that "Safety Site's" ebay super-bargains that have been the straw that broke the camel's back ;)

It will be a shame if they are gone, they were a good supplier and genuinely nice people. The problem is there are no new exiting radios on the market at the moment just the same old rigs from five years ago! I bet it's hard to make a living from C.B. accessories. I hope they're still in business but it's not sounding too good.

Looking at their accounts, they're solvent and still current - last accounts companies house have dated 2016 and before. There is one Director and he's the major shareholder but he's in his late 60s - so maybe taking retirement? Certainly nothing showing as bad I can find - so possibly they're just taking it easy prior to closing up? The website is dated new year 2018 - and the stock on Ebay appears to be either small cheap bin stock, or very big items that for what they are appear to be manufacturer held stock?

Seems a shame if they have flogged off the stock and are closing down?

They have a few things still listed on ebay, but it all appears to have been listed quite a while ago.
