Smye-Rumsby Ltd

Smye-Rumsby has been outstanding. There ability to listen to our requirements has stood them apart from many other suppliers. The planning process was detailed which I found very reassuring. I would not hesitate to recommend Smye-Rumsby for their quality of service and knowledge about their industry


Smye-Rumsby Ltd

The range and clarity of the radios are excellent, which is crucial: if people don’t think the message will reach the intended recipient then they won’t be used. The fact that all staff are using the radios on a regular basis demonstrates the effectiveness of the system. So far, we have found the radios to be more reliable than mobile phones in many instances. The ability to switch from the main network to a radio-to-radio channel adds a reliable back-up option for teams to stay in contact with each other, even if they are in a signal ‘black spot.’ Smye-Rumsby have provided an excellent service throughout the process, in particular, allowing us to demo the radios over a couple of weeks to test their effectiveness and range across the whole farm

Thank you for your servicing support since 2013. As we run 32 CB radios via a base station, it is essential that we use a local company who can service and repair our radios quickly and efficiently without additional charges. New parts are competitively priced and our radios always arrive correctly programmed and well maintained. The farming environment dictates the need for efficient communication between staff at all times. With over 50 company vehicles it is the only way we can communicate safely whilst driving and operating equipment. Smye-Rumsby Ltd offer a good repair service with experienced engineers on-hand at all times if advice is required. We currently have an analogue system but Mike Syrett, our Account Manager at Smye-Rumsby, is helping us migrate to digital radios by supplying dual-band equipment. Mike has also offered us invaluable advice regarding coverage, and has supplied us with digital handsets to explore future requirements for improving coverage and modernising equipment. For any company looking for a radio communications solution, I would not hesitate to recommend Smye-Rumsby Ltd, Dover.
