“Maxy Have You Got My Prints?”

published 04/01/2004

Are There Any?

Too Many To Mention Here - See Below.

My hubby and I didn't have luxuries at our wedding simply because we couldn't afford them.  It was known that whoever turned up with a camera would show us the photograph's after and we would then decide if we wanted any copies. This was mainly going to be between my parents and my hubby's...

Well the staff are ok

everything else

This is a very touchy subject with me but I am sure you have already noticed that I am not a fan of this store as I have given it the lowest rating I have ever given any product so far in my reviews. From the outside it looks clean, inviting and professional with lots to offer. The inside is very...

Friendly - sometimes

Lost prints, overcharging, lying.

I worked at a few Max Speilmann shops, and the odd Klick (owned by the same company and run the same) over eight months, and there are a few things I've noticed during my time there that would be helpful to potential customers. - Staff are penalised for accepting 6x4 prints and will do anything...

Just been to Max Spielmann in Beeston Nottingham 10.8.07. Charged 14p per photo (438 of them) when the window price is 5p per photo for 200+. Manageress said this did not come into force until 15th August 2007. Then why is it in the window and leaflets on the counter? Manageress very rude, said she felt like slapping customers round the face. Given full refund but told I could not have photos until the Thursday, then I would get the reduced price. Photos had been printed already, so I told them I would leave them and go to Boots for 6p each. Beware Max Spielmann they seem to say and charge what prices they like. Go somewhere reputable like Boots!

I bought one of the disposable cameras from max spielman and used the whole film on my new baby. I then dropped the camera in to be developed. on collection I was told the processing had failed ( which being photo's of a really special time that I cant get back I was a bit upset and disapointed) I was then told I would have to pay 1.99 processing charge. I am absolutly discusted and will not be using max spielman again

Visited Max Spielman photo shop in Halifax today with 3 disposable cameras with processing pre-paid. Asked if i could pay extra for a 1 hour service and was told that it is their busiest time of year and the photos would take exactly 1 week. The sales assistant was most unhelpful and i did wonder if i had gone i with 3 films for developing to be paid for if they would have given me the one hour service.

I have just phoned there 0870 number and was told ALL there branch numbers are ex directory. I then looked up the 0870 number and find out its a PREMIUM RATE SERVICE !!! All they do is pass you through to the branch while charging you at the premium rate. I did like there service but now feel i am being ripped off again. I shall now take my film to an alternative proccessor. Barry Birmingham 07595281658

i went in a max spielmann shop to see about getting some passport photos done for me and my husband and was told it was £6.00 each for 8 photos so that would of been £12 for 16 photos when we only needed 4. You should be able to just buy the amount you want and it should not cost this much just for a picture not much bigger than a stamp!!

I owned a photographic studio and used the same Fuji nps 35mm &120 roll films. I took a roll of 36 on 35mmm film of my grandaughter and took it in Max Spiemanns new shop in our town for processing, When i got the film back all the prints had a bright blue cast on them. I had never had a result like that I was using the same lights with a white background and settings for high key shots. I returned them to the shop and said they were no good I waited 3 months the manager told me it was my fault not theirs. 1 of the negs I had printed to 20x16 by our normal printer THEY SUPPLIED A PERFECT PRINT IN 4 DAYS. I would never go there again

I bought a digital photo frame from the Spielmann shop in Moreton (Wirral). It was faulty and the owner said he would return my £49.99 to my debit card. He looked like he did but pulled a fast one on me. The money never went on back in my account!!!! He has now gone bust and probably owes more people than me money. So watch out when you buy anything from them. I have a feeling they are a Franchise type of business???

Fantastic helpfull service and advise

none I can think of

Recently we decided to get married after my girlfriend lost her job so our budget was highly squeezed but we agreed it was time as we had been together for 6 years and have a small 2yr old boy. One of the things we cut back on was a pro photographer and instead we got my brother to take the pics...

i've recently had 5 digital disc's developed which was a total of 1236 pictures costing me £61.80. my mother collected these photos for me but when it came to me putting them into the album all the pictures were mixed up, i mean it looked like someone had thrown them in a pile, mixed them up and put them in any pack!! they we're not willing to do anything about it so i now have so sort out them all in order one by one which, i estimate will take me hours!!! if only they had told me this beforehand then each disc could have been processed through individually. since this i've heard several negative reports for max spielman!!

I had a package with Max Spielman for my wedding day. It was 10 disposable cameras and processing and was a very good deal. However when I took them to be processed Max Spielman lost three of the cameras. The only compensation they were willing to offer for the loss of photos from the most special day of my life was a free disposable camera!!!

“Max Spielmann Review”

published 06/09/2006

Fast Service, can send photos for free by post

not close to my town, so i can not pop in at luch ...

Max Spielmann are quite good if you are willing to wait a few days for photos to be developed. I always used to get my photos developed by them, and was never disapointed by the service and quality. You would be given a free envelop to send them off in, and you'd enclose a cheque. The photos...
