    do they cause much damage of a vinyl?

    got brand new vinyl delivered today of chemical and the sleeve has a muddy tyre print across it! then when i took a closer look at the vinyl it has the same print on it.

    Would u only send it back if it skips/sounds funny? or would u send it back complaining of visible damage?

    or just allow it if it plays fine!? its annoying me but cant be arsed to pay the postage to get it back to them etc...

    either way i would complain, there is no way a company should be sending out a vinyl in this condition unless thats the way it was described

    whoa! it survived being run over! pretty impressive!

    i'd be tempted to send it back and get another one anyway! chemical should be cool about it!

    they probably noticed the mark but sent it anyway, maybe it was the last one left.
    u dont want them to have a note on ur account saying this guy accepts rejects. (i doubt they do that, but still)

    if u ever wanna sell it and there was 2 on discogs, your one and one without a tyre print on it, i know which one i'd purchase!

    Yeah i reckon i will. to be fair its not mentally bad but theres definately a mark on it.. gonna give it a spin once im home and see. I have emailed them aswell just to make sure they have a replacement. Well annoying though. had this before from chemical.

    Went into the actual shop once when visiting a mate in bristol. Bought some tunes but couldnt test them till i got home (Gatwick)! turned out one of the tunes skipped on the drop. so called them and i couldnt get it swapped because i bought it in the shop! So had to send it to my mate who then had to swap it in the shop and send the copy back to me! Cost a fortune! lol

    not impressed tbh

    You wouldn't pay full price for a lawn mower, cat or washing machine that's been run over, so why pay for traffic accident vinyl?

    i had a record from there once, had what looked like a white fleck from the sleeve stuck halfway through the tune. I never sent it back as it plays fine and even after all these plays its still there.

    if it played ok i wouldnt give a shit really, unless it was really sick artwork.. I would rather have the tune with a muddy sleeve than not have it for a few days just to have it back again playing the same.. Especially if i was excited for it

    The sleeve didnt bother me really mate was the vinyl with the imprint of a tyre on it that did! to be fair 9 quid is alot of money for a one sided tune! and to get it knowing someone has run it over with something is a bit shit. So i guess its down to me as a customer to complain and get it sorted.

    A fleck or imperfection made out of an unkown white substance
