The goal of Gert Strand AB is to sell the best products available on a worldwide basis, while giving high-quality service.
We will handle all complaints and bring them to a satisfactory conclusion. If we ever get complaints from any public consumer organization, we will follow their recommendations, in every country.
All items are kept in stock 99% of the time. When we receive your order, we usually pack it within 24 hours, and also send you an e-mail giving shipment details. If you have a very large order, we pack and ship first, then send the e-mail notification. Thus, on large orders, there may be a brief delay of e-mail.
Credit card payment is handled by 3rd party specialized companies with the highest security. Gert Strand AB does not have access to your credit card number. All payments are made on secure servers. Incidentally, our policy is to never sell or give away any information about our customers.
Our founder, Gert Strand, personally guarantees the quality of our products. If you have business associates in Sweden you can ask them. Gert Strand has gone from being the smallest essence producer to the largest - in the world's strongest competition. All this is based on know-how, a quality idea and vision, and over 27 years of experience.
Anybody can set up a Web site, try to collect your money, then never send you anything. You often do not know this because many such sites look professional. If you do not know much about them, get more details before you place an order. Is there a physical address for their office? Is there a real person, and is that person trustworthy? Is the company in the Yellow Pages? Who owns the Web site?
Are there any complaints about fraud at the company's local Better Business Bureau? Is the company's full address on the Web site, not hiding behind anonymous e-mail and a P.O. box address? Does it have its own domain name? For extra security, pay with your credit card, since credit card companies protect their customers. But pay only on a secure server (http:// changes to https://).
With Gert Strand AB, you have a company in Sweden, far away. Is it real? They claim to supply super quality for the last 27 years. Is there a way to check this?
Yes, there are many ways. First: common sense. We use 3rd party companies to secure online payment, affiliate payment etc. We would have been cut out a long time ago if we have done something wrong. And if we'd done something wrong, this would have given us a bad reputation with our banks, the affiliate payment service, credit card companies, etc.
