Customer feedback

I was searching for an older tour book (I was having a hard time finding it locally), and found it at SKIVIMPORT while doing an online search.
There was great communication and service.
And the product was in great condition as described.
I would definitely buy from this company again.
Thank you.

Just wanted to send a quick note to thank you for your excellent service. I received my Megadeth uncut picture disc LP today and it is absolutely fabulous. It came promptly and in perfect condition. To have something so precious safely delivered from one end of the world to the other is a credit to the care that you take.
I nowdon't have to travel to the ends of the earth to get great service and great prices, just browse your website.
Cheers from one of your very happy customers.

SKIVIMPORT - for the serious record collector

During the summer of 2009
Skivimport closed down the
shop in Karlskoga, Sweden.

Skivimport Heavy Metal Store was
located in the heart of Karlskoga
and was open for eight years
between 2001 and 2009.

We had a lot lot of fun in the shop
over the years and got to meet a
lot of nice people.

Thanks to everybody
who paid us a visit!

The Shop was housed in the same
building as Kungsteatern in Karlskoga.
A lot of people who were passing
through the town, stopped by and
visited our store since Karlskoga is
located right between Stockholm
(the capital of Sweden) and Oslo
(the capital of Norway).

A lot of people praised the store.
The customers really appreciated
our good service and great stock.
