About Us

It was through a child-like obsession for Scalextric that Jadlam Racing Models was born. You might call us overgrown kids, but we've lost countless evenings racing on our meticulously constructed track, desperately trying to shave off that extra tenth of a second. It's our favourite hobby, and we think it should be yours, which is why we want to give you the opportunity build your own collection without breaking the bank.

We opened our Jadlam Racing Models eBay shop in 2005 in a small space above a Bicycle shop in Glastonbury, Somerset. We kept our prices low by splitting large Scalextric sets into custom kits, and by listening to the discerning demands of our customers.

During our second year of trading we won eBay's coveted ''Fastest Growing UK Business'' award. Delighted with our achievements, we expanded our premises and also expanded our product base, by offering the latest from Hornby, Brio and Britain's Die Cast Models.

In April 2008, with the help of our loyal and ever-increasing customer base, we moved our whole operation a few miles down the road to its current home in the idyllic city of Wells. The extra space in our new headquarters allowed us to stock Airfix, Corgi, Sylvanian Families, Meccano and Playmobil toys.

Later in 2008, we also launched jadlamracingmodels.com and started selling through Amazon, but our eBay Store continued from strength to strength: by 2009, we achieved No.1 Status on ebay for Toys and Games sold. Not bad for a child-like obsession.

We currently trade on eBay, Amazon and through our Website, jadlamracingmodels.com. Since our humble beginnings in 2005, we have supplied toys all over the world, we have kept our customers happy - over 310,000 positive feedbacks on eBay are a testament to this. We've been welcoming some customers back again and again since the day we opened, so we must be doing something right.

Of course, we appreciate that we are nothing without you, the customer, and nothing is more important to us than your satisfaction. You can buy from us with confidence, safe in the knowledge that you will receive a square deal from an internationally renowned retailer. And remember - if you have any queries at all, we are always just an email or a phone call away.
