Yeps I found that - After I'd bought the van!

It could be that my quickest best bet is getting a chargeback on my debit card.

That scummer sold my brother a Peugeot 405 from a second hand dealer just outside Ringshall. Fake RAC approved which turned out to be death trap. when we went to get the money back his "friends" turned up when my bro took his car keys after an argument. All bluff and we got the money back standing our ground, the guy is a complete prick and relies on intimidation and people not knowing the law. god know's how many people he has ripped off but he was driving a 2012 RangeRover Sport at the time, just over a year old so not cheap. Suspect he just buys at auction and flips them on the forecourt with no checks or work done. yes my brother was a spastic for buying it in the first place but he has always been a bit dim

If money’s handy and your not struggling I’d be taking the van down to his house in reverse threw his living room window , obv won’t get your cash back but would leave a happy man

I don't live far and usually pass regularly but my work has been the other direction recently, although I drove through Gt. Missenden yesterday but forgot to take a look at their premises, might pop in next time with a "mechanical query" and see what they're like.

As nice as anything until you have a problem which they take as a personal insult

I always try and avoid buying from a trader as they are only interested in making a profit

What a strange notion :?

Why would anyone in business not be out to make a profit :?: It's what pays the bills, puts food on the table, and a roof over the head of the family. This is the world of commerce as we know it :P

It is possible to both make a profit, and look after your customers :D

A businessman once won the lotto and his friends asked what he was going to do with it :?: He said he was going to keep working till it was all gone :roll:
