    Benji is that you?
  4. That was an expensive phone call, however could hve been more expensive if you needed to claim and the refused on the fact you didnt declare. I changed something minor on my last policy with a month to go and its cost me a oner
  5. This time next year Rodders
  6. Personally I hate texting but its heer to stay. Much rather have a chat
  7. Anything up to £15k inc the VAT. Im ok at the moment as I am just finishing one and have 2015 Highline sat waiting to be converted so end of July I will be looking again.
  8. If you come across any nice and I mean nice T5 Highlines for the right money drop me a PM
  9. Ive never understood quite why BCA treat customers like dog excrement. Any other company on any other sector would last 10 minutes.
  10. I used to use warranty wise back in the day. Biggest bunch of crunts going. Promise the world but in reality they squirm out of it usually stating wear and tear. Then send the already irate customer back to you. I had more trouble when adding warranty on than i ever do now. I don't offer warranty on my vans I stick strictly to the words of CRA 2015. I just explain that they are covered under consumer rights. I do offer 12 months on the camper conversion as they are new items newly installed. I don't have a card machine. I will take cash/cheque/bacs. Not had a complaint yet.
  11. By far and away making the change to get involved full time in the campers. I work longer hours for sure but I enjoy what I do, People seem genuinely interested in what I do, I get huge job satisfaction.
  12. Santander for Business, Various Personal & Mortgage. Been with them since they were Abbey National. No complains

    The only dodge was if I was going back to the car and there was a hottie walking past then I would walk past the 406 as if it wasn't mine.
  15. Hands up if you smoke around in an old shitter. Was just reminiscing about an 1999 406 HDI I had about 6 years or so ago. Took it in px and it stood me at the price of the 5 month tax disc that was in the window. Plan was to run it till it refused to go any further without spending a penny on repairs, never washed it, never locked it. I loved that car, it was so comfortable and went forever on £10. Mrs C hated it with a passion and im sure it was the talk of the neighbourhood for the wrong reasons. Was genuinely gutted when it finally died. The radiator sprung a leak, cracked a few eggs in to the expansion tank which seemed to keep it limping on for a few weeks. Had to carry many litres of water but the day finally came when it had to go. Scrap man crossed my palm with £150. Thats Bangernomics at its best. I do still have a soft spot for a shitter. I don't really have much interest in cars. My current smoker is a Caddy van, its a bit blinged for work purposes but certainly nothing fancy.
  16. Its adjusted via the right hand stalk. Tell him to read the manual.
  17. This is the other one I have just finished and it was collected yesterday, the customer spent all his budget on the interior. He wanted leather seats all round, top end bed and furniture, touch lights, night heater. It turned out really well. Its a LWB, that 40cm over the SWB makes a huge difference. Its coming back in the winter for all the exterior bling.
  18. It could be argued that the fault was not there st the point of sale.
  19. You are right about these vans holding the value. Cheap decent vans dont exist, I do give strong money. Experience had told me to avoid those bargains that do turn up more and again. If you want to get top money then you have have to go the extra mile. But people will pay it, last three campers I have done where pre sold and im in talks with a guy who is interested in my next one. There is plenty of profit left in them.
  20. The buckles slip between the cushions, and you dont feel any of the ribs. They are very comfortable Thanks guys. Really pleased with this one. Its being collected tomorrow and going straight to Wales for its first outing.
  21. Worlds fastest camper (Build) Well maybe not the fastest one ever done but its my personal best. Started it on the 16th of April and finished it around lunchtime today. I had the pop top roof fitted a few week previous to starting, as I had another van in I could not start this build. 13.5 working days of early starts which I kind of really like as I like to be home at a normal time. Its being collected on Saturday the customer is over the moon with it. But there is no rest for the wicked as I can now finish the customer supplied van I have been doing in between jobs. I will post some pics of that one when its done as he has really gone to town.
  22. Well seeing as they went and bought the new battery and no doubt got royally bummed without first contacting you you then sending you the bill I would be inclined to nip in straight in the bud and remind them of the process of dealing with faults by first giving you the chance to fix. Personally I wound politely explain a battery is a consumable item battery as they can tend to go without warning, and its just unfortunate its gone now. Bye! That said if they have not had the car long and you sense a storm brewing I would price up a battery from your usual supplier(s) and offer a good will gesture of that price.
