  1. Thanks. Yes I think you're probably right here
  2. Had my car services at local garage. Drove 100 yards and car broken down. Someone had forgotten to reconnect the diesel feed. Diesel all over the road, inside the engine bay etc. Anyway, they sorted that (thought it was funny!) Got home. Car engine seemed louder than normal. Checked - the air filter cover had been rammed back on, forced down, and screwed back on wonky. Massive gap - hence the noise. All I've got from them is "bring it back in". Mega hassles for me to do this. I dread to think what else they've done wrong with this service based on what
  3. £95 not a lot..... Read somewhere that theres the option to have the issue determined by someone (I guess the judge) without having to attend court?
  4. Can the defendant really claim loss of earnings? I thought the idea of the small claims court was just that they couldnt do that? I remember taking an employment agency to court once. Refused to pay me long story. They called me personally the day before and threatened to claim £1000s in costs if I went ahead - trying to intimidate me. I went to court and they didn't show so I won. But I remember the judge telling me they can't do this because it just means that people get bullied into dropping the case when they were probably right because they don't want to risk a fin
  5. Incidentally, how much would court fees be for this if it went that far?
  6. Thanks BankFodder. Makes sense..... Still think - based on other dealings I had with the guy that hes tried it on. (He tried to offer me £200 to take the car off my hands, I've since had it valued at over £2000 so he tried it on a bit there). I still think hes thought, wont say anything, keep quiet, easy £100 for 30 mins work collecting this car.... Nice little earner.
  7. Claim details Claim number: Claim amount: £125.72 View amount breakdown Amount breakdown Amount Fee for Recovery £100 Interest £0.72 Claim fee £25 Claim Total £125.72 Reason for claim: Car was booked in to Mr Thomas' garage several weeks in advance.

  8. April Spoke to garage - can look at in 3 weeks. Mentioned that car was not driveable, exact words "no problem I can collect" Stupidly, I did not clarify this was for free. So car goes into garage. Some work gets done but I decided not to go ahead with all of it. Alarm bells started to ring when he offered me about 5% of what it was worth "to save you paying me £100 to bring it back". I declined this and got the invoice to find I'd been charged £100 for "recovery fee". At the time, I did complain and say it would have been nice if he'd told me that i
  9. Reason for claim: Car was booked in to Mr Thomas' garage several weeks in advance. At the time, a discussion was held as to how the vehicle would be transported to Mr Thomas' premises. Mr Thomas advised me that collecting the car would be no problem. At the time the car was booked in, no mention was made of a "Recovery charge" to collect the vehicle. I would argue that it would have been fair for Mr Thomas to make this clear at the time. The charge made of £100 is much more than the going rate. Again, I would argue that it would have been fair for Mr Thomas to make it clear at the time th
  10. Merged wth wrong thread BTW Ross Thomas - Thomas Classic and Modern Cwmbran I'll get claim form posted.
  11. OK heres the full story.... My wifes has an old classic car thats off the road. I phoned this guy and he said he could look at in 6 weeks. We discussed the fact that the car was not driveable and his exact words were "no problem I'm happy to collect it on my traier". Off it goes. Went ahead with some of the work, not all - still not driveable. So he tells me £100 if you want it back. Then he gives me the invoice for the work done and I see "Collection Fee £100". In the end I have to pay the bill to get the car released but I let him know I'm not happy - I also arrange m
