Travelling down the M5 to my 78 year old mother to bring here back to Nottingham for Christmas,
my rear wheel bears were failing, so I limped the car into Michael woods services, to do repairs on both sides, under a lamp post
as it was late, and raining, I had to ask for grease at the petrol station they had none, so I approached lorry drivers for help.
Having missed the car area parking, which is easy to, aspecially at night, I ended up under parking under a low lamp post which was I thought a good position to see.
there were 3 drivers which I spoke to, and no warning, in regard to charges, from them, as the man in the station also never warned me.
I made repairs with to tools I had brought with me, because I could not afford AA, or RAC, cover,
there was a recovery truck were I was pulling up and thought I could get some grease from him, but as I approatched he drove off, I was ,disappointed
I asked a truck driver If they had any grease, and one said I could take some from under his artic.
Repairs done, I exited Michael wood services and travelled down to Portland Dorset to my mothers.
Before retuning back to Nottingham I purchased new bearing and put them in the rear wheels, return journey was good.
This morning received charges for over staying from parking eye,
why would I want to stay longer than is nessarey repairs took 2 hours 52 mins,in the cold dark wet night!! niper
