Engines First LTD (NORFOLK)

 

I need help i am having problem with this company after googling found out this is dissolved company and still trading on 1stchoice.co.uk with five star rating.

 

I ordered my corsa diesel engine on Monday morning the guy said engine will be with me by Wednesday or Thursday and ask my email for sending invoice but after numerous calls still not received any email.

 

 

On Tuesday i rang them again to ask if they dispatch the engine yet or not but the guy put me on hold then said he will ring me back in 10mins waited an hour but no call the same thing they were telling me about sending invoice, whenever i ring them they say ok we going to send you but no sign of any invoice or email.

 

After an hour i rang back and been told that engine not available anymore ok i asked cancel this transaction he said ok i issue refund now.

 

After an hour i rang bank and ask if he actually issued refund or not, bank told me he cant issue refund because money still not cleared all he can do is cancel the transaction and money will go back to your account. I rang him again and this time he was bit rude and said why you keep ringing us we issued refund and you will get money back to your card.

 

Today Wednesday i checked my bank and money left my account completely and the company name appears as 'The Engine Company Norwich'. Rang card company and been told nothing has been requested from the seller so seller not issued any refund at all as he said yesterday.

 

Can anybody give some advice on this.

 

Thank you

Engine first was struck off by Companies House last year and as such, a complaint needs to be made to Trading Standards.

 

It sounds like the payment is 'in progress' so double check with the bank and demand that they don't pay it. It's a bit like putting your money into a holding account for a couple of days.

 

If you paid direct to Engine first by credit/debit card, you should have protection. If you paid via 1stChoices website via PayPal there may be other issues to contend with.

 

I would initiate a chargeback just to be on the safe side.

Money has left my account today and it appears on transaction 'The Engine Company Norwich'.. I paid by debit card, the card people say wait till Friday then contact us then we raise the claim. On the other hand they also asked me to ring the seller and ask if they refunded then send confirmation email or letter to us which i doubt they will do it

1stChoice are just an intermediary and as such, I don't think there will be much comeback from them although you could make them aware that they are allowing dissolved companies to advertise. Sounds like the card company are being as helpful as they can at the moment but TBH they could have been a bit quicker.

 

If you can't get the confirmation email from Engine First, try ringing them and record them saying they will refund. You don't need to tell them you are recording them.

Please remove this post immediately. We have never been on Rogue Traders and take this as defamation of our company name. This customer bought an engine from us on the Monday afternoon, and because of his extreme rudeness to our staff the order was cancelled by us and his card refunded the next day. There are no other complaints on Google regarding our company so please remove this immediately. you as a fair forum should not be adding fuel to this one rogue customers fire

Just to clarify I sort of got the same that the company is dissolved so done a bit more digging just to confirm the findings and this is what I got:

 

On checking the Ops thread Post#11, the screenshot Email is [email protected] so I shortened the email to enginesfirstltd.co.uk.

 

A Whoisdomain check of enginesfirstltd.co.uk link: http://whois.domaintools.com/enginesfirstltd.co.uk brings up:

 

Domain name:

enginesfirstltd.co.uk

 

Registrant:

David Walker

 

Registrant type:

UK Individual

 

Registrant's address:

26 Bulwer Road

Buxton

Norwich

NR10 5HG

United Kingdom

 

NOTE: The Registrants name DAVID WALKER

 

I have then checked Companies house and numerous other company checkers either by company name or directors name David Walker and they all keep coming back to this dissolved company and the link between them is the individuals name David Walker.

 

Enginesfirst Ltd

Now lets take a closer look at theenginecompany

 

theenginecompany.co.uk

 

Now theenginecompany.co.uk and doing a Whoisdomain check link http://whois.domaintools.com/theenginecompany.co.uk

ON trying to do a company check of the above company I am coming back completely blank cant find nothing on the company and even on checking David Walker as a Director this company aint their.

 

 

 

I think we should push this lot to verify exactly who they are i.e. give us your company number to verify

Warning,

The Engine Company are up to their old tricks even today.

 

bought an engine from them arrived days after they said it would.

 

'DAVE' was the stroppiness guy I've ever had the misfortune to deal with over the phone.

 

after nearly ten days the engine arrived,

I say engine but as soon as my mechanic saw it he called me to come down to the garage.

 

Pile of c==p! God knows how it stayed on the pallet!

We refused it outright and watched it get reloaded onto the lorry.

promised a refund but guess what he never did.

 

I've asked my cc company to claim the £900 back.

WHAT A BOOTIFUL SERVICE Definitely a NORFOLK TURKEY!

My god I have recently purchased a complete engine from these people

 

I hope to god we don't have the same experience, but not looking good,

we were told 2/3 days

 

we made payment day later

we had a phone call saying the engine dosent come with the turbo,

would have the engine on Friday,

 

Friday rang up asking for invoice and tracking number

we had to wait but they sent invoice but no tracking because apparently the people in the yard had removed the wrong engine,

not happy at this time as we were hiring minibus at £110 per day

 

the boss rang me back and promised it will be this Tuesday.

The engine is low millage 65000 please be ok.

I will come back hopefully with good news about the company

Never did get my refund from these guys. I had to get my credit card company to go after him.

Fingers crossed that it turns out okay for you but I would get the warranty on paper just to be sure

and keep your fingers crossed.
