    Well my luck just gets worse I don't know another person who has bad luck like me, this happened in about 2 hours, bearings started to go on my van, then the breaks started to grind slightly, then my exhaust snapped and to top it all of the gear box has decided to call it a day.
    Looks like my van is getting sSwear word!ped so on the hunt for a new one today.

    I think I have as much bad luck as you

    A couple weeks ago, one of two ladder clamps decided to come off a thread so it wouldnt twist anymore, then, when I serviced my car, the starter motor went, had to get a second hand one from sSwear word!, then in the same week got bit by a dog lol.

    H I couldn't afford a new van when I first set up so I didn't have that option.

    How many vans you had then big h?
    To be honest you can spend 3 grand on a van & it can still break down. You can spend £500 on a van & it could go on forever. Just how yer luck is. One reason why I don't spend money on sign writing.
