    OK, so I left it a few days then got hubby to ring up about the van, the guy says yeah truck should be fixed on Thursday, can deliver Friday or Saturday......the whole week goes by with out a word.....hubby calls him Saturday, he wont answer, he calls a few times leaves messages, when he finally answers, you can not understand him as lost his voice, but the guy we needed to speak to apparently was not available...

    I text him later Saturday stating if he cant deliver then to give me deposit back....I get text 5 hours later, saying if you want van, come and get it., you wont be getting deposit back read your t&cs.

    so hubby calls him, no answer, but then get a text from him, so hubby calls him again, he answers with his craoked voice pretending he is from Pakistan.!!!!! few more texts went back and forth threating us with a bill to store this van.!!!
    I rang him again this morning(sunday) he told me with his croaky voice that he was not dealing with it today and hung up, I rang straight back stating that somehow we got cut off and I would like a address to send correspondents to when I report them to trading standards/gumtree and the police. He kindly shouted down phone to me that I have to call him tomorrow at 9am!!!

    I have now emailed him stating he has broken his side of the contract, I would like deposit back....I will also call him tomorrow.....wow there really is cow boys out there....rude ones at that...

    Sounds like he needs paying a visit to me. Would a customer of yours put up with this :turd: Shaz? Of course they wouldn't.

    theres a few similar traders in this area Shar ,

    back when i was a mechanic i got to know of the dodgy lads selling sh/t with a respectable front. that reminds me,one of them is called Dodge. so tread warily even if you buy locally , a lot of sales places slip write-off repaired vans into the mix on the forecourt . some have family members who spend their whole working lives buying and repairing write offs [cut and shut] to a very high cosmetic standard , but basically shouldnt be on the road ever again

    I hate buying vehicles,....................I find it hard to trust any car/van sales places.
