Latest Check-Ins

VERY DISAPPOINTING!
Frankly, I can NOT share the enthusiasm for this workshop:
On the positive side, they took us on at short notice on a holiday (for which they charged a ‚call out‘ rate of N$ 400 - which is ok).
Jacques was very nice and friendly, but had to leave and left the job to Chris.
Chris carried it out quick and fast … BUT: as it became obvious, a bit too fast and not thorough and not thought out well enough … a bit ‚cowboy‘-style.
Result:
- Job 1 (refixing the spare wheel mounting) was good for 330 km, then it got loose and cracks appeared
- Job 2 (refixing outside mirror) was good for 10 (ten) km
We reported these unsatisfactory situation by whatsapp, sent pictures … asked repeatedly for a comment … suggesting a settlement by means of a partial refund … took a while to get a rather ridiculous answer from Chris, flatly (and aggressively) refusing to discuss a refund and claiming he had told me it (ie his job) wont hold …
Fact is:
yes, he told me (but only after he had finished his job) that for additional stability, the wheel should have additional fixings … but he didnt have the required material. So I asked him, to get reassurance, if the job he just finished would hold … Chris confirmed with confidence: „Yes, sure!“. – As we experienced, it held for 330km.

Isn’t this ridiculous: a client comes with a problem … they say they can fix it and go about fixing it … they then take the money and on a side note remark that additional fixings should be considered … but confirm that the job, as they did it, will hold … and then let the client drive away … and when the job breaks some 330km later, the claim: „I told you it wont hold!“

Judge for yourself if you want to entrust your vehicle to such people.
