Riiight, I was looking for an auto electrician, and eventually used Autosafe clifton (york), and so far, have been messed about since friday!
Booked it in last monday, told them everything I wanted doing etc, and took it in friday. The manager tells me that they're still working on another car with some serious probs, so dont know how long they can spend on mine. I didnt kick up a fuss, just toddled off to do some shopping (30 mins drive from home, or an hours bus ride with no car!). Went back in later to find they hadnt done anything, so asked if I could leave it with them overnight and pick it up the next afternoon. They told me this was ok. Get there the next morning, all they've done is got it on the machine, not fixed the seat belt light, and put a switch in the dash (not connected to anything). I book it in for tuesday, and they then realise in the afternoon, that to put fog lamps in, you need to cut the bit of the bumper out! Why they didnt realise this the week before I dont know! They mentioned that they knew a bodyshop that could do it, so I asked them to get me a quote and ring me back.
They dont ring me back, I ring them this morning, and its already been sent to them and they've started it - without my authorisation!! And after being told the manager would ring me back - he didnt (again) so I ring him and he babbles on, telling me that the bodyshop has reasonable prices, but cant tell me how much its going to be!! So I'm still waiting on a price for it - which I am not going to be happy about if its something silly - I was intending on doing it myself if it was too expensive, and I'm currently gearing up for an argument!
Anyone else had a problem of a garage carrying out work you didnt authorise and expecting you to pay for it?
