I have had a few calls and people have been asking what experience I have ? Well I was given my first morris minor when I was 3 years old ! and have been working on them ever since.

Since leaving I have been working on them in my own time.

I have been asked if i work on other types of classic cars?. This is possible so long as you have the workshop manual for your car. Also if you just need an extra pair of hands working on your car get in touch.

I am Bristol based but I will travel anywhere within the mainland of the UK for longer jobs. I will only travel a maximum of an hour from my home to carry out a service for the above price any further and aditional charges will be added

I'd only see that you need to add that you have the relevant insurance and public liability :wink:  :D

Good luck, wish you the very best in your business, think you may well be very busy in the Bristol /Bath area soon.

Cheers

I think the vehicle inspection service is a very good idea - perhaps with a fixed price plus travelling time. If we had a few trusted traders doing this we could get coverage for the whole country.

Even though I've already got my truck I'd still pay to have a professional give it the once over - so I don't waste time and money fixing thing that are ok whilst ignoring things that aren't.

RTG. Good morning.

I too wish you all the very best in your new endeavours.

Quality workmanship and quality principles now there's a good combination that will be helped by word of mouth recommendations.

You'll have noticed , that the experts on here all have those same qualities.

Would agree an addition to your list might include mileage expenses.

Good Luck

RTG Services will provide a free inspection so long as the car is brought to us, but only by prior appointment.   A verbal report is free.  A written report will be chargeable.

If you would like us to inspect a car that you are unable to bring to us, there will be a charge for this service. All charges available on request.

I see you also recommended RTG Services on the other site - um couldn't miss your endnote referring to this site! Do you think they might politely ask you to tone it down a bit soon?!

They can ask if they want to. I don't view this site as a replacement for the MMOC board, just an alternative. Both boards reach different people.

If the Minor community as a whole is able to support two webforums then it must be pretty healthy really..........can only be good for us and our cars.

He was quite happy to allow me to watch what was going on. Which makes me feel here is a trustworthy person who I can do business with. My minor will go there again next time I need some welding doing.

I've been elswhere and it's been like trying to get across the border into North Korea (not that I've ever tried).....

You know, it's a bit like being in a restarant where they don't let you see into the kitchen-what are tey trying to hide?

If I were a customer looking for a bodyshop or mechanic to work on my Minor I'd insist on looking around at their latest work, and the process they employ. Ask for a workshop tour.
If they do not allow this then simply walk away.

Unfortunately the specialist who is receiving some flack at the moment, seems willing to showing folk around their workshop. I suppose that many folk do not really know what they should be looking for, or at, and could not tell good practice from bad, simply due to in experience.

We have performed major surgery on 5 cars this year which had been taken to this specialist, and have been shocked at the poor quality of work.Much covered over with sealer or filler, but more worrying the hidden welding simply had not been performed or was not to the standard required. The customer has no knowledge of this fact until they are involved in an accident, where in the case of a few cars we have to put right, would have been life threatening.

As the MMOC forum has recently related a specific case of a customers dissatisfaction with said company, it seems bizzare to me that having spent thousands on restoration the feel unwilling/unable to take them to court. this attitude simply leaves the door open for other to make the same mistake. The legal process is easy and there are some folk who are more than willing to offer free advice or valued help in preparing a case to take to court.

The MMOC too,have a selective memory even when supplied with court papers to proove a CCJ against a specialist who advertises in their magazine and has a listing on the website.
The notion that they will take action is a myth as they do not want to upset the trade, loose revenue, or become a 'political animal'. They will simply wriggle out of any action through their 'we will decide the gravity of the offence' irrespective of the courts ruling.
This was one of the main reasons I left the MMOC, and my ban from the forum soon followed.

The MMOC is a now a 'business' which only  provides the easy options of being a club, rallies,magazine, parts, insurance, all low key easy to maintain policies, run mainly by amateurs and volunteers so simply do not expect them to take any responsibility for their members welfare and rights, it will never happen.

I think Jonathon has got it dead right the MMOC is no longer a club in the true sence of the name. Its a business  - obviously more interested in its revenue streams than it's members
