We recently had a problem van and chucked a fair few quid at it. Local mechanic that claimed he was changing this part and that part etc and charge quite a few quid in the process. Smelt a rat as the driver is quite clued up him self and pulled him when he noticed he had not changed a part that he said he was there todo and had charge nearly 1k for. Anyway long story short he left the van no better than when he first started (over 2k lighter as well) He then stopped answering phone and messages and ignored us. Despite us asking on several occasions for invoices to be sent over. We always promptly via bacs when he asked. He has been paid for other works on a different van that have not been done and is obviously now not replying to us. Everything was doing via the phone so no paperworks to say what he was going to do. Is this worth taking it further or a lost cause?
