To all of you who hav been conned by Recondittioned Engines, Bray Engineering or what ever name they went under before. The VAT office would like to hear from you if you were charged VAT but did not have a VAT number on your invoice. It is illegal to do so even if they are pending but it does not take 6 months for a VAT number to come through. One I have has an application number which is not a VAT number so not allowed to charge VAT as a line item. Contact Freephone 080059500 or 08451019000.
Did anyone get threatened in any way as police would like to know as well.
Has anyone gone to court as we are advised their practices contravene the sale of goods act 1982. Call trading standards.
08454 04 05 06
Does anyone know how to contact Google anf other web hosts to request their site be removed as it depicts premisses and services they do not provide so connng people like us.
We are out of pocket by more than we should be and I was a fool to not research first but willing to join in any claims action.
Merry Xmas every one but don't feel very much like it at present

It may not get your money back but it will do a service to others and prevent them picking up the web site in the first place.
We finally got our car back with what looks like all the bits after paying £500 cash and it is now with a specialist Smart engine rebuilder who has all positive feedback.
Thank you so much for stopping me from using this company. They were so close to taking my car. But now I am back to square one and need my Hyundai Santa Fe 2litre TDi back on the road. Can anyone out there recommend where I can get a new engine or recon fitted at a sensible price. The Hyundai main dealers are at a loss and not coming up with anything sensible. The car is 7 years old and has been great until the oil filter in the sump blocked up and BANG on the M25 two weeks ago. As I need the car for my work I am getting desperate. Any help please, Ray
Check out Vege Re-manufactured engines. They may not do an engine for your car though. We used to be Agents for them and sold 100s with no problem.
I would try and find an engine from a salvage company, In my opinion it is the best option. They are from accident damaged cars and usually they come with a 3month warranty.

I looked high and low and received a quote from Reconditioned Eninges or what ever they call themselves . The quote was very tempting with free recovery and they were very professional on the phone . But as I did not want to give my pride and joy to anyone without doing more research I checked the forums on on the internet and boy I am so glad that I did.
Welcome to the site Harlequin, I am sure that a few folk will appreciate your post, especially if it saves them money, and gives them peace of mind

I managed to negotiate the price for the main work down to £1700 and was then quoted a week to ten days for the work to be completed. They recovered the car on the 1st of November, it's still there. Everytime i call to find out whats going on with my car either i get given a new date of completion or hung up on. I have no idea what else i can do, i live 89 miles away from their workshop and money is extremely tight. I know this is a review thread but if anyone has any advice, i could do with all the help i can get. Thanks.
Try talking to Consumers Direct http://www.consumerdirect.gov.uk/ they should give you some guidance on what can be done legally.
