    Default Halfrauds

    right got a rover 416 in the workshop today for a new cat , phoned camberley auto factors in reading and they quoted £46 + vat which isnt bad

    was passing halfrauds on the way home last night and thought id check there as i have the trade card

    they quoted £168 , i got up off the floor and said that camberley auto factors could do it for £46+vat and he shocked me by replying


    well camberley auto factors are the ones who supply our parts , so you can see our mark up on the price !!!!!!!!!!!


    fair play for his honesty but WTF

    Poor guy just works there, he dosen't set the prices but at least he was honest.

    Sometimes Halfords are just as bad as floors2go who also charge ridiculous prices.

    Why?, because they can, and people still buy from there so why charge less.

    The best money is made on peoples ignorance or stupidity and if you take a little time to shop around you can buy cheaper, sometimes lots cheaper.

    If everyone shopped around then their prices would soon drop or they would go out of business.
