    Default halfords tools

    hi all

    right about 2mths ago i bought from halfords 1 of their advance range 1/4"
    drive ratchets,its been replaced 2 times and they told me that they dont
    have their lifetime guarantee on this range,i couldnt find my origional reciept
    but they replaced it for the last time so if it went again then id have to pay
    for a replacement ratchet kit. (halfrauds they call it lol)

    anyway few days ago i used it and again it broke so i now i visit a different
    halfords and explained what had gone wrong previously and without any
    quibbes they replaced it with the next 1 up in the range which was bit more
    expensive and they said theyve changed the guarantee and the advanced
    range does have the lifetime guarantee and you dont have to have the
    reciept as its clearly marked with their range on it so happy days,i have to
    take my hat off for them this time and theres times like this that they do
    deserve some credit.

    very HELPFORDS indeed

    sets are NOT covered on the lifetime guarantee.
