    Default My Mistake but Im Fuming !!!!!

    In a rush today so whilst shopping I decided to give my very much worked on car (Paintwork mostly) to the tesco's outdoor car cleaners.

    When I got back my heart sunk.

    Some of you know how much effort has been put in to get my paintwork to almost show standard.

    Well thats been ruined now and I will need a loan of a DA to hopefully remedy the damage,

    I also had a masssive row with the boss there. Showed him the damage but he said it was not his guys, I asked him how long he has been cleaning cars with sandpaper. Well got my money back and an offer to come back so he can polish it for free. Sod that im never going back there again,

    Worst job ever,

    Tescos in Hatfield Hertfordshire

    Sorry but what did you expect? It takes me nearly 1 hour to wash my car, if I start with snowfoam. I bet they do it in less than 10 minutes. I have watched the car care vandals at my local multi story car park, and i have past the trolleys they have their stuff on, the car wash buckets look like they have dredged the water from the local burn. They use old style sponges and even those blades to remove the water. Worse case scenario is I would use a jet wash, but never the brush, or id just leave it dirty.

    that is why i never use local hand washes, these places are very busy, they use dirty old cloths and shamys which get grimed up etc etc, droped on the floor and alsorts, id rather have a dirty car then let these cowboys any where near it, however i dont mind gving them a couple of pounds to do my alloys.

    hope you get this sorted mate i feel for you as i know how much your car means to you.

    Oh jeez, I feel your pain there.

    My wife got her black CR-V brand new a couple of years back, and then it unforunately it had to go in for repair work after only a month after some stupid woman ran a red light and clattered the corner of it. I was fuming when I went to pick it up when it was finished, as the paintwork all over the whole car looked exactly like that. Think they must have washed it with a pressure washer and a dirty brush. Refused to even take it off their premises until they acknowledged it, and agreed that remedial work was required. Like your Tesco wash folk, the most annoying thing was that the bodyshop manager seemed to think it was perfectly acceptable. Erm no, it was a car a month old and with 1400 miles on the clock, that had only ever been washed by hand with a lambswool mitt!!

    When my car goes to the dealers for its service/mot, they 'ask me now' if i want them to give it a quick free wash (which i decline) before i collect it.
    The reason i said "ask me now" is i went mental when they did it the first time, it was as bad as yours is now !
    Never ever again.


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !
