Been wanting to replace the Halfords jack and axle stands I have for a while now as the jack doesn't give me confidence when jacking up high, and the stands are the type where you shove a pin through holes at pre-set heights. Inevitably you want it higher than one hole but without having to jack up to the next one!
After having a chat with Mark (GSi3.2) he put me onto a cracking deal that Sealy had....
This 3 tonne jack (same one that Mark has as it happens).....
....normally retails at £146, but they were selling it for £117 - a saving of 20%, so not bad - but then it got even better. Included in the price of £117.50 (all delivered) were the following additional items......
3 tonne axle stands - much better method of adjustment - (again same as Mark has!)
Creeper (yep, you guessed it! Same as Mark's again - sheer coincidence)
Inspection lamp.... (not the same as Mark's! )
Oh, and a stunt kite! What everyone needs in their workshop! lol
I also got the additional saddle rubber pad for the jack....
....to give a bit of extra protection from damaging anything when jacking.
They all arrived when I was in France so opened them all up today and used the jack, stands and creeper as I was doing something on the car. Used the normal rear jacking points, with the rubber pad on the saddle - which fitted nicely in the cut-out bit of the skirts and sat centrally on the jacking point. Jack made short work of lifting the car up and inspired a lot more confidence than the Halfords one I had used before. Axle stands were sooo much better to use due to the better adjustment method.
So, for £117.50 plus (with free delivery!!!) plus the extra £6 odd for the rubber pad, it was an absolute baaaaaargain!!
So thank you Mr Mark for the heads-up on that offer
I meant to post this earlier in the week to let other people know about it, but with going away to France I only sorted my order out just before I left and the offer ends today!
EDIT: Offer now extended to end of October!!
