Covid - 19 and lockdowns

We take the current situation very seriously and therefore are not currently taking new work in. We are open for mail order parts business as usual. we can take orders via phone, email or directly from our online webshop. We will endeavour to send things as quickly as possible and this is still mostly same day. However, there are delays with couriers both to and from us, so supplies can go up and down and delivery times are not always as fast as they used to be. Please bear with us on this and we will get you your parts.

We actively discourage visits to our site and ask you to have parts sent out to you if at all possible. Hopefully for most that is more convenient anyway.

Fire in the hold !

Well next door really! OK things have happened and rather than let  rumours tell the story - here are the facts!

We’re OK. There was a fire in a workshop that runs along the outside wall (an extension to the building on the of the main building). It had been disused and was a very dark and damp place, but was all part of another unit in the main building. Well it got renovated over the summer (new roof, new access etc) and someone new was in there, supposed to be doing coach-trimming. However they were in fact running 2 floors of cannabis plants. Needless to say they overloaded the wiring and burnt that workshop out. Fortunately it didn’t send ours up ! No damage to us or cars or stock - thank goodness!

Problem is that it took the incoming mains electric out all the way back onto Powder Mill Lane. The electric company have condemned the wiring in the building and will not reconnect unless everything is certified from scratch. Estimate to do whole building and reconnect is sky high ! The landlord isn't keen to spend money as he has already said the building is going on the market as a redevelopment site – but this could take 1 – 2 years to sort out.

S
o at moment we have a generator powering the office and some lights. We have decided to concentrate just on mail order from now on and not take further jobs in until we resolve the situation. Most likely this will involve finding a new premises. To be honest we have so much mail order work at moment that we weren’t looking for mechanical work to take on anyway – so apart from the continuous noise from the generator we’re doing fine.

Stay safe and healthy everyone.
