CONSUMER TRADING STANDARDS
JULY - After an initial telephone call to Ayrshire Trading Standards,
I was referred to Community Resources in Rutherglen.
02 AUGUST - Letter to Waterside Classics, enclosing the following
documentation:- letter from my insurer, MOT test certificate.
Letter ignored no reply or acknowledgement received.
01 SEPTEMBER - After two telephone calls to Trading Standards
I forwarded a letter, enclosing a copy of my original letter to Waterside,
and letter from my insurer, and MOT certificate.
08 SEPTEMBER - Letter from Trading Standards in which
I was advised that after a number of telephone calls made
by Trading Standards to Waterside Classics Mr Reid
the owner was not willing to offer any compensation.
Mr Reid also stated to Trading Standards that the spare tyre
was a brand new space saver tyre which was suitable for the car.
Yes the spare tyre provided by Waterside was new,
MGB's never had a space saver tyre, and
how could the tyre be suitable for my car when it resulted
in an MOT failure, ILLEGAL CAR with no INSURANCE
20 SEPTEMBER - Letter to Trading Standards in which I requested
if they would place in writing if I had a valid complaint.
To date this letter has been completely ignored by Trading Standards.
Clearly at this stage Trading Standards where out of their depth, and
finding the situation a little to difficult to handle, and after a few cosy
telephone calls to Mr Reid had exhausted all options for action.
My involvement with Trading Standards has been a
complete waste of time, if I can dissuade others from wasting
time and effort in contacting Trading Standards.
Then I will have achieved something.
