Accidents happen! In my case the wheelie bin jumped out and bit the corner of my van leaving a small but awkwardly placed dent. A search for a repairer followed but they were either too busy, didn’t have enough space or wanted to keep the van for days in what looked to be less than secure premises. I really wanted a mobile repairer but they too often only worked on cars and light vans.
I almost became resigned to leaving the dent there and accepting the occasional ribbing when someone spotted it for the first time. But then I stumbled across an advert for the “The Vehicle Refinishing Company Ltd”. What an odd name, but they did do motorhome and caravan repairs. Reviews were good, so I emailed them a few pictures and got a quote. Everything went smoothly from there on and I had the repair done.
I am pleased with the repair and the service from Matthew who is the company owner. Unfortunately he only covers, Dorset, Hampshire, Wiltshire and Devon but he is prepared to go outside that area. To find out more look them up on Facebook or Google for their webpage.
Hottest April day for 49 Years!
Thanks to Richard and Ruth for stewarding a great rally at Greenhills site in Bakewell. The fine spring weather made the spectacular location in Derbyshire perfect. The ralliers from the 12 vans present enjoyed guided walks, shopping trips, an evening meal at a local pub, afternoon tea with van baked cakes and just socializing in the warm sunshine.
I cannot promise the same weather at Hereford or indeed Ilkley and Bridgnorth but you will enjoy the same hospitality. Worried about being on one of these green field sites? Well do not be because the great benefit of being with others is that help is always to hand should you need it. There will always be someone who has what is needed be it tools, jump leads, tow ropes, spare gas bottles or just a friendly chat and cup of tea.
Do not leave it too late contact the rally stewards now and find out what is on offer.
