I sent a bronze propeller to be repaired. Matter of emergency as was on East Coast of England.
Four days later I got an email and refund saying one blade could not be straightened. I emailed requesting my propeller be returned so I can get a new one made up for £100 less than what was quoted.
I kept emails coming to say I needed propeller back urgent.
A week after refund I get an email saying staff are on holiday but workshop is still open.
So I phone up asking where my propeller is. This stroppy woman answered first and then me onto this chap called Dave.
I asked him why my propeller was not returned. He replied he was not a mind reader. These people are talking online orders and someone is sending customers emails yet they are not able to respond to emails requesting their property back.
Not once did they ask me if I wanted bronze propeller back and I personally think this is a deliberste scam to get scrap metal.
Avoid like the plague. Something very suspicious about this lot and his reaction was far from convincing.
I will be taking legal action.
