Cant say enough about service received from Laurance.
He went further than expected and I now have a new build awaiting my collection.
does 400 mile round trip come in essential travel as I need to collect rib .
After all its for recreational use.
Thanks XS Ribs.

I have been trying to buy a M/C ,something i have now done athough i had it delivered ,but did go to view a few which all dealers were treating the same ,
By placing a deposit it becomes click and collect ,they allow you to view in their car park ,and if you decide not for u ,they refund your deposit !
So athough not qualified in this matter in any way ,i would say once you paid ,you are click and collect which is within english rules ??

If you don't collect it get it home to play with it will drive you crazy God knows what you will do, for the safety of others it becomes essential and imperative that you keep sain. Go for it

If you go straight there and back and don't stop I agree it should rate as click and collect

Actually looked online and in England you are allowed to collect goods or services that have been ordered online ,by phone or post and may collect goods as long as you do not enter premises.
So going Tomorrow.

As advised took flask and sarnies, boat was outside ready to go,
couple of stops on way back to check all ok,got home safely.
boat now sitting on drive,really looks good.
Rib is a XS500,had console fitted further back and to starboard so when fishing one can stand in front and one at rear.
Highly recommend XS, great to deal with.
Thanks Mick.

There's a blue/orange XS500 with offset console at 11 to 12 mins on Laurence's latest video.

Yours perchance ???
