The upshot is that the cost of taking a county court case against them will cost 80. The money they owe is 81.


The small claims link I sent (www.moneyclaim.gov.uk) costs 25 & they pay it if you are sucessful, as far as I can work out.

Best you hurry up and fix their other stuff. You don't want to lose customers.

Indeed. It's like one of those big red buttons that says DO NOT PUSH.

What happened?

Did you go round there and brandish a strimmer in a threatening manner?

I didn't suggest it - I specifically said that I didn't condone it. And if there's a peer reading this, they shouldn't be unless they agree to downsize.

I'm sure it still amounts to encitement, just mentioning it.

Lets just say................
I had a persuasive face to face conversation.


And we will be returing their broken gear....in the same state.

I have loads of nice paying customers and now understand why they had 'problems' with another garden machinery repair company.

But.......

I have learned something (well, a few things)from this whole episode -
firstly, I will be changing my invoices to make clear our terms & conditions, and adding these to our website.
Secondly, I (alone)will deal with invoices and chasing people.


A big thank you to all - although a small sum, this has unduly stressed me. Im all for supporting local businesses and really do try to help them out, but this has taught me a lesson - business is business.
