Fitting Notes:

  1. I work to an agreed price irrespective of how long the job takes. That way I am under no pressure to rush so can take my time to do a quality job, and  you don't get any unpleasant surprises

  2. Payment is in cash (preferred) on the day, or bank transfer, or Paypal "Gift" only. No Cheques or eCheques or IOUs of any kind :-)  A receipt can be provided if required. .

  3. I prefer to start early, typically at 08:15 - 08:30 . Fridays are preferred but other Weekdays/times can be accommodated on request, especially during school holidays.

  4. I work outside so fitting services are restricted over winter depending on the weather (typically December - February). Fitting tasks may be possible during this time so DO get in touch if you need to.

  5. Please note that I specialise in gear linkage work (plus gearbox/engine oil changes, clutch cables fitted and mountings), but I am not interested in doing other mechanical work.
