Has anyone bought a car from gbcardeals.co.uk.? If so was the service good and, more importantly, did the car arrive and was it what you ordered. They quote good prices (as advertised on this site) but before I commit I'd be reassured if someone hhas good experience of them. Thhanks.
I bought a new car from them last year. They delivered the wrong car and told me that I could use it in the meantime free of charge. They then withdrew this offer after a few weeks and demanded over £800 in 'hire car' fees. They got a third-partty company to intimidate me until I paid them.
When I eventually got my new car, it was registered to somebody else. There was a big argument between the company, the DVLA and myself over the tax. As a result, I couldn't drive my brand new car for about six weeks whilst it was sorted out.
Throughout this entire saga, they were incredible abhorant and defensive.
The Police and Trading Standards are aware of the company and I suspect they won't be around much longer.
I've also had a problem with GBCARDEALS, aka Spectrum Vehicle Contracts.
As with PG562's complaint, I purchased a car from them last year and the wrong car was delivered. I was allowed to keep it until the proper car arrived. I never received the log book and I later found out that the vehicle was registered to someone in Milton Keynes (Lora Trading (Lease Deal?)).
I received the proper car about 2 months later, again without the log book.
GBCARDEALS kept making excuses as to why DVLA had not delivered the log book. I eventually found out that my (this) car was also registered to someone c/o Lora Trading.
DVLA were extremely helpful and eventually registered the vehicle to me, at my address, as the first registered keeper.
Between the first car arriving and the second car being registered to me, I was probably driving illegally (both registration and insurance).
GBCARDEALS - Spectrum Vehicle Contracts - Spectrum Motor Centre - Diamond Contract Hire - same bunch.
I also checked out the T&Cs for New Car Deals, and Para 5.6 is the same as Spectrum Vehicle Contracts T&Cs - even quoting Spectrum Vehicle Contracts.
