    Really? Will have to add that in! Although a dead of night removal is more amusing!

    Checkatrade is not all that, i wouldnt worry. Also, you cannot go onto property and start taking stuff, unless its done in the dead if night. I have had a similar experience. Long story short, did some horse fencing and two pairs of gates. She refused to pay £300 of the final amount, saying i put the fence in the wrong place amd not in accordance with her plan. I used the plan the daughter gave me.Went to court, they won by lying and blaming her 18year old daughter for giving me the wrong plan. They seemed to know the judge. Anyway, the pairs of gates mysteriously vanished one night, along with the gate fittings. Not that i took them or anything, I did hear they sold for more than the £300.

    Brother arborists - Stolen Ford Transit

    Molegrips on the side lock opens all doors. Also, a transit courier is easy to get into by using a hacksaw blade to slice into the wiring loom just behind the front wheel arch. Remind me the benefits of owning a ford??

    Why are we not allowed to say on here who is responsible? By giving them this protection, we are just encouraging them even more

    Both much of a muchness. Hoping by the time my cabstar needs replacing, isuzu have a double cab out, so i can choose between the two. I looked at the mitsy, but bluetooth wasnt even available! Way behind the times

    There is no way you have to show them every reciept and invoice. You just have to send them the spreadsheet workings electronically, which my accountant will be doing for me

    Wood chip arson. CCTV

    Whats up with people? You can get a trail camera, and if you go for a good one, the batteries last quite a while.

    Thats certainly an eye opener there! How many people will stick to the limits remains to be seen!
