Service with a smile

Have we really had the Sancerre for a year now?

The fact that the van's service book is screaming out for another stamp confirms this.  Earlier in the year we used the services of a local mobile workshop to fit an external gas point for us, and so impressed was I with the price, competence and level of service provided, the decision was made to use them for the annual service instead of towing the van back to the supplying dealer.

It's one of those dark, damp, windy and miserable December days that only West Wales can have when the cheerful little man from Leisure Medic rings the bell.

I take up far too much of his time picking his brains about this and that, as well as sounding him out for a motor mover.  In addition to the service, there's a few jobs that need doing.

  1. The fridge door drops whenever too much stuff is put in it, and has resulted in herself breaking one or two nails which in turn results in me being the most popular bloke on the planet ...... again!!!!
  2. Your ham-fisted scribe also broke the awning light when changing a blown bulb, so that needs replacing.
  3. Our travels along the rather wed and muddy mid Wales roads throughout the year have left our rear steadies in a state such that you need to have forearms like Popeye to be able to wind them down, so they need freeing up.
Just over 2 1/2 hours later I am presented with a newly stamped up service record, all jobs done and an itemised receipt.  All for the very reasonable £130.  I am a very happy chappy as I was paying more than that in 2005 at a dealer for a basic service!!

I would not hesitate to recommend Leisure Medic to anyone who needs work doing on their caravan in South West Wales.
