Expert Opinion

Post by Colesby » Wed Jan 27, 2016 11:08 am

My bus is being renovated by others and, whilst I know a bit about how things work and go together, I am no bus expert. Completion is imminent and I wondered if there is there anyone with loads of knowledge who lives/works around the Doncaster area who could inspect the work before I hand over the readies? Thanks.

Worth asking though - wish I had when mine was originally welded...

When you go to pick up your van, make sure you get a fully itemised invoice for ALL work carried out. At least that way you will have some come back if things don't turn out the way you hoped.

Thanks for your comments. I'm being told so often that I'm getting a good job that I'm beginning to doubt it! Cheers

Can you not pay a local restorer/specialist to come with you to check the bus over before you hand over the cash or collect it.
