Great british engines in Basildon

Post by scimjim » Sat Jan 31, 2015 4:20 pm

This isn't a recommendation but a warning (we don't have a section for cowboy traders :-))

Mainly moderns (low quotes with long guarantees) but this company has gone through several name changes and seems to leave a trail of destruction behind each one. ... s-basildon

"based at Tiffanys Farm, Burnt Mills Road then it is owned by a rogue trader called Lee, also known as Adrian Clive Abbott...that info can be gained by doing company searches, as well as addresses. It seems Great British Engines wasn't even a registered company (shocker). Also any company using an e mail address of is owned by the same guy. They get custom with great quotes, with a 2 year warrantee."
