Pajero Workshop Recommendations

Tue Oct 05, 2010 5:15 pm

This thread was suggested by Anton.

Here you can give a breakdown (excuse the pun) of who you had good service from, and contact details (please no email addresses). Also indicate why you think it is good service. This is restricted to vehicle related services and fitment centres. This is not the place to lodge complaints. perhaps this could be a format of awarding a POCSA workshop of the year...

Hopefully this well help rather than having loads of questions as to whom to contact.

The format should be:

PROVINCE:
METRO AREA (If Any):
DEALER / WORKSHOP NAME:
CONTACT PERSON:
CONTACT DETAILS:
SERVICE RENDERED:
SERVICE SMILEYS (Out of 3, 1 being good, 3 being beyond reasonable): :D :D :D

(Also does body alterations (AKA "Pimping") - not my scene, though). Used twice in the past, and currently lined up for three jobs for me. That should indicate my faith in them.
Proud of their Christian faith, and shows sound values accordingly.

PROPOSAL:

Anyone that uses the info on this thread (or any other POCSA thread for that matter) - please tell the supplier that you got the lead from POCSA. This will establish some bargaining power to members (over time) and also will serve as warning to the supplier to deliver good service (knowing that we may discuss poor service amongst each other here).
