Just before I say anything below I just want to confirm that I only heard this and can not confirm if it is true or not so if anyone has an issue with this, DON'T BLAME ME!!!!
I was talking to a lad last week who works at a Kwik Fit in Nottinghshire and he said he could get me some tyres pretty cheap. I thought great, maybe he can drop in his staff discount or something similar?
So I asked what brands he could do? He said he could do anything but he didn't always have them? I thought that was a bit odd as normally they can get anything the same day - Anyway, he was a chatty little bugger, and he liked to big himself up - so, without actualy telling him my tyre sizes or anything I asked him how much for a set of Goodyear F1 Eagles and he said he could do them all for Ł70!!!!
Strange as I paid Ł250 for 2 at Kwik Fit only a couple of months a go! So I asked him how come, are they nicked from the stores? Nooo.....
He and all his colleagues look out for people who don't know anything about their cars and tell them that their tyres have "puncture and/or damage" when they are perfectly ok and get them to buy new tyres (to meet company targets) and sell the perfectly good tyres for cash "round the back".
In this day and age why are we still having to put up with jumped up little rude boys who's only dream is to make a few quid by ripping people off...............?
