Madness OI! Where's my tax disc gone?

Left the car this morning with my usual guys who do an excellent job at cleaning her up.

Start driving away and noticed that my tax disc had disappeared?

Went back and questioned them and they had no idea...

So it's lost/nicked. I have to pay 7.00 for a replacement and write to the DVLA (Do very little authority).

I also had to report it to the police as a potential theft..

Unnecessary hassle.

Not unless they compensate me for the new one. Thing is I have been using them for at least a year now and this is the first problem I've come across. They did seem genuinely concerned. I think they may have sucked it up in the hoover. The manager said he will call me tomorrow.

Lets see if they can win you back.. At least you can still drive the car, as it is officially taxed, and you have a crime number in case you get stopped.

Re: OI! Where's my tax disc gone?

I know people make mistakes but I think I'd notice a tax disc shooting up the hoover spout?

My fingers are crossed for you that either its in the bottom of the hoover or you get compensated

They do an absolutely outstanding job though, that's my dilemma.

And FWIW those of you calling me a lazy git. I live in a flat and don't have the luxury of being able to clean the car myself. If I could I would I assure you.

I am not accusing them of stealing it.
