Re: Kwik fit type garages
I don't touch Kwik Fit with a barge pole.
Couple of years ago I took my boss' 12 month old BMW 6 Series there for a new set of tyres.
The idea was he'd pick it up on his way out of work a few hours later.
When he got there and asked where his car was, the bloke at the front desk said 'out the front mate'. So he looked out there to check the work, and no BMW was to be seen.
He asked for the keys - and the assistant turned round to a cork board full of hooks behind the desk where they kept the keys (nice and secure huh?) and lo and behold, no keys.
Turns out the kid had gone for a fag break leaving the front desk unattended, at which point some pikeys who'd come in for something else grabbed the keys and legged it with said BMW.
He was very much an unhappy camper, and due to their incompetence I've never been back!
