    Hi again. Just been to see this one

    Link

    Bit of rot in the front left of the luton. But no more than 6" spread. High moisture reading in the bottom of the wall in the shower area. But structure is still solid. Other than that I can't see anything that I couldn't sort out myself. Do you think it's good for the price?

    Thanks in advance

    I would have thought it might be nearer to £4K, but based on simbadogs link I would appear to be wrong

    If they didn't point out the issues you have found definitely use them to try for a discount though if you go any further

    Machzone's were always very well constructed, Built in Nottingham.
    It still appears to be in good condition inside, but you need to be sure of the ingress of moisture, and the cost of repair, before going any further.
    Is there any moisture readings around the windows and in the cabinets?
    Have you taken it for a test drive, if so how does it sound?
    Will you be repairing it your self, or contracting the work out, that will be costly.
    Are there any signs of seal failure on the outside wall and roof?

    As I have said, they were very well constructed, and moisture ingress makes me cautious. Proceed with caution and good luck.

    Hi
    Not sure where you are based but if you can easily get to Glens Autos then it's certainly an experience.

    Lots of Machzones when we were there - friends had recommended this place and told us they will do a deal.

    Think one up from Steptoes Yard :D and lots of old motorbikes in the inside unit at the front if that's your thing(y)

    Not for us but our friends on a tight budget think they're great....

    I'm near Manchester so a few hours to Glenns. I might have a drive out if I have no luck locally.

    If you do come this way it may be worth you calling at Oaktree as well just near Ikea, j26 of the M1 on the A610 - they have the older mohos round the back, behind the service unit.

    Guessing they are about 5 miles apart.
