    Been quoted £250 by Discover to service the coach part of our 1yr old Bessacarr E495.
    Duccato cab service from Fiat £250.
    Can anyone recommend any alternative/better service centers in the Northwest?
    Since there have been a lot of dealers go bust in the last year, there seems to be a lot of engineers starting up on their own.
    Can anyone recommend a mobile service engineer?

    We've been trying to find somewhere to get our Adria done at a reasonable price but I have been told by Adria it has to be with one of their dealers to keep the Adria warranty. I can get the Renault service done by anybody who is VAT registered & providing they use the correct parts the warranty will be OK.
    Have you tried DAVE NEWELL he was doing Both Services £201.25 inc Vat plus service parts.
    Up to now I have been quoted prices around £400 :Eeek: it's annoying when you know how little they do for this.

    Hi Pete, his name is actually mark:Blush: but he wont mind Ive called him a lot worse. Although he is very good and well worth it, he did inform me that he doesn't come up this way as its a bit far. From memory Walnut you live in Warrington area? If so Mark gave me the no of a chap that covers that area that Mark knows. I will pm it to you.
    I have used Dave Newall and Mark and they are both good. It seems the sole traders appear to take a little more care in what they do to ensure repeat work:thumb:

    I don't know anything about this guy, but I happened to see his van outside a house the other day so made a mental note of his website. He covers Mid & North Wales and Cheshire. Might be worth a phone call or email his form off website. Website says he does motorhomes (habitation) but I note he is also a timeserved LGV mechanic. www.caravan-man.com

    Give A1 Mobile Caravan Services a call 01925 451513 or 07811 732367 He isnt far from you and I have heard very good reports about him from a mate and also the garage I use.
    Will be using him next time.

    Widnes Caravans are also NCC approved workshop and are competitive. I have used them in the past with no problems. If by Discover you are talking Delamere, Widnes Caravans are cheaper than them
