    So surprized to see someone having problems getting money back from Itchy Feet. They were great when we dealt with them both Eric & Michael gentlemen. Pity if they are letting their standards down

    Yes, saw that!

    I can't imagine it's done their credibility any good.

    I suppose as it's daytime TV not so many people will have seen it.

    I certainly would not deal with them after seeing it!

    today on bbc one they have a program called get the sheriffs . they collect money. today they had to collect from a m/home company. who owed a customer £30.000. he brought a large RV from them. but had a heart attack , so could not drive it again. the m/home company called itchy feet took it back and sell it for him. it cost him £70.000. they told him they give him £6o.000 but would sell it for £65.000 they did sell it eventually , but they only gave him £30.000 because they took a van in part exchange. so he waited till they sold that. and once again they said he would have to wait because they had taken another van in part exchange. so he took them to court. itchy feet was told to pay. they did not so he got the heavy mob the sheriffs to get his money. he got some. but itchy feet took it back to court but lost again. so they paid up. but it took 18 months to get it. so don't itchy feet sell your pride and joy.

    yes I saw it. they are just up the road from me. they were really rude to the camera crew. and they made that poor man wait all that time for his money. I wont ever deal with them.

    I think @Christian Kelly might know something about them - not personally but professionally. :)

    Sorry of this is not the case Christian.

    Just watch the programme and it is the Sywell depot, what a PR disaster for the company, it might end up costing them more in the long run. :unsure:
