Public Reply Sent to Thank you for leaving your review of our business Mr Middleton, albeit disappointing to read I would like to respond as follows. I have enclosed the e mail I sent to you on the 27th of January 22. Thank you for you your patience whilst I fully investigated your complaint, I have now concluded my investigation and would like to respond as follows. I understand that you have owned the motorhome since July 2020 and at the time of purchase it was mechanically sound, from listening to the call recordings it appears that since July 2020 you have had the mass air flow meter and timing belt changed with another garage, you had reported to us that the engine was smoking excessively and asked that we take a look at this in addition to the base vehicle and habitation service. The technician carried out a diagnostic report which in turn advised that the vehicles mass air flow meter had failed and Jonathan advised you that this would need to be changed, you had advised that this had been changed along with the timing belt and since this work had been completed by another garage the engine has never been the same and it has smoked excessively. Given the background information that you have now kindly shared with us, our suggestion in the first instance would be to return to the original garage that you paid to complete the work, if this is not possible Jonathan suggested to you that it may be beneficial to book the motorhome into an engine specialist or a diesel specialist so further in-depth diagnostic work can be completed. We are of the opinion today that the timing belt has possibly slipped or the timing has not been setup correctly in the first instance, of course in the long-term this will only further damage the engine. I am more than happy to re-book your motorhome in for the timing belt and water pump to be replaced, my concern is that this will add considerable cost for you when you have already paid a garage to complete the work, should you wish to proceed with having the timing belt and water pump replaced then please do let me know and I will be happy to make the booking arrangements here, please be advised that the mass air flow meter may also need to be replaced. It was noted on the job sheet as requested for the habitation door to be looked at whist in with the technician for the habitation service, time was indeed spent to see if the fault could be rectified without the need to fully strip down the internal workings of the habitation door, this time was not charged for and the technician concluded after 45 minutes that the habitation door needed to be fully stripped down and it was likely that the locking mechanism would need to be replaced, our concern at this point was the availability of parts from Bessacar, obviously the failed part would need to be identified in the first instance, we would then look at the availability and cost of the replacement part and then provide you with a written repair estimate. To fully strip down the habitation door in order to provide the repair estimate would be 1.5 hours labour Mark. A starter battery test was carried out and the report was “charge/serviceable”, I am with you on this one in that we should have offered you the option to have the battery replaced, again I am happy to provide the written quotation for the starter battery to be replaced, I have not taken the liberty of doing this today as you mentioned it was being driven from here straight to another garage for the battery to be replaced, did this happen Mark? I did speak with Jonathan and to be fair he is always mindful of simply advising that a replacement is required at cost when the diagnostic was showing that the battery was serviceable. In terms of the air filter, again my own personal view is that we should have been in contact with you to give you the option, provide an estimate to drill out and replace the existing seized air box screws and advise you that there is a possibility of the airbox being damaged which in turn would need replacing, we did not do this of course which is unacceptable. I will ask that the “Gold” service sheet is forwarded to you under separate cover, this will of course detail the work that has been carried out to your motorhome. In terms of the habitation service, we advised you that the smoke alarm was out of date and needed replacing, this was the actual unit and not the battery, the gas bottle regulator was also out of date and required replacing. I do agree with you that we should have offered an estimate for these items to be replaced and I will come onto why I feel this process has failed. We do not carry out any damp repairs on site, we are not a motorhome bodyshop and we contract any damp work out to a company based in Preston, any area’s of damp reading below 15% are acceptable and you should not be concerned about, often with a reading of 20% or under we would advise to put the heating on as it is often little more than condensation due to the motorhome being stood for long periods of time. If the reading is in excess of 20% or around a window for example we would want to further check the seal of course, this may lead to a replacement seal being fitted. Again I agree with you that this should have been fully explained to you in advance of you collecting your motorhome. It was unfair that Gavin was put in this situation, by no means am I making any excuses Mark but Greg who would normally be liaising directly with you whilst your motorhome was in for the service was off and poorly with COVID, Greg fully understands the habitation service process and I am confidant that had he of been in the office the experience would have been much better and to your satisfaction, Julie or Jonathan would deal with the base vehicle service and again having listened to the phone calls I am not going to make any excuses, I fully understand why you are sat feeling that you have been treated with contempt, it is not an acceptable level of service that you have received from my business and I sincerely apologise to you.
Wow-what can I say, a fantastic team, bought my first new Motorhome and the help I received was fantastic. I would recommend you go to them first for your requirements nothing was any bother. Ian Ridley

Having just bought a VW Camper from TMC I can honestly say what an excellent customer service and attention to detail they have. From the first phone call to Gavin who is such a gentleman and nothing was too much trouble answering all of my questions and there were a few? How professional and genuine he was. I’m sure he is a massive credit to the company. When we collected the vehicle Greg made every effort of explaining how things work yet again nothing was to much trouble and he spent a couple of hours going over everything. He was very professional, with excellent knowledge and has an excellent way of getting things across so you understand. I would also like to say the finish of the detailing work was of the highest quality too👍. In all the years experience I have in buying vehicles this company has to be the best experience me and my wife have had, it really has a family feel and everyone we met were so friendly and courteous. If asked if I would recommend TMC I would without any doubt ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Thank you all again team we are made up with our Van Regards Allan

We have bought our last 5 cars from the Tottington Motor Company over the last 20+ years. We always shop around before changing our car, but always go back because of the quality vehicles (reasonably priced), excellent service and after sales support. Five star!

Just purchased our Nissan juke from this company and couldn't be more delighted. Alan, the salesman who guided us through our purchase, bent over backwards to make sure we were completely satisfied. Thank you so much, the Rohmans

Thank you for leaving us a review!
We were a little apprehensive about buying a car online, however Paul at Tottington Motors was very helpful. The car was as described and all information provided. He also went the extra mile in trying to obtain information after the purchase of the vehicle, for which we were very grateful. We would deal with this company again .

Thanks Carole, we are pleased to hear you are happy with our service!
Upgrading from a caravan we found our first camper van on their website. Gavin was great answering every questions dn working with us to make sure that it was what we really wanted without actually seeing the van. On collection, the handover from Greg was very thorough and talked me through every little aspect with passion. in short, great company who care about the service they give their customer. Well done guys, we may well be back in the future when it comes to upgrading :-)

Thanks Chris for your review, we really appreciate your kind feedback!
This is our first motorhome, when we contacted TMC we spoke with Gavin who answered every question. When the motorhome was delivered what a fantastic nothing was too much trouble and a USB stick was left with all the information we required. We also had a follow up phone to make sure we was happy with everything, the customer service is excellent. It will be a bit of a journey but our motorhome will be returning for servicing and habitation checks. Would really recommend them.

Thank you Alan for your kind words, we are pleased to hear you are happy with our service and we hope to see you again in the future.
I have had dealings with the company before and that is the reason i was prepared to drive 400 miles to order and collect my new motorhome from them. At all times during the process nothing was too much trouble, Gavin was extremely accommodating. The handover was extremely detailed, a purpose written handbook, a USB stick with videos and much more on. With the knowledge that if I wasn't sure about something, all I need do was to pickup the phone. A big thanks to Greg who conducted the handover. The whole experience was FIRST CLASS!!!!!!!!
