“CON-ARTISTS!!! STEER CLEAR!”

Written on: 05/11/2013

My Dad paid £1400 to have a rebuilt engine on his Toyota. Was more than hard work to get the var back. Engine blew up after driving 14 miles. Had 2 independents look at the car... both said the old engine hadn't been taken out. Going to cost another £1,500 to get sorted out. Can't get the money back. Do not use these people. They have also set up under other companies, so just be careful… Read Full Review

We actually had contact from Watchdog
I think it was towards the end of last year
They were investigating, but said it was put on hold
Was hoping they would reopen
And yes, trading standards should be doing something

Seemed very helpful, spent £1500 on recon engine for my L200 only to find all they had done was botch my old engine which lasted for 800 miles. No reply to recorded delivery letters sent or phone calls. Also trading as engines-express. From doing my research I now have other means of contacting them.. Also trading on EBay as enginerecon… Read Full Review

“Not worth a star!”

Written on: 02/07/2013

DO NOT use this company! 247 engines.com replaced my engine and left me with over £400 worth of work needed to make it road- worthy afterwards. They had left the prop shaft unsealed and about to seize, brake cables joined with cable ties and several severed bolts in the fittings. Two weeks after paying for the work, my car wasn’t going to be returned, so I ended up travelling over 100 miles to recover it, to find it in a disgusting state, needing three hours of work to get it clean enough… Read Full Review

Contacted trading standards locally to we're garage is opperating. The response came from local citizens advice. I get impression if they receive enough complaints action will be taken.

Thanks for this. Worth a go. My local Citizen's Advice just referred me to a solicitor who wouldn't do anything without an address, but worth trying the Birmingham one, especially if they already have a reference.

I have just posted a similar review. After reading yours, I'm going to get my engine checked to see if they re-fitted the same one back in or not. As you have already contacted Trading Standards and Police, can you give me any details and I can follow it up and strengthen the case.

Hi I have also contacted trading standards via citizens advice and sent letter to 247engines.com as they suggested. The response from Citizens advice appears to imply if enough people complain to them they will take action. By the standard of there work that can't come quick enough.

Since geeting van back it appears steering rack had been loosened to drop engine out. However they failed to re-tighten bolts are fitting and the results could have been fatal.
