“Do not use this company!!!”

Written on: 30/06/2014 by jesshope (1 review written)

Ordered an engine over a year ago and never got it. Have tried to get my refund back ever since without any luck. They seem to cleverly hide their money so creditors are not able to get their money back. I've got a CCJ against them, have contacted Watchdog, Trading Standards etc, I will continue to try and get my money back and spread the word about them. Please stay away from this company and do not use them… Read Full Review

“Paid £1500 up front -sent wrong engine - engine returned ”

Written on: 14/06/2014 by Doveyfisher (1 review written)

I paid for a replacement engine for my Audi up front - £1500 - They sent the wrong engine so I sent it back but a promised refund has not materialised. Five times they have assured me the cheque is in the post but nothing has arrived. They refuse to speak to me or return my calls. The stress of this is making me ill. They are evil, heartless people who take advantage of decent people. Richard Wales… Read Full Review

Bonjour à tous les internautes. Attention aux Français, qui seraient tentés d'acheter dans cette entreprise. Ne faites jamais de virement bancaire. Un ami de ma fille a payé 1300 euros et n'a jamais reçu son moteur. Ce sont des escrocs.

Can you all get in cantact with me, i'm getting them on court to see if I could get my money back, but if we could join all together it will be the best.

I've been in contact with a solicitors office in England named Morgan Rose Solicitors and we could get all together and make a group complaint.

“DO NOT BUY FROM IDEAL ENGINES. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED”

Written on: 10/02/2014

I purchased a replacement engineer for a VW polo from Ideal Engines.... possibly the worst decision I have ever made. After waiting almost 3 weeks (after being promised delivery within 4 days)I received the WRONG engine. They didn't seem to care about their mistake, and I had to wait for another week to receive the correct engine, which had very obviously not had the quality tests carried out that they promised. Not surprisingly the engine lasted for less than 2 weeks before a major problem… Read Full Review

“Quality Guaranteed”

Written on: 06/12/2013 by PereiraMartins (1 review written)

One thing I will say about ideal engines. They have extremely good quality products. When my Toyota corolla needed a new engine I contacted them as one of my friends had his car done up with them. Now I was a bit worried as they have some negative reviews on net. I will say go to the warehouse and find out yourself. Ideal Engine fixed my Corolla in no time and I am a happy customer… Read Full Review
