“Stay away con-artists ”

Written on: 03/11/2014 by Zandera207 (1 review written)

I am mark Jenner I featured on bbc watchdog about this company they do not trade under the same laws and use there distance to rip people off by supplying unfit engines and real bad service . It took me 8months of chacing and hounding and after two engines they insisted the car went to them to sort . Which they took and age to sort and then come up with a false story of a bolt being in the engine and if they did not get £1000 in a week they would sell my car. I would like a clear outset of… Read Full Review

“They supply and fit reconditioned engines.”

Written on: 02/11/2014 by Stokes140 (1 review written)

They promise to supply and fit reconditioned engines but what you actually get is old engines that are bought from a scrapyard that are knackered, if you try to get your money back they refuse, they only deal in cash, what good professional business doesn't have a card machine these days, the answer to that is none because they have nothing to hide and not deceitful like these are, if a dealer only deals in cash that should set alarm bells ringing straight away, you stand no chance of a refund… Read Full Review

“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

These nasty people have ripped off many good people.
Watch BBC's "Watchdog" on how this "company" with low morals and contempt for you make you sick.
You will wait forever for what these NASTY people promise.

AVOID THEM AT ALL COSTS OR IT WILL COST YOU.

AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

QUICK SERVICE? DO EVERY DECENT PERSON A FAVOUR!

THESE PEOPLE ARE SLOWER THAN AN ANT WITH ASTHMA!

YOU WILL RECEIVE SLOW SERVICE AND A SCRAP ENGINE

WHICH IS DANGEROUS TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.

THE POLICE MUST BE INVOLVED WITH THEM.
