Canterbury branch is closed.
If it is true that the whole Company has gone then it means the Management Buy Out lasted 1 year.
Judging by the feeling of the Customers on MHF in the recent Threads it isn't a day to soon.

Hi

I can see no indication on the London Gazette website of any such administration. That said, I do not know how quickly the London Gazette is updated.

Thanks Russell, I knew that someone would know where to look!

So, just a rumour at the moment.

David

ps Karlb makes a valid point - how do people protect against losing deposits etc if the rumour were true? Does paying by credit card give any protection?

London Gazette is not updated that quickly! Website's don't always reflect either usually its a noticed pinned to door and closed doors etc.

If you don't need to pay more than £500 why do they always ask for more? Lowdhams were insistent on £1000.

A pal of mine works at the Newark branch I spoke to him last week and he was under the impression that he will soon be looking for another job.
From what he tells me there sales have gone into melt down especially new vehicles

I don't think it is just Brownhills as things will get much worse before they get better!! That is what the money experts were saying a month ago :cry:
Today I went to a very large national (not regional) Distribution Centere for a leading fashion clothing retailer and I was very surprised how quiet it was and the lack of activity.
I have been there many times and I have never seen it like this :cry:
Some of the guys were telling me that they were quite worried for their jobs and believe me this is a BIG Brand name.

Am i the only person on the planet that can`t complain about the service that i have received from Brownhills Newark. I must add that it was after sales service as due to poor trade in offered we ended up at Cannock branch and did a deal with £2k more beneficial to us.

With all these closures i feel that it is us the customers who will be worse off. Less choice, certainly not lower prices, further to travel for warranty claims and servicing etc.
I can see that manufacturers may purchase sites in an effort to maintain sales. And why not. Cut out the middle man and save us all some cash. ok another usefull pipedream.

I'm not defending anyone but it's easy to say things like this. It's very unfair if it's untrue as people will avoid them which could thoeretically put them in this position.
The loser's then would be people with warranties etc.
I personally think that rumour's should not be printed only fact's particularly on matter's like this.

No axe to grind

so it looks like bownhills will not be at the show then :?:

my mate has got a r v of them and it needs loads of jobs to be done i feel sorry for him as it was 92k
Don't you think that you shouldn't make assumptions like that without being certain of the facts? At this stage it appears to be nothing more than an unfortunate rumour and your post will most certainly not help your mate or Brownhill's future business prospects. Both the topic and the content of the thread could have been better and more fairly handled from the outset.

Got it in one. These are hard times and survival is the main concern. It is not in our best interest for any of these firms to further monopolise the market. We would be well and truly stitched up then. Even less pretence of aftersales service would be on show.

We're doomed I tellye, doooomed!! Don't panic though.
