At the beginning of this year I ordered a travel blanket for the Tourer from Natal Caravans and Marine, our local caravan dealership in Pietermaritzburg having burned down.

When I tried to fit it a couple of days before going on a trip to Hluluwe, I found that there was no way of tying it down at the bottom. So off I went on our trip sans blanket.

On our way home I detoured at Natal Caravans and pointed the problem out to them. We discussed how it was to be fixed which they undertook to have done.

I collected the “fixed” blanket from them about a month ago (bearing in mind that I live in Hilton and they are in Pinetown some 80 km away). 

When I tried to fit it yesterday I found that whoever fixed it had gone on a mission of his own and did not do exactly what had been discussed with the result that there still is no way oy securing it properly at the bottom. So off I go again on Thursday again with no Travel blanket.

It seems to me that the work is done by a third party who is moonlighting from home.

Now NC&M say the work was not done by them and I shouldn’t hold them responsible. I would have thought that at the very least, with the travel blanket having been defective the first time, they would at least have checked the fitting before returning it to me.

Now let’s see how long it takes to  get my money back from them - over R2k...☹️

Not the sort of service one would expect from what is by all accounts a reputable dealership.

Ai....jammer dat mens so moet sukkel. Is die travel blanket nie maar dieselfde as al die ander Sprite reeks nie....Splash, Swing, Sprint?

Ek weet nie? Die een het nie die Sprite/Tourer Logo op nie.

Ek sal bietjie by Loftus in Johannesburg hoor, maar moet eers my geldjies by NC&M terug hey.

Ja dit is nogal 'n uitdaaging as iets wat jy koop so uitdraai.  Ek sou van die begin af my geld terug gevra het met die dat dit nie die eerste keer gepas het nie.

Ek hoop jy kom reg met die geld terug.

Dit is onderandere juis sulke goed wat Tian die Jurgens fabriek eienaar oorgepraat het.  Hoe kan hy baklei oor goeie diens lewer as die Campworld takke nie eers 'n effort insit met dit nie.

Mens moet vir Ina by die fabriek bel en sulke diens raporteer.  Ek glo Tian sal dit gebruik as skiet goed tydens die een of ander handelaars konverensie.

Het ook n kombers bestel vir die nuwe wa.

Hy kry hom op voor ek daar weg ry.

Al die ekstras sal ook eers getoets word.

Ek bly nie vêr van hulle nie maar ek betaal vir diens.

En het nie tyd om op en af te ry nie.

Ek het al die travel blankets van Alluminium and Canvas Concepts gesien.....dit lyk baie nice, lekker dik "ge-pad" Kan hulle ook oorweeg. Ek dink hulle is daar naby Kempton karavane

Wat sê hulle..... sal die een beter pas?????  Is dit nie maar dieselfde produk wat jy in Natal gekoop het nie.  Die een wat moes verander word.

Eks bly jul is gelukkig. Die verskille kom seker in noudat Howling moon nie meer standaard vir die hele groep maak nie....elke tak soek maar sy eie supplier op. Ek wonder of dit weer op die ou einde weer so gaan wees as Jurgens weer goed op die been is?

Him Louvan,

 

You can refer NC&M to the Consumer Protection Act, which refers to Part H from number 53-57 (Consumers Rights to fair value, Quality and safety. Purchased Products to be the Correct Working Order)

Most suppliers get scared when customers use this against them and they are very quick to return your money.

NC& Marine are regarded as a supplier to you, so don't let them come with that story that they never defaulted.

Good luck
