those going to advance automotive be WARNED
« on: July 18, 2005, 11:39:36 AM »
yes don't start me on Hopkins eithor....  
  A lot of places charge the first hour of labour  even if it's a partial hour use.  I wouldn't see it as a major if I'd have been in that situation.  If the job took 10 mins to complete,  then you have paid for someone's expertise in that area or their knowledge in the field.  You obviously were not able to do it hence supplying all the parts and taking them to Advanced to egt them to install or setup.  Look at that hour as a flat fee.  You got your job done that otherwsie unable to do.  Did you enquire about the price at the time.  they obviously would have discussed it with you atthe time,  so why is it you feel obligated to come heer and bleat your story bringing these forums down in the process?  
  Take it up with Advanced,  we're not a soap box.
If you try and don\'t succeed, cheat. Repeat until caught. Then lie.

PM me if you want some contact data for some honest operators mate.

No point posting and flaming Advanced on here - its never worked for anyone in the past.

OH btw bcnr34, how do you figure Mr Hopkins owes NZ creditors money when he hasnt been running a business in NZ for over 2 years??  Sure he did a few questionable deals but things got alot worse after he left lol

I thought that responsibility would fall on its former GM or has he passed the buck (I mean bills) ??

this thread is now locked.

RH9,

after it seems that "Red Rooster" is another one of your accounts(3rd or 4th including "Mark Todd"). And they only seem to be used for **** stirring, you will now be banned from the Forums. I'm not willing to give you any warnings over this as it's getting pretty pathetic.
AFK.

ROFL!!!

You really have NO idea about anything, do you????

Would now be a bad time to inform people Hopkins has applied to be stricken off the NZ Companies registry so he won't have to pay everyone he owes and ripped off?

Would it also be a bad time for me to start listing CUSTOMERS whose parts HOPKINS TOOK to Aussie with him, even when the parts were all paid for?

What job did you have done anyway?

I have no complaints, they got some brake pads delivered for me a few hours before closing time on a Friday. I was more than happy.

It is the responsibility of the company owners to pay their debts(since they take all the profits). It is out of the control of the Manager who had already left when the business was closed by the owners.

Our do you just like bagging everyone because you don't seem to have anything positive to say on this forum.

Gzzmos, are you nothing but an advanced "lap dog"?

What technical knowledge do you posess? I read alot of RH9's info before I joined the forums and have always found him to call "a spade a spade".  He gave me some great advice and my 34 is going from strength to strength because of it.

Enough from me on the topic

thanks Jimmy,  think this is a good move to make.  the last three threads in the mod section are here due to aliases of Andy.
