From my experience as an eBay trader, they more often then not, side with the buyer over the seller, so open a case? Do they not offer a guarantee? Most reputable breakers offer at least 60 days nowadays and should also cover the return postage if the part is faulty!!

I would take it further and then find a more reputable company to deal with in the future.

They did their best to end the 45 days of Paypal protection...
They told me to get the gearbox back for full refund but this took a long time due to Xmas and New year period.

It is obvious that i will not use them again.

I've seen the one in Aire street as I've driven past. They have had one MGF sat there for months and months, partially stripped. Dunno if its still there, its been a few weeks since I've been that way.

I got a loom plug from them once, had to stand on the bonnet of a ZT to reach into an MGF that was sat on top of something else, to rip it out. Mean while the young gentleman on Asian appearance watched my every move, he then wanted 10 for it!! I got it for less than half that!

Me too. Whenever I phoned to ask where my order was they say it had been damaged so they were waiting for another one to arrive. Then when I asked for a refund they said it would take a couple of days for the manager to authorise it and now they claim they have new admin staff and that my order number isn't on the system. And so it goes on...

Fortunately there are some good breakers around that have been nothing less than perfect in providing other parts I've needed...

Many cars arrive at breaker yards on a flatbed or with a tow so no way could the operators know if their various parts are fit for re-use with most of the cars in their premises. So, a gearbox looks alright. They take a chance sending it 'blind' untried hoping that they will have a satisfied customer. That is bad business practice and a good way to destroy any goodwill a business may have in no time as the word gets around.

During my fifty odd years of employment I worked all over the UK and came in contact with many folks from a wide range of backgrounds and customs. There is no doubt that in some areas culture and background standards leave something to be desired. Thus I am both cautious and careful when necessary.

Here in Gloucester area we have a few car breakers who I use and all are good generally but one operates on a very fine and fair basis. Money back or replace no questions asked. That breaker never sells stuff over the net or anywhere, strictly parts only and remove them yourself on site. Those seeking parts come from all over the country as they know they will get good value. They are very helpful and will provide a range of facilities and jacking services if you ask nicely. H and S issues mean you cannot jack up a car yourself now as I have done for years. If they see you entering with a trolley jack, they mark your card and provide a staff member with a jack. An ambulance was called there one time when I was removing parts. Some poor sod had not been sufficiently careful. Easily done so been very careful at all times. If you are working under a car and some heavyweight eastern European decides to take a running short cut over that car ... asking for trouble. How did I know he was an eastern European? He had earlier asked to borrow one of my tools. I loaned it to him with a request that he did not leave the country before returning it ... He did not get the joke ... some people eh ... mind you, language barriers may play a part there ...

Parts are marked up when you pay for them and on the few occasions I've returned one not up to scratch, refund or replacement without hesitation. My father first took schoolboy me there in the early 1950s when needing parts for this car, which is still alive and well ... unlike my dear old Dad...



Back luck to our Grecian OPer ... However, there are some good, reliable folks and traders out there, the trick is finding them...

I too can recommend these chaps. Used them myself only last Saturday (17/08/13).
Couple of great lads to talk to, and knowledgeable.
Got myself a set of balance and power vis motors. Ended up talking for around an hour about all things MG Rover.

Having gone way beyond a joke in listening to the excuses of why MGRover Spares in Hull cannot provide me with a refund I am now about to start taking them to small claims court to recover my money.
Can you believe one of the latest reasons why they cannot process my refund was because I must have ordered something during the three months this year when their computers weren't working and they've lost the paperwork they did by hand!
Anyway, along with the legal claim I will also be sending a copy of my grievance to the Trading Standards Authority as it appears it is not just me that has had troubles with these people taking money and never shipping goods. To this end, are any other people out there with similar experiences of them prepared to send a little synopsis of their own grievance that can be compiled with the letter to Trading Standards?
Just for clarity, I am referring to MG ROver Spares Ltd of Air Street, HU5 1RR.

Have you made note of all the times you tried contacting them regarding your order? I spent months being fobbed off by them with all manner of pathetic excuses and then logged a claim through the Money Claims OnLine website. They showed how useless they really are by ignoring all the letters sent to them from the local court in Hull and it was only when I had been given consent from the judge to instruct Bailiffs to go and seize goods that they called me and sent a cheque. Stupidly for them, if they had done that at the first time of asking they wouldn't have had to pay for all my legal fees too!
It's a really straight forward process to follow but if you need any more information feel free to drop me a message as I'll be glad to help.

Good experience of RoverBreakers Hull

I've been to their St.James St premises many times and have had nothing but positive things to say about them. They have a good range of our cars available and the parts they sell are at a reasonable price. In view of the variability of parts between model years I think it best to take the broken version of what you want to ensure you get the right part. I would say that this is the same with every scrapyard one visits.

I appreciate that this is a lot more difficult when you buy online.

The proprietors are not Pakistani but Kurdish, from Kurdistan, an area of northern Iran, Iraq and southern Turkey.

I for one am pleased that they are only 25 miles drive away from here.

Unhappy Avoid Rover Breakers of Hull

Had a bad experience with this company. They quoted one price then said this was a mistake and quoted twice as much. They described the (interior) good as being in "excellent" condition - they were not - in fact they were unusable and then gave me the runaround. Best avoided.

I bought some rear facing seats for a Montego from a company in Hull called something like "Viking Rover Spares" back in 1998, I paid 150 for some "genuine" ones, what arrived were cheap aftermarket ones that would have cost about 150 new. I went to the local breakers and paid 30 for a genuine set that were even in the correct cloth.
