Had issues with them, don’t recommend.

We bought a used van from T2T Car Sales Barrhead. Within 4 weeks of having it we ran into trouble and got the AA to bring it back to T2T Car Sales in Barrhead. The owner Alan has accused us of crashing the van (of which there was no evidence of) and said we should claim our insurance which of course we didn’t do.

We paid well over £2000 to Select Services Barrhead which is next door AddressUnit 1, 99 Blackbyres Rd, Barrhead, Glasgow G78 1TN to fix said issues.

We can provide all documents and pictures to affirm what has been posted here.

We have since taken the van to David Mylett Motor Engineers who has said they wouldn’t entertain a test drive as he recons the timing chain is ready to go and when it does it has the potential to wreck the engine. 

T2T Car Sales actually mostly sell used vans in Barrhead / Glasgow.

Moto Novo Finance

So just waiting on the insurance company coming out to check our pictures, invoices from Select Van Services Barrhead and all our documents.

MotoNovo Finance has said not to move the van, drive the van, park the van while incurring costs,  or hire any other van while they conduct their investigation. While not practical we will adhere to these terms.

Update 03/03/22

An independent engineer couldn’t say either way as Select Car Services had already changed the oil and fixed what could which meant there was no way to prove the van was damaged before we bought it. 

Independent Inspection

They have said the timing chain was ready to go and that is wear and tear. 

So we bought a van from T 2 T Car Sales Barrhead used it for a few months and its a dud. Finance company wont help so left with a van which is unusable.

T2T Car Sales Barrhead - Update

We took the van to several garages around Glasgow to replace the timing chain however no one would touch the van due to how fragile the timing chain was – It was ready to break. (see the David Mylett, Thornliebank report attached). 

The Top Garage

Based from 215 Strathclyde Street in Glasgow, Thomas took 4 days to take the engine out an replace the timing chain and sort out the issues we were having. It cost the cheap price of £881.02 for everything. Mileage 126883 at this point. So, so happy with the work Thomas done I highly recommend him and a few months on still no issues! See attached for the invoice and also their business card.
