    Sounds like the other guy's having a laugh too.
    Carry on with your claim, is my advice; you'll have twice the entertainment for your money.

    Crook would have charged in excess of going rate like say 1200 for 3 miles, but 120 is going rate (cheap actually).

    PS - If you could easily sue people for stress and wasted time, you'd never leave the court room...NLUK would have you in there daily.

    If I were you I’d check how much that costs - otherwise you’d have new thread about lawyers “overcharging” you

    You're both as stupid as each other.
    Honestly though NLUK and answer this honestly.

    Next time you take you're Bentley in for a service, and they offer to give you a lift to the office then charge you £100 because its taken one of their employees time and petrol to take you will you pay it?

    Or would you say **** me - if I you'd told me it was £100 I wouldn't have bothered?

    BTW - a few months ago my car had gearbox problems. Garage showed up, stuck it on trailer job done. Free. Not unusual.

    Given that you are allegedly regularly signing on for unemployment benefit - not much.

    I guess there is a law that states that you need to inform a client how much a service will cost, before you provide the service... Not saying that in the described circumstances going to tribunal was the best/smartest decision, but if the garage wasn't clear about the cost of the service and make it look like it would be for free (since OP was gonna make repairs on their garage) I believe OP has grounds for a claim!
