I need to start blogging my experience and firstly I need to start to make those with some degree of power aware of some things. This may not be that effective but like a lot of parents I find myself in need to vent my frustrations somewhere. This ‘Service’ is really quite shocking. It also is not a man vs woman thing – many mothers are also left asking whats the point with this service as they cannot force bad lads to pay support. Instead they miscalculate and trump up collection fees for those who do pay directly but have their partners complain. Without checking evidence properly the weight of the law is brought to you in text format at 8 in the morning..pay or we will send the debt collection round and you will have to appear in court..I kid you not, these guys are not nice people. They shoot first and ask questions later. This smells like a nasty way of the world I thought we had banished especially in this country.
Well this is the start of a tough period for me as I try and pay for my daughter to grow up.
Here is the letter to my local MP to see what his office have to say on the matter..
It has taken a lot of effort and loss to report the awful now named Get Smart Carz outfit 1 crowland road just outside peterborough on the a47 near eye.
Here is the REVIEW of GET SMART CARZ
They have completely changed branding to escape responsibilities. When asked the very same sales guy or manager said its not the same company repeatedly stone walling. this is what will happen if you deal with them and need them to honour anything. Our example cannot be the only one they were trying to escape from.
Here is the SAME company and the review of them. Suffice to say they have not changed staff nor stock nothing but the sign – so its the same guys. Be warned and find your car elsewhere.
Another trick the old company did was always say they were cash only as their machine was not working but its another sign that the company structure was not good. So just how bad does it get that you need to rebrand ?
It seems Gsmart cars is not in good shape legally :
“Get smart carz it sees won’t be there for long they have now issues with their standing with companies house.”
So this is the previous registrant director. Ali worked for a47 cars. It may not be possible to go after a47 cars through a silly legal loophole but you can go after the company that screwed you over.
“Group friends into custom lists to avoid a one-size-fits-all approach. You can create additional lists that are subsets of your existing Friends lists. Use these lists to filter certain content, either in individual posts or in your overall privacy settings. You can create and manage these lists on the Friends management page while you’re signed in to Facebook. You’re the only one who can see the titles and users in your custom lists.
To create a custom Friends list, go to your Friends management page (Account > Edit Friends) and click Create a List. In the dialog window, enter a list name and click the profile pictures from those shown to select friends to add to the list. Click Create List to save the selections. To add or remove people in the list at any time, return to the friendship management page and either select the list from the left or mouse over a specific user and use the Edit Lists menu to toggle the checkmarks of which lists that user belongs to.”

The company is trying to shed its awful online reviews by changing its name to get smart carz.
Get smart carz review
Not to be confused with the scrap metal cars operation of a similar name. These guys are close to the mc donalds and the motel – where they actually use the car parking to hold cars in transit I imagine to the annoyance of those businesses who pay for those parking spots.
We test drove a car and found there to be a faulty rear parking sensor and a missing locking nut. Both of these items were promised to be rectified and noted on the recipt which can be classed as a legal document as can an email or even written on the back of a napkin ! Any paper work can be taken into account of a promise or evidence of an agreement. If it were just verbal then we had that and both myself and partner were witness to that.
Apparently the locking nut was in action (on its way) from a main saab dealer. As of this point in time this appears to be a lie. 3 weeks later no sign and no word from a47 cars – they are hard to reach many excuses and some numbers simply blocked us from calling. The parking sensor was supposed to be covered in the warranty, he enquired or so he said to the warranty company and they said it would be covered. We took the car and paid under these regular agreements made in good faith and we didnt have much reason to think that they would not want to protect their reputation. We had it in writing as well that if the parking sensor was not covered by the warranty then they would do the work. So we will keep you posted on the story as it unfolds if you click subscribe.
If it turns out that they do the work it will be because we hounded them and have had to take some legal action the small claims court is now more practcal for such disputes. You can find out more about that here.
In conclusion currently I cannot recommend them as a vehicle supplier. If they do turn around and make good that will be made clear in this review.
