Hi Dave and Andy,

On the wrong side of the channel at the moment to sort anything I'm afraid. Where are ATM based or do they have a website that I can check when I return ??

Cheers

Simon - i'm having a wild guess here that you're after Lakes Volvo breakers :

http://www.lakes4volvo.co.uk/

The "ATM" Andy was referring to i'm pretty sure means "At The Moment" and because of the quote Andy included, i know that was referring to Lakes. I can see how the confusion may have happened, especially if you read the post quickly!

Hope i've guessed right and you are repatriated soon!

Dave,

I did wonder if that was the case which means hopefully they won't be closed by the time I get back which should be in a couple of weeks

I've heard they're shutting up shop at the end of the month Simon, hopefully you'll just about make it!

Might be worth an email or phone call now to check that firstly they have the bits you need/want and secondly that they will hang on to them to give you the chance to get them.

Good luck Simon!

If it comes down to it, as a one-off i could possibly go over there and collect/store the doors for a short time for you if you arranged payment with them so all i had to do was collect.

I can put an old duvet down in the back of the car to protect them but would need some help to load them on pick-up.

Yes I did mean Lakes, I would suggest you call rather than email as you'll get a better response

Hi Andy,

Thanks for the advice about calling them I heard that is the best way to contact them but have little to no voice service and only limited Broadband a few times a day

Cheers

I have the basics of an idea.

Andy - correct me if i'm wrong, your car and Simons car are the same colour? If so, what's the colour code please?

Simon - which doors do you need and is it just doors, no other panels needed?
