13.03.17 – Early start to the week, first job was a trailer with a blown airbag in Grays at 04:55. Once there, our technician was asked to jump start a truck too. Two jobs done before 8am! Back at the workshop, new clutch fitted to an ERF, ready to be delivered back to the customer in Dagenham. Day ended with a quick indicator bulb job over in Hockley.
14.03.17 – Start the day with a n/s side light not working in Maldon. Back at the workshop we have a vehicle needing a new headlight. Two further jobs today needing computer diagnostics and one PMI in Basildon.
15.03.17 – Quick non-start job to start the day, driver on the road within the hour. Fairly quiet at the workshop but we have a farm trailer with an air leak in Chelmsford and an Iveco over-heating in Rettendon. Final job of the day is all the way over in Twickenham, a Renault with a faulty night heater.
16.03.17 – Coach comes into the workshop with a brake fault. Found brake seized and new slack adjuster required; this will be with us for a few days. Recovery of a Mercedes from Harlow to Dagenham. Meanwhile, another vehicle comes into the workshop with a gearbox leak. Final job of the day, faulty indicator in Brentwood.
17.03.17 – Busy one on St. Patrick’s Day. Early recovery from Colchester to Chelmsford swiftly followed by a trailer with a loose mud-wing in Tilbury. Technician goes straight onto a Daf stuck on the M25, J27 with a braking fault. This one needs recovery to Hoddesdon. From here the recovery truck goes onto Shoeburyness to collect an 8-wheel roro and recover it to Thurrock. Parts are in for the farm trailer with the air-leak, back out to Chelmsford to fit a levelling valve. Back at the workshop, coach with brake fault still being worked on and an Iveco comes in with a wheel bearing hub seal fault and a caliper seizing. Also needs a new mirror.
18.03.17 – Early start to Saturday, trailer with no lights in Borehamwood. The coach with the brake fault is complete and collected. The Iveco is completed and can be picked up by the customer on Monday. Quick job in Basildon on a Daf with several curtain tears. Repaired on site.
