      It’s not even a cancel and reorder it’s just an admin on one system.  My dealer phoned me that without asking they changed the order to save me £400.  I would’ve asked but they did it for me.  The order date hasn’t changed on Skoda’s system so it couldn’t have been “cancelled” or the date would’ve changed.

      I can see why if a car was ordered 2 quarter previous why they wouldnt want to but if it’s within weeks or a month or 2 why not it doesn’t cost anyone money it’s admin.

      This needs rectifying at Motability there needs to be a policy of the AP being a cap so if it goes down we are protected especially given the quite long waits for cars these days too and if it goes up then you pay the price at the time of the order.  It’s all well and good saying you should just pay what you ordered but considering AP’s are really high now vs the past and considering how much money Motability are sitting on these days I think it’s quite literally the least they can do.  If electricity companies can run a tariff with a cap and swallow the loss if prices shoot up when they have no control over the market then Motability who in some way have control over the finances can look after the customer instead of the banks who own it.

        Tbh there are a lot of pants companies put there. The guys that fitted ours we locked out at one point because we were peed off with them. Bot different for us as this was a housing association but it was still a very large local heating, plumbing and electrical company. They do worse work than me as an amateur more often than not and they’re just as bad doing work on private homes too.

        I’d go look at review sites and also Google the company do some background research.

        To my mind if you explain your requirements and they just ignore it then they lose immediately if they’re doing that now are they going to listen to feedback during the install?

            Thanks everyone yes very relieved. Bit miffed where they glossed Friday now the bathroom door doesn’t close at all it hits the frame, so that and the safe lock still needs doing. Gotta chase that up now.

            Hopefully should be getting level access front and rear doors soon and a nice big patio area too. Got a lovely blue composite front door coming I’m thinking of dressing the front door up to look like a TARDIS now ????

                Ok just about done MUCH happier this time, close to perfect.

                Moved drain so don’t stand on it whilst showering

                Removed coving and panelled to ceiling, didn’t use stupid bits of trim that stick out in corners, completely redid ceiling looks gorgeous this guy listened to everything we had to say and also proactively suggested stuff on his own.

                Door still needs fixing as it doesn’t stay shut and needs a disabled friendly lock as just had a bolt at present so not safe.

                Now new level access front and rear composite doors, ramps and a patio to be built next. I’m going to ask for one of those side access toilet seat bidets next as they look so handy over struggling in pain.

                Here’s a photo ceiling looks incredible

                  You can dry stuff in a heat pump dryer you can’t in a condenser as it runs at a much lower temp. It’s made a huge difference for us anyway can dry just about anything now even wool.

                  If they’re relatively recent windows I’d be very surprised thought it was a legal thing to have trickle vents now, maybe they’re internal ones.

                      Have you got your trickle vents open on your windows? That might be enough to stir the air. As soon as you said clothes dryer I knew that’s what it’d be.

                      Can I offer a bit of advice? If you’ve got the room for one get yourself a heat pump tumble dryer, we got a sub £400 Beko one a few years ago costs us about £30 a month to run with 2 adults 2 teens plus pets so it gets used a lot, every day for sure it’s so cheap to use vs a condenser dryer that it’s more efficient than a clothes horse.

                          Unfortunately they wouldn’t go for that either they’ve been quite unhelpful.

                          Well it’s looking better now dug the drain out and found the old waste pipe that wasn’t replaced was angled upwards to outside so good job we told them to replace it as last time he just connected to the old pipe.

                          Where he dug the floor up he found no evidence of damp proofing so he’s put bitumen down today and hell latex Monday.

                          He’s also started boarding the walls off again but this time he’s putting proper insulation behind the ply.

                          Also the framing looks a lot better too

                            Just filled central heating up from the loop in airing cupboard so that means there’s no anti freeze in it now, hilarious can’t wait for the heat pump to get destroyed next cold weather….

                              Top tip stay away from the low bridges lol seen waaay too many boats crashed into the.

                              Just go slow and enjoy the view there’s so many fools that race about. Haven’t done boat hire in forever it gets so busy the thought makes me ill and then outside the better months the weather is poo so we tend not to go should really it’s a lot of fun even going on one of the broads cruises.

                              Talking of broads cruise and byre valley railway is awesome and miniature worlds in Wroxham too if anyone wants something away from a boat for a bit.

                              My kids would live in miniature worlds if they could

                              Enjoy

                                  Don’t get me started on the toilet had soooo many arguments over that must be doc m, what’s the difference between doc m and a comfort height if the height is the same, oooooooh no definitely not suitable.

                                  Asked for a back to wall toilet but apparently no one makes a doc m back to wall, seeing as they’re panelling the wall why not fit a frame and floating toilet my first thought as only needs like 12cm depth or so but no.

                                  Last argument guy from HA sent in text to wife if they fit a non standard toilet they can’t support it if it breaks going forward as they’ve never used them before. There’s me thinking nearly all close coupled loos work in a similar way how advanced could a loo be that they won’t work on it going forward. Really mad it’s like we’ll if you’re getting what you ask for then I’m going to stick this threat in to frighten u off

                                  On top of this heating company just turned up to take some pipes out that they left hanging out of the ceiling last time, no appointment, no call just bang bang on the door and now need furniture moved to lift floorboards upstairs…..

                                  I swear never using the grant again it’s more hassle than its worth 21 working days since they started work now

                                    After a good start ended up with a different salesman ordering and quite frankly I can’t stand him, I dunno if me but every email he’s sent me comes across as really arsey. Now I’m infamous at misreading intent so I’m super careful before jumping yo conclusions but even so one is not amooosed.

                                    Ordered 30/12 he called me up around 4th to say he’d amended order to save me £400 since then I’ve asked twice for a build date and he’s been quite I’m going to say it, rude.

                                      Might be worth an application for a grant if your income isn’t high. They were pretty good listening to me about my needs even agreeing to double the award when challenged over it

                                        I think he fixed everything to the wall then cut the ply why anyone would do that tho?

                                        Even using a multitool freehand you could do better than that lol

                                              Yeah as he was ripping it out I could see all the awful stuff he’d done that was hidden like that awful plumbing

                                              My wife could’ve done a better job of the plumbing than that.

                                              He’s stripped a load out today and remade all that plumbing it’s all fixed to the wall properly straight as an arrow and he’s redone it carefully so there’s no need for that stupid bit of boxing in next to the toilet.

                                              He’s going to see if he can move the drain as its right where I stand under the shower and came close to falling over on it last night. They also used an akw trap that can’t cope with the flow from a mixer shower only with an electric shower so he’s going to see if he can get a different one.

                                              He does seem to care about his work which is great

                                                Hope the spec is better than the ICE models I’ve got a 3008 GT at the moment and aside from lane keep assist that stays OFF as I’ve yet to find one that doesn’t try to kill you head on into oncoming traffic on unmarked C roads.

                                                No heated seats the one thing I’d never ever do without it’s just a cheap thing to cheap out on.

                                                As for size it’s passable it blows the awful awful awful DS3 away I was forced to drive around in for a month boots nice size back seat is wide enough for 3 teens or 2 teens plus dog front has enough room for adult plus dog in footwell if need be.

                                                Overall I’d be concerned about practicality vs the Enyaq being the Sportline plus is £400 cheaper

                                                  We usually buy the pap special takeaway I’m not old enough but cid and chips for £6 plus slightly smaller portions just about right size for me.

                                                  As nice as the local coastal chippies are here I’ve found you cannot beat the battered cod at Morrisons cafe in Fakenham it’s almost free lol and it’s soooo good. Even cod at Wetherspoons was really nice recently too.

                                                  French’s and Plattens at Wells next the sea, Holt Fishbar in Holt as well as both local Eric’s restaurant and takeaway also Wills Plaice at East Runton all really nice.

                                                  Number one in Cromer is often good but had some bad experiences there too but £3.50 for a battered sausage….

                                                  It is nice to not cook and have fish and chips occasionally
