I had my NCT booked for today, and was happy that my car would pass, but then disaster struck! I went to the garage to get it washed in one of those automatic washers, about an hour before I was due to take the test. The car wash machine threw me off its tracks and into the wall. My wing mirror is broken off and all the side is scraped to bits...could I have any worse car luck :-(

oh no thats terrible, what bad luck - is the garage going to pay for the damage to your car?

Yeah thank god! the manager was really nice about it. As opposed to the car wash attendant who tried to blame me! its just such a pain, I have to get a quote, had to cancel the NCT (the garage will cover the cancellation fees too thank god) give it into them and then wait a few weeks until their head office pay up O:|

was it one of the really long ones where the car is on the conveyor belt thing and is wheeled through each stage?

sure if ya didnt laugh you would cry!! Good the hear they are paying for it! My friend a couple of months back took her boyfriends lovely 05 BMW to the car wash with the intentions of getting it nice and sparkly for him and browie points for her....... Except the guy who washed the car for her had a small pebble in the brush and stratched the Sh*t of the lovely BMW!!! The garage at first would not take responsibilty for the damage as they claimed to have a sign up on the wall "cars washed at owners risk", but luckily my friend new the owner of the garage well and went past management to speak directly to him. He paid for the car to be completely buffed and resprayed..... she never washed her BF's car again!!!!! :o0 :o0 :o0 :o0 :o0 :o0
