Emergency Services

Belts, Plugs, Filters, Fuels, Oils, additives etc..... Told you this might morph into servicing and service items.

Emergency Services

Post by amarshall »

Just a thought - something we used to have in the Scottish Kit Car Club was a list of members + addresses + phone numbers where tea, sympathy, tools, workshops, spares and/or a lift home etc. could be found by members in trouble. Would that be a good idea for this board ?

Personally, I'm willing to offer tea, sympathy, tools and a lift to any Lotus owner who finds themselves with a broken car in my area.

I could certainly manage the tea sympathy and lift part though I'm not sure my limited supply of tools would be much help.
Being a pharmacist though I'm quite good with that common Lotus ailment..... bleeding knuckles!

Thanks Graeme, I'm suggesting the same thing to NYLOC and it looks like I may end up creating a list for them too.

If members are willing to offer support to other Lotusists (?), send me your contact details and what level of support you can offer. I'll create a downloadable list and try to keep it up to date. Minimum data needed : Name, Address [daytime &/or evening/weekend], Phone number [daytime &/or evening/weekend], support you can offer (tea/coffee, tools, bed for the night, workshop, spares, lift from breakdown site to somewhere else, bandages, pharmaceuticals etc.)

I'm willing to be available to anyone who has problems in my area - I can provide a reasonable range of tools, moral encouragement, tea, whisky etc...

I'm also happy to help other members if they're in a fix. My most recent escapade was a chap with a Toyota Aygo, whose auxiliary drive belt snapped. We found one in stock at a local motor factors and fitted it on my drive while his breakdown service updated him on reasons why they were late. Got the car repaired & on the IoW ferry in time for his family celebration. :D

I'd be happy to help out if anyone had the misfortune to be in Lowestoft or nearby.

I recently had the assistance of a chap in an Austin Healey replica, which was most appreciated, turned out be be a toasted coil.

A brilliant idea. PM with details sent.

If it is of help to anyLotus owner I can offer:

Food & drink
Lifts within a reasonable distance (say an hour any direction)
Tools
Possibly temporary off road vehicle storage on the understanding it would be outside and subject to their own insurance

.....and possibly a bed for the night for your wife or girlfriend. Not sure about you though :wink:
