I used Liveridge and would use them again without question. I also
recommended them to two friends, both of whom are very happy with their
purchases.

Worth a google on TJC on this group. Though they may be improved , I've
heard no horror stories recently

I can only personally recommend J.V.Like, in three cocks, near Hay on Wye.
Good bunch, IME.

Re: New Landie Fan ... A good Dealer

Sorry, I'd have to put in a word against Liveridge. A friend of mine
was recommended to purchase a 110 CSW from them and a couple of years
later it looks very shabby. Quite a lot of it was wrong from the start
- the Mantec rear door wheel carrier was mounted incorrectly, the rear
windows had exposed rivets holding them in, interior light was a
reversing lamp, random carpeting instead of headlining, delivery times
were way off.

Plus if I were to spend 10 grand + on a rebuilt vehicle, I'd want it to
be on a galv chassis. Not simply one that had had most of it's
outriggers replaced and a new rear crossmember which two years down the
line looks about 10 years old and seriously rusty. Body cappings are
seriously corroded as well. Rear seats looked terrible as well - they
never took the plastic out from under the screws, just tore the plastic
coverings round them and you can see remains of it through the back
windows.

I don't know why, when they're rebuilding the things anyway, and
they're not particularly cheap, they don't go the whole hog and have a
policy of replacing the chassis and regalvanising all the little bits
that should be, plus the bigger bits like the bulkhead. An extra
thousand pounds onto the price is not going to make a massive
difference to the people that buy them, and it would be a great selling
feature. Especially if they used stainless fixings as well where
appropriate.

I don't suppose the original poster fancies doing it themselves? ;-)

Yeah but I brought my wreck from them too and I think that was definately
overpriced in retrospect.
