I had the misfortune of dealing dealing with Duncan Edwards from this shop at 6 Barracks street, he came to my home to look at a washing machine, I paid him £20.00 for a £17.50 call out fee as he told me he had no change. He told me I need a washing machine as it was burnt out, took a photo of the sticker with the washing machine details, which he maybe using to apply to other machine but people should contact the manufacturers to see if they correspond. He then told me he could get me one and he needed a £200.00 deposit, which I gave him, I had to insist on receipt, the receipt is not even fit to use as toilet paper. On beknowning to me he added on that a brand new washing machine month warranty and that the deposit was nonrfundable, when I asked him about this he became very belligerent, racist, angry and abusive. Told me he was not giving me a washing machine or my deposit back, I refused to leave the tatty shop and he called the police. I spoke to trading standards and CAB and it turns out he is breaching the trading rules. I would strongly advise anyone who might consider dealing with ADAS or The appliance and repair centre to just walk pass or always. I would like to give this tatty shop a minus 5 star as a 1 star is way too much. PLEASE AVOID THIS SHOP 6 BARRACK STREET AT ALL COST, he is A LIAR, A THIEF, DISHONEST and A FRAUDSTER. People you can do better I can promise you that.

Foolish giving someone money before you received a replacement machine. You can buy a brand new washing machine for less than £200. Hope you.have learnt your lesson!

He sold me a faulty oven, fixed it once, the fix lasted less than a week and broke again on Christmas day. He refuses to fix or replace/refund. And has blocked all communication streams where we have tried to reason with him. He also cancelled 2 of our appointments due to "colleague" issues only to discover that he has no colleagues. He works alone. Absolute crook
