I would imagine that ANY bike that was assembled & "set up" by Halfrauds would have complaints. . .
When i had my bike shop, i used to make loads of money where people had bought a bike from Halfrauds & a day or two later i used to charge them £30 to re-assemble & set it up properly . . .
makes me laugh when people slag halfords employees off, it really does.
I happen to be one of them employees and im pretty confident i know what im doing when it comes to putting a bike together.
Im also very confident in my team being able to do this task with ease. At the end of the day they wouldnt have a job if they couldnt do it correctly.
I cant speak for every store but i know that our every member of bike department team is enthusiastic about bikes, they love bikes. Thats why they applied for the job.
Please think twice next time you want to slag someones workplace off. Your more than welcome to pay us a visit if you want and you can quizz us all.
Dude. . . I humbly apologise if ive offended you. I can assure you its not intentional & im sure that youre a very competent mechanic & your store is excellent.
I was speaking for how i found my local branch which at the time were dreadful. . . good for me though, because it helped me to earn money in my shop.
I work for a Vauxhall/Suzuki/Kia main dealer & we're forever having cars sent down from Halfords cuz someone who doesnt know what theyre doing has cocked the wiring up on something theyre putting a radio, or electrical appliance in & we have to put it right - again, good for business. . . but it doesnt instill much faith into people who have dealt with these issues - cars and bikes. . .
But please, im not directing anything at you. Im sure your branch is excellent
What if the Hokey Kokey really IS what its all about. . . ?
