More customers come forward with complaints against Woolston Car Supermarket

Daily Echo: Customers confront car dealership bosses Customers confront car dealership bosses

FURIOUS customers have inundated the Daily Echo with complaints about a Hampshire car dealership that closed suddenly.

Another 20 people have contacted this newspaper since we published the results of our investigation into Woolston Car Supermarket in Southampton on Saturday.

They have complained of being sold defective vehicles that broke down and cost them hundreds of pounds to repair.

Many reported major faults with their vehicles – from a Peugeot 307 with a bonnet that would fly up if it went above 30mph, to a Toyota Celica that was not driveable due to an engine problem.

Daily Echo:

Bounced cheques When some complainants were eventually given refund cheques, they were horrified to find that they bounced.

Southampton City Council Trading Standards is already investigating more than 20 complaints against the firm, which shut its Hazel Road site in Woolston without warning earlier this month.

Daily Echo:

The Daily Echo tracked down the company to its new base in Fareham, where it has reopened as Fort Wallington Car Sales.

With Daily Echo journalists on hand, angry customers confronted one of the men behind Woolston Car Supermarket – Stan Rudgley – and wrested a promise from him to reimburse them.

However there is another person heavily involved in the business.

Richard Burbage, below, who owes more than eleven million Australian dollars after the collapse of his car-trading firm Down Under, is another man who customers have tried, and so far failed, to get hold of.

Daily Echo:

Yet the Daily Echo may have spoken to him this weekend.

This newspaper called a number given to a former customer by Mr Burbage and spoke to a man who claimed he was called “Dave”, lived in Walton-on-Thames in Surrey and was a friend of Mr Burbage.

“Dave” claimed Mr Burbage had left the country a fortnight ago and was now living in a villa he owns in Marbella, Spain.

Later it emerged that several customers of Woolston Car Supermarket had dealt with a man calling himself “Dave” and believed to be Mr Burbage. David is also one of Mr Burbage’s middle names.

When the Daily Echo attempted to contact “Dave” again, his phone was switched off.

Over the weekend, the Daily Echo also called at an address in Botley given by several callers to this newspaper.

When our reporter knocked on the door no-one answered, although the lights were on and curtains had been drawn.

Mr Burbage was banned from being a company director in Australia for ten years, and left the country in 2012.

His firm We Buy Any Car, which is not linked to the UK company of the same name, collapsed with a liquidator’s report saying it owed more than £6 million.

Over the weekend Fort Wallington Car Sales, based at the Fort Wallington industrial estate in Fareham, was open for business as normal.

Mr Rudgley, below, was seen at the site while other members of staff showed a number of customers around the firm’s car warehouse.

Daily Echo:

Meanwhile, the registered address for Woolston Car Supermarket was recently changed to a site in Ducie Street, Manchester according to the website companiesintheuk.co.uk.

The website shows the address was changed from the Hazel Road site in Woolston on January 10.

Because the law allows them to take money, close the business and open another. So the cycle continues.
You could ban them from operating a business, but it will only go in a family members name and he will ' work' there.,

only then to syphon the money earned off into the wifes account then to declare the company bankrupt & to start another Ltd company up with the same"Director" doing the same work.
the only way my brother survived was to scrap his company declare himself bankrupt his workers all lost their jobs & he got the other company done for VAT avoidance.
but that owner/director was living in a massive house wife had a brand new top of the range sports car yet they couldn't be touched?
change the law if it's obvious who the owner is or that it's still the same company but with a different name hammer them

It is in fact "long firm fraud" The indictment would be conspire to commit fraud, defined by Section 2 of the Act as a case where a person makes "any representation as to fact or law ... express or implied" which they know to be untrue or misleading. i.e for a merchant to offer for sale a car which is, and which he can reasonably expected to know is, defective.
You may take a plea to the substantive offence at Crown Court but it's a prison job either way.
And with respect it's a CID job. They have the resources and the speed. Much afraid that Trading Standard will be out of its depth.

My old man was a car dealer for 25 years - no saint by any means. However, there was a kind of old school morality that would not have tolerated the worst extremes and things were sorted out the old fashioned way by aggrieved customers ofr dealers. Some of those who crossed the line even came to sticky ends one way or another including my godfather who had an unfortunate accident into the Bosphorus!

I certainly dont condone such actions, but the risk of ripping off the wrong person did act as a restraint to those prepared to be such blatant con merchants.

Did you fancy him? It sounds like you did
My apologies if I sounded a bit insincere. I have since read all the gory details of his devious ways in Australia, and I am shocked. He was always a lad, but I never saw him as a con merchant. Apologies again 'munday1'
Don't apologise to that idiot.
Ah yes, I can't believe I walked into that one

If Richard is posting messages on here taking the p*** out of people, then that says a great deal about him. He was a decent guy when he was young, such a shame to see him turn into a thoroughly unpleasant man

Does anyone know what they were called before Woolston Car Supermarket - it was something like Enterprise Cars or something like that.

I bought a car from Stan Rudgley down there and although the warning signs were there, I was so desperate to get a car that day - that I got sucked in.

Only to find:

1. The cambelt going on me very shortly after whilst doing 70mph in the outside lane of the M3 motorway in peak traffic (I had been specifically told by them that it was replaced recently as it had 107k miles on the clock)

2. They had also told me that they had replaced 2 tyres (as they had nails in them) - instead the had swapped the front wheels for the rear, so they looked fine when checking the next day (I never thought to check the front ones again) - only found this out a few days later when the tyres went flat.

3. Rear windscreen & wipers - this came loose a few days after purchase - the wiper had been glued on & hidden by a filler cap and the seal around the rear windscreen looked like it had been held on with chewing gum.

4. Side mirror - these had been glued together (only found out when the mirror fell off)

This is only a few of the issues I had - I tried to complain by phone (each time was told politely to "f**k off") letter (no response) & in person (all the workers came out, so I backed off)

Ended up having to scrap the car as it was not safe for the road !!

Late last year I paid a refundable deposit against trading in my car for a vehicle described on autotrader as excellent.
Having travelled some distance, the car was not as described so "stan" agreed to refund the deposit to my credit card but could not do so as he demonstrated that he did not have the relevant "administrator card".
Stupidly I left with the assurance that it would be done on the following monday when the accounts lady was in. Following many phone calls with assurances that it was about to be done and finally that the refund had been made I gave up & resorted to letters which I assume he enjoyed the contempt of using as toilet paper. Keep us posted if anyone manages to get satisfaction
