Lads do a bloody good job though, always cheery, always polite and friendly.

Not looking forward to the day, in a couple of years, when it's back to the bucket and portable vacuum cleaner. Another Brexit dividend!! Seriously though, I really don't understand why trading standards don't clamp down on these slave drivers. I'd happily pay a bit more to see them earn a half decent (legal) wage.

So is mine, based on a closed shell garage, 10 gets the car and interior, boot included done with all galas in and out, the tyres blacked and a free air freshener, 5 simply does the externals with tyres blacked and air freshener. I used to spend more on jet washing it.
