Driven mad by motorway camper van chaos
Musician Martin Kelly hired a camper van to tour the Highlands with his girlfriend.
But the sliding door of the classic VW fell off on the M8, they lost a day of their holiday and had to fork out to hire elsewhere.
He called me in when Scooby Campers promised him a refund in July but still hadn’t paid up.
Guitarist Martin, 36, who is touring Germany, said: “I was lucky – there could have been a nasty accident.” Scooby Campers, based in Dalkeith, Midlothian, promised to refund the £510 he paid plus £ 29.35 he spent on fuel.
But Martin, of Airdrie, said: “Craig Minto, who runs the firm, has refused to return calls or answer emails. Please help.”
Minto said: “As far as I’m aware, this was refunded. But I’ll look into it and get back to you.”
I’d be keen to hear if anyone else has had issues with this firm.
