I accepted a quote given by ENSOURCE because it was the best option, friendly service and quick response. The payment was made on the given quote for the supply of an engine. When the engine arrived via Time Freight, it was not the correct motor as quoted and the waybill was not from this company the payment was done to. Time Freight was asked to take the engine back - we waited for very long before they eventually said that they can not supply the motor that we need. Only R5000 of the...

I went to raise my concerns to this place after my car was serviced there a week ago S full service was done and I started to see oil leaks where I park the car and when I check underneath I notice the car was leaking oil. The guy was so defensive and plainly rude instead of dealing with the matter like a business person who care. I hated the fact that I even bothered to complain. Black businesses, no more!!!
