Trade Club does deliver
« on: 27 August 2019, 16:23:40 »

For years I have used Trade Club for cheap supplies, usually at Drive Vauxhall, Avon Street, Bristol. I recalled TB mentioning that he gets his stuff delivered, so enquired this morning if Drive Vauxhall does so. Yes, I was told. This afternoon goods arrived. That saved me 229, and a 40 mile drive. Thank you TB, and thank you Autobahnstormers!

Glad you found it useful.  I too often use their delivery service, for convenience and speed.

I now suspect that Drive Vauxhall, Bristol, sells more parts and supplies to the trade than it does to the public. There is a parts counter, but when I visit it there is no-one there to serve me. I have to ring a bell, and eventually someone emerges from the office to serve me. And if I want 20 litres of oil, it takes 20 minutes to collect it from an outside lockup.
And anything not in stock (like Dex-Cool today) they will deliver later.

Hm .. wonder if they'd deliver to Northampton. Come to think of it, I don't even know which our nearest is, anymore.. or if it's even that worthwhile for just oil (the BMW and Mini both happen to use 5W30). But I'm finally about to run out of the last of the TC oil I bought several years ago  :-X

The dealer at Kingsthorpe used to do TC and deliver.

TC do many different oil types, and have an online oil selector.  The Jag gets TC oil, a 0W30 C1 if memory serves

20 litres TC 5W30 35 plus VAT from Drive Vauxhall Bristol, delivered.
35 plus vat = 42  ::)
you can get it with 24 hour tracked delivery for 38.99 including VAT here clicky
or fully synthetic for 41 for 20L with 24 hour tracked delivery, same seller

plus , 10w40 trade club semi for 37.99 inc VAT with 24 hour tracked delivery here

which would be better in a high mile 500 rusty vauxhall  :-X

without having to phone or go to or argue about trade club to vauxhall dealers ,many of which won't and don't do trade club

just a few clicks of the mouse to us "lazy ebay buyers " as TB put it

I've purchased many times from that seller, excellent service

as for coolant ,I pay about 11 for 5L of OAT concentrate at my local factors

I will pop to the local vauxhall main stealers Tuesday though......
to have the zafira dash ripped out for the recall  ;D

Thanks for the links guys - C3 seems nicely easy and cheap to get.. C1 spec (for the RRS) a bit harder, but still reasonable.

Incidentally, how are you all decanting these 20L containers - windy pump or just man up and pour? ;D

Use some of the 'savings' to buy yourself a tap, give the container a home on a shelf and use gravity to fill your favourite jug.

(because chip papers have chip oil on and are not recyclable )
I save the empty 20L tubs and put waste oil in to take for recycling

10w40 semi on TC is 24 delivered.  That makes dealing with the knobjockeys on egay expensive. But ebay usually is about the most expensive place.

Yeah, I bought a 3 pack of them, they are really shit.  No, I mean really, really shit.

Buy decent ones, or pour.  I do the latter, as I'm bored buying them.

Indeed. I bought myself a nice old half gallon steel oil pouring can from a 2nd hand shop for buttons and it's large enough target to just fire the big 20L tub into it without too much spillage. Gets easier once the first couple of litres have gone, ;D

Do you know how to roll the container so that it pours properly?
