Shocking experience.

In February of 2019 I took a motorhome, with only 300 odd miles on the clock for Hartleys to sell on commission because my husband was very ill. They gave me a signed statement to say it was fully insured whilst on their premises.
Six months later they had not sold it and as my husband was much better we decided to trade it in for a motorhome with a different dealer. The dealer went to pick it up and found that the bottom rear skirt was damaged. He pointed it out to Hartleys and took photos. It cost me £700 to have it repaired and when I claimed reimbursement from them they put up all sorts of obstacles and I stilll haven`t been paid in spite of many emails (some of which were not answered) and letters. I would not recommend anyone to go there. I would not give any stars but have to otherwise this review will not be accepted.

Beware buying new Hobby motorhome


I bought a new Hobby Motorhome from E S Hartley, motorhome dealers of Ings near Kendal, a year ago. Days later I received an eMail from the makers Hobby telling me that I did not own the van as they still did. because they had not received payment from Hartleys, and that Hartleys had registered it with the DVLA using what Hobby described as a forged CoC certificate. It took some time to sort things out and confirm that I had not lost all of £45,000. I had to re-register the van with DVLA. As I did not own the van for a period my insurance cover was invalid as it did not cover me for a vehicle I did not own. I was also fobbed off that only ONE set of keys came with the van and that the second usually came direct from Ford> Then I was told by them that the keys would come from Hobby. Later E S Hartley "found" the keys ans posted them to me. Hobby Germany suggested in an eMail that I press Hartleys for compensation , but nothing is forthcoming ...not even a "sorry"
