Failed Vehicle Wrap, who’s right, the guy or the girl?
Long term UKSB member, Jill Welsh sent me a post by a girl that went to a vehicle wrapper to get her car colour changed to pink.
the girl picked the car up when it was dark, loved it and paid the guy. the next morning in the sunny day-light, she discovered the mess he had made of her car. An old car, but still a managed to make a complete mess of the wrap!
She asked him to fix it and he refused. shortly after, he stopped answering her calls and blocked her online. The company, “Third Eye Wraps” or “3rd Eye Wraps” the guy, Steven Featherstone.
The girl posted this on her own page, but I think the wrappers page and profile has been tagged in on it, with many people responding and doing same!
Having read a bunch of the replies, many scoff and said the obvious, the wrap is crap! while others slating the girl for getting a “budget wrap” in the first place, which I think was about £800.
whilst others, more or less siding with the wrapper and state “she pays for what she got, and if wants better she should pay more!”
My opinion here is, the only person to blame is “the wrapper”.
This guy, Steven Fetherstone cannot wrap. He is not a wrapper and is breaking the law charging people for a service he clearly cannot perform.
These people blaming the girl for only paying £800 are wrong! The blame again is “the wrapper” because this is “his own fee”, this is what “he agreed for the job”. And he could not even deliver a wrap worthy of the £800.
Do not get me wrong, I am often the first person to slate customers for this and that, but this is a joke and this guy and his company are doing nothing but giving a bad name and reputation for the wrapping industry, whilst devaluing it at the same time.
We all have our off days, our below-par installs and more. I have more than one of those t-shirts too, but the bottom line is, you fix it, smile and apologise for the job. you don’t argue it’s acceptable and then walk away with the persons money.
What do you think, am I siding too much with the girl?
do you think the job is worth charging for? Do you think these fails are acceptable at any level?
