Bring me a Bongo Warrington

Post by BBP4 » Sun Jun 14, 2020 12:03 pm

Hello. I’m going to start looking at vans shortly and just wanted a few recommendations please. Has anybody used Bring me a Bongo in Warrington or DJ autos in Wigan?

Personally, don't trust ANYONE to "bring you a bongo"
Go find one, get underneath at the back end and look for rot, look very closely at the rear corners and check the inner sills, if you can't... Walk away... These are old busses and are all up for sale now and for a good reason too

There was a thread about them some while back so a few minutes with the 'search' facility might be worthwhile. I do recal reading the there were a lot of Facebook post which weren't complimentary.

Wheelquick, in Wigan, used to import Bongos (might still do) and are very well thought of, also Bongo Spares, Sowerby Bridge, have a top reputation.

To be fair, although there were one or two grumbles about Chris at Bring-me-a-Bongo, we have loads of members who have bought from them without any problem. He's been renovating imported Bongos and installing small kitchen units for at least 12 years.

Thanks everyone.
Any advice on where to begin my search for a rear conversion van with ISOFIX?
