Jal imports worcester

My friend bought a converted Toyota Alphard Hybrid from JAL imports. It cost her £26,000 and she feels she has been ripped off. The storage space is badly designed, and certainly does not maximise the available space. The pop-top roof is incredibly heavy and almost impossible to lift by yourself. But the worst design fault is the water system - there is a sink with a tap, but you have to connect an external pump to an external water source to make it work, ie you need to carry a large jerry can of water (no storage space provided), then put the can outside the van on the ground and connect it all up just to get a bit of water out the tap to fill the kettle!!! Also the guy who does the conversions (Phil) is very bad at communicating, can be quite rude, and is very economical with the truth when you ask straightforward questions.

Hello Pete,

 

Welcome to the Forum.

 

I'm so sorry to learn your friend feels that way about her purchase.

 

For the benefit of other potential buyers please advise :-

 

Is her conversion a side conversion or a rear conversion ?

What model year is the van, and what mileage has it covered ?

It's a 2008 model, side conversion, with side-lifting pop-top, and has done about 55,000 miles.

We would endorse the comments Pete made about the person who runs this company. We couldn't get along with him at all. We ended up buying a Funky Ram conversion from JMT Leisure near Weston Super Mare and are basically very pleased with it.
