I have posted here before about my concerns regarding Hesketh Motor Company and whether or not they are a good thing for Vectrix and Vectrix riders in the UK.
Now I have seen what I think could reasonably be seen as evidence of their completely amateur approach to business. Their site is currently displaying pricing without VAT which is, I believe a criminal offence:
"The "Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008" requires that:'All price indications you give to consumers, by whatever means, should include VAT. This total price must be displayed prominently so that consumers can see it. Prices may ONLY be indicated exclusive of VAT at an outlet or through advertisements from which ALL of your business is with business customers" As a "misleading omission" on an invitation to purchase, is a criminal offence, does anybody here think that Hesketh Motor Company could be construed to be criminals?
Or are they possibly just very inexperienced in the world of business and the motorcycle trade, and trading on the ego of having the same surname as Lord Hesketh, the founder of a (some would say) failed British motorcycle company?
I do hope someone from Vectrix in the US reads this forum and considers whether they have made the right decision on their UK importer.
Not afraid of having a go.
