Angry I feel ive been ripped off!

My renault trafic 1.9 2003 cracked the block so engine was scrap according to my garage , so i got a 2nd hand engine with turbo and all ancillaries still on it that i brought from ebay 895, so just a straight swap over. when i went to collect the van this evening i was greeted with a invoice of 1431.50 which 15hrs 900+VAT was labour for doing engine swap, and they had striped my old engine and put it on there stock shelf i had to ask for it all back. it seems very expensive to me but i had to pay the bill to get my van back as i was desperate for it for work, what is your opinions and what should i do next?

I'm a bit confused as well.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.

Just think what Renault would have charged you for fitting an engine, and it'd have to be new!

Mind you, it does sound a bit pricey...
