Help - I am trying to find a one off recharge M25 south

Postby Flying John » Sat Jun 23, 2007 5:12 pm

Can anyone help me ?.

I have to collect an EV from Basingstoke around the weekend of 14/15th July and get her to Maidstone Kent.

With a full charge from Basingstoke - I think I can get to about Chertsey in the West to Reigate in the East but I am hoping to find a sympathetic BVS member that might help me out.

I am thinking that places like Wisley, Weybridge, Cobham, Leatherhead, Dorking, Caterham, Godstone, Oxsted etc would do for a one off boostup. These places are about half way from Basingstoke to Maidstone and I would need to be able to plug in at one of them for 3-4 hrs before continuing the journey.

Any help would be appreciated. :)

Thankyou

John

Hi John,

So which EV is it you are collecting from Basingstoke ?

Is it David Sheen's Berlingo ? as he lives about 1 mile away from me :-)

Have you looked on http://www.ev-network.memberlodge.org
as there is a public charge point at Sutton, East Sussex, SM1 1EA, but I guess that is a bit high for you.

I cant think of anything that I can help with, but let me know if there is.
You are welcome to drop in a for a drink before departing from Basingstoke ?

One thing you can try is to ask pubs along the way if you can recharge when you have lunch there ;-) that seems to get them interested.

Regards,
Rob

Thankyou all (on and off list) who offered help. In the end I trailered her away so now I am thwe proud owner of 2 EV's (some may say greedy) A Bedford CF (in my Icon) and a Blingo 2003. All Tcut and polished and now I am on the lookout fo hte missing trim parts from a multispace to make her all nice !.

So I suppose I have to sell the "Green Machine" soon to make the wife happy !

I'll just wait abit incase I get any probs woth the Blingo.

I will call them tomorrow and post their response.

I obtained the seats for my first Blingo EV seat conversion from some company doing wheelchair conversions - only £30. Trouble is they still want most of the trim parts. So tomnoz I am off to the junk yard to strip down a multispace for bits of trim.

Today I saw a LHD peugeot partner van (in France) that had complete interior load bay plastic mouldings. In the UK the vans are just bare metal in the load bay and third party suppliers do lining kits in plywood.
