This looks like a case of them being suspicious of the van, nothing to do with the driver being MOD.
0 #11 dave 2015-02-23 20:23
We did get to the bottom of this rumour, the facts are:
a driver in a plain white lorry occasionally came into the truck park always parking in the far corners of the site, along with him was a small van, the lorry itself has a trailer with opening side doors .
due to the out of character actions and the fact that it is common knowledge that thief's operate in truck parks with this style of lorry/trailer the driver was approached and asked what he was doing, apparently he said he was mod but no proof of this was offered ,due to the suspicious actions the driver was asked to leave the site. this has nothing what so ever to do with any military staff or vehicles but everything to do with the security of our customers vehicles and loads.

i have known dave for a good many years now ,please do not think i am biased... as an ex lorry driver and friend of his .i can say that he will accept mod staff there ..he has a close relationship with the mod ......thefore i see it hard to beleive the rumours.

Hi Gordon.

I work for SNAP Account. So this alleged incident wouldn't have been one of my staff. We have been working with J26 for a long time though, and know that they welcome military personel and vehicles. Why would any business turn away a paying customer?

I would suggest that you call the owner at J26, Dave, on 01992 809 100. I know that he would take it very seriously if one of his staff had said something like this.

As I have repeated in my previous posts, as far as I can determine from my own investigation, there is absolutely no policy of turning away military customers at J26.

Sam thanks for your comment would you please clarify that it is not true that one of your staff spoke to my driver and stated that his kind wasn't welcome at this facility?

Hi, I work for SNAP and i've just been speaking to the owners of J26 on the phone. It seems that someone has made up some false rumours about J26.

They do a lot of business with MoD and ex forces personell, and would like everyone to know that the information posted about this is false.

Its also a little suspicious that these three negative reviews were posted within ten minutes of each other.

Reviews of sites are brilliant as they encourage all Truckstops to provide better services for drivers, but false reviews are unfair and can damage the reputation of great sites. We are looking into who may have started this rumour.
