Mobile Truck Shops Breaking the Law

We are all think about buying things we can’t afford … just yet.

Mobile Truck Shops are so tempting as they offer the goods and you don’t have to pay right now. However, if you read the small print, often you’ll be paying, A LOT, for a long time to come.

Two of these shoddy businesses (Zee Shop and Budget Warehouse) have now been caught for making their ‘small print’ too difficult to understand and have received massive fines.

Have you seen Zee Shop or Budget Warehouse trucks in your neighbourhood?

ROCC wonders if we should go one step further and ban these vans?

Do you know of any political party that has a policy about this? Is this an election issue for you?

Let us know!

ROCCyourvote

It’s official – ROCC have decided to stand a candidate in the Auckland local body elections. Our nominee for Auckland Council in the Manukau Ward is Brendan Corbett, longtime Mangere resident.

Brendan is a qualified builder and teacher and is currently Acting HOD of Technology at Sir Edmund Hillary Collegiate. He has been married to his wife Kahoa for 38 years and together they have raised four daughters and three mokopuna. Brendan is a keen sportsperson and helped to establish the New Zealand Transplant Games Association, following his own successful kidney transplant in 1986. He has represented New Zealand four times at the World Transplant Games and remains a keen cyclist and athlete. Building on his own transplant experience, he is involved in a Counties Manukau District Health Board campaign to increase Maori & Pasefika organ donation. Brendan is also an integral part of the Save Our Unique Landscape (SOUL) campaign to stop development on sacred land at Ihumatao. In his spare time, Brendan works at the Mangere Mountain Education Centre in the traditional mara kai growing kumara and taro, or can be found paddling waka on the Manukau Harbour. Brendan is a real community person and will be an excellent representative for Manukau Ward.
