Newmarket Horse Box Seller Sentenced

A Trading Standards investigation into the sale of horse boxes with altered mileage concluded on Friday when the trader was sentenced.

Trading as Ascot Horseboxes, Jean Luc Guillambert, of Heasman Close, Newmarket, was sentenced to 10 months for each of his 11 offences of misleading actions under the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations Act 2008, suspended for 18 months. He was also ordered to pay costs of £10,000.

Suffolk Trading Standards received a complaint about a horse lorry that had been sold with 56,000 miles on the odometer which was supported by an MOT certificate where the mileage history seemed to confirm this. When the consumer went to take the vehicle for an MOT nearly a year later, they discovered the mileage history actually indicated a mileage of at least 125,000 and that the MOT certificate he had been given had been altered.

After executing a warrant at Guillambert’s home address, Suffolk Trading Standards officers obtained evidence of more horseboxes sold with altered mileages and/or altered MOT certificates.
