Arrow Map of MLR traders - Availible HERE

Click there -> MAD7BOY'S MAP OF MLR TRADERS <- Click there

Why
It was suggested some time ago (again again recently) that it would be handy to have a map of all the MLR traders so people can see who's where etc, so I've put the above together (click link).

  • Company Name
  • One (sensible length) sentence to summarise your business. (I do appreciate it might be hard to fit what you want into a short space but this isn't an advert, it's a directory so if it's too long then I'll trim it down myself as I need to keep the map useable.)
  • Your website URL
  • Your Email address
  • Your phone/mobile/fax numbers
  • Your address including postcode (I'll use the postcode to drop the pin on the map.)

So far I've been looking this up for people from their websites, but it would be helpful if I could as you to post the info on the thread for me to copy. (You'll also then know what info will be in your entry.)

Hope that's ok.

Cheers,
Ben


How
At present (14 Aug 09) it is not complete. The way I've put it together is to run down the list of traders on the Trader Links page and then visit their website and copy the address - however there are some traders who don't list their address on their website - so there are some traders which do not appear on my map.

In terms of the locations I have take the published address and then dropped a pin into the map where Google thinks their postcode is. Therefore the locations are approximate.

I've then taken the description from the Trader Links page and the address, so when you click on the pins it brings up the details.

I would like to improve the map in the following ways:

i) Colour coding by service type (i.e. parts/servicing/mail order/engineering/etc) However this could be complex where traders offer more than one service.
[I'll work this out in due course!]

ii) Include the phone number, fax and email contact details of the traders.
[I'll add these from the traders websites where available when I have time.]

iii) Refine the locations if the ACTUAL location is significantly different from where the post code takes you. (e.g. Eurospec2000 is about 1/2 mile from where the postcode suggests it is)
[If anyone knows a more accurate location for a trader, post a map up in this thread and I'll move the marker on my map - subject to confidentiality wishes of traders who don't want their exact location known.]

iv) Include traders who don't have their address details on their websites.
[See below - please post your address up here and I'll add it on.]

Development
At present the map has been put together by myself in my spare time. All I have used has been information in the public domain.
-> If traders want amendments making, please post in this thread.
-> If anyone from the MLR would like to assist in administering (e.g. adding new traders and removing lapsed ones) then please make contact with me to agree what basis this will be on.

Hope this is useful to people.

Cheers
MAD7BOY

Here is the list of (UK based) MLR traders who don't have their address on their website and have not yet submitted to this thread.
  • Auto Detox
  • Autoflock - Added to map 17/8/09

  • CPP Motor Developments
  • DCY Europe
  • Extreme Motorsport - Added to map 17/8/09

Traders: Please post your address in this thread if you would like me to include it on the map. Please note there is, of course, no obligation to disclose. I understand that several traders have chosen to withold their address as a crime prevention measure and this is perfectly understandable. I can drop a pin into the nearest major city instead (and make it clear this is what has been done.) So if you want that, then let me know the nearest town to use.

Cheers.

See my post below yours. Your address isn't on your website so although I happen to know it I've only used public info for the time being as I thought I'd give people (yourself included) the option of asking me to use the nearest big town, rather than your actual post code.

I would like to say "Nice Work!" the time spent I'm sure will benefit many, for one has added the link into my favourites. Nice little touch using a small write up for each of the tag, now I know who can rebuild and who can do services by just zooming into my area... Am I right in thinking I can plan a route from your listings to my house by adding my address?

Keep up the good work and get someone to sort you Map out as a sticky somewhere obvious.

Regards

Mark

Thanks Rob. I have RG's address, but I wasn't sure if he wanted it put up. I can use the nearest big town if he prefers.

Note to all members: Please don't put up the addresses for traders whose address wasn't on their website. I know you could help me fill in all the blanks, but I'd prefer them to let me know whether they want me to use their full postcode or nearest town.

Otherwise I could get hassle if they get robbed and claim that I'd made their location well known.

Good point, address removed.
