Yesterday i had some work done to my cab and a service when i went to work last night i realised my meter is showing 8pm instead of 6pm.
problem now is T2 starts at 10pm but on my meter as its forward will start at 8pm which is not good.
then also T1 comes back at 6am but on mines at 4am which on weekends is still busy time.
could someonme please give me some info on what can i do as with the busy time i dont want to be off work?
could it be possible to charge less between 8pm-10pm and Extra 4am-6am according to correct tariff and explain to customer?
or if i go to council how long will it take them to re calibrate to correct time?
or is it possible could be done manually?

Visit the meter agent and ask him to reset the time.

As mentioned, it’s a trip to the meter man. Most meters only allow you to adjust the time by three minutes per week. Sounds like you need to change the meters internal ( back-up) battery as well. Either that or the garage has ‘fried’ your meter.

To answer your question people need to know in what area you are in.

When the council change the tariff who do you go to?

Or maybe ask one of the lads on the rank.
