  1. Past hour
  2. GLWS FYI We sold our XC70 (the white one) for £11990 via a Car Gurus lead. We're on the paid package. Didn't seem to get much interest through AT though
  3. I'm going to re photo it..... The fact it hasn't had a call in 3 months is absolutely killing me! i've just dropped it to what I paid for it now. sick of the sight of it now!
  4. From an outside perspective, I'd do the following: Re-take photos - some of them look fine, others not so great. The Wheel photo - definitely add tyre shine, not everyone likes it but makes a huge difference on the photo's. The door card photo is blurry. I'd put the price back up and show a "Great Price" indicator rather than "Low Price" indicator. Volvo buyers don't tend to be the last price brigade, they want a quality car. We recently sold an XC70 - Not sure if you can see the old facebook ad? We have another one in stock atm -
  5. Had one in this morning , Come 50 miles on a £13,795 car . Loved what he saw, got a 05 knackered BMW 320d sport px part service history 184,000 miles and well used shall we say regards body work and interior Wanted £2,000 , silly boy Then offered me £10k for my car , silly silly boy , He left , why do they come shopping with only 80% of the funds needed , No way on earth I would ever go shopping with not enough money , what a weird hobby , No wonder they no funds as they must spend it driving round the 5 counties looking at what they cant have . Another yesterday came on £3,799 little motor in our small car section . Dad says son wants to spend 3k but he will pay me £3,,250 as the car is so clean I said well let me explain it this way We like £650 profit £100 goes to VAT man £135 goes on service and MOT £100 on adverts £75 On valet £50 towards Rent £20 on Fuel £20 on power Electric /water etc £25 web site costs £100 wages = £625 expenses = £50 profit . See why my offer is thought out and not a guess like yours He said i was just trying my luck and paid £3,799 .
  6. Same here, don't thing this new AutoTrader search is going to help but fingers crossed
  7. I only mention it as i avoid those posts at all costs, dont find them mentally productive at all.
  8. Literally for life of me cannot sell this car. Average market price on auto trader is saying £9000 ish. Ive now priced it a grand below for over a 6 weeks and I cant even get a phone call on it. Its such a lovely car. 7/8 Volvo stamps and 1 owner with Nav. I bought this thinking it was an absolute banker haha. Never a again. Found a spelling mistake in the first line... must be where I am going wrong
  9. Absolutely dead here - hardly seen a soul this month let alone sold a car! With 17 in stock we're a little low but have some great bits which I think are priced very competitively.. Hoping for an end of month pick up
  10. So far so good with some good sales and enquiries but 3 very sticky cars that I just cannot get rid of!
  11. Indeed. But we both know how things work on here these days
  12. Today
  13. We generally do okay with the time wasters but they have been out in force this month determined to waste my time.
  14. Dead here also, brings out the nutters with every reason why they cant buy the car.
  15. Very Quiet. 2 Sold all month. Have our most up sale now at 9 should be closer to 12 by the end of the weekend and then im off on my holidays. Hopefully set ourselves up for a busy September.
  16. There is an August thread already running somewhere
  17. 3 sold all of August, out of a stock of 4-5. Two of those sales were last week. Left sold cars online though, and now stock is 6 (not huge I know) and it feels like it's gone quiet since Saturday.
  18. i thought from the title this was a Customer you were going to tell us about disappointed now, I like a good moaner story
  19. To be honest, on a 57 plate. Don’t worry about it. Just make sure it’s got oil in the box and drive it until it either stops (very rarely) or sets on fire (quite regularly).
  20. Only 10 so far, but some nice deals and a couple of heavy stickers gone, so ticking over. Have had the same issue with finance props. Mentioned it a few months ago. Sign of the times I guess? I’ve not needed to buy for a while luckily, as was holding enough and didn’t feel the inclination. Started to look again last week tentatively and prices seem more reasonable, but we’ll see.
  21. Yesterday
  22. How’s it all going gents? 15 so far this month with 38 in stock, with some lumpy finance deals. Had a lot of finance declines however, the quality of finance customers are getting worst by the month but so far very happy with how it’s gone.
  23. Never thought of that might use that one if they overhear can always point to the tool box in the corner The arse falls out them though tescos are better
  24. Always been an asda man myself and can say the bags for life never rust
