  1. £40k PA 4 on 4 off, and you want to trade cars? You need your head feeling. Im still in the motor/leisure vehicle industry, I dont trade cars anymore, I did it for many years and managed to escape. Still have friends in the game and lurk around on here so have a fair idea of the job. Dont give up the day job
  2. Another nail in to the coffin of the High Street
  3. We dont have a card machine. Bank transfer all the way
  4. If we listen to the media and lefty Corbin we'll actually believe there is a recession. Its utter bollocks, we have been as busy as ever, my average camper conversion cost has gone up in the last 6 months or so, people seem to be going the extra mile rather than skinflinting it. Customer of mine who owns a window firm has had is best year ever! My Rock n Roll bed suppliers, waiting list is 6-8 weeks. Poptop roof supplier is about 3 week leadtime cause they are that busy Speaking to my landlord last week, they are building a fair sized industrial Park, 120 houses, old folks home and nursery. All of the industrial units are pre-rented, the houses are selling.
  5. Just had to put a brand new engine + clutch + dmf + freshly serviced turbo's in to a 180 biturbo Transporter. Not sure there is much change from £4k.
  6. Wish Id have become fighter pilot
  7. MrC

    I miss...

    White dog shit
  8. All sorted now thanks to CB.. And it is clear
  9. £2700 gets you a new BiTurbo CFCA engine form TPS, just make sure he blanks off and maps out the EGR as that the cause of the problem.
  10. Im looking to buy a VW Transporter that is currently on Irish plates. It was a UK (N.I) registered van, then went to southern Ireland for a short period. I do know the original UK reg no but that does not exist any longer, so if it can be done using the chassis no or maybe the old UK number id happily throw one of you guys a pint or two. Thanks
  11. Legally I dont know where you and he stand. Morally Id have just given it back, Twat or not there is nothing wrong with good customer relations.
  12. Seems a tad harsh to me, a few days holding the car isn't the end of the world. If you have held it for a couple of weeks then fair enough keep the deposit.
  13. Id love to find vans with no VAT. A no VAT van means VAT margin for me which is a fair difference in my favour to what the VAT man takes.
  14. I have a bike policy and trade policy, Bike insurance has 8 years NCB and trade is 6 years. You cant use a bike NCB to trade policy. However if I had a bike claim then my trade policy would be effected!! It only transfers when it suits them
  15. Well I know what to do if I ever find myself in court.. Just start to cry!
  16. Guy I know had one and the phone fell off the wall. Not my bag but they have some kind of weird following... Peados and Doggers is my guess
  17. I would if someone asked for one
  18. I use quickbooks, I found a lot of it gobble de gook and made a good few mistakes. I just keep it simple. Photograph and upload receipts then match to banking. I create quotes and invoices, my account tried to get me to do Classes which allowed me to bunch all expenses to a particular camper. But as i tend to buy in bulk this became hard to start breaking down. I use excel to work out my profit per job, how much I need too put aside for VAT, Tax , NI and how much I'm allowed to keep.
  19. She has a horse so cant say a darn thing. I have a tweaked 1199s, do the odd Euro trackday. Got three days at Aragon in about 6 weeks.
  20. My personal bus is a bonkers crazy 200bhp Red Italian with two wheels
  21. Personally I've never had an issue, like any brand & model you will always have a the Friday afternoon ones that. Never done a TSI, VW have stopped doing them.
  22. Absolutely no chance, Its a world of pain I'll avoid. I did look in to it, with the idea of leasing brand new vans, build over the winter, rent out over the summer then sell in September and pay off the finance. Before we even get in to renting to the general public the insurance is very costly, You need an emergency van spare just incase one gets trashed, short term leases dont give you the V5 so I couldnt change it to a camper on the logbook All Seasons do some nice vans.
