  2. The car has had a private reg put on it within the last few months, how would dvla do this if the car isn’t meant to be on the road? where does it say "isn't meant to be on the road " ? if dvla issued a v5c in 2010 then theres no reason it could not have had multiple plate changes ? read up about cat b "extensive damage"
  3. bottom line is you "used" to be able get a v5 for a cat b, you can not now, as for quote "it’s been on the road ever since with no issues?" is because it is not the same vehicle.................
  4. Underseal black, up to nearly door handles ! i got a sahara beige cortina, blacked up to halfway, rest looked suspiciously very clean, took a gallon of petrol and washed it all off, [ no smoking ! ] then t cut it and polish and only found a few rust spots on the sills which were re blacked, made a bucket of money out of it, he who dares kiwi on the vinyl top ? steam clean the engine then just take off the dizzy cap and blow it out ? [ i have would preferred to have seen it before you washed it, er, no you wouldn't ] so heres one for you ? whats cu1000 ? give you a clue, its advertising .
  5. you are asking for vosa and dvla to work together, they just will not, and never have done unfortunatley.
  6. phone call this aft from a "we have a few more to look at" viewing this morning . "hello, you've still got that car that we viewed this morning i hope, be in at 9 monday with a depo, do not sell it " And this is a guy who has bought from me before, you try telling them, do they listen ? no
  7. " If you can find a better car, buy it " Sad to report the passing of a great man, lee iacocca today, rip sir.
  8. all buyers are liars there's a bum for every seat and don't let the barstewards get you down remember those three and you won't go too far wrong
  9. So, these charging points, where are they in my village ? where are they going to be in that block of flats, no drive roadside houses etc ? bit of work to be done yet i think ! wood pellets drive power stations, wood all the way from germany / usa, joke ! Onto chargers, this is from gov website = The chargepoint must have appropriate security measures to ensure that its functions are resilient to cyber-attack. The chargepoint must ensure that any communications are exchanged in a secure manner with an appropriate level of encryption to prevent interception by an un-authorised third party. So if you can hack the chargers, you stop the country in 1 day flat ! joke ! and the chargers, fitted by "suppliers" are only guaranteed 3 years so you must add this "cost" after 3 years, you can only use a contractor registered through the Highways and Electrical Registration Scheme (HERS). seems like a job to be in maybe ?
  10. I used to put a LOT of cars through the auction, all sensible reserves, many no reserve [ under a certain price house rules are no reserve] always balanced out at the end of the week or the auction would see me right, one particular example, never forget it, third week through the hall, i had already reduced the reserve to create auctioneer interest [ it shows on entry form], it once again failed to meet my reserve, after getting promising bids and auctioneer looked at me when it was driving out, i announced to the auctioneer, "sell the dam thing " and he said, over the microphone !" i would sell the bloody thing if i had a bid " i felt one foot tall
  11. So to meet this "zero emmisions" we are advised to = "eat less meat" "fly less often" oh, and cut down on waste like single use coffee cups, how about doing something a bit nearer home like cutting on back on the essential need of food banks, child poverty and increase policing, we led the way with the industrial revolution, yet we now have no [nearly] no steel industry, country was built on coal, now we have to import it, and now the british broadcasting cockroaches are acting like [deleted] by asking to prove your getting means tested benefits to get a licence [ over 75] . We have a shitty government that will not turn round and say when china and poland [etc] stop throwing shite up in air then we will, and not until. and it looks like were getting boris ! shoot me !
  12. Do not "sell" warranties unless your fca approved, you give warranties as a consequence of a sale, the cost will be hidden in the purchase price, if you "sell" warranties, as in warranting a car that you haven't sold, is similar to selling insurance [which is what it is] and you need to be approved. "standard with every purchase" ? no! you should assess the car and the customer, car might be a bit evil or old or over mileage, customer might be a bit evil or old or over enthusiastic !
  13. When you have ford closing the wales depot, [ ford edge removed from sale in uk yesterday ] vauxhall announced yesterday £4000 scrappage scheme [conditions apply ] and no prime minister from friday, hardly suprising customers are being very careful
  14. This, [and the where do you get them from then ?] on the phone, i refer them to the bit where it says "trade seller" in the advert, the "how long have you ad it " is easily answered by well obviously not long because i am a trade seller, it's my job, my business, i am a trade seller
  15. Just had a call from one of my customers, he has had a letter from main dealer, his mot is due and he can book it online at evans halshaw, he is concerned that they are asking to do it , he is not the brightest light out there , i explained to him, because your car went in for a recall 2 month ago, they have all your details on database, and they are fishing for your custom [ every car i sell i offer to service and mot next year, at a fixed price] . Had to explain, anyone can service , mot it, they are just fishing for business. [ my business ! ].
