  1. To be fair on AT they only made £294,285 profit per employee of which they have 710. Yeh! maybe a tad excessive, how did I miss that boat.
  2. I agree, just less so about others that are/were on over inflated pensions.
  3. Metcars, my son is a fireman, they are always first on the scene when a shout goes out.
  4. A guy I know was a copper retired on 2/3 final at 49, that is one of the reason the force is short. Maybe someone can figure how much you would need in a pot to give £30,000 a year at 49.
  5. Mark, that was about Feb 1973 the day I found out my 16 year old girlfriend (now still my wife ) was pregnant, I was 17 at the time.The dents did not become part of my life until about 16 years or so later.
  6. 30p a packet for Dunhill when I packed up smoking.
  7. And those delivery costs are hurting big style, UPS, DHL etc. put their prices up by a third within a week of the UK voting out.
  8. I am a UK distributor for a USA company, it is hurting at the moment and sales into Europe which I used to do stopped over two years ago.
  9. Not a clue BHM, but I do work for a couple of busy traders who seldom retail but turn a lot of metal.
  10. If you are good at buying just sell to the trade, this may create fewer problems.
  11. I am going to offer to do 2 dents for the price of 3.
  12. You sure do make me feel good that I do not deal cars any more tradex, do not forget though the good times are just around the corner. So I am told.
  13. Have you thought of other add on's to the wash, I supply a couple with windscreen repair kits who upsell nicely, or engage the services of a dent man or smart repairer and take a percentage off of them.
  14. Not that I know of, I am the only one I know of that has got a history as a car dealer, which sadly for me makes me sympathetic of the problems you guys have. What I think is a good idea is when your current dentman says no, then ask another one if the only other alternative is a bodyshop, I know of many guys who if the dent will take longer than 10 minutes are not interested in it, why should they be as we have plenty out there to go at. Myself I enjoy the challenge and do not need to earn as much as some of the other guys and I certainly do not want all the rushing around any more. Being semi retired is fun, I hope you all get to try it.
  15. A cheap dentman is often not a good idea, a good dentman will save you money. You want a guy that will take on the big stuff as well as the small, the cheaper guys tend to pick and choose a lot more and you will likely get a lot more cannot does off of a cheap guy.
