  1. OK i know this is a little childish but when you have that 1 hour you just cant kill Whats the best games you've played or things you've done or pranks you've played on colleagues to while away the hour e.g. how many car salesmen can you fit in the boot of a 'INSERT ANY CAR NAME' Im sure some of you have played some crackers, especially the old dogs on here. (p.s. i am very professional in what i do, 99% of the time haha)
  2. thanks for all the comments, warm welcomes & kind words ive received ill let the mrs know that the cardealermagazine members are a warm bunch, big thumbs up!!! Yeah i think the plan so far is to give it a couple of weeks to see if its recovered first (unlikely but hey) then if not do a full claim they are aware of it now so like you are all suggesting, its likely to reflect on the policy renewal Its frustrating isnt it, we pay our insurances, and yet when a victim of crime we pay not only in £s on the policy, but also on the other things you lose in the car, on future security (cos ill be buying trackers from now on) and in so many others ways but these people tend to generally get away with it, madness!
  3. @trade vet yeah a disgusting thing to happen, some scum out there! Im thinking of offering a reward myself. I was going to do a YouTube appeal as someone might grass them up for a grand lol
  4. personally, its pretty much the same as BCA for me. For every 10 I buy at BCA i buy 1 from Manheim but it gives you more options so definitely worth it Bid weekenders aren't too bad as you can get some deals if quick. Ive had a few quality issues especially with Manheim Colchester and the surecheck is worse than BCA assured as its covered by Autoprotect who IMO are rubbish
  5. @Stalker yes ive a broker and planning on chatting with them Monday. I did the report today but just as an 'info' report @NOACROSS LOL yes we are going out for a nice steak tonight and she's recovering from the ordeal as well as can be expected yeah i think it will have to be a claim as its expensive enough but its due for renewal in 3 weeks too haha so interested to know what it might go up by. I think you're right, time to shop around for quotes
  6. yeah she's quite traumatised by it all but time will heal thanks for the kind words Its worth around £15k so a sizeable chunk Im interested in hearing if anyones had a claim of that size go through there trade policy how much it went up if it did go up
  7. Heres an interesting one for you all, this wasnt a nice phone call to get... https://www.warwickshire.police.uk/article/45857/Robbery-appeal-Kenilworth---woman-threatened-with-knife-after-walking-dogs Now she's on my trade insurance (dont worry i have domestic and pleasure too lol) but would you claim for the car My insurance is expensive enough as it is, and i guess it going to go sky high if i do claim. The mrs is recovering from the ordeal but of course, she's having some sleepless nights
  8. I didn't try this, be keen to hear if it worked for anyone as all i see is negativity around it I agree the likes of Motonovo are having a hard time generating a lot of new business so they had to try something
  9. Thanks for the warm welcome all If an admin wants to close the thread and ill join in on other forum posts Look forward to networking with you all
  10. Not sure id want a life-size cut out of Clarkson too though lol
  11. Hi Thanks for your feedback, appreciated My business has many parts to it so my business revenue is from several sources Ill probably not go into evert bit of detail here Just wanted to join the site and get involved An admin is more than welcome to close the thread and ill jump in and contribute thanks mate
  12. Thanks, Rory Appreciate the warm welcome and kind words. Hopefully, Ill be able to contribute and give back to the forums too YouTube has been good to me. Its really helped grow my business. I appreciate some of my content isnt for everyone but i do have a couple of videos ill post on the forums that may well help. I did one recently about doc ref numbers, which sounds like a right old boring video, but its more about how easy it is for fraudsters to target motor traders and rip them off. Its a true story that happened to me. YouTube revenue is really poor, but the people it brings you in contact with often turn into customers Anyway im waffling, thanks for the welcome
  13. I buy stock at every price point, so a £30k car may have the best part of £6k of VAT if its qualifying or if its Margin, zero VAT so the bill gets big quickly
  14. Personally, I use Warrantywise. Always found them fair. Only ever had one issue and Lawrence Whittaker called me personally to discuss so that was appreciated. People know the brand too and that makes a difference.
