  1. 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
  2. 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 - https://www.rjeautomotive.co.uk/used-volvo-xc70-ebbw-vale-south-wales-2330050
  3. 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
  4. Doesn't seem cheap to me (considering the issues you've had as well) £80 a panel here and turned around in a couple of days
  5. We've had a few NI cars and never shown as import on Hpi, I thought it would only be Irish cars that would show as NI is part of UK and although number plates & MOTs are different there they are issued with a standard UK log book??
  6. We sent request with proof and got access within a week or so. They never emailed back to confirm though, I just clicked and there it was
  7. Workshop is not as busy as we'd like it to be but it's ticking over consistently so taking the sting out of the quiet weeks. We did get rid of 4 cheap PXs yesterday so at least they're gone. Ryan's dad is pretty experienced in the trade, he was GM at Empress back in the day and managed plenty of small sites since so we're pretty lucky. We can go away for a week and relax with little worry. Hopefully, we will have some customers that he can sell the cars to!
  8. Still apocalyptic quiet here! Loads of fresh new stock which all looks great but nothing on the board yet for Mayl. Definitely the quietest spell we've had since opening in October. We are however going away on Sunday for a week and Ryan's dad is holding the fort, so I'm hoping to come back to a boom in sales!
  9. Extremely quiet since beg April here! no enquiries and no customers! lots of new stock so hoping it will pick up soon
  10. We also use Xero. Just as easy as submitting it previously, the click of a button
  11. the permissions section, from memory I think it's limited permission credit broking, then additional regulated activities debit adjusting & debt counselling (both with limitations). Agree as above though, finance rep will help a lot. Process is pretty straight forward but the questions are so far round the bush it's easy to misunderstand or miss something
  12. We use DA quite regularly and only ever had one real issue. Got there, asked to drive the car, crunching in 3rd but managed to negotiate £800 reduction and gearbox cost us £350 so ended up better off. Picked up one today (as described) and going to pickup another on Tuesday. Fingers crossed!! Like everything, you have to take it with a pinch of salt. There are good and bad cars on dealer auctions and the same can be said about the dealers on there
  13. We're giving it a chance anyway. Managed to do £260 pmonth for 20 cars for 6 months.
  14. We just renewed with ebay/gumtree combined £227 is an offer for customers currently using Ebay only (some sort of legacy deal) to get them to switch to Ebay/Gumtree combined. As we started with a combined package the lowest price they could offer us was roughly £430 per month + VAT for both, 20 car package (in reality it's up to 25).
