  1. I had a full time valeter for a while and so offered to do some local valeting for people in the village and the local businesses.

    didnt make owt from the valets as no one wanted to pay proper price but found it a nice supply of cars being offered each month. 


  2. £30 + vat per wheel for refurb

    £29.95 MOT

    Labour £35/£40 on mechanicals

    Smart man is usually £60-80 per corner or whatever, few buffs or touch ins generally £20-£30

    Mini valet £12

    Full valet or big 7 seater around £40 if seats terrible

    Dent man £25 per car

    You can't be everything to everyone.

    Some people will be looking for a boggo Focus or Astra and in which case, will have £5,000 to spend and filter by price.

    Other people will be looking for a high spec Q7 and price will enter their head a lot later in their little car buying journey. Some people will travel 250 miles to save £250 on a boggo Focus where as some people won't travel 50 miles for a better spec.

    So worrying about whether people search high to low, or distance, is a waste of time because everyone starts out at a different point. In my opinion, it's all academic and there are much more important factors to be considered in digital advertising.

    So true


  4. I've not found buying that bad.

    Yesterday picked up an 11 207 1.6 HDi allure for £2300, 43k on the clock, 7 stamps.

    Or is that too rich for some :)

    Then lucky enough to be offered a 2013 Clio  1.2 MediaNav in black with 35k, full main dealer history incl cam belt change. That's a regular customer of mine. Then finally a 2012 1.2 Fabia estate today with 54k on....probably paid strongest money for that at £3k.

    TBH I've got more cars than ever, forgot where I've left some of them:lol:

    EDIT the Clio....WBAC offered £4300, Cap clean was £3900 which I was happy to offer.....WBAC then knocked it down to £3650 due to 2 stone chips (car is 99% mint) so customers more than happy at £3,900.
