  1. Genuinely couldn't care less who buys what or how they pay. Just try and sell as many as I can each month.
  2. Haha no but it has felt like that this month....quiet days then they come in patches
  3. 3 appointments 3 sales today Needed that - March back on track
  4. First dip of the year this panic but it's not nice to be slow.
  5. Same experience with council owned units. Found a couple in Notts that would have fit the bill before I moved here, but flat out rejected for motor trade use. Wouldn't even engage in conversation... This was 4 years still empty and one got let about a year ago!
  6. You can’t service a car without opening the bonnet can you? zero chance of rejection here
  7. 30 day right to reject - burden of proof is reversed for this to apply ie they have to prove the fault existed at the time the car was supplied this isn’t us being arsey but the law. So if they can prove fault was present at time of sale then they may have a case but still probably not with such a trivial issue. did you service the car for sale btw?
  8. You must fight against the health check. Two examples - Vectra about 6 years ago, customer got home from collection and phoned saying Air Con not working. We agreed them to nip it back but instead they booked it in at Main Dealer....told them pump and condenser knackered and wanted to bill us £1100. I said no way that's crazy. Eventually after endless phone calls got it back and into local specialist. 1 £37 re=gas later system was up and running fine with no leaks or anything. Crazy. V50 last year sold down south to the coast. Guy took it into Volvo and they said it needed £3,700 to make it good. Car had only done 45,000 approx and drove lovely. I could not convince this guy at all so in the end I gave in, went myself to collect it and drove it back to Derby 3 hours, MOT'd it next day.....passed with flying colours except for a very slightly cracked coil spring. Sold again 3 days later and the customer that bought it has since left us a glowing 5* review and his brother has had another one from us too! Can't give in to the main dealers, certainly never pay them. Daylight robbery.
  9. Tardis after I briefly looked into it....turned up today looks good.
  10. bit behind but we always do well with Kia Souls
  11. 3 today...11 for the month really happy at the minute
  12. Did one today so makes it our best February in last 4 years. Pretty pleased tbh
  13. the music absolutely killed me lol AD what about an old skool eBay auction? You don't have to worry about anyone seeing an inflated advertised price and hopefully it will make it's true value (whatever that is...).
  14. We’ve had two CAT D 7 seaters in last month in PEX Touran and Mazda 5. Both sold quickly and without much fuss at all but I wasn’t greedy...both over 125,000 miles too
  15. That’s brilliant mate well done Our record was two consecutive days of 7 when we were on Pride Park near the football ground. Not got anywhere near that since (did 56 that month - still our record). This is 6 years ago now... since I’ve been on my own then 5 is also my record but the 5 felt better than the 14
  16. It's a Volvo - Volvo buyers want proper cars even at lesser end, so personally I'd get it done properly and that clearly needs a new piece. If you get that bodged it will look horrendous. £100 is no brainer to me.

    Yeah within an hour or so generally, we do a spreadsheet at the end of each month, so happy to post it up at end of Feb and see exactly how far people have travelled for both fuels.... The good thing about being in Derby/Notts area is we are smack bang in the middle....good for getting cars transported and good for customers.
