  1. 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?
  2. 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.
  3. Tardis after I briefly looked into it....turned up today looks good.
  4. bit behind but we always do well with Kia Souls
  5. 3 today...11 for the month really happy at the minute
  6. Did one today so makes it our best February in last 4 years. Pretty pleased tbh
  7. 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...).
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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.

    I try and stick to petrol but being doing a lot of Renault 1.5 dci and Peugeot 1.6 HDi in last few months. But we are on a decent run, only engine I'm actively avoiding in my regular stock is 1.6 diesel in Ford/Mazda/Volvo Of 29 cars on website at the minute we have 15 diesel and 14 petrol. Quite interesting this. Maybe diesel not dead after all....

    13 diesel 6 petrol so far this month, surprised at that, thought it would be more 50/50
  17. Big if though. What if you turn down the initial buyer and then the car sits for 2 months...
  18. Would you honestly turn people away willing to pay full whack in person though? Seems silly to me.
  19. This isn't that. You only pay for every day you are in it, no use then no pay, except £145 a year to have it open. So if I am in it for £1000 for 5 days, I would pay less than a £1. Ie 9% of how much you use are divided be 365 days gives the daily charge.
