  1. Its not organised at individual dealer level its organised by group / franchise owner. Small single site main dealers are few and far between and increasingly rare. You have to get into the big groups or alternatively try something new like bike dealerships maybe ( can't see the hells angels at a harley dealer being to into it but something to think about)
  2. Mileage descrepancies

    You will find they do it after and then ring you with issues like that private plate one you had where they think its a cat d or something else untoward. Always found it weird doing the check after purchase but tends to happen quite a lot.
  3. Eerily Quiet Or Is It Just Me?

    What a feeling, can't beat the buzz of a deal good work.
  4. If 2/3rds of your stock come back with problems right away just check you are prepping right. If you are and its just genuinely something has just happened we could not have forseen don't be to hard on yourself. If its a case of we should be better than this up the prep game. I hate bank holiday weekends, more and more. Had yesterday off in today and closed completely Sunday with Monday off. Im a grafter and when its deathly quiet is the only time I hate being at work. The lads managed 2 yesterday one was pre confirmed the other remote finance prop who came and collected. Bit of a result
  5. “Sold?! But what did it sell for?!”

    Its a question only ever asked by someone that would have never paid asking price.
  6. Eerily Quiet Or Is It Just Me?

    Id be in favour of it just being done and dusted one way or the other.
  7. Eerily Quiet Or Is It Just Me?

    Get rid. Few partnerships work in any form of business.
  8. Eerily Quiet Or Is It Just Me?

    Who folds first. Need to be good at reading people in this job. If you are a bad sales person try to become a better one.
  9. Car Gurus

    They want market share, name your price and see if they accept. Good company will go far and in ten years we will be moaning about their bills when AT don't exist.
  10. autogroup.com is for sale

    Well thats food for thought. I'll let you know either way.
  11. FAO Rory / VAG 3.0 TDI

    Thanks for reminding me about my worst loss to date. Think the oil pump packed in. It was an old Q7 2008 one.
  12. Bye bye autotrader

    We always ask the question where did you see it and allow them to answer. If their call or email came in before hand we have a bit more evidence. We also ask most did they only use that site or did they see us anywhere else? Being totally objective and looking at your own business are your adverts well written, cars priced to market, do you use video, do you have some feedback and reviews, are you playing the autotrader game so to speak. If its £611 per sale. I wouldn't be on here posting about that I would be thinking its not working for me, and handing in notice. Its ridiculous.
  13. Payment Methods

    A lot of them don't deal with car traders lucas. Get a proper machine mate.
  14. How do you pass time on dead days?

    Have a good break @Arfur Dealyits about 6 weeks until I go to Tenerife and can't wait for a week off.
  15. Payment Methods

    Its not that easy in reality. Same as Dave Horgan here.Lets say its Saturday and there are 3 people all ready to buy on site same time. If someone is leaving a deposit they can pay on card and then send a transfer in advance of collection. If someone wants to pay in full and drive away I have not the time to wait around for 2 hours faffing around would sooner just take the card payment and get them gone. Bank transfer is great and its increasingly easy to use for people but its not quite 100% there yet.
