  1. Tom at RA Insurance worked magic for us this year.

    Courtesy cars

    I think its got to be one to swerve, we've managed fine without so far. Let them arrange their own travel logistics.
  3. Thinking of running a Courtesy car, got a cheap low mileage 2010 KA last week. Insurance want a massive £115 to add it on to the end of the Policy (December). Only thing that puts me off is risking our NCB. Thoughts please guys?
  4. Only last week my Mum decided she didnt like the bumper on her 17k mile 2010 KA Zetec, I kid you not the OSF bumper has scuffs and a small crack but they wrote it off. Shes 85 and actually decided to hang up her driving gloves and take the £3900.. Salvage price was £1130..... well it seemed rude not to. Plenty of preloved in colour genuine bumpers on ebay for £150 ish and a mornings work should sort it. Never ceases to fail me what insurance companies deem as a write off
  5. I just pay the account to do everything. £130 + vat a month. VAT Tax returns Book keeping Banking. He has all my logins for ebay, paypal credit card accounts. So any invoices I have not taken a pictures of they find them. No brainer as far as I'm concerned. It's like having our own accounts department.
  6. Mine dropped a little bit this year and we added on a few extra bells and whistles
  7. Its certainly keeping us busy. We now convert customer owned vans rather than buying the vans in. VW Commercial will give our customers trade prices. Saves us having to fork out
  8. I'm so glad I don't deal cars anymore.
  9. About 3 years ago we stopped having joint accounts.... guess who's always skint?
  10. Getting married to a woman who has horses!
  11. Tell them its £1000 more than the advertised price then dont say a word
  12. Over 5 days and counting.. still no police visit!
  13. I used Tom at RA insurance this year. He was brilliant to deal with. £1860 for a combined policy. Full comp road risks for 2 of us, £200k vehicles in the work shop. £10k stock, £5k tools, £5m public liability, £10m employee liability. Business continuity £160k p/a. Professional indemnity cant recal how much cover. £50k legal inc cover for a HMRC spin.
