  1. Can you pm me the reg no and what he wants for it? Thanks
  2. Thanks, I'm always looking for Transporters of varying specs and prices. I think Im going to go for new or Pre reg T6.1's as the deals are pretty good especially looking at the price of used
  3. Looking for LWB Highline Panel van DSG with a tailgate. And a second LWB Highline PV for customers. And I'm looking for two SWB Highlines for myself. Prices and demand has gone silly
  4. I'm trying to source a few Transporters for customers, prices are through the roof at the moment, I'm cringing and wincing.
  5. Tell him the left falange is broken.
  6. Im not thinking everyone is staying in the UK post covid. Its something I have been wanting to do before covid was even a word. You do realise I am already in the camper industry? year on year we have had good growth, the VW scene is strong. We build the things VW T6's and £25k gets me a nicely kitted out van. My customers generally know what they want and have the cash to spend, Its very different beast to the car trade, which I traded in for over 15 years before I made the switch.
  7. I'll make sure they head directly your way Interestingly there is no NCB as we know it in relation to hire out insurance, and its a total stand alone policy so Terry Fuckwit cant ruin my own NCB etc. I wont be spending a small fortune on repairs, the hirer pays for any damage and excess, in the same way you pay a deposit when you hire a car. No shitters are going in my mobile wardrobes
  8. Something I have wanted to do for a while, £50k only gets us two kitted out vans and insurance for a year. I had a really good conversion with a camper hire company in Scotland today, picked his brains about as many aspects as I could think of.
  9. So who's taken advantage? We will being going for the full £50k, we have a plan to do something with it that will hopefully help expand the business in to the camper rental market. First 12 months with no repayments and 2.5% after that it seemed rude not to. Worse case scenario, if it doesn't work we pay the money back.
  10. Richard Branston? King of Pickle
  11. Tom Harley Jnr has a good YouTube channel. Very knowledge able about his classics. I could watch him all day, can't say the same for Carl Hartley.
  12. Just wait till next year till, the Ambulance chances will be all over it. It'll be the new PPI/Accident claim Where you forced to go back to work? Did you get covid 19? We can help you claim... Blah blah blah.
  13. If B&Q can open I cant see why a car dealership can not open.
  14. I bought a Huawei Mate 20 lite, was about £150 a seriously belting phone for the money, no worse than Mrs C's expense Samsung.
  15. I used to engineer an extra £200 in to the price, I think the most I ever knocked off was £100 to make the hardened bargain hunter feel better. The extra £100 made me feel much better. I think they call it a win win.
  16. Its new ones, so wont effect me. DVLA have stopped reclassing conversions as "Motor caravans" on the V5, best we can get is "Van with Windows" But its made zero difference to us, people still want campers regardless of what it says om the V5
  17. Don't spend it all on cocaine and hookers. Stick some away as it's taxable income
  18. Not had ours yet, although did have an email on Friday saying it will land within the next 5 working days.
  19. So long as we are able to pay we will pay. If the shit hits our fan and reserves are running dry I will be asking our landlord.
  20. 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.
  22. 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?
  23. 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
