  1. Id do the pictures somewhere better than a public car park.
  2. That was a result, fingers crossed I have pre sold another
  3. Why do pattern bumpers and mirrors never quite fit properly.
  4. I know a trader who uses them instead of buying tax for his Range Rover!!
  5. They always seem to take ages to notify. I sent my cheque off as soon as I got the reminder and I only got the confirmation last week. I'm surprised they have not put it online yet, surely it cant be hard?
  6. I got a letter off BCA on Monday, downgrading me to poverty spec membership as I have not given them enough money over a 12 month period. This made my week.
  7. If you have the time trawl the classified adverts and try to buy some stock via private adverts.. Its always good to flop the cash out and hit them hard with a low ball offer!
  8. Id only do it as a friends or family gift
  9. Shit yes I forgot about "that" tax bracket on the 2.5 Kombi. Not a great colour to boot.
  10. Thats a great size unit and nice and bright too
  11. Thanks for the comments guys, as it goes I ran the idea past a the MD of a company have got vans off in the past. Big leasing company over Leeds http://www.nlcommercials.co.uk/ He said my biggest cost would be insurance and on a small set up you would do well to break even, and lets not forget you would need a spare van as a back up should anything go wrong. Last thing you want to is phone some a few days before the before their hols to have to cancel cause the last person cant driver or its had a major mechanical fail
  12. Id love to Build a couple of rentals over the winter, Rent out over summer then sell in autumn and repeat. It is something I have thought about, its how I would go about financing such an operation.
  13. Its not slowed down in camper world, I have two and a half definite camper conversions on the books first one is coming next week. The half is part 2 of conversion I started in October. So thats me busy till March, I dont even have the time to do my own Camper, one restriction I have is the size of my unit. One van comfortably fits in, bare in mind I need space to work around it and space to store fittings, which are far from small items! Bed, Furniture, bumpers, wheels etc. My space issue could be answered as one of the other tenants might be retiring, his unit is twice the size, so I have my fingers crossed. I think I would keep my existing unit though. My other restriction is my time and the fact I need help. I need someone who could pick the job up quickly, be creative and a good problem solver.
  14. Kombi's do hold the money well and 69k is nothing in T5 land. What colour is it?
  15. I just renewed my trade insurance and they wanted blood. They even wanted copies of licences even though I had given the license viewing codes. I remember a bit of a trauma getting plates, some guy from the local office came round to check me out. I guess that wont happen these days.
  16. Tom Hartley does £230k+ from home
  17. You will also be competing against Mercedes PCP deals.
  18. I did it a few years ago, spent time driving all over the place looking at badly described shonkers, so decided to stick to 10 mile radius. Nothing worse than spending time and money on goose chases. That said all my VW Transporter searches are national!
  19. From a very happy customer who collect a camper this morning. This should keep the winter chill off
  20. Give me back minus £100 admin fee
  21. Holy crap that wiring is erm.. Busy
