  1. Looking for sub 50k miles and up to 3 years old.
  2. This year I really struggle with what I call sensible stock.
  3. Never been so bloody busy. Sold my last camper on 25th October, bought another donor van on 28th Oct, took a deposit on that within a week, started in on the 3rd Nov, would have been earlier but I had a customer van in for a part conversion. It should be finished tomorrow but I have been paid up for it today and its going next weekend. I have another part conversion book in for second week in Dec, all being well I will have my hands on another donor van in the next few days.. Is bloody hard work and frustrating at times, but I dont miss BCA and dealing with dickheads.
  4. What does this do? Dont say grow saausages
  5. How about an interest free credit card or two? I know its not going to be a huge amount but some are offering long interest free periods on purchases and its extra funding you can lean on. Much better than signing you life away
  6. How do these people function on a daily basis?
  7. Im not a fan of selling without a viewing that's not that i don't have any confidence in what I would be selling... Its just prople are fecking wierd.
  8. Mine was a 2008 SXI 3 door in dog dick red 43k miles and clean as a whistle, sold for £2500. Advertised everyday day since March, one viewing back in the summer.
  9. I have an enormous hate affair with Vauxhalls.
  10. Took a deposit on an Astra I had since March! Thats it the last of my cars are gone
  11. Why does it matter if the plates are inside of the car. ? At least they are less likely to fall off an be lost if they are inside
  12. The guy I bought my latest T5 off on Saturday only deals in clean low mile 3 year old max T5's he told me 99% of his go to conversion companies he has no problem selling and doesn't chip on price. He stopped doing cars about three years ago and has never looked back.
  13. I'm flat out busy... Since I stopped doing cars. I have a customers Transporter in for a part conversion that will be finished by Wednesday. Yesterday I bought a 2014 45k mile Transporter ready to be converted and today I took 10% deposit on that van... I've not even bloody started it yet.
  14. Whilst finishing the paperwork the customer asked to use my loo. The toilet door was very much in ear shot of where i was stood with his wife. He didnt take a **** and we heard every thing.. And he was very clearly having bowl issues. Talk about awkward
  15. No words needed
  16. All it takes is one BMW pervert to get stiff over it. Last year I nicked a 2004 (54) S Type Jag. 3.0 petrol Blue with cream leather and hidious light veneer dash. (Stay with me on this) 50k miles full dealer history, clearly it had lived in a garage and polished after every drive, the hammer fell at £900 plus the BCA tip. I stuck a full mot on it and advertised it at £3495 just for a giggle. First guy who saw it gave me full asking price. And yes he was the Stereotype you have in your mind right now. Sometimes its worth being cheeky.
  17. Hope it all works out for you.
  18. Even if you said yes to his generous offer I bet it would be a no show Its not just the car game that quiet. I have two mates who are IT contractors, both are out of work at the moment. It usually takes them 3-4 weeks if that to find work and both of them are really struggling, its way past 3-4 weeks for one of them. Its never been so dead for them either.
  19. If I was still doing cars I'd find someone to share the pitch with. At £75 or even at One Fiddy ( Im so gangsta) a week who cares abut passing trade, thats what the tinternet is for
