  1. For those of you into social media, and Facebook particularly, how do you grow your following on there (get page likes)? I see dealers on there with 1,000’s of likes, but just can’t see how you build that in any reasonable timeframe.
  2. Thanks Pete, I’ll have a look
  3. Using this downtime to do my first years accounts, I never imagined what a confusing job it would be. I thought I’d kept decent records in excel, but they just aren’t fit for this purpose. Just wondering if anyone can recommend any accounting software, needs to be something fairly cheap, like an app, as I don’t have pockets for a proper dealer system at the moment. Any recommendations would be appreciated
  4. Does anyone have a template for a sale or return agreement they would mind sharing? If so, please drop me a PM. Thanks James

    Unless the car is an insurance write off, why would they know? Traders don’t dismantle every car in stock just to check!
  6. I use Scholl Concepts S30 black, it’s a one step compound so it’s cuts out swirl marks etc, but also leaves a polished finish. It’s a great product, easy to apply, easy to remove, and one pass of the car is good enough - unless your selling top end stuff and need perfection. It’s quite expensive, but you don’t need much per car.
  7. Bought one online from Nottingham this week. Paid at the desk, women said are you ready to collect it now? I said yes and she radioed the guys outside, by the time I got out the car had been pulled up to the gate, and someone handed me the keys! Every time I buy at Blackbush it’s a nightmare to get the car out!
  8. For 420k an hour I’d do a lot of things
  9. These people must be thick as shit, sending architectural plans to car dealers through AutoTrader, if that doesn’t ring a bell what does?
  10. 4 cars at a time, selling 10 a month? Manages to find, prep, and sell those 10 cars in spare time? I struggle with 3 a month along side my day job. Either you are superman, or talking shit. I’m guessing it’s the latter
  11. Merry Christmas everyone, have a good one, and if you don’t like Xmas, alcohol is your friend
  12. What sort of sill damage are you talking about. Is this something he could done to the car in his possession?
