  1. Thanks for reply’s , thought as much . Insurance company’s take the mick. We’re right next door to a pub so if someone decides they fancy jumping on a few cars gonna be a big bill.
  2. Does your insurance cover vandalism on forecourt cars? How much does it cost ? Is it separate to traders policy? Was wondering if it would be cheaper to fenceMy sales pitch or to pay for insurance on them.
  3. Never had a titan but I think the main difference I’ve found with cheaper hoovers is they break or loose suction quick. Every cheaper 1 I’ve tried has been replaced within a few months , I’ve had numatics last years . They all seem great at first though . Also you can find all parts for them pretty easy .
  4. Most use either a George or Charles , if you wanna spend more there’s the double motor numatic hoovers Auto smart sell g101 or brisk, g101 is an all round cleaner brisk is meant for upholstery smells better . Spray all over seats , scrub with wash mit / scrubbing brush dry with microfibre cloth then wet vac . Repeat until clean
  5. It used to have a canopy but the fella who was renting cut it down to fit more cars up there
  6. You know millennium motorcycles ? Just by there , I’d have to fence it I’d imagine The road is sort of in the middle , not a main road but gets decent traffic, just down from shops etc .
  7. thanks for the response , actually tried selling cat d cars for a family member a few years back Up there (for no profit more of a favour) And got nothing but screamers , put me off. Encouraging see that you can actually make a living starting from scratch . Gonna persist and start trying to sell more up there hopefully it goes well . Here’s one idea , the yard could hold bout 30 cars plus there’s secure storage in the back. Is there money to be made in buying breakers and selling for parts . Could you do that as a 1 man band ? Has anyone considered or done this already?

  9. Thanks Rory , nice to see someone else has been in same position, was my dad bought the pitch years ago was a car wash then the fella who was renting had enough and I took over . spent all my earnings on it and am currently at end of my tether . Would have gave it up a while ago but know the location is good and don’t want to give it up . I’ve actually had loads of Albanians asking to buy/ rent of me , but if I want to sell cars up there will struggle to get them off again . Well when my dad bought it was car sales .
  10. Tell me about it ,I employ young local lads and actually pay them ! Hence why I’m skint just pissed down for a month straight So havnt made a penny since january .
  11. St. Helens Merseyside, just on the outside of town centre , don’t think I’ve got the money to turn into flats. Was seeing a lot of artificial grass sales places popping up and considering that seems like less of a headache than cars but don’t know how long that would last . I think if I turned into a service station doing exhausts batteries brakes etc would do really well with the tyre bay next door , however would require building work and seems like would be hard to find a good mechanic .
  12. Is there anything you wish you’d done instead ? Do you know anyone who has changed their car sales pitch into something else and done well from it?
  13. Hi , currently have a pretty big pitch. Good location with a tyre fitters next door . Currently have a car wash and sell a few cars there. Anyway, sick of breaking my back working at the wash 7 days a week and thinking of going all in with selling cars . However got a few months before I take the plunge . Just wondering if there’s anything else that I could use the pitch for , any ideas?
  14. Ye might try to suck out too thanks , the oil pan at bottom seems like it covered Gonna be a pain to get at .
  15. Mercedes b class 1.8 diesel, fine when driving about town but as soon as reaches 70 , excess oil warning light comes on ? Any ideas? Not changed oil myself since I’ve had it . Oil seems clean not frothy ect.
