  1. If you scroll through the forum you will find lots of advice given ,to a similar question to yours. good luck
  2. It is the same with vans ( we only sell vans)...even real junk Vauxhall Vivaros ( never touch them ) with 160k miles going for £1000 over cap clean. Hopefully will all settle down soon
  3. Totally agree with that one. I'm not sure it would be worth the time and effort needed, starting from scratch , to try and make a living in that select market. I have a passion for classic/retro cars. but would not be able/have the patience to deal with the type of customer they attract . That said, you seem determined and I hope it works well for you
  4. most stores sell hand sanitizer now, about £2 -£3,
  5. Wherever possible I like to watch/ hear the vehicle starting......pre corrona auction days....have been caught out few times buying a poor starter, which can mean an expensive repair like fuel pump. Not always possible to see them start if your busy looking around, but it does help. The trained eye can easily spot dodgy paint/panels etc.
  6. good point justina, personally we have had lots more enquirers in the last week. Spoke to our warranty rep today and he said business is picking up, which is a good sign, he has about 60 accounts/dealers on his books
  7. We had a van MOT today, and the guys there do MOT for a local VW main dealer. He said the VW dealer have opened, but are running on a skeleton staff...only one person per department...1 in sales...1 in workshop....1 in the office Not sure buy a brand new car is the top of peoples priorities at the moment......probably some heavy discounting on way
  8. It's basically free money for 12 months! Don't get that very often. Used wisely should help a lot of businessess
  9. Not sure how reliable, accurate, cap will be at the present time.....who knows where the market is heading! If you intend to sell similar stock all the time you will soon get a good feeling on what the market prices are, rather than just using cap.

    I had a Europcar rental car delivered to me last week, the driver said they had a branch at Heathrow airport and on an average day at Heathrow they rent out 400 vehicles...pre covid 19... ...last week they averaged 40 per day! There will probably be a lot of ex rental cars on the market soon, if those figures or anything to go buy
  11. Hi and welcome Not the best time to start your new business, but good luck, hope is works ok for you
  12. From what I can tell we are a couple months away from a physical auction. Just cannot see how social distancing can be operated at a physical auction. Online only at the moment, always a gamble but there is no other way at present I bought 3 online this week, got lucky and all seem ok
  13. Have been watching Aston Barclay online auctions. They had a motobility sale yesterday, prices seemed well below cap clean, on average about £1500 below, some more. They appeared to sell about 80% of the vehcles on offer ?
  14. When do you all think a physical auction will reopen.....not just online, but going to the auction in person and bidding?
  15. I had a similar call last week, but from a van customer, he bought a Mercedes Sprinter from us, about 6 months ago, he does rubbish/ garden clearance, but has not had any business for 7 weeks.
