  1. £50 quid a car xYearsales = a lot I stick £15 in max
  2. So true, sold a 335i BMW to sky engineer once for that very reason, paid cash too, said could hardly spend his moneh
  3. Seems a bit tight to me
  4. Why would anyone that ISNT a messer have to say ‘I’m not a messer’ - they wouldn’t and just crack on and buy any customer that makes reference to ‘not being a messer’ will turn into the biggest messer of all. Fact
  5. All my cars go on FB marketplace, I would say we sell 1-3 max proper retail cars a month, but who cares, it's free and I answer every enquiry. It's amazing for selling the sub £1k bangers SUPER QUICKLY. I mean if you stuck a 200k passat or octavia on you would get about 25 enquires within an hour. So yes personally I like it, yesterday I retailed a £3990 Ibiza through on FB marketplace, sold within 24 hours to a lovely local couple. So why would I ever pull the ads?
  6. of course, what a minefield we work in!
  7. What does it owe you and what's retail? Is there a halfway house to keep the peace, and you get a little earner out of it?
  8. They went nuts on price after they had their new building finished and fully kitted out I’m only 20 mins from them and had 2-3 1.3 cdti Ecus repaired probably 4 years ago and got change from £300 every time!!!
  9. Busiest Saturday I’ve ever had without selling a car. 2 collections from sales last week bought one from a private and took a part ex got 3 valeted and advertised but didn’t even get a browser in terms of new sales :/
  10. You’re overthinking it tbh worst case if you sold a £550 car to a total arse then refund and sell to one of the other 29 enquirers
  11. It’s just a guide like cap etc ? should they be banned aswell WBAC similarly
  12. The market changes. We used to live on Fiestas, Polos, Ibiza’s, c1s etc etc etc but you’re right the margin is very small on these cars when sourced through traditional trade methods - nor do they sell anywhere as quick as they once did (I’m guessing too much competition and ability to PCP newer similar cars for not a lot of money) so basically I’ve just stopped buying them. May keep one in at a time but based on the above a unit full of them is a recipe for disaster right now.
  13. Happy to honour my obligations under the actual law. Warranty provided over and above. And that’s that really
  14. I think the law is quite specific, as Nick says, if a customer highlights the need for the vehicle to serve a specific purpose (ie tow a certain caravan) and this need is not met, then they have been mis-sold. Will probably come down to paperwork.
  15. I had this once write a letter to the DVLA explaining who you are, the fact you have trade plates and the vehicle was being used in conjunction with your job in the motor trade. Quote your plate numbers. i never heard a thing again
  16. Up to 12 with a return customer today, took the old one bag in as well, 2008 Picasso 82k on it and still in same condition as when they had it off my 2 years ago. So nice deal. My target was 12 this month so I'm gonna revise that now to 18, not sure if thats pushing it or not/
  17. at least you can walk away though. The best ones are people who bring them here and say are you interested in this. I've had a few families I've had 4/5/6 cars from now and all sold well.
  18. Something doesn't add up. I am going to try Aston Barclay, remember to look at Auction 4 Cars and also the Facebook T2T group and maybe make a push to buy private. In fact anything I buy private generally sells in 2 weeks, so that's the true way to go I think and prep costs are always minimal.
  19. It’s totally ruined I’ve been a frequent user for years, now looking for alternative sources 2020
  20. It’s on dashboard then somewhere in there ivr downloaded and printed mine. If you can’t find it will give exact details tomorrow
  21. Just bought my first car off the new system 2013 Ceed in silver From BCC Bolton
  22. I’m aiming for 12 minimumcurrently done 5 Hopefully the period between Xmas and NY is fruitful
