  1. agreed mate, hate scratching around early on so anything around or above one a day is great for us.
  2. I am not going to touch any Ecoboost or Powershift Fords, ever.
  3. Solid end to September here (1 Saturday 2 Sunday) And a nice start to October (1 yesterday 2 today) Ticking over nicely. The two today a £7k and £8600 and neither wanted to test drive, asked any silly questions or anything, volunteered deposits and left happy.
  4. 3 today - all in last hour and two in finance On*
  5. Picked up this week but last week was dead as it seems it was for most
  6. We pay for our own but can’t see the point in keeping a separate pot as it were surely that money is better invested in stock than just sitting there??
  7. We got off the mark with 2 yesterday, two more umming & arring and an appointment today so not bad at all
  8. Put it in your advert and then they cannot argue.
  9. Oh we've sold a few cheap estates to Africa actually but they've not flown over, normally someone done the deal for them in this country. I think they strip the cars and fill them with electronic goods then ship them over, the cars are still worth something over there and it's much cheaper than a container.
  10. Vauxhall Signun 2.8t to a guy that flew from Germany and drove it back. And sold a couple to France.
  11. Super - looks a lot of car for the money. Good luck with it
  12. We tried to take a deposit pending acceptance at one point Just incase we went through all the paperwork, got them accepted and still they wanted a little think. Now we just don't bother and take it all on the chin as part of the job.
  13. We hit a sticky patch mid month but then sold 9 in last four days, so it's been fine really.
  14. sorry ignore me, thought you meant raising finance. One of those days
  15. How much would you want? I'd just borrow it from the bank (if you can). If you borrow over 7k you get the better interest rates.
  16. That seriously affects value then as that’s their main selling point imo
  17. What year is the C'eed, only issue I could see if if that invalidates the Kia warranty or not (presuming car is younger than 7 years).
  18. Our VAT month too, and pretty much in same boat, think we've done 11 so way short of where we need to be but we still have two full weekends to go so we could all catch up yet
  19. Mallard especially I think advertise the 150k. Tbf it’s not something we deal in but I guess there is a market for it.
  20. First Response will now actually consider diesel vehicles up to 160,000 https://www.firstresponsefinance.co.uk/finance/car-finance/
  21. I don’t think they are anywhere near as strict on mileages now. We’ve certainly had companies contact us that will look up to 150k on diesel vehicles - especially if they are newer cars with high miles. and 120k is certainly not correct as we got someone financed on a 2006 Hyundai Santa Fe at 126k just last month (£2390).
  22. Which is fair enough and he is not the only dealer operating within that school thought - though personally we’ve never had any issue at all within the 7 years we’ve offered finance. One mutually agree DEKRA report in that time on a Mini that found one minor fault (nothing like the customers claim as we and Close brothers suspected...)
  23. To be honest there’s no reason finance couldn’t be implemented into the procees if Simon wished. Still take the £100 deposit, process the application (20 mins extra work but worth it for the commission). If they pass great they collect like normal, e-sign the docs and you are paid via bank transfer as you request.
  24. We are of the reduce a couple of hundred till it sells brigade, it happens, sometimes even on proper well prepared cars you've sold 10 times over before. Also like to re photo is somethings been in say 8 weeks. Then the price drops can start at same time so taking it to whole new audience.
