  1. Today’s podcast we talk to Nick Mk about crazy prices at the block, how to get a good deal and lots of trader talk! https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/car-dealer-pro-podcast/id1506252764#episodeGuid=CarDealerPro.podbean.com%2F96ec81d5-6448-5e94-96d4-edfd92c782b1
  2. Thanks for listening, some great stories! nice to hear the vendors have to take a pill every now again!!!
  3. Here we go, this weeks Podcast! This is a chap I met at the auction, I don't actually know the exact term for his job description but he would bid on cars for traders that couldn't make it to the auction and he would get £50 a car. Before he done that he was an auctioneer for Manheim for 9 years, then went self employed and has now returned as an auctioneer for the last 3 years. Lots of stories we can all relate to from the characters at the block to one vendor making a massive loss, hope you enjoy! David Up next Hopefully Mr Horgan https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/from-auctioneer-to-professional-bidder/id1506252764?i=1000476229652
  4. I administer them myself, I normally buy 100 booklets a time and they are great if customers just want our compIimentary warranty (normally 1 - 3 months ) I can’t remember exactly how much but I think it’s around £300 for 100 booklets so well worth the money. I up sell the warrantywise 12 month warranty, when a customer leaves a deposit I’ll give them a leaflet to ponder on it, I offer them it at cost price, if it costs the customer £120 for 12 months they know they are getting a really good deal, if they were at a main dealers it would be double.
  5. I always self warrant, might be worth having a listen to this there’s plenty of chat about warranties on this podcast we done the other day with nick from small cars direct https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/car-dealer-pro-podcast/id1506252764?i=1000474472263
  6. Big thank you to Del Boy for sharing his story, working from home at his studio flat with 2 cars to business premises and 20 cars in 5 years, hope you enjoy! https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/car-dealer-pro-podcast/id1506252764
  7. No problem......appreciated! If you fancy having a blast on the podcast just send me a DM I'm going to be doing one every week, every podcast will alternate, 1 week a 20 min info related topic to help other dealers and then the next week a long form interview with a trader, heres the link if anyone fancy's subscribing, its on facebook too! thanks. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/car-dealer-pro-podcast/id1506252764
  8. If your into podcasts, you'll know long form interviews are really popular and for all the traders on here just starting out this really is invaluable free content, I understand it's not going to be for everyone but if I had someone like Nick sharing this type of info when I first started, I'd be soaking it up like a sponge!
  9. Done a podcast the other day with Nick MK, some brilliant info in this interview, whether your just starting out or been in the game for years I’m sure you’ll get some great value from listening, if you could like our Facebook page or subscribe to the podcast in iTunes that would be amazing. I’ll be doing a podcast a week, interviews with other traders and helping car traders use systems and strategies to help grow your business. hope you enjoy Thanks David https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/car-dealer-pro-podcast/id1506252764#episodeGuid=CarDealerPro.podbean.com%2Fb6735dac-49d2-56c0-ad5f-7a7af9b5d2a6
  10. Similar thing happened to me a few years ago, I'm afraid if you didn't have it on the MID and depending on how much of jobsworth the officer is you might be looking at 6 points, sorry!
  11. Haha it’s not easy at first, it’s an absolute pain in the arse!!! Although It’s like starting all over again using one of those bloody gimbals things!!
  12. If you want to do an edited 1 minute vid instead of a walk around do 10, 6 second shots, then wack them into iMovie and edit, once you're in the swing each video shouldn't take more than 20mins
  13. Probably best to put it back through the auction you might get more than what you paid for it putting it through privately
  14. Your 100% right to always aim for the big margins and I always do but I just don’t see the point in holding out for big margins with anything that’s been in stock for over 60 - 90 days, get rid, get a nice part ex, a bit of finance commission or reinvest and keep the ball rolling, although I did see a great quote the other day “affluence breeds impatience and impatience undermines well being, you don’t see many poor impatient people”
