  1. To many chiefs not enough indians and nothing spoils a friendship like money.
  2. 2003 reg started with EY53 billy basic in silver £4700 plus the fees someone really wanted this car.
  3. watching the same car was we ? seems like the rest of the country was as well.
  4. I can beat that audi TT in enfield this morning cap clean £1450 retail £2625 i had a punter for it and was going balls deep at £2200 -----nope i didnt even get my hand up ended up selling for £4700 plus fees
  5. Someone from inside the company would only be liable if they signed to be so other than that the protection of the limited company viel in most cases stand, and for partnerships my thinking is its far easier to allocate shares via a ltd than draw up a very long drawn partnership agreement which is almost always picked apart by solicitors when it all goes south. anyway almost put myself to sleep then....op have you bought any cars yet
  6. Not sure of your area but local auctions mainstream and small indi ones often have non runners in there which used to go for pennies but these days they command more of a price ticket but still could be worth a look.
  7. I was only being curious its your path to walk, i think the days of hiding behind a ltd company for protection has lone gone, any major financial implications these days are mostly covered by a personal guarantee from a director (apart from the recent bounce back loans before some smart ass fires that at me) if anything the accounting requirements and director legislation are a dead weight to a small business over a sole trader set up.
  8. Whats your thinking behind opening a Limited Company ? over a soul trader
  9. Chaps I meant let’s keep smiling no one wants to talk to a salesman who Is on a cliffs edge. I never said it was going to be easy .
  10. Why not ? A lot of families have had there holidays cancelled, been sitting at home on full or nearly full pay not been out spending. cant remember who said it from one of James excellent pod casts for every possible negative there is a flip side positive I like that thinking makes you feel up beat when your feeling up beat you make things happen in business.
  11. For the good old fashioned Ford Fiestas of this world i do the same as you, sod paying anyone to tell me what I can find out in nano seconds.
  12. Welcome and good on you, by all accounts the world is ending soon got to love a little bit of British backbone, you didnt give the vital bit of info as regards what you stock vehicle wise, cap is handy if you selling odd ball kit with expensive oe upgrades if your into bread and butter such as we do year in year out i could tell you each model in stock where the prices range from and to so its pointless. Let us know how the new unit goes for you.
  13. I think thats an excellent idea i was looking prior to bat carnage for just this kind of thing to take my youngest on an adventure all i could find was full blown motor homes which was to big for what i wanted, there where a few but took a four hour drive to collect and then another 4 hours back and four hours onto where i wanted to go...so i give up. I wouldnt worry about the negative brigade, i am amazed half of them switch the computer on without the fear of being electrocuted. Go big or go home thats the difference between the men and the boys when the seas get rough.
  14. I think there are different rules for different car types, for example the small aygo c1 107 family have a tendency to be bought by mothers of small children as second cars or first time drivers, so the first thing i check for when looking at them are dents in the roof where they sit there child whilst checking facebook ( i kid you not) and first time drivers hammering clutches. Apart from specific known car faults the basics i tend to cover are screen scratches chips always expensive to put right, nasty smells and signs of previous bad repairs, cars with built in radios I am also keen on as there a nightmare to get repaired or swap out. Think this list could go on forever
  15. Excellent answer there, i do not use Autotrader as it doesnt work for ME i dont see the need to bash people who do.
