Autotrader Admin Fees

Recommended Posts

Looking for a old smoker for the stepsons girlfriend and have seen multiple adverts on Autotrader with £95+ admin fees

When I was advertising with them I was not allowed to charge an admin fee

Have they changed the rules??

And before anyone asks she only wants a car upto £1500 as this will be her first car and I don't have any that would suit her

Trouble with helping other people especially stepson girlfriend types is they either turn out to be eternally grateful or comes with lists of faults

I stopped helping family/acquaintances/the next door neighbour 2 down after constantly being let down by them in their requests in after sales and thinking I can waive the magic wand

Best of luck

I hope you are bald already;)

Autotrades rules are still the same.

Do whatever the big boys want.
