Trade Plates TV: What you missed in episode one

Time 1:12 pm, March 9, 2016

THE new video channel Trade Plates went live yesterday – and received an overwhelming reception from the industry.

The first ever panel show went live from our offices in Gosport with Neil Smith from Imperial Car Supermarket and Alexis Cassey from Prestige Diesels Portsmouth representing dealers. The show ran for 45 minutes covering topics from disappointing January sales, what social media sites would need to do to challenge the big used car sales portals and customers’ buying habits after the VW scandal.

We were also joined by Nona Bowkis from Lawgistics offering her legal advice. Recently on the Car Dealer forum, there has been a discussion around the clauses which allow finance companies to decide when a customer gets a refund.

Bowkis explained: ‘We’ve found that some of the finance houses are too a bit too quick to side with the customer and that could mean that the dealer has to give a refund to the finance company because the finance company has decided to give a refund.’

To hear all of Nona’s advice and hear what the panel had to say you can now catch-up with the whole show here.
