  1. My two cents for what it's worth - Echo as above, pictures aren't ideal with the shadows and background, but you've got the right idea with stylish angles and close ups etc. If you can take some pics outside your unit with a basic background or even a company banner, it works a treat. Handbrake off and seatbelt on when taking close ups of the dash, keep any warning lights off or it can put some people off! Website is a basic Autotrader one, they're crap at the best of times, get yourself on Car dealer 5, best option for a smaller dealer, great looking websites that have good SEO with top packages. Try adding some chill music to the videos or do some talking, I spent time trying to figure out if youtube was muted or my laptop volume was down rather than looking at the video. Take the trade plate out the window for the vids too. If you can take the vids in a more private location rather than a public car park that'd be great too. Ad text could do with some lengthening, some people love to read, others will still ask basic questions that are in there anyway I love the company name and minty green colour, stands out from the rest. You're on the right track, only you'll know what stock sells quickly. All depends what sort of people are looking at your ads and website and if they're local etc. Trial and error works wonders with this. Best of luck, great start, just needs some fine tuning.
  2. https://thecomplianceguys.co.uk/ Really good chaps
  3. Vcheck are pretty good, Motorcheck you need a trade account to view the reports
  4. Put a few examples up, I'm sure folk will give you some good pointers
  5. It's all too hard to get anything from BCA, I think it's not too bad if you raise the issue on collection as you can show them the fault, but a nightmare if you get them delivered
  6. +1, get an accountant that has knowledge of motor trade, don't skimp out on a good accountant!
  7. I went from the standard package down to the starter package in Jan of this year, no difference at all. Then went up to advanced in October as a test and sold less that I had in previous months. Now back onto standard package and have been arguing with Autotrader on a weekly basis as they believe I need to spend more money with them to sell more..... even though the advanced package made no difference, if not is was worse. Also, if everyone is on the higher packages, nobody has an advantage? It's just Autotraders way of squeezing more money out of you.
  8. Personally, I think it'd be easier to put a second hand seat in from a breakers yard, unless it's a weird colour combo with heated leather that you'll never be able to find. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MINI-COOPER-R56-Sport-Half-Leather-Black-Interior-Front-Right-Seat-Driver-O-S/252782525865?_trkparms=aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D225076%26meid%3D1b4b30cfcd0b442aa41e37aa29145585%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D12%26mehot%3Dsb%26sd%3D262866075467%26itm%3D252782525865%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D0%26pg%3D2047675%26algv%3DSimplAMLv5PairwiseWebWithDarwoV3BBEV2b%26brand%3DMini&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851 £100 delivered, I reckon by the time someone's repaired it for a similar price, you'd have the second hand seat in and the car advertised.
  9. All second hand cars, you'd be better off with a pushbike or walking
  10. Don't forget that all important admin fee for printing off some paper
  11. Put it this way, If I went to a restaurant and they charged me for ketchup, I'd up and leave. What happens if someone won't pay for the fuel in the car? Are you going to drain it out?
  12. "I'm not a messer" "I'm in the trade" "My mates a mechanic/ In the trade" "Can you beat this fake finance quote with 1% APR even though I haven't worked in 5 years and have several CCJ's against me?" "I'm not looking to buy, just to test drive" "So are you a car dealer or just flipping these for a profit?" "Do you take paypal?" "Can I have it next week without leaving a deposit?" "Can I pay you £10 a week?" "Can I take it away now if I pay you half now and the other when I get paid" Take your pick
  13. Sticky EGR Valve, coked up intake, glow plug / glow plug relay problem, take your pick
  14. You need to send them a request via autotrader with their name and email. Click on the 3 dots to the left of the pic of the car on the main stock profile screen, should come up with edit vehicle, boost vehicle and request review. And before you say it, yes, I sell alot of M Sports
