  1. You may have lost a potentional customer, but you may also have saved yourself a lot of grief if he had bought it. Always another customer somewhere. Certain types of vehicles always attract a certain type of customer. We only sell vans.....but nearly always steer clear of VW vans ( unless a real genuine bargain ) VW van buyers can be a real pain, there expectations are always to high, and there budget to low.
  2. Hi, I have noticed there are a lot more provisionals at the auctions, we mainly use Manheim. The prices seem to be easy off a bit.....about time. Bought a couple this week at ok money.......still seem high but compared to the current prices not bad. Anyone else noticed the same?
  3. Same here, have a good one and a happy new year everyone
  4. If you are buying vans I would avoid the earlier Renault Trafic, Vivaro, same van..... had lots hassle with these, to the point of I don't stock them any more
  5. The DVLA are definitely on the ball lately. Did a plate transfer and got the new v5 in 3 days. Also sent a v62 off and got the new v5 within 5 days. All the v5 we are doing online , for new customers, seem to be issued with a week
  6. Totally agree. I,m waiting on a delivery from Manheim today. I paid in full last Wednesday, and was told delivery will be today. Just called them and got usual covid excuse on why they cannot delivery today as agreed. I ask them when they can deliver and they said they don;t know, maybe later this week!!!! Due to you know what!
  7. Covid -19, The biggest excuse ever for lazy, incompetent service/work there has ever been.
  8. If you scroll through the forum you will find lots of advice given ,to a similar question to yours. good luck
  9. It is the same with vans ( we only sell vans)...even real junk Vauxhall Vivaros ( never touch them ) with 160k miles going for £1000 over cap clean. Hopefully will all settle down soon
  10. Totally agree with that one. I'm not sure it would be worth the time and effort needed, starting from scratch , to try and make a living in that select market. I have a passion for classic/retro cars. but would not be able/have the patience to deal with the type of customer they attract . That said, you seem determined and I hope it works well for you
  11. most stores sell hand sanitizer now, about £2 -£3,
  12. Wherever possible I like to watch/ hear the vehicle starting......pre corrona auction days....have been caught out few times buying a poor starter, which can mean an expensive repair like fuel pump. Not always possible to see them start if your busy looking around, but it does help. The trained eye can easily spot dodgy paint/panels etc.
  13. good point justina, personally we have had lots more enquirers in the last week. Spoke to our warranty rep today and he said business is picking up, which is a good sign, he has about 60 accounts/dealers on his books
  14. We had a van MOT today, and the guys there do MOT for a local VW main dealer. He said the VW dealer have opened, but are running on a skeleton staff...only one person per department...1 in sales...1 in workshop....1 in the office Not sure buy a brand new car is the top of peoples priorities at the moment......probably some heavy discounting on way
  15. It's basically free money for 12 months! Don't get that very often. Used wisely should help a lot of businessess
