  1. All very interesting. Great replies.
  2. This might be a daft question but if I have a vehicle that is currently in trade under my company name and I am selling it within trade to another trader, is there a way of doing this online? Previously you just used to hand the V5 over with a receipt as there was no proper system or records. However on DVLA online site under 'Tell DVLA you have sold, transferred or bought a vehicle' there doesn't seem to be an option to actually transfer within trade. The only options are to either 'buy a vehicle into trade' but its already in trade, or 'sell a vehicle out of trade' which doesn't achieve anything either. What do others do? Advice appreciated.
  3. I had this before exactly the same and it turned out that 2 totally different cars were being updated under the same VIN because they were using current registration and a previous registration that was now on a totally different car. Took some delving but HPI got it removed in the end.
  4. They want to pay on a credit card I assume as they don't have the funds to simply do a bank transfer. If you do your checks and addresses, names etc all match up then I see no reason not to go with it. You could ask for a couple of forms of ID to confirm address. Good luck.
  5. I phoned DVLA with the customer present and asked them to confirm the most recent issue date which was the same as the V5.
  6. I have had this several times. DVLA have simply not updated HPI of the most recent new document date. Not helpful especially when customer cannot speak to DVLA. The most recent V5 issue date used to show when you do a DVLA vehicle check but it does not seem to provide it any more.
  7. Impressive. Even if just to get confirmation of a specific models value across all the sites. Will watch with interest as it progresses.
  8. I had the same problem where I used to get charged 22 pence per debit card transaction. They then changed it to 0.23% per debit card which was a lot more in fees. I went to the trouble of checking every merchant provider and finally finding one that charged 0.25% per card but capped at 0.88 pence. I left the old provider, moved to the new one and 3 months later they changed the terms again and said they could not do the cap at 0.88 pence any more. When I challenged it they said I could move to another provider if I wanted without any notice fees (very helpful!) So I ended up in a worse position after spending a lot of time moving and filling in application forms. To my knowledge, no one is offering a fixed or capped price now for debit cards. Sell a car for £15K and its nearly £40 to accept a debit card. If anybody has found a provider with more favourable terms I would also be interested to know.
