I know BHM, as a fellow old sweat, it's getting beyond a joke out there, indian territory. Bought one this week, not a gem either by any stretch bit, a few quid I wouldn't of had.
I've been selling since 1979, bikes and cars. I know and understand that as car dealers we are pre-programmed to moan and whinge, too many cars not enough customers/too few cars too many customers, I will say that I've never seen a market like this...
Main agents, selling 12 year old crap thereby depleting stock on every level, margins a part time Gumtree pirate would turn their nose up at and, ever more needy and eye rolling customers.
This is one time I question not doing finance, never have and too late now. The only guys, I know, who are honestly doing ok, are nearly 100% strap.
I'm having month off, I've a garage project to get out the ground.....if I can get the blocks, the bricks, the concrete, the roof trusses etc
Just to keep things even it's not just us, a builder mate of mine is having a bit of a rough month again.....pointless quoting for jobs as materials keep increasing, customers not prepared to buy materials upfront (builders/car dealers all out to rip everyone off) , a few now seriously rethinking projects due to ever increasing costs/employment worries, had two jobs cancelled coming up to Christmas.....rang and offered to do my garage to keep his guys busy between starts........ after pissing me about for 6 month though and after I've gone elsewhere, builders ehh
Onwards and upwards though.
