  1. Only major platform I haven't tried. How are people finding it? Though I might give it a go as sales are slow for me at the moment. Only advertise on Autotrader, expensive but gets job done. But even that is slow at moment. Tried Facebook previous but just a waste of time. We found Ebay/gumtree actually cost more than Autotrader for £ per sale. Anywhere else worthwhile ?
  2. Very slow summer, picked up first 2 weeks september now died off again
  3. Sold a car, don't have v5. Come to tax on v62 for customer, it wont let us. Any way around this? Car is currently untaxed, post office says error code 6006. I have heard you can tax with DVLA over phone is this correct?
  4. I have used G3 before always seemed ok. Anyway if I had a customer who took me to court I would never do business with them again. Simple as that. I assume G3 are taking the above attitude too. Even if you are right and would win in court, it may cost you more in the long run if you are losing a good source of stock.
  5. Thanks for reply's, will give them a try
  6. Any tips for making interiors, especially cloth seats look good in photos. I find on photos they look 10 times worse than they do in real world.
  7. Assume its an EX Auto at that price, but yeah they do strong money. We got £13k for a 9 year old one recently, he actually PX a 07 one in. As for ancient out of date engineering, give me one these over some newer german garbage or some tiny turbo'd engine ready to go bang. They run forever and theres a lot of older end who cant be doing with all tech. Another one that do daft money are the old yaris automatics the 2001 - 2005 ones.
  8. Same here been slow since Easter holidays (selling 8 to 12 year old cars) Sun out, can go places again, recession if you believe what you read in papers, a lot of people already changed car recently. We sell old cheap cars (thats what I tell punters when there moaning about a little scratch anyway),but they aren't cheap anymore, we got 20 cars advertised only got 1 for less than £6000
  9. Why does it change after 3 months? As far as I am aware there is no mention of 3 months in the CRA 2015 The only mention 30 days, 6 months and 6 years. I have heard from numerous people over years "a car dealer has to give 3 month warranty". However I am not aware of any legislation that even mentions 3 months.
  10. Got a 2011 Merc c class in stock (usually avoid german stuff). Whats best way to check service history and the spec/options of the car?
  11. No idea, just repeating what I was told buy a HGV driver.
  12. Funny you should say that, I sold a car to a HGV driver yesterday and he says there's no shortage of drivers.
  13. Occasionally get a car with no V5, all of a sudden got 3 in at once. I feel I should know exactly when you can/when you cant tax them. But I get a different answer everyone I speak to. 1) Can we tax at Post Office on V62 ? If so in what scenario 2) Heard you can ring DVLA and "emergency tax it" ? or sure I have read on here there is a guy who can do it ? One car is a private sale that is showing as taxed but they lost V5 One is a freshly repaired cat N write off showing as taxed One is a PX from motorpoint showing untaxed
  14. Sold a 2014 Mini 2.0d, customer had it a week and DPF warning message has come on but not the warning light. Car drives fine. Any recommendations for who to look at it in Manchester area?
