When is a dealer not a dealer! A good friend of mine who likes changing his cars regularly asked me to find a car for him been searching a few weeks but not found the â€˜right car-dealâ€™ , many times heâ€™s found the car and sent me a link to see if I can buy/deal ! This one has proved a bit difficult but heâ€™s found the car at a dealer at a reasonable price! The â€˜overall â€˜deal is acceptable and heâ€™s happy to do a deal. The deal is set up and I was going to go with him tonight to inspect the car / paper work and all being equal pay and come back with the car ( as long as both parties happy with both cars! ) my friend just called the dealer to confirm the details for tonight â€“ The dealer says â€œ sorry but canâ€™t accept card payment as itâ€™s my brother in laws car â€“ only cash?â€ so my friend rang me to say could we get the cash for him !! STOP! STOP I shouted. I asked my friend to call the dealer and ask about the invoice? The 12 months warranty? â€“ the reply was â€œ Anyone can buy a warranty you donâ€™t have to be a dealer , I canâ€™t do you an invoice as it snot my car itâ€™s my brother in laws and youâ€™re buying the car off him!â€ As you can guess â€“we wonâ€™t be going tonight ( we have told him) Is this a new way to sell cars? legal obligations? VAT ? Legal title / owner? Opens up a can of worms if you ask me!
