My worst customer (by worst I mean a chancer trying for a few quid back) is on the most expensive vehicle I’ve had in a while - a £12K commercial.

By cheap cars I mean the 2-5k market 

They might seems cheap to you but depending upon what you stock you’ll soon learn £2-5K is a lot of money to plenty of people. 
Tbh the price bracket is irrelevant as arseholes, penny-pinchers & dreamers are attracted to all price ranges. However there are also plenty of nice, decent & pleasant people out there. The knack is sorting one from the other.

If I’m honest £2-5k is a lot of money to myself included. 
 

arseholes are everywhere as long as they part their money and move on I’ll be happy :lol:

Not a bad crowd the £4/5 ,000 seem quite ordinary , not much expectations , usually a drive to work car or second car group 

The 2k Crowd make me laugh , expecting a new car for what is effectively push bike  money , how very dare you sell that lot a car with used tyres :lol:.

Takes all sorts and the best bit of Advice as BHM stated , SORT OUT the customers YOU want  , Not the other way round or nightmares will follow you .

The best advice as above is deciding who YOU want to sell to, NOT letting idiots BUY FROM YOU. Arseholes in all price categories but if you sense champagne taste on lemonade money, be blunt and suggest they shop elsewhere. And never put yourself in a position where you are desperate for anyones money. Because they can smell it.

Bang on that Matt, control the sale and don't let them control it, had it yesterday with a battered 05 vivaro,the cheeky fooker was quite forceful and wanted me to tax it and leave it on my insurance so he could use it for a fishing competition this weekend then added I could take it off Monday as he'll be parking it up to convert it... he didn't grasp the fact it was only covered for accompanied test drives even if I wanted too and was genuinely shocked I wouldn't do that for him.
