I recently bought a Jazz cheap from a woman at work. 'It's a 57 plate, I'm just going to scrap it'! It needed a good clean, a heatshield fixed and some new mats. After that it looked great. I then advertised it cheap and it sold to guy needing a good car within a couple of hours. Within a few hours I had 15+ calls, messages and emails it was that cheap.
I enjoyed doing it and was happy to pass it on cheap again. A bit like Pete and Dud's affordable forecourt in the modern section.
I fancy doing it again and was going to go to an auction on my week off next week. I looked on the websites of auction places in Glasgow, Livingston and Bathgate(I think). Looking at the fees for the private buyer it didn't seem like it was worth buying at auction for sub £1000.
Anyone got any auction tips for sub £1000 in central Scotland? I can understand now why a tie up with a bigger dealer is so important for a smaller trader for stock.
