Re: Will I live to regret it ???
What is really annoying is my wait to get the Brera and i wonder if any of you have had this experience as i certainly havnt after 20 years of trading cars in.
I saw the car advertised on autotrader at a dealership in yorkshire so as i live in Glasgow phoned up and over the next two days came to a deal but this is when it gets daft.
I was told i will have to put my private plate on retention and get a new v5 document, tax disc and mot cert before i can travel down to get my car which could take five weeks, this has always been done previously by the selling garage meaning the trade in can happen in days.
Their reason for this was that if they take my trade in off me then they cant sell it until the correct paperwork comes back so it will just be lying at their dealership doing nothing. i then proceeded to bang my head against a brick wall by stating that would it not be better them having my trade in then they could at least valet it and have my money sitting in their account?
I also pointed out that the Brera im buying of them is sitting at their garage and also i will be putting another two thousand miles on the clock which wont affect my trade in price as the deal is done however it will affect their resale value not to mention the further price drop of it being another month older.
Maybe its just me but i have never heard anything so daft as this situation as apart from me being desperate to get my car it is the dealership that is losing out with this unbelievable policy
