Specialist dealer sold my car but won't give me proceeds

Recommended Posts

Glad this finally worked out for you Al.

I'm thinking of selling my car - can you recommend who sold your car for you?

Glad you escaped from this intact. I haven't done any research on who this dealer is but I bet I could guess. This is standard operating procedure for one or two people in particular: they have always done it.

Everyone talks big when it comes to name and shame but they soon run off when the solicitors letters start arriving. I have paid out thousands on claims over the years we have been established and also served as an expert witness where (other bigger) forums were sued for damage to dealer reputation. The legal costs are eye watering so name and shame is not allowed here as I am not open to picking up the costs.

Even when the matters expressed by an unhappy customer are facts they are still just one person's facts. The idea of a whatsapp group or similar to discuss this stuff is all fine by me as long as IB is not involved.

SOR is an OK way to sell a car but risky at the minute: so many dealers are just keeping their heads above water as the market has cooled down. I help people to find buyers for cars but a: I usually do not take the car away and b: the buyer pays the owner directly and the owner then pays me a service fee we agreed up front. That is a very simple small claims court claim for me if it goes awry so everyone is happy.

totally get that , not familiar with UK law - Im from Norway and you can say whatever you want here - you need to prove loss as the suing part , not easy to prove lost sales due to reputation loss.

I've just sent Flat6 a message about his experience as whilst this thread doesn't name the dealer, I suspect it's the same dealer I am currently chasing for payment following the sale of my car. I see Flat6 hasn't been on the forum since 3rd Jan. If anybody knows him and has another way of getting in touch with him would you please let him know I'd like to speak to him.

If you guys go onto this dealers Facebook page and click on the "Reviews" section and "Most Recent" it appears somebody else is suffering at their hands too.

I cant see "reviews" anymore. Just "posts" -  have they removed that section?

I'm not so sure they can remove the Reviews section.

It's still there when I looked

I reckon it’s what device you try to look on.

On my iPhone there’s no “reviews” section. 

But a quick google search finds it. 😳
