Car sales.... Not
« on: 05 January 2018, 22:42:36 »

I was in the Merc dealer yesterday to find out about the new E class petrol hybrid, and asked the receptionist for a sales rep. "In connection with?" She asked down her nose, (I was in scruff order). "Take a wild guess" says I. Blank look ensued. " Why do people come into a car dealer and ask for sales?" Nope, penny didn't drop. Departure in despair. I doubt she will last long.

I had the same at HSBC, had to go in to prove my income for a current account (the £250 incentive seemed worth filling in a form for). Went in dressed in DIY attire, some sniffy little man in a suit was very snooty with me until he looked at my payslip.

“Is this your payslip?”
“It’s got my name on it hasn’t it?”
“And this is the amount for one month?”
“No, it’s the amount I get every month”

I must appear more wealthy than the Signum owning pauper I really am.

Test drives in a C63.....BMW M4.....and a brace of SC 5.0 F-Types (RWD and AWD)  came without even requiring the salesman to sit in the passenger seat. Just a pair of trade plates and off I went.

The Jags had more soul. The M4 lacked any real go. A white C-class looks like it should be parked outside a German airport with a sign on its roof.

I suspect being dressed in mufty rather than an office tosser's suit, Shack looked far to intelligent to buy a modern Merc ;D

As a young trainee salesperson on a static caravan park, I once gave a rough looking family who turned up in a rusty Transit short shrift as I considered them a waste of time when they wanted to look at the most expensive £35K models on the premium pitches.  ::)

My manager gave me a massive bollocking and went out into the car park to talk to them before they left.  He brought them back in and then went on to sell them the most expensive van on the best site on the park.  ::)  To further humiliate me, he made me sit in on the proceedings and taught me a very valuable lesson which I have never forgotten!  :-[  ::)

He collected a nice wad of commission that day, that should have been mine, and after that some of my best sales came from those who looked like they were on the bones of their arse!  :y  Those who turned up in a flash car, wearing designer clothes and talking the talk, were often the waste of time, as they usually wanted to buy on finance which was invariably declined!  ;)

I had a similar experience with our local Aston Martin dealer, let me look round the cars but wouldn’t give me any information on the rapide as the salesman was busy and I’d have to make an appointment. for a broacher???????
By contrast the local Maserati dealers welcomed me asking what I was after and the receptionist, yes receptionist gave me a very detailed over view of the range and in-depth spec of the car I’m interested in!
For that alone they’ve got my business come bonus time😊

Some years ago we had a very modest house. but no mortgage. A good business deal meant we were in a position to move quite a bit upmarket. We spotted a couple of properties in an area we liked both with the same estate agent. He wouldn't let me view them. Discouraged me on every house I asked about. Didn't want my contact details. He couldn't take on board the price range jump.

I bought the house I wanted via a different agent, and 18 years later refused to consider using the same agent when I sold. Never pre-judge people. I now have a small business, and I'm always surprised at who spends the most.

I know a fella who is in his late 50's, about 20 stone, looks as though he buys his clothes from charity shops, could do with a good scrub etc, and goes round in a rusty Citreon Berlingo van.  ::)

I know that he owns and rents out about 50 odd houses!  :y

There's a saying, something along the lines of  . . . .

"Rich people stay rich by spending like they're poor

Poor people stay poor by spending like they're rich"



I can personally think of two people in the past, flash cars, big houses, bimbo wives (also with flash cars) etc. Both went bust, one actually did a runner owing lots of cash.

I used to have a mate who was in the scrap metal business who loved people judging him by his scruffy appearance, always paid for everything in cash , was with him in 1975 when he bought a new XJ6 for himself and a Rover 2200 for his missus , the salesman's face was a picture!

I had a similar experience in the mid 1980's where my business paid me a good dividend so I had a 30% deposit on a decent detached house as a first time buyer. Of the estate agents that I contacted only two bothered sending me any details and only one really tried to sell me a house which they did in short order and I still happily live here. :y :y :y

Our house is on the market at the moment as we are downsizing , we have been mortgage free for several years so in effect we will be cash buyers estate agents are still trying to tempt us with low cost mortgages, they can't seem to grasp the fact we don't need one, so no commission on selling us one.

As a first time buyer, around 1988, there was a housing boom which encouraged the average estate agent to employ a 'f*ck you' attitude. They could sell every house they had, often at more than asking price. Nasty little turds the lot of them.

By 1990 the bubble had burst and they were constantly calling me to see if they 'could be of assistance'.

TB will need to add estate agents to his cull list. The world won't miss them.

As I was passing I popped into the local Land Rover dealership to have a quick looky see at the new Discovery 5.  8)  It's a beast and I was surprised to find that it's bigger than a full fat Rangie!  :o  The 4 pot 2 litre dumper truck engine produces a similar power to the D4's 3 litre TDV6, but most importantly these days with lower emissions!  :y  It makes my D3 look very old fashioned, but I wouldn't want to park it in my local Tescos, so I'd have to pop into the Mini dealership for a Tesco's car with the change from the D5 on the way home!  :)

The salesmen and receptionists were all very friendly, answered my questions and let me wander around and get in and poke around all the models in the showroom.  When I explained that I was just browsing they took me at my word that I didn't have £70,000 burning a hole in my pocket and pretty much left me alone, especially when I told one guy that I have a D3!  ;D 

Compare that to a Chevy dealership I visited in Houston a few years ago, hoping to blag a test drive in a Chevy Silverado.  :)  Despite me explaining that I was on holiday and just having a look, the sales guy wouldn't let me go and clearly didn't believe me!  All buyers are liars as the old saying goes!  ;)  Didn't get my test drive though...  :(

There may have been a couple in there that were employed for their appearance rather than anything else....  ;)

I doubt they's want to mess up the Alpaca leather upholstery though.  :D

This is the sort of thing you have to cope with when you pull up in a Marina TCoupe, clearly. ;D
