Sold a very high mileage (320,000 miles) but very clean VW Caravelle on donedeal.ie in 8 hours and got almost twice what I had been offered previously. Great site, might be even better now that buy&sell in in financial difficulties ( teletext this evening RTE1)

It's infinitely better then B&S, but similar to B&S it seems to be viewed as bargain basement. I doubt you would sell a €20k car on Done Deal! Then again you would be doing well to sell a €20k car anywhere at the moment!

it was a transit connect 06 going for €3500 and before you say its too cheap ....... it wasnt getting more valuble and ppl pricing there similar vans at 6 or 7 were not selling it i was happy to shift it

yeah, but how overpriced was the car you traded it in against....

well colm if i was to keep that car (if it was in good nick) in 18 months the average value of that car might sit around 4,800 - 5800 lookin at carzone when the loan is paid off

the van in 30 months when the loan would have been cleared off would have been worth 2300 - 2900 looking at carzone as well .

my plan was alway to get a lotus elise but i just cant justify the 17000 euro for a decent one not how things are at the moment , so i did that for the fact in 18 months ild have been much better off with a good trade price .............. but erm think u know how thats going lol

just from hearing about that particular garage that you dealt with, they're not known for giving massive trade-ins unless they're either shafting you on the car, the price of the car, or the finance.

i know i was shocked when they took the van only reason i went to them nobdy would take the van let alone give me a trade offer on it ........... fiat offered me 3000 against another doblo !!

autox cleared the whole loan ........ although the 1235 cash i gave them was probably more towards that van than the car

before they closed the van was cash price for sale at 6999.00 but in reality they say thats a cash price the finance will cost x amount ........... probably realised the coupe was a complete dog and would be better to shift it for any decent trade in

yup, a cash deposit would be to get the van out of negative equity. so the settlement minus the deposit is what they actually bought the van from you for.

the rest would be the cost of the car.

I think that call went in to the ex-employee, that was the way I read it anyhow!
