Truth, Moral, Facts, Karma.

Hi to all my blog followers,

I now update my twitter account more than I do the blog so please take a look and follow us on twitter our name is @acar2go, I find that you can update it quicker because they only give you 140 characters, more a memo than a proper update!

We are absolutely having it away at the moment, June is shaping up to be our best month ever, at the time of writing this blog update we are on 46 sales, I think that my belief in Karma guides me well as you get what you give and I only ever try to give good.

Hers's a Funny, True and moralistic story for you, maybe it will help to open your eyes to the retail motor trade.

A guy came into our office with a rather ignorant friend who was a pretend mechanic, we knew this because when he looked under the bonnet he didn't have a clue, couldn't even find the dipstick to check the oil!

He then test drove the car and told me that the clutch had only 6 months wear left in it and that if I reduced my price by £1,000 then he would recommend his friend to take it, I asked him where his clutch crystal ball was as I couldn't see where he had put it.

After a further 10 minutes of telling me what a load of cowboys us motor traders are, with no eye contact from start to finish, I asked them to tell me what I was pointing at, they both looked around and said the door, that was the only thing they got right, I walked around from my desk and asked them politely to leave and never to return.

The Truth: It was obvious to me they were punching way above their weight and that they couldn't afford my car!

The Moral: If they had been nice, courteous and respectful, I would probably have done something for them.

The Facts: We are all Ladies and Gentlemen serving Ladies and Gentlemen, we all come in the same way and we will all be going out the same way and in between we all breathe the same air!

Karma: What goes around comes around, you reap what you sow, treat others as you would like to be treated yourself!

Off my soapbox now; As a footnote I sold the car in question to an extremely nice Dubliner and his wife they absolutely love it and there is no problem with the clutch..

Busy day at acar2go

Hello again to all my blog followers,

What a great start to the weekend today was as 4 more people have joined the ranks of happy acar2go customers.

I see loads of people in this job from all walks of life, where else or in what other occupation could you meet such a diverse slice of society, today for example, a Doctor, a social worker, an optician and a train driver.

Everybody needs transport, when I left school and was thinking about what line of work to get into my Mum advised me to get a job where everybody needs what you have to offer, I thought about a job as Father Christmas but that was already taken by some fat guy with a beard.

After a lot of contemplation I thought that everyone needs to eat and started at what was then Windsor Safari Park (You probably know it now as Legoland) as a trainee chef, I was interviewed by Billy Smarts (As in Billy Smarts Circus) Daughter as the Smart Family used to own the land on which Legoland now stands. I still cook today but no longer get paid for it as my wife says that a Good Man should always look after his Lady and expect nothing in return.

Who am I to argue with "er indoors" anyway back to my story, everybody needs transport and until we run out of World resources to keep them on the road then I reckon I will just have to keep my hand in and carry on selling you wonderful people, super cars!

Best Regards and Thanks for looking in again.




Great Record finish to March for acar2go


We have had an absolutely blazing result this month which follows on from the Best January sales that I have ever had and swiftly followed on by an amazing February, so in a nutshell a record breaking first quarter.

I now have my apprentice taken on through the government endorsed national apprentice scheme which now takes our staffing level to 4, not bad for a small business which was started up in the worst recession that this Country has seen since 1929!

acar2go is committed to first class customer service and that is what we will be instilling into our fresh, raw candidate, I am hoping to make a permanent job offer to him at the end of his 12 month apprenticeship, as our time invested will then not go to waste.

Thank you for looking in, I have to go now as another busy Saturday is beckoning.

acar2go on facebook

Hi to everybody looking in at my blog,

I didn't realise that facebook was such a powerful outlet for me and my used car business, I guess that I have got a bit behind on technology, I have been too busy trying to build a solid foundation over the last 4 years, the muddied waters are finally beginning to clear as there are now 4 of us working here at acar2go which gives me a bit more time to concentrate on consolidating on the formula that I have created.

I have a webtracker attached to my website which allows me to see where the leads are coming from and thus plan better for my advertising and marketing spend, facebook has lifted my site traffic by more than 40% overnight, that's really quite impressive!

People often ask me why is my business so different or what is my USP (Unique Selling Point) I tell them that it is simple, treat people like you want to be treated yourself, believing in Karma or what goes around comes around has guided me well, if only more people could adopt this philosophy then we would all get along so much better.

I am also often asked by prospective customers, "Why should I buy from you as opposed the the dealers or any other garages, in a nutshell I tell them to look up "acar2go" on google, if they see anything that you don't like then not to deal with me, they always come back and buy!

This is a good benchmark to assess what other dealers are like, many would be very scared of you looking them up!

A Big Thank you to my son Harvey for helping me with my endeavours and for the anticipated help with Infornation Technology going forward.

Thanks for looking in again.

Happy New 5th Year of Trading for acar2go

acar2go is now in its 5th Year of Trading and doing exceptionally well.

I would like to Thank all of our customers that have bought from us and effectively kept us going.

acar2go is a local company that was started in November 2007 by me Mark Duncan, since that time I have given gainful employment to one then Two local people, I also only use local business suppliers.

In the last full year of trading we have turned over in excess of £2,000,000 Million Pounds, that's a big injection of shared funds into the local community.

I am now looking to take on an Apprentice/Trainee, acar2go is not on the same level as Lord Alan Sugar however we are a friendly, enthusiastic and growing company.

In the main we offer used cars from £1,500 to £12,000 although we can get any car for any budget, we sell anywhere from 30-55 used cars per month at a very reasonable mark up which certainly makes our vehicles stand out from the crowd.

At acar2go our philosophy is that the Customers must be treated with respect, we do not see them as ££££ Pound signs, when we do secure their business we ensure that if they have any teething troubles with the car after they take it away that we look after them.

When you look after a customer they feel valued and will reward your good service with their repeat custom, they will also be confident to refer their friends, family and colleagues.

It's not rocket science, the principle is Big money in, small money out! When a customer buys a car from us they are making a deposit into our bank account, when they have a problem we allow them to make a withdrawal, when they buy another car they will be making yet another deposit.

I think that the Secret of a good used car sales business is as follows:

Offer good quality cars at a fair price and get the car right for the customer in the first place so that we do not waste their time, the majority of the money they deposit then stays in our account.

Thanks for looking in again.
