We charge £40 to retail & £30 to trade with free retest. We have not gone live and as yet have had no indication as to when we will,however mot pricing is under review & its looking most likely that we will follow vosas recommendations across the board & charge full retail to all with full retest fee if taken away for repair & free retest if left for repair.
We originally agreed to charge £30 to trade primarily because we are close to a site retailing 30-40 units per month.We(loosely)agreed to pdi & mot there cars.Over the last year we have seen pdi,s dwindle to perhaps 4-5 per month & 15 mot,s last month.Turns out they are letting cars go out without so much as a basic safety check (i wonder if there customers know)not to mention the company that warranty them.
The thing that really gets my goat is that they are always pleading poverty and yet the boss has had 10 weeks off this year so far ???
Huh...My business partner and i work 6-7 days a week, he,s had a long weekend in Spain and i might get a week off to move house in July.
