Hi, my name is Jonathan, I'm looking for some advice regarding entering the motor trade. When I was 21 I set up a small car dealership (childhood obsession). Sadly due to the cost of insurance at that age (4k with Tradex) and me being very Naive I didn't last very long, I had no contacts, and the one dealer I did find just gave me all his crap, and my dream quickly went down the toilet. So, I am just about to turn 25, and have just sold the business I've been building for the last 3 years (non motor trade related) which some may say is a mistake but my passion is still with cars and I'm hoping that now I have a much wiser head on my shoulders and more business sense I can make a better go of it. I don't want to jump in to this again without getting all the advice I possibly can, hence why I'm here. I have some premises lined up, warranty company, Insurance, and also a repair garage at trade rates to sort servicing e.t.c. What I'm really looking for is some trade contacts who can send a few cars my way or point me in the right direction at least. I have an account with BCA but their fee's are excessive and most of the advice I've read about them isn't good. I don't expect to get rich, nor do I really want to, I just want to feed the wife and kids and do the job I have a passion in I know at 24/25 years old I'm still young, but please don't judge me on my age (my wife tells me I'm a boring old man) which I take as a compliment but in all honesty I am a professional, hard working individual. so any positive advice would be very much appreciated. Kind Regards.
