    I always look at certain cars on ebay etc, and have also noticed the prices are falling, not much but they are starting to come down.
    I reckon the smart dealers are going to shift the expensive gear asap whilst they still can.

    I think they'll tweak it down a lot. It would be interesting to see what they actually offer, if he was to take it wbac for the inspection.

    I've just looked at a couple of 110's on Autotrader and put the reg number and mileage in to wbac. Both offers came back less than half of the Autotrader asking price.

    I, honestly, can't understand someone spending big money on a stock defender.

    We all know that it will decay to iron oxide pretty rapidly, despite all the underseal claims.

    Personally, if I was spending, I'd want a rebuild from someone I trusted. All the bits covered in zinc, and all the ware stuff as new.

    A 28k stock defender will rust and depreciate hand over fist. A professional galvanised rebuild would not.

    But then someone spending 28k on one probably doesn't care. They'll sell it at 15k and go and buy something else for £30k, I guess.

    In addition to all of that, people will be paying a charge to drive them in all urban areas of Britain in the next ten years.
    And bearing in mind that the majority of the population of the UK live in urban areas, that has got to impact on prices.

    Let WBAC have it. They'll take off your hands, and pay the money straight into you account quickly, with no come back, no hassle should it go bang next day. ;)

    Got to disagree IMHO 110's always fetch stronger £s

    generally people want the 90s, most are scared of the 110 as they think ex commercial vehicle = shagged.
    Its the same with the series, you can sell dbg 88 all day long, but 109 much harder.

    That might apply to solid side vans but the 110 SW as in this case is much more sought-after and fetches a premium over the 90 SW.

    This is interesting!
    Since I put the number plates of the 110's I found for sale on Ebay in to WBAC they have continued to send me emails to try and get me to take the cars along to their local assessment centre. Their emails always contain a link to their new valuation estimate. The valuations have gone up £5K in 12 days :eek::eek::eek:

    I suspect they are trying to lure you in.

    I don't know anything about this operation.
    But my natural suspicion suggests to me that as soon as they have bought your car, they will pass your details on to their sister company, We Sell Any Car, and they will start pestering you to buy one.

    I doubt they'll honour the full online evaluation when you turn up for the inspection. They're bound to decide there's some fault.

    About 10 years ago I got an online quote to have my alloy wheels refurbished. It wasn't too bad a quote, but I didn't get around to doing anything about it. A week later they emailed a voucher for 10% off. I didn't think much of it and a week later another voucher for 20% arrived and a week after that a 25% voucher turned up. I went and got them done after that. Still look great now :)

    I sold a car to WBAC a few years back, they were fine and easy to deal with. Knocked £100 off for scratches which was completely fair. Gave me a good price.
