Marquis Surrey

Post by gemdeco on Sun Oct 01, 2017 2:40 pm

Hi Everyone
       Marquis have just taken over an existing site in Surrey,I have been thinking of upgrading my MH as I am too lazy to be sorting out beds morning and evening,so I popped along the other afternoon to have a browse I found a 2010 Autotrail (sorry AS Burfords are just too long) for about £42,000 ,So I foolishly asked about a trade in for my 2008 AS and was offered about £21,000 at that point I walked out deciding bed making may not be that bad after all.

I've been offered £22k for my 06 Nuevo against a £42k AS van so what you were offered is pathetic (Nick Whale is selling an 09 Surrey for £34k so assume an 08 would sell for around £32k) but its what we've come to expect from the likes of Marquis. I'm assuming it's Michael Jordan's that's been taken over that you refer to.

I was offered £22,000 for my 2003 Anniversary Clubman, against a 2011 Mercedes Devon, £39,995, a bout three weeks ago, when I started looking for another van. payload pathetic, only inquired out of curiosity. 

Think it depends on the dealers, I was offered that 18 months ago against a Peugeot Talisman. didn`t take it. Think a lot of dealers like Auto-sleepers especially the "0lder " ones as they were / are so well built.

Sell private Gemdeco. I've just been through the process using Autotrader and it was painless for me. Just ensure the van is sensibly priced less than dealer would sell for and you will get a private buyer. The difficult part for me starts now, finding the right van at the right price!!

Hi Alan , dealers have fancy showrooms overheads and fat well paid salesmen working to large mark ups to fund, you dont . Try even Gumtree, free to advertise and no commission charged  , put up plenty of good photos and be sensible on price but dont give it away. Sold my last motor home in under 20 mins from placing advert ! Got a lot more than dealers were offering and then had no trade in so cash sale position with new van . Buyers delighted as had just been a round trip that day looking for a new van at various dealers  and were put off by prices dealers were asking  and the shocking state of their stock, on calling to enquire said they would bring a sizeable deposit to secure if as described ( it was actually better than described). As I say costs nothing to test the market, at this time of year buyers have been to the shows now but realised new is just outwith their reach ...

Hi Alan
I think a lot of dealerships are over stocked with vans this time of the year, I made an part exchange inquiry with Todds on a 08 Duetto due in next month, I was offered £22k for my Sigma,   shrugg.
SmC Newark have one on their stocklist for £29995, I don't think I will be looking to down size for a wee while.

When we sold our last van (Autocruise) I was told by several dealers that I had no chance of selling it at what I considered a reasonable sum and by one London dealer no chance at all being in the far South West of the UK.

I put the van on ebay with a lot of nice pictures and it was sold almost immediately to someone from the Isle of Skye, about as far away as you could get from here. Whole transaction was easy and we met at Warrington to hand the van over and do the deal.

I then negotiated a huge discount on our new van, I would always sell privately if I could.

Back on thread a relative has just bought a new Bailey from Marquis Surrey and seems very pleased with the service he has received, got a really good deal after trying a number of other dealers. No p/x though!

From the address it IS Michael Jordan's. Quite convenient for me but I will still go to Mark for Habitation service!
