    So, ive been looking for a bigger van for a while

    found one this morning, to cut a long story short i spent 2 hours looking at it, test driving it, going to bank for money, filling all paper work in etc.

    Anyway it was 5 mins from my house so the guy offered to follow me back and drop it off

    great i said

    he chucked keys to young lad and said follow this guy back with van.

    so we gets in, pulls out of compound, CRUNCH!

    i knew what had happened straight away, turned round went back, young lad was gutted.

    Hed smashed all side door in and scraped right down side, was a right mess.

    Bloke say erm ill just give you your money back mate

    couldnt make it up

    I recon fate playing its part, maybe you went meant to have that van, maybe something major and expensive to fix was going to happen to it in the future when too late to take back. Maybe I just talking a load of old bullockx.

    Either way unlucky fella.

    Sorry to hear that mate.

    Got two friends down here who have bought new vans and had crashes within 48 hours......

    One was a 65 reg new transit custom. Hadn't had an accident for 31 years and caused £10k of damage at 15 mph........how I laughed.......only cause he ribbed me when I had a scrape last year. He is my supplier though so not going to cross the line too far!
