    OK,so looking at selling corsa tomorrow and getting van Monday.

    Thinking of getting a partner with 850kg payload, but the van in question has central locking issues whereby it unlocks itself. I'd be travelling 300 plus miles for this,so looking for advice as to whether this will likely be a cheap fix?

    Reason I also ask is, van is a good 1500 cheaper than similar vans and only has 7000 miles (14 plate)

    Last question! These bungee cords are doing my head in! Losing so much time daily with Unbungeeing (new word?) ladders on car. What's the fastest way to get ladders on/off a van like above?

    Private sale Stevie, think he's a non vat registered trader though. It's on eBay item number 02194 6813 264.

    Need to enquire re warranty but you'd think it's a year left aye

    It's a good price and super low mileage
    It is registered cat d so that will reflect in price
    I'd guess that it's had a new door or something and that will be why the locking not working

    Yeah as long as has no finance I'll be down Birmingham Monday for it. So if any you gents that are local to there- fancy a brew early in the week, just give me a shout.

    It's currently sorn so make sure you get it taxed before driving up the motorway you can do temp insurance until get time to shop around
    Cheapest is usually temp over only takes about 5 min
    Be around 25
