Putting my foot down and telling the caravan site owner that we're not prepared to play games or get into some sort of bidding war with a (possibly fictional, although I didn't say that to him) second customer seems to have worked. He's sent another communication saying the owner of both vans is coming down next weekend to finish clearing them out, and we can go to view the two vans on Bank Holiday Monday. He said if we choose to have one, he'll offer the other to the second customer.....yet in his previous communication, he was trying to say that this person had precedence over us.
Whatever, at least things are moving in the right direction now. It's not exactly been the best of starts, but we do really like the site and I guess the site owner is in business after all, so he was probably pushing it a bit to see if we'd bite. Well, I'm not a pushover and I think he knows that now.
Sounding promising. Well done for sticking to your guns. I hope the caravan you want is all you hope for. xxReplyDelete
It sounds like sticking to your guns had a good effect. Congrats.ReplyDelete
Someone did that after we'd made an offer on their house. I told them to sell it to the person who had made a higher bid! I doubt there was anyone else as they backtracked, but we still didn't buy it.ReplyDelete
Well done for not backing down. I bet you are going to make some very happy memories once you get that caravanReplyDelete
Now maybe you'll get somewhere.ReplyDelete
Good for you! Now he knows you will take no nonsense, maybe things will flow better again. Good luck for next week and the viewing.ReplyDelete
Good for you, I think you both know where you stand now, which is always good for any kind of business arrangement.ReplyDelete
