I currently have my GSXR up for sale in a main dealer on a 'Sale or Return' basis. The dealer have had my bike since early September. I agreed their fees, and they told me that my bike was a very popular model and should sell in no time. When sold, they would clear my finance and give me the difference after their fees were paid. Fast forward two Months and they still have my bike, and have had no interest in it whatsoever.
I informed them last week that due to the bike taking so long to sell and that Winter is upon us, I may as well take my bike back as I am still paying a Monthly finance cost for it. They told me that this is fine but I would have to pay for the valet, and all the advertising costs....a total of more than £200. They advertised the bike on Ebay and Auto Trader as well as their own website, a total of 3 times on each.
I agree I should cover the cost of the valet which would be approximately £50, but am I obliged legally to cover the advertising fee's? Afterall, it is in their interest to sell the bike as soon as possible.
Surely 'Sale or Return' means just that. They sell it, or if not, they give it back. No formal contract was signed saying that I cover these costs if I have the bike returned.
