£5,400 2011 BMW X1 sDrive 20d SE 5dr Step Auto 2.0 - Reg ML11YUD


Image

From: - [email protected]

Hello,

I`m still selling the 2011 BMW X1 20d SE S-DRIVE AUTO which comes with new MOT and Road Tax, HPI report, low mileage only 41k miles with full service history, never involved in any type of accident, excellent condition, looks and drives great.
I am now based in Sweden as my wife was recently promoted with her work and we decide to move here during her work contract . We brought the car with us, here in Sweden, but my wife received a company car so we don't need a right handed car here, besides there are a lot of things which have priority now, so, this car has to go. As you probably noticed the price of £5400 is rather low but only because we are looking for a quick sale.

Thank you,
Steven and Jane.


Hi,

I attached the pictures of the car including the HPI check so you can see that has no problem at all. As I told you in my previous email we are now located in Sweden and the car is here as well. Due to the fact that I am very busy with my work and I don’t stay too much at home, we left the vehicle to a shipping company so it can be delivered to the new owner. If you are interested, I need the post code of your delivery address so I can calculate the shipping cost ( I agree to support the transportation charges 50-50 if that is suitable for you).

Thank you and let me know,
Steven and Jane.


Hi again,

The shipping fees will be around £500 but as I told you I agree to cover half of the amount so the total price you will need to pay including the delivery to your address is £5650.

Thank you and let me know if you wish to proceed further.
Steven


Hi again Ollie,

Considering that I am located outside UK and we can not deal in person, I suggest to use the security provided by Rea-Transport.com, because they have a great exchange program. To find out more go to their website http://www.Rea-Transport.com and read the material, it's a 5 steps process and it's all described in there.

The transaction will be fully under Rea-Transport.com surveillance, giving us both security and insurance that nothing will go wrong. This way you will actually pay for the vehicle after reception and inspection, considering that the funds will be held and released to me only after you accept and confirm the delivery. Do you think a 7 days inspection period will be enough? Within this time frame you have to decide if you purchase it or not. If you decide against the purchase you will be fully refunded without any added charges to your account. The vehicle will be returned to me if you reject it upon inspection, but I honestly doubt this will happen.


Thank you and let me know,
Steven

Hi again,

The vehicle will be delivered at your home address. Standard delivery usually takes 5 business days. You will receive the vehicle along with the V5 document signed by me, bill of sale and all the original books, full service records and 2 keys. Regarding the money side of things, you will pay to Rea-Transport.com the required amount, and they will secure it until you get the vehicle. You will be given a 7 days inspection period during which you can decide whether you keep it or not. If you are satisfied with it, you will confirm that to Rea-Transport.com so they can release the funds to me.

In order to move on please register on http://www.Rea-Transport.com . As soon as we will both be registered members I will post the transaction mentioning the vehicle details, the price etc on Rea-Transport.com website and confirm you as the buyer.

As soon you become a member please let me know so I can start the transaction with Rea-Transport.com and get things in motion.

Thank you,
Steven


Glad to hear that Ollie, I will start the transaction with Rea-Transport.com today and once is done you will receive an invoice from them where you will find shipping information and payment instructions.

I will get back to you once everything is sorted from my side.

Hi Ollie,
I printed the confirmation from you and went to the delivery company with it on my way home. The delivery company was already aware of your payment because it will be refunded.
They have very tight terms in order to avoid fraud. So the payment was refunded to you and the payment details where changed.
You will need to send the payment again once you will receive the refund and this time don't forget to send them the scanned receipt along with the signed contract which they have sent you.

Please keep me updated.

Kind Regards,
Steven and Jane


Hi Ollie,
It probably takes longer because we got caught up in the weekend.

I will go myself to the delivery company on Monday and check everything out. Mean time let me know if the refund has arrived.

Kind Regards,
Steven
