  1. I would buy nearly new but try finding one without silly mileage on for its age. And the warranty is a bonus. But I do agree with the depreciation I’m not vat registered either so it a loss straight away.
  2. I’ve been looking for a tidy arb truck for a while (3.5 ton Isuzu or similar) and can’t seem to find anything I’d go for. Which leads me to think should I buy new? For my business that’s a big outlay I’m not sure I could justify yet. My question is in your experience does a shiny new truck with sign writing tend to generate a significant amount of work rather than my old cabstar with no signage. Basically will it pay for its self. Thanks in advance [emoji106]
  3. I can only see places for Enfield are there any for Preston remaining. Cheers
  4. Council have said that we should know what information to give them. As we ( the structural engineer are the experts) we can see some cracks in the render but I think the report wants to be aimed towards the soil shrinkage. I know the soil really sandy so doesn’t hold water. Don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing.
  5. I’ve recently had a tpo app rejected due to lack of evidence as the structural engineers report did not go into enough depth. My engineer seems to have given up so I was looking to submit myself. We have been asked to do a dig somewhere near the foundations and test the soil/water level. As the roots are clearly damaging the foundations of the property. I’m not expert in this field was wondering if anyone could give advice on what I need to do/say exactly. I have the impression permission won’t be a problem as long I send the right data. Here’s a photo of the tree next to the house.
  6. Well the whole rd is full of them (chestnut avenue) so they are all slowly dying anyway and compaction etc does not help. We have taken a few down but my concern is it being wind thrown. It’s a private committee that has to pay for them and they are also protected so I’d need to build a decent case in order to persuade someone to take any action.
  7. Yeah think your right is it something to be concerned about the tree is still alive but not in terrific health like allot of chestnuts.
