Longest Trip To Buy A Car?


Last week i sold a V reg Vauxhall Astra 1.6 SXi To a lady from the Isle of Wight , thats a round trip of 550 miles and 2 ferry rides, sounds a long way to buy a car doesnt it.
however
Last year a guy came from the Isle of Lewis, via a flight to glasgow, and by car to Preston, his friend took the other car back to Glasgow and he followed in his new car before they both caught a ferry back to the Isle approximately 950 miles in total and according to Google Maps at least 18 hours 40 minutes travelling time not to mention the cost of 2 flights, a ferry, fuel and a hire car.
I have also sold a Ka over the telephone (after he had viewed it on my interactive web cam) to a guy from India, it was for his daughter who lived in Warrington so she didnt have to travel too far
I cant help thinking that it could be because i am selling my cars too cheap!!!!!
If i ever i meet Sir Tim Berners Lee (Inventor Of The Internet) im going to kiss him! well perhaps shake his hand at least
