At Coventry everybody is paid out on the day in cash. Less Vendors' Commission 6%
At EH it appears they keep your money in their bank account until they send you a cheque less Vendors' Commission 10%.

As I've explained before cheques being paid into your bank account are a pain for anyone self employed or if the authorities may suspect you of trading on the side.

Naturally I have a vested interest.

Facts are not quite right re EH.
If you attend the sale and can be bothered to wait to the end of sale you can get paid out in cash like at Coventry or, if you go home early or don't attend the sale, then you can get BACS or cheque or cash if you ask, less seller's commission which is 5% if selling machines - not 10% as stated. Or if you have bought anything you can have it delivered if it can be arranged and get your cash.

Thanks Dave for clarifying, it's not too clear on the website, and it's a changing world.

Does this mean the commission is now less than Coventry? !OMFG!

Cheques and BACS payments are not a problem if you're self-employed unless you use your personal account as your business account which is never a good idea.

Parkers Carousel

Postby hiflyer » Thu Jul 24, 2014 11:57 am

Does anyone know if the Parkers Carousel was the one sold at Coventry in November? If not, is someone knocking them out? £1220 is a fair old whack.

There is a story, the relevant facts, I was told ... might be ..... :!?!:
Most of the parts are original NOS acquired from Parker's disposal.
When married together to make a machine, it might not have been in Parker's Works.
I was told Parker's themselves have bought one back to put in their collection.

I've not seen one deliberately aged to look old, and I have owned one once.

I'm sure others could add their versions of what they'd heard. :cool:
