Just thought I'd pass this on, and I have nothing to do with this mob
or allstates!
Whilst doing my research into what's available as far as used car warranties I stumbled across a site called www.carbroker.com.au.
You can purchase the All States Warranty from them at basically cost price.
The wholesale yard that I was talking to offer me the 3 year advantage allstates warranty for $799. I can get it myself for $559.95! Saving of $240!!!

They also sell a doouble deluxe advantage with cheese and bacon!
for ~$750. Covers motor for $4000, Transmission for $4000 etc etc.
You can also read the terms and conditions, the fine print to see exactly whats covered.

Again I have nothing to do with any of it, just thought someone else may benefit.
Have a look if you're considering a warranty when buying a used car.

cheers

Ok tell then to give Dogart a discount - plenty of goodwill from our end.

I would love to be able to give $$ but we are still not running at a profit - We keep trying however there are a lot of narrow minded businesses out there that have no idea of the power of the Internet and the number of people that visit this site every day. They just think the touchy feely mags are the only advertising medium - they have no idea what they are missing out on.Regards

Cannot be done at the moment - It is not one of those easy things to fix. It is all to do with email alerts being sent and the other ways the system operates in the backgroud. I have been trying to sort it however all attempts thus far have not left my development system. Regards

have you considered . . .
Forum Software powered by ASP Playground Advanced Edition 2.1.5
makes for a damn good forum and nice and clean too.
probably too many sub headings, but you could prob decrease the number
of topics.
just an idea, alot of sites seem to be using it now.

I hate to say this but.......
I think that you would have more success selling advertising if you were able to insert a small link in the corner of each post to one of your advertisers. That link could then connect them to somewhere else like you do for Yahoo groups etc. It would have to be much less intrusive - maybe about the size of that tags that members have. Most of the ads on your site are not on the pages that we look at everyday...... I am still trying to work out how to spend $150 in the shop to get a free membership....

Thought I share an experience I had in the UK with a car warranty bought through the second hand dealer, when I bought the car.

Things were going great, the car was going well, I had the RAC warranty certificate in my car file – it was on pre-printed RAC paper the dealer had filled in the blanks and put his stamp on it, it all looked sweet, then he SHOULD of sent it to RAC with payment.

When I wanted to claim I didn’t want to go miles back to the dealer so called RAC to find a local place to fix the problem. RAC hadn’t heard of my certificate number or even the dealer in question. The dealer had taken my money for the warranty and not sent the insurers copy to the insurer, thus pocketing the 150 quid the warranty cost.

Hope nothing like that has happened to anyone here.
