And of course depends upon how valuable your time is.
I suspect I would never mess about for a few grand, but might be encouraged to spend eight hours for, say, £15k.
The easiest car sale I ever had was the one I was dreading the most.
An early Subaru impreza.
Sold to the first arrival, in cash.
The one I was looking to enjoy was a much higher priced and niche market S2000.
I nearly punched one idiot after taking three hours of my life.
