Thumbs up My new career move- to Ford!

Well the time has come for a change. Was looking for a new challenge, not to mention full time work, and have recently secured a new job at Bayford Ford in Coburg!

Just like my dad, I am continuing the proud Ford tradition and will be selling quality used cars. Will have the standard 3 month trial period (which will be training) and then wham bam into the action, including new car and fuel card! Any tips for me?!?!?!

Going to be a bit of a culture shock considering my laid back lifestlye at my current job, but wanted to pursue my passion, and that is Ford! So, for anyone living in the northern suburbs of melbs and is looking for a new or used car, then you know who to come and see (me- Steve).

Feel free to PM or email me anytime if you have any queries

YAY Provided you know your product you'll be right.
NOTHING is worse than rocking up to the dealer knowing more about a car then they do.

Tee Up with Rodney at Preston

This guy has looked after me and all the people I have referred to him, by far the best sales technique, personality and all round good guy!

And... by all means... have fun

Cheers laminge.
I was actually meant to go to the Preston dealership, but in the end they decided on Coburg. Pity, becuase I miss out on the FPV outlet :(

Re: My new career move

Good stuff Steve!
Be on the look out for a Blue ST24 with 18' rims. I should be in for a service soon, If you see me dont be shy to say hello.

Me and my whole family take our cars to Coburg, they seem to do a good job.

Stefan.
