Anyone know where to find out when and where they hold these in Scotland? Looking to get a berlingo van.

I got the equivalent Peugeot Partner, they're shite, don't break down, just keep needing stuff doing to them, usually expensive!

Cheers, D.

Had a Peugeot Partner 1.9 D, couldn't fault it, had it for 11 years.

Got a Berlingo now 1.6 HDi, 56 plate cant fault this van either.

Is it the escapade? I’m a mechanic to trade and work for a Citroen dealership so a bit method before my madness. 👍🏻😂

No mate it's the 10 year old version.

If that's your job it wouldn't be a problem for you.

Cheers, D.

The old berlingo was one of very few citreons that didn't give trouble. The rest of them electrics failed.

A pal of mine bought an ex forestry 4x4 truck , looked fairly tidy but that ended up costing him a fortune . They do seem to work them to the limit , certainly the trucks ..

You will probably get a better deal looking at the small adds in your local paper, as the second hand car market is dead on it's arse what with the poles flooding the market with cat D right off,s  and  everyone else buying new vans on tick there is a surplus of second hand motors around to choose from, maybe if you were after a unimog or something but for a standard van, I would,nt rush to the auction expecting a bargain 👍

I looked at some ex forestry ford rangers they had certainly seen some work at a local garage he had an agent who sourced them at auction.

He reported a good number chassis wise were too far gone.

It is my understanding after speaking to a forestry commission manager involved in vehicle dispersal they all go to auction you cannot buy direct.
