How it works
Before 'n' After'd vehicles sell fast and get top price! Past customers who sold their Before 'n' After'd vehicle have told us that the vehicle sold very fast and they got top price for it. Howard Connoch of Mold in Flintshire said, in 2012: “I had my Defender 90 done in Oct 2008. I advertised it on ebay and the reserve was quickly met and surpassed – in less than 24 hours in fact! I put this down to the fact that there are people actively looking for Before 'n' After'd vehicles to buy.” (See our testimonials page) Another Customer click here for one minute video, sold his Heritage 90 very quickly. The Customer Record Page (CRP), started in May 2018 and the Past Customer Page (PCP) for customers pre that date to load their own page, will help you sell your car even faster and get an even better price if you ever need to sell it.
Find a Before 'n' After'd vehicle that you want to buy
Customer Record Page (CRP) Welcome to the Before 'n' After database of cars rustproofed by us. A “Customer Record Page” for treated vehicles, showing 24 before and after shots of the vehicle underbody and a classification
for the condition is made for each vehicle treated. No exceptions – it's mandatory - but customer details are not revealed and images of your registration plate are blurred except for the first and last letter. You can ask us not to use an image of yourself if you want. The CRP system was started in May 2018
"View Vehicles Page" The page can be seen on our “View Vehicles Page”. That is the basic "unfiltered" page for both Customer Record Page (CRP) and Past Customer Page (PCP) Vehicles. But we can also add two useful features for you. Not only that but we give you your own admin page where you can enable or disable these features yourself at any time. You can't delete the basic CRP though. Once we have uploaded your page we will email you an alphanumeric code that you can use to login to the admin page for your own CRP. If you sell the vehicle, the new owner takes over the CRP page and its admin. This should further enhance the value of a Before 'n' After'd vehicle.
The two features that you can enable/disable:
Allow Bidding. If you enable this feature, internet users browsing the “View Vehicles Page”, who see the CRP for your vehicle and who would like to buy the vehicle can click on the “bid” button to bid for it. (If you don't enable it or you disable it subsequently, it simply does not appear). They are taken to a “bid page” for your vehicle where they can enter a figure and click submit. Their bid is then emailed to you from our server and you can choose to reply to the bidder or simply ignore it if the bid does not interest you. None of your details is revealed to the bidder.
An offer you can't refuse You do not have to be actively looking to sell your vehicle to enable bidding. But who knows, someone might offer you a ridiculous price for it that you simply cannot refuse. For example if you are sure that the value of your vehicle is say, £8,000, and someone sends you a bid for £10,000 you might want to tear their arm off! If someone sends you a bid of £7,000 you simply ignore it. (By the way, bids and "For sale" replies are moderated by me and I can block nuisances. Also, you will be constantly updated on the real market value of your vehicle and if you do ever decide to sell, you will have an instant list of people who have already expressed an interest in buying it. (Note: you cannot have the “Bid” button and “For Sale” button both at the same time. It's one or the other.) If you sell the vehicle, the new owner takes over the CRP page and its admin. This should further enhance the value of a Before 'n' After'd vehicle.
For Sale and price You can enable a For Sale link together with the price you are looking for. Buyers can click on the link and our server will send you an email with their email address so you can contact them directly. If you get several potential buyers, get them bidding against each other in your communications with them. Once you have sold the vehicle, simply go into your admin page and disable the For Sale and price link and it will disappear from your CRP. Give your CRP admin page details to the new owner who can use the features herself. It will enhance the value of your Before 'n' After treated car even more. (Note: you cannot have the “Bid” button and “For Sale” button both on at the same time. It's one or the other.)
Past Customer Page (PCP)
Past customers: email me for your own PCP Customers before May 2018, email me if you want to add your details yourself on a similar version of this page called a “Past Customer Page”. I will send you an admin page where you can login and upload your own images and details. (Before 'n' After customers only). You can upload up to 24 images! I suggest getting your car really clean and nicely waxed. Maybe even use a professional valeter or detailer. Get some shots of the underbody when it's up on the ramp at the MOT station or getting a new exhaust fitted. Get it pressure washed underneath if it's muddy. If I see a PCP page which does not show your vehicle in the best light I will contact you and suggest another try.
Your own PCP admin page You have the same features as the Customer Record Page but users will know that you uploaded your images and vehicle details yourself. They will know for sure though that the vehicle was treated by Before 'n' After because only past Before 'n' After customers get their own admin page. (Uploaded pages are checked by myself and any fraudulent uploads are deleted). Email me if you have not received your own admin page yet. Vehicles shown on the Past Customer Pages do not have the a) to e) classification because their vehicles were treated before it was introduced.

For buyers looking for Before 'n' After'd vehicles
How to use the “Bid” button on a Customer Record Page or a Past Customer Page
Either just browse all the vehicles or you can use the filters to select cars you can bid on or cars that are for sale. If you see a car on a CRP page or a PCP page that you would like to buy and the “bid” button is enabled, you can click the button to make a bid for it. A form will appear when you click “bid” where you can insert your email address and your bid. Click “send” and this will be sent to the owner's email address. Please be aware that the owner may not be actively seeking to sell the car but might consider a high bid for it. The owner can reply to you by email if he or she is interested in taking things further but they can also simply ignore your bid. So if they don't reply, it does not mean that there is a glitch in our software. It means that your bid was not high enough to warrant a reply.
How to use the “For Sale” button on a Customer Record Page or a Past Customer Page
If the owner of a Before 'n' After'd vehicle you see on a CRP or a PCP is actively seeking to sell the vehicle you will see “For sale” and the price right next to the For sale button. Click on the button and you will be taken to a form where you can enter your email address and click “send”. The owner can then contact you to take things further and arrange a viewing date. Rememher that not only is the guarantee transferable but the owner of CRP or PCP admin panel for the vehicle can change it to your own email adress login and you can then change the login password yourself. Please be sensible when making bids. We have an easy "social login" and bids and For Sale queries are moderated by me.
Before 'n' After underbody classifications
*class a) “Mint", new or nearly new vehicles.) Not expected to need re-treatment under the guarantee.
* class b) Up to 10 year old vehicles with usual amount of rust. Not expected to need re-treatment under the guarantee.
*class c) Over 10 years old but very clean for age. Not expected to need re-treatment under the guarantee
*class d) Very rusty vehicles where I either find one instance of rot or where no rot is found but it is expected that the customer will have to bring back the vehicle for re-treatment at least once under the guarantee. These customers will have to pay an extra £100 for the guarantee and £200 for re-treatment under the guarantee.
*class e) Widespread rot. (Rust holes in lots of places). These vehicles are given back to the owner after pressure washing to have the vehicle welded and bring it back for the treatment to be completed. These customers must pay £100 extra plus the full amount for the treatment on the day and a further £200 to complete the treatment on another day. £200 will be paid for any re-treatment under the guarantee.
*class f) Mainly for “classic cars” that are really tarted up old bangers. Bodged with filler or molested with schutz or other inappropriate kinds of underseal. These cars will be turned away and I will keep your deposit! So if you have a very old vehicle, email me first so I can ask some questions before booking in.
