    I'm amazed how long this has lasted.

    I thought, given a choice between winter tires and summer, surely summer wins every time.

    With a summer car and a winter car, you can pull yourself out of ditches. :emoticon-0103-cool:

    I'm just not a car person myself.
    Just an A to B mode to me.

    I do about 30k miles a year, so need something big as I'm 6'3" and comfortable. If I did low mileage I wouldn't be bothered either.

    What’s better a winter or a summer tug?

    Your car doesn’t go in the snow. It’s got tyres that cost double to get an extra mph. It’s sounds like it’s only fit for someone who lives in a motorway service station and works in another motorway service station.

    Your choice obviously. But don’t expect sympathy.

    It actually goes to the alps once or twice a year. But don't let facts get in the way.

    Tyres that cost double? Tyres that are safe to use in the conditions presented.

    I would have thought something like this, just with a different paint job.

    Sorry to go off topic but ...

    For those of you who run or manage businesses what are your preferred methods of receiving payment besides cash?

    Which are the best companies to use? Is PayPal worth it? Are there any others?

    Asking for a friend ...

    I’m beginning to see that but not everyone banks online (I packed it in when my brother’s account was emptied of £80k overnight, a few years back.) I’m just in the process of setting it back up again. Most transactions will be via a website, others will be at the business premises.

    You can thank me when you get sunburnt at your caravan at Sand Le Mere in March and then again in October.

    Depends on what the business is, personally I try and make it is easy as possible for people to pay, using what ever option they prefer.

    My website is PayPal, but has the option of making card payments through PayPal without having to actually sign up with them.

    More and more businesses are now starting to use PayPal for large invoices, I paid two suppliers using PayPal this week, something I couldn’t envisage happening a year or two back.

    Thanks OLM, I’ll have a look but sounds like what I’m after.

    I avoid cash and am not allowed to take credit cards or Paypal. We do everything via online banking.

    As OLM says it depends on the type of business.

    Credit Card claw back is a bigger issue that online fraud for me.

    The best advice I would give to anyone who invoices to business, is to have very good Terms and Conditions that include an All Monies Retention Of Title and to employ strict credit control. If the terms say 30 days don’t wait 60 to chase.

    I don’t have a business but I use PayPal for online sales on behalf of HCSS. Works a treat and is not expensive compared to standard merchant providers. I have a handheld payment device that cost about £30 that does C&P and contactless and works a treat. And the charges for the handheld are lower than online.
