I just had this email from Steve Moss at Motorhomes Direct, it may be of interested to readers thinking about buying one of the excellent Mooveo Motorhomes that we personally find to be an excellent all round motorhome and also the perfect vehicle to hire out. Here’s Steve’s email:
Still “on the fence” about owning a buy to let motorhome?
Consider the recent news about the £ falling to a record low against the Euro….What does that mean? It means a lot more Brits and Europeans will take their holiday in the UK next year, which is great news for the motorhome hire business! Unfortunately, the cost of a new motorhome is also set to rocket by 10% – 15% more than this year’s prices. WHY? The vast majority of motorhomes are made in Europe, which means we buy them in Euros and sell them in £s.
- How can you “cash in” on next year’s hire boom and avoid being clobbered by the price increase?
We’ve already sold all our allocated Mooveo stock for 2008, but we were approached recently by another motorhome dealer about their last Mooveo model….
Pilote Mooveo C647
- Renault 2.5 turbo diesel
- Sleeps 6
- Rear bunks
- Air conditioning
- Comfort pack
- 3 year warranty & breakdown cover
- Brand new!
On the road price was £35,400 – subsidised buy 2 let price only £29,995. Low deposit finance – £1,000 down and monthly repayments approx £380 (subect to status). We also provide a rental income guarantee worth £7,500 over the next three years.
And finally, did you know that if you invested in a motorhome for hire purposes, you could claim up to 40% of its purchase price as a capital allowance against your income tax?
If you’re facing a hefty tax bill this year, perhaps from your salaried income or even capital gains from selling a property, this could be an ideal way to “offset” some of your money that you’ll otherwise have to pay over to the taxman.
As I mentioned, this is probably your last chance to own one of our brand new Mooveo Motorhomes at an amazing price and even offset some of your upcoming tax bill!
