    For some time now I have been trying to find the old man's old jd 2040s, 2wd, reg A289 VRL
    it was sold (I believe) around 2010 at the sale and brought by Wayne Danger (sp?) Of southern tractors cornwall/southern tractors agricultural engineers and was sold on again. Now I know the tractor hasn't been taxed since 2013 but Wayne won't tell me who he sold it on to and all the dvla will tell me is that it is owned buy someone who maybe a dealer so I'm appealing to the knowledge and members of TFF in the hope of finding it.
    TIA, John :)

    Can the DVLA help you, probably not?

    Would a reg check help?
    Use one of the many independent firms advertising, but I'm not sure how much they will actually know about a tractor? Costa about £20 - £30 , might be worth a punt?
     
  7. Know any coppers?

    They have to be willing to abuse the PNC slightly....

    I'm in the process of filling out a V888.
    You print it off the DVLA site.
    It's for enquiring about current owner.

    Have you asked the dealer to contact their customer on your behalf? If they wish to remain anonomous they can send a return message stating that it is not for sale.

    He won't even be that helpful, as he claims that he can't remember who he sold it onto but I should think that he would have records of a transaction like that, it's as if he just can't be bothered

    If you have a genuine reason for knowing who they are they should tell you
    Trouble is their genuine reason is for things like parking on your land, damaging your property etc it would be wrong to make that up however maybe you have found something of value relating to the vehicle which gives a genuine reason for asking who the owner is so you can reunite the item with vehicle?
    I'd ring delay and speak to someone if possible

    Bringing this back up as I've still had no success in locating the tractor but it has moved again and being used as it is now currently taxed so any help or leads would be appreciated

    Id dread to think
     
  19. have you considered putting an advert in one or all of the tractor magazines??
    I can tell it is important for you to find it
     
  20. and you could put an advert in the national farming press
