    Default Where would you advertise your car???

    (sorry mods if this is in the worng place feel free to move it!!!)

    was flicking through the local Auto Supermarket this morning and lamenting the lack of interesting cars in it. Its wonderful if you want a 4wd/commondore/falcon but anything thats a little "unusual" (Pugs etc) is just none existant there!!!

    seems to be the same to a large extent with most of the internet based carsales sites so where would you be likely to advertise your car if you sold it????

    me personally i've used carsales a couple of times and thats been successful, and word of mouth to recently sell my 740turbo, and the cars ive bought have been thru trading post, drive and word of mouth....

    I found our Coupe in the Trading Post (online) but there are plenty of Pugs on Carsales and Drive. If I was selling I'd advertise on every relevent club/forum website plus the three commercial ones above.

    I sold my last car (Telstar) on carsales in 3 or 4 days!

    In the past I had nothing but trouble with the Trading Post.

    in no particular order

    1 carsales.com.au
    2 drive.com.au
    3 uniquecarsales.com.au (more specific/unique)
    4 shannons.com.au (park & sell)

    4 forum/s specific to manufacturer


    found carsales the best followed by drive. have found both sites the easiest to use/navigate... although drive gave the contact details (ph & address if available + web sites with details) of private and/or dealers... if you want to contact them directly as opposed to sending an email that mostly go to the ethernet nowhere to be found...?

    As a former tyre kicker and successful buyer and seller of French cars, I suggest the Carsales.com with pics (approx $10 to advertise forever) then advertise on aussiefrogs for sale with a link to the carsales ad and do the same on the Citroen bulletin board.
    If no results, then go the Trading Post route.
    Trading post these days is typically a hopeless Tel$tra production as you can no longer link anything to their ads so they are a total waste of money. This is probably why they get all anal about anyone using the worde "Trading Post" in their adverts; afraid it might be successful.

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    If it's a not a classic then all the web options are where the smart money is ... just make sure you put some decent pictures in .. nothing puts a buyer off more then not being able to see the car properly ... good pictures (in and out) helps interest.

    Good luck.

    yeah... i hate it when there are no pics... worst still is if the pics are either the following:

    too small, out of focus, too big (download issues, most web sites are built with 56k users in mind, so check your dpi, should be 72 & check final size) under &/or overexposed...

    can of worms... remember k.i.s.s.
