If you want to sell your car, you need to raise interest and the best way of doing this is to put some effort into your "for sale" thread.

Here are some guidelines on how to work towards this -

The Car


• Include a full description (year, make, model, cc etc)
• Condition – include both good and bad points, people will see the bad points when they come to look at it, so be open in the first place!
• Service history (if it has one), cambelt /clutch changes etc if known

Don’t forget to include


• Tax expiry
• Mot expiry
• Mileage
• Number of previous owners (if it has been owned previously by forum members, mention that too!)

Modifications

• If your car is modified, include a full list of what has been done. This will also help if people are trying to get insurance quotes on the car.
• List any original parts you may have spare from fitting the modifications. Someone may love your car but not your induction kit!

You

• State the town/area where you live i.e. Swindon, Wilts
• How long you have owned the car
• If you have a genuine reason for sale, include it. People like to know why someone is selling a car

Pictures

• Don’t forget to include pictures. Make sure you have pictures of all 4 sides, the engine bay and the interior
• Wash, dry and polish/wax your car before you take pictures, a clean car gives a far better impression.
• If you have washed your car, move it to dry spot to take the pictures so it doesn’t look like you’ve only washed it for the sale!
• Don’t forget to vacuum the interior and dust the dash!
• Make sure you pictures are good and clear, blurred ones taken at night are good to no-one!

Some forums allow you to attach pictures from your hard drive. If not, use a free image hosting site such as http://photobucket.com/

Asking Price


• Don’t forget to state how much you money you would like for the car!


Finally, we often see things like "failed MOT, all it needs are new brake pads and a reversing bulb...". To be frank, a car without an MOT is pretty much the same value as a scrap car. If all it needs is a few pounds spending to get it through an MOT, DO IT! A car with 12 months MOT is easily double the value of a car with no MOT and it doesn't look like there is something to hide, so you will have far more interest in your sale.

Posted Image It will add to the comedy factor! IMO plenty of bad pictures you could use already on the site! not bad pictures in general just bad pictures to use on a for sale advert Posted Image

Shiny, if you haven't already, you should have a look on gumtree. Those guys/gals clearly haven't read your guide. Truly godawful advertisements!!!!! It could be painful viewing for you.

I suspect he may take bad and his OCD would go into overdrive......I would be the same. Some people haven't got a bloody clue when it comes to selling...frightening as they always lose money. I've seen adverts where people thought it was ok to sell the car unwashed....unreal :shock:

There is one place worse than Gumtree and that is your local "for sale, free and wanted" page on facebook. People put up a blurred image of half a car and absolutely no details. Posts fly in...how much...how many miles..mot etc and all the seller replies is "I'll pm you" so nobody has a fooking clue even when someone else has asked! Does my bleeding head in!

I've been keeping an eye on all outlets recently just so I can see cars that aren't selling, (I'm noting the registrations) as there must be reasons why they have been listed for 20+ days and then re-advertised. I'm gonna use your guide as a blueprint of what I'm looking for in an advert. My OCD has been going crazy with some of them, and I know I'm driving the missus crazy as well.
