    Default Ebay car sales

    Hi, I have a very nice low mileage car in A1 condition to sell on behalf of an elderly relative who is giving up driving. I won't give too many details as it may look like I'm trying to punt it on the Forum - but its not a Vectra or even a Vx.
    I have had it in the two local Derby and Nottingham papers and not had a call - I know it is between £1800 and two grand cheaper than garages are selling them for and am surprised it hasn't had more interest although it has been advertised over the Bank Holiday weekend which could be a negative.
    Just wondering if anyone has used Ebay to sell a car - I was thinking of using a classified ad at a fixed price - and what sort of experience they had.

    Sold a SAAB convertible via ebay last year. had it listed elsewhere as well but did eventually sell through "the bay". did take a couple of relistings to get there though, had it up as a BIN as at the time, as it was easiest.

    Can only speak for myself but I had no problems.

    Why haven't you advertised it on auto trader ? That's the only place I put any car I sell (normally sold within a week)

    I have bought 3 cars that were advertised on eBay (bought them outside of the auction) including my new vectra

    Thanks for the replys - I did consider Autotrader but always thought it was expensive - I did sell my Astra estate on Ebay starting at 99p and then had a member contact me with a good price and ended the listing and sold it outside Ebay. Bit cheeky I know but got what I wanted and saved on Ebay fees - was just considering the Classified Ads on there which is a one off charge of around £15 - you can put a really good write up and 12 pictures on the listing.

    Advertised my last car (BMW 320d) on Auto Trader for nearly 3 months with no joy - apart from the occasional time waster. Stuck it on ebay and sold within a week.

    Sold quite a few on ebay with auction and a reserved price. No problems what so ever. I always put on a 10 day auction for maximum publicity. Always sold.

    My other car. 1972 1641cc slammed beetle. On the road finally!!

    Thanks for all your replies - I think I will go down the Ebay route - Its a 2008 Renault Kangoo so it shouldn't attract too many Loons. Thanks for the advice.

    I spent ages looking for a decent kangoo/ berlingo etc when I bought my vectra as that was ideally what i wanted, but couldnt find any decent ones, All i could find was Fiat Doblo's in their hundreds, and i wasnt prepared to touch a Fiat, due to my grandad having so many probs with his

    I must admit I'm really impressed with the Kangoo - its an estate/car but is based on a van chasis and everything is heavy duty - I was thinking of buying it myself but its just come at the wrong time really - 2008 with 16k 11months tax/test and not a mark on it - I think if I can get someone to the house to see it it will sell.
