do I advertise V8 Spares for Sale on this website?
When drafting your advert, please start with a short
phrase describing the goods - for example "Unused replacement front shock
absorbers for an MGBGTV8" - and then follow that with a little more detail
about the goods including the part number, the condition (brand
new and unused, or used with little use or wear adding the period of use, or moderate
use), whether it is an original part (for example a Unipart) or a branded
aftermarket part, the size and colour (where important), the price,
an indication of how the goods will be delivered to the buyer (for example
"buyer collects" or the seller will send the goods by package or parcel
post, by inland courier or freight service, and whether the seller can arrange
for overseas delivery), and finally your telephone contacts.
We encourage advertisers
to include a photo (but this is not mandatory) which is posted alongside the advert,
so either send a scan of a photo or a digital photo as a jpeg file
(on a floppy disc or as an email attachment) or the original photo which
the V8 Webmaster can scan, crop, resize and optimise for use on the website free
of charge for you.
Private Sale or a Sale by a Specialist Trader?
We feel it
is important that adverts make clear whether the goods are being offered for sale
by a member as a "Private Sale" or by a trader as a "Trade
Sale", so one of those phrases in parenthesis will be attached to each
advert. Where appropriate we will mention that a trader is part of the V8LIFELINE,
the listing maintained by the V8 Register of V8 specialist traders which have
been recommended by members of the V8 Register as providing good quality and reliable
services. However do note the disclaimer below. Where goods are offered for sale
by a trader, do check whether the goods have any guarantee or warranty provided
by the trader and/or the manufacturer.
Adverts from traders are
welcome but please note the Business Advertisement Disclosure Order (1977) requires
all business advertisers must make it clear in their advertisement that they are
a trader. When submitting an advert for display, please ensure that the words
"business advert" are at the foot of the advert.
