Example above of an advert in a long form. For a typical classified advert it
will be shorter - about half the length. The V8 website online "cars for
sale" webpages offers, at no extra charge, an additional dedicated webpage
which can take the long form and display a full set of photos. With online adverts
on eBay, you can also post a set of photos.

Keep in mind you want to describe the car fully and accurately, price it to reflect
the quality and the fair market value, and use a style which enables the reader
to gain a clear understanding of what is offered.
must you include?|
Include the model, year of manufacture and registration
letter, body colour, mileage, describe the condition generally and of the key
parts, then mention any extras, the service history including any major replacement
parts, clarify when the last set of new tyres was fitted and mention tax and MOT
expiry dates. Adding your reason for selling helps a buyer understand why the
car is up for sale, but this can be very easily clarified in your contacts with
callers responding to the advert. State the asking price and then set out your
contacts. It is also worth mentioning where the car is located - the county is
sufficient. You also need to
clarify whether it is a private or trade sale. More
should I avoid?|
using hackneyed or vague terms like "good car", "good runner",
"lovely driver", "first to see will buy" and avoid spelling
mistakes and poor English.
a good colour photo
Take a set of photos of a clean car in good light and from each
angle - choose a three quarters front photo to show the car
at its best. Avoid distractions behind the car like dustbins,
walls or other cars.
do I set the price for my car?|
Setting the asking
price needs care - too high and you may have few responses, too low and you might
miss a better price. So do your pricing research by browsing current classifieds
and see our price guide. More
