What information should I supply for my advert?
We ask the basics such as make, model, price and location as part of the upload process, but the best response will be gained by providing detailed information. List optional equipment or upgrades and load as many photos as you can. Simply put, the more info you provide, the easier it is to match with buyers looking for those features.

I am struggling to upload pictures for my advert
Each image must be no more than 4MB in size. The easiest way of ensuring you can upload pictures is to change the image size on your camera BEFORE you take the pictures. Most digital cameras have a picture setting for online images which is smaller than 0.5mb per image. Select this setting and then take the pictures you wish to use in your advert. Download them to the computer you will use for placing your advert. You will then be able to select them when you are placing an Advert. If you have larger-sized images you will need to resize them on your computer (this can be done in most image storing programs before attempting to upload them to your advert.

How long do adverts last?
All private adverts are hold until sold and will remain live on the site until you remove your advert. We will contact you after 3 months to remind you.


What if I don’t have a digital camera?

We do all we can to stop scammers emailing sellers and our software is very successful in stopping most of them. However, we cannot guarantee that some enquiries may not be genuine.
