Tips on How To Sell a Car on Gumtree

Mar 27, 2015 | Car Brisbane News

Selling a car on Gumtree can be a complicated & nerve-racking process. However, with Cars Brisbane’s tips, the process becomes easy as pie.

5 Tips to help you sell a Car on Gumtree

  1. When listing your car on Gumtree, provide high quality photos of the exterior, interior, paintwork and engine as these will increase buyers’ interest in the car.
  2. Include honest descriptions of the car’s cosmetic and mechanical condition, its kilometres, registration and any extras that might help sell the car like cruise control, air conditioning or a spacious boot. Mention your reasons for selling, and if your price is low, justify why it is low compared to other cars of similar make and model, age, condition and mileage.
  3. To help online buyers find your listing quickly and easily, use smart keywords in your listing, especially the title, such as your car’s make and model, year and colour.
  4. Provide detailed contact information, including multiple phone numbers so that buyers can reach you easily. To avoid receiving spam or being contacted by scammers, request that interested customers contact you via a phone call, rather than texting or emailing.
  5. Outline the ideal price you would like and make it clear whether that price is negotiable. Mentioning your desired price in a prominent place on the ad will avoid confusing, frustrating or delaying customers in making an offer.
