good for interstate buying
Found Boatsales.com.au a good platform when it comes to interstate deals. I've found in the past with other platforms you get a lot of timewasters and people who aren't serious, don't fret as this is a rariety on boatsales.com.au - everyone on the site means business and doesn't play games wasting your time and demanding the world.
Bought and sold, no hassles both times.
Hated having to log in from my email notifications.
Buyer should be encouraged more to contact via mobile. Only knew I had messages when I viewed my emails.
Was not able to show clearly that there were 2 skis for sale on the listing as the site only allows one ID to be entered.
Overall, it was a pleasant experience.
Sold but not a great service or cost
Was not happy with the cost of the Ad and won't be using this service again. $90 odd dollars for a page is too much. considering the amount of Advertising that is being sold on the site. Will use other tools moving forward.
Broker had my boat for almost a year, I sold it on boat sales in 10 days.
Boat Sales has a huge audience, a broker wanted 5% to sell my boat and all he did is what I ended up doing advertising it on Boat Sales in the end I sold it because i knew everything about the boat and was able to answer any questions. So I was able to take his commission off the price which made it $50k and then dropped to $48k but I had to repair a couple of faults hence $46,250, I'm happy and the buyers happy.
Finally Sold our boat !!
We had our ad in for just over a year. Did spend a lot of extra money on many showcase advertising to get our boat noticed more on the first page. I only have one suggestion... probably a bit more support to sellers who have their items in there for a lengthy period. Maybe discounts on ongoing extra advertising. Overall, I am happy we found a buyer who is going to love our boat and have the same great memories with it as we did with our kids.
I paid $95.00 for the use of the Boat Sales site, Great Value. The add set-up was easy to follow, and the boatsales.com site was easy to navigate. We received the first of 3 inquiries within 24 hrs of the add going live and subsequently sold to the first caller.
Very happy with the result.
Questions & Answers
I have sailing boat sculptures for sale may I place these on your site?
Hi Rainier, Thanks for your question.
For selling boat sculptures, it'll be best to advertise on quicksales.com.au.
Part of the carsales network, Quicksales is a general classifieds website and is 100% free to sell.
I hope this helps.
