This is the 3rd car I have had success in selling via Carsales over the years.
Sold in less than 24 hours
I sold the car in less than 24 hours at the full advertised price, it was amazing!! I had a few calls from dealers trying to get the car cheaply but the first private buyer to call bought it at full price.
no complaints department
as a dealer you have no complaints Department ( that I know of ) if I want to complain about my performance manager or that person's manager I have to complain to the person that I wish to make the complaint against I just don't see how this works, for a company the size of carsales you should have a department we can go to when we get no help or little help.
Inflation on new car pricing
At present new car stocks are low of the most popular Toyota models. (and maybe other brands)
However there looks to be a number of cars being delivered to private buyers then being relisted soon after at a large mark up in price.
The models this has happened to was the Toyota Yaris GR which was around the $40K mark then relisted at up to $10K more. The Rav 4 Hybrid was the same but not sure of the amount and same for the recently released Kluger models.
If you are patient and order from a dealer allowing for the long delivery you can save a lo...
Didn't take long to sell. I have sold with Carsales before and find them great, you don't get dodgy people trying to scam you like some other selling platforms
First Time user....EASY
I Liked the way messaging could be done through the site or buyers could choose in this case to use SMS directly. The assistance in the site when setting up the add was quite good especially as I was a first time user.
Easy as ever
An inexpensive and painless process. The advertisement generated a lot of interest. First prospect to inspect the car bought it.
Genuine enquiries only
Only genuine buyers contact sellers from carsales in all my experience. The fees are reasonable compared to other market places considering it's a one off, not ongoing.
Great Way to sell a car
I got lots of views, a very fast response, a good number of queries and it was very easy to set up and publish the ad. Very Happy. Sold in 1 day
Carsales: it's the way to go!
It's a no-brainer. Carsales is where it all happens, and your pricing is very reasonable. I was amazed at how easy it was to create the ad and how quickly you posted it after submission. Well done!
Car sold in 5 weeks
standard add and the car sold,100 views a week. not fantastic views. worth it if you have time to sell!
I had many enquiries, Ive been trying to sell the car locally for years but after putting on carsales. and even with covid was amazing response.
Would highly recommend carsales
Simple, cost effective and hassle free. All thats needed in this day and age of a thousand questions. Option 1, option 2 and blah blah blah. Not here. Well done.
Sold my car quickly and easily
I was very pleased with how easy it was to create an effective advertisement. My car sold within hours of the advertisement appearing online.
Excellent advertisement to sell car
Excellent advertisement to sell car in a safe adn secured environment. Easy to use the app and description to load and unload photos.
Questions & Answers
some who put cars for sale because they do not put their details, so we can contact them
Interested parties can always contact you via the CarSales app. Then you get to choose whether to make contact with them directly in the future.
Hi Zacharias, The ways you can contact a seller will vary. This is because the seller can choose how they want to be contacted. What you will find on all ads, is the ability to contact the seller via a message. On desktop this will be found on the right hand side of the page via the 'enquire on this car' form. On a mobile, look for the orange buttons at the bottom of your screen. -Alex
Might be a dumb question but how do you mark your car as sold on your ad? I only have an option to pause the ad
Hey Kylie, not a silly question at all! We're actually looking to improve this function. Just under the 'pause ad' button you'll see 'remove ad', hit that then follow the prompts to remove your ad. If you have any trouble, give us a bell on 13 72 53 (13 SALE). -Alex
sorry I meant 'on hold'
Hey Kylie, To put your ad on hold click 'pause ad'. See the link below for more details.
Let us know if there is anything else we can help with. -Alex
If a car is put on hold how can you contact the seller if the option of sending them a message isn’t available?
In my case I called/rang the seller and thankfully She answered it and there's a phone/mobile nos. that She provided anyway .
Hi Jacqueline, if a seller has put their ad on hold you wont be able to contact them unless you their number or messaged them before the ad was put on hold. If you have the ad saved and they remove the hold you'll get a notification. -Alex
