Great Site Easy to use
I found it very easy and simple to use the site.
It gives a very good exposure to so many people looking for cars.
And finding all the details like vin chasis number, rego number, photographs etc gives very transparent transactions. It would be good idea if it could also give the rating of the dealers on the face so that purchaser could make out who are the genuine and honest dealers
Rapid and overwhelming response.
Easy to complete and launch an ad and the response was amazing
Found the response to be genuine and follow through with conversations. I could attend to the questions at any time day or night which I found very helpful.
Sold very quickly and no messing around. A great way to sell a vehicle.
Easy to manage offers
Good result achieved, well worth upgrading to premium ad to get higher exposure - the old adage 'it pays to advertise' is especially true selling a vehicle to get as much market exposure as poss
I always sell my cars here. The only way to go.
This is the only way to sell a car however I have not tried other platforms. Why should I???? I always achive results on this Carsales.com. Such a good sales platform
Best way to sell my car!
The on-line Selling process is extremely well thought out and logical. My experience was stress free and easy - with the right information and support provided at exactly the right time. The advert is virtually written with accurate vehicle specification automatically provided. The vehicle sales price statistics are well presented and indispensable to both Seller & Buyer. The ability to maintain anonymity in the early stages of receiving inquiries is great for weeding out the "riff raff" whilst still allowing real buyers to get in contact. Well done to the people that design, build and maintain carsalesnetwork.com.au. Definitely the best way to sell my car.
Excellent sales platform
Ive used it to sell a number of cars and boats its easy to use, well priced and always gets results. Also very easy to search cars similar to the one i am selling, to allow me to see what is happening in the market.

Still the best place to list a car for sale
It's the primary place to list a car for sale and guarantees broad exposure which is ultimately what gets a car sold. Compared to other online classified methods, it ensures a minimum standard of car specific info is provided (year, model year, build/compliance dates, KMs, options etc) which makes comparisons easier. There is also seller tools available to assist with setting market competitive pricing.
Two main negatives were:
* CarFacts report drops off after a certain amount of time - I don't think this was clear when I initially listed
* Prank calls and SMS spam from my mobile number being visible (I obviously could have paid extra for this to not be shown however)
Convenient and slick
The platform enable me to present the vehicle the way I visualized. I received several direct phone calls and texts shortly after posting the advert and the following days, as well as the platform emails. Sold within 24 hrs.
Car sold in 8 minutes
I was looking to trade-in my car to a dealer when purchasing a new vehicle however was offered 25% less than what my vehicle was selling for on the private market.
I listed the vehicle on car sales and within 8 minutes, received an "instant offer" (pending inspection) to sell that was very fair (within 5% of what the vehicle is selling for on the private market).
I dropped the car off for inspection on the same day and was provided a written confirmation offer, returning the car at the end of the week to finalise the deal. Throughout this time I had 5 interested private parties and although I likely could have got $1-2k more, it wasn't worth the hassle of waiting, coordinating, going for test drives and the likelihood of haggling.

Waste of Money
This is the second time we have used carsales to sell a vehicle - and both times we have had zero success in selling as a result of the ads. Much better success selling on another platform for free. And I think it rather slack of a company to promise something and then not deliver - why even mention that you will send out a ‘buy my car’ sticker and special offer if you have no intention of doing so? The sticker is an outdated method of advertising anyway - but I thought it would be interesting to see if anything turned up in the post. And I am not surprised it didn’t - disappointed, but not surprised. So that’s a waste of my $68. Try selling for free on another platform first and save your hard earned money.
Sold for my price.
My car sold for what I wanted. It took a while due to pricing, but after price change I got my price within a week. Advice to any seller is to set your price by the market and not by what caryards are selling them for.
Great Car Website
It's best for selling and buying a car.
I sold my car quickly on the website. It gives you some estimate of the car value, prefills all the features of the car (the one that even the owner don't know) which makes it a lot easier for the potential buyers.
They produce car facts report and commercial ad for the car.
if you are concerned about your car security you don't have to share your number. you can message others on the app or website message section
Questions & Answers
Are these cars validated and certified? Do they provide you with warranty of any sorts for some time? As a buyer can I trust the quality of the car?
Hi Rashmi, We provide a platform for sale connecting buyers and sellers, but do not own the cars. The cars are owned by dealers and private individuals. You can filter these sellers by going to Other > Seller Type.
Typically, a dealer would be more likely to offer a warranty and/or certification of a cars condition before sale. If you are looking to buy a car privately, you may like to have a look at our service RedBook Inspect. This service can send a qualified mobile mechanic to inspect the car, before you make an offer. https://www.redbookinspect.com.au/prepurchase/car.
We have a filter option for cars that have been certified/inspected as well look for 'certified/inspect'. -Alex

Can I get in contact with someone who’s car is on hold
The Carsales people should be able to answer this.Only the client who is selling the car would know if they put a car on hold the team should be able to see that in their system i would have thought.
