Where can I find the complete details on listing a private car for sale?

Asked by CarGuruMY77 Mar 31, 2020 at 10:21 AM

Question type: Car Selling & Trading In

I'd like to get the full run down on listing a personal vehicle for sale...
Cost.  Upfront listing fee?  Pay a fee when the car sells?
How long does the ad run?  does it run indefinitely until the car sells?
Renewal cost if applicable?
How many photos can go with an ad?

I love the platform but finding this information is very difficult.

Hello there, There is a $29.95 fee to list your vehicle in our site. Once you pay this fee you can have your vehicle listed for a long as you need to. However, please not that we required every listing to be renew every 30 days (free of charge) to make sure the seller is actively selling the vehicle. This fee is applied per listing and as part of this service, you will get: the funds verified before you hand the keys over to your buyer. assistance from a dedicated agent. a bill of sale generated for you and the buyer to electronically sign. the funds securely deposited directly into your checking account. You can check out the following article for more information: https://cargurus.helpscoutdocs.com/article/232-secure-private-party-transactions Please feel free to let us know if you have any other questions.
