Remember that selling a car privately
will most likely yield the highest price,
and selling on Unique Cars and Parts is one
of the most effective ways of reaching the
Classic Car enthusiast. If selling a car,
it is wise to gather all the necessary particulars
prior to placing your free classified, such
as the registration or VIN number, year of
manufacture and registration expiry.
update your classified as many times as you
like, so don't worry if you forget something
on the first take. Generally, we have found
classifieds with accompanying photos generate
the most enquiries, so if possible try to
gather some images of the car or part. We
have specifically configured the classifieds
system to allow up to 20 images to be added
so that you can detail the exterior and interior
in great detail, this way helping ensure the
potential purchasers have been qualified as
much as possible.
If selling a car, it goes
without saying that you should thoroughly
clean the interior, exterior and windows.
Always be prepared to close the sale with
the appropriate documentation, including service
details, maintenance records, restoration
and/or spare parts particulars. If you still
have a question, don't hesitate to Contact
Us. If you have not already done so, you
will need to register so
that you can place your free classified(s).
We wish you every success with the sale of
Protect Your Password:
Unique Cars and Parts strongly advise that,
under no circumstances, you provide your
log in details to anyone in response to email
or phone requests for confirmation. The scam
is commonly known as "phishing", and a number
of these scams are currently in operation
on the Internet. No employee of representative
of Unique Cars and Parts will ever request
you to divulge your username or password.
A word on Scam’s:
Unfortunately there are some people
that will try to take advantage of the unwary.
Unique Cars and Parts recommend that you always
take necessary steps to ensure the purchaser
or seller is bona-fide. Never, under any circumstances,
part with money by way of a deposit until you
or your representative have sighted the car
(car part or other item) and can ensure you
will be getting what you have paid for. Scams
can be perpetrated by both buyers and sellers.
Always be cautious when selling your car to
an overseas buyer. One scam involves a potential
overseas purchaser sending you a cheque for
an amount in excess of the purchase price of
your car. They will then ask you to send the
change back to them, or to pay the change to
a local shipping agent. There are several variations
on the theme. If you get an offer like this
from overseas, we recommend that you cease
negotiations and do not submit the cheque to
your bank (as bank charges for the processing
will likely occur).
The usual seller scam involves the car, parts
or other items being offered for sale at
a very low price. The seller will say that
the item is located overseas, or in a location
that makes it difficult to inspect (if in
Australia). The seller will then ask you to
send them a deposit, or pay for the item in
full, prior to any potential inspection or
delivery. If you
get an offer like this, we strongly recommend
you take all appropriate steps to ensure
the seller is bona-fide, and be wary of the
likelihood that this is a scam.
