Once you choose to auction you car though eBay, the worlds most popular auction site you need to create a listing that will draw potential viewers towards your auction and encourage them to bid.
For those of you who have never listed a vehicle on eBay, it’s been made a whole lot easier though eBay’s Pre-filled Item Information. All you need handy is your car registration number, and eBay will enter the majority of the necessary information for you.
eBays Pre-fill Item information, grabs the essential information about your vehicle such as make, model, year and colour and automatically includes it within the information box at the top of eBays listings. Additionally, it also suggests a title for you auction, based on the year, car make, model and colour but I suggest you change this – otherwise your vehicle listing could have an identical title to a similar listing.
The process is not perfect, it’s only as good as the information that’s held on file about your car and even if it is completely accurate you still need to list additional details and upload photographs of your car. Additionally, with an import it’s unlikely to contain as much details about the car as a UK model.
However, you should still find it an easy tool to start your eBay listings & avoid simple mistakes. The amount of times, where I’ve seen auctions edited, due to the seller listing incorrect information is enormous – eBays new tool should eliminate most of these schoolboy errors.
