Selling Your Car Using Facebook

With millions of users throughout New Zealand, Facebook is one of the most visited websites in the country. With a great proportion of these millions of users going on Facebook every day, it would be silly not to take advantage of using it to advertise your unwanted vehicle.

Facebook is used not only for communicating and keeping in touch with friends and family, it can be used to advertise a number of things and find people with common interests. This makes it easy to advertise your vehicle to potential buyers in your area. Take a look below at the most effective ways to selling your car through Facebook.

Ways of advertising your vehicle through Facebook

Wall posts

The easiest way to advertise your vehicle on Facebook is to make a wall post on your profile. Simply write that you’re looking to sell your vehicle and ask if anyone is looking to buy. List the make, model, age and condition of the vehicle, the price you’re looking to get for it and – if possible – upload a photo of it. You can make the post ‘public’ so more than just your friends see it. Also, ask your Facebook friends to share the post on their own wall for further reach.

Buy and sell groups

There are a number of local buy and sell Facebook groups that you can join and list your vehicle in. These buy and sell groups are used for selling a number of things – such as clothing, books, home appliances etc – so there won’t be any problem with listing an unwanted vehicle.

Car related groups and pages

As Facebook is commonly used for finding pages, groups and people with similar interests, you will easily be able to find automotive/motor groups that you can advertise your vehicle in. Generally, you’ll have to request to be added to these groups, but that shouldn’t take more than a few days.
