How do you put cars on this Facebook Marketplace, I'm with Spidersnet and they can't feed our stock onto it at present.

Sold 2 bangers via market place last week both around 200k. 

Got loads of messages within minutes of them going live. I did what you do AD sent a copy and paste message with weblink saying read that, watch that and then call. 

 

Both sold within 2 hours and cleared offsite ignored the ones that wanted to chat and make offers. 

"Is this available?"

"Yes"

Then they go silent. For the love of god why do they message?

FB has taken over eBay for pondlife, but Ebay sold me the banger plus £50 tip.

Once FB Marketplace sent a message from me to something I was looking at, even though I hadn't actually sent the message. I don't know if I pressed something accidentally, or if FB sends messages automatically somehow. When I reply to people sometimes they don't even deliver.

We were similar (only one last week) but three in three days all of a sudden and enquires up too. Same last year- crap May, good June, so hopefully everyone will get busy too.

3 sold this past week.

1 at cost, small profit on one, slightly better profit on the other. All old stock sat on them around 3 months.

Glad to get that money back and put it into another bad purchase haha.

These threads do make me smile

”wait until the kids are off school”

”it’s quiet cos the kids are at school”

”the World Cup is on”

”it’s Easter that’s caused it”

”Brexit”

”no ones buying diesel cars”

”everyone’s on holiday”

”it’s raining”

”it’s too hot”

”it’s Christmas”

If you believed everything written on this forum you’d think there about 3 cars sold each month across Britain.

No EPV, just two sold.

I would of been the third if I had not had a call one hour prior to handing over a beautiful Jaguar to a bloke who had to cancel while he was on the train to collect it as his wife decided to tell him by text message that she was having an affair.  You literally could not make this kind of stuff up.  Oh, and he phoned to tell me this while in tears.  I don't think he was kidding.

So many excuses now because we all feel there must be an excuse.  I think its genuinely all the confusion out there with Brexit (hate admitting it) and all the nonsense of the petrol/diesel ban and the ULEZ zones. 

The perfect storm cometh.

Really. I’ve sold plenty of diesels and had my record month last but one. June has started well.

You are definitely flying if you are already into July. 

I am still in June, 6 sold and collected, 5 of them bought to order.

If you can see my call list on a Merc E220CDI Coupe, they went wild for it. One woman checked 3 times if the car was REALLY sold.
