Legal issues with auto auctions:
In order to start eBay auto auctions you must have a dealer’s license if you want to sell cars regularly for profit. Additional factors like sale permits, insurance policies and records must be kept in mind to proceed with eBay auctions without any legal problems.
Rent- a-car company auctions dispose some of the old cars which are as good as new cars which can be bought by you. You can also find good used cars in bankruptcy sales as well as government auctions where you can find affordable cars. You must be on the look out for the best cars and bids but you can definitely find some good deals in this method.
Type of auctions in eBay:
You can sell the used classic cars for a nice profit. Ebay motors are a great place to sell such cars. But this generally works only if you can take up repairs yourself otherwise the car will become too costly if you have to pay the mechanic also. You can also sell motorcycles, autos, trucks, boats, accessories and other used cars on eBay’s online auction site.
Guidelines for eBay auto auctions:
From a seller’s point of view you may have to follow the following tips:
- The car must look its best if you want a good price for it. You should invest in a good car painting job. You should also spend money on listing.
- You should have a detailed auction description and lot of pictures preferable in a slideshow.
- The pictures should reveal the interior of the car, driver’s side, rear, floor mats and the front. Close up pictures of a clean car will fetch better results.
