I've just bought my girlfriend a new car (Mitsubishi Colt), so need to sell her Fiesta. Firstly, I'm undecided as to where is best to advertise it. I last sold a car through autotrader, and had plenty of timewasters and canvassers call, despite putting 'no canvassers' in the ad. Is selling via ebay a better option? If so, is it best to go for a classified ad, auction with reserve, or should I bite the bullet and just auction it with no reserve ( )? The car is an '02 plate Fiesta Fun 1.3 (last of the old shape). Good points are: 39k genuine miles, very nice condition, 3 owners. Bad points: Little service history. The previous owner was my girlfriend's grandmother, and before that, her grandfather's company. He took the car out of the business before he sold up and retired, but for whatever reason, didn't keep any of the service receipts which would have been in his company's records. So, although I know that the mileage is genuine, and the car has been serviced regularly, I obviously have no proof. The service book is pretty empty too. Oh, the other bad point, it's white. So, after all this; pricing. Freecarvaluations.co.uk says retail £2250, trade in £1275. Whatcar says retail £2555, private £2180, part ex £315 (typo, methinks!). Bearing in mind I would like it gone asap, and would like the money in my account before I have to pay Capitalone for the new car (approx 5 weeks), some sterling advice would be much appreciated. Fastest, most painless way of selling without giving it away please.
