So here's a cheap way to flog your old vehicle: Carsguide.com.au is no longer charging for listings on its web site, providing you with a potentially no-cost way of selling your car.
The site (operated by News Limited) will still charge if you want a print newspaper ad or if you want to enhance your basic listing, but the free option might be enough for some sellers. Dominant site carsales charges $60, and rival Fairfax-powered option Drive wants $40 for a basic listing. Putting your car on eBay Motors is $53 (once it sells), and the Trading Post charges $50. Gumtree and Craiglist are other free possibilities, but the latter in particular has little audience presence in Australia and neither specialises solely in vehicles.
