Auto trader seems to be the best way of selling privately, as its on line as well as in print. My daughters partner sold his car recently through it within the day of it being advertised.

Hope this helps

Try this site, it tends to be what a lot of traders use to price cars

parkers.co.uk/car…es/

yeah auto trader is a great way to sell, best way to value yours too as you can see what they are worth, as for the cheap starter car, look at peugeot 106/206 possibly a punto and indeed KA and fiesta, try looking at a aygo if you can afford one they are one of the lowest insurance groups about, same car as a peugeot 107 and citroen c1, just different badge so all those should be similar price. GOOD LUCK

oh and parkers is not used by the trade at all, its used by people that think they are in the trade but dont want to pay to subscribe to glass' guide, i used to sell cars for years and shuddered when a punter came in with parkers guide, its a comic!!!

Apologise then on this, as I recently went to Nissan and Ford garages and both used the Parkers guide, so assumed was a trade thing, but least it can give you a guide on where to start.

A friend of mine just bought a W reg 1.8 100,000 miles one owner full service history for £1500

Look in Glass's Guide or Parker's Price Guide in your local woolworths or whsmith.

Don't have to buy it, just look at it in the shop like I do
