*** PLEASE READ BEFORE SELLING*** Selling on Rover800.info

Post by Richard Moss » Thu Feb 19, 2009 8:35 pm

As originally posted on 'another site' by Lord Sterling and Freewheel - with a couple of modifications..

Posting in the For Sale/Wanted section
There is no minimum posts requirement to make before being allowed to post in sales/wants, but we would ask you to at least contribute to the forum as a whole, as well as buying/selling, this isnt a free advertising site.

Guidelines for selling on Rover800.info
Selling on Rover800.info is free and easy once you have the required administrator approval, simply post a new topic in the "For Sale" section and start selling! We're always interested in what you've got for sale. However, before you advertise please read these simple guidelines as it will make selling your items a whole lot easier for you and potential buyers:

Be clear about what you're selling
Please, be clear about what your selling, a couple of short words wont sell your car, people are not interested in chasing information and your thread will be ignored. Include as much information as you can, whether its about a nut or a whole car, it saves wasting time on asking silly questions. Again, people will not be interested in an advert with a few words and a price.

If your stuck on what to write about, use the "Check List" further down this post to give you an idea on what to put down about the item your selling.

Include Pictures
If you can, make an effort to include some pictures, and make sure they are clear as it will give potential buyers a chance to see what what they might be investing in. Most people will not be interested if you don't include any pictures.
Note: Please try and keep these to approx 1024x768 in size maximum!

Tell us your location
Tell us where you and the car are located, it will give potential interested buyers a chance to see if they want to travel that far.
If your location isn't present in your user box (where you avatar and info is stored) then tell us where you are.

Its not much to ask, but far too many people think that they can come on here and sell something with a few words just because its a Rover 800 enthusiasts site. This is NOT the case, if you cant be clear, your thread will be ignored and most probably deleted. By following these simple guidelines, it will make everyone's life a little easier.

Most importantly, remember this - Buyers do NOT want to chase sellers for details, dont think a few words will have people sending you messages asking about it, they wont. Put as much detail in as possible, include some pics and the location of the vehicle and you might actually sell your car.

If you choose not to abide by these guidelines you risk having your thread ignored or completely deleted.

See the "check list" below to help you compile a good post.

If you have any questions, please contact a moderator or an administrator and we will be more than happy to assist.

Thanks,

The management at Rover800.info
