ebay i dont think is the way to go they charge you almost $100 to sell your vechical i would try putting it in the paper i know almost every thing i put in the paper sells for pretty much what i want. with ebay you still have to pay them if it dont sell and its still gonna be close to $100 i think its 50 to list and 40 as soon as any one bids on it. you might be able to put it on there for the buy it now price but i dont know if they will still charge you that much or not.
I would put it in the paper and park it by the road. or drive it with a for sale sign on it and park it in places with alot of people like walmart i sold one of my cars that way i came out and some one was looking at it and he wanted to drive it so i game him the keys and jumped in with him (didnt want him to steal it and have no way to get home) but he really liked it and went to his bank and game me half the money now and the rest before we got the title switched.
but unless you wanna sell it NOW and dont care what you get for it i wouldnt put it on ebay.
good luck with whatever you do

I have sold many items on Ebay, including cars/ trucks. Where else are you going to get the amount of people looking at your truck for less than $100. It is the best marketing you can do to sell something. I have sold everything from brake rotors to a Ferrari. All went well with no problems. Be honest, lots of pictures(you can't do lots in the paper) and price fairly. You will sell it. Good luck

What type of truck is it?
I love ebay. I don't have time to fool w/ tire kickers and ads here and there. You put it on ebay... it is sold 7 days later... all while sitting on your butt. I think there is so many people on ebay now... it is a seller's market. I have been looking for another cabover and I can just about find them cheaper in the trucktrader than on ebay.
I still think you can also purchase good deals on ebay, but now(for me at least) it takes weeks or months to find a steal on something.

I'm not ready to sell at this point.I haven't decided on a price.I'm having a hard time putting a fair price on it.I've got to do a little more research before I commit.

Thats a nice truck! It would match my Ram 1500 perfectly:weightlifter: If you dont mind me asking, why are you seeling it?

The reason I'm selling it is because I've just retired and changing directions in the green world.I used it to pull 16 ' trailer and bobcat,doing custom gravel and soil jobs.Sold my bobcat ,so I don't need it anymore.

After A lot of thought I have come up with a price.Its has been really hard for me to put a fair price ,but I got to start somewhere.After checking on KBB,EDMONDS,NADA and E-bay I'm going to ask $16995.00.Cause once you put a price you can't go up only down or firm.
02-23-2007, 12:52 PM
too much for me... good luck with it... looks like a great truck.
02-23-2007, 04:49 PM
I had to start the price somewhere.

I had a really bad Ebay experience last week, I sold a 87 Chevy C-10 it is in excellent shape woth no rust and runs good, Anyway I started the bid at 25$ with no reserve(had to go) anyway I got sooo many questions about the truck and answered them all honestly. So the auction ends with a selling total of $2075.00, I was happy, but suprised that the winner of the auction never asked any questions about the truck until after the auction when he called me, He asked, is it the original paint I said yes I think, he also asked if it was a long bed or short. Anyway he drove 5 hours to get it 10 days later and said because it had been repainted he couldnt give me 2075 for it. He also tire kicked the crap out of it. I told him to get lost. He wrecked my feedback and cost me 110 in sellers fees. I always say in my auctions that it is good to view and drive before you bid but this guy thought if you win the bid you are the first one who gets to see if you want it or not I guess??

You are right a lot of crazzy things happen on e-bay.My wife has a store and is a power seller,so we know.I've seen a lot of sellers re-post items because of dead-beat buyers.It'll cost me about $75-$100 for a big add in the Tennessean paper, about the same as E-bay.E-bay will reach a lot of good and bad buyers.I haven't got the nerve for a no-reserve,that takes BALLS.Thanks for your in-put.
