.....still Trade Me?  My wife has a 2005 Echo we want to offload, just wondering what the best avenue is to do it these days?  Been a while since I sold a car privately, have mostly traded on new cars in recent years.

TradeMe probably still the best. Facebook marketplace is good (and free) if you don't mind sifting through a bunch of muppets offering you half your asking price or "I'll pay it off $50 a week G".

I've used TM, but been a bit sneaky about it to avoid their horrendous fees ......  ;)

Trademe flat fee listing for classifieds is the way to go.

Pritty much as above.

 

Trademe's fees for (low volume) selling cars are a lot more reasonable than their general fees:

Facebook marketplace just comes down to your tolerance for dealing with no shows & lowballers, If you are willing to deal with that it is good and free.

Thanks folks, I've listed it on Trade Me to see what activity it generates.

Have you considered listing it here?

Not really, I'm not in a rush.  I'll see what activity it gets and then spread the word if needed.
