I am just about to list a vehicle for sale on TM. I was wondering if any one had other suggestions of places to sell a vehicle in NZ?.

I assume that TM has this pretty much to itself, as they are charging $88 for the privilege of listing with them. ($39 listing $49 Success fee)

Either that or parked on the road with a sign on it, if the council allows it. TM fees are pretty cheap considering what you would lose if you traded it or took it to the auction.

I had an old trailer to sell, only means possible on TM was to list at a cost same as a car, ended up scrapping it for zero cost/return just to get rid of it, would have preferred to get $20 for it and have someone make good use of it but not at $80 or whatever it was at the time

comparing apples and oranges there

3k car is $59 for a classified vs $79 for the 11k car
3k car is $88 for an Auction vs $88 for the 11k car

It all depends on what/how you want to sell

I generally go for the path of least resistance and pfaffing around which  9 times out of 10 is trade in.

I thought about listing my spare car on Trademe, but the fees were too high for expected return.
In the end, sold to Turners as a "trade-in" and got bugger all for it.
Last I saw it sold via auction for 10x the trade-in price I got for it.
