Traditionally you would normally associate selling your motorbike with sites such as Autotrader, Gumtree or eBay, we conducted an independent study of 100 customers and asked them about there experience using such methods.
Autotrader: We have to be honest and say that over 50% of people who used Autotrader were completely happy with the service, the people who were not gave reasons such as, “I got a lot of time wasters”, “people would arrange an appointment and not turn up” or ” people had really unrealistic expectations of costs” basically selling your motorbike privately will probably get you the best cost but the hassle of dealing with “tyre kickers” can be more stress than its worth, at we want your motorbike we pride our selves on agreeing a cost over the phone, an agreed time and date, plus a no hassle service. What could be easier than someone turning up in a van from a recognised brand that will simply transfer you money on the same day before we take the motorbike.
Gumtree: This site for years has be known as the cheap way to sell motorbikes, you can simply list any vehicle at any cost for free, this does have its down sides as the quality of customers are not always the best and because its known as a cheap site this drives cheaper customers too. We again asked 100 users who had tried to sell there motorbike on the site what responses they had. The majority of response were, “I didn’t like the 100’s of phone calls I received from people asking me if they could swop my bike for different items”, “I wasn’t happy with amount of discount people expected, especially when it was fairly priced” and “to many people expected me to deliver the bike to them” We Want Your Motorbike used this information to improve its service, it goes without saying that we would not try and swop item for a bike, we also don’t ask for heaven and earth when it comes to costs we use the market to price up a bike fairly and offer an acceptable amount and even better we will always pick your motorbike up for free if you agree to sell it to us!
eBay: Everybody knows the global brand eBay but have you ever attempted to sell a motorbike on there? I don’t know how you feel but I associate eBay with parts, bits, spares etc not vehicles, again we asked 100 random users who had attempted to sell motorbike on eBay for there experience. The feedback was on a whole quite good, the negative points however were, I sold my motorbike for many thousands of pounds, I had to chase the buyer for payment, they expected delivery and I had to pay eBay and PayPal lots of money to complete the deal. Granted it was exciting to see the bid process and my money going up and up but the overall gimmick was a let down due to the amount of money it cost me to complete the auction. One particular user said they used a eBay app on a android and got this message “Items in this category cant be listed in the app. Please go to our website to list your item” Come on eBay the world has gone mobile!
Again We Want Your Motorbike pride ourselves in the fact that we will always pay for the bike there and then, we wont expect you to deliver the bike to us we WILL pick it up for free and the agreed fee is what we pay to you! What is the best place to sell your motorbike?
