Selling On Craigslist

You go to Craigslist.com and pick an area in which you are a part or close to. For example I am in Tazewell, TN and I use the listing under Knoxville, TN. You click on the icon for posting a listing. Leave a detailed description of the vehicle you are trying to sell with the amount you are asking. Pictures are nice to post of the vehicle if you have them. You can post anonymously. Craigslist will assigned a mailbox to you and forward any emails to your normal email. You can also leave a phone number in your posting if you would rather get calls from perspective buyers. I'm not sure if Craigslist charges you for any sales that are finalized, but read the website information. That is the best way to know the details of their service. (08/10/2010)

Here's my method: For example: if I want to sell a "tool chest"!
I do a search for "tool chest" and view all of the popups, and see which category is the most displayed; which I see as "Tools".

  1. Select: "Post".
  2. Select: Tools [as the category].
  3. Now, what you type in as the main heading is what will be found when someone searches for "tool chests", so you want to capture that description in the main title. [Acme Tool Chest, 8-drawers, mint].
  4. I would advise you to ask just a little more than what you're willing to take. Amazing how many responses you get asking "How much cash are you willing to take?
  5. Be sure to think about shipping costs, you can either say "includes shipping", or "shipping is extra" [someone from 5 states away may want it and shipping may be more than from the next town over].
  6. Adding pics should be a must, everyone wants to know what they're going to buy.
  7. Once you've completed the advert, you will have to "accept their agreement"; then you'll receive an email from CL; open it and review your ad; if all is OK, you will have to select: Publish.
  8. Keep that email; this is the ONLY way you can go back and review/edit/delete the ad!
  9. Add a folder to your email program titled "CraigsList", then a sub-folder titled "Inquirers", [here you can keep the incoming emails of those who you think are sincere buyers].

I forgot to mention one important thing, especially regarding selling an automobile:

Make sure you indicate "as is" somehow/someway on the sales receipt and the new owner initials recognition of the fact. You don't want it to be driven away and returned with mechanical problems that the new owner created. (08/17/2010)
