    Im thinking about selling my grand prix and dont know if i should put it on ebay or how i should do it? How much of the sale price does ebay get? Ebay is blocked at work and thats when im normally on the computer so i cant get on there and check it out for myself. Should i try other ways first? Ive never sold a vehicle before so im new to this.

    Selling a car on ebay uses a different set of fees than regular ebay listings; everthing is a flat fee regardless of dollar amount. It will cost $40 for an insertion fee regardless of the starting bid. A reserve price option is $5. If the vehicle sells it is a flat fee of $40 regardless of the sale price.

    I'm not for sure, but this may be lounge material...

    I sold my Scout on ebay. Went well. Posted it up and had around 90 emails by the end of the week. Had several people come down and test drive it and it ended up selling for $2000.... twice what I just paid for it. I recomend (SP) ebay for selling cars.

    I sold a '99 2dr 4wd Tahoe and a '99 Miata on eBay. Worked great as they were both "specialty" (read - very few people wanted & could afford them) cars.

    I sold my son's truck on ebay. 110.00 for the add with all the extras. Had a buy it now price and someone used it. Got 500.00 more for the truck than we expected by putting the buy it now option.BTW sometimes ppl will hit the Buy it now option just to screw your auction.

    Thats why im wondering about doing it with my car. Its a limited edition pace car so to get a good price out of it its a matter of finding the right person.

    Both of mine sold to people way out of my local market. The tahoe went to MD. and the Miata to Texas. Worked well because I never would have found those buyers locally (I tried). A friend just sold his '88 M5 on eBay to a guy in Fla. It works.

    So what do you have to do about getting it to someone that far away?

    Does the registration have to be current, or the title be in your name?

    In both cases the registration was current on the vehicles. I had their bank wire the $$ to my bank and the title was transferred directly from my bank to the buyer. As far as shipping, I left it to the buyer. The guy from texas drove over and picked it up. The guy in Ma. had it shipped, all I had to do was drop it with the driver. Very simple.
