Our Selling Process


eBay Motors, a specialty site within eBay, is the World's largest Online--and one of the World's largest offline--Automotive Marketplaces. It is consistently ranked the #1 Automotive site on the Internet by Nielsen / Net Ratings, with more traffic than AutoTrader, MSN and Cars.com combined. eBay Motors has an average of over 12 million visitors every month and more than one million Vehicles have been sold on eBay Motors since April 2000. An Automobile sells on eBay Motors every 60 seconds. And although it is hard to believe, more cars are sold on eBay Motors before 8:00 a.m. each day than an average Car Dealership sells all year!

That goes for Craigslist too. With 41.4 million unique visitors/month, Craigslist is the largest free online market.


What does this mean to You? Simply that Your Car, Boat, RV or other Motor Vehicle will receive much more exposure to potential Buyers on eBay Motors and Craigslist than You would get if You sold it any other way. For example, 75% of all vehicles sold on eBay Motors and Craigslist are to out-of-state Buyers. Each vehicle listed on eBay Motors or Craigslist is seen by an average of 1,200 viewers and receives an average of 8 unique bidders. More bidders means a higher selling price for You!

How Does TT Motors Trader Helps You Sell Your Vehicle on eBay Motors, Craigslist or Kijiji ?

In many States only a licensed Motor Vehicle Dealer can sell a motor vehicle for You, so in select States or Cities we handle registered motor vehicles (cars, trucks, boats, recreational vehicles, motor homes, aircraft, etc.) differently from other Items that we sell for our Customers.

Our comprehensive motor vehicle listing service gives You a live, professionally-created eBay Motors Auction that will bring interested Buyers to Your listing. You then handle the rest of the transaction as a private vehicle sale.

The TT Motors Trader Motors listing Service includes:

  • An objective assessment of Your vehicle's fair market value
  • Professional photography of Your vehicle, inside and out (typically 30-50 photos)
  • Creation of an eBay or Craigslist listing with a self-running slide show and a detailed description of Your vehicle's features
  • Launch of the Auction on eBay or Craigslist under Your own user ID
  • Payment Collection
  • Professional Shipping

You are responsible for:

  • Setting up an eBay Seller Account or Craigslist account, if You do not already have one
  • Providing an e-mail address and phone number where bidders can contact You
  • Answering questions from prospective Buyers by e-mail or phone

Also, bring all of the keys and remotes that You have for the vehicle with You so we can photograph them.
