    If you are selling a motorhome I would be grateful if you could help me out with the testing of a new site I'm building and upload the details of your sale this new site. The site will eventually be open to everyone, individuals and dealers.

    Subscribing Funsters, as long as they are not dealers will be able to advertise as many times as they like and for free, but you will need the coupon code you'll find here.

    Over the last 5 years on our old classified site we have sold millions of £££'s worth of vans, I'm sure a nice new site will be able to sell much more. Thanks

    Hi Jim,
    nice one - will it be for motorhomes only, as in the vehicle or will be it be also for all things for/to do with motorhomes,,,, awnings, bits and bobs and parts etc ?

    Regards,

    Trikeman (always looking for the odd bit).:Wink:

    Hi Trikeman, It will be exclusively for vehicles at first, but I may well extend the scope once it's up and running proper.

    Hi Jim

    Like the look of it.

    I visited it as a potential buyer so here hopefully is some constructive feedback

    As well as year what about date first registered? This would cover imported vehicles and in the "year" the word "new" doesnt indicate anything. A "new" vehicle could have sat on a forecourt for a year.

    What about a search on length - this would be helpful for those who have to park in parking zones where vehicle lengths can mean the difference between parking on the street or having to put it in storage.

    What about class - who can drive the vehicle eg is it car licence or HGV

    A search on LEZ compliance would be extremely helpful for those living within the LEZ with details added on the vehicle page too.

    Some items dont appear to show but this may be because there is no 2nd hand vehicle on it with full details yet.

    Tax/vehicle excise licence - does the vehicle have one and at what rate is this paid now that there are different levels of cost.

    MOT - when is the MOT next due?
    MOT - is there a valid MOT
    HP - is there any HP outstanding on the vehicle
    Number of previous owners
    Length of time owned by current lister

    Do you have a check in place to make sure the person listing the vehicle is actually the registered keeper? this may help prevent fraud.

    Some people selling motorhomes also have accessories would these go in a description? or be listed separately?

    Hope this feedback has been helpful

    A tip, if you want to list a van, its fairly easy, list it, then tick box for a 12 month list, then enter the free coupon code from Jim then PREVIEW the listing and then confirm at top of preview page.

    I like the idea Jim.

    It's like one of those property sites that lists all properties for sale with all agents.

    Hope it's a winner:thumb:
