Where best (& safest) to sell a bike these days?

Recommended Posts

As soon as the new 4RT comes out, I’m in.

Just wondering (UK) where the best place is to sell a (very nice, hardly any use, mint, 2016 4RT since you’re asking..) bike these days. Not angling for any PM’s to buy it by the way.

Back in the day I used to use TMX but suspect it reaches less folk nowadays. Also sold a couple of older bikes on Car & Classic with no probs. I distrust that well known online auction site. Maybe the classifieds on this site? 

Don’t really want to trade in but equally don’t want potential bike thieves coming round.

Thoughts?

If you are worried about - potential bike thieves , then any type of advertising lets people know you have a bike . 

But it wont sell if no-one knows its for sale ?

you are possibly safer advertising it on trials forums / club websites etc , but your ad wont be seen by many people

 

if you don't trust ebay , then definitely don't advertise it on facebook whatever you do

 

TMX is weekly so worth a try, or if you are in no hurry maybe try some monthly magazines ?

if you want top retail money for it then you will have to advertise & sell it yourself   , otherwise maybe ask some bike shops if they are interested in selling on your behalf 

{ they will obviously want a reasonable cut of the selling price }

good luck

Agree on all the above - thanks.

Maybe I will go TMX - look out for an ad in a couple of weeks!

Cheers.

Word of mouth always wins! Alas it won’t be on the said auction site any time soon...
