Using Gumtree to find cars

If you are wanting to buy a second hand car there are many places you can look. You can check dealerships, newspapers, online, magazines and lots of other places too. You can save a good bit of money by looking around, but Gumtree Cars is one of the best places to look for a second hand car.

Gumtree has recently had a face lift and now it is even easier to find a car you love. One reason why the site is such a good place to find a car is because it is free to advertise here, so there are lots of cars listed. If you want to sell a car, Gumtree Cars should be the first place you think of to advertise.

You can narrow your search by selecting a make or model of car you want, body type, fuel type, age, transmission, engine size, mileage, seller type, price and location. Most have pictures of the cars and the sellers can write down descriptions of the vehicle and important information like MOT, tax and any issues with the car. Each ad will also have ways to contact the owner.

The website is incredibly easy to use and you will find a car that you like in no time - and hopefully at a price you like too! Another good feature is that you can compare the prices of the same model of car and same condition as others very easily on the site, so you can get an idea of what other sellers are putting in their listings.

Unfortunately, as with most websites, there are often a few people trying to sell cars that aren’t roadworthy or people trying to rip you off, so be careful. The vast majority of cars on Gumtree Cars are described as they are and are listed by legitimate sellers but always be wary of people trying to scam you. Be sure to go and check out the car for yourself and take it out for a test drive to make sure that the car is in good working order.
