Anyone use YT for selling cars or parts?

See a lot of guys overseas looking...they got the money and dont screw around. They just want to make sure they are going to get it thats all.

Cant be on FB...sometimes ones profession can work against you lots of haters out there already had my estranged family threatned in person yrs ago. I was on there for a few days.


Sometiems wonder if anyone legit is on Cl seems to be tons of ads that arent even real. Just spam.

I did not know that you can sell stuff on YouTube. I will look closer next time I go there.

Youtube seems inefficient. Before you can find interested buyers, they need to see your video. Good luck with that unless you can figure out how to draw eyes to your channel. Most videos donít even get 100 views.

If itís car related try bring a trailer or race junk, there is also offer up and let go.

What exactly are you trying to sell? Why not try eBay. If something is priced right and you are willing to ship, you should be able to find a buyer.

If "YT" is for youtube, it doesn't seem like a place to sell anything to me.

You can be on Facebook without using your real name and/or with no personal information at all.

Leery of ebay and selller protection, too many recieve something then nitpick/put a claim in to get it for free, a few have succeeded.

Have dealer friends that sell whole cars and drop out engines on Craigs and Ebay. Sometimes they link to YT vids to show all around and sound clips of engines running before they pull them out. Seems to be working for them.

The only reason someone would want insurance is if they want to pay someone elses bills or want someone else to pay their bills.

BIGOT is a word used by people that can't use logical reasoning to prove that you are wrong when you don't agree with them.

x2 the "Ads" you see on YT are just what John mentioned above- they are created to be linked to from other ads/services, they themselves are not the "primary" ad.... but of course by making them public and shareable they show up in your feed and people share and watch them.

Its only smart business to take as many good high quality pics as possible and a walk around video and if possible an in car video. Especially in an age where your buyers are most likely NOT to be local to you.

Maybe you could donate them to a charity that runs a thrift store. You donít seem to like CL, Facebook or eBay. That will painlessly get these parts out of your hair.
