PistonHeads Classifieds


Over the past few months, PistonHeads has been working hard to make our already highly effective classified section even better.

Today we launch the new and improved service, which is designed to not only help you sell your car quicker but it will be much safer, too. We have implemented a host of new security measures to combat fraud which should discourage scammers and make PistonHeads an even safer place to sell your car.

One huge benefit of PH Classified is that it is free. This will of course continue, but we are now introducing the option to pay £7 for a ‘Premium Advert’. It will have a number of benefits such as more pictures and 'on top' positioning.

The ‘Standard’ advert will continue, which means there is still an option to sell your car absolutely free on PistonHeads.

What’s more every registered user (registered before todays launch) will be entitled to free premium adverts

So all those who have supported us over the years (or even days, if they are newly registered) will get a free premium advert whenever you want one. Trade adverts will stay exactly the same as they were before.

We hope the new system will work for you and we will be monitoring its effectiveness over the coming months.

Thanks for your support.

    Nice idea, I prefer using this system to AT etc personally. Good to see you keeping it free to the original standard too, seems as though most companies would decide to bump a pricetag on anything they offer as a service these days.

    This new system appears to have lost my previous advert. I just went through the re-registration process and found no adverts to manage. banghead

    The system automatically matches the email address you use to register and pulls in the old adverts. If either the email address is different, or the advert is over 60 days old then it will not be able to pull the advert into the new system.

    ETA: I have just had a look in the system and it appears your advert has gone over 60 days and has been automatically archived.

    Any plans to update the search feature?

    Good old Alastair Darling, the car market is sooooo slow.

    Is it possible to un-archive it, or do I have to re-submit it?
