For sale and wanted rules

Eligibility to advertise

Only personally owned cars and parts can be sold on the site. No commercial posting allowed except for our sponsors who have their own section on the site. Other items are not permitted to be sold.

To be able to post in the for sale and wanted section members need to be an "Active member". This is to protect our community from spammers and the site from people who just want to use our free service to sell a car and not contribute.

Active members must meet the following criteria:

  • They have posted at least 5 messages (of value to the community - spamming the threads to get posts count up will be frowned upon by the moderators)
  • They have received at least 2 likes from other members (showing they have contributed to the community)
  • They have been registered for at least 14 days

Adverts must contain the following

  • A clear title describing the car or part for sale
  • A clear price, or at worst "offers around"
  • A description
  • How best to contact the seller
  • Images (if available)

Adverts must not contain any of the following

  • No stolen cars or parts
  • No damaged or fake parts likely to cause injury
  • No links to other sites where you are also advertising, this includes eBay, PistonHeads, Autotrader etc.

For sale and wanted code of conduct for buyers and sellers

Placing an advert on this site means you are agreeing to our terms and conditions.

  1. You are the legal owner of the item offered - i.e. items posted on behalf of someone else will be deleted.
  2. All adverts are provided as-is and are placed entirely at the posters risk. We cannot be held liable in the event of a claim arising from a dispute over an item listed on this site. Where possible we can help to contact the buyer / seller if a problem occurs and we ask that you report any for sale or wanted issues contact one of the team instead of posting the problem on the forums for mass speculation.
  3. Buyer Beware!! SEATCupra.net does not in way warrant or guarantee the For Sale and Wanted section of the forum. Any monetary loss is at the risk of the buyer and seller.
  4. Any adverts placed outside of the For Sale and Wanted section should be reported to a moderator and should be ignored as it could be a scam if they are avoiding following our rules.
  5. It is the duty of the seller to accurately describe the item(s) for sale and set a clear price as per the rules. Any extra charges such as delivery charges must be agreed with the buyer.
  6. No reposting of adverts by deleting the thread and creating a new one. It is ok to "bump" the thread no more than once a month.
  7. No duplicate posts/adverts. You can have one thread with multiple items individually priced, or multiple threads for each item. Not both at the same time with items listed in both threads.
  8. If you enter into an agreement on price and delivery charges, you cannot then go back on that agreement. (once the agreement has been settled)
  9. Payment is the responsibility of the buyer and seller to negotiate, and any payment should be made promptly.
  10. The seller must post or dispatch by courier/mail, the item in a reasonable period. It is also good practice to inform the buyer when the item has been despatched. If the item is worth a considerable amount, recorded/special delivery or postal insurance should be considered.
  11. Buyers should allow a reasonable amount of time for items to arrive if it has been despatched, and upon arrival the item should be checked immediately.
  12. Any seller or buyer that fails to meet their obligation on any For Sale agreement will be barred from using the for-sale and wanted section, or even removed from the forum entirely. Note that in the case of theft or fraud, all information regarding logs, IP addresses, email information will be passed to the relevant authorities upon request.
  13. Once an item has sold, we would be grateful if you closed / deleted your thread contact one of the team if you need help
  14. All the for-sale and wanted threads have a 45-day limit whereupon your post will be removed.
