Step 1

To view a used car sale, go to and click on the third tab, located across the top half of the webpage, titled “Sell Your Car.” Enter your zip code in the white box located on the left-hand side of the screen. Different used car sale options are available in different areas of the country. You need to see what is available for your used car sale.

Step 2

Take the quiz to determine which used car sale option is best for you. You can click on the blue box to take the quiz or simply click on the green “Place Your Ad” button to begin selling your vehicle the traditional way. There are also two other links you may be interested in to get more information about this site. They are “Sell Privately with VIP” and “Trade In.” Both of these options require additional used car sale fees.

Step 3

Select the used car sale ad you wish to purchase. Prices range from $25 to $60, depending on how long you wish to run your ad. You can also click on the link in the lower right-hand side of the website to “Take the Quiz.” to find out which ad option is best for you.

Step 4

Enter your ad information on the next screen. There are a variety of drop-down menus for each required entry. Begin with the first one and continue through each menu until you have entered the required information about your vehicle. Type in the telephone number you want published in your ad. Also, type in your email address and provide a security answer. Your email address will not be published in your ad.

Upload a picture of your vehicle. Depending on the ad you selected, you may be able to upload up to 18 different pictures of your vehicle.

Step 5

Make sure and review your used car sale ad. Check for any spelling errors or detailed mistakes regarding the car’s condition. You want this information to be as accurate as possible, even if your car is not in perfect condition. Being honest with a potential buyer will help you sell your car.

Look at the optional “Ad Enhancements.” These enhancements include color photos, borders around your ad and larger ads. All of these enhancements have an additional fee, but can attract attention and sell your car faster.

Complete the “Checkout” process by providing a credit card number to pay the fees to place your ad. Auto Trader provides a secure site for completing your transaction.


Review your purchase and your ad on the “Confirmation” page. If you are ready to place your ad, click the “Place Ad” option. Now, waiting is the hard part. Soon your vehicle will be another success story for millions of vehicles sold on Auto Trader.
