how useful is eBay motors for selling in Canada?

Has anyone used eBay to sell a vehicle in Canada? How much intrest do you get? I've sold vehicles in the past with kijiji and craigslist, and gotten decent response, but I'm guessing I'll have a harder time moving old trucks that way. eBay has worked really well for me selling some secondhand electronics.

Please give me your thoughts.

ebay is a great site for finding anything and i mean anything you want. it opens the whole world for you.

that being said, the big drawback will be that as soon as most Americans see it is in Canada, they will avoid it like the plague as they don't like or understand how to import stuff.

that being said i would do some research first into how to import vehicles into the states as far as what is required for paperwork, documentation, etc. their vehicle importation laws are quite different from ours. get in touch with the closest border agencies (Probably Coutts would be a good choice as it is a major crossing) and inquire about this. that way you can advertise on your ad that you will help with the proper documentation and have a leg up to avoid long delays and buyers backing out afterwards.

just some thoughts for you.

Yeah, I'm thinking that it's not going to be Americans who'll be buying these, as they usually have access to trucks in better condition. Mine are functional, but not terribly pretty.
