Trading Post is Australia’s most popular classified website. It contains user-created adverts and thousands of bargains. Users can buy and sell anything from cars and motorbikes to household items. The following review of the Trading Post highlights the site’s best features
Selling is simple and free for a lot of items, as the majority of categories don’t charge if the item is listed for under $500. You can sell anything from used cars, motorbikes and heavy farm equipment to leisure and sports equipment. You can even sell livestock and pets
Create an advert
You can create your advert online or call Trading Post, who will organise it for you. The advert is created like an eBay listing with a title, some text and up to nine photographs. It appears on the website and on Trading Post mobile, and remains in place until the item is sold. If you are selling in bulk, or selling as a business, you can contact the business development team to discuss lower charges.
New and used cars from all 8 states are listed for sale. There are often as many as 50,000 cars for sale at any one time. The most recently added cars are shown on the front page of the car's section. These recently listed cars are also found under subcategories like 'Classic and Unique' and 'New and Used'. There are also other categories for 'Trucks and Buses', 'Trailers' and 'Parts and Service'.
Clicking on the 'Car Showroom' link brings you to a part of the site that's dedicated to new cars. Here, you can read road tests, browse high resolution images, check the latest offers and compare cars. You can check the specifications of a particular car or compare the equipment from a selection of cars within your price range. Your next new car When you find a car that you like, you can check for cars on sale in your area and, if you find a car that you are interested in, you can use the finance calculator and the insurance quote tools to calculate your monthly costs. Final word The Trading Post began life in 1966 as a weekly classified newspaper. For many decades it was one of Australia’s most popular publications. Today, the market for selling and buying cars has changed. Websites like eBay and Car Sales.au are Trading Post's rivals, so they now trade exclusively online. Users still get the same experience of Trading Post through the web, but enjoy more content and a wider readership.
