New site for MotorWeb

Written by The Trade Me team in General and Motors at 9:30 am, Tue 16 Sep

Last Friday, we released into the wild a shiny new public site for MotorWeb.

Buying a vehicle can sometimes be scary, but MotorWeb provides protection for vehicle buyers with The Vehicle Information Report™ (VIR).

The VIR is a full history check for a vehicle, and includes information like if a vehicle has money owing, an inconsistent odometer or is reported stolen. It’s important that you know the history of the vehicle you’re about to buy; if you buy a car without getting a VIR you run the risk of it being repossessed or being worth far less than you paid for it. More...

New: Hall of fame

Written by The Trade Me team in General at 10:00 am, Thu 4 Sep

Remember the handbag Tana used to hit his Hurricanes rugby teammate over the head with? How about ‘Rocky’ the boulder that smashed through a house? Surely you’ll remember the auction for the Jesus Christ-lookalike pita bread?

We’ve created a brand new home for memorable auctions we’ve had over the years, and it’s known as the Hall of fame. We’ve just kicked it off, and we’ll be adding to it over time with a bunch more memorable listings gracing its halls soon.

If there’s a listing you think belongs in the Hall of fame, drop us a note to our suggestion boxMore...

The Starship Spring Clean 2014 is under way

Written by The Trade Me team in General at 9:30 am, Mon 1 Sep

We're stoked to be supporting the Starship Spring Clean again this year! It's a way for us to help out one of New Zealand's most awesome organisations, the Starship Children’s Foundation and will run through the month of September.

There are 3 things involved: list an item (preferably at $1 reserve), pledge to donate auction proceeds to Starship, and then donate once the item is sold.

It’s a win-win: while cleaning out your cupboards, you’ll also be raising money for a great cause. More...
