The new Motors price guide

Written by The Trade Me team in Motors at 2:00pm, Fri 27 Oct 2017

We're making it even easier to buy and sell your vehicle with the new price guide. Enter a few simple details and we'll provide a price estimate for that vehicle.

The tool uses similar vehicle listings that are currently on Trade Me to generate a price range for your vehicle. It's not designed to give a direct recommendation, however it will offer a good idea of the value range available on site for similar cars.

We will be trialing this new tool and asking for feedback to see how useful members find it. If successful, we plan to develop it in due course.

As we announced last week, today we’ve made some changes to Trade Me Motors.

Q&A added to classified listings
Previously on a Motors classified listing, buyers only had the ability to email the seller. We've now added the ‘question and answer’ function to classified listings too.*

This means potential buyers can use the Q&A function on Motors classified listings as well as auctions, and other buyers will be able to see what questions have been asked and answered. More...
