The Used Car Pages

Web Page package for Main Dealers + Used Cars
Web Page package for Used Car Dealers

The used car pages can be an excellent way of advertising vehicles which you have to offer.

As part of the standard package, you have:

A main index page for used cars, leading to separate pages for:

  • Used car listings for the range for which you are a main dealer (Main dealer package only)
  • Other makes of used cars under £4,000
  • Other makes of used cars £4,000 - £10,000
  • Other makes of used cars over £10,000
  • Used 4x4 vehicles

Each of the used car listings pages can contain the basic details such as make model, colour, price, and a few further details - basically the same information that you would have in  your regular newspaper advertisements.

With one major difference. The car remains on the listing without further charge until it is sold. An entry in the used car listing costs just £3.00 + vat.

That's it. And there's no charge for removing it from the web page afterwards.

Now we get to the really interesting part. It gets even better.

Any car on the used car lists can have its own web page, complete with full details - and a colour photograph (or two or more), designed for just £2.00 extra!

That's a total of £5.00 including the entry in the main listing and a link to its own web page. Again, it can remain there for as long as you wish, and there is no charge for removal when it is sold.

(Charges are subject to the addition of VAT at the current rate).

Effectively, there is no limit to the amount of detailed description that you can have on a used car web page.

Imagine the great advantage when you have your www web page address stated on your normal newspaper adverts. Prospective purchasers can not only see the listing of all the cars you have currently for sale, but they can see photographs of the actual cars too!

Remember also - the lists are of your cars only. It is your web page, and cars being sold by other companies are not mixed in with yours.


How do we add details of cars for sale?

We have an established routine for this. Cars can normally be added to the list within 48 hours, but in practice that may be within a couple of hours of us receiving the details from you.

The easiest method to inform Forest Web of vehicles to be added to your listings, is to post an e-mail message to: [email protected] (that's a special e-mail address here soley for that purpose, so it can be dealt with quickly), with details of the vehicle in the format:

Category
Registration number
Description, including colour and recorded mileage
Price

Several vehicle details may be included in the same e-mail. Alternatively, details may be posted by normal mail to our postal address, but you have the technology for e-mail, so why not use it!

Requests for removal need only state the vehicle's registration number.

Vehicles where a photograph page is required

The great thing about web pages, is that the quality of the photograph required can be taken with an inexpensive digital camera. We use a little Saynyo Digicam (model VPC-G250) which does the job perfectly and produces a picture as shown at the right. (That's the actual size as it will appear on your web page). Furthermore, the size of the picture file is just 22Kb - which is ideal for a picture on a web page, as it loads and displays quickly.

So, all you need do, is take a picture with your digital camera, transfer it onto your computer (that's very easy, as the camera comes with a cable and the software for the job), and then send the picture file as an attachment to an e-mail which also contains the information you want on the web page. (The file name of the picture file should be the registration number of the vehicle - then there's no confusion).

Alternatively we can scan prints of normal photographs if you send them by post - but that's a really slow method of doing things!

Where a vehicle has its own web page with a photograph, any amount of additional text may be included. There is no need for abbreviations.

Cost of a vehicle web page:

a total of £5.00 (+ vat), including the entry in the main listing and a link to the individual page. It can remain there for as long as you wish, and there is no charge for removal when it is sold.
