Auto Trader is usually the first place people think of when they have a car they need to trade. Which is understandable as they were one of the first printed classified magazines advertising used cars for sale in the UK. At the time their only real competition was Exchange and Mart, and for a long time, they were really the only option for consumers to advertise their cars for sale. With a history spanning nearly 50 years, they have a well-established reputation in the second-hand car market.
The rise of the internet in the '90s saw them move onto the world wide web and establish a digital presence. Auto Trader first launched their website autotrader.co.uk in 1995 allowing users to buy, sell and search vehicles online. The AutoTrader used cars section is ideal for anyone looking at buying a car from private sellers. It allows users to search using various filters to help find the exact vehicle they are looking for. They later opened up their site to allow car dealers and autotraders with cars in UK dealerships to advertise their stock online. They even provide traders with services to host their own websites for them. The Auto Trader UK online channel took off while the print editions became less and less popular. The last one being published in June 2013. They have since grown into a massive company with revenues of well over £300 Million in 2017. As well a providing a platform for sellers to advertise their vehicles, they also have a valuation service which as explained here is not always that accurate.
The Auto Trader Group has done very well by charging users to advertise cars for sale on their platform. But as a consumer, there is no guarantee that you will find a buyer the first time if at all. So it can become an expensive exercise trying to get your car sold this way. On top of that, you may have to deal with a lot of time wasters, tyre kickers. Also, you're potentially exposing yourself to fraudsters who prey on those who are nervous and unsure about the entire process involved in getting a car sold.
