    You’ll never make the Ebay buyer pay up.

    Threat of a CCJ might help things along though?

    If you like wasting your time, go for it.

    Just relist on Ebay on a one day or 3 day aution.

    I listed my car for sale on ebay in an auction starting at 1p, the car reached a satisfactory level and the buyer said they would collect the car today, subject to sale of their own car.

    They have gone quiet on me now, so I am presuming their buyer pulled out.

    problem is I could do with the cash as part payment on the car I have bought and am collecting next week so my current thinking is

    Sell the car at webuyanycar.com and issue a small claim against the bidder for losses on the difference c£700 + fees and costs.

    Any experience of this process, or any critique of the plan, from experts or armchair experts alike?!

    Just list the car as a classified ad, that way if people are interested they can come and buy it straight away. The few times I have tried an auction the sale has never gone through (in fact I don’t think on any occasion did the person even come and look at it)

    Relist it ASAP. All the other people who were watching or put in a bid on the car will be informed it has been relisted. If you wait those people might find another car.

    If you are in a rush you could put it on a 3 day listing but start it at 10-20% less than the price it reached in the first auction to get it going faster.

    I had similar when selling a high end bike recently and did exactly as above and got the same price.
