We do not spend money advertising on other media; we do not have a lot of expenses.
We started this website as a free service to dealers as we found the prices charged to advertise on other sites are very expensive.
Therefore, we recognized the need and started the site as a free service to the dealers; not to make money out of it.
We are not as big as other car sales websites - but we are growing every day.
We do not advertise on other media.
Our website's strength lies in the fact that it is optimized for search engines such as google and thus drives a lot of targeted traffic to our website.

We provide you with the tools to do an attractive advert to place in your car at a car market, advertizing display board or on your car windows for maximum exposure.
This website is built to be Search Engine Friendly. Therefore most people who arrive on the website will arrive through Google, Yahoo, etc.
There are so many advertising websites, magazines and newspapers making millions in advertising with very little success. Therefore we do not ask anything to allow you to upload your vehicle on our website; our service is 100% FREE (no catch)
