Posting an ad on Facebook Marketplace for your car

Advertising your car on Facebook Marketplace could help get the word out to people near you.

Step 1

Log in to Facebook and select Marketplace, which you can find on the left hand side of your screen on desktop. On your mobile, the same symbol will be at the top or bottom of the screen.

Step 2

Select the option “+ Sell Something”

On your mobile the button will simply say “Sell”

Step 3

Fill out the details of your car.

What are you selling: We would suggest you write something like "Hire my (car make and model) (transmission) in (suburb)" e.g. 'Hire my Mazda 2 manual in Paddington'

Price: Set the hourly or daily rate (if your car has peak rates set, use your base rates and make sure you clarify in the description - e.g. 'From $7/hour or $15/day')

Location: Enter the suburb your car is located

Category: From the dropdown, select the “Cars, vans & motorcycles” option.

Photos: You can add multiple pictures of your car.

Describe your item

We’ve provided some sample text you can use to describe your car. Just make sure to replace the capitalised words with details of your car.
