Look at the adverts currently displayed in the Market Place to get an idea of what others are putting in their adverts.
Try to find a good balance between providing comprehensive information about the item you are selling/looking for, without making the advert so long it is impractical to read it all.
If there are any unique features of the equipment you are selling be sure to point them out to distinguish your advert from similar ones.
Finally, if you're having trouble composing your advert, try writing it out on paper first before filling in the form on-line.
Once you have read the FAQ and the brief guide above, you should use the fill-in form below to place your advert.
Only use capital letters where appropriate, adverts types all in capital letters will be rejected.
We regret that we are no longer able to offer an e-mail submission facility. Adverts e-mailed to us cannot not be included in the Market Place.
NB: Adverts are often checked manually - those that do not conform with the guidelines in the FAQ may be rejected. UK Karting reserve the right to refuse adverts for any reason.

There are many 'scams' around that try to part you
with your money. Whilst many of these originate overseas there are also
people operating within the UK that may sound both genuine and
knowledgeable about karting.

payment method with better guarantees for both parties, for example
an online payment service such as PayPal (but see the next point
below). If not, ensure you
understand the risks of using other ways of transferring funds.
- When using an online service such a PayPal, check what buyer
protection policies they have and if there are any exclusions.
PayPal, for example, allows you to send money "as a gift", but this
removes any buyer protection they offer if you then have a problem
with the seller.

the most common form of scam and often involves the "buyer" sending you
a forged cheque that will clear into your bank account and only then
do you need to return the balance to them via Western Union or some
other form of instant money transfer. Some weeks later your
bank will bounce the cheque and debit the amount from your account.

service that offers tracking and provides adequate insurance cover
for the goods.
- Never meet people that you do not know alone,
especially if you have expensive equipment or cash with you.
- Just because someone sounds knowledgeable about
karting does not always mean they are trustworthy. Sadly there
are fraudsters in all walks of life, and some people will perform a
great deal of research before contacting their intended victim(s).
