When will my ad appear?

Under normal circumstances, to get your ad in Classic Car Weekly on a Wednesday, you will need to submit your ad by 11am on the Tuesday of the previous week.

Your ad will normally appear in two consecutive editions of Classic Car Weekly.

Unfortunately we cannot guarantee that free ads will appear in any particular edition(s). See our terms and conditions for more information.

 

How do I book a 'Showcase' ad?

To give your car a better chance of selling, you can book a larger-sized ad in our special "Showcase" section - prices range from £20 to £40.

To book a Showcase ad, call 0900 7900000 (calls cost 60p per minute, lines open 9.30am-5.30pm, Mon-Fri)

Showcase ads cannot be booked online.

 

What are 'required fields'?

Readers of ads will expect certain information to be included in an ad (eg a contact phone number). Where ever you see a star symbol, that means you have to supply the information indicated to be able to submit an ad.

We also require certain personal details to be supplied with each ad for legal or admin reasons.

We won't display any personal details in your ad apart from the ones needed for a buyer to contact you. Neither will we pass on any of your personal details  to any third party without your permission.  Our full privacy policy can be seen in our terms and conditions

 

What is the 'ad text' section for?

The advert text section is for additional info about the vehicle or item you are selling.

You DO NOT need to repeat any details about the make, model, price or your contact details etc if you have already filled in those details in any of the sections above.

You are limited to 200 characters (about 40 words) for this section.

An example of some advert text for a car might be:

Full pro rebuild in 2007, still immaculate, long MoT and tax, all receipts, rare wire wheel version. Plenty of spares.


How do I include a photo?

To include a photo with your ad, you need to have a copy of the photo saved on your computer.

When you get to step 4 of booking your ad, click the browse button to locate the photo, select it, then click "open", then click "add photo".

For a fast photo upload, sizing your image to be less than 1000 pixels wide and less than 300k in size is recommended. Much larger images can be accepted - but they may take much longer to be copied to the CCW site, so please be patient while the message "Uploading photo" is showing.

If you see a message that the size of your image is too big, you will need to resize it to be less than 8Mb.

If your connection to the internet is very slow, it is unlikely that you will be able to upload a large photo in the time limit allowed for photo uploads.

If you do not know how to resize a photo, or do not have the photo on your computer, or if you are having any other problems uploading a photo, please place your ad without a photo, then contact us with your ad reference number so we can hold your ad until your photo has been received by post or email
