Terms and Conditions

Key terms and conditions for private advertisers

Classic Car Weekly's free classifieds service is for private advertisers only (trade customers please call 01733-468000).

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).

As Classic Car Weekly is primarily an historic vehicle publication, all advertisements for post-1990 cars will be reviewed and judged on their merits by the editorial team prior to acceptance, and may not be published.

There is a limit of 200 characters (about 40 words) for each ad.

One non returnable photograph per ad is included free of charge.

All adverts for items not connected with motoring will be reviewed and judged on their merits by the editorial team and may not be published.

All adverts are copyright of Bauer Consumer Media Limited, publishers of Classic Car Weekly.

Bauer Consumer Media Limited reserves the right to publish your advert in other magazines where we consider it relevant.

The full terms and conditions for private advertisers are shown below.
