“Did the job”

Written on: 19/09/2014 by 489O'Reilly (1 review written)

It was easy to put the advert together and the end result was professional and displayed the bike well. I was happy to sell the bike as quickly as I did. When I contacted MCN to ask for the ad to be removed I had a quick response. The only thing I would criticize is that the confirmation email stated I would be informed when the ad went live on the website and of the date it would appear in MCN but I didn't get these notifications. Ultimately that made no difference to the sale of the bike… Read Full Review

“Better than eBay because”

Written on: 19/09/2014 by Bikeseller2014 (1 review written)

I had several genuine enquiries within 48 hours and a very happy buyer within the week. MCN appeals to genuine bikers and is better than eBay which seems to attract nothing but wasters and scam artists… Read Full Review

“Good Service”

Written on: 19/09/2014 by 150Larson (1 review written)

This is the second bike this year that I have sold through MCN. My first bike was sold before it even hit the paper. It sold on through the website. However my second bike took a lot longer and I had to reduce the price a couple of times. However I cannot fault the service and support that I have had from the MCN staff. First class and quick. Great service well done and thank you… Read Full Review

“Painless Sale of Unusual Bike”

Written on: 18/09/2014 by McGuirerb438 (1 review written)

I had an ex police bike to sell, it wasn't being used for the touring intentions it was aquired for and the garage was full. the bike was one of a set of six R1150RS bikes aquired by the Met Police SEG team, but single seat and a niche bike really. Advertised the bike, quick and easy to upload details and use the advice of the website to get the best package of web and newspaper advert. Sold the bike the first weekend after it went in the paper. Some phone calls and emails registering interest… Read Full Review

“Content excellent but not user-friendly”

Written on: 12/09/2014 by Thedanfan (1 review written)

I use mcn for bike reviews, placing and browsing adverts, and getting insurance quotes. I like the layout and quality of information available for the reviews and I have learned to take the reviewers' star ratings with a pinch of salt as I don't always agree with them. The insurance comparison service is great and I use it every year and have always saved money. Improvements could be made to the facilities offered to registered users - access to advert management and insurance quote management… Read Full Review

“Excellent Website”

Written on: 11/09/2014 by Lambzn90 (1 review written)

I used this site to sell my bike. You are taken through an idiot proof step by step process of setting up the ad. Very intuitive and user friendly. Received calls and emails almost as soon as the ad came up. BIke sold within days. I wish I could use this site to sell my other stuff but hey . . . I strongly recommend the MCN site for selling your bike!! Good job!!… Read Full Review

“A lot of enquiries generated”

Written on: 11/09/2014 by 106Ortega (1 review written)

I had quite a lot of enquiries over a few months, it took quite a while to find a buyer but suceeded in the end. Funnily enough I had the most enquiries over the last week.Probably could have sold it four times over. So don't be disheartened if it doesn't go initially, re-advertise it… Read Full Review

“Great way to sell a bike!”

Written on: 10/09/2014 by Cookkb29 (1 review written)

We advertised my son's 125cc motorbike on MCN, having had no luck on other sites, which only generated time-wasters or scammers. Within 4 days of the advert going on the website, we had received a call from a potential buyer who lived 2 hours' drive away; she came down, loved the bike, we did a good deal and she drove it back! One thing which did help the sale and which we didn't actually know about was the buyers pack which offered her the assurance that if anything was badly wrong, she would… Read Full Review

“Behind the times”

Written on: 10/09/2014 by FullEnglish (1 review written)

The advert creation and management is a step behind other competitors like eBay, Gumtree, Auto-trader etc. Adding pictures is slow and painful and you are limited to a small number compared to other sites. Several times when I was creating an advert the site was 'not responding' and I had to re-start & re-type the advert again. Editing an advert, once it is live, is archaic. You have to phone up or email in with your changes which will then take a further 24hrs to appear online. A simple… Read Full Review

“Quick, fast and cheap”

Written on: 10/09/2014 by Shaddow1 (1 review written)

I wanted to sell my honda XLR. MCN was my first choice and i could not have chossen better. The cost of my add was only 99 pence and within three weeks had four inquires. Sold the bike for the asking price. The service from MCN was excellent. How they did this for the price is amazing. The placing of the add was so easy and I had confirmation, of when the add was to be placed, very quickly. MCN even followed up on the add to see if it had been sold or if I wanted to change any details. 100%… Read Full Review

I bought a 2004 BMW 1200 GS through MCN for a tour of Europe in June of 2013 and sold it in September 2014 through MCN after I put 29,000 miles on it. MCN delivered a lot of interest and multiple offers. I would definitely use MCN again… Read Full Review

“Simply the Best”

Written on: 05/09/2014

As a newbie to biking I'm used to all the car selling sites. Having tried them unsuccessfully I thought I'd try a more specialised site from mcn. I knew it would be difficult to sell my bike because of my location but after under 4 weeks MCN found me a buyer. In the end I got what I wanted for the bike… Read Full Review

“Selling a bike quickly to a good buyer ”

Written on: 03/09/2014 by ofBaldwin188 (1 review written)

I thought the mcn website gave good advice on how to take pictures. It also set good selling guides. Also the buyer looked at the advice which built a good level of trust to secure the sale. Overall everything went smoothly and the advert was placed quickly and closed once the bike was sold: The latter important to stop fruitless enquiries. On the price I thought a little high as there is little additional work to publish… Read Full Review
