“Selling a bike on MCN website”

Written on: 05/07/2017 by Lindseyod242 (1 review written)

I found the process for advertising a bike for sale on your web site clunky and out dated. It would be better if I could setup a sellers account and login and manage my advertisement myself rather than having a 3rd party do that for me - For instance, if I wanted to change or delete the advert. I had no feed back about the number of hits or anything so could not see how my advertisement was performing or whether I would need to change the price. As it stands, I don't think I would use your… Read Full Review

“Time waster only”

Written on: 26/06/2017 by SimonTF (1 review written)

Quite expensive compared to e-Bay (about triple the price) and no useful response whatsoever. I got 5 interested parties off e-bay and it sold to the first person to come and see him. The only response (the same one as last year) was someone claiming to be a ship's steward who wanted to buy it for his niece… Read Full Review

Sold my bike 2 weeks after posting the ad. Had 5 people interested, none of which found me through MCN. Basically paid £18 for nothing… Read Full Review

“Can't get through on phone line.”

Written on: 09/03/2016 by RyleeCollins (1 review written)

I spent an hour trying to ring customer service regarding an ad and gave up in the end as the line was constantly engaged. Clearly not enough staff to deal with phone queries. From past experience I thing it is a useful site for selling your bike but like many of these fast turnaround companies these days when something slightly different to the normal run-of-the-mill process is called for there is no service to back it up… Read Full Review

“Expensive and ineffective”

Written on: 24/08/2015 by ians999 (2 reviews written)

I was disappointed that the print version of the ad took 2 weeks to be published. I had better results from free services such as Gumtree and eventually sold (at a lower cost) via ebay. I had no responses at all from MCN either via website or printed version… Read Full Review

“One enquiry in four weeks!”

Written on: 29/07/2015

First of all i am a big fan of MCN, so i thought i would try to sell one of my bikes on their website, i opted for the £40 advert and put my bike in at a price that was lower than any other similar bike, one enquiry in 4 weeks_ so i gave up and put it on gumtree and sold it in 2 days, maybe if you live in central England you will get more response- but not on the east coast of Scotland… Read Full Review

“No response at all!”

Written on: 22/07/2015 by blTaylor424 (1 review written)

I'm afraid, whilst the online service appeared to run smoothly (and the correspondence with the staff at MCN was all very positive), I only received one call. My eBay ad on the other hand, instantly received a call and the vehicle was purchased two days after the add was placed (whereas my add ran with MCN at 4 times the price for around 6 weeks...) Shame, but what can you do! … Read Full Review

“MCN classified”

Written on: 06/07/2015 by Glass494 (1 review written)

Just cancelled my ad on MCN and they've asked me to post a review. I advertised a very competitively priced motorbike with MCN for over 3 weeks - not one person called me. Plenty of more expensive, higher mileage dealer bikes just like mine for sale - and the sun is shining! So why didn't my ad in MCN do anything? £45 quid down and not a single enquiry… Read Full Review

“Motorcycle Sales”

Written on: 17/06/2015

Having advertised the same motorcycle on two separate occasions with MCN without achieving a sale, not impressed. Initially advised that I was selling below the average price for similar machines, then when no sale was apparent suggested that I should consider lowering the price asked to achieve a sale. Would the next suggestion be that I should give it away for free? Managed to sell using Gumtree… Read Full Review

“Very disappointed with response.”

Written on: 12/05/2015 by Jamesandoliver (1 review written)

Having advertised my bike at a VERY good price considering others for sale I was very disappointed to only receive ONE reply. Amazingly I was able to sell the bike but had to drop price yet again by a further £200. … Read Full Review

“Sale of Motorbike”

Written on: 15/10/2014 by Lianar164 (1 review written)

I advertised my Motorbike for sale. This was My second time As it didn't sell 5 + months ago. Easy to set up but I think it is really down to chance and timing as my bike was 5 years old , little mileage and in good condition. There is little or no interaction from the team. I did try see if there was many viewings but couldn't tell. So if u have a bike for sale it is really down to chance + timing And not to be greedy on sale price + or expectations… Read Full Review

“Unfortunately I made a loss advertising through MCN”

Written on: 23/09/2014 by Sammy47 (1 review written)

I have paid 3 times for an advert with no luck and the advert was on the website for almost 18 weeks! Maybe overpricing the bike was a contributing factor of the bike not selling. But even when I lowered the price I was still not getting any calls from MCN readers. I placed the same exactly advert on two other sites and I started getting calls. The bike was sold within 10 days after putting the advert on other sites. And the most annoying thing is that I could not make the changes on the… 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

No provision for viewing your adverts from your account. Only way to cancel an advert is to send an email request to customer services. I spent a long time looking for my advert and learning how to cancel it… Read Full Review

“Archaic classified editing system !!!”

Written on: 07/04/2014 by easyrider13 (1 review written)

Having to call your customer service dept to modify my advert is an archaic system in this day and age and then the customer service rep had zero social skills too say the least and my request for wording change to the heading WAS NOT updated. Definitely will not even consider MSN Motorcycle classified again till you offer service like Autitrader and Ebay regarding classified editing. Even banks are open on Saturdays and you lot are CLOSED !!!… Read Full Review

“Bike sold on first viewing”

Written on: 21/08/2013

But not one enquiry from MCN? Lots from Gumtree, and a few from e-bay! First person who viewed bought the bike at £50 under asking price. So bike wasn't over priced or a dog! Gumtree is free and has better local coverage, use it!… Read Full Review
