“Too Slow”

“Sold BMW but MCN forgot to remove my ad for a month”

Written on: 08/06/2019 by ljacks (1 review written)

I successfully sold my BMW after a month of advertising and phoned up immediately after the sale to ask them to withdraw the ad. I was told that the ad would be removed from the website after 24 hours. However, a couple of weeks later, I received an enquiry about the bike. I had to email the person back with the news that I had sold the bike 2 weeks ago. Then two weeks later another person enquired about the bike. Again, I had to explain that the bike had been sold. After this second enquiry, I… Read Full Review

“Bike Ad”

Written on: 03/08/2018 by MadilynnShelton (1 review written)

Generally a very good service and worth the money to advertise my bike for sale. It sold quite quickly. Unfortunately I sent in ad just when the MCN web portal was not working so new ad's could not be uploaded. This took twice as long to fix as stated on an email reply that I got. I was not pleased. However I was offered my full money back if I didn't want to wait. … Read Full Review

“On line excellent. Telephone useless.”

Written on: 25/04/2018 by BrooklynFisher70 (1 review written)

The web site is good and user friendly. I sold the bike within a week so that is testament to a respected platform for the sale of motor bikes. However, I tried to contact customer services by telephone to cancel the advertisement when the bike had sold using their advertised number on several occasions during their published opening hours. No answer despite hanging on for several minutes on each occasion. Most annoying! Only way to contact them seems to be by email… Read Full Review

“Maybe better luck next time...”

Written on: 26/07/2017 by Larkin270 (1 review written)

This was the second bike i have advertised with MCN. The only response i had with the first one was from a scammer,i ended up trading that machine in against another. Same again this time, one response to date from someone requesting i email them using my email address. The bike will again be traded in against a replacement as with the first. At least this way its quick, simple and safe, the down side being you have to obviously drop the asking price, and its ok if you want another bike. Some… Read Full Review

“NO CALLS ON MY BIKE - BUT SOLD THROUGH EBAY”

Written on: 30/06/2017

I’m 52, always ridden bikes and read MCN for probably 20 years – love the paper but think as far as selling goes from now on I’ll just stick to eBay, I listed my BMW K1200s on MCN but after 3 weeks not 1 call. It almost seems that the ‘old school’ method of selling doesn’t really work anymore and eBay is the main selling medium for probably everything. Their classified add fee for a months advert on vehicles is £13 so represents great value and it sold. I was also selling a car on… Read Full Review

“Service excellent however, website is a relic. ”

Written on: 13/06/2017 by Dawsonug239 (1 review written)

Great service in terms of listing but actually negotiating the website from a buyer's perspective is not easy. Despite from where I access or on what device, it seems to take an age to load and keeps crashing and having to reload. This happens whilst using differing devices at home, work or via 4g on my phone. … Read Full Review

“Only bogus buyers replied unfortunately”

Thought it would be the best place to sell a bike but the only replies for my old FJ1100 were from bogus buyers. Shame really. Sold privately in the end… Read Full Review

“Selling a BMW R1200 GSA LC”

Written on: 08/03/2017

Whilst there were some responses including one from a dealer in Kuala Lumpur and an individuals in New Zealand and Portugal there were few from the uk and eBay elicited more and was eventually sold by that means. I have been successful with other bikes but not this one. In the negative I don't like the inability (for me) to make amendments on line and had to make email contact which, over the weekend, delayed the removal when sold… Read Full Review

“Didn't manage to sell bike, but good customer service”

Written on: 01/11/2016 by gurumax (1 review written)

Well first placing the ad was easy, and the staff were really helpful, but I didn't get a single enquiry... £30 as well... Just unlucky you may think, but when I put my bike on g.. Tree, it sold in one day and I've had many offers from same g.. Tree ad, so it appears bikers are using g.. Tree more than MCN when looking for bikes... Just my observation… Read Full Review

“Better off on eBay ”

Written on: 21/09/2016 by Wooten493 (1 review written)

This is the first time I've used MCN to advertise and to be honest, I wasn't that impressed. You can't gauge whether you are getting any looks, if you want to edit something then you can't do it yourself. I think you do attract a better audience, not just dreamers like I have found. But it did sell through eBay and I do find their way of advertising and managing that advert a lot better.....at pretty much the same price if not a great deal less. I'll stick to MCN for their other attributes but… Read Full Review

“good, but...”

Written on: 17/06/2016 by Nicholsonun443 (1 review written)

On the plus side, the MCN website is generally the first port of call when buying or selling a bike, so it could be a mediocre site, but I would probably still use it. On the down side, the site advises higher than realistic prices, and no reply given when I asked not to receive junk mail… Read Full Review

“Probably still the best place to sell medium to large...”

Written on: 03/05/2016 by RobinDargie (1 review written)

The website feels dated in that you cannot review or edit existing adverts. All of your competition has this facility. Telephoning 9-5 Monday-Friday just doesn't cut it any more. There is also confusion regarding what portions of the full advert, together with which photo will appear in the printed magazine. The text quantity for the magazine is so small its almost pointless. Having said all that I think motorcycle enthusiasts use this site, as its familiar and bike-orientated, compared… Read Full Review

“Modernisation Required please.”

Written on: 16/03/2016 by Anabellec1990 (1 review written)

Initial advert composition was ok. The site is resonably simple to use and get the advert up. That is where is fails though as you cannot edit anything once you post and pay for the add. This to me is a major flaw and is very dated in todays modern sites. I would expect to be able to edit everything as much as I wanted without emailing the team to do it. I would not use the site again until it has this functionality… Read Full Review
