Cars to Africa?

I have heard that there are some East Europeans that will buy any old car for 500 francs, they then take it to Africa and sell it. Does anyone know how I can get hold of them?

Many thanks

Re: Cars to Africa?

And why would the East Europeans take the cars to Africa? I'm pretty sure it will be easier and same profit if they take them to the Balkans. So I'm sure the North African people do the same and bring the cars into Africa where they know how "things work" to import and sell a european car.

Further down Africa you go the more expensive cars are. 70s W123 merc can go up to 20.000 EUR in Central Africa. Problem is...how to get there

Search for car exporters on anibis and you'll find many.

What kind of car is it anyway?

Re: Cars to Africa?

You can advertise your car on Ricardo at a starting price of SFr 1,-- and be honest with the description. I guarentee someone will buy the car at the market price and the price might even rise to SFr 500,- but at least you will be rid of it quickly, even if it only fetches SFr 200,--

The exporters of poor cars trawl Ricardo every hour looking for bargains.

You need to register a few days before you can start selling, www.ricardo.ch

Thanks guys.

It''s a rather battered old Fiat Punto convertible, 50,000 miles, brilliant in the snow but currently not so good at starting. It's a UK car with no tax or mot.
