Buying safely


Follow these simple steps for a safe and successful buying experience:

Keep things local by meeting face to face to see the item and exchange money. Make sure you are completely happy with the item before handing over any money. Although we do not recommend paying for an item you haven't seen, if you are planning to do this, please use a secure payment method.

For your personal safety, meet in a well lit public place and always take someone with you, or at least tell a friend where you are going.

Never carry large sums of money with you. If you are looking to buy something expensive, we recommend that you meet with the seller to view the item first. If you are happy to then proceed with the purchase, either go to the bank with the seller to make the payment or arrange to meet somewhere safe with the money.

Be aware of our warning signs of top scams, and if in doubt about a seller either contact us for advice or don't proceed. Use your common sense. If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Buying from Car Dealers in Lilongwe, Blantyre and Mzuzu. If you are purchasing goods or services from Car Dealers (e.g. Impoters of Cars fom China/Japan etc) pleasemake sure you check the registered status relevant authouritis before handing over any monies. And please make sure all the dealings are done on their premises rather out in the fields.



Selling a car might sound daunting, but were here to help ensure its as quick and easy as possible.

Setting the price

Pricing your car correctly can mean you get a quick sale, so its worth taking the time to think the price through.

  • Get an expert car valuation with the any local car garage dealer
  • Compare your car with similar models for sale privately on here.
  • Consider your cars mileage, age, condition and features for a more accurate price
  • Factor in room for the buyer to haggle
  • Writing the car advert

    Pamsika Classifieds does some of this work for you by automatically displaying your cars basic details in the writing field. All you have to do is:
  • Ensure your ad reads well and sells your cars strong points, without exaggerating
  • Write clearly, avoiding jargon or complicated terms e.g.metallic red, rather than Fire Opal
  • Include key features and desirable equipment such as leather seats or air-conditioning
  • Include how long the tax and MOT has to run and any recorded service history
  • Keep the advert as concise as possible

  • Taking great photos

    Good photos make it far more likely for you to have a successful sale quickly, and taking them neednt take a long time.

  • Clean your car inside and out
  • Make sure your pictures are sharp and in focus
  • Take pictures when the car is well-lit and dry
  • Clear space around the car so you can get the whole car in
  • Photograph important details such as alloy wheels and don't forget the interior
