Market Place

It is in members’ interest to include engine and/or chassis numbers to prevent fraud. Advertisements in this section are free to members, unless business orientated, when a nominal charge will be levied at the appropriate rate. The AC Owners’ Club Ltd holds no responsibility for the items or services advertised. These advertisements will appear on the ACOC website by the middle of this month.

A number of sellers have been approached recently by fraudsters posing as potential purchasers. Sellers are cautioned that their internet advertisements reach a wide audience and that they should beware of scam and “phishing” approaches. Under no circumstances should confidential information such as bank account or credit card details be divulged unless there is certainty about a purchaser’s credentials and honesty. When placing your “Market Place” advertisement please make it clear if you do not want it to appear on the ACOC website.
