The Old Fashioned Way
A lot of people in Ibiza still buy and sell their vehicles the old fashioned way – through a putting a sign up in the car with their phone number or going through a traditional car dealership.
4 – Car Dealerships
Where? Keep your eyes peeled, used car dealerships are scattered all over the island and are usually found on the side of larger high-ways. They often already have an existing relationship with established mechanics, so this can make life easier if it comes to fixing any future problems.
5 – On the Street
Where? Look out for signs in windows of used cars with phone numbers all over the island. There are a few places where sellers park to get more attention, for example the bit of waste-land at the first roundabout as you’re entering Santa Eulalia from Ibiza town end, there are usually a few second hand cars for sale parked up there throughout the year.
