Some tips for finding used Jet Skis or other models of personal water crafts include searching on classifieds sites such as PWC Trader, Boat Trader and Craigslist, using geographic filters to find local sellers. Buyers also find used personal water crafts on auction sites such as eBay.
Whether a buyer is looking specifically for a Kawasaki Jet Ski or any make and model of personal water craft, it helps to focus the search on local sellers in order to avoid paying costly shipping or transportation fees. Purchasing locally means the buyer is able to visit the seller and pick up the personal water craft, or in some cases, have the seller drop the vehicle off at a specified location. Buying remotely means paying additional costs for shipping to get the water craft from the seller to the buyer.
Craigslist is commonly used for finding local sellers because the site is structured to function based on specific cities or regions within a state, rather than as a nationwide searchable database. Once a user chooses the closest city or region, it is possible to view listings for personal water crafts in the Boats category of the For Sale section. Search engines on sites such as PWCTrader.com typically only filter by a specified radius from a given ZIP code.
