Classifieds are an easy way to find the exact business, service or product in your local area to suit your specific needs and requirements. Everyday, South Africans log on to online classifieds to advantage of their usability and features. These five local apps are some of the best that cater to different needs.

Autotrader SA


Autotrader is one of South Africa’s biggest vehicle classifieds where you can find and buy new and used cars, bakkies, trucks, SUV’s, trailers, motorcycles, boats & commercial vehicles. Search for the vehicle you’re looking for according to make, price, model, year range, mileage, how far the dealer or seller is from where you are and other criteria. Search results will lead you a seller’s website, contact details and location.

Junk Mail


The Junk Mail app makes it easy and quick to sift through thousands of ads you would normally page through in the newspaper version of the publication. You can place your own ad for free, or search through 19 categories and 100s of subcategories to find a product or service that you’re looking for in your area.

Looking to sell or buy or rent a house, flat or cottage? The Property24 app will help you find the ideal place you’re looking for. You can search for sales or rentals anywhere in South Africa and calculate your approximate monthly bond repayment. Once you’ve seen something you may be interested in, you can easily contact the seller or estate agent to set up a viewing or get more information.

Yellow Pages SA


South Africans have been paging through the Yellow Pages for years to find plumbers, electricians, doctors, interior decorators and many other services. With the help of technology, we no longer have to refer to the thick and heavy book to find what we’re looking any-more. The app gives you localised search results for businesses near and around you and you can also save all your searches for easy reference in future.
