Strictly Necessary Cookies
Some of the cookies we use on listers.co.uk are strictly necessary in order for us to enable you to use the website, for us to let you move around the website and in order for you to use the features. Without these cookies, the website may not work as intended, and we would not be able to provide you with certain services, such as used car searching.

All of the information these cookies collect is aggregated and anonymous - it is only ever used to improve the way our website works. The majority of this functionality is provided by Google Analytics, which set various cookies containing

Some of the cookies we set via our website record information about the vehicles you have viewed or the way in which you prefer your search results to be ordered and displayed.
