Actor - Autotrader Scraper

Autotrader scraper

Since Autotrader doesn't provide a good and free API, this actor should help you to retrieve data from it.

The Autotrader data scraper supports the following features:

  • Search any search results - Get any search results. New or used cars with brand and model information.

  • Filter by anything without any limits - Filter your search results by brand, price, and any other options that the website provides. No limits!

  • Scrape any listing details - Retrieve information about the cars. Brand, model, price, mileage, fuel type, transmission, interior colors, exterior colors, and many other features.

馃嚞馃嚙 If you are looking into scraping Autotrader.co.uk instead of the UK store, please check our Autotrader Scraper.

Bugs, fixes, updates, and changelog

This scraper is under active development. If you have any feature requests you can create an issue from here.

Input Parameters

The input of this scraper should be JSON containing the list of pages on Autotrader that should be visited. Possible fields are:

  • startUrls: (Required) (Array) List of Autotrader URLs. It should be search, list, or listing detail URL.

  • includeReviews: (Optional) (Boolean) This will add all the reviews that Autotrader provides into the detail objects. Please keep in mind that the time and resources the actor uses will increase proportionally by the number of reviews.

  • endPage: (Optional) (Number) Final number of page that you want to scrape. The default is Infinite. This applies to all search requests and startUrls individually.

  • maxItems: (Optional) (Number) You can limit scraped items. This should be useful when you search through the big lists or search results.

  • proxy: (Required) (Proxy Object) Proxy configuration.

  • extendOutputFunction: (Optional) (String) Function that takes a JQuery handle ($) as an argument and returns an object with data.

  • customMapFunction: (Optional) (String) Function that takes each object's handle as an argument and returns the object with executing the function.

This solution requires the use of Proxy servers, either your own proxy servers or you can use Apify Proxy.

Tip

When you want to scrape over a specific listing URL, just copy and paste the link as one of the startUrl.

If you would like to scrape only the first page of a list then put the link for the page and have the endPage as 1.

With the last approach that is explained above you can also fetch any interval of pages. If you provide the 5th page of a list and define the endPage parameter as 6 then you'll have the 5th and 6th pages only.

Compute Unit Consumption

The actor is optimized to run blazing fast and scrape many as listings as possible. Therefore, it forefronts all listing detail requests. If the actor doesn't block very often it'll scrape 100 listings in 2 minutes with ~0.15-0.25 compute units.

During the Run

During the run, the actor will output messages letting you know what is going on. Each message always contains a short label specifying which page from the provided list is currently specified. When items are loaded from the page, you should see a message about this event with a loaded item count and total item count for each page.

If you provide incorrect input to the actor, it will immediately stop with a failure state and output an explanation of what is wrong.

Autotrader Export

During the run, the actor stores results into a dataset. Each item is a separate item in the dataset.

You can manage the results in any language (Python, PHP, Node JS/NPM). See the FAQ or our API reference to learn more about getting results from this Autotrader actor.

Scraped Autotrader Output
