Other ways to sell your car:
An auction house is an option for used cars. Weekly sales offer a convenient car-selling service, and you’ll reach many potential buyers. You can also ask the auction company to put a reserve price on your car. Selling your car this way could lead to hidden fees, and you might have to accept less than the trade price for your car to get a quick sale.
If a new car is on the agenda, the option to part-exchange your old vehicle might be attractive. Selling a used car to lower the cost of your new car is a route many decide to take. Our sister site, Available Car offers guaranteed part exchange valuations that are valid for four days. When you part exchange your vehicle with us, it will be hassle-free and convenient.
With us, you can even part exchange your car if it is on finance. Simply speak to your finance company to get an accurate settlement figure, and a member of our team can take you through the process.
Sell your car privately
Who will buy my car for the most money? It’s no secret that selling privately returns the most money when selling your car. There are many ways you can complete a private sale for your old car to get the best price possible.
Local paper and online advertising, including social media sites and classified websites like Auto Trader, are trusted options. However, creating a good advert takes time, not to mention expense.
To sell your vehicle privately, buyers expect several photos and a walk-around video showing every angle of the car inside and out. Pursuing this route can prove costly and time-consuming as you field phone calls from potential buyers asking questions about the car’s condition and whether you still have the locking wheel nuts!
Private sellers might also have to spend money to ensure the car is in a saleable condition. This could include a thorough valet, repairs to alloy wheels or a faulty car window. Car buyers might want to test drive the car and often want information on the car’s service history.
The final part of the puzzle if you sell your vehicle privately is ensuring the money lands in your bank account securely.
