How to Sell Your Car
Selling your car can be frustrating and take a long time. By following these tips you’ll be able to sell your car very quickly.
Here are some pointers as to how to handle selling your car:
Do some research and find out how much others are asking for cars like yours. You can call people who advertise cars of the same make and model and inquire about the price they’re asking for, then you can call them again after a few days and see is they’ve sold the car, ask how much they got for it.
Set a fair price for your car, make it a round figure. Your car may have more or less mileage on it than average, it may be in overall better or worse than average shape. Set the price you’re asking for accordingly.
Before you begin advertising your car make sure it’s spick and span, it’s not a bad idea to have it detailed, or to do it yourself, the least you should do is a good wash down and vacuuming of the passenger compartment thoroughly.
Advertise on as many platforms as possible, websites, social networks, online motoring forums, tell all your friends and coworkers, place a nice sign on the car itself. Make sure your ads include all the relevant details such as make and model, year, price and anything else that’s relevant.
Allow potential buyers to test drive your car, join them so that you can answer their questions along the way, be friendly and don’t try to hide faults your car may have but make sure to state its advantages. Negotiate for the best price you can get. In order to avoid complications make sure potential buyers know upfront that the car is being sold “as is”.
Once you sell your car make sure to transfer ownership immediately or you may be the one who gets traffic citations for violations the new owners did or worse, the car may be involved in a crash or some type of felony and if you’re still it’s registered owners you may find yourself having a lot of explaining to do.
