There are more ways to sell used cars now that there’s the internet. From Facebook Marketplace to Craigslist and other selling/buying platforms the options are many. Determining the best way to sell your car is one of the hardest parts, depending on the condition of your car.
In-Person Sales: Selling in person is always a bit more frustrating, from people trying to haggle you out of money to not showing up at all, or showing up and then just not buying wastes time and energy, not to mention it runs your patience meter down further. The upside to selling in person is that usually, you get cash in hand, which is always the best form of payment to take since it’s fraud-free essentially.
Used Car Auto Dealers: There are many licensed auto dealers that will buy your old car and pick it up, giving you cash in hand for it. Selling to them eliminates the hassle of wasting time doing test-drives or no-shows, and they won’t haggle the valued price on the car with you since they go by the national pricing information for vehicles.
Damaged but Repairable: Slightly damaged vehicles or cars that will need work like engine replacements and repairs can be sold in person, but it may not be for the price you want since a lot of work will need to be done to make the car legal and road-safe again. Unless you make the necessary repairs, you won’t get the amount you may want for the car.
Classic or Rare Cars: Classic car bodies, engines and parts that are in repairable condition or usable will definitely hit it off in online sales for collectors and hobby restorers, and even some restoration businesses. This is where research will be important on your end. If you have a valuable part for a rare or semi-rare car, then you can sell it for a decent price online with selling platforms or even restoration forums for car collectors and enthusiasts.
Be sure to look around for options to sell your used car, as there are likely places local to you that are looking for junkers or slightly damaged cars to take in. These businesses can help you get rid of your car fast with minimal frustration and loss of time.
