How to handle selling your vehicle.
Whether you’re moving nearer public transport, trying to improve your carbon footprint or you’re ready for a newer car, there are plenty of reasons why you would need to sell your vehicle. But before you rush into moving your car on as quickly as possible, check out these tips to safely and smoothly ensure you get the best price for your vehicle.
Do your research
Look online for similar cars to understand your price point. Look for a similar make and model of vehicle with comparative mileage. Pricing your car too high may mean that it won’t move, too low and you could be getting ripped off. Other listed vehicles aren’t an exact guideline, but they can help to ensure you’re not over-asking.
Clean it up
First impressions make a difference. Although selling a used car means that the condition may not be perfect, you want to ensure it looks clean and tidy to attract buyers. Wash the exterior, remove junk from the interior cabin, and pay attention to the wheels and windows.
In some cases, listing your vehicle in the newspaper classifieds will work wonders. Generally, it will be more effective to use the internet to sell your vehicle. List it on credible websites and take advantage of social media. Alternatively, you can sell it to a used vehicle dealership that will handle everything else for you.
Remember to meet potential buyers in a public space and to let your insurer know once you have sold your vehicle. For all of your car insurance needs, contact C.V.
