The 5 Best Ways to Sell Your Car

The 5 Best Ways to Sell Your Car
1/24/2020
Getting top dollar value from the sale of your old car is a great way to save money when buying a new car.

Receiving the highest amount of cash for cars requires good preparation and knowledge. There are numerous options for people trying to sell their used cars. Even if your car is not running anymore or extremely damaged, you can still sell it. 


Thanks to the Internet, there are more options for selling your car than ever before. But in order to choose the best one for you, it is essential to get an understanding of how each method works. As you will notice later, it is always a balance between the price and the convenience. In other words, if you do not have that much time for the selling procedure and would like to get cash for a car instantly, you should expect to get less money. But if this is not the case for you, a higher amount of money can be offered for your vehicle. Below are the 6 best ways to sell your car. 

1. Sell a car privately for cash  

Trying to sell a car by yourself will increase your chances of getting the most of the deal. Although, selling a car for cash on your own will be associated with a great amount of time and effort on your side. To make it simple: you will be the one responsible for determining the car’s market value, advertising and getting in contact with potential buyers. In addition to that, selling a car privately also means that you will have to allow the buyers to test drive it, which in turn can be time-consuming and sometimes even awkward. 

2. Make use of autotraders

Autotraders offer a number of options to drivers looking to sell their cars for cash in less time. Therefore, you can advantage from their instant cash for cars offers. Thus, it will allow you to sell your vehicle after getting an instant online appraisal. Another advantage of these companies offering to buy your car for cash is their service of picking up the car from your place for free. Furthermore, you are the one telling them the date and time, which is the most convenient for you. These companies make selling your car for cash extremely easy.  

3. Sell it to a dealership

Another way to sell your used car is by visiting the dealership. Once you do that, you will get an estimation of the value of your vehicle. If you are satisfied with the offer, you can walk away with cash. On the other side, there are a number of drawbacks associated with dealerships. The first one and probably the most important one is the fact that if your car is not in the running order anymore, the vast majority of dealerships will not even examine your vehicle. Normally, your car needs to be in very good condition in order for the dealership to consider it to buy or even assess. 

4. Trade it in for your new car 

If you are planning on buying a new vehicle straight after selling an old one you will have one more option. You can trade the old one for your new car. If it is your plan, then this way is quickest and easiest as you complete two tasks at the same time: selling an old car and buying a new one. Generally speaking, this way requires relatively minor or almost no effort from your side.  

However, you should be aware that there is one significant disadvantage when using this approach to selling an old car. The estimation of your car during the trade-in procedure will be most probably not the best if comparing to other ways of selling. Although, if convenience and ease are your dominant goals during the sale process, trading it in to the dealer is the best way. 

5. Have your car picked up

As was previously mentioned, there are autotraders companies that offer cash for cars. By using their service you will be able to sell your car almost immediately. Another important advantage of these companies, that should be mentioned, is the pick up service that they offer. To keep it short, they will come to your location, make an instant estimation, pay in cash and tow the vehicle away on the same day. Everything you need to do is to make them know about your car and all the work associated with the selling process will be done by these companies.
