Thinking Of Selling Your Car Online?
How to go about selling your vehicle over the internet.
One of the easiest ways of selling your car is now online. Previously, you may have put and advert in the local paper, local shops or even the regional car magazine such as Auto Trader but now there is a quick and easy way of doing this and its online. There are now hundreds of website’s and business who will offer you cash for your vehicle without even viewing it, does this sound familiar and to be honest sounds too good.
When selling your car online the biggest off put is the valuation, you may get a lower valuation on your vehicle because a lot of buyers may base their costing on a previous model or vehicle they have bought. The plus points of selling your car online is you don’t have to wash, valet or service the car as buyers will collect the car in any state. You don’t have to wait in all day for somebody who has enquired and then they don’t show up and you don’t have the task of re advertising your car over and over again, your car remains online until sold.
When you first list your car online via a company or website you will be contacted by dealers making an offer for your car. If you have been honest in your description and picture for the car you may get dealers or website’s competing to offer you the best price. Base your decision on the site or business and it is always a good idea to search online for reviews and see how the company makes payment.
The advice online is not to release or hand over your V5 registration form to any potential buyer until you receive the following:
2. Cheque that has cleared
3. Conformation of bank payment
My advice when selling your car is if the dealer is really interested and wants to buy it from you ask them to come to you.
This shows their transparency as a company and that they are committed to proceed with the deal it’s also a great time for them to give you their valuation face to face and you can always out your point across to them as online they may try to knock you down for minor wear and tear on the vehicle.
The conclusion is to do your research, contact a number of dealers and don’t rush in to any decision.
