Selling your car can be tricky; you first have to find out how much it is worth before you can put a price on it. There’s also the question whether to place the ad on a free website or place an ad in the newspaper for a fee. And when someone comes out to look at it, they will have a lot of questions. Are you ready to answer them all? It is really tricky selling a car, but a few tricks can help make it a little easier. First, find out what your car is worth on kbb.org. This is the website where you can find your car’s Kelley Blue Book value. You can punch in how many miles your car has, how much damage it’s received, and whether or not it has been in an accident. Based on this, you can find a pretty close estimate to what your car is worth, and then have an idea what you can sell it for. A mechanic can also look over the car and give you a rough estimate as well. Second, you should place your ad in several different places at once. This will help your car be seen by more people, which will help it sell faster.
Preparing for the Questions
When someone wants to look at your vehicle and take it out for a test drive, they will have a lot of questions such as “Is this the original engine?” They will also ask technical questions that you may not know the answer to. Try to find out as much as you can about your vehicle before people come look at it. You can’t say “Buy my car” without giving people a good reason why they should buy your car.
When people are test driving it, let them turn on the radio, the air conditioning, pop open the hood, and look in the trunk. But be sure that you are there beside them. Selling your car doesn’t have to be hard; take some time to learn about your car first hand.
