Selling your Car

When selling your car, or any item for that matter, you always hope to get as much money back as you possibly can right? So if there were a few minor tweaks to be made to increase your return why risk losing out? Did you know that having a spare car key fob when selling your car you are more likely to get a sale? This is as it is common knowledge that paying for replacement car key fobs for a lost or stolen car key can be far more expensive than having a spare car key programmed in the first place.

Your Advert

Advertising when selling your car is your first, essential step to a successful sale.

There are many ways you can advertise, some free, others involving a cost.

Some of the most popular ways of advertising cars are:

  • ‘For sale’ signs in local shop windows
  • Car auction sites, such as eBay and eBid
  • A ‘for sale’ sign in one of your car’s windows
  • In your local newspaper’s classified ads section
  • Car-selling websites such as AutoTrader and Gumtree

Whichever option(s) you choose, your advertisement must by law describe the car accurately and include the following details:

  • Colour
  • Mileage
  • Condition
  • Your contact details
  • List of equipment/taxes
  • Full service history (or not)
  • The exact make and model
  • The year of manufacture and registration identifier (eg ‘09’ or ‘59’ plate for 2009

All in all it it best o be as up front and honest about your car as possible to avoid any awkward situtations.
