If you’re looking to get the most money for your car, then it’s important to do some research and understand the best way of getting a sale. To help make things easier, we’ve put together a list of what works and what doesn’t. Keep reading to find out more and you’ll soon have a pile of cash waiting for you.

What doesn't work

Before we can get into what does work, let’s take a look at what doesn’t.

  • Private sales

    Going things alone brings with it many hassles that you’ll want to avoid. To start, you’ll need to create your own listing and come up with a monetary value for your ride. While this may sound simple in theory, it can involve lots of research and work. Then there’s the issue of taking photos and throwing a listing together with succinct writing. Unless you’re an experienced photographer, or a wordsmith, you may struggle with the above and your sale will suffer as a result. From there, you’ll need to organise inspections and deal with complete strangers which can be draining - and that’s provided they actually turn up. Finally, be prepared to haggle with prospective buyers. You won’t need to be a master salesman or saleswoman, but having some bargaining nouse and confidence within yourself will be required.

  • Dealerships

    The downside of taking your car to a dealership is that you’ll get a lot less money in return. Why is this the case? Because these companies charge a pretty penny in exchange for doing the leg work associated with a private sale. In other words, you’ll be paying (dearly) for convenience. They’ll take care of valuing your car, tidying it up, selling the vehicle and dealing with buyers. This can be a good move if you’re after a quick deal, but it’ll cost you in the long run and will definitely hurt your back pocket. It’s always best to weigh up your options and think critically before making a decision on who to go with.

  • What does work
