Best Way to Sell a Car

When it's finally time to get rid of your car, we know you want to use the best method possible to get the most out of it. After all, you spent a lot of money buying it, keeping it maintained, and repairing it as issues popped up over the years. 

However, finding the best method to sell your car can be a little complicated. Depending on the condition of your car, one method may be best for you, but a poor option for others. 

At ABCM Car Removal, we know all about selling used cars, and we want to help guide you through this tricky mess. 

Let's get started.

The Best Way To Sell Newer, Running Cars

If you have a car in great condition that still works, it pains us to say you shouldn't bring it to us.

Obviously, we'll take it if you really want, but you can get a better deal in a private person-to-person sale, or even by trading it in when you go to buy your next car from a dealership. 

You won't have any problems finding a private buyer with such a great car to offer, and dealers will likely give you a reasonable trade-in offer.

The Best Way To Sell An Old Car That Still Runs

If you have an old car that's still in decent condition, a private sale is probably your best choice. 

This is because you can take advantage of haggling to get the best deal for your car, and you shouldn't have to wait long for a buyer to show interest. 

You do need to watch out for a couple of things, though. 

First off, always perform a cash transaction when dealing with people you don't know or trust. By the time you figure out a stranger's check didn't clear, they could be halfway across Australia enjoying a free ride. 

However, you should also ensure that you're very upfront with the buyer, too.

Failing to disclose issues with the car, even if they're minor, might create problems for you later if the car breaks down right after the new owner starts using it. 

Another point to note is if the car is unregistered. You will need to inform the person about this, and unless you have your own property, test driving will not be an option.

There's an interpersonal factor involved in these person-to-person sales, and you have to navigate them fairly and transparently to ensure you and the buyer both get what you bargain for.

The Best Way To Sell Your Junker Or Unregistered Vehicle

If you have a car that's totaled from a wreck, doesn't run anymore, or you don't want to bother getting registered, an auto wrecker is your best choice, hands down. 

A wrecker that buys cars will pay you in cold, hard cash before they take the car, and they'll tow the car away professionally for free. This is a solid deal, and it's one of the only ways to get rid of a car that doesn't run. 

You won't get as much for your junker as you would selling it to a private buyer, but then again, private buyers don't usually want something they can't even use. 

Luckily, good auto wreckers, such as ABCM Car Removal, will pay you generously and give you the full recycling value of your car. So, you can at least get a sizable sum for it. Considering it is trash anyways, that's not such a bad deal at all.
