You want to sell your car but you feel daunted just thinking about the process of selling it. And rightfully so. There are checks to be done to make sure your car is safe. It could mean spending a lot of money getting your car repaired to make it shiny and safe. Then, there’s the advertisements to put up, potential buyers to meet, tests to pass and forms to complete.
Selling it to a buyer yourself is just one way of selling your car. Another is to sell your car to a dealer. Here are some reasons why you might want to consider this option seriously.
Less Hassle with Paperwork
If you decide to sell your car to a dealer, this means the dealer is responsible for the paperwork involved. There are no handover forms or sales agreements for you to draft. No confusing forms to muddle through. Or technical jargon to decode. The onus of filling out all the paperwork involved in selling your car falls firmly on the dealership’s lap. No paperwork means more time on your hands. This leaves you feeling calm and relaxed with a mind free of paperwork clutter.
Selling a car can be a waiting game. Just because you’re ready to sell may not mean there are buyers who are ready to buy. Or you may see dozens of potential buyers before you make the sale. Sometimes, negotiations fall through at the last minute, leaving you to start the process all over again. Selling your car to a dealer means lots of time saved on your end. All you need to do is drive your car and the required documentation to the dealership.
Selling a car on your own means costs upfront. Time saved by selling your car through a dealer also means money saved. That alone may be music to your ears. And it’s a bonus that you don’t have to factor in repair costs for your car to meet safety standards. Or certificate costs to show that it’s safe for road use. You can save this money towards your next car, vacation or any other purchase you’ve been planning.
Selling to a reputable dealer means more peace of mind for you. Legal and contractual agreements mean that you’re not likely to get scammed with no safety net in place for you. With a reputation to maintain, car dealers are likely to keep you in the know. Best of all, you’re not leaving yourself open to complete strangers knowing the layout of your home. Or have your car stolen after a test drive.
It’s likely that you’re planning on buying a new car once you’ve sold your existing one. That means looking for private owners selling the models you want. That could also mean driving around from town to town spending more time and money without a guaranteed outcome. At a dealership, you’ll have a range of cars to choose from. What’s more, you can get a better deal by negotiating a good price for a car you want to buy in addition to the one you’re selling.
