How Do I sell My Car for Cash?
Selling a car is something that many people don’t have a whole lot of experience doing. While most people have probably bought a car before and some people are actually quite good at it, selling a car is often quite different. There are so many different variables out there and everyone is looking for a bargain. Do you trade it in at the dealership for a new car? Do you sell it directly to the buyer? Do you use a broker?
All of those are pretty common ideas, but they just aren’t quite as fast or convenient as selling your car through SellYourCarFast.com.au. Let’s take a look at some of the common problems people have when trying to sell their cars, and how SellYourCarFast.com.au can help to make those problems not sting quite so much.
We hear many people say things like “I only want to sell my car for cash” or “trade in values are too low, I want to keep the sale private”. Those are both perfectly normal feelings to have, but it does mean that the sale process is likely to require a bit more effort from you.
Another problem with selling your car for cash, is that people paying in cash often feel like all the bargaining power is in their corner. How many times have you had a friend tell a story where they found something for sale in the paper, called the person up to meet and eventually bought what they were looking for at a greatly reduced price, because they paid in cash? While this works out great for the buyer, it is not ideal for the seller, even if they do get temporarily blinded into saying “yes” once all that cash is waved around in their face.
Also a common problem that we hear from people is along the lines of “I asked my friend to help me sell my car for cash, but he never found me a buyer. I even offered to pay him a commission!” While we are sure your friend had the best intentions in mind, he is probably not a car dealer and simply doesn’t have the types of connections to people looking for a used car, that will help yours sell quickly. While asking a friend for help can be great, it can also create bad feelings if they don’t find someone to buy your car, or if they feel like they did a lot of work for nothing.
So if selling your car for cash is your main goal, you still have a couple of options. You can list it in the paper, on the internet or put it out on the street with a for sale sign and hope you find a buyer. Before doing that though, you should read our other article about how to get your car into sale-ready condition (link). There are a lot of small, simple things that can be done to your car that will increase the speed in which it sells and the price in which it sells for.
