Are you ready to sell your car, but unsure about the best way to sell it? You are not alone!
Now is a great time to sell your car! By now everyone has heard of the worldwide shortage of semiconductor chips, which has reduced the number of new vehicles produced. This shortage has increased the demand for used cars. Which has resulted in an increase in the price that used car consumers receive on their cars, trucks and SUVs.
You need to understand your options for selling your car before going to the dealership to buy a new car (if you can find one). Or maybe you just want to take advantage of the unusually high prices you can get for that used car, truck or SUV.
Know how much your car is worth.
First, know the value of your used car. The market changes weekly, sometimes daily. None of us know for sure when used car prices will drop or in 2022. The value of your vehicle will vary depending on the availability of that particular year, make and model. Do your research!
Look around for offers.
Then there are various online services, such as Autotrader.com, CarGurus.com, CarMax, Carvana, Cars.com, Vroom and Kelly Blue Book with which you immediately have an online offer and you never have to leave the house. Please be as detailed and accurate as possible about the condition of your vehicle. This way you avoid disappointment later when they come to your home and want to offer you less for your car because you forgot to tell them about that crack in your windshield or the bald tires.
You can also drive to your local dealers and see what they will offer you to buy your car. Dealers are short of inventory and may charge you a reasonable amount. However, keep in mind that they make money. They will have to buy your car at a price where they can then sell it on their used car lot or auction and still make a profit.
Consider if “For Sale by Owner” (FSBO) is for you.
Other ways to sell your car (but that take a little more time and patience) are by selling through Facebook Marketplace or listing it on Craigslist. You will have to work around potential buyers’ schemes and negotiate back and forth. Some people enjoy that process. Others prefer to avoid that process at all costs. Don’t forget to contact your family, friends and colleagues. They are often a good resource to spread the word for you if they are not interested themselves. You can usually get more money by selling it yourself, but you’ll need to sort out the paperwork and timing for getting their cashier’s check or cash to pay off the remaining balance on your car if you still owe it. Safety first! Make sure you meet the potential buyers in a safe environment.
There are also online sites that allow you to list your car for free or for a small fee. Something to consider if you are not in a rush to sell your vehicle and you will be reaching a wider audience of potential buyers.
Consider unusual buyers such as rental companies or corporations.
Did you know that several car rental companies are now buying cars? For example, Enterprise and Hertz are another online option for making you an instant online offer. They were hit hard during the pandemic and like many of us they were unable to buy new cars. There is a high demand for car rental for business trips all year round and especially during the summer for vacations.
