TIPS FOR SELLING A CAR

Preparing Your Vehicle for Sale

It is sometimes in the seller's interest to trade in a "bomb" through a dealer rather than sell it privately.

Used car values have dropped generally over the past couple of years and in many cases, the cost of making a good, older car roadworthy, may be as much as you can get from selling it privately. In this case, it may be better to simply get the car off your hands through the dealer rather than try to sell it yourself. On the other hand, if you have a really good, well-maintained older car which could command a premium price, you will probably fare better by having it detailed and getting a roadworthy or current MOT certificate and then placing an advertisement in the paper or online.

Do your homework first by looking up representative prices of similar models advertised on this site or by purchasing a copy of your local Trading Post publication, then see how much different dealers offer you before making the decision.


If the dealer is smart, they will get you to drive the new vehicle first,
before giving you a price on your old car.

They know that after you have driven the later model, your own
(often inflated) value of the vehicle that was once your pride and joy, will plummet !
