Selling a Used SUV for Cash Just Got Easier!
Everywhere in the UK more people are opting to buy used cars as opposed to new ones. Communication between sellers and buyers has become much easier and consumers can now access information from multiple sources.
As a consumer looking to sell your used SUV, you can opt to scout for private buyers online or advertise your car on different online platforms. But you also have the option to sell to a dealership or junkyard online or offline.
Know the Value of Your SUV
The first obvious thing to do when selling your used car is to know its value. With Google being available, this sounds simple but many times people have messed up in this first step.
Don’t limit your search to dealership websites only. Use other reputable sources like NADA guide and others to compare prices.
Another common mistake when searching for prices is failure to prepare. You are expected to provide the model, make and mileage of your used USV and other options. Besides being honest about the description and true state of your vehicle, you should also have your concerns written as questions.
If you make use of the right sources, you will often be given a retail as well as a wholesale value of your SUV. The wholesale price is what many dealers will offer while the retail value is what you can expect from a private seller.
Preparing a Used SUV for Sale
After knowing the price of your used SUV, it’s prudent to take the next step of preparing it for sale. Get the paperwork ready in accordance to the rules in your state. If your car is usable, you may be required to have a title to transfer it to the buyer.
With private sales you can increase the value of your car by showing your maintenance records. An advantage to selling to a scrap yard online is that most of the paperwork will be done for you.
Dealer and Private Sale versus Scrapyard
Right from when you compare prices you notice that selling to a dealer or private sale has more advantages. However, this option is time-consuming and frenzied. If it’s not the paperwork giving you stress then it’s the advertisement process where you have to take some quality photos to showcase your car best, or the negotiation proces
