Great Tips to Sell Your Old Car For Cash in No Time

Great Tips to Sell Your Old Car For Cash in No Time

If you need to make a little money or need to make space on the drive, you have four main ways to sell your old car for cash in Brantford. That’s the subject of today’s post.


If you just want to sell and aren’t buying, you have plenty of options. Each has pros and cons but each will get the job done.


Your main options are:


  1. Sell your car privately
  2. Sell your car online
  3. Scrap the car
  4. Sell it to a dealership


Let’s take a quick look at each of your options.


Selling Your Car Privately

Selling your car privately is a primary way to dispose of your car. It isn’t without risk but it can get you a good price in a reasonable amount of time.


You can sell your old car for cash using word of mouth, classified ads, social media or other means.


The advantage of private sales is that you’ll get the most money for your car.


The disadvantage is that private sales are hard work, can involve a lot of time and effort and no little amount of risk.


Selling Your Car For Cash Online

You have two main ways to sell your car online. You could sell it privately using Craigslist, Facebook, AutoTrader and other websites like a private sale.


Or, you could use a car buying website, car supermarket or one of the many newer web services that offer to buy cars.


The advantage here is most of the work is done online and you retain control over much of the process.


The downside is the same as private sales for car listings. If you use a car buying service, they often do everything they can to reduce the offer for your car, which isn’t so good.


Scrap the Car

Only a small portion of cars need to be scrapped as there is a lot that can be done to rebuild and recondition them.


If you do have a worn out car or just want rid without selling privately, scrapping is the way to go. Some dealers will even come and collect the car from your drive.


The upside is that it requires minimal effort on your part.


The obvious downside is that you’ll get little, if anything for your old car.


Sell Your Car to a Dealership

If none of those sound appealing, you could sell your car to a dealership. It’s quick, easy and painless and results in you being paid a fair price direct into your bank.


We have done a lot of work to streamline the process so it’s fast, simple and involves the least paperwork possible. There is paperwork of course, but we do keep it sensible!


The advantage is that it requires minimal effort and happens in the comfort of a dealership.


The downside is that, while we offer more than ever, we can’t offer the same as you would get selling privately.


We may be biased, but we think the advantages far outweigh the disadvantages when you sell to a dealership!
