A Simple Way to Sell your Car in Ontario [2022]

A Simple Way to Sell your Car in Ontario [2022]

Are you looking for a simple way to sell your used car? Then you are in the right place.


We are going to cover what steps you must take when trying to sell your used car and how to do it safely.


If you follow all of our suggestions, you should have no issues getting a fair price for your used car.


Is your used car safe to drive on the road?


What is the overall condition of your used car? Can it be safely and legally driven on the road, or does it require some work?


Most prospective used car buyers want a vehicle that can be driven without the need for any significant mechanical work being performed.


You can sell your used car “as is,” but the asking price is going to be considerably lower than what you could get if the car was “roadworthy.”


If you properly maintained the vehicle, it may only require some routine work to have it “safe for the road.”


This is only a question that a licensed mechanic can answer, so have your vehicle inspected before you put it up for sale.


What is the asking price for your used car?


Do you know how much money you want for your used car? If you are not sure what is a reasonable asking price, there are websites like Kelly Blue Book that can give you a ballpark pricing point.


When setting your asking price, you should use an average price as your starting point and work from there.


The reasoning behind this approach, if your asking price is too high, most prospective buyers will look around for a “better deal”.


If your asking price is too low, potential buyers may draw the conclusion there is something wrong with the vehicle; with the average asking price, you should be able to get multiple offers from potential buyers, which will help you get more money for your used car.


The importance of meeting with buyers in person


Something we cannot stress enough is the importance of meeting with prospective buyers in person.


During the peak of the pandemic, social distancing was a legitimate reason why you could not meet a buyer in person, but those restrictions are gone.


By meeting the buyer in person, you are less likely to be the victim of a scam.


The fastest way to sell your used car for cash


If you are looking for a faster way to sell your used car for cash, the fastest and safest is by selling your used car to a local car dealership.


The dealership is always looking to buy used cars and will offer you a fair price. Remember the dealership is going to resell your used car for a profit, so you will not get the full 100% value of your car, but you will get a competitive offer and paid right away.


If you don’t want to deal with the hassle of selling a used car on your own and want to get paid fast, the dealership route is by far your best option.
