You want to sell your car. Your family has grown, you want to buy you another car, you don’t already so many miles or your car has many years already. Why is not important, the important thing is to recover the as much as possible the initial outlay in purchase. Selling a car is a complex task that involves many factors and is not taught in schools. Diariomotor we are going to offer 10 tips to sell your car used quickly, efficiently and conveniently. Stay with us.
1) sets a sensible price
The selling price of your car is the first data that enters through the eyes of the purchaser, plain and simple.
The first thing you should do is to probe the second-hand car market. A good way to do it is to find your car in the multitude of websites of second-hand market. Look for cars with the same engine, similar to get an idea of the Strip prices that moves the car age and mileage. The target price of your car also depends on your State, and what they can offer for their sale. We take a practical example, which is how thingslook better. I want to sell a Nissan 350Z.
A search reveals that their prices range between € 9,000 and 15,000 euros for models about 10 years of age. To higher mileage lower price, and it is evident that it will pay more for a car that has all the patches in the manual sealed. The mechanical modifications – thinking high performance sparkplugs or new wheels – impact of negative or positive form in its value, as well as the condition of the tyres or paint. Decide which is your price, and valued the rush you have to sell your car as a result.
It is also possible to use – free – online pricing tools to know the approximate priceof your car. A dealer or a sale can also price you the car, but don’t forget that they take into account your slice of the pie: its business model is to buy cheap and sell expensive.
2) should I allow bargaining on the price?
Decide whether or not you are good negotiator and acts accordingly. Remember that there are real artists of the negotiation.
A simple “urgent sale” at the announcement of the car gives a clear signal to the potential buyer: price is very negotiable and the seller will accept low offers because it is “despair”. It is important to decide if you admit your price negotiations. A non–negotiable price is less attractive to the buyer, and all prefer to receive even a small discount on the purchase price. However, a non–negotiable price can also be a good indicator of a fair price and transparency of the seller.
If you take bargaining, know firm in your limits and keep a cool head, but know justwith the buyer.
3) prepare the car for sale and don’t be stingy
A dirty car with worn tires and without the last ITV take back many potential buyers.
Before teaching a car to nobody, you must prepare it for sale. Don’t be stingy: deliver it with the last ITV, with tyres in good condition and a recent oil change. A general check-up in a workshop of confidence is not over. Think like the buyer will do it, gofor a car whose initial costs are low, a car that does not have to bring to the workshop no more to buy it and receive a four-figure Bill. Spend some money on to fine-tune the car, and will recover more than investment.
It is important to teach the car clean, and demonstrate that he has been well treatedduring your use. Pay a thorough cleaning of inside and outside, or do it yourself. Your buyer will thank you, and your Pocket also. It brings together all the documentation of the car, and provides bills of the last works in workshop that has received thecar. It shows that you‘ve worried about the car and you’ve treated him well. Can I wash the engine? Does not need to be pristine, ask a review but keep part of the usualdirt often accumulate.
The buyer does not suspect that you are trying to hide losses or defects.
4) where public advertisement? I go to a professional?
A transaction between individuals will leave you more money than a sale to a professional.
Excellent question. As particular, best thing to do is to publish the advertisement in the usual portals for selling cars on the Internet. Milanuncios.com is today the highest traffic and volume of ads, despite outdated its interface and design. Coches.NET or AutoScout are other popular options. A sale between individuals will leave you more money in general, but not descartes go to a professional. Especially in sales car complicated, if you need money urgently or not want to complicate your life.
5) write a proper announcement
He thinks as the buyer when you write your ad, tell him what you want to know and don’t run short.
If you want to take the bull by the horns, you need to write a good advertisement for your car. It should not be too short or too long, and most importantly, allow only questions the potential buyer. It is not only worth with that of “very careful, always in garage”. Speaks of mileage, di what oil have put you, talks about the treatment that you have given to the car and has a little car Dynamics: is comfortable or sporty? How is the response of the engine? Engages the reader, the reader may be that end up paying you several thousand dollars.
Don’t forget to include in the notice the reason for the sale of the car, it gives a signal to the buyer’s honesty and transparency, either because they have been small or you’ve simply infatuated a new car. It mentions the existence of invoices, the time that has to pass the ITV and most recent work, as for example that you’ve changed tires makes 5,000 kilometers or that you have the latest revision last a couple of months at the dealership. Again, think like the buyer.
The announcement must include clearly the preferred form of contact.
6) better image than a 1.000 words: get some nice pictures to the car
Let the photos speak if alone in the State of the car, and you not cuts to teach details of the cars. Do not do the photos to your car in the garage or parked between other cars. If you strive, you will be rewarded with a quick sale and without drama.
Many ads are hardly have photos or pictures of very poor quality. No need to have a professional camera to take some decent pictures to the car, having a smartphone is sufficient. You must include photos of each side of the car, the front and the back. A photo of the interior and another photo of the seats. The buyer wants to know in what state is the car, and if surprises – negative court – when it comes to see the car, as much as possible is that takes a good anger, and do not buy it you.
Includes pictures of the engine, the unique details of your car or the ITV cartoon. If you have changes or elements that you think that she increases its value, you cuts do not teach them: your newly changed tires, bar of turrets that you have installed or those rims as well polished as you left. Get the pictures in a well-lit room, day and without distractions. You don’t need to hire a professional photographer and a study, a large, empty parking lot is more than enough to not distract attention from the car.
Don’t the pictures with the car parked between other cars on the street, or burned with flash because you’ve done them in the garage. If you have the sealed book of reviews, take a photo. If you have two or three keys car, make them a photo. If it is a classic and preserves both manual and original documents, make them a photo. Put a little effort on your part, and always remember that a picture is worth a thousand words. Do not you tired of seeing ads with bad photos or which do not teach what you want to see?
7) responding honestly to buyer questions
You’ve already quoted you with a potential buyer in a public place, and you have already seen the car. It is time for your question. You must answer honestly and with answers clear to the purchaser. The buyer can make you questions of diverse cultures, from the use that you have given to the car so much more specific details, such as the brand of oil that you use. Questions give information to the purchaser about the level of care of the car and your knowledge of the same. Be honest, and if you don’t know an answer, admit it.
8) it allows to test the car, accept mechanical test
It allows the buyer to test car, their feelings are a key moment in the buying process.
There is nothing more cast back to a buyer that a negative to a mechanical test to the car. The simple refusal implies that you are hiding a defect, and thus should be performed by the buyer.
Convenid between both a workshop at a time that you come well. If you are an honest seller and know the mechanical condition of your car, a mechanical test not should worry the least. Once again, demonstrates transparency and an informed buyer, the best type of buyer.
9) do not hide information about the car: be transparent
You are responsible for 6 months of all hidden Vice that may have the car. Never lie or hide information.
Honesty when selling a car is important. Imagine that the car that you are selling has antifreeze in the oil, signal of imminent failure of cylinder head: a joke generated bills of several thousand euros.
Buyer must deliver the car to the buyer without hidden defects, charges or encumbrances. If the purchaser detects irregularities, you have up to 6 months to file a lawsuit to the buyer, which may need to be responsible for repairs or buy back the car.
More reason to deliver a car in good condition and be completely open with failures that may have the vehicle. The buyer is not entitled to claim failures or faults known in advance. In addition, if the buyer is smart – as I hope to be it – it will make you sign a simple contract of sale between individuals in which is explicit that you give the car without hidden defects, charges or encumbrances. As the saying goes, falls before a liar than a lame. Be honest and there will be no problems.
10) the ad removed when the car is sold
Deference to other buyers. You’ve already sold your car, so you don’t forget to withdraw the announcement of platforms where you have hung it. You will avoid to waste the time to other people and avoid that they make you lose time to you, you’ll have to answer phone calls or emails saying that “sorry, already is sold”. The effort to delete the ad is much lower in comparison. Everyone will appreciate it. That said, good luck on the sale of your car!
