Used Cars/Selling used cars


What method would Ray recommend for someone looking to SELL a used car? Dealership, auction, private sale or a cash-for-cars company?

Hi Elin,

In the UK - USA or Canada the process selling a valid vehicle will have the same answer PRIVATE is the way for top money.

1. A dealer will low-ball you otherwise can't make a profit for re-sale, but will offer top money in a trade, which mean pay what we want and you get what you want,,,lol

2. An Auction is a good place to sell a vehicle if you don't like going through the hassle dealing with buyers or what you trying to sell is a real lemon

3. Cash for Cars,,, Only if your plane is leaving in 2 hrs -

Elin, I don't have a clue what you want to sell so it's kind of hard for me to put you through the process with proper answers, I will suggest you look up and find the same vehicle model year and Km to get an idea what market value looks like, and then sell private.

Hope this answers some of your thoughts, if not please get back to me for further input

Have a Blessed day
