Sometimes people need to but aren’t sure how to sell a car quickly. Maybe they’ve had a second car blocking up the driveway for a while and are sick of the sight of it, or they just need to raise some cash. Whatever the reason, this can expose the seller to a lower-than-expected price, if the buyer picks up on the fact that he or she needs cash quickly.

Not only that, but advertisements take time to set up and cost you money, not to mention taking the time to ponder “where to sell my car quickly?”. But it needn’t be that way! Below are a few steps you can follow and a handy guide to how to sell your car without even advertising.

Firstly, it’s useful to follow a few simple pre-sale guidelines for selling a car quickly:

1. Spend a little time on making it look good

You will get a better price with just a little effort on the cosmetics of your car. You can either take it for a full detail or clean it yourself – but make sure you do a thorough job inside and out. A polish would be even better. Any prospective car buyer is bound to feel more attracted to a gleaming, clean vehicle than a shoddy, dirty 

2. Get the paperwork in order

Having the correct paperwork on hand ensures there are no hold-ups when the signatures are ready. You will need copies of your Driver’s Licence and Registration Certificate for a private vehicle. If you are selling a company car you also need a tax invoice, a copy of the ASIC Business Registration with ASIC, a copy of the Vendor’s Statement signed by a director and a copy of the Director’s Driver’s Licence.

3. Hunt around

Make sure you prepare and know the upper and lower limits of your car’s value. That way you can decide on a few benchmark figures that you are happy with and you don’t have to waste time pondering an offer. While online buying guides can be misleading (and certainly should not be used as the ‘gospel’) finding out what other people have received for similar vehicles as yours can help set expectations correctly and save time.

4. Settle on cash

Cash sales are quicker and easier, providing the buyer is reputable. Once the buyer has inspected the vehicle and made an offer, there is nothing to hold up the agreement providing the value meets your expectations and you have the paperwork in order. Professtional vehicle buyers like Cars Brisbane can help you sell your car quickly and pay cash on the spot for almost any vehicle.

Selling Your Car Without Advertisement

Most people looking to quickly sell a car will rush to create an online car sales listing, sit back and wait for the phone to ring.

Naturally if you don’t hear anything, you may start wondering if we’ve wasted time and money. And even if if you do get some inquiries it takes time to arrange meetings and negotiate – and there’s no guarantee that the other party will be interested after seeing your vehicle.

There is another way. If you’re online googling “Where to sell my car quickly”, you can offload it to an vehicle specialist for a good cash price without expending any time, energy, or money.

An established car sales specialists builds up a large network over the years. That’s why they can confidently offer competitive cash prices: they know the market and know exactly what they will be able to get for your car. Some specialists will also inspect your vehicle in person, using a qualified car mechanic. In this case you are more likely to get a more accurate price that reflects your vehicle’s worth, based on its real condition.
