How to Sell My Car

Preparing to sell a car

Prepare your vehicle: Make sure the car is fully Valeted. Without doubt it will add value to your sale. If it has not been serviced recently, you can get it done for about £100. Also re-MOT the car if it is due to expire in the next 3 months or less. Finally, a cheap pair of new hub caps are great value for money in making a car look good for sale. Go to a car spares shop and you may spent £90 to 100 to wax/shine up your car externally, and to wash/dry/polish it in the inside. Your tyres will get a good wash too—and this will impress your potential customers. This investment will definitely be worth it—and you can incorporate this expense in your asking price (without telling the customer of course). Also, if there are minor blemishes you could use a Dent Man or a cosmetic repairer who will call at your home or work and do the necessary repairs to bring your car up to scratch . It will only take a minor fault to turn the buyer off.

Put your price slightly higher than what you expect—negotiate to get the deal that’s right for you. If you are not in a hurry to sell the car, and think that you deserve a certain price—wait. Use an independent source to determine the wholesale and retail values of your target vehicle. The most frequently used sources for this are, Glass Guide and Cap Black Book both have online applications where you can pay for a independent Valuation.
Once you have determined your vehicles value what happens next ?  what are your options ?  Well you have a few obviously, You could opt to sell your car privately where you will have the cost of the advert plus unless you are confident in dealing with the general public and having them visit your home it may not be the right choice for you,also if you did agree a deal then there is the payment part to transact where you will have to agree with the buyer a payment that is agreeable to both parties whether it be a bank transfer (the buyer may not do this until he has received the car)  Good old fashioned cash ( as long as you are confident taking large sums from a stranger ) or a bankers Draft ( Always ring the bank or building society to determine authenticity) and never accept a bank draft on a weekend or when the banks are closed or you may exchange your car for a piece of worthless paper

Do not let buyers test drive the car alone.

Be wary of email enquiries from people wishing to send you money without seeing the vehicle.

Watch out for fake bankers drafts.

Do not let the car go without cleared funds.

Car Auction
Selling at a car auction is straightforward. The car goes into a suitable sale (the auctioneers will advise you). If it sells, you receive a cheque for the sale price minus commission and entry fees.
If you don’t set a reserve price and there’s little interest, your car could make very little. If you set the reserve too high, the car may not sell; you’ve wasted time and your entry fee. Even if it does sell for above your reserve (or if you accept a lower ‘provisional’ bid), you’ll only get trade price. As well as these basic guidelines there are few auctions where private seller vehicles ever achieve reserve price ….. why is this ? well basically the trader is a cagey buyer and unless the car has got a ” Direct from Leasing company ” sticker on the windscreen it is unlikely to get the attention of the buyers at auction also be prepared to expect your car if not sold to come back with minor damage on it due to hundreds of people traipsing round it also it is not uncommon for bits of trim or radios etc to go missing , In my opinion a public auction should be the last resort for the private motorist

Part Exchange
Part exchanging your car can be a traumatic experiance to say the least, you want the best price you can get and the dealer wants to give you the least he can get away with, then you have to weigh up what you could get selling your car privately or to a specialist buyer, sometimes a specialist buyer like the ones found at www.webuycars.co.uk offer the best price and then armed with cash you can batter the dealer into giving you a propper discount on your new car

Specialist Buyers

Specialist car buyers are the first port of call if you are selling a car under 4 years old or under 50,000 miles, Dealers are willing to pay top cash prices for these cars and if your car is loaded with extras dealers will pay more then retail price because they usually have customers waiting for cars with high spec that will pay top dollar just to buy from a franchised dealer , listed below are some places to go to get the best deal

Audi
BMW
MINI
Mercedes
Jaguar
Ford

Car selling Tips

It’s no exaggeration to say that you can add hundreds of pounds to the value of your car or van by taking a few easy steps to prepare it for sale.

We’re not talking about merely running it through a car wash, although that would be better than nothing . A bucket, sponge, bottle of car shampoo and a few hours hard work will be far more effective at removing grime. Then use a good polish and dedicated wheel and tyre cleaning products to add some sparkle, and remember to finish off by cleaning the windscreens and windows inside and out

Be sure that the interior is spotless, too; remove all of your old belongings , empty all the ash trays and door pockets , vacuum the mats, carpets and boot and thoroughly dust the dashboard.Also remove any sign of smoking and dog hairs these are the two most important things to remember , people hate smoke and ash also the smell of dog is very hard to disguise , maybe book in for a professional valet if required

If you’re short of time or just can’t face the mess there are plenty of companies who can do this work for you, from a simple wash and wax to a full valet. Don’t be put off by costs either: £150 spent preparing an average family car will be a good investment, ensuring you maximise its value – and get an easier sale .

When it comes to where to sell you have a few options.

 

If you’re upgrading then a dealer trade-in is the stress-free solution, although you’ll get the lowest price.

Alternatively, you can advertise your car privately, paying for a spot in your local paper or on Autotrader.co.uk. First though, try placing a free advert in your local shop window or on www.pistonheads.com

Your third option is to sell through auction but be prepared for huge costs involved and also the time and effort in taking your car to a auction centre , also it could take up to 14 days to get paid .

But is there a right time to buy and sell a car? The old saw is that you should sell your sports car in the spring for the best price and a 4×4 in the autumn.

The figures seem to bear out that the only seasons you want to be considering a new car are the spring and autumnal equinoxes, although this has less to do with the tilt of the Earth’s axis and more to do with the registration plate changes. New registration figures show that more than 16 percent of new cars are registered in March with a slightly lower percentage in September.

That doesn’t tell the whole story, however. Cannier buyers and sellers can often winkle a good deal out of the season by planning their buying and selling around the calendar.

BCA agree deal to purchase Webuyanycar , it has been reported that British car Auctions have agreed to buy the online buying Websites of Webuyanycar , British car Auctions have been a disposal channel for webuyanycar after they have purchased the vehicles directly from members of the public so the acquisition does seem logical but what impact will this have on people wanting to sell their cars and the future prices they will receive ? usually when a takeover of this kind is made the purchaser tries to increase profits to claw back their significant investment We Buy Any Car have recently opened over 100 satellite centres close to every major town and city also www.webuycars.co.uk have launched their new system that puts car sellers in touch with local car buyers that will pay more than the automated price given by we buy any car, this can only be good news for the motorist as for a long time we buy any car have been the only nationwide solution for people selling their car in a quick stress free environment. What makes Webuycars different is they also represent every car maker with an independent website for selling a car, these websites are aimed at people who have cars 1 to 5 years old and low mileage, the logic behind this is that the seller gets introduced to a specialist buyer for their car, someone who will pay the very best price for that car without any hassle and giving the seller the comfort they are dealing with franchised dealers throughout the uk who are desperate to buy late low mileage cars but until now have not been able to connect to the sellers .

www.webuymini.co.uk is an example of this new facility putting professional buyers in touch with sellers of that make

Thats what they claim in their expensive TV advertisement , But at what price ?  Their are plenty of other options available if you are prepared to shop round and do a little research , We Buy any car are the pioneers of online car selling and value thousands of cars every week , its quick and simple as long as you are prepared to make an appointment and settle for the automated price you have been given , also read the small print because there can be quite a few administration charges attached to the offer , for example if you require paying the next day they make a charge , even though you have already given up your car

The largest of the internet car buying websites Webuyanycar.com is about to be sold to (BCA) British Car Auctions. The deal which has apparently been signed, is to be finalised soon. This would complete a chain throuout the motor trade as webuyanycar is fixed to buying cars from the public and sending them to auction to sell to the trade.

Webuyanycars profits have fallen since it opened in 2006. The Rochdale based company had a pre tax profit of around £5m in 2010 which fell to £3.4m in 2011. The owners were paid around £7.5m in dividends throughout 2011 which is an increase of £1.5m on the previous year despite profits and sales being down.

The company which is part of the Carcraft group also has around 20 branches throughout the US. Apparently this is not going to be part of the deal to Auction company (BCA).
