Are all your options going to ask you to compromise or can you sell your car quickly, without any hassles, while getting the best amount for it?
Selling a used car can be a process and how efficient or time consuming that process is, depends on the way you choose to sell your car. But sometimes, time is not on your side and you want to sell your car quickly. You might be moving between cities, or simply require some emergency funds for your next big idea. In most cases, you’re required to compromise on either the price you are getting or the amount of time it takes to complete the entire process. We break these methods down, explaining the quirks associated with them all, before finally arriving on the best method to sell your car quickly.
1. Reduce the Price Of Your Car
One of the easiest ways to grab a second-hand car buyer's attention is by lowering the price of your vehicle. Get an estimate and then lower the price enough to get people hooked. You will have to post ads in online classifieds for prospective buyers to notice your car. However, do get ready to dispel queries about why you are selling your car below the market rate. Many second-hand buyers are quite suspicious about a deal that seems too good to be true because there is generally a catch.
While this method will get you an offer pretty quickly, you will have to manage the entire transfer process yourself. Paperwork at the RTO can be quite an inconvenience, in fact, it is one of the biggest reasons why people prefer selling their cars through a third party.
2. Sell to a Used Car Dealer
If your car has been maintained well and is in a proper running condition, you shouldn’t find it hard to get offers from multiple used car dealers. They will quickly arrange for a sale and also take care of transferring it at the RTO. Selling to a trusted dealer will also mean that your car won’t be misused in the interim transfer period.
However, while selling to a used car dealer, be prepared to receive an offer lower than the actual market value of your car. Used car dealers are experts at bringing down prices of cars while buying and ramping them up. After all, that is their job 24x7. These users are quite dominant and also form a nexus among themselves, so once you receive an offer from one dealer, you'll be hard-pressed to receive a better offer from other dealers in the area.
3. Sell to a Relative or a Friend
Another great option is selling to a relative or a friend. So you don’t have to do the rounds of the classifieds, trying to weed out the serious buyers among the whole horde of casual buyers who will bombard you with low bids, hoping you will break and sell your car at a low price. Plus, with a family member or friend, you can be assured that your car will not be misused in the interim transfer process.
The downside to this is that you will find it hard to negotiate freely. You might receive the payment in parts, instead of the whole amount up front.
4. Sell at the CarDekho Gaadi Store
All the options listed above have one downside or the other. So is there no way you can sell your car without incurring any of the above mentioned downfalls?
