When it comes to selling your used car, one of the first things to consider is whether you should sell it online or trade it in to a dealership? And which of these options is the most efficient? These are all common questions every seller will ask themselves at the start of the process. Yet, it’s important to determine the best choice depending on how soon you want to sell your car and how much money you would like to make.
A dealership handles not only the selling of motor vehicles but also the buying. This means that a dealership is a certified business that can sell new or used cars at the market level. Now, this is where our Honda dealership comes in. Take a look below at the five advantages of selling your used car to a trusted dealership like ours.
Unlike selling privately online, selling your car through a dealership will save you a considerable amount of time and effort. What’s more, it’s far more convenient. Dealerships save you the hassle of selling online, taking photos of your vehicle, showing the vehicle, negotiating the price, and providing the safety certificate. If you want to sell your used car, all that’s required is to get it appraised, and voila! Your used car can be off your hands the same day.
After the lengthy process of advertising your car online, now comes the paperwork. Generally, a lot of people tend to lose or accidentally discard the documents needed to sell their car privately. Not only does this create more challenges for the seller, but this also adds even more time to the process. As a result, trading in your car with a dealership removes the complications of paperwork and logbooks, as the dealership takes care of this directly.
Dealerships eliminate the risk of being held accountable by a private buyer for car faults. As the dealership assumes the responsibility of your car once sold, any mechanical issues are no longer your problem to resolve. Regardless of the condition of your car, the fix-up fees will be covered by the dealership. Therefore, unlike with a private buyer, you won’t find yourself being called up for financial assistance in repairing the vehicle.
Especially with the uncertainty we are facing today, and the financial crisis’ many people are dealing with, it’s good to have a guarantee. When selling your car privately, there is always the risk you may not be able to make the sale. No one wants to spend weeks, or even months, trying to sell their used car. This is why opting to sell through a dealership, provides assurance you will be able to trade your car in with an immediate effect.
Online car valuations are a quick trick to help establish the weaknesses of a vehicle, whether the asking price can increase or decrease, and its mechanical guarantee. Most dealerships offer this service, hence why our Honda dealership offers free online car valuations, to make selling your car that little bit easier. In addition, dealerships will come with or be partnered with a pick up service, so you don’t even need to leave your front doorstep. It is important to note, not all dealerships will offer this added service, but you can still be certain to sell your car on the day you bring it to the dealership.
