The Fastest Way to Sell a Car in Ontario [2022]

The Fastest Way to Sell a Car in Ontario [2022]

If you live in Ontario and want to sell your used car, these suggestions are going to show you the best way. There are some things you will need to do before you can hand over the keys and cash the check.


Key documents you need to have in place


There are some important documents that you must have in place before you can move forward with the sale of your used car.


In Ontario, an official sales kit must be purchased for $20; the Government has mandated that private buyers and sellers cannot complete a transaction without using this official kit, so you should order it right now.


Do not press your luck and try to sell the used car without the kit; it will not go through when the buyer tries to transfer ownership into their name.


You are not done; there is additional paperwork that you will need to prepare. Prospective buyers want to know if the car was properly maintained.


To determine this, prospective buyers will ask for the service record for the vehicle.


This will reflect the VIN, details of the work performed, and when it took place.


Don’t try to Photoshop receipts; buyers are sophisticated, and you do not want to have the reputation of someone who tries to hustle people.


Another important document that potential buyers will want to see is the lien release that you received when you made the final payment on the car loan.


Again, you will not be able to get a firm offer unless you can prove there are no liens against the vehicle; most buyers will do a CARFAX report, so do not try to be evasive; if you cannot find the lien release, then contact your lender and ask for a copy.


Prepping your vehicle for sale


Once you have all of the necessary paperwork in place, the next step is getting your vehicle ready to sell.


Bring your car to the car wash and clean it up, so it looks great. No one wants to buy a dirty car, do your level best at the car wash.


Now that the vehicle is shining, you can start taking pictures and videos of both the inside and exterior of the car.


Potential buyers are going to make their buying decision on the appearance of the vehicle, so do everything in your power to make it look amazing.


A faster, simpler way to sell your used car


There is a faster, simpler way to sell your used car, there are no sales kits required, and you can get paid right away.


To enjoy the benefits of this approach, you must head over to your local car dealership and sell the vehicle to them.


The dealership will first perform an appraisal to determine the current fair market value of the used car; based on their appraisal, they will make a cash offer for the used car.


If you accept the offer, they will give you cash right away. This is a no-fuss, hassle-free way to sell your used car, so why not give it a shot.
