We have put together some used car selling tips that will help make your car selling experience more pleasant. Even throughout the pandemic, 43% of all car sales in Canada took place in Ontario! There is a massive number of new and used cars being purchased.

 

This is your first time selling a used car, and you need to be cautious or you could end up leaving money on the table.

 

Car Valuation Basics

The first of our car selling tips is figuring out how much your car is actually worth. What motivated you to sell your used car? The used car market has exploded since the onset of Covid-19 and the microchip shortage.

 

You need to figure out what your car is worth, so you can price it accordingly. Without an accurate car valuation, you could be setting yourself up for disappointment.

 

How to Calculate an Asking Price

There are many conflicting opinions about the best way to establish a fair market value for your car. A very simple approach is to look for comparable vehicles on websites like Kelly Blue Book.

 

You need to take the prices you see on these websites with a pinch of salt, these prices are just to give you a ballpark.

 

How to Get Your Car for Sale Infront of Buyers

The majority of novice used car sellers will turn to social media. This is the last place you want to put your used car for sale.  Most of the people who use social media are not actively looking to buy used cars, there are professional platforms dedicated to selling used cars like Auto Trader.

 

Social media is also where scammers are constantly looking for opportunities. You can save yourself a ton of grief by avoiding social media.

 

Used Car Document Checklist

There are some documents you will need to have in place before you put the car up for sale. Do you have the lien release for the car? You should not try to sell a used car if there is an active lien. The lien release would have been mailed to you after the last payment was made on the car.

 

You will also need to provide the vehicle service records. This proves that the car was properly maintained and is necessary when trying to get the most money possible.

 

While on the topic of money, if you need to sell the used car fast and don’t have time to follow these suggestions you have options available.

 

The quickest way to sell your used car for quick cash is by taking your used car to a local car dealership. These dealerships are able to pay cash right away for the used car but they will need to perform an appraisal. This appraisal is going to let you know what the car is actually worth.
