We hope to be able to provide you with a transparent perspective view of selling your car with us and why we believe we are one of the best options available to you when you are thinking about selling your car today.
There comes a time when you, as the owner of a car, feel that the ownership has run its race and comes to an end, you feel that it is time to move on and in doing so want to sell your car, quickly for the best price possible.
Now there are a few methods open to you when you come to sell your car and they all have their pros and cons.
Best Way To Sell My Car Today
If you think about this logically, there is no and cannot be ‘one’ method that all car owners should think about using when selling their car. Every car owner will be in a different position and will want to get their car sold at different speeds. We understand this and know that some people are prepared to wait to get the highest price possible for their car and to do so will list their car on places such as autotrader.co.uk.
By selling your car privately people may have to wait 6 to 8 weeks to sell their car and might be content in doing so, that’s why we are not aiming to compete with autotrader directly. But, we feel that having the option to get cash for your car almost instantly will become more desirable the longer a person has their car advertised on such a service and we feel we can close a market gap there.
The traditional method that has been used for decades for selling your second hand car will obviously be selling to a local car dealership. Local car dealers are just that ‘local’, they only know the prices of the car locally and will not be able to quickly draw information from a national database of car prices. The price you receive for selling your car to a local dealer will not utilise that information, and that is where we hope you are able to see the benefit of using our services as we use a national database of car valuations that feed into us.
Now for the auctions that are available to you, both a real physical auction and the online ones. Let’s look at a real auction first, when your car is on a auctioned at an auction house; there are a number of costs involved here, from the entrance fee, administration charges, selling fees and possible transportation costs. That alone will mean that the return that you receive will be a lot lower than compared to simply call us on 0330 900 1313 or filling our car valuation form for an instant valuation. And there can be ‘reserve fees’ applied if the car does not sell.
For an online auction, we will compare Ebaymotors with an option of selling the car directly to us for cash. If you choose to sell your car via Ebay, you may end up selling your car for more than you initially thought it would sell for but and here is a big but, it is time consuming to take several photos of your car, then descriptions of your car and there is the security issue – you will have to let strangers into your home and how will you know their cheque will not bounce, is their cash ‘real’ and who were you dealing with? All of these negative aspects can be avoided if you simply use our services and sell your car to us today.
We now feel you can see where car4.cash fits in the current secondhand car market as an online car buyer and when our services fit in your decision to sell your car – call us today for an instant valuation.
