Buying and selling old cars has become much easier thanks to the Internet. Instead of being limited to buyers and sellers in your region, you have access to the entire country. Whether you are dealing with antique cars, classic cars, or simply a reliable used vehicle, the Internet has made the process faster and easier than ever.
Your first step is to take several high-quality pictures. Online classified ads let you post several pictures, depending on the exact service. Make sure your photos show the old car for sale in its best light, both literally and figuratively. You might also want to take close-up pictures of any damage to the vehicle. Although you don’t have to post the pictures, you will be ready if a potential buyers asks for more information about the damage, which you of course have already disclosed in the ad. If you attempt to hide any problems, this just wastes everyone’s time and leads to unsatisfied customers.
Next, research what comparable old cars for sale are bringing, both locally and nationally. You can obtain blue book values online, but if have a specialty car, this might not accurately reflect your car’s value. Instead, browse the car sale web sites to find comparison prices, so you know how to price your car according to the current market.
One advantage of selling your old car yourself is that you will generally get a much higher price than with a trade-in. You do have to field phone calls and test drives, but the payoff is usually worth the extra time. With the wide selection of online sites available, you might even consider listing your old classic car for sale with several at once. Some charge a flat fee for the listing, while others only charge once the car sells.
Another alternative is to sell your old drag car for sale through a broker. With this option, you can place your car on their lot and they will handle all the transactions and test drives, in exchange for a percentage of the sale. You will have the benefit of more customers than you might receive with an advertisement and fewer hassles, while still getting more money with a trade-in.
