When it you decide that “it’s time to sell my car in Melbourne”, you have plenty of options. From listing it privately, to selling it at an auction, and even trading it in.
All these options may sound great in theory, but they all come with their certain set of unique downsides. For example, when you say to yourself: “I want to sell my car online in Melbourne.” That may seem like a good idea at the time, but let’s have a closer look at this option.
Selling your car online is a big undertaking. Why? The reason for that being is because selling your old car over the internet will take up a lot of your time. More than likely you will have to list it on several sites, along with the thousands of other vehicles, print flyers and post them up all over town, list it on Facebook marketplace, and so on.
There will be a lot of “tire kickers” out there as well, meaning you will get several messages from people that seem interested only to find out that they never show up, or if they do show, they will offer a ridiculously low price or even worse, they will start finding issues with your pride and joy. This also means that you will lose valuable work or free time.
Even if you manage to sell your car online in Melbourne, you will have to get a road worthy certificate for the transfer to go through.
Overall, in order to sell your car online in Melbourne, you must have a lot of time and patience at your disposal.
Sell Your Car To a Dealer in Melbourne
Another option is to sell your car to a dealer in Melbourne. This may seem like the best option as it is the quickest, but as we all know, car dealers often offer a very low offer or low trade-in value. The reason for that is because they are looking to make as much profit as possible when buying or selling a vehicle.
They will take your car in and do an in-depth inspection of it. When that is done, they will inform you of all the “issues” they found with it. That’s their job, to offer as little as possible for your vehicle. And if you want to sell your vehicle to them instead of trading it in, you can be that the offer will be even lower. A lot of people are taken in by this option simply because it is the easiest, but this is a great way to lose out on a lot of money.
Sell Your Car Through a Car Auction in Melbourne
If you are a gambling type, and want to sell your car fast in Melbourne, you may put it in an auction. Let’s dive into this option a little deeper. The car auction market can be very volatile. There are a lot of factors that need to go right in order to get top dollar for your vehicle.
Is the auctioneer going to do his job properly?
Will the right buyer be there?
Will there be more than one interested party at the auction?
Will my car get damaged by someone during the inspection week?
If any of these things don’t go according to plan, you will more than likely end up selling your car under the market value. All these things have to line up just right in order to ensure you get the best amount price for your car. If just one of these factors do not go right, you can take a huge loss.
And let’s not forget about the auction fees which you will have to pay. Some auctions have fees as high at 30%!
