How do I sell my used car?
There are so many factors to consider when selling your car. Some important questions you might want to ask yourself when planning to sell your car includes:
- How quickly do you want to sell your car?
- How long are you prepared to wait for the highest offer?
- How safe is it to meet up with random buyers?
- Do you have time to deal with timewasters?
- Would you trade-in your car to speed up the process?
What is the right price for my car?
It is always good to consider the current trade-in and retail values when deciding on a price when selling your car. Always leave room for negotiations, almost every potential buyer will try to get a better deal form you.
Used cars sold privately will in most cases sell for a price just above the trade-in value. It is also very important to be realistic and knowing these values before advertising your car.
What should I do if I owe more on my car than the current book value?
Trying to sell your car for the settlement price knowing that this settlement value exceeds the retail value will not be possible. Our advice would be to cut your losses before you fall even deeper into financial distress.
What paperwork am I required to give the buyer?
After reaching an agreement you will have to sort out the paperwork.
The buyer would require an invoice and the invoice would require the following information: Your name, address and contact number; the buyer’s name, address and contact number; a full description of the goods, registration number, engine number; chassis number; and of course the price of the car. You should also note any special terms of the transaction. Also, ensure that you obtain a copy of the buyer’s ID as well as proof of residential address.
Once the handover has been done and money has been successfully transferred into your bank account (Please confirm the payment with your bank) the buyer will receive:
- The Invoice
- The original registration certificate
- A transfer form (Yellow) obtainable from your local licensing office which must be signed by the seller.
In what time frame should the buyer transfer the car onto his name?
Always indicate that the buyer has 21 days to transfer the vehicle onto his name. Insist on the proof of the transfer to avoid any legal action or penalties.
