How to sell your car online
Updated on December 02 2023
METRO MANILA, – Are you planning to upgrade to a new vehicle? Or are you strapped for cash at the moment?
Then why not sell your car online? It’s a lot easier than creating a classified ad in the newspaper. But before you post, here are some things you need to do first.
Inspect your vehicle
You may have kept your car running all these years, but everything in this world eventually deteriorates.
That shiny paintwork may be faded because of the elements and your interior may not be as inviting as it used to be. In addition, that clatter from the engine could be a sign of neglect.
That’s why it is very important to check and fix any problems before letting anyone see it. Additionally, clean areas that have accumulated a lot of dirt over the years.
Better yet, get your car professionally inspected. This allows you to address problems and make the sale a lot easier. Remember, a pristine car will be harder to haggle over.
Research the value of your car
If you bought your car for P2 million pesos a few years ago, don’t expect to sell it at the same price today.
Regardless of the brand or model, the value of cars usually depreciates after some time. This is because manufacturers improve their products all the time to beat their competitors, which means new technology that is not available in old models.
That makes older cars less appealing to consumers. By searching for your car’s current value on the Internet, you will be able to set your expectations and price.
View other listings
Go to your favorite social media platforms and see how other sellers are advertising their vehicles.
Read the description, look at the photos and see how people react to the ad. If you can see something that gets a lot of attention from potential buyers, try to incorporate these techniques for your ad.
You can also watch video tutorials online on how to sell your car so that you can get more ideas.
