Why should you sell your car to a professional?

When you plan to sell your car, you can do it in two ways: either sell it directly to the buyer, or sell it to a professional car dealer. Let us see what are the pros and cons of each.

Selling your car directly to a buyer:

Pros

  • You get a great return on investment.
  • Older car models have a stronger chance of being sold privately.

Cons

  • Trading with a direct buyer will require more time, effort and hassle.
  • Looking for a buyer is very time consuming. The total process can take about six to eight weeks.
  • You’ll have to create advertisements and post them on different websites and monitor the responses.
  • You’ll have to do all the paperwork yourself.
  • Selling your car personally involves more risks of dealing with frauds.

Selling your car to a professional:

Pros

  • Selling your car to a dealer gives you the advantage of getting it sold quickly, thus getting the money in your hands much faster.
  • When you sell your car to a dealer, they are the ones who handle all the paper work.

Cons

  • The only drawback that you get from selling your car to a dealer is that you sell it at a comparatively lesser amount of money. But if you think about the time and money you

are spending to put up advertisements, and do all the paperwork, selling your car to a dealer saves you from a lot of hassle. If you think that your car is in a good condition, you can sell it to us at Underwood Wrecking, Brisbane.
