The time comes for everyone when they have to sell their car. For financial gain, the need for a more reliable vehicle or a different
auto catches your eye just right. Whatever the motivation behind selling your car, do some research before pasting the "For Sale" sign in
the window. Knowing what is in your possession will ensure you don't get taken for a ride when selling.
At the very least, do some research at Galves.com. This will give you fair market value of the car for sale, and will get you started at an
asking price. Let's face it; every car for sale is not worth a percentage of the nation's gross national product. Be honest in your evaluation
of the car and list all options it is equipped with. Find the high end value and the low end, and set the price somewhere in the middle. If the
buyer has done their homework, there should be no surprises as to the asking price of the car.
Very carefully screen your visitors if arranging a test drive. If a dishonest person gets a hold of the auto, your car's category will quickly
change from a car for sale to a stolen vehicle report. If at all cost, never let a person take the car for a test drive alone. Go with the person
if there is any doubt. Everyone has a horror story about a stolen vehicle. Don't add to the list. Keep the auto fully insured until you sell it,
and make sure that everyone who drives it is properly licensed.
Selling your car to a friend or co-worker may seem like a good idea at the time, but a used car transaction between friends has turned a relationship
sour many times. Unless both of you understand the terms of the car for sale, this could be a bigger problem for both parties involved. Most friendships
can handle a business deal gone bad, but there are the few ones that won't. For most people, a friendship is not worth risking.
Last, but not least, be honest when selling your car. You can't speak for the other guy, but if you are honest and truthful, nine times out of ten, the
buyer will be also. They might even remember you when your next car comes up for sale and become a repeat customer. If you sell more than a few cars a
year, word of mouth advertising is one of the best and worst ways of advertising. Be on the good end of this deal.
Selling your car should not be a big hassle in this day and age. This happens many times a day all across the nation. A little effort is required on your
part, but done the right way, both the seller and the buyer will have good results.
