Should I sell my car privately

Selling your car privately can be a long and arduous task

Selling your car privately may seem like a quick and simple solution to offloading your vehicle to a local buyer. However, as most sellers quickly find out, the process can be long, complicated and frustrating.

Firstly, there are often costs involved if you wish to advertise the car for sale, be it in local newspapers or with online car markets/exchanges. Not only does this take a bite out of the money you’d receive from the sale, but there’s also no guarantee of sale, potentially leaving you out of pocket and no closer to selling your car.

Selling a car through part-exchange

Selling your car via part exchange can often result in a loss of value

Part-exchanging a car can understandably look like a great way to offload your previous vehicle during the process of purchasing a new one, but much like the private sale, there are downsides to selling your car via part-exchange.

Firstly, it’s common for car dealers to offer you a less-than-fair price for your old car during the part exchange process. The result is that the quote value is often less than you would receive when selling the car via other means. This is particularly true if you’re selling a car from a different manufacturer to a branded dealership, for example, part-exchanging a MINI at a Ford showroom. So finding your ideal next car and part-exchanging your last model could result in you losing a significant value in the exchange.

You may not know that the value of a car can fluctuate throughout the year. While you’re generally better off selling as soon as possible to avoid car value depreciation based on age and usage, you may be able to get a better price for your car if you take advantage of seasonal price increases.

For example, sports cars and convertibles are often higher in demand on the approach to, and throughout Summer; conversely, all-weather vehicles such as 4x4s are more popular during winter months, and often fetch a better price at resale.

Holding out to make a sale in these cases could be beneficial but it’s also important to recognise that waiting too long could reduce the overall value of your car even further. Firstly, if you continue to use the vehicle excessively during the extra time you wait to sell, running up the mileage or increasing ‘wear and tear’ on the car, it will likely be worth less to the next owner.

Secondly, the annual ‘plate changes’ can also affect the value of a car, as the vehicle becomes a year older following the release of the updated plates. Be sure to look up when your car’s registration plates will become a year older, and opt to sell before then if possible so you can sell your car at its current age.
