3 Fast Tips on How To Sell Your Car for the Most.Written by Graeme Sprigge
Tip 1 - Pick your time. If you can possibly help it, don't sell your car after Christmas, when no one has any money. Consider holiday periods: will people be in town or away. Sometimes this can work in your favour because if people are not at work they have more time to look for cars, and they are usually cashed up with nothing to do.
On reverse side, when buyers are busy working, they don't have time to do a lot of car shopping, which can make negotiating easier.
Additionally for this reason, if you get a buyer to come on a week-night, it is unlikely he can compare yours to other cars - which can sometimes work in your favour.
The Cheap Car Sources That Your Used Car Dealer Doesn’t Want You To Know AboutWritten by Steve Shannon
Wouldn’t it be nice to find car or truck that you want, and only pay a small fraction of what you would at a used car lot? Wouldn’t it be nice not to have to haggle with a used car salesman and have your intelligence continually insulted, just to “save” a couple hundred bucks? Have you ever wondered if there was some secret source where these guys get their vehicles and whether you could somehow buy from it, too?
The truth is - you can avoid a lot of expense and aggravation normally associated with buying a quality used car, truck or van by simply cutting out middle man. In other words, go to source.
There are several places where dealers can buy vehicles, but one of best are used car auctions. Some auctions require that buyer is an auto dealer, but others don’t. Some auctions are local, while others are online. Surprisingly, seized, repossessed or impounded vehicles are very accessible to general public for purchase. Usually, you will be able to find one or more of these auctions or sales very close to where you live.
The reason vehicles at these auctions and sales go so cheap is because it costs government or banking / lending institutions that hold them money to keep them stored. In some cases, institutions that are holding vehicles have already lost money on them and simply want to write them off of inventory. Don’t be thinking that all of these vehicles are just drivable junk, either. Many of these vehicles are modern models, and blemishes range from few to none.
