Here are 3 great tips on how to sell your car in the best way:
1. Valuation of car and choice of asking price
There are many ways to find out what a car is worth. You can ask a dealer how much he will give you for the car, or use a car price calculator online. However, you get the best answer to the question "How much is my car worth" by looking at the prices of other cars for sale. Take a look at the asking price for similar cars and compare the make, model, year, mileage, engine, gear type and equipment and also look at how long the cars have been for sale (tip: You can see how long the ad has been online when you
search used cars on Autouncle)

2. How long does it take to sell a car?
It requires patience. If you are a busy person, you may want to choose to sell the car to a dealer. You will get a lower price than if you would self stood for selling the car, but the advantage is that you get it sold on the spot. If you however have time to wait for the right buyer, you can get a greater price by selling the car yourself. But don't get your hopes too high if you ask for a very high price. It's relatively easy for the buyers to spot a very expensive buy and you risk getting no inquiries for your car.
Ask for a reasonable and competitive amount when you put your car for sale (a bit lower than the average)

3. Should I sell the car myself or should I go to a car dealer?
The answer to this question depends on your situation and your demands. The advantage to sell to a dealer is that the sale is quick and you can exchange your car for a new one. On the other hand, you can get more for the car if you are selling it directly, especially if you have an older model, with high mileage.
Sell your car yourself if it is more than 7 years old and has a lot of miles on bord.
