Posted On October 5th, 2018

Used cars can be a challenge to sell, and getting the best value for the car can be tedious and tiring as you may have to deal with many buyers. But these four tips will help you get the best price for your used car.

Getting the Best Value for Your Used Car In Adelaide

Tip 1 – Don’t Spend Money on Costly Repairs

If you don’t have to go to the cost of repairs to the car’s engine that will increase the value of your car sell. Is there a way to get your car or truck sold without repairing the engine when it needs repairs? Yes, there is. SA Wreckers buys cars with engine damage, so we don’t take from the profit of the sale as you don’t have to repair the engine.

If you don’t have to go to the costs of repairs to the body of the car, then you increase the profits of the car sell. Again, SA Wreckers buys cars that need repairs to the body, so you don’t have the profits of the sell dipped into with costly repairs to the body of the car.

Tip 2 – Don’t Waste Money on Advertising

Honestly, it doesn’t make sense to advertise the car for sale on paid platforms that charge a fee or take a commission when the car is sold, when you have so many avenues where you can advertise the car for free. There are many excellent online platforms where you can advertise your car without spending a cent. If you don’t have to go to the cost of advertising the car for sale, which could be a few hundred dollars, then you get to pocket the entire amount made from the sale, without having to account for advertising expenses. With SA Wreckers, you have a buyer without advertising your car for sale. We are always interested in buying cars of all makes and conditions, so simply give us a call and we’ll make you a cash offer for your car in Adelaide.

Tip 3 – Only Meetup with Serious Buyers

Honestly, selling a car to a private buyer can be a lot of work. Many times, sellers find themselves meeting up with potential buyers day in and day out, but none of the meetings end in a sale. This is because there are many people out there who are just window-shopping for a car. These are not serious buyers. Don’t waste your time on them. Instead, when someone calls you for information about your car, try to get a feel for them. Are they genuinely interested? Or do they sound like they’re just passing the time till the right car shows up. If you don’t have to take the time to meet with non-serious buyers, you will end up saving time as well as money (fuel costs to meet with them). Again, with SA Wreckers, we’ll buy your car today. You have a ready buyer in us for your car – whatever the brand, whatever the model and whatever its condition.

Tip 4 – Save Money on Towing Fees and Other Expenses

Let’s get real. If your car is not in working condition, then you’re not going to get much for it. Most Auto Wreckers will pay you based on the price of the metals of the car (which they will recycle). But, if you spend money on having the car towed to the wrecking yard, you will end up with hardly anything left from the sale. A good option is to sell your damaged or scrap car to a wrecking business like SA Wreckers in Adelaide. We come to the locations of our customers to purchase and remove their vehicles at no cost to them. So, that means you get to enjoy a no-expense sale, and that’s the best option for a scrap or damaged car in Adelaide.
