The Best Way to Sell a Car in 2022

When looking to sell a car, most of us want to find the balance between the most profitable outcome, and the one involving the least time and hassle.

There are a number of options when it comes to selling a vehicle, here we look at the pros and cons of the most common ways people move their cars along.

 

Sell your car privately online

Most car owners who choose this route prefer to do so online. It’s a fairly straightforward process of registering with a popular car sales site, uploading your details and photos, and paying a few to advertise your vehicle.

Pros – Selling your car online usually means reaching a wider audience and more people in the market becoming aware that your vehicle is for sale.

Cons – Selling your car privately online leaves you exposed to tyre kickers, time wasters, hagglers, no-shows, and occasionally unscrupulous characters. If you do choose this route it is always best to arrange a viewing away from your home and in public. In a few cases, the person may come back due to a fault or perceived fault wanting a discount, return or refund.

  

Sell to Friends and Family

If you know someone close to you is looking for a car, they may be interested in yours.

Pros – Simple exchange and an increased likelihood that you will experience a smooth sale.

Cons – You are less likely to expect top dollar for your car if selling to someone close to you, and it’s often the case that you will be made aware of anything that goes wrong with the car for the duration of their ownership of the vehicle.

 

Part Exchange Your Car

One of the most common ways to dispose of your current vehicle is if you intend to purchase a new used car. If you are in the market for a newer car, part exchanging your current model is the fast and hassle-free way to move it along and access the money to help you buy your next vehicle.

Pros – A hassle-free way to get rid of your old car and put the money straight towards your next vehicle.

Cons – You may not get as much as you would if selling privately, but this should be balanced out with the hassle and time factors.

    This has been the best experience I have had when buying a car, the staff are very friendly and always answered questions. I reserved the car from over 100 miles away and went to test drive it, the car was then delivered to me which was perfect. The checks that this company do before delivering the car is amazing and very reliable, I opted for the life time warranty which is an amazing warranty when buying a luxury car. I would 100% recommend this company to anyone.

    Wonderful dealership, transaction was smooth and stress free from start to finish with the help of Estelle and Danny. We are delighted with the car, it was exactly as described and has super low mileage. Delivered for free in time for my daughters 21st birthday. Danny taxed it for us with no fuss. They even helped us keep the secret by writing 'hire car' on the keyring, so as not to raise suspicion. Perfect down to the very last detail. Thank you!

    Wonderful Dealership
  • Recently bought a new car and dealt with Radu who was fantastic. He was so helpful and kept me up-to-date and informed throughout the whole process. The delivery driver was also super friendly and would definitely recommend DCC to anyone.

    These guys are so good I’ve bought my last 8 cars from them for both my wife and I - don’t even bother to look anywhere else as I know I’ll get a great deal on my new car and trade-in with first class customer service. I’m so happy with them that I buy cars off the web without seeing them first knowing that everything will be great. Big shout out to Rich who’s the boss when it comes to a hassle free purchase - I had my new car on the drive in less than 4 hours today - where else can you get that level of service? Check out DCC!

    These Guys Are So Good
