Selling

The Car Consultant’s Selling Service

Selling your car privately will give you the best financial return.

The alternatives being to part-exchange at a dealership, followed by a car buying website, both options leaving you significantly out of pocket. The dealerships will offer you the trade or ‘book’ price from their valuation guides and the car buying sites will give you the same figure but will beat you down on price when appraising the car in person.

For Example...

  • Average price of used car in UK in 2018 - £12,775
  • Likely dealer part-exchange valuation - £10,225
  • Likely car buying website valuation - £9625
  • Selling your car privately will save you £2550-£3150

Selling your car privately however is often stressful, surprisingly time consuming and full of pitfalls. Use my service to avoid this and ensure you get the best financial return.

What are my options?

Option 1 - £295*

You leave me your car as a consignment, having agreed a pricing strategy for the car and are committed to selling it.

I then prepare the car including suitably detailed photos and create adverts online, entertain potential purchasers and get you a deal!

  • Your car will be cleaned inside and out
  • Photographs will be taken showing your car in the best light but not hiding any defects – I will advise how you can price your car according to its condition so a potential purchaser knows what they are getting
  • An advert will be created on the most appropriate platform i.e Autotrader, Classic Car website, Ebay
  • I will manage the selling process which can include taking phone calls and hosting viewings from prospective buyers
  • All paperwork will be organised and presented professionally
  • When offers are made I will negotiate on your behalf and when the car is sold I will help with all change of ownership paperwork required.

Option 2 - £195*

If you can’t be without your car, I come to you and prepare the car and take photo’s as per option 1.

I create an advert and list it online but put your contact details in the adverts so you entertain potential buyers and negotiate with them yourself.

  • Photographs will be taken showing your car in the best light but not hiding any defects – I will advise how you can price your car according to its condition so a potential purchaser knows what they are getting
