Facebook, Craigslist, Kijijji, and other online sources have many advantages when it comes to selling off your vehicle, in this day and age. Convenience, and potentially getting more money for your car (than if you went through a dealership), are two big bonuses. Still, with these modern times, comes worries of being scammed, or harmed by some unknown stranger who might be pretending to be interested in your vehicle; yet have something underhanded in mind. These worries don’t mean you have to scrap the idea of privately selling your car online, it just means you have to take some extra steps to ensure safety. Here are some tips:
The whole ‘honesty is the best policy’ motto stands true, even when it comes to selling your car. It will save you time in the long run; as you will not have a long list of potential buyers come to with high-hopes, only to leave letdown. Additionally, providing as much information about the car, including photos, and any potential downfalls about the vehicle (i.e. dents) will prevent an interested buyer from trying to talk you down from of your original price. Being upfront gives you the upper hand throughout the entire deal.
