Section 1: Trading-In your Car

A vehicle’s ‘trade book value’ is a rough guide used to help determine the trade price of that specific car. The industry uses book value – only as a starting point – and not as a definitive reference. Book values:
  • Calculated using historical data collected from previous trade transactions.
  • Differ significantly from current market values.
  • Almost always significantly higher than market prices.

Section 2: Selling Privately

Safety and security are the biggest risks when selling your car privately. 1. Time consuming Dealing with the hassle of consistent calls and handling test drives. 2. Safety Meeting strangers can be risky. 3. Security of payments Placing yourself at risk of scams, fraud or even theft! 3. Paperwork All paperwork need to be completed accurately, in order to deregister your name off the car. This will protect you as the seller, if the buyer commits traffic offenses.

Section 3: Reconditioning Cost
