Forget “For Sale” car window displays or private car sale ads in newspapers! The traditional way of selling a car privately has been long kicked out of date by the revolution of the Digital Age - the Internet.

Looking for a higher price ? At your inspection, you can choose “Option 1” to receive instant cash in hands; or if you’re looking for a greater price, select “Option 2” to advertise your car to dealers nationwide for 48-hours and get the best price directly from the market. Book An Inspection Now!

But, that doesn’t mean it’s any more convenient. Selling car privately on online classified, such as Gumtree South Africa, OLX and Craigslist, is:

A) Time-consuming - research the current market value of your car; prepare an attractive ad with photos; deal with endless phone calls; arranging viewings; handling test drives; haggling a good deal; handle all the documentation and issues.

B) Risky - meeting malicious people; fraud; scams; and theft.

Here are 5 handy tips on selling your used car privately.

  1. Know your car resale value. On, you can discover the market value of your car in seconds for free, just by selecting your car details.
