Most second hand car owners have the perception that their pre owned car will be worth only slightly less than what they originally bought it for. However, car depreciation is one of the biggest factors which affect the value of a pre owned car, and this is something your car dealer will definitely take into account when you trade in car. In fact, South Africa’s entire second hand car market takes vehicle depreciation into account, when calculating the value of a pre owned car.
The difference is who can give you the best price for your pre owned car…
Let’s weigh-out your options.
1. Trade in Car at a Car Dealer
Just because you don’t have to trade in car at the same car dealer you plan to buy a new car, it does not mean you’ll get a mind-blowing car trade in value for your pre owned car. The mistake that many car sellers make is believing that car dealers provide amazing offers on a vehicle exchange. However, trading in a second hand car is not as seamless as it is perceived to be:
Rather than scoring a higher price, you’re actually receiving a significant discount on your new car purchase.
2. Privately Advertising Pre Owned Cars for Sale
Apart from the safety risks involved in marketing your pre owned car for sale, there are also a whole lot of haggling involved! Which, essentially, means that you’ll probably never go home with your the resale value of your car - it’s only human nature for second hand car buyers to enter the sale with some negotiating.
3. Car Auctions
If your pre owned car looks like a dime in selling condition, chances are, you’ll definitely score a deal if you decide to auction car for sale. This is mainly due to the rarity of finding a diamond in the rough - most pre owned cars at car auctions are either in barely running condition, or do not possess certification or warranty. But, the main question is, “Will it be the best price I can get for my pre owned car?”
For second hand car buyers, your pre owned car for sale will most likely get them more for their money. Ultimately - but, unfortunately - this means that the odds are in your driveway, as car auctions allow car buyers to easily yield a decent pre owned car for a very low price.
