Sell Your Car in Sydney: Tips from Professionals

Sydney-siders are increasingly buying more and more cars to beat the commute from home to work. Homes are getting further away from work, and people have to travel a lot. This could be another reason for people to consider public-transport as the tougher route.

A lot of locals in Sydney talk about how they live far away from their workplace because of multiple reasons. A few of the reasons relate to the high cost of living in the City of Sydney.


When we think of all these cars that we are buying, do we ever think of how we will be getting rid of them? Are we all going to be able to sell our old cars in the first attempt?

Probably not.


Here are a few tips from professionals from the automobile industry who have literally been there, done that!

Let’s have a look at what these professionals have to say about selling a car


Trying to Sell a Car Online is a Joke

Most of these experts believe that selling a car online is a bad, bad idea. It seems convenient at first, but in no way is it better than selling it offline. Imagine throwing posters on people’s faces saying ‘You need this car? I’m selling it for $$$.” It might work, but it will take a loooong time. And if you’re living in Sydney, you definitely don’t have that much time, do you? We thought so. If you’re planning to go to Gumtree, don’t do it. You’re giving your contact details to everyone and it might be a problem later.

You won’t get paid as much as you’d think

You try to sell your car for cash thinking, “Oh, I’m definitely going to get half of what I bought this car for.” And then you start getting offers that are half of what you were expecting. Don’t fall for the trap! Of course, everyone wants to pay less for more, so don’t be disheartened and try to bargain within your limits.

The Unseen Issues

A buyer visits your vehicle and will suddenly come up with an issue that you never even thought you had with the car. If this happens, you will either lose that buyer or definitely lose some cash on the amount they offered.

So the advice is, get somebody to inspect your vehicle, and then get it fixed if it doesn’t cost too much. At the least, get it fixed enough to tell your buyer that they only need to get it fixed a little bit more.


You have to wait 9-12 weeks to sell a car and then comes the Paperwork

This is the unfortunate average amount of time that is taken by a Sydney sider to be able to sell their cars privately. It isn’t too much, yet a lot keeping in mind that you need to be actively involved in the process.

They also say that the paperwork won’t make anyone happy either.
