Why It Is Important To Know When To Sell Your Vehicle


The timing of selling a car is important as it relates to how much you can expect to receive for it. Knowing when to sell your car will mean you will have to pay attention to certain conditions such as what is happening in the pre-owned vehicle market and the overall physical condition of your car.

Tips On How To Decide The Time Is Right To Put Your Car On The Market

It is not unusual for motor vehicles to lose some of their value once they are driven out of the dealership however there are ways to limit this loss by selling your car at the perfect time.


  • Pay attention to the mileage


            Mileage is one of the most significant determinants of the value of a pre-owned car. The higher the mileage, the less you can expect to get for your vehicle. Another contributing reason is that a higher mileage may mean the vehicle is out of warranty or that major components will need replacing.


  • The year the car was manufactured


            The newer the model, the more a seller can expect to get for it. Buyers are more likely to snap up younger model vehicles as these will feature updated versions.


  • Listen out for expert advice


            Try to get a sense of what experts in the local car market have to say. Having studied the local second-hand car market, they are best placed to know what buyers are looking for.
