Many people are now beginning to realize that there is an easier way of selling their car than putting it on the used car market. This easier way comes in the form of a classified ad submitted to local newspaper or websites like gumtree and autotrader.com, which have become increasingly popular as people have been using these platforms for more than just selling their cars.
Advertise your car
To get the most out of this method of selling your car, you first need to advertise it. You want to advertise it in ways that are enticing, and if possible, inviting. A good place to start is on local outlets like craigslist and classifieds.com. The best way for you to attract potential buyers is by putting a photo of your car, along with as many details as possible about its features and condition. You should have both a full photo and an address included where people can contact you on the title page, or “lede,” of the ad. The latter will have: How much the buyer will pay for the vehicle (given all its features)
Make sure the car is worth it
This may seem obvious, but you really do need to be sure the car is worth what you are asking for. You might be able to easily sell your car if it’s in bad shape, but if it’s in good condition, it may not be worth as much as you are asking for. You can make a quick calculation using online pricing service such as Kelley Blue Book and Edmunds.com or “trade in” sites such as kbb.com and autotrader.com.
Place your ad in the right spot
You may have noticed that there are many different places to place a used car ad. You can place your ad in the “cars for sale” section of various magazines, on specialty used cars in noblesville sites, or on more industry-specific sites like autotrader.com and atcarlot.com. Auto trader is a good resource for you because it can sift through all of these listings and do the work for you by displaying your used vehicle alongside similar ones.
Get people interested
You can make it as easy as possible for people to get a hold of you by putting your phone number and email address at the top of ad. You should also include a contact form or email address on the bottom. Some sites will automatically include your email address, but don’t leave this out, as it’s important for people to be able to get in touch with you.
