It takes a lot of your personal time and effort to sell your vehicle privately through Trademe, Facebook or other platforms.
The listing process can be confusing, and it often takes plenty of time to fill our accurately. That’s not to mention researching the current market rate for your vehicle, taking decent listing photos, and writing a caption that really sells your car.
Then, you have to take texts and calls from interested parties, who likely want to meet at inconvenient times and offer you offensively low prices, or may not show up at all. You’ll also need to trust a stranger to drive your vehicle, deal with lengthy negotiations, (and potentially repeat the process if they don’t want to go through with the sale)!
When you do sell, you’ll also need to be aware of the buyer coming back if something does go wrong with the car.
