What to do if nobody wants to buy my car

Posted On : Feb-07-2012 | seen (3411) times | Article Word Count : 550 |

If I wanted to find someone who would like to buy my car despite its pitiful condition I would look for drivers who are very skilled mechanics. If you have these skills and a bit of free time what you can do instead of paying a fortune for a car in a great condition is to buy a junk car for peanuts and repair it by yourself.
A car is useful as long as it is operational. The owners of old, clunky cars know that all too well. Once, their cars were a great help to them, and now they are more of a burden rather than relief. Indeed, cars get old so quickly that the number of such drivers increase daily. If they miss their chance to sell their cars while they still can do that relatively easily, they get stuck with a junk car that nobody wants to buy. Such a car can be a serious drain on a home budget as not only the price of insurance goes up, due to the state of the insured vehicle, but also because of constant need of repairs. However, it is still possible to find a buyer. I only have to look for them a bit differently.

If I wanted to find someone who would like to buy my car despite its pitiful condition I would look for drivers who are very skilled mechanics. If you have these skills and a bit of free time what you can do instead of paying a fortune for a car in a great condition is to buy a junk car for peanuts and repair it by yourself. You will save a fortune as you will have to pay for the parts only. The actual work, which is the most expensive, is done by these people themselves so there is no reason why they should not do that kind of thing. That is why if I were stuck with a junk car I would look for them. The best place to do that is the Internet. Log on as many car-auction websites as you can and post your ad. When it comes to the ad itself, make sure to be honest. Do not try to hide or color anything up. Giving a complete list of problems, as well as all repairs and check-ups the car has undergone over the years of exploitation, will be a huge help for these people, and, what is more important for me, will help them in making the choice whether they want to buy my car.

However, if our car is barely moving, or even totaled, we may have a great difficulty in finding such a person. It is because there is a limit to when it is profitable to repair a car. Behind this threshold, the more profitable thing to do is to buy yourself a newer car. That is why there are literally no chances of us finding a buyer. Yet, we still can monetize our old clunker. Many companies are offering cash for cars, regardless of their condition. What they do is they scrape them and thanks to reusing and recycling, as well as government donations for getting rid of old cars, they make a profit. Therefore if my car was in a total ruin I would contact one of these firms and ask them to buy my car.

It may be that selling a car to someone else might be more profitable for us, however, if I have to choose between getting a small sum of money for getting rid of a burden, and getting stuck with a money sponge, I choose the first one.
