When writing the ad to sell your car, take into account where the ad will appear.
The following terms and abbreviations are commonly used in car advertisments.
Before placing your ad, do a little preparation so you are ready to field enquiries about the car and know what you want to tell prospective buyers.
Don’t crowd a prospective buyer - by all means sell the good points of the car but stand back and let them look the car over for themselves.
By this stage you should have a fairly good idea of what the car is worth.
Once you’ve found someone willing to buy the car, put the agreed deal in writing.
When selling your car, the recommended payment method is to go with the buyer to a bank branch to make an electronic transfer directly to your account.
Once you’ve sold the car and it has been delivered to its new owner you need to notify your insurer and cancel the insurance policy. Your insurer may provide you with a refund of the unused portion of your premium.
