Buying a new car is one thing long documented to be a source of hassle, angst, emotion and stress.
Connecting with dealers, organising test-drives, and the all important price negotiation is not easy especially as most people will only ever do this every few years. As you know, at PriceMyCar, we can help you right here with up to date pricing information, dealer introductions and more.
However selling you car can be even worse! In most ways it's a lot harder - you're the seller, you're the one that has to take the initiative and do the heavy lifting. You'll need to prepare the car for sale, research the market to work our fair value, spend a fortune placing online ads and then wait for the calls to come in.
And then it feels like the only time the phone rings, it's another scammer, tyre-kicker or time waster.
The other option of course its to trade it in... however everybody knows that the wholesale trade-in value will be well less than the retail market value.
The third option is to use an independent car buyer - a business that specialises in buying cars from the retail public at a fair market value. You can't expect to get the same sort of price as you might get if you put in the hard yards and patiently took months to wait for that perfect end-user buyer. However for those that are time poor, don't have the inclination to deal with all the BS, it's a happy medium when looking to sell your car.
There are many companies out there offering this sort of service but our pick, for a company that's built on service and integrity is the aptly named CarBuyers.com.au. No nonsense, straight up valuation over the phone and aa simple swap for cash if you agree. You can connect with them directly and see how you go.
