It’s undeniable that now is currently the best time to adopt an electric car. The electric car industry is rapidly improving every day and there are tons of new features being introduced in newer models. This makes it even more tempting to get the latest models or look into offerings from another brand. But, is there a way to easily sell off your electric car in Malaysia?
Whether you’re upgrading to a new model or eager to explore a different brand, CARSOME is here to make the selling process as seamless as plugging in your electric car for a quick charge.
What are The Requirements to Sell Your Electric Car?
If you’re looking to sell your electric car to CARSOME, it’s essential to meet a few key criteria to ensure a smooth and successful process. Here are the requirements you need to consider:
- Spare key and Vehicle Ownership Certificate (VOC): You will have to provide the spare key and VOC for the electric car that you’re selling.
- Valid warranty: Your electric must be covered by a valid warranty, whether it’s a manufacturer’s warranty or an extended warranty, with a minimum of six months of validity.
- Insurance: Please verify that your electric has valid insurance coverage during the selling process to protect all parties involved.
- Mobile charger: When handing over your electric, you’ll be required to provide the mobile charger that originally came with the car. If the mobile charger is not included, there will be a RM3,000 reduction from the offered price.
In addition to all the above, keep your electric car in good condition, both in terms of its performance and appearance. Once all the requirements are complete, here’s how you can sell your electric car in Malaysia with CARSOME.
