Three Usual Pains of Selling Your Car Privately

Selling your car shouldn’t be a tormenting experience. Dealing with endless “potential buyers” in random locations, transactions and transfer procedures, standing in long queues are grievances that have been associated with the selling of a car.

That said, we can understand why most car owners would opt to take this up on their own; the motivation of being able to secure a higher price for your vehicle may seem like it’s worth the effort, especially with advertisements being free of charge in online marketplaces or car-listing websites.

What if there was a safer, faster, more convenient way of selling your car? What if you could get the best possible quote for your vehicle, have it inspected, sold and transacted all under one roof?

The following are the three main issues we feel, can be eradicated by selling your car, the Carsome way.

 

Time-Wasters

The Conventional Method

Possibly the most common occurrence car owners can relate to when selling their cars privately, whether online or through recommendations. In fact, anyone who has ever had a hand in e-commerce, whether it’s selling your dad’s vintage collections or homemade soap would know that it’s very common for potential buyers to go missing in action after countless texts exchanges questioning on the validity and particulars of the item on sale.

 

Worse, your advertisement could be sitting online for weeks, sometimes months with no solid offers and suitors; costing you time and money by maintaining a car you no longer want to own. Let’s not even forget about the risk of meeting strangers, in random locations and providing with test drives not knowing what the outcome would be.

 

The Carsome Way

Well it shouldn’t be that agonising. At Carsome, we’d happily assumed theses hassles for you; there will be no endless calls and texting involved and we most definitely would not go M.I.A on you. Simply fill in the request form on our website at Carsome.my to get a quote on the value of your car.

 

Thereon, upon accepting the offer, an appointment would be set for your vehicle to be inspected by one of our many experienced inspectors in the comforts of our own showroom before proceeding with financial transactions and ownership formalities in the safety of our own premises.

 

Haggling & Negotiations

 

The Conventional Method

Whether you’re meeting endless potential buyers in person or visiting multiple dealerships to acquire the best possible offer for your car, either ways, there’s no avoiding the inevitable – haggling for the best possible price for your car.

During such a process, it is not unusual that car owners are prone to exploitation; either by their urgency to sell or the lack of demand for their vehicle. As such, prices would be driven down unreasonably, prompting you to visit other dealerships for a “second opinion” which again costs time and money because not being sure if you’re offered a fair price for your car is a tough pill to swallow.

 

The Carsome Way

Instead of having to unwillingly accept the offers that do not justify your vehicle’s condition, we have a proprietary bidding system for our pool of more than 450 certified dealers. Upon opting for the online auction, car owners would be able to witness dealers participating in a 3-hour bidding process for your car where you’d be able to view the bidding LIVE in our effort to promote transparency.

 

Transactions & Procedures

The Conventional Method

As most of us have come to realise, the process of selling your car doesn’t end upon agreeing on a price. In fact, the hassle only begins then; with endless procedures and formalities to go through in the ownership transfer process which can sometimes take up to weeks to conclude.

Complications can arise anywhere form the point of waiting for your buyer to arrange a loan and for the bank to approve it, to setting up appointments for Puspakom inspections and possibly even dealing with Puspakom’s rejection over mechanical or cosmetic issues of the car.

Even if those were to go smoothly, subsequently queueing for hours on end, at the expense of your precious leaves, at the JPJ for a simple ownership transfer can be a frustrating ordeal.

 

The Carsome Way

All these inconveniences can all be handled and taken care of by the efficient administrators at Carsome in just 24 hours! Upon accepting the highest bid from the previously mentioned online auction, all the financial transactions and ownership transfers would take place in our premises where owners of the vehicle would be paid in full immediately in a fast, fair and free and even safe car-selling experience.
