I want to sell my Used Luxury Car – How to go about it

As you’re reading this article, you’ve likely come to the decision that “I want to sell my used luxury car”, and are looking for the right channel to sell your car safely, quickly and at the best cash price. In our previous Blog, we highlighted the most resellable used cars in SA right now, that command the highest resale prices. Most luxury used cars, when kept in great condition and at low mileage, will quickly find a keen buyer in the affluent market. Many of the established luxury car brands such as Ferrari, Porsche, Maserati and Audi  are now firmly established in South Africa. Combine this with an increasing demand for fine craftsmanship and high-end features from a growing elite and there’s never been a better time to sell your used luxury car at a great price.

Finding the right Buyer

The process of selling your used luxury car is similar to selling any other type of vehicle. What is instantly apparent though, is that your market for potential buyers is much smaller. Luxury cars are associated with prestige and command high prices. While many people will marvel and aspire to own your exotic vehicle, finding a buyer with the finances and the interest in purchasing your used car can be a mix of luck and clever marketing.

Navigating the threat of Online Scams when selling your Used Luxury Car

The biggest pitfall of selling your used luxury car online as a private sale is the inevitable pool of scam artists pulling every trick and fake email in the book to try to take advantage of you and your prized asset.
