As Super Mario Bros music streams on your laptop or mobile phone, childhood memories of hours spent in the arcade flood in. You had fewer worries then, but adulting means you have bigger fish to fry as you decide what to do when it comes to the real-life game of selling your car.
The character options come up on your screen. You must weigh up the pros and cons of each contender. Don’t be fooled by shady personas that promise the world but fail to deliver. You need to choose the player with the best track record and the highest probability of success before you decide who to play the ‘selling your car’ game alongside.
It’s game on and here are your options:
Player #1 – Family discount Dave
It’s Sunday lunch at Mom’s house and she’s invited all your long-lost relatives for a traditional roast. The smell is enough to pack on the calories.
You make the mistake of mentioning your desire to sell your car at the packed-out dinner table. Guess what? Uncle Dave is the first to chip in his ‘two cents’:
“You’ve got the car I’m looking for!” he says. “Remember when I helped you out with that holiday job when you were a teenager in December 2010? I’m sure you can give me a good deal!”
Raise the red flag! 🚩
While Dave might know a thing or two about gatecrashing the tastiest Sunday meal, he knows very little about giving you the best deal on your car.
There’s little chance that his discount deal on your cherished wheels is going to do anything other than score you some brownie points. Don’t let him twist your arm by bringing up the favours of the past. Rather, opt for another player.
Player #2 – One offer Wanda
You pop into a dealership to see what they can offer you when out pops Wanda. Whoosing in with a strong presence and even stronger perfume, her trendy fashion sense and woke demeanour make her quite intimidating.
“I hear you’re selling your car!” she exclaims, in a know-it-all tone. “I can give you a really good offer.”
With no other comparison offers on the table and a pile of paperwork to complete, you wonder if this is your best option.
Stay in control of the game! Do not rush in and accept Wanda’s single offer.
Player #3 – Counter-offer Karen
Spotting a ‘Karen’ in the wild is no real challenge. Your binoculars quickly catch the circa 1969 Rod Stewart hairstyle before she releases the demanding call: “Can I speak to the manager?!”
Her commanding presence immediately gets your attention (and anyone else within earshot).
Counter-offer Karen (usually a private buyer) is super-determined to buy your car, but on her own terms. With buyers like this, there are bound to be after-sales issues (she’s likely to point out that ‘invisible’ scratch or that ‘non-existent’ noise). This is why selling your car privately is a sure risk.
The ‘Karen’s’ of this world have their lawyers on speed dial. And these are stresses you can do without in your life. You really don’t want to be responsible for after-sales repair costs and call backs.
At this stage you may be tempted to say “game over.” But with ‘Weelee man’ standing in the wings, you’re seriously about to become a winner!
