Autotrader offers two ways to sell your used car: getting an Instant Cash Offer based on a calculated Kelley Blue Book value, or creating a listing to sell it yourself on the Autotrader site.

Massachusetts-based Car Gurus is a resource for those who want to buy or sell a vehicle, both new and used. Using the service is free for private sellers, and your listing can be seen by "over 20 million shoppers" each month. But, with a "C-" rating with the Better Business Bureau and complaints from sellers saying that their responses to buyers' inquiries never went through, Car Gurus might not offer the best possible experience when selling your vehicle, but their no-obligation price analysis tool could be helpful even if you list your car elsewhere.

Sell Cars

When the time comes to sell your car - maybe you're downsizing, or you'd like to get a better price for it than what you were offered by your local dealership - what's the best way to find a buyer In the past, most people had to rely on ads in the newspaper or even posting a sign in the window of the vehicle itself. Of course, these methods limited sellers to a small number of prospective buyers.

In today's market, the obvious choice for selling a vehicle is by using the Internet. It's not uncommon for buyers to travel long distances, even to other states, if it means getting the vehicle with the features and price they're looking for. In order to reach the widest number of people, choosing the right online service is essential to selling your used car quickly and for a fair price.

How do you know which website will provide the best experience for you as a seller Consider these four criteria:

  • Visibility. How many cars are typically listed on the site Will your vehicle be lost among many others, or are there so few cars listed that the site doesn't get enough visitors Is your listing shown only to dealerships, or will private buyers also be able to find your vehicle
  • Cost. Does the site charge you a fee for using their service If so, is it a flat fee or a percentage of the final sales price of the vehicle
  • Reputability. Does the service have a solid reputation as a business Are previous sellers happy with the results of using the site
  • Extra Services. Can the site connect you with resources for offering inspections for prospective buyers, tools to estimate your car's value, or any other helpful features

Whichever site you choose, you'll want to do everything possible to make your car appealing to its future owner. Make sure to clean the exterior and interior: vacuum the floor mats and between the seats, remove any bumper stickers if it can be done without damaging the paint, and consider adding an air freshener to give the car a pleasant smell. Also, as with any sales transaction that begins online, take the appropriate safety precautions to protect yourself; some people choose to meet in a well-lit parking lot at a busy supermarket or even outside of a local police station, to give both buyer and seller some extra peace of mind. has reviewed and ranked the best sites for selling cars available today. We hope these reviews help you find the right buyer and sell your car right away!
