So You Wanna Sell a Car Online, Huh?

Usually, people try to sell a car online out of financial interest. Maybe they've gotten lowball offers someplace. Maybe they've seen other sellers do well with like-vehicles. In all honesty, you might get lucky, too. But more times than not, we'll hear horror stories from our customers where the online buyer has either:

  • Called non-stop for help with repairs
  • Failed to register the vehicle, exposing them to legal liability
  • Returned to their homes for various (and sometimes creepy) reasons
  • Sued for damages

If you think you're protected by selling a car with "as-is" written in the bill of sale, guess again. Anyone can sue you for any reason. It's a right we all enjoy as Americans. Sure the burden of proof is on the plaintiff. But imagine having to go to court, missing work, having the legal action available in public records, and potentially having to pay out of pocket in the end! And in case you're wondering, no, you cannot skip a summons. This may result in a default judgment against you because you didn't appear. Then you automatically owe them whatever they're asking! For the customers we've seen suffer from all this, trying to sell a car online is just a waste.

But Please! Help Me Sell My Car!

Ok. So if you're going to go for it anyway, here are a few common best practices that you're going to want to implement:

  • Remove any personal effects from your vehicle and take about 20 clear pictures
  • Find your title
  • Make copies of any maintenance or inspection records that you might have
  • Describe your vehicle illustrating the good, the bad, and the ugly
  • Get legal help producing an appropriate bill of sale
  • Only show your vehicle if you feel safe
  • Make contact with the buyer before you show

Sell locally in Lexington, Kentucky. This will save you the added hardship of meeting a potential buyer someplace a little too far from home. Lead with good faith, and bring someone along for support if necessary.
