How much can I sell my car for?
Selling your car on Kijiji Autos is easy. Remember that most buyers are filtering their searches by price, which makes this the most important factor in your car-sales experience. That said, it is important to get the current valuation or market value of your car before putting down an asking price. With Kijiji Autos search tools, you will easily find one or more car models similar to yours, which will give you a very good idea of the value of your vehicle.
Find the right balance between a fair price and a good deal, and you should be able to attract the right buyer. Here are 7 tips on setting the right asking price on Kijiji Autos.
What do I need to sell my car?
As interested buyers will contact you directly, be prepared to have all the necessary legal documents to ensure the process goes smoothly.
While some regulations may vary between provinces in Canada, one of the common factors you’ll find is requiring valid mechanical inspection information. Ensure you have all the documents of the vehicle’s past inspection(s) (if available) to give to the buyer. To reassure potential buyers, you can easily order a CARFAX report, including important information about your car history. You can find more information and access CARFAX Canada FAQs by clicking here.
For every province in Canada, you should verify that the VIN on the vehicle and your permits match. Some buyers may ask for it, and it could also be provided in the ad to easily generate the listing and build buyers’ trust.
To close a private sale, a Transfer of Ownership will be needed and required by the buyer to register the car. The two parties must also sign the bill of sale describing the car’s year, make, model, VIN and purchased price. Since guidelines for vehicle transfer of ownership can slightly differ, we recommend you refer to your province’s government agency website.
It’s all in the details
Next, it’s time to identify necessary information about your car. Remember to input its VIN and kilometre in the seller tool at the top of this page. It is common knowledge that within its first year, a vehicle’s value drops by 30%. And while in subsequent years the decline is less extreme, there are still a few things you should try to avoid. For example, if your vehicle has been overused and driven tens of thousands of kilometers every year, it will lose its value faster. Consider these factors when inputting your data.
