Got your eyes on a shiny new car? You may be wondering what to do with the old one. Luckily, there are lots of options out there to choose from, so you can get the most money for your old vehicle or get rid of it as quickly as possible.

Sell it to a scrapyard

While you may love your old car, if it’s beyond economical repair, you’re unlikely to find a buyer for it. However, you may be able to get some money back on it if you sell it for scrap. Consider contacting a vehicle dismantlers Weston-Super-Mare who can collect the car, take it apart, and make use of the spares. It’s good for the environment too, as nothing useful is wasted.

Sell the car yourself

You can also sell your car privately. Sometimes this can be simple and straightforward, but at times, it can take longer due to a slow market or because the car isn’t a popular model. But there are lots of places to sell your car privately, so the more places you list it the better. Try:

  • Auction sites
  • Classified sites
  • Local papers
  • Social media

Watch out for any fees associated with listings, as these can eat into your profit.

There are many ways to get rid of your old car, and you don’t have to part exchange at a dealership. The choice you make will depend on the condition of your car and whether it’s worth trying to sell privately, or whether you simply want to dispose of it as quickly as possible.
