4 Reasons to Sell Your Car to The Faricy Boys

January 6th, 2017 by

A black and a red Jeep Wrangler Unlimited are climbing a hill in front of the Faricy Jeep Dealership in Colorado Springs.

The time has finally come to sell your car. The glory days shared between the two of you are long over, and as much as you yearn for their return, you can’t help but look forward to the next chapter in your life. That two door 1994 Chevy Camaro has served you well over the past few decades, but with more kiddos on the way, it’s time to begin the search for that perfect family fortress on wheels. As sad as you are to see your Chick Magnet under the command of another man, you can’t help but be proud to pass on its legacy to someone else. As you reminisce about the old times, it dawns on you – I need to sell my car now, but I’m not ready to buy a new one just yet…

Know Your Options

First of all, calm down. This exact situation arises more often than you might think, and plenty of Americans are able to sell their current cars without going out and buying a new one straight away. Now that you have calmed your nerves and subdued your inner type-A worry-wart, let’s move on to your options, because truth be told – you have many.

  • Sell it Yourself: You first option for getting rid of your current car, is to sell it privately. It won’t be easy, and you can bet that those Boy Scout popcorn selling skills that have been dormant for so long, will come in more than handy. The sellers landscape has changed quite a bit over the past twenty or so years, so be prepared to adapt to the new way of slinging merch out on the streets. If you have a full time job, consider quitting it, because selling your car is a full time job in and of itself. Okay, so don’t really quit your job, but get ready to put in a lot of time and effort if you want to sell your rusty companion on your own. Take to social media to spread the word, stick a sign in a few storefront windows, and be willing to spend more time than you would like getting stood up by some potential buyers, and getting low-ball offers from others. It’s a dog-eat-dog world out there, and the private car salesman isn’t the dog, but the leftover scraps that the two dogs leave behind after fighting over a piece of cheap meat. Don’t get me wrong, plenty of people successfully sell their car for what it’s worth, but it’s a lot more work than most are prepared to put forth.
  • Sell it to a Dealership: Before you say anything, I know that you need some time to grieve before you jump behind the wheel of another car. When I say that your next option is to sell your car to a dealership, I’m not talking about trading it in for a family-friendly replacement. Not all dealerships will offer to buy your car for cash, but there are a few gems out there that will. Typically, you can expect to get more for your car than you would by trading it in, but less than you would if you were to sell it yourself. The discrepancy in expected price for your car isn’t because a dealership that buys cars wants to rip you off, but rather is due to the fact that the dealership then takes on all of the responsibility and work of selling your car to a buyer. Those hours you would have otherwise spent marketing your car, responding to potential buyers, getting stood up by said potential buyers, and hopefully one day getting the amount of money you want for your car – are yours to spend as you please. The dealership that purchases your car from you ends up taking on all of the responsibility, making your life easy and carefree.
