Selling motors


Selling a vehicle can be a big step because it involves a lot of money. Here are some quick, simple tips that can help you sell successfully, but safely.
 
-  Always meet during the day, in a public place. If possible, take a friend with you.
 
-  If you can’t take someone with you, keep your phone on you, and let someone know where you’ll be.
 
-  The buyer will most likely want to take the car for a test drive. Go with them (this is where a friend would come in handy). Be sure to only hand over the keys once you're safely inside the car with the buyer.
 
-  If the buyer wants the car, agree terms of payment and transfer of documents before giving the buyer the car.
 
-  Be careful is someone messages you to buy the vehicle from abroad. There are greater risks when dealing with people you don’t meet in person. So try to avoid it.
