Looking to part ways with your old motor? Whether you’re looking for a new model or looking for something a little bit bigger to accommodate you’re growing family, you’ll need to first sell your old car to create space on your driveway for the new wheels.
The average used car price is around £17,000 in the UK and whilst yours may be worth more or less than this, the process of selling your car remains the same. Before you begin selling your car, we recommend finding a suitable replacement beforehand to reduce the amount of time that you’re careless in this process.

How Can I Sell My Car Fast
So, if you’re ready to sell your car, you’ll want to do it fast, so you can get behind the wheel of your new vehicle as soon as possible. To help, we’ve put together a handy guide including the four ways you can sell your car fast. Read on to find out more.
1. Advertise in your local area
The chances are you won’t be able to compete with the cheaper prices that car dealerships offer their customers and so, you’ll have to find new ways to compete. One of them includes selling to people in your local area which makes the car buying process even more convenient for them.
The best way to do this is to put up posters around your neighborhood to attract people to the car. These should include details about the car, the price, and your contact details, so prospective buyers can get in touch with you.
2. Ask driving schools to hand out flyers to learner drivers
If you’re selling an old car that would be perfect for first-time buyers then asking driving schools to hand out flyers with your car’s details on it could be the perfect solution. We recommend trying the driving schools in your local areas, so the learner drivers can walk to view the car whilst they wait to pass their test.
3. Advertise online
Social media is a great place to get your car advertisement out to the world. With more than 57 million people on social media across the UK, you’re bound to reach someone that’s interested in the car.
You could also use Facebook Marketplace to advertise your car. This is more likely to have serious buyers on the lookout for a new motor.
4. Consider scrapping it
This will only be an option for those with extremely old cars or vehicles that have been written off. Scrapping cars actually raises a decent value for your car and is hassle-free meaning you can part ways with your car immediately and receive the money the same day.
