3 Important Tips to Sell a Car Fast in Ontario

3 Important Tips to Sell a Car Fast in Ontario

Ontarians that want to sell a used car should proceed with haste; while the used car market is on fire right now, the global economy is headed towards a recession which could put a damper on demand for used cars.


However, there are some important things you will need to bear in mind when selling your used car, so stick around, and we will help you get top dollar for your used car.


Do you have the official used car sales kit?


In Ontario, when buying or selling a used car privately, you must use the official used car sales kit offered by the Government of Ontario.


This kit costs $20, and it will come to you via Canada Post. You cannot buy or sell a used car without the kit, so do not try to circumvent this legal requirement; it will only lead to more headaches down the road.


While you are waiting for the sales kit to come in the mail, you should also fish out the lien release the original lender would have sent to you when you paid off the car loan.


This lien release proves there are no liens on the car, which prevent the buyer from registering the vehicle in his/her name.


If you are not able to find the original lien release the lender sent to you, you can contact them and have a replacement issued.


Prospective buyers are not going to make a firm offer on the used car until they are sure there are no liens, so make this your top priority.


The best places to sell a car fast in Ontario


After you have sorted out the paperwork issues that come with selling a used car in Ontario, you need to pick the best places to advertise.


Fortunately, we have identified some of the best places in advance. You should consider listing your used car on platforms like AutoTrader and Kijiji Autos.


These platforms attract a large number of potential buyers from around Ontario and Canada on a monthly basis.


The buyers that come to these websites tend to be more legitimate than the buyers you would find on social media platforms like Facebook Marketplaces.


As a rule, you should only deal with prospective buyers in person, at least when it comes time to close the deal. If you come across a buyer that is not willing to meet you in person, you should not deal with them.


The quickest and simplest way to sell your used car for cash


There is a quicker and simpler way to sell your used car for cash, just bring the vehicle to your local car dealership and sell it to them.


The dealership will need to perform their own appraisal to determine what the car is worth in the current market; once the appraisal has been completed, the dealership will make an offer.


If you accept their offer, then you will leave the dealership with cash in hand and avoid all of the problems that come with trying to sell a used car on your own.
