A Short Guide to Sell your Car Quickly in Canada

A Short Guide to Sell your Car Quickly in Canada

We are going to provide you with tips on how to sell your car quickly in Canada; these tips will help increase your chances of having a great experience, so please give them serious consideration. They will be simple to follow and are based on real-world experience.


Key paperwork you need to have in place


There are some documents you will need to prepare in order to sell your car quickly in Canada. Individuals who are living in Ontario will need to purchase the used car sales kit for $20 from the government and wait for it to come in the mail.


Another series of documents you will need to prepare is a lien release document issued by the lender who helped you finance the purchase of the car.


When you first bought the car, the lender would have registered a lien against the car, so you cannot sell the vehicle until the loan has been repaid and the lien discharged.


You should not attempt to sell the car until you have the lien release prepared; if you do not have it, you can reach out to the lender and request a copy.


This is most likely your first time trying to sell a used car, so you may not know about the benefit of having these documents prepared in advance.


The next thing you should consolidate is the service record of the vehicle. This documents all of the work done on the vehicle from the first oil change to the last bit of work performed before you put it up for sale.


Prospective buyers will want to see the vehicle's service record before making an offer, so having these documents prepared in advance will save you time.


Getting your car ready to sell quickly


Even though the vehicle is used, you need to make sure it looks as good as possible. Take the car for detailing as soon as you can.


This detailing is going to make your car look as good as possible, it will require modest upfront payment on your end, but it is worth it when you get a higher asking price for your car.


You should also try to take better-quality pictures and videos of your vehicle. Imagine you are looking to buy a car; would you want to make an offer on a car if you could not clearly see the vehicle? All of these little things will make a difference.


The quickest way to sell your used car


There is one main pain free way you can sell your car quickly in Canada if you do not want to go through the process of advertising it on your own.


You can bring your vehicle to a neighborhood dealership, and they will buy your car. The dealership would need to look over the car and do an appraisal; when the appraisal is over, the dealership is going to make a cash offer on the car. If you accept the offer, you get paid right away for the car.


This strategy works great, and you should give it serious thought if you want to get paid fast.
