Tips for Selling a
Vehicle Privately

Selling your car privately can be a daunting and time-consuming process – but is usually a more financially-rewarding approach than trading it in.


  • Have the vehicle professionally cleaned or detailed inside and out.
  • Create a listing at and ensure it includes:
    – As much information about the vehicle as you can;
    – Photos (as these are vital – provide at least twenty clear photos of the car both inside and out, including shots of the odometer and your service history record).
  • Screen all enquiries to avoid spending time on timewasters. Some good questions to ask potential buyers are:

– Are you ready to buy now?
– Do you have finance organised?
– Are you comfortable with the advertised price?
– Are you considering other cars?
– Would you buy my car if it’s as I’ve described in the ad?

  • Arrange for potential buyers to inspect your car at a time that’s convenient for you – a genuine buyer will accommodate your schedule.
  • Ask for a deposit to secure the vehicle if a buyer confirms they want to buy. Keep your advertising live until you’ve received all funds and the sale is complete (you can pause your listing if you’d prefer).
  • Never release the vehicle until you have cleared funds. Always ask for a bank cheque rather than a personal cheque.
  • If your vehicle is under finance, the buyer usually pays the finance provider directly, and any remaining funds go to the registered owner of the vehicle.
