Thinking of selling

Recommended Posts

Take a look on https://www.carandclassic.co.uk

 

There are one or two M535i for sale. A dealer in Cornwall is looking for £15k and another is for auction with a guide price of £3-6k. Both have dreadful ads. You could usefully spend some time on this site checking out ads, to see which ones work and which ones dont.

 

There are millions of very rich people in the UK. You wont sell a car to them by pitching the price to low, for these people there is as much status in paying decent money for a classic car as there is in owning it. What they want to see is a decent, detailed and open advert. You need to detail work carried out on the car and name the organisation who carried out the work. The buyer wants to see that those carrying out the work are reputable organisations. Remember buyers can check MOTs so they will see any problems listed, so you need to show that you have fixed these issues. Make your ownership narrative open, honest and with some humour. This is your only opportunity to connect with a potential buyer. Its you that they are buying, the cars just an added bonus!


Though black cars are popular with certain sections of society, they do put off others, so be prepared to be dissapointed. Dark and dingy cars are difficult to photograph, interiors in particular. The garden to the left of your car is a decent backdrop to photograph against and among other things shows the potential buyer that the car comes from a loving and caring home! You will be building trust.

 

If your car is rust free, neat and tidy, and without issues then pitch it between £15,000 and £20,000. Keep the numbers rounded.

Make sure that you are sure Gary, once it's gone it's gone, you probably won't get another like yours, not for the price you paid for it.

Definitely not I got given it in 1999
