How to Sell your Car

The quickest way to find yourself cruising down Bismarck streets in a new Buick or GMC car, truck, or SUV is to get rid of your old car. If you’re wondering how to sell your car, or how to trade in a car at a dealership like Ryan Buick GMC, you’ve come to the right place. Our experts detail the in-and-outs of both options to save you some time researching.

Selling vs. Trading

When you want to buy a car, there are benefits to both selling and trading in your old vehicle. (An emotional experience, we know—it’s hard to let go of an automobile friend.) Even though the New Town area is sizable, finding the right buyer isn’t always easy.

If you want to sell your car privately, you need to…

  • Research the worth of your vehicle
  • Set the price low enough to be appealing to customers yet high enough that you make a profit
  • Wait long enough to find a buyer actually willing to pay that price

After all is said and done, you might be surprised by how many hurdles you encountered. What if the customer wants to haggle? What if no one wants your car? What if you have to expand your search beyond the Bottineau area? Theoretically selling your car is a nice thought, but the reality can sometimes be downright demoralizing.
