Who should you sell your car to so that you can fetch the best price? In order to not get shortchanged when selling your vehicle, you’ll need to know the difference between offloading your car to a dealer or to a direct buyer. 

Selling a car to a general buyer

You’ll be able to negotiate a price more easily, or perhaps get a final sales figure closer to what you had in mind. But you’ll have to prepare all the documents on your own and also figure out a way to actually promote the sales listing.

As such, you may not be able to sell your car as quickly. Buyers may also not have the cash to pay a lump sum up front, and it can be difficult to follow up if there are problems down the line.
