How Much Can I Sell My Car For?

How much can I sell my car for? That's a question that all car owners think about when selling their used car in Singapore. Naturally, fetching a good price and receiving the highest offers for your car in the car market is important - which means that choosing the best time to sell your car amid certificate of entitlement (COE) prices, avoiding hidden fees, and managing your car's depreciation is important. Here are some factors that can help you understand how much you can sell your car for. Alternatively, you can request for a FREE Quote right here.

Selling Direct vs Consignment

A huge factor in determining how much you can sell your car for, actually depends on your selling timeline. If you are in a hurry to sell your vehicle, perhaps because you have already committed to another vehicle purchase, then selling direct to a car dealer is the best solution as they will be able to provide you with an upfront quote for your vehicle. In our case, we are usually able to provide a quote for your vehicle within 24 hours of you submitting your enquiry to us.

However, if you are looking for the highest offers for your car, and the sale of your car is not particularly time sensitive, we recommend consigning your vehicle, as this is the most effective way to fetch a good price for your vehicle. As a car owner who is looking to sell your vehicle, you have definitely checked out vehicles of the same make, model, and age on SG Car Mart to deduce how much you can sell your car for. If that is the ballpark price you wish to attain, then consigning your vehicle is definitely the way to go. If you can identify with this scenario, you will then need a good consignment agent to help you to manage this sales process, settle the paperwork on your behalf, and help you to market the vehicle - all the way until the vehicle is sold and the money is in your pocket.

Marketing Your Vehicle Properly to Fetch a Good Price

In a consignment situation, your consignment agent is responsible for marketing the vehicle to potential buyers, attend to enquiries, conduct viewings of the vehicle, and ultimately help you to attract the highest offers for your vehicle. As such, a consignment agent with a good photography team can help your car stand out among other listings and lead to more enquiries and better prices. This is why each car we put up on consignment is properly detailed, dressed up, and goes through a professional photoshoot. Put yourself in the shoes of a potential buyer - wouldn't you want to enquire about a car that looks good and is well presented? Doesn't it make you feel like you're enquiring about a car that potentially requires less touch up and maintenance. If you're keen to market your car with a professional photoshoot, get in touch with us to consign your vehicle and get the best price from potential buyers.

Condition of Your Vehicle

With used cars, there are bound to be wear and tear related maintenance to be done on the car. However, if you were to sell a car that is due for major repairs to a car dealer, they will most definitely have to factor in the cost of repairs into your quote, as they would also need to address these repairs before selling it on to the next owner. However, in a consignment arrangement, your consignment agent would not need to factor these major repair costs into their quote, and you may still be able to market the car for a good selling price, depending on the buyer's temperament surrounding maintenance.

How Much Can I Sell My Car For?

At the end of the day, if you are genuinely interested in selling your car, and want to find out how much you can sell your car for, the only sure way to is ask us for a quote. It is FREE to enquire anyway so it does not hurt to get an additional quote for your vehicle. However, if you wish to consign your vehicle instead, we will also be able to assist you with a professional photoshoot, handling of all paperwork and documents, as well as marketing and selling your car for the highest price possible.
