Sometimes it is hard to know when the right time is to sell a car, especially if you have had your car for a long time and it has become your pride and joy. Here are 5 signs it is time to sell or part exchange your car.
It is not performing as well
If you have noticed your car is not performing as well as it once was before, you may decide that you would like to trade your car in for a car that you believe performs better. However, some people may decide to do repairs and replacements on the car before they consider selling it, it is really down to personal preference and how much you enjoy driving your current car.
It’s needing replacements of parts
If your car parts are not working as good as they once were before and they are slightly worn, it is a good idea to get the parts replaced, but sometimes some professional technicians say repairs could be worth more than the value of the car, so this is when you would consider selling or even potentially scrapping your car.
It’s failing its MOTs
If your car is failing MOTs it is not road legal until it passes, so it is important to make sure your car has a valid MOT certificate before selling the vehicle, but if a car keeps failing an MOT is an indication that it may not be in the best health, so if you are wanting to drive a more reliable car, it might be time to purchase a different car.
You are bored of the car
Being bored of a car is a valid reason to sell your car. If you are a car enthusiast and you get a buzz from looking at lots of cars, you will probably be likely to change your cars frequently, buying and selling cars is a hobby of some people and it can be a good way of making money on your cars if you do it the right way.
Your family is expanding
If your family is expanding, now might be the right time to sell your car, especially if your current car is small in size. Bigger sized families prefer to have a bigger car as their family car as it means more room for the whole family and there will be more boot space for prams and all the essentials for babies and toddlers.
