How To Sell Your Car After The Brexit


If you are one of those people who have been thinking of selling your beloved car for a while now, and when you’ve finally decided on doing so, the news of the Brexit sent a bombshell across the UK sending people scampering. With the pound losing its value right after the announcement and people making predictions about the state of businesses across the UK like it’s the end of the world, it’s easy to be swept away by the hysteria. And although the car industry was not spared from the effects of the Brexit, the good news is that experts have agreed that the USED car industry is expected to be largely unaffected – so good news for you and other people who are thinking of selling their pre loved vehicles. So, in light of the Brexit,  you can read the different tips below on how you go about selling your used car.



Keep Calm      


While its certainly understandable that amidst the uncertainty that’s surrounding the Brexit, people are starting to get little worried about their finances, and keeping calm although the most logical thing to do is easier said than done. The main thing to remember at this point is that the UK is STILL in the European Union, and it will stay in Europe until a little thing called Article 50 is invoked and negotiations can take place for Britain’s grand exit. These negotiations can take up to two years to finalize, so either way, the value of your car will unlikely be affected. In fact, experts agree that the used car industry is one the industry that is least expected to be affected by the Brexit.


Find Out Your Car’s Value


Once you’ve decided that it’s time for you to say goodbye to your treasured car, one of the first things that you should do is to find out how much your car is worth. Do your homework by asking around or surf the internet for websites that can get your car valued free of charge. Get one, two or more estimates on how much your car is worth so that you can get a good idea on your car’s value.


Prepare The Needed Documents


Prepare the important documents needed to sell your car such as the car title and the bill of sale. You want to prepare these documents beforehand and not scramble to get them after you’ve made the sale. This will save you a lot of headaches, as well as to make sure that the sale goes smoothly for you and your buyer.



When you’ve finally made the sale, don’t forget to contact your insurance company to cancel the coverage that’s attached to your car.



Decide Which Way You Want to Sell Your Car


There are a more than one ways of selling your car. One is doing a private sale. This means that you’ll be the one who will personally do the heavy lifting of selling your car. You’ll have to make the advertisement, prepare the paper works, and make yourself available should your potential buyer wants to test drive the car. Usually this route works well, but can prove to be a bit cumbersome to you if you don’t have that much time to devote to it. An alternative way to going about selling your car would be to use an online service such as we buy any car.  This website makes selling your cars easy as one, two, three. They value your car, and if you’re happy with what they offer, they deposit the money in your account and they even come to pick up the car, so, absolutely no hassle to you.


In the end, choose the best way that’s most comfortable to you because at the end, that’s what counts.


Get Your Car Ready


Whether you choose to sell your car privately or use online services like, it’s important that you get your car ready. Remember, don’t sell a car that you wouldn’t want to buy yourself. Getting your car ready can be as simple as taking your car to the car wash, or fixing things that needs fixing. Otherwise, be transparent to your buyer on the things that you find wrong in the car. People appreciate honesty.



While it is a fact that the Brexit will have a profound effect on all businesses across the UK – both good and bad, at this point, nothing is certain yet until Britain has invoked the now infamous Article 50 to start the negotiations for its eventual exit from the EU. And while this uncertainty has had negative effect on some of the businesses, the used car industry is expected to be largely unaffected and is business as usual for people who buy and sell used cars.
