If you’re thinking about selling your old car, you have plenty of traditional and digital options to reach buyers. You could list your vehicle on Craigslist, Facebook, and other online platforms and reach a pretty big audience. Or you could go the old-fashioned route and park your car in a prime visibility spot with a For Sale sign on it. You can even get people to sell your car for you!
But did you know there are companies that will buy your car outright? We’re not talking about a used car dealership in Tucson that takes trade-ins on the cars and used trucks they sell. We’re talking about companies that are in the business of buying cars first and selling them second (for a nice profit!) But is selling your car to a car buying company the best option? To answer that question, we’ll look at one of the most popular car buying sites, We Buy Any Car.
Does We Buy Any Car Give You the Biggest Bang for Your Buck?
Webuyanycar.com is a company that buys cars from individuals. Reviews online are mixed, but Trustpilot gives them a score of 4.9 out of 5. The company’s landing page says so. The landing page also points out that “…buyers with a trade-in pay an average of $990 more than those who do not trade in their cars.” This statement may apply at some car dealerships, but not the good ones!
Regardless of whether the above statement is accurate, webuyanycar.com also states that “…the valuation may be adjusted at our discretion at any time, including prior to or during our in-branch vehicle inspection.” According to BBC News, We Buy Any Car was the target of action by the Office of Fair Trading (OTF) in the U.K. in 2011.
The article on the website states that the investigation revealed that an astounding 96 percent of customers received a lower amount of money than their original online valuation! At this point, you’re probably thinking trading in when it’s time to get a new car might be good idea, and you’d be right.
When you deal with a reputable used car dealer, you don’t have to worry about loopholes or changes to agreements. Used car dealerships like ours typically inspect your trade-in and then give you a valuation. There are no guestimates and sudden changes, just a fair trade-in value to go towards an affordable and dependable used car.
