Selling my junk car is one of the most dreaded tasks I’ve ever undertaken, but it’s all because I was completely unprepared. I know you’re probably wondering what I mean by that, but I’ve actually been to this point before and had to sell my car a few months back.
We were just looking for a place to put some of our vehicles. You see we bought the car a couple of months prior because we needed a vehicle to get around in, but we weren’t driving that vehicle, we were renting it. Anyway, we bought the car for the price we could afford and were driving it from Vancouver BC to Seattle WA.
We started off slowly, but then I got to thinking about how great this vehicle would look running down the highway. Of course the issue was that we had no idea where we would end up or how long we would be gone. Once we set off, it became evident that we would need a vehicle.
Luckily I was already in the market for a vehicle and I decided that I would get something out of it. The old saying of ‘buy low, sell high’ has always been true to me and as a result I found a car that was running, not needing any kind of gas, but had a clean title. Now this was a bit of a let down for me, I wanted a little piece of my home town so I wouldn’t end up having to pay thousands of dollars in taxes on the vehicle, so I didn’t want it a wreck.
The next part was figuring out the fair value of this vehicle. In order to do this I went online and did some research. I learned that there are certain factors that go into determining a fair value of a vehicle, the state it was sold in and its overall condition.
Once I had all these factors figured out I made my choice as to which vehicle I wanted to sell. The choice was a ‘scope’ car. Now this is a term that I had never heard of, but I thought it was a great word for something that’s way too pricey.
It means that I would go through with selling the car, but I’d have to put it up for lease, and then if the car didn’t get sold I would have to take it back to the dealership and have it repaired. But, this is the exact opposite of what I wanted to do.
I now have an old vehicle that I could very well put up for lease and if I don’t then I will have to keep my money, because I’m just not going to have enough money to fix it up. In the end I ended up selling my car for a couple of hundred, but I have learned some valuable lessons in the process.
