What can I do? Selling or changing your car right now?

How do I know it’s time to sell my car?

People’s circumstances change, and you might find yourself looking to change, sell, or buy a new car. So, what can you do if you find yourself in the market right now for a new motor?

So, you want or need to change your current car?

Perhaps your family has expanded and the 2-seater sports car on the driveway is now really impractical? Or your current car has reached an age when you are starting to worry about its reliability and having a solid means of transport is critical to you? Or possibly having your current car sitting on your drive is costing you too much and you want to trade-in for a more economical option?

It could be that, selling your car privately would have been your usual method of choice, but with mixed messaging around what is allowed, especially after the Central Motorway Police Group (CMPG), which covers Staffordshire and West Midlands police pulled a private car buyer over and deemed it “non-essential”. This along with the fall in private car-buying demand right now is making the private sale option a bit of a minefield, that you want to steer clear of.
