DIY Approach to Selling Your Car Online

We’re living in a whole new world when it comes to car buying and car selling. Electric vehicles are roaming the streets and increasing in number, new technology is promising to do away with gasoline powered engines, and the ability to sell your car online is a reality.

It was just years ago that selling your car online wasn’t easily available. Surely, there were no big companies like “Carvana” and “Vroom” willing to buy your car in just a few clicks. Websites like “Autotrader” did exist, but it exhibited no such technology that would allow you to press a few buttons and sell your vehicle or buy some other. In 2022, that’s now the new normal. In the same amount of time it takes for you to sit through the commercials of your favorite television show, you could sell your vehicle. And, after doing some research and experiencing firsthand what it’s like to do so, we’re here to tell you why it could be the right move for you.

Less stress, better life

One of the biggest draws of selling your car online is how easy it can be. Selling your car in a more traditional way is almost always going to be more stressful. Spending hours in a car dealership, being low-balled, and negotiating your way to the sale of your vehicle can be very stressful. Not everyone wants to go through that process – it’s very draining. If you have the option to cut out the negotiations, the fighting, and the long conversations, why wouldn’t you do it? Well, many people are doing it. 

According to CNBC, both supply and demand are seeing an acceleration of dealers moving to digital; dealers are now looking to buy and bid online. Similarly, according to, 48% of consumers want to handle price negotiations online. Statistics like these will show you, as someone who might be interested in selling their car online, that this movement is not going anywhere and the practice of selling your vehicle could be best handled online. 

If selling your car will give you a lot less stress and more time to focus on things that are worthwhile and important, consider it as an option. 

If it’s easy, it’s for you and me

Selling your car online is super simple. Take it from someone with firsthand experience – the process was fantastic. All you need to do is spend some time searching through the different car-buying websites. The most popular right now are most likely “Carvana” and “Vroom.” Both platforms make the process simple and straightforward. You’ll fill in some basic information about you and your car, and in just a few days, these companies will send you the price that they’re willing to pay for your vehicle. Most times, the offers they give will be close in monetary value. Most consumers will just go with whoever offers more money. In a short time, once you accept the offer, the company will come to pick up your vehicle. Shortly followed by a direct deposit of the money they owe you.

Selling your car online can truly be that simple. It might not be for everyone, but it definitely takes away some of the stress and frustration that traditional car salesmanship might induce. If you’re being offered a fair price but without the stress of negotiating with different people and multiple dealerships, why not consider selling your car online? You may never have to step foot into a dealership ever again!
