In most cases, dealerships will offer you less than your car is worth. Don’t take it personally, it’s just business. They need to spend some money in restoring and repairing your car so they can still sell it in the market and gain some profit. If you are trading in an old car with high-mileage, expect the offer to be very low.
Selling your car on your own, on the other hand, is the best way to get the most money for it. But of course, you have to get the current retail value of your car. You need to include all the options and the actual mileage. Once you’ve determined the actual value of your car, you can post it via online classified ads or through the local newspapers. Make sure you have all the paper work done on hand for easier transaction.
