If you live in a city with plenty of public transport and ride share options, you really don’t need a car. If you don’t take trips out of the city at the weekend and don’t need it for work or the school run, you could probably live without it.
We aren’t telling you want to do. But if the thought has ever occurred, to switch from driving to public transport and ride sharing, now is a great time to do it.
There are plenty of ride share apps available and we’ll buy your car from you for cash. What more do you need?
Reasons to Sell your Old Car
There are a few viable reasons to sell your old car if you live in the city.
Lower cost of living
Cars can be expensive. There’s gas, insurance, parking, maintenance, servicing and auto loan payments to consider. How much could you save if you lived without a car for a while?
The average car running costs are around $1,300 per year not including auto loan payments. Think of what else you could do with that money!
Switching from driving to public transport, walking or cycling is the ultimate expression of sustainability. Whether you believe in global warming or not, the fact our cities are filled with pollution from vehicles is undisputed.
This is your opportunity to play your part.
Way of life
If you don’t have kids, don’t need a car to get to work or college, have your groceries delivered or pick them up on your way home, you probably don’t need a car.
If you want to travel, you can hire one. If you need to take a long trip, you can get a train or fly. Both will be much cheaper than keeping a car around just in case you might need it one day.
You stay in the city
If you don’t drive into the countryside for mountain biking, kayaking or hiking, don’t drive across the city to watch the game or visit your buddies, you probably don’t need a car.
There are plenty of opportunities to get around without having to pay to keep a car. Most of our cities have excellent public transit systems, so you’re never really out of touch.
Higher prices paid for cars
Now is a great time to sell your car. Used car prices are on the rise and there is more demand for them than ever before.
A combination of semiconductor shortages, the pandemic and supply chain issues mean there aren’t as many new cars being manufactured right now. This puts pressure on used car stocks, which means cars are more valuable.
Selling to a dealership is easy
If selling privately has put you off, sell your old car to a dealership instead. We pay fairly and provide a safe, reliable system for buying used cars. We pay directly into your bank too!
Make an appointment, have the car inspected and valued, accept the offer, get paid. How simple is that?
