COVID-19-related lockdowns and limitations in New South Wales and Victoria have been modified, with individuals in sections of Australia’s most populous states now being ordered to stay at home unless in limited instances.

COVID-19 restrictions have had a significant impact on the used automobile selling a car and purchasing process i.e. the cash-for-cars industry. You’ll want to make sure you’re following proper social distancing and sanitary laws for where you reside.

Whether you’re purchasing or selling a car privately, through a dealership, or selling to a car removal company, you’ll probably do more of the process online or virtually than ever before as a result of these government-issued restrictions

Selling A Car Privately During Covid-19 Entails More Risks

The process of selling your used car to a private party has gotten more difficult. You’ll have to safeguard the safety of both you and potential buyers by disinfecting the vehicle before and after any test drives.

And you’ll almost certainly have to let the prospective buyer drive the automobile alone. Obtaining the sale, title, and registration papers can be difficult due to state DMV closures and delays.

Right now, there is a huge demand for old cars and there’s a scarcity of them. This means that prices are rising in every vehicle segment.

So, if you’re thinking of selling a car during covid-19, you might be able to get a couple of thousand dollars more than you would have before the pandemic. While a private-party sale will get you the most money, it isn’t the only way to sell your car.

Some Car Dealerships Carry Out Online Car Sales

Another option is to take advantage of an immediate cash offer, from your nearby used car dealerships. You can receive bids from dealers to buy your old automobile after providing them with some basic information.

With the present state of the used automobile market, having dealers compete for your current vehicle can help you get a decent deal. Dealers will be able to estimate the cost of your car depending on the information you provide, such as the make, model, age, and miles of your vehicle.

Some dealers can conduct inspections, collections, and payments at your place if they follow social distancing norms for contact-free transactions.

You can also trade it in at the dealership where you purchase your next vehicle, though you won’t get nearly as much money as you would elsewhere.

  • Choose a safe, neutral, open place, such as an empty petrol station car park, and keep a distance of 1.5 meters at all times.
  • After a test drive, bring sanitizing products with you to clean your car – focus on touchpoints like the key fob, steering wheel, transmission shifter, door handles, and other locations you’d regularly touch, such as the volume knob or heating settings. Don’t forget about the wiper and indicator stalks!
  • If you or a member of your family is sick, don’t schedule any meetings with possible buyers and stay at home until you feel better.
  • Before driving, give your automobile a thorough cleaning with an alcohol-based cleaner or wipes.
