No used car sale without a car valuation
The determination of the value is an absolute must before the sale of an end-of-life vehicle. Because without knowing this, it is impossible to get a good price.
There are many offers for such valuations. In some cases, however, they are only possible online or at a specialist and often involve a fee.
the problem: an online assessment can only provide an approximate estimate. It is impossible for a machine to take into account individual factors. Therefore, an accurate valuation with expert knowledge is absolutely necessary. but this can be very expensive depending on the provider.
At wirkaufendeinauto.De is the professional evaluation part of the sales process. In addition, our valuation system is 100% free of charge.

A clean car sells better
The first impression is often decisive. This also applies to the sale of a used car. A thorough car wash, both inside and out, will therefore have a positive effect on the selling price.
Before you sell your old car, take out all your personal belongings. This makes the vehicle look tidier and creates a better impression.
At the latest when you hand in the vehicle, you should have cleared out all private matters. Once the car has changed owner, it is difficult to get it back again.
Do not forget car accessories
If you want to pass on car accessories, bring them to your delivery appointment. These can be winter tires, trailer couplings, roof racks or similar extras.
As a seller, it is worthwhile to offer the accessories as well. Especially if it is specifically adapted to your vehicle model and cannot be used for another vehicle.
The right sales documents
In order to avoid unnecessary stress, it is advisable to compile all documents prior to the valuation.
- The registration certificates part I and II: they provide important information about the history of the vehicle.
- A valid identity card or passport + registration confirmation: the ID is necessary to match personal data. This is the only way to ensure that you really are the owner.
It is not possible to sell the vehicle without the vehicle registration certificate (Zulassungsbescheinigung II). If you can’t find the letter anymore, you have to apply for a new one before you hand in your used car.
This can be done without any problems at the authorities. What you should pay attention to: the application process may take some time. Take care of them early.
The registration certificate part II is the most important document for your vehicle. Learn more here.
If you are selling on behalf of a third party, you will also need a power of attorney from the owner.
If the payment has not yet been completed? Then the vehicle title may still be with the bank. Get the letter for the sale of the used vehicle. This is possible with the help of a written agreement or debt rescheduling.
You need the vehicle registration certificate (Zulassungsbescheinigung I) so that it can be cancelled at the vehicle registration office. Only when you are no longer registered as the keeper, you are no longer responsible.
Find out here what information can be found in the registration certificate I.
Other useful documents:
- Service booklet
- HU certificate

What options do I have for selling my car??
Basically you have the choice between selling to a dealer or a private person. Both options have advantages and disadvantages.
Sales transaction via dealer
Selling a used car is usually quick and in many cases involves taking care of the formalities.
However, because car dealers are profitable, prices are often lower; you may also have to pay service fees. If your car does not belong to the dealer’s brand association, it may not be purchased at all.
What to consider when selling a used car to professionals? Find out here.
Selling to a dealer is particularly worthwhile if you are looking for a replacement for your used car. With the car exchange it is possible to get either a higher sales price or a discount on the new replacement car.
The return of the old car counts as a down payment for the new one. This means that the purchase price is offset against the price of the new one.
Sometimes there are also fixed discounts when you trade in your car. Therefore, it is worthwhile to research in advance which offers are currently valid. If you meet the conditions, it is a lucrative alternative for you.

Arrange the sale privately
First you create an advertisement. This is possible online with various providers.
Selling a vehicle online has the advantage of reaching far more buyers than, for example, a small ad in the local press. This means that the chance of a satisfactory sale price is many times greater.
We buy a car.De also offers you a solution for this. We have prepared a guide for you on how to create the perfect advertisement.
But this advantage can also quickly become a disadvantage. This supposedly simple sales method is much more strenuous than expected. Not only are a large number of potential buyers looking for contact: they call at any time of the day or night!
It is not uncommon for the callers to be professionals who buy as many cars as possible in order to export them at a profit. The difficulty is to filter out the serious ones from all the interested parties.
Once you have made your first selection, you need to organize test drives. These also require a lot of time.
In the subsequent price negotiation is a good negotiating skills of advantage. Otherwise you will quickly give away a few hundred euros.
Once you have agreed on a price with the buyer, draw up a contract accordingly. On the internet you can find forms that you can use. Make sure that you show the identity card of the contracting party and record all the data correctly.
The contract is an important part when you sell your used car. Read here what to consider.

What are the difficulties of selling a used car??
The sale does not have to be complicated. However, there are some factors that make selling your used car difficult. The most important factors are color, tuning, brand, mileage, condition, equipment and whether the car is accident-free.
Sooner or later every car owner gets a suitable offer for his used car. However, there are cases where it is not easy to find a suitable buyer.
1. The color
There are no limits to your creativity when it comes to the color of your car. Whether it’s pink with yellow dots, stickers of your favorite band or leather seats with cow spots – what one person likes may not be to the taste of another. The more individual your used car, the less interest you will get.
2. The tuning
Just like the color, tuning can not meet the taste of the masses. Therefore, the sale process of tuned cars is often delayed and associated with a lower price. on special car exchanges for tuned cars the chance is usually better than at a car dealer.
3. The brand
Frequent product recalls, software manipulation or poor breakdown statistics – not every vehicle brand is popular on the market. A bad brand image leads to fewer drivers considering this car brand when buying a car. The sale usually takes longer and the loss of value is higher.
4. The mileage
The more kilometers your used car has, the lower the price – unless it is a classic car. A high mileage often indicates a high level of wear and tear. This means that soon repairs will be due. This reduces the possible sales proceeds and also reduces the number of interested parties.
5. The condition
dents, rust and low maintenance – a bad car condition means a price drop on the market. And the willingness to buy such a car is not very high. Pet hair and the smell of cigarettes are exclusion criteria for many car buyers. A thorough car wash helps.
6. The equipment
The complete range of optional extras does not necessarily have to be available. Nevertheless, certain features such as air conditioning and power windows play a major role for potential buyers. Without this equipment or if it is defective, the selling price drops significantly.
7. The accident
A minor accident, after which everything has been properly repaired and defects have been eliminated, is hardly a reason to exclude the purchase. The situation is different, however, if the car has been involved in an accident with immense material damage or if the damage has not been repaired by a professional. Fear of consequential damage deters many buyers.
Can I sell a financed car?
Yes, this is also possible during a current financing period. To do this, discuss with your bank the conditions that will allow you to terminate the contract early.
Turn to wirkaufendeinauto.De, we will help you. We also accept financed vehicles and discuss the details with your credit institution. To make this process easier, bring all of the vehicle financing documents with you to your appointment with us.
