Figuring out what to do with your old car can sometimes be difficult, especially if this is the first time you have possessed both cars simultaneously. If you have an old car sitting in your garage and are still contemplating what you can do with it, this is for you!
Here is a list of ways you can utilize your old car:
If you don’t mind parting with it, this is one of the most productive ways you can dispose of your old car. You can put the car in your driveway and put a ‘FOR SALE’ sticker on it. This way, people passing by your house will see it. You can also tell friends and family, and ask them to share it with their network. Promoting this way creates a distribution network, helping you spread the word about your car for sale to more people.
You can also have it advertised online or take your car to a dealership and try to get a reasonable price.
If you don’t need the extra money or are feeling generous, you can choose to donate the car to someone who you think could use a car. You can offer it to a friend, a family member, a colleague, or a charity organization.
If the car is in good condition, renting it out is another way to get rid of it and still make money from it. You could either loan it out to someone for an agreed-upon duration and fee or employ someone to drive it as a private transport vehicle (like Uber and Bolt).
Do you need something? Maybe some appliances, an exotic item, another type of vehicle, or just something valuable in the same range as your old car? Then you can opt to trade it in. There are various ways to trade your old car in for something else.
Many online marketplaces allow you to do this, for example, Facebook Marketplace, Amazon Renewed, E-bay, Jiji, Cars45, etc. You can discuss it with potential buyers and have it traded for an item they have that you want (and maybe some cash, too!).
If you know your car needs extensive repairs and doesn’t have much life left in it, you can consider selling the parts of your vehicle that are still functioning or in good condition. Contact a scrapyard in your area about salvaging your vehicle. With any luck, you can get a good price for all the good parts of your car. If you are aware of your old vehicle, simply think about this replacement as it is essentially out of life and would be extremely expensive to renew.
Depending on the state of your old car, figuring out what to do with your old car might not be as easy as cruising in your new one. These five tips can help you dispose of it the best way possible. Even better? Some of them show you how to earn money back from it!
