If you want to sell your motorcycle, you can go the conventional route and advertise it locally, but an increasing number of people are opting to sell their motorcycle online.
Not only is it much easier to sell your bike online, but you can also reach out to a much larger audience, resulting in a faster sale.
Although selling privately will earn you more money, it is a time-consuming and costly process that lacks the speed and convenience that online selling provides.
We’ll go through your choices for selling a motorcycle online in order to help you decide which is right for you.
Options for Selling Your Motorcycle
When it comes to selling your motorcycle, you have three options: online through a bike buying service like Used Bike Buyer, privately, or through a part-exchange offer. We’ll go through the benefits and drawbacks of each in this section.
Selling privately, whether locally or online via sites like eBay, Autotrader, or Gumtree, is typically the first thought that comes to people’s minds.
You gain full control over the selling of the bike, including the price, by doing so, but there are a number of drawbacks.
For starters, selling privately will take a lot longer because you’ll have to meet with potential customers to show them the bike, and many of these meetings can end up being a waste of time.
And if you do find a buyer, there’s a fair chance you won’t get the deal you wanted because most buyers expect to be able to haggle you down on the price!
There’s also the possibility that you’ll be duped, which would be disastrous.
If you’re willing to overlook these flaws, you’ll likely get a decent price for your bike if you sell privately, but you’ll also have to factor in the listing fee that sites like eBay and AutoTrader charge you every time you relist the bike.
Bike Buying Service
Selling your motorcycle online via a service like Used Bike Buyer is fast becoming the chosen method of disposal. Selling online is not only fast and easy, but it’s also absolutely safe and secure.
All you have to do is enter your registration number and some basic details, and you’ll have a valuation in less than 48 hours.
If you approve the deal, we will pick up the bike within another 48 hours and give you cash or deposit the funds into your bank account before we even take the bike away.
Our customers find that this is a much faster and simpler way to complete the deal, and while you may not get the same price as if you sold privately, it really does take away a lot of the hassle.
Some dealers will provide part-exchange offers, which have some of the convenience and ease of a bike buying service (they’ll take your old bike and deliver you a new one), but the rates you’ll be given aren’t the best, and you’ll almost certainly get a better deal by selling your bike with us and using the money to walk into the same dealership and buy that new bike.
If you want to purchase a new motorcycle, why not sell your old one to us first? Then you can head to your next motorbike dealership or private seller with cash in hand, ready to discuss the best price on your next bike purchase.
