Promote and Be prepared
Have all the relevant paperwork together, such as the V5C, service history and MOT certificate, for a potential buyer to review. Buyers may wish to check details such as the address on the V5C and the mileage figure on the most recent MOT certificate.
Beware of scammers
Beware of scammers, and always meet the buyer. A genuine buyer should want to view the vehicle before making the payment.
Request the potential buyer’s contact details, such as their mobile number (especially if they call from a withheld number), landline number and full home address. This should give you further reassurances, and a legitimate buyer should be happy to provide this information.
Keep hold of the vehicle, the keys and all the documents until the full payment has cleared in your bank account.
Always ensure you can see the keys, and make sure you take them out of the ignition. You should also make sure you can see the buyer at all times.
