Car Buying Services Make it so Easy for Mums Like Me

Car Buying Services Make it so Easy for Mums Like Me

March 13, 2014 0 By Adam Kirby

Hi all, I just thought I’d share with you a wonderful experience I had recently when selling my car. You see, the thing was I didn’t have a lot of time to waste marketing my car and trying to sell it to people only for them to mess me around – as you all know, I’m a busy mum with kids to take care of! In my mind, this left me with no alternative but to use a car buying service. I was a little dubious at first – perhaps if I just spent a little more time trying to sell the car privately, I would get a better deal? But no, I’m so glad I did what I did – mums know best, after all! Read on for the rest of my story including the valuation on my car and how it works:

Why I Used This Service

As I mentioned before, I’m a very busy mom. If I’m not dressing the kids, feeding the kids, bathing the kids, putting the kids to bed, or playing with the kids, then you can pretty much put money on the fact that I’ll be getting some much needed beauty sleep. I feel as if I get little or no time at all to myself most days – I can’t even have a wee without one of my beloved children coming to join me in the bathroom. I knew that trying to sell my car privately would stress me out, and stress my kids out due to a domino effect (if I’m happy, the family is happy!). Was I willing to sacrifice the little free time I had in order to sell my car privately, perhaps taking months of my time? Hell no! I decided to do what was right for myself and my family, and use a car buying service.

Important Factors to Consider When Buying a Car

The Benefits

The benefits of using a service like this were invaluable to me. I’ll name just a few or I could be here all day (the kids won’t like that):

  • More time to spend with my family.

  • Less hassle than selling the car privately.

  • No chance of dealing with ‘tyre kickers’ – you know you have a serious buyer right then and there!

  • Feels like a weight off your shoulders.

  • It was quick and simple to do.

I feel that those benefits were the most important for me when selling my car. Here’s how I did it…

How I Did It

You start off by answering a simple questionnaire about your vehicle, which will then give you a valuation. You’ll answer questions regarding:

  • Your reg.

  • The history of your vehicle.

  • The condition of your vehicle.

You then enter your contact details and somebody promptly gets back to you with a valuation. If you’re happy with your valuation like I was, you can then choose to sell your vehicle to the car buying service. I can’t recommend services like this enough, it certainly made my life much easier and my purse a little happier!
