Selling a big-ticket item such as a car can be a tricky and time-consuming process for the unfamiliar but we’ve found an easy, value-for-money way around it.
It’s human nature to want things done as quickly and easily as possible. But unless you’re talking about making a cup of instant noodles, quickly and easily doesn’t always seem like best way about. Take for instance, the processes and procedures involved with selling a big-ticket item like a car. Because cars in Singapore are stupidly expensive, we would normally spend a lot more time and effort ensuring that we get the best deals, problem-free.
Sure, there’s always the option of selling your car to the nearest used car dealer you see, but from personal experience, dealers might offer you a price so low that you will reconsider your sale entirely.
None of us want to be short-changed, right? You can also try selling the car on your own by advertising on sgCarMart but as fun as direct selling is, it’s sometimes tough to fully commit to the sale process due to our hectic schedules, notably the financial and ownership paperwork involved.
Worse, there’s the chance of encountering ‘askholes’ and ‘cheapos’, and after a tiring day on the job, that’s the last thing you’d want to deal with. Some recommend selling through consignment agents because finance and paperwork support is provided, but unless your consignment agent really goes the extra mile to get your car sold quickly and for a good price, there’s the inevitable risk of a waiting game.
By this time, you must think I’m an extremely picky and difficult person, having shot down the quicker but lower paying option, as well as the slower but better paying ones. However, it is this difficult attitude of mine that lead me to finding out the perfect solution, and that’s selling my car by means of a proven bidding system.
Bidding? Like in a classic car auction?
Very much so, except for the fact that there are many more bidders and you don’t physically have to be present for the process. Sounds too good to be true? Not at all.
To help car owners who are looking to sell their cars maximise returns, sgCarMart Quotz, an online bidding platform, offers a unique service that puts used cars up for bidding.
sgCarMart Quotz helps car sellers get the most attractive car sale price from a network of over 500 used car dealers. Cars go through a 188-point inspection before being listed on an open bidding system. The highest offer will be ready within an hour and the seller gets to choose whether to accept the offer. If it is accepted, the seller gets paid immediately, and the car can be handed over in two weeks’ time.
The service comes with a $100 guarantee that it will provide an unmatchable highest dealer offer available in the market. Quotz is a subsidiary of Singapore Press Holdings & sgCarMart.com and has successfully transacted over 15,000 cars.
Sounds cool, how and where do I go about this?
The process is simple. You’re only required to make an appointment with sgCarMart Quotz’s staff via Website, Whatsapp, SMS or Phone for a professional 188-point inspection and photo-taking of your car before the pictures and details are submitted for bidding.
It guarantees its selling price is the highest in Singapore. If you can find a higher offer, it will give you $100 in cash.
With Singapore’s most efficient bidding system of over 500 dealers, the highest bid price will be ready for you in just one working hour. Should you feel that the price is not right, there is absolutely no obligation to accept the offer. Say goodbye to stress.
Once you accept the offer, it will pay you a cash deposit to seal the deal. The balance sum will be paid to you once you handover the vehicle. You can choose when to handover your car, up to 14 days later. It will handle all the transfer paperwork and documentation. Quotz has transacted over 15,000 cars, and as a subsidiary of Singapore Press Holdings & sgCarMart.com, it will deliver on its promises.
