Selling a used vehicle needn't be too stressful if you know what to do it. However, if that car is damaged selling it can be a real problem.

If you intend to sell your damaged car to someone who is going to use it, the likelihood is, you're not going to make much money and you're going to be stuck between a rock and a hard place - fixing your car and then selling it which always seems like a waste of money or trying to sell a car that doesn't run properly. If you are opting for the latter then expect a great deal of bartering and you ending up with less in your pocket than you'd hoped.

In the past your only option was to cut your losses and sell it to the scrap yard for virtually nothing. If you were very brave and had some mechanical skill you could break the car down into parts and sell it piece by piece and get a bit more money for it. However, not only are few people able to do so, those that do usually end up having to pay for the shell of the car to be taken away by a scrap merchant. Luckily, a new breed of car dealers has come to the rescue of owners whose cars have been damaged.

If your car is damaged and it's really not worth fixing either to drive yourself or to sell on, consider contacting a dealership that specialises in buying cars with faults. Although you are of course not going to get what you'd make if the car was in good working condition, you are going to get much more than if you sell it privately or get it fixed and then sell it.

Damaged car dealers have mechanics on site that can fix used cars with second hand parts. The other beauty about this option is the convenience. In most cases these car buyers will collect your damaged car and pay you upfront. This solves the issue of your driving a damaged cars that may no longer be roadworthy. For example if your car has had a smash and the lights are no longer intact and in full working order should you get stopped by the police driving that car to a garage to sell it or repair it you could end up with a big fine. Likewise, if you have let the car's MOT lapse driving it to the garage you have sold it to would also be illegal. In that case not only would you be fined. You would also be setting yourself to have penalty points added to your licence.

This is also a great route if you want to avoid strangers turning up for an uninsured test drive, bartering to within an inch of their lives and you being stuck with a mass of paperwork.
Selling your damaged car for cash to a decent and reputable damaged car dealership is going to cut out a lot of headaches.
