If you’re looking to sell your motorcycle or scooter, you’ve got options beyond trading in or selling your motorcycle privately. Getting your motorcycle appraised at Motoworks is quick and easy! Each year we buy over 200 motorcycles and scooters and we are always looking for more.
We’ve heard from customers that private motorcycle sales can take longer than selling a motorcycle to Motoworks. Big corporate websites don’t take into consideration what makes your motorcycle special because they don’t know motorcycles the way we know motorcycles. We’ve heard plenty of stories from sellers that express how much more difficult it is to do a private sale including dealing with folks who just stop responding and others that are just looking for a “test ride.” All told, it can take a lot of time — sometimes weeks or even months — to sell a motorcycle on your own.
And, if you’re still making payments on your motorcycle or scooter while you’re trying to sell it, you could pay a lot while you’re finding the right buyer.
Often times, if you don’t mind waiting a bit longer for the right buyer, you will get a larger sale price through a private sale. Here are a few tips from edmunds.com on how to do so safely.
If you’ve tried to do a private sale and it wasn’t your cup of tea, that’s alright. It can be a draining process even for those of us who do it for a living : )
