Sell your Vehicle



Marketing and sales management


There are two established methods of selling your car. You can deal with the sale yourself and advertise privately or you can sell it on to a dealer. Each has its own pitfalls that you should be aware of.


Selling to a dealer

Selling to a dealer has its advantages in that if you are part exchanging you may be able to strike a good deal. Generally selling to a dealer can be quick and painless with minimum hassle, and furthermore no ongoing legal responsibility for the condition of the car.
However, some sellers may feel that their vehicle has been undervalued and the process of the dealer picking fault with their vehicle insulting. Additionally you may be in a situation where you owe more on finance for the vehicle than the dealer is offering you as a trade price.
At BHP - Buckinghamshire High Performance, we will buy your car outright, so if this is an option, call us today.


Selling privately


You believe you can get more money from selling privately. But is it as easy as that? Below are some of the potential pitfalls that can arise from a private sale. Our aim is not to scare you but to share our knowledge and experience.


  • A private retail value will never match that of a dealer, as you cannot offer the same level of service. For example providing finance, taking part exchange, warranties, after sales care, the list goes on.
  • There are the advertising costs, which can spiral over time, due to lack of interest.
  • Timewasters. Good old tyre kickers, test pilots, call them what you like - they will waste your time or not even turn up.
  • Who is coming to view your car at your house? Are they the sort of person you would normally invite to your home? This can, and will, make you feel uncomfortable.
  • Did you know that contrary to popular belief, when you sell your car privately you are still legally liable to the purchaser for a period of time decided by a court?
  • It is unlikely that you or the potential buyer is correctly insured to test drive your car.
  • Scams. There is literally too many to list!! Counterfeit money and bankers drafts, fraudulent cards and internet banking. The list goes on, these people are professionals and you could be the next victim.
  • Car jacking; you are on a test drive with someone you do not know. How might it end?
  • Modern cars are very difficult to steal without the keys, due to sophisticated immobiliser technology. This has led to an increase in aggravated house burglaries. The “buyer” knows your address, your car, they may have even checked out your house security when they were "just looking".
  • Thinking of a quick sale on ebay? Think again. We all love ebay for a bargain, but it is full of pitfalls. Tread very carefully here.

What is the available market?


Below are the results of a recent survey analysing the used car market. This graph shows that selling your car privately limits you to 8% of potential buyers. Therefore BHP can open up a further 92% of the market for you, as well as eradicate the issues we have listed above. Furthermore 72% of respondents said that warranty and dealer backup was important to them when choosing a vehicle.

We all have different ideas on what makes the dream car, we all pine for something slightly different, unique maybe. What we can agree on is that such vehicles are typically very hard to find and often prohibitively expensive, especially if purchased through a large dealership with equally large overheads to pay.


You work hard, you have the money, you know exactly what you want. However, finding the right vehicle is not that easy, nor is it without hassle and potential disappointment.


Sourcing and buying quality vehicles is what we do every day, so why not let us do the hard work and source exactly what you crave.

We will only purchase a car that meets the exacting BHP standards, we will find the very best examples, we will deal with the logistics, no matter where the vehicle is located in the world, we will tailor a finance package to suit you, but most of all, we will remove the pain, the hassle, the legwork.


Now all you need to do is pick up the phone, and leave the rest to us.
