When you sell your car, one of your options is to sell it privately. Before you decide to do this, you have to think of the pros and cons of putting your Charlotte used car on the market yourself. 

Sell a car privately cons: 

It can be a lot of work to sell your car privately. Not only do you have to advertise your car by listing it on websites like, you have to put in a lot of time talking to and meeting with buyers. You'll also have to work with your finance company and the banks yourself, which can be a hassle. Basically, it takes a lot of legwork to sell your car privately.

Additionally, you never know how long it's going to take to sell - it could be days or months! The more time it takes to sell your car, the longer you have to wait for the money. If you're planning on using that money for a down payment on a new ride, this can be problematic!
