Sale to an online dealer

When you sell to an online dealer, the entire sale is done digitally. In addition, the chances are higher that you will achieve a great purchase price, as the car is put up for auction and presented to many dealers throughout Switzerland who can place a bid. On the Farie platform, you have the opportunity to place your car in such a dealer auction for free. This gives hundreds of dealers the opportunity to bid for your car. Thanks to the large reach, you increase your chances of finding a suitable dealer and benefiting from the highest bid. Unfortunately, in an auction the bid is only valid for a few days, which is why it is advisable to start the process at the time of the sale. The fact that you can start the process easily and comfortably online from home plays into your hands.

Sale to a private person

The alternative to selling to a dealer is to sell directly to a private person. The advantage of this solution is that no third party makes a profit on the sale, so in most cases you get the highest possible purchase price for your old car. Platforms such as Autoscout, Facebook Marketplace or other comparable platforms are suitable for a sale to a private individual. However, this option is a little more time-consuming for you, can take a long time and sometimes involves legal risks if defects are discovered in the vehicle after the sale.

Questions or uncertainties

How does the sale to a private person work?

When selling to a private person, it is best to use a platform such as Autoscout or Facebook Marketplace. In order to achieve the best possible selling price, it is advisable to plan enough time for the preparation of your advertisement. In a first step, you should research a fair market price for your car. Then it is important to carefully note down all the equipment features as well as any damage or signs of wear and tear and record them in the advertisement. Taking good pictures of the car you want to sell is essential. For the best results, it is even advisable to have any damage or signs of use professionally repaired. Particularly in the case of damage or defects, there is always a risk that these could lead to legal disputes later on, if a buyer discovers a defect in the purchased car and this was not known at the time of purchase. Once all the details have been correctly recorded and the car has been cleanly prepared, the next step is to find the right potential buyers, coordinate appointments for test drives and, with a bit of luck, sell the car for a great price.

How does selling to a local dealer work?

Selling to a dealer near you is super simple. The best thing to do is to drive your car directly there so that the dealer of your choice can make an offer on the spot. Of course, it may happen that the dealer is not interested in your car. In that case, it is advisable to try an auction, as the chances of finding a suitable dealer are much higher.

How does selling to a dealer via a platform work?

When selling to a dealer via an online platform, you save yourself the journey and also have a better chance of getting a higher sales price than at a local dealer. If you want to try selling your car at auction, free of charge and without obligation, you can do so on the Farie.ch website. Please note that the highest price at an auction is only valid for a few days and it is not guaranteed that it will be achieved again at a later sale or a new auction. Since not always exactly the same dealers are bidding, it can also happen that there are no bids. In any case, we wish you every success with your sale. By the way: Even when selling to a dealer, it is advisable to clean and properly prepare the car.
