You may be asking yourself, “How do I sell my motorcycle?” There are several options to selling a motorcycle including placing an advertisement in a local classified publication, but you will miss the bulk of the online motorcycle audience.
Luckily, there are better ways to sell your bike or find expert motorcycle buyers, including taking it to a motorcycle dealer. While this may seem like a great idea at first, there are a few things you must consider. Bike dealers have a fixed overhead cost in running their business that may include advertising, employee salaries, employee benefits, utilities and more. These are hard motorcycle dealer costs that account for their pricing, and this affects what they pay you as trade-in cash offers. You can’t deny that every dealer has an overhead cost that will impact the amount they offer you for your bike.
You may decide to sell your motorcycle online because it seems simple at first glance. However, there are seven (7) critical steps to this process including the following:
Clean Your Bike
to make it like new for curb appeal. You may want to note that this step may take an hour or longer.
Write online or in app ad
that will grab your audience’s attention. Check out other motorcycle ads to get inspiration, and be sure to spell check to get the best possible response to your ad.
Set a few hours aside
from your schedule to respond and schedule appointments in a public place with your potential motorcycle buyers. We advise taking a friend or family member when meeting potential buyers for your safety.
Negotiate a fair price
that both you and the buyer agree is fair.
Be sure to have two (2) copies
of the bill of sale and title transfer readily available. One copy for the buyer and another copy for you to keep. Contact your local DMV or Tax Assessor’s Office to find out what additional documents they require to be signed.
Drive to your local Department of Public Safety
or county tax office depending on the state you reside in; be sure to take your title and bill of sale copies.
At the DMV or Tax Assessor’s Office
you will sign the bill of sale and transfer ownership in exchange for the buyer’s cash.
If selling your bike for cash online sounds like a lot of work, it is, and it will also be time consuming.
