Sounds entirely reasonable. The car salesman needs to eat and Turners needs to cover their costs and still make a profit

Plus you now have a baseline, if you want to list it on trademe, manage all the questions, requests for test drives etc etc and get offered $18k from the trademe buyer you know what your options are.

Surely there's a close relationship between the amount of work one is willing to put in and the net gain from selling a car? Ie, the "easier" methods are also likely to be ones that provide you with lower returns.

 

I can't imagine many sales methods easier than that direct purchase option by Turner's, so no surprise their offer is  lower than what you'd get via other means. It's just a matter of finding the method that, from your perspective, appropriately balances the effort vs return.

Turners are buying your car as is. If you are selling your own car privately you will have to take into account keeping insurance up to date and being prepared to put a new warrant on it if it’s more then a month old. Is it due for a new rego anytime shortly. All these thing will cut into your bottom line.

When I purchased a new car in 2015 and had my 20 year old car to get rid of, I did the Turners thing.

 

I knew I was going to get lowballed, and sure enough I was offered $200 on the spot or $500 if I got a new WOF. I went with the $200 option .. I learnt later on it was sold for just under $2k via auction and I saw it a few months later driving around. But I did want easy and easy is what I got...

Thanks for all the replies/suggestions.

 

 

 

We have just sold the vehicle on Trademe for 22k

 

It certainly took a bit more work (we had the exterior professionally detailed to look showroom new, I cleaned up the interior with leather cleaning wipes etc), warranty/rego/wof are all current so there is no extra expenditure, and title transfer is free on NZTA website.

 

 

 

but obviously we got a much better price for the amount of work put in.

Thanks for the update. Interesting to see the Turners valuation was pretty accurate too.

Yeah the Turner guy literally opened up Trademe and went through Qashqai sales they have in the last couple of month so they definitely got the data for it.
