Selling a Car? Avoid Haggling

If you’re selling a car, you are very likely to fall into the trap of haggling with potential buyers. Sooner or later, car buyers will come to you wanting to buy your car. You’ll tell them how much you’re selling the car for, and they’ll hem and haw. “Well…” they’ll say.

Avoid this trap at all costs.

Something you have to understand about haggling: it never results in mutually beneficial results. Haggling is what professional negotiators call “positional bargaining.” This is in opposition to “principled negotiation” — negotiation based on objective criteria.

Whenever possible, sell your car based on objective criteria. Don’t let your buyer just give you a price and try to lowball you. That will never work out in your favor, because it’s not based on actual standards. Instead, you should negotiate based on what the car is actually worth.

Believe us. It’ll work out much better for you in the long run. You’ll be much more satisfied, and you’ll avoid the feeling of “seller’s remorse” if you don’t sell based on your buyer’s mere whim or preferences.

Call Boston Car Buyers at (617) 547-0692 or visit our Cambridge location at 186 Monsignor O’Brien Hwy. Cambridge, MA 02141. We’ll answer all of your questions to your satisfaction, and will buy your car based on objective, mutually agreed-upon standards.

Haggling is not a way to build relationships, and that’s the business we’re in — relationship building. Souring a relationship is the last thing we want to do when buying a car from someone.

No haggling from us. We promise.
