You have trekked with your motoring companion over mountains, through deserts and across urban landscapes for quite some years. Then the desire for something new, something different starts tucking at your heartstrings. Shinier models grab your attention as they noiselessly swoosh past you on the road. Moreover, you have worked hard through the years, and it has not gone unnoticed. Your boss informs you that you will receive a salary increase next month. You may even be the lucky recipient of a significant annual bonus. These occurrences may all contribute to you waking up one morning with an inspirational thought: “I want to sell my car.”
To sell your car, there are basically two ways of going about it: privately or through a dealership. Going at it privately is time-consuming and can be very frustrating. You will have to take calls from countless potential buyers who may all possibly end up as “duds”. There is also a considerable safety risk of inviting strangers into your home or office to have a look at your car.
The better option is to go straight to a reputable dealership such as Citton Cars, who specialises in taking the hassle out of selling your car. Our outlets in Pretoria have been selling used cars for more than 30 years, and we guarantee to make it as painless as possible for sellers. Our business managers provide a safe and friendly environment in which all the transactions can take place – risk-free. Furthermore, we will take one of your treasured possessions off your hands and treat it with the same care as you did for many years.
Let’s look at answering some of the questions you may have about letting your car go:

When should I decide to sell my car?

The decision to sell your car is mainly personal. You may like the latest model released on the market or your requirements have changed and now you need a larger or even smaller car to get around. The key, as difficult as it seems, is that you shouldn’t let sentimentality make you hang onto a car longer than you should. Instead, ask yourself this: What is your older model car currently costing you? Is it heavy on fuel consumption? Are the maintenance costs high and the warranty running out? If you answer “yes” to most of these questions, it is probably time to reset the odometer and sell your car with a kiss and a wave.

What is the value of my car?

What you could get for your car is determined by your location, the condition of the car, and the current market conditions. In order for us to value your car suitably, you will need to bring it to one of our branches in Pretoria. You may call to make a valuation appointment or complete our easy online form – Sell your car. Start Now!. We will price your car by taking into consideration recent sales figures of similar cars at our showrooms.
Other factors that also contribute to the final selling price of your car include:

  • Kilometres on the clock
  • Year model
  • Up-to-date service records
  • Modifications
  • Structural damages or rust
  • General wear and tear

At Citton Cars, we have a specific set of criteria for buying pre-owned cars.
Your car:

  • should be six years or younger
  • should have no more than 130 000 km on the clock
  • must have a full-service history
  • must be accident-free and without fundamental damage

Our business managers will assess your car for free. It takes around 30 to 45 minutes, after which we will be able to make you an offer. It is also good to know that Citton Cars pays top prices for vehicles that are still covered by their manufacturers’ warranties and service/maintenance plans.

What paperwork do I need to provide?

To sell your car, you will need to provide us with registration papers, a service history, and your bank account details for payment. Remember to bring along all available records and receipts of past services, as well as any other work done on the vehicle. This will significantly improve your chances of attaining a higher offer.
We also require the vehicle’s proof of purchase or settlement contract. If you still owe money, it will help to produce a pay-out letter to speed up the process. Alternatively, our friendly staff will assist you to obtain the necessary documentation.

How long does it take me to get paid?

We make instant payment into your bank account on the same day that we assessed your car. If the car is still under a financing contract, we can arrange to pay out the lender directly. Citton Cars is approved by all the major banks, which make our transactions 100% risk-free.
