    Selling car, what's it worth?

    So I'm selling a car (no, not the M3). How can I find out how much it is worth (in Alberta)?

    Obviously I want to maximize how much I get for it. I want to know what top dollar I can get trading it in at a dealer or how much I could sell it privately. Any suggestions?

    TIA

    Here is how I bought my car

    I have never sold a car, but I would use the same process to find a fair asking price.

    Then it's marketing man.. You gotta take good pics and put just the right amount of text in your auto trader ad. Park the car in a busy place with a "For Sale" sign on it. Word of mouth is also good, let people know you're selling something and you'll be surprised how many hits you get.


    Here is how you shop for a used car

    Thanks man! Great write up...

    Some very good ideas in there. I've started looking at autotrader to get an idea of what my car is worth in the market.

    I've also heard about this Kellys blue book, but can't find any Canadian online references. I'll look for it at the bookstore...

    Hey, my boss (and guy who funds my company) is in town this week. Gotta keep him entertained. Lots of bars and restaurants to take in this week! Haha!! Let's hook up for drinks next week. Take it easy man..

    I've never sold one privately but I would do like HU says. If you keep your eyes on Autotrader and maybe GlobeMegawheels(not great in Alberta) for a while it will give you an idea what everyone else is asking and can get a ballpark figure that way.

    I may be around after Wednesday. It looks like

    I have to go into the office while my supervisor at one of the companies goes on holidays. I usually work in the field so it will be a bit of a change. Did you try out the Mother's Clay Bar? I ended up buying one but haven't used it yet.
