If you’re reading this, chances are probably good that you currently own a Kia and are thinking of selling it. Kia was founded in 1952 in South Korea, and was originally a Honda licensed small motorcycle builder. It was also a Mazda licensed truck builder until 1973, when it opened its automotive assembly plant. In 1986, Kia Motors joined forces with Ford to produce several Mazda trucks and cars, until it declared bankruptcy in 1997. It came back strong in 1998 when Hyundai Motor Company purchased 51% of Kia Motors. Today Kia vehicles are found on every road in America. Kia’s popularity is due to its excellent fuel efficiency and modern styling. So why shouldn’t you get the most when you sell your Kia for cash?
How to Sell Your Kia
Selling your used Kia may not be as easy as you think. Tradition may lead you to believe that taking your car to a Kia dealership would be a good option. After all, they sell and service Kia vehicles so they know the value of a great Kia like yours, right? Actually, most dealerships have a substantial overhead cost. This means that the building, the employees, the benefits for their employees, and the expensive but catchy radio and TV ads that bombard the airwaves of your daily commute, all factor into how much they can offer you. The most an auto dealership may do is give you the best trade-in value for your Kia even if you are not trading it in for another vehicle.
A second option is to find a direct car buyer. This is a bit tricky as well because some dealerships say they are direct car buyers, but are not. An auto dealership may claim to be a “direct car buyer” but have an advertising message that is contrary saying, “We’ll buy your car even if you don’t buy ours.” This is a car dealer buying at trade-in value, a lower vehicle value, and selling your Kia at a retail price, a higher value, the next day.
The third option, selling your Kia online or on a mobile app, may seem the most appealing to you at first but there is a trade-off, your valuable time. Most Kia owners will clean their vehicle to impress potential car buyers. Then you will want to take some great photos of your Kia and write an online or in an app ad that will have them begging to come see your sweet ride. But that’s not the hard part. You will now need to set aside your weekends and personal downtime to meet strangers who might try to haggle your car’s value and price.
