unnamed 9 896x738 1 List yourself or sell to a Dealer? 5 things to consider.

When it’s time to sell your car, the first step is to decide whether to list it yourself or sell it to a dealer. We’ve discovered five ways Driver’s Way located in Pelham and off Highway 280 in front of the Lee Branch Shopping Center makes the decision a no-brainer. Read on for details.

1. They don’t require appointments.

One of the most frustrating parts of listing a car is having to schedule times to meet prospective buyers. Not only is everyone’s schedule different, but you may even encounter “no shows.” Bleh—talk about a waste of time. 

Sure, you can schedule an appointment if you’d like, but Driver’s Way doesn’t require it. They know Birmingham is filled with movers and shakers who are always on the move. So simply drive up, make a sale and get back to being the Birmingham influencer you are. How much easier can it get?

2. They take care of all the paperwork.

Listing your car may or may not be the safest route. Meeting prospective buyers at your home or in a random parking lot can be a bit sketchy. Not to mention, what if they wreck your car during a test drive? Are you prepared to pay to fix the damages if they don’t have insurance?

The safety of yourself and the car you are selling is essential, so opt for the safest plan—selling your car to Driver’s Way

4. They remove the risk of scams + scammers.
