To sell a 1989 Suzuki Samurai, the owner can list it on a classified site, such as AutoTrader, eBay Classifieds or Craigslist, as of 2015. Other options include selling the car to CarMax or placing a "For Sale" sign in the window.
AutoTrader and eBay Classifieds charge fees to place an ad. Fees vary based on the ad options the owner selects. Craigslist doesn't charge any fees to place an ad.
CarMax buys any car. The owner must take the car into a CarMax location, where an appraiser inspects and drives the car. The appraiser then provides the owner with a written appraisal that is valid for seven days at any CarMax location. After seven days, the owner can get another appraisal for the car.
To sell the car quickly, the owner should list it on multiple classified sites. He should include multiple pictures from different angles, and provide a detailed description of the car that lists any issues it has.
When pricing the car, the owner should look up its value and check other listings for that car in the area. Common pricing terms used in car ads include "OBO," "asking price" and "firm." "OBO," which stands for "or best offer," indicates the owner may accept lower offers. "Asking price" is similar, indicating that the owner is asking for that price but is also flexible. "Firm" indicates the owner doesn't plan to negotiate on the price.
