“First of all my parents did not want me to be hounded by random men basically,” Margaret selling her car.
Things to Watch for When Selling a Used Car
There are just too many things that can go terribly wrong with a private-party sale when a woman places an ad to sell her used car:
Your Cell Phone Number: As a woman selling a used car, the LAST thing you want is to have a stalker having your cel phone. When you place an ad, at some point you are going to have to be contacted. At the very least that means giving up your cel phone number. This means that all these prospective buyers, most of them men, will have your cel phone number…FOREVER. Nobody wants to go through the hassle of changing your cel phone number.
Your Personal Safety: Recently, a man in Los Angeles who was killed selling his Audi by someone who responded to his ad selling a used car on Craigslist. Don’t let this be you.
The Test Drive: Do you really want to be in the confined space of your car at the mercy a complete stranger?
Getting Paid Safely: Cashier’s checks can be stopped, a personal check is out of the question. This means the counting out of green cash only when selling a used car with a stranger and the risks involved.
Your Liability: With DMV budget cuts, the “Release of Liability” tear-off on your title now takes months to reach DMV’s central records during which time the car you sold could be acquiring tickets which can result in a court appearance by you to prove when you sold it.

Dennis Goddard: Margaret tell us about this car that you are selling today.
Margaret: I am selling a Honda its 24 years old almost as old as I am. I was nervous about the whole process because I did not want some random people coming into my home and asking me a ton of questions. Invading that space, so I found you guys online and was relieved to do so.
Dennis: How come you are selling a used car?
Margaret: Well its a good car it works properly and treated me well but there are a couple things with it like no AC that were sort of a problem for me so I decided to upgrade.
Dennis: Awesome, Margaret how did you hear about Dennis at Dennis Buys Cars?
Margaret: I do not remember exactly what I searched on Google. I think it must have been “Los Angeles Selling Used Car” and you were the first one that came up and there were great reviews. The website was really lovely it looked like a reputable place. I figured I can trust you guys.
Dennis Goddard: So tell us why you chose coming to a dealer as opposed to trying to sell your car privately.
