Best Way to Sell an Unregistered Vehicle
Last edited 02/10/2019 - 13:28
I have a 2008 Corolla hatch which is a bit banged up but drives really well (only travelled 70K km).
Leaving aside a long story, the car is now unregistered and has a flat battery. Dealership trade-in offered me 2K, which seems grossly undervalue. I’m in two minds about whether I replace the battery, get the car registered and put it on carsales.com in case there’s a better alternative available to me.
What’s the best way to sell this unregistered car? Grateful for any assistance!
[EDIT]: For some extra context, I got a roadworthy certificate about two months ago and decided not to re-register as we were planning to upgrade and I didn't realise that it would be hard to sell unregistered. Also, the photos we provided to the dealer are not flattering. Given that the battery is flat, I couldn't back it out of the garage to make it look pretty…
Based on the advice so far, I am inclined to get a new battery and see how well I go with the dealership (again) and on Gumtree. Subject to that response, I may look into registering the car but that's a world of pain I would rather avoid!
