    "I thought this site was very organized and very clearly broke down each step of the process of selling a car and suggestions to make your car more appealing to a buyer. I liked how each category or step of the process was clearly named and the site was full of information and some pictures without looking cluttered or overwhelming. Definitely a helpful site when selling (or even buyer) a car."

    "My old Ford F150 had to go, since I just bought a Nissan Titan. But my Ford was the first truck I ever had, and I had no idea where to start to get her sold. I had some interest, but my brother kept telling me to be careful about scammers, and even letting people test-drive the F150. However, the tips I read here made it easy, and I knew what questions I had to ask, what I'm going to answer, and how to get the title transferred and all that. I hope the next owner loves that F150 as much as I did."

    "AutoScout 24 was useful to me because not only does it let me buy cars it also lets me sell cars as well. I can list my car on this app and get a lot of feedback from it because it's mainly used for used cars. People download apps all the time and this app makes it easy to list my car, set the filters and options I want, and get a good amount of people to see it and potentially make some money. This is a great resource for the used vehicle market."

    "I had I car I needed to sell, but no idea where to start! You may have a similar problem! Here is how I solved it! I went to youtube and typed in "how to sell a car" and clicked on one of the results, "How to Sell a Car" by "Howcast." It had 64k views even though the channel has 5 million subscribers, so I know it is quality. It was very helpful and had a lot of helpful advice, such as "make sure you receive money in exchange for your car". The money can be cash, a check, a cashier's check, a wire transfers, or other forms of money. A car is generally a car. Thanks for the tips!"

    "I had a rare car to sell and I wasn't impressed with the offers I got from services like Craigslist. I needed to reach a wider audience of potential buyers. Ebay seemed like a good idea but I was terrified of both the logistics of setting up a sale and the possibility of making a bad listing that gets no attention or offers. This short eBook walked me through the process and convinced me to give it a shot. Turns out all my fears were unfounded. With the tips outlined in this book I sold the car for double my previous best offer."

    "The Kelley Blue Book has been around for several decades, and it's easy to see why it has endured. It's written in layman's terms so it can serve everyone, including myself who I would hardly consider a car expert. The Kelley Blue Book website comes with a lot of resources to help sell a car. I can sell quickly through Kelley's Instant Cash Offer feature, or I can place an ad that reaches potential buyers on KBB.com and AutoTrader. There are also articles that provide tips for sellers and buyers alike. "

    "The biggest issue with selling and trading cars has been price promises, where as Kelly blue book has a specific price point, even that is not hardly promised that the car will be purchased at that price, an estimate price based on vehicle would be nice to have"

    "This seems to be a good platform for selling a car. But, I believe there are options that are immensely more popular, such as craigslist or ebay. They are well known and already provide all the solutions this page offers in an easier to use manner. I believe this could be a good app, but it needs some work to get there."

    Written on February 18, 2017
    "This site seems to have what is needed from Kelly Blue Book info to Yelp reviews. It does start off stating they don't normally do trade-ins but they realize people have that need, so that is a bit off putting. but like I say it appears to have the "how to's" covered. There is an instant cash offer button as well so, if I were in the market it is something I would read more. "
