Where Can I Sell My Motorcycle Offline?
Selling a motorcycle offline may not be as difficult as you think. You can place a “For Sale” sign on the bike when it is parked in your yard and it is possible someone riding by may decide it is the perfect bike for them. You can also take out an ad in the classified section of your local newspaper, although you will need to pay for the ad whether the bike sells or not. If there is a bulletin board in your neighborhood where people post about lost pets or yard sales, ask if you can post a sign about your motorcycle.
Tell your friends, family and co-workers that your bike is for sale. They may know someone who is in the market.
If you are selling your bike because you want to upgrade, talk to the dealer about trading in your old bike on a new one. Keep in mind that a dealer may offer you less for the bike than you could get if you sold it yourself, but it would eliminate the hassle of selling it yourself.
Where Can I Sell My Motorcycle Online?
There are many different online options you can use to sell your bike. Craigslist is a free online advertising service, but keep in mind that some of the people who use the service are not above-board. If a buyer wants to purchase the bike from a Craigslist ad, insist on cash or certified funds at the time of the sale.
Ebay is another option for selling your bike, especially if it is unique or hard-to-find. You do not pay for listing your bike on Ebay until it sells and the buyer will pay for any shipping costs. It could be difficult, however, to find a company that will ship your bike so you want to research shipping prior to listing the bike for sale.
Recently Facebook Marketplace has become really popular for buying and selling motorcycles and motorcycle parts. You can discover bikes for sale near you. Easy to use on your phone or your desktop, and most people already have a Facebook account.
