Reduce the price far more than you think you need to
In last week that asset of yours (car) will become your biggest liability.

Take it to a dealer and prepare yourself for a shock offer.

Re: Options for unsold car?

Of course with typical EF economy, you haven't stated which car you have.

If it is in a very poor condition, then maybe one of these car wreckers?

You need 10 posts first.

For the original question, pass it on to a friend to sell, and give them a cut.

Re: Options for unsold car?

There are alot of small companies that buy used cars for export. They usually take anything for about 500 CHF. I get ads from these people all the time in my mailbox or under the wiper-blade of my car (I kind of took it as a hint that maybe it's time for me to buy a new car )

Re: Options for unsold car?

Place it as a classified Ad on Ricardo and prepare for an interesting day. I advertised a car recently and had calls from around Switzerland, Bulgaria, Estonia, and Poland.
