Place to park my car while I sell it (Basel)

Hi All,

I'm looking forward for a place to park my car while I'm selling it.

I got a new car and I still have the previous one. I would like to take out the plates and for that I can't park it on the street.

Do you know about any kind of place like that?

Normal garages are too expensive for the money I would get for the car. So I'l looking for something cheap.

Thanks to all in advance

Cheers

Martin

If you take the plates off you will save a little money each month, but you won't be able to give anyone a test drive, nor deliver it. Is it really worth that disadvantage? I certainly would not buy a car without test driving it.

You can put 2 cars on 1 plate (& insurance)- given that you will never drive both at the same time, this could be an option for a "plate-less" car. You could then check with the authorities what the options are re street parking...

Parking on the street is never permitted without plates. Hence the OPs question.

Hi, Thanks for your answers.
At the moment I'm sharing the plates. But I have my Car at a friends Garage and I would like to bring it somewhere else.
That's the why I would like to rent a space or something similar.

You can lower the price so that you sell quicker.
Just make sure that yours is the cheapest one on autoscout compared to its peers.
