what to do when I need to move but I did not manage to sell my car yet?

Does anybody have a clue what I can do when I have not been able to sell my car yet and I need to move next week to the US?
I already tried several dealerships but they offer almost no money for the car. I also posted on ricardo and autoscout24.

Second hand prices are very low. European governments offered a bonus to buy a new car, and now there are too many old ones.

Just sell it cheap, or give it away here.

What kind of car do you have & how much are you selling it for?

Here is the autoscout24 link. Price is negotiable.

You can sell it to those guys that leave business cards on your window to take your car from you that say all cars considered. You wont get much I guess but you arent asking much. I only thought of this as I got one this week left on my car. I can have a look for it tomorrow if you like, send me a PM to remember to do it.

As a complete, good running, car, these people will buy it from you,

http://www.autobuchs.ch/index2.php

You take, or post, the number plates to the Strassenvekehrsamt, and they inform your insurance company for a rebate, and also pay you back the remaining road tax.

Thank you for all the great advice. I went to Autobuchs today but unfortunately they are also just offering 1/3 of the price the car is worth.

If you need to sell your car in a hurry then it's worth what anyone is willing to pay you for it.

Well if you did not mentionned that you were leaving then maybe you would have sold it...

The potential buyers might have used that info to haggle and squeeze you a few thousands CHF as you are "in urgent need" of selling it...
