How do you prefer to sell your cars?

What is the most popular way to sell your used cars?

Do you sell on your own(person to person), sell to independent companies or to dealers when you buy a new car from there?

Also is selling person to person easy or difficult?

Re: How do you prefer to sell your cars?

Except for one car that I gave away to a hitchhiker, and one that I traded in to a garage when buying a new one, I've sold all my cars person to person quite easily.
In the case of one classic car that I put into an auction, the purchaser found my details from a friend in the auction house, and then contacted me directly to make a private purchase.
In the case of the 2-seater sports car that my wife drove before our first child arrived, the vehicle was bought by a young man from Geneva who paid the entire sum in CHF 50 notes…
The only case where there was a problem was when the Brazilian lady who had just bought a car from me on a hot and humid day telephoned in a rage to say that she wanted her money back because she had seen drops of water under it. All became OK when I showed her that it was condensation water from the air conditioner drain.
