Purchasing a used car ? In London Ontario . Tips that can help !! Or call Ricky Ratchets Auto Repair . 519-455-5351 

It’s Sunday morning and you’re scrolling through the online classifieds looking for a car. You find a private sale that sparks your interest—“for sale by owner.” What do you do next? Before looking at a car, get educated. Do your research to protect yourself. Here are some tips for buying a car privately in Ontario.
UVIP Report

Carefully Review the Used Vehicle Information Package (UVIP)

When selling a vehicle privately, the seller must provide a Used Vehicle Information Package (UVIP) to the purchaser. This package will contain:

Ontario registration history; current registered owner and vehicle ownership history

Lien information

Past odometer readings

Estimated fair market value of the vehicle

Take A Thorough Test Drive

It is important to take the vehicle on a thorough test drive—don’t just take it around the block, take it on the highway to establish if there are any issues when driving at higher speeds.

Car History ReportObtain A History Report

History reports are a great tool. They often contain vital information including:

Disclosed accident repairs

Lien information (dependent on report)

Previous registration information; if the vehicle has been registered in another jurisdiction (a province or state outside of Ontario)

Carfax and Carproof are the two history reports available to consumers and both reports are available online. Recently CTV Consumer Alert’s Pat Foran aired a story outlining the valuable information these reports provide. Click here to watch.

Inspect Vehicle

Get A Mechanical Inspection

A mechanical inspection can help to identify problems or issues that the seller hasn’t disclosed, or may not even know about. So, take the vehicle to get inspected as the results could influence your decision to buy or lead to a re-negotiation of the price.

Avoid Curbsiders

Curbsiders are illegal, unlicensed dealers who pose as private sellers and cause a serious threat to consumers – so when purchasing a vehicle privately, be certain that you turn on your Creepometer.

Remember, consumer protection laws only apply if you purchase a car from an OMVIC-Registered Dealer. If something goes wrong with your private purchase, you’re on your own with little recourse (other than to sue civilly). So, if you choose to buy privately be informed and do your research.

      10 Steps for Selling Your Car
      Step 1: Gather Your Car’s Information

      Step 2: Know Your Car’s True Condition

      Step 3: Decide Whether to Trade-in or Sell Yourself

      Step 4: Increase Your Car’s Resale Value

      Step 5: Set the Asking Price for Your Car

      Step 6: Create an Online Ad That Sells

      Step 7: Screen Potential Buyers

      Step 8: Use the Test Drive to Sell

      Step 9: Negotiate the Best Price for Your Car

      Step 10: Complete the Sale

      Whether you’re looking to unload your car quickly or get the best offer for it, it’s smart to start with a little preparation. Kijij is here to help, with tools and information for every step of the process: from determining your car’s value to setting your asking price to getting a firm online offer.
      1Gather Your Car’s Information

      Many people overlook this step until the very end, but the selling process really starts with rounding up your paper work. The car’s title, service records and original sales paperwork are the big three.

      Here’s why: While you may already know the basics (year, make, model, current mileage), you’ll need to know your car’s style (not just a 2003 Honda Accord, but a 2003 Honda Accord LX) along with optional features like keyless entry, a CD player, leather seats or navigation system. Options can bump up your car’s resale value, so be sure you have a complete list. If you want to see if you missed anything, check your original sales documents or the window sticker.
      Finally, gather up as many maintenance receipts as you can find. “These days, regular oil changes are an even better indication of good upkeep than tune-ups,” says Dan Ingle, Kelley Blue Book’s Vice President of Vehicle Valuations and Industry Products. “If you changed your oil every 3,000-8,000 miles, in keeping with the manufacturer’s recommendations, that’s a good signal to a buyer that the car has been cared for.”
      Tip:

      If you don’t have your service receipts, ask your dealer, regular mechanic or oil change center if they can print a statement that summarizes your visits. This kind of information reassures a buyer that the car is in good shape, which can help you get a higher price.
      Next Step 2: Know Your Car’s True Condition

      You may think your car “drives like new” and shines like a baby seal, but its value will depend on its actual condition, so you’ll need to be both knowledgeable and realistic about it.
      Owners tend to overestimate the value of their car, which can lead to unrealistic expectations. If you ultimately set your asking price too high, you’ll probably have more trouble selling it. Consider going to your mechanic for an assessment. He/she can identify problems with the engine, plus things you may overlook, like a broken tail light or features you don’t use.

      A pre-sell inspection can be worth the investment because:
      You’ll arm yourself with the information a buyer will find if they do their own inspection

      A recent inspection will put buyers at ease and may even head off a buyer’s need to have the car inspected on their own

      Or to get a sense of your car’s true condition on your own, start with a call to Rick at 519-455-5351
