Selling your car privately during lockdowns

Many Australian states have experienced or are currently in lockdown due to COVID-19, how can you sell your car privately during this time?

How Summon can help sell your prestige car during lockdown

Used Cars in Australia have gone up in value in the past 12 months, but it’s harder than ever to sell your car privately if you are in lockdown.

With many confusing rules to contend with, plus the need to stay healthy and safe, and do the right thing - selling a car during lockdown can be a minefield.

Selling to a Dealer or wholesaler is an option, but means you get a lot less than selling privately (15% less on average).

If you want to sell your prestige car for the full retail price, Summon could help (if you are within our service areas). Our service abides by all local COVID-19 legislation, and also guarantees you a fantastic (retail) value for your car. We also do all the work for you!

How it works
For prestige cars over $50,000 in value, Summon manage the entire listing, enquiries and sale process on behalf of the customer.

Test-drives of a car are not possible during lockdown, and so we provide the potential buyer with everything they need to make an informed decision and “buy the car online”, including;

  • Professional photography (high quality photos of the exterior, interior and engine)
  • Redbook Remote Inspection (video call) - an independent quality check for the car
  • Live video (Facetime) virtual inspection of the car with the buyer and seller
  • The buyer can request an independent Pre-Purchase Inspection (a full mechanical check) prior to purchase

We complete the transaction online or via phone & email. From finance applications to trade-in appraisals, with no need to visit a dealership or office.

Once the purchase is agreed, Summon will arrange either contactless home-delivery or click-and-collect.
