Best ways to sell tow vehicle?

Have upgraded to a 2021 F-350 King Ranch diesel SRW. Sadly, must now sell the 2015 F-250 King Ranch diesel with 96K miles. It's been a long time since I've sold a vehicle. What has worked best for you - EBay, Craig's List, Facebook, etc? Many thanks.

E bay u will pay fees, Facebook and Craigslist there are none. Not vehicles, but I had good responses on Craigslist last 2 5er's I sold. Start with free sites and see what happens.

i'm surprised you didn't get a great offer on your old truck... here not sure your location but you also get the sales tax reduced on the buy based on the trade in... IMO that is the best way to deal with it.. there isn't much money when you figure in the tax credit...

Good luck...

make sure that you wait 4 days for payment to clear or better yet go to the finance place to validate the money.. then make sure you get the title work done.

It wasn’t a tow vehicle, but I recently sold the in-laws’ car on Craigslist after getting a KBB instant quote and checking with a couple of local dealers. I detailed it and took good pictures to show its great condition. I’ve had good luck with CL. There are the usual scammers but just use common sense. Sold it in a week. Nice used trucks like yours should go quickly and for plenty. Do your homework on price — they are crazy high now.

You might even want to see what a dealer will offer. Trade-in offers also are sky high and it might be worth taking to avoid dealing with private buyers.

See what a place like CarMax will give you. The crazy prices right now mean you could get a decent payout.

My personal experience with Carmax was that they lowball you even when your vehicle is pristine.

X2 ON Craigslist. Just be careful, meet in a public place, NOT your home or theirs. I meet a prospective buyer at my local police station. If they balk, I walk.

Truck prices are insane right now. Do your homework on the current market and you should be able to sell for a nice price.

Good luck and congrats on the new ride. It's awesome.

X2. But keep in mind they will be lower than what you’d likely get from a private party or a trade in if you were going that route. We just bought a new SUV for DW and the Carmax quote on her old SUV was 10% less than what I wrangled as a trade-in from the dealer. It was a 2015 CR-V EX-L with less than 35k miles. They were drooling. I’m sure a CL sale would have brought more, but also more hassle.

We just sold two vehicles to Echo Park which is mostly a southeast US chain. They were very near what we thought we could get selling direct to a private party. Fast and clean deal without any stress.

Thanks for all the great suggestions - many of these I would not have thought of. Based on my rough analysis of available pricing data, I think $53,500 would be a fair price, given that I switched out to a 60 gal fuel tank. Wish me luck!

I sold my wife's truck on FB marketplace and it sold in a week and that was before the current situation. I'm sure I could sell it in a day now. Ask a bit more than you want so you have some wiggle room.

I recently sold a vehicle on FB marketplace. About 2 days. Make sure you ask plenty. The day after I had committed to sell to someone for $23k I had an offer of $25k. I was really hoping the first person wouldn't show up Monday morning. They did.

In my experience CL and Facebook marketplace is a good place for vehicles under 25k or so. Over 25k they tend to sit. I sold my last car with kbb instant cash offer. I went to the highest offered dealer and negotiated another $1800. It was easy and done in about an hour. They want the used vehicles in a bad way. They can't get new for the lots so they pay tip dollar just to have a vehicle on the lot. 2015 diesel with close to 100k on the clock good luck getting $50k+ and its highly unlikely on CL or FB. In my area 2015 f250 I can get all day in the low 40's even a few in the upper 30's. But I definitely wish you luck. I hope you can get that.

selling your truck

I sold my mazda5 by putting a for sale sign, and a list of details, and parked it in a highly visible spot by a busy road. Sold it in 2 days, got cash to make me happy. And remember, folks with no valid OL don't drive it. CASH, and take a friend, even if it's only Mr. Smith or Mr. Wesson. Full price or no dice. (You're not a bank, are you?) Bring it back to your house when it gets dark. You will be fine, unless you live in high crime area. The vroom, carmax, "we come to your house and pay cash for your car" will rip you off. I sold a car that way, but it also had ghost like electrical issues. I didn't want to sell it to a person, so I sold it to a company and they can deal with it.

Sold! Just thought I'd pass along the end of the story. First tried eBay since I'd had success finding vehicles there. Got some bidding action but never got higher than $33,502. Got a Vroom offer price of $36,133 - disappointing. Next tried AutoTrader - a few views, no legitimate inquiries. My better half is on Facebook, so put up on Facebook Marketplace on a Monday, started getting immediate inquiries. Sold on that Friday for $50,500 to a local young man who had found the truck of his dreams. (His Facebook page looked legit, so I was comfortable meeting at home.) Still hard to believe the truck sold for more that the purchase price in April 2016. Thanks for all the advice. Really appreciate this forum.

Appreciate your posting back. It paid off well for you to hold out for a fair price.
