  1. hi all...

    really wanting to get my car sold so i can buy my bike....

    here it is... the silly question...

    do any motorcycle dealers trade in or help you trade in your car?

    dont be too harsh :oops: :oops: :oops:
  2. in Sydney some do just gotts hunt them down
  3. Not that I've heard about, you might have to do some investigation and see if the owner of a bike dealership is also involved in car dealerships, they might sell on consignment. Advertise the car for sale or part trade for a bike???

    Whatever happens, don't over extend yourself financially it'll only spoil the riding later.


    (BTW, only silly question is the one you don't ask :wink: )
  4. Advertise the car in the trading post or on e-bay with cash in your pocket you'll be in a much better position to negotiate a gr8 deal on the bike & don't forget the gear!
  5. Selling vehicles on consignment is illegal.

    You don't want to have a bike dealer trade in your car, you will lose at least $4K.

    As an earlier poster said, armed with more money in your hand you stand a better chance of getting a better deal.
  6. Not in Tas, the bike I bought was a consignment sale AFAIK, don't think it was in NSW or SA when I lived there either. (I know he's from Vic, poor bugger :wink: )

    But you'll always get the best $$$ selling private, and buying with cash.

    Be patient grasshopper :)

  7. There is actually a consignment yard in adeladie, where all the cars in the yard are on consignment.. (some bargains to be had too)

  8. hehe

    yes yes.. i will be patient.

    cheers all

    ill let you know when i have my two wheels of freedom : )
  9. Sorry, I had every intention to say that it's illegal in Victoria at least.

    I forgot.
  10. Pfft.. no apology required, your comment was relevant to the posters situation. The important points we all agree on is patience and sell private is the best option. :D
