    How to sell my car

    Should you sell your petrol car today?

    We know that when it comes to selling your petrol car, price is going to be a big factor. But finding a great deal can be stressful and long winded – especially if you’re going from dealership to dealership or running endless negotiations with private buyers that don’t end up in a sale.

    It’s difficult to say for sure if you should sell your petrol car now. However, it is likely that the cost of fossil fuels, like petrol, will increase as the UK moves closer to the 2035 electric switchover and fewer consumers are likely to want to buy petrol vehicles. Fuel companies are also expected to raise prices to recoup their money as traditional fossil fuels become less desirable. 

    Even if there is a surge in sales of petrol and diesel cars in the run up to the switchover, drivers of electric vehicles (EVs) will still not have to pay road tax, will avoid congestion charge costs, and will spend much less money refuelling their cars – and all these factors are likely to have a negative impact on the prices of petrol vehicles. So, it might be a good idea to sell your petrol car before we get too close to the switchover date.
