Want to sell your vehicle with Motorist Malaysia but are unsure if we will take in your vehicle? It's always best to contact us directly so we can help you with your concerns. Here are some points of considerations to give you a clearer understanding of the vehicles that we accept.

In this day and age, the number of services available online has steadily increased. Doctor’s appointments, yoga lessons, and even dancers have transitioned their rice bowls online by streaming on various social media platforms. 

Similarly, the used car industry has also gone online, increasing efficiency in the selling process and reducing the tedious legwork required to sell your vehicle.

One of the most common methods to sell your car online is through a third-party platform or company. Motorist Malaysia is one such example of an automotive company that has an easy-to-use website to sell your car. We do the hard bits of selling a car for you, such as loan and paperwork settlement and sourcing for potential buyers.

We’ll address some of the main concerns or questions you might have when it comes to selling your vehicle with us!

Vehicle Age

It’s no secret that newer vehicles do sell at higher prices as compared to their older counterparts (sans vintage cars of course). It's simply due to demand. A newer car is realistically more attractive and more sought after than an old one, but it does not mean that older cars don't sell well.

Yes, we accept vehicles of all ages so don’t let your car’s year of manufacture be a point of worry!

Your vehicle’s condition will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Needless to say, vehicles that are in better condition will fetch higher prices but these showroom standards are not the requirement. It’s best to contact us to get a proper valuation, free of charge!

Unsettled Loans

Many of our customers have approached us complaining about how some dealers won’t take in their vehicles because they still have outstanding loans. 

As long as the loan amount is less than the value of the car, our dealers are happy to help settle the outstanding loan as part of the process. If your loan amount is higher than the value of the car, all you have to do is settle the difference and the car can still be sold.

Unsettled Fines

Unlike loans, fines do need to be paid off before you can sell your car to us. The reason behind this is the need for the Puspakom B5 report, otherwise known as the transfer of ownership inspection. 

Outstanding fines and penalties will hinder you from being able to get the aforementioned report so please do pay them beforehand!

Ultimately, the best and most relevant advice is to arrange for a free valuation from us. That way, we can provide better advice on selling your vehicle for the highest price. Our car valuation service is entirely free and comes with no obligations! So what are you waiting for?
