The memories a person makes with their car over a lifetime is priceless. Your first kiss, your first movie or even your first handbrake turn after having a few too many with the boys. Unfortunately, a car does not last forever, and there comes a time in every person’s life when it is time to swap your car for some new wheels, and it can be quite an intimidating process.
A lot of people have bought a car before. Whether it was your first car when you turned 18 or that dream 5.0-liter V8 you bought later in life. But not a lot of people have sold a car before. First off, there are four main ways of selling your car: The first is to sell your car privately, meaning being in control from the start, choosing a buyer, and ensuring that you are the sole decision maker through every part of the deal. The second way is selling to a dealership like We Buy Wheels. This method of selling is by far the easiest and the ensures that you find a good price for your car. They will often come to you and ensure that the deal gets done quickly and that all the necessary paperwork gets done correctly. The third option you have is by doing a trade-in on your vehicle. This allows you to essentially swap your car for another vehicle, but you will not really know how much you were offered for your car. And the last way of selling your car will be through an auction. This is by far the riskiest way of selling, as you have absolutely no control on the price you will get for your car, and most of the buyers at these auctions are buyers for dealerships anyways.
It is advised that you research each method of selling your car, as they all have their own benefits and disadvantages. From the price you can get, to the amount of paperwork and legalities that you need to consider.
One thing that remains the same for all these transactions though is the documentation that you require when selling. These 8 documents listed below will always be required when selling your car, and without them you expose yourself to fraudsters and legal trouble down the line:

This article should serve you as a basic guide when looking to sell your vehicle, but bear in mind that many of these requirements might change based on what you are looking to sell. For example, here at We Buy Wheels, we also buy non-runners so a lot of the documents might not be necessary i.e. The roadworthy certificate. So, if you’ve made the decision to sell, at We Buy Wheels the process is extremely simple. One of our friendly buyers will come right to your doorstep, inspect the vehicle, make an offer, and pay you on the spot for the car. Its as easy as that!

Our founding member started following his passion for vehicles in 1994. Working as a part time Entrepreneur and a full time car enthusiast. In the spare time he had, he would buy non running vehicles and rebuild and restore them from the ground up. In 2006 he shifted his attention to vehicles full time, working with his son who was still a high school student at the time .They started handing out flyers and advertising on street lamps and working off other dealer’s floors. With the majority of the vehicles bought from vehicle Auctions and a small portion from the public.
In 2014 the father and son duo bought their first floor in Zambezi drive Montana. With a staff of only 4 people, they had now shifted their focus from auction vehicles to solely servicing the public, times were tough with a very small client base as they were relatively unknown. In 2016 they made the We Buy Wheels name known, advertising on their 1st radio station, and a small online presence. Fast forward to 2020 with multiple radio stations, billboards, a huge online presence and thousands of happy clients they are now a force to be reckoned with as one of the top buying services in Gauteng and Northwest province. They are second to none when it comes to client service, speed and quality. With the next few years looking brighter than ever with branches planned in Cape Town, KZN, Free-state and Mpumalanga, we aim to be the top buying company in South Africa .WATCH THE SPACE !!
