Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)

What is the fastest way to sell a motorcycle?

The fastest way to sell a bike is to leverage online marketplaces like Cycle Trader, Craigslist, or eBay Motors. These platforms provide a wide reach and allow you to connect with potential buyers efficiently. Additionally, competitive pricing and presenting the motorcycle well in the listing can speed up the selling process.

When should you sell your motorcycle?

The best time to sell your motorcycle is spring, specifically from March to May. Summer is the second-best-selling season, while fall and winter should be avoided. Springtime sees a surge in motorcycle sales due to favorable weather, increased riding enthusiasm, and tax refunds that can boost potential buyers' purchasing power.

What is the best form of payment when selling a motorcycle?

The best form of payment when selling a motorcycle is to accept a cashier's check or certified check from a bank or credit union. These payment methods provide a guarantee of funds. However, being cautious of scams involving counterfeit checks or buyers attempting to seek refunds by overpaying with checks is crucial. Ensure that the amount on the check matches the agreed-upon price to avoid complications.
