If you’re looking to sell your motorbike, you could go the
traditional route and advertise the bike locally, but more and more people are
choosing to sell online.
Not only is it much easier to sell your bike online, but you
can reach so many more people, meaning the sale will inevitably get pushed
While you may get more money selling privately, it can be a
time consuming and expensive process, and the speed and ease that online
We’re going to run through your options when it comes to
selling a motorcycle online to try and help you find out which might be best
The three main options when it comes to selling your motorbike are online through a bike buying service such as We Want Your Motorbike, privately, or through a part-exchange deal. Here, we’re quickly going to run through the pros and cons of each.
Whether doing so locally or through sites such as eBay,
Autotrader or Gumtree, selling privately is usually the first thing that comes
to people’s minds.
Doing so gives you complete control over the sale of the
bike, including the price, but there are plenty of downsides too.
Firstly, selling privately can take a lot longer, as you’ll
have to meet up with potential buyers to show them the bike and, unfortunately,
a lot of these can wind up to be a waste of time.
Even when you do eventually find a buyer, there’s also a
very good chance that you won’t get the price that you initially set out
achieve, as most buyers will expect to be able to haggle you down on the price!
There’s also always the risk that you could wind up getting
scammed, which would of course, be a disaster.
However, if you’re happy to look past these issues, you
probably will receive a better price for the bike if you do decide to sell
privately, although you’ll still have to take into account the listing fee that
sites such as eBay and AutoTrader charge you every time you relist the bike.
Selling your bike online through a motorbike buying service
such as We Want Your Motorbike is quickly becoming the preferred way to sell.
Not only is selling online quick and simple, but it’s also completely safe and
The process is incredibly simple, as all you have to do is
enter your registration and some basic details and you can have a valuation in
under 24 hours.
Then, if you choose to accept the offer, we can pick the
bike up within another 24 hours and have the money in your account before we’ve
even taken the bike away.
Our customers find this a much quicker and easier way to
complete the sale, and while it might not net you the same price as selling
privately, is it really worth all that hassle?
Some dealers will offer part-exchange deals, which do give
you some of the simplicity and ease that a bike buying service would (they’ll
take your bike off your hands and bring you a new one), but the prices that
you’ll be offered aren’t the best, and the chances are that you get yourself a
much better deal by selling your bike with us and using the cash to walk into
that same dealership and buy yourself a new bike.
If you are looking to buy a new motorbike, why not sell with us, then you can head to
the dealer or private seller knowing that you have that cash in hand, ready to
negotiate the best deal possible on the new bike.

I was pleasantly
I was pleasantly surprised when I phoned them for valuation
the attitude and pleasantness of the salespeople were brilliant and the speed
in which the sale took place.
We were offered good prices on two bikes and received the
full price for both. The whole process was open and easy from the initial
contact with Matt to Phil collecting the bikes. Everything was clearly
explained and the money was transferred to our bank account before the bikes
were taken. You can be sure that you will receive great service from this
company. Just ensure that they get an honest description of the bike from you
and everything will go as smoothly as you would wish. We wouldn’t hesitate to
deal with them again.
Great way to sell
I went online and was phoned back; we went through a check
of the condition of my bike plus mileage and service history. l was then made a
fair offer which l accepted and arrangements were made to inspect the bike. The
inspection was carried out and the money transferred to my bank account before
the bike was taken (no charge for collection). I would definitely recommend
Recently sold my
Yamaha XV 950…
Recently sold my Yamaha XV 950 to We Want Your Motorbike,
totally painless. I put my bike details on their website and got a quote which
I was happy about. A date to pick up the bike was arranged, Alan inspected the
XV, the agreed amount was paid into my bank account, and the bike was loaded
into the van. Really easy and straightforward and would recommend this company.
From ringing up in the morning, to having my money & the
bike in the back of their van, took about 5 hours. Amazingly quick &
simple. I would have liked more for my bike, but I felt that was offset by the
fast sale. No time wasted advertising & being messed about by time wasters
& tyre kickers. I’d certainly use them again.
So, if you want a stress-free and quick sale, the best place to sell your bike is here at We Want Your Motorbike.
