However, be aware that selling to the public is not without its drawbacks.

Perhaps the biggest difficulty (or at least, potential difficulty) when selling to the public is the fact that the consumer has a lot of rights these days compared to a car dealer! As such you need to be very, very careful with the quality of goods you are selling to the public, and be vigilant about preventing complaints, liabilities, returns, refunds or even legal action.

The consumer is protected in a multitude of ways by a myriad of consumer rights groups, and even if you make a genuine mistake and sell on a faulty vehicle in good faith, the responsibility will land squarely on your shoulders.

Be aware that it is your responsibility when you become a car trader to ensure that a car is roadworthy and has no undisclosed major faults before selling it on.

Of course, this does not mean that it’s dangerous or difficult to sell to the public – far from it! Most people buying a used car from someone are not contemplating legal action! All it means is that you must take extra precautions to protect yourself AND your customers from vehicle faults.
