The time has finally come, and you are ready to sell your motorcycle and move up to a different/better model. But, you may be wondering, “Where can I sell my motorcycle?” Well, there are several avenues available to you, and you can use one or more until you are able to find a buyer who will give you what you are asking, or very close to it.
Auto Buy & Sell Businesses
There are many businesses that will come and take your motorcycle off your hands, as well as any other old vehicles you don’t want any more. The amount you will receive will depend on a number of factors, including whether or not the bike is roadworthy or if it is just being sold for scrap or parts.

Newspaper Classified Ads
While many people think that newspapers are a dying medium, there are still millions of people who read them, and these millions of people also read the classified ads. Chances are, some of the readers are going to be interested in the motorcycles for sale, and if you have your bike listed here, it is going to be seen. There is usually a fee involved with placing a newspaper classified ad, but it is relatively small and well worth it if you get a buyer from the ad.
Online Classified Ads
There are plenty of online classified ad websites, such as Craigslist, where you can list your bike for sale. Just be careful when doing this, because there are a lot of scammers online who are only looking for your personal information and don’t actually want to buy anything. If you do arrange a sale through an online classified ad, or any classified ad for that matter, make sure that you are careful about it. Only meet with the buyer during daylight hours, and try to meet in a public place or at least have someone with you so you are not alone with the buyer.
Depending on the age and condition of your motorcycle, you may be able to sell it through a dealership. The best way to know if this is an option is to talk to representatives from various dealerships. Either bring the motorcycle with you so they can look it over, or have plenty of photos and all of your maintenance records with you so they can get an estimate of the bike’s value before offering you a price.
Social media can be used for a lot more than keeping in touch with people. It is a great way to buy and sell just about anything. You will find all kinds of buy and sell groups, many of which specialize in motorcycles and other motor vehicles. You are apt to get a better price by selling this way than by using other classified ads, because the people who are using these pages are specifically looking for motorcycles to buy, and not just browsing.
