Still, for some the act of writing a huge, War And Peace-style essay and taking hundreds of photos just to get rid of a car that might take weeks to sell is an almighty hassle, so auction company Copart's new iPhone App may be just what you need.
"Our customers have told us they want a simple, hassle-free way to sell their cars," said Copart, Inc. CEO Jay Adair. To this end, the Copart Sell My Car app is designed to make the process of selling your vehicle faster and easier.
Using the company's CopartDirect system, sellers submit contact and vehicle information details and upload photos. A representative from Copart will then respond with any follow-up questions, or an offer to purchase the vehicle immediately.
When an offer has been made, you simply drop off your car at one of Copart's 137 locations nationwide or even have a Copart team member pick it up from where you are. All this happens within one business day, and you get paid instantly.
If you're looking for a little more money, you also have the option to sell the car via Copart's auction model, where registered Copart buyers around the world can place their bids.
The app is available for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad from the Apple store, and unlike selling on an internet auction or sales site, it's completely free...
