5.    Always be aware of scam sellers
There are many people who easily fell prey to scam artists. Especially when they put their advertisement on the internet or any classified portal. One of the common scams is requesting the seller to accept payment by cheque or asking for a test drive. To deal with all these things, you should keep all these points in mind and then talk with your buyer.

6.    Keep your contract paper ready
You must keep your contract papers ready before a buyer shows interest in your advertisement. The contract which you will prepare must include some important points such as the model name and number of your bike, the seller address and name, the buyer’s name and address, a detail report on the present condition of the vehicle, registration number of your bike, mileage along with the extra things that you will offer with your vehicle at the time of sale. You should not forget to prepare two copies of it – one copy for you and the other one for the buyer.

7.    Always accept your payment in cash
Yes! This is probably the safest way to make transaction and counter scam issues. Always ask your buyer to pay in cash. If you need to deal with a hefty amount, make sure it is done through bank transfer which means you should not agree to receive your payment by cheque. If in any case, you have to accept a cheque, don’t hand over the possession of your vehicle to the buyer until the cheque is cleared and transferred to your account.

8.    Accessories
You will be called a smart buyer if you take out all accessories of your bike and sell them separately. This is because a buyer will not pay you extra for attaching an accessory to the bike.  On the other hand, selling those items separately can earn you few bucks.

9.    Take clear pictures of your bike
While creating the advertisement, you must have cleared photographs. Clear and colored photographs of your bike can really do wonder for you by grabbing the attention of potential buyers.

10.    Accompany the buyer for test drive
When a buyer asks you for a test drive, use your common sense and accompany the buyer to the test drive. You should never leave your buyer alone with your vehicle.
