Can any of you guys suggest the place to sell my 2014 RAM Limited? I used eBay Motors and Auto Trader and have had nothing but scammers. I figured you guy might have a better idea.

Any help is GREATLY appreciated.

This is what it looks like it.

I don’t have any good suggestions anymore, but I’ve always just ignored the scammers. I might have a good sense to tell when somebody’s full of BS or not, but anybody with common sense should be able to figure that out.

Edit: I would also suggest if using eBay to not discount people from other countries. I was selling my Aprilia RSV4R motorcycle on eBay motors, and a guy from Nigeria clicked buy it now and tried to buy my motorcycle. I canceled the order and went about my life. A week later, he messaged me saying he would still buy the motorcycle if I was selling it. I told him only if somebody in the United States completed the transaction and handled shipping. He got one of his family members in Alabama to complete the transaction and I had the money wired to me.

Just a suggestion but have you ran it through carmax, vroom or carvana and gotten a quote. You don’t have to buy from them but Carmax for me was just so much easier then dealing with regular people/tire kickers.

I don’t know how generalizable my experience is, but I sold my 2019 1500 in May or early June last year.

I got quotes from Autonation, Vroom, Carmax, and Carvana. Autonation was the highest, and I think Carmax was the lowest.

Meanwhile, I also listed it on Facebook Marketplace and Autotrader. I got very little traffic on Autotrader, but a few inquiries on Facebook. I listed it at $4K above the Autonation offer. This out it about the midpoint of KBB private sale range.

Many of them started started immediately with, “what’s the VIN?” I was a little suspicious at this directness, but I learned later that these were dealers looking to stock their lots.

Long story short, I ended up selling my truck to one of those dealers, who offered $2K more than Autonation (so $2K below my asking price). I was happy with that; it’s $9K more than I paid for the truck in 2019 (it was used with 6K miles on it at the time; I sold it with 21K miles).

Take always that might help:
  1. As others suggest, get quotes from Carmax, etc.
  2. List on Facebook Marketplace, using KBB private sale estimate as a guide
  3. If you get Facebook messages asking for the VIN, it’s likely dealers interested in buying your truck.

I sold my Grand Cherokee to Carmax and got my Ram from the same store a little while later.

Carvana is paying stupid money for trucks right now.

My father in law just sold his f150 on there for 4k more than he paid for it.

I would run them through Carmax, Vroom, Carvana, AutoNation etc. I sold my Truck to Vroom last May. My only suggestion is I would accept less if you can take it to one of those places in person. Vroom worked but the process took longer than I was comfortable with

Weird, Carvana is $5k less than Vroom for my truck

And that’s down almost $4k from less than 2 months ago

Wow. I wonder if they base it off the type of market and price of the truck. They were the highest for my Silverado as well.
