How can I sell my car in illinois?

I'm moving to Chicago this fall to attend college, and unfortunately, I can’t afford to keep a car in the city. I’m looking to sell it, but I’m not sure where to start. How do you sell a car in Illinois?

Answer
Congratulations on your college admission! Luckily for you, selling your car is straightforward in Illinois.
Initially, you should allow your buyer to come inspect your vehicle, or have it inspected by a third party so that they can be comfortable with the purchase.
If the inspection goes well and the buyer seems interested, you should do a **deep clean of the vehicle in order to make it look brand new, or as close to brand new as possible.
Next, remove the license plates. After this, you’ll want to prepare bills of sale for both yourself and the buyer, so you both have clear records of the transaction.
After you receive payment for your buyer, it is advised to sign over the title to them. After this process, you can hand over the keys, and you’ll be all set!
