Practical Advice I Need to Sell a Car

...in Massachusetts. It's due for inspection and registration renewal at the end of the month, so if I don't get it sold by then, I'll have to cancel the insurance, etc. Canceling might be a problem if someone wants to take the car for a test drive. Due for an oil change too, but only by time, not miles.

In principle, it's a thing I could just do if I read up about the details of selling, and got the motivation to go through the steps, but I'm procrastinating with this.

depending on the rules in your state it shouldn't be a problem. how much effort you put into this depends on how much the car is worth. for example if you check and it will cost $400 for a sticker and the car is only worth $1000 then sell it fast for what you can get for it. if the car is worth 10k then put the money into it for the sticker. i would put it on craigslist immediately and set your price to kelly blue book according to condition. obviously go by private party. and maybe go 5% over that price so you can knock 10 % off if you have to and not lose too much...mike...*hug*shake
