We are here to help you sell your car quickly and for the best price possible. Shai Car Market is providing a one stop market for your vehicle sale, we advertise on TV, Radio and most media platforms to announce to 1000’s of car buyers and sellers. This gives you the opportunity to interact and make deals with different buyers from all over Ghana looking to buy cars, vans, mini buses and more.

You should budget to sell your car within 1-2 weeks, any longer than this and you must ask yourself some serious questions. If you sold the car on the first day for a fire-sale price and just went and got a job you would earn more money than spending 3-4 weeks in the car market trying to hold out for your best price.

Remember repair costs do not increase the value of your car, it’s worth only what someone else is willing to pay – end of story.

The more BUYERS to the car market the better your chances, so it’s in the interest of every SELLER in the Car Market to do the following:

ADVERTISING!!! – The car will not sell itself.
