When it comes to changing your wheels for something new, motorists are faced with a choice: part-exchange it or try your hand at selling it privately.

While simply dumping your old car on the dealer who’s arranging your new one can seem the hassle-free option, you’re not likely to get anywhere near its true value, which is why Motors.co.uk currently has well over a quarter of a million cars for sale, from both traders and private individuals.

However, while selling privately can be as simple as taking some well framed pictures, penning a suitable description and posting it all online, there are a number of things to be wary of, should you not want to fall foul of consumer trading laws, particularly if you want to describe your car at length.
