3 Emotions You Have After Selling a Car

Cars usually evoke some sort of emotion, but selling your beloved automobile to someone else almost always leaves you feeling one of three ways.

Selling a car isn’t hard these days, but dealing with the emotions of selling a car definitely can be.

Let’s try to identify a few, to help you cope. Just don’t forget to grab your license plate and garage door opener!

Remorse

We’ve all sold that one car that we felt sorry for as soon as we signed the title over.

Sometimes it was to make room in the budget for a new family member, or sometimes it was just the end of the road for that particular car. Either way, seller’s remorse can feel almost as bad as buyer’s remorse.

Hope

One of the oddest feelings to have after selling a car is regarding is hoping that the car is going to a good home.

No matter how much you tell yourself a car isn’t alive and it doesn’t have feelings, it is still hard to fight the urge to feel a sense of hope as the new owner drives off.

Happiness

Similar to the freedom you experience after ending any relationship, selling a car opens up the door to buying another. As good as it feels to not have a car payment, that new-to-you-car itch is hard to overcome for anyone.
