So, when it comes to selling a Rolex, you’ve got a couple of options. Most people know that they can go to either eBay or sell professionally. Lots of people think eBay is the way to go, but it’s not.
We appreciate that there is a time and a place to sell on eBay, but when it comes to Rolex, it’s not it. What we thought we would do is take a look at the difference between selling on eBay and selling to a professional company, so you can understand the difference.
Selling on eBay – The Reality
Lots of people like selling on eBay, and it’s not difficult to see why. eBay is a great space, and it can offer a lot, but even if you can make a sale, it’s less than perfect.
Here are a few of the problems that come from eBay. First of all, you don’t have a lot of serious buyers. A lot of people who browse eBay or hobbyists, just ordinary people. You might get the occasional collector, but most people won’t understand the true value of what you have, so they try to make you an offer for less, or if you set your auction to be bid on, they won’t offer as much money as you could make elsewhere.
Another big problem is that eBay has their own fees. So, just when you think you sold your Rolex for a good price, eBay will take a certain percentage of that as part of their handling fees, which can impact you. You can’t charge the buyer anything more, so you’re kind of stuck.
So, with all of these negative points, it’s not difficult to see why a lot of people choose to sell privately. It’s a very easy thing to do, and it does bring a lot of benefits. Selling privately isn’t difficult, it just requires you to take a proper look at what is available.
Professional sales are a lot easier, because you’re guaranteed to get a good price with no hassle. Your watch will have a reasonable value, and a professional company has the resources to offer you a competitive price. This means that you can sell without having to worry about losing a lot of money. There are no handling fees, there is no service charge, so you do quite well in the end.
Selling a Rolex is pretty easy and it’s something a lot of people choose to do. It’s got a lot of benefits attached to it so you can probably see exactly why people do it. A professional sale is definitely the superior choice.
We personally have seen a lot of professional sales that have gone over really well, and it was easy to see why. At the end of day, you will want to get the best price, which is exactly why a professional sale will make all the difference.
