Selling your car via the direct seller route doesn't sound like the easiest task on earth, and we can definitely relate. Meeting strangers, negotiations, anticipating the buyer’s loan application status and dealing with large sums of money can contribute to mounting stress levels.

We’re here to ease your worries - this comprehensive step by step guide helps you to sell your car on Carousell, via the direct seller route.

We’ve been there and done that - scheduled an appointment with the prospective buyer only to realise that the document templates have not been saved or printed. Which is why before the processes start proper, it’s ideal to download documents required during the selling process.

Test drive indemnity form

Ask the seller to fill up this test drive indemnity form before commencing with the test drive. The potential buyer will need to bear the responsibility during the drive. Only the test driver’s signature is required.

Vehicle sale and purchase agreement form

If the test drive went well and the buyer wants to buy your car, prepare this document: vehicle sale and purchase agreement form. Both buyer and seller (you) have to fill it up carefully as it’s a legally binding agreement.

Payment receipt(s)


Once both parties have signed the vehicle sale and purchase agreement form, issue a payment receipt to receive the deposit. Decide on a comfortable deposit fee and inform the buyer. Market rates range from S$500 to S$5,000.


The same payment receipt template should be used for the downpayment (less deposit). State your preferred method of funds transfer, eg: bank transfer, PayNow etc.

Vehicle handover form (online)

In this final step, prepare this online vehicle handover form, which both parties have to fill. e-signatures are required. By filling up this form, the seller (you) agree that ownership of the vehicle has to be transferred to the buyer within 7 days.

The transaction was very smooth from the minute I get on to their website trying to sell my car till the car ownership transferred and have the money paid by Pay Now into my account. It only takes less than 3 days. The person attending to me are very professional, Jon at the phone in their office and Sean Tan who came down to view and test the car. I am very happy to have decided to sell my car through "One Shift By Carousell"
