Interest in buying and selling in this day and age has been very developed. In the past, buying and selling cars were mostly sought after by car brokers or car dealers who had their own showrooms or owned their own shops. But, nowadays buying and selling cars has become a business that is in great demand by most people, both young and old. Buying and selling cars has become a business that is in demand because there are many enthusiasts. The business of buying and selling cars is also often used as a side business outside the main job of the seller. Business people buying and selling cars usually have a garage and a job that is not far from the car. If ordinary people want to do the business of buying and selling cars, they can also use the car before they trade in the car they use. Users can use the car they want to sell as long as the car hasn’t been sold anymore. Such a principle is actually very beneficial for the side business people, because besides they get the benefit of being able to use the car they will also get money benefits if the car is sold higher than the price they bought. Because now many people are looking for a good car but at a low price so they can resell the car at a higher price and will not get a loss because they also get profit by using the car.
Cars that are in great demand by buyers or brokers and car traders are easy maintenance cars and the selling price range is not too high. This car is usually output in 2000 and below, but with conditions that are still good and routine maintenance. Examples of cars that have easy maintenance are cars from Japan. Japanese cars that are marketed in Indonesia are usually branded Toyota, Honda, Daihatsu, and many more Japanese car products which are marketed in Indonesia. Cars that are quite difficult to maintain in Indonesia usually come from Europe. This difficult maintenance is usually caused by the difficulty of the spare parts available in Indonesia. The difficulty of these parts also makes the price of these parts expensive and also affects the selling price and demand. European car enthusiasts are usually from among car enthusiasts and also from the European car community group. Examples of European cars marketed in Indonesia such as BMW, Peugeot, Mercedes Benz, Volvo, and many more. This European car is known for having luxurious and elegant features and facilities. In the use of fuel, European cars are also far more wasteful than Japanese cars. But in its use, European cars are more comfortable than cars from Japan because of its many luxurious facilities and features compared to those of Japanese cars.
