Reverse auction - selling car?

As we know with Unhaggle and other types of services, there are reverse auction services for us to buy cars. E.g. dealers outbid each other for the lowest price they are able to sell a car...

What about for us trying to sell a car? Are there services that will enable an easier selling experience? E.g. get dealers or whatnot to see who will pay top dollar?

Yes, I realize that selling privately is the easiest way to go, but that is not an option I really want to entertain. Thanks!

If you want to sell (trade in) your car, you simply have to visit a bunch of dealerships in your region and see what you can get. Mind you, if you are buying new, they can simply shuffle the new car discount # and trade in # around.

Auctions will never provide you a fair price return on your car. Further you have to pay auction/listing fee regardless if you sell the car. The system is designed to make money for the auctioneer/owner and that's about it. You would have a better return to have a friend help you with the private sale.

Better than trading it to a dealer when buying another car at time of sale, no?

Unlikely, especially as you get a tax discount for your trade in as well.
If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.
