Need to Sell a Motorcycle? Logan Answers Your RumbleOn Questions

Where is the best place to sell my motorcycle for free?

There is a lot of information to do with the processes and perks of using RumbleOn to sell a motorcycle or other powersport vehicle, and it can be a whole task in itself to cover all the benefits that come with it. However, I try. I try.

I’m going to cover some of the most commonly asked questions when it comes to RumbleOn and the process to sell a motorcycle online. If I happen to miss one of your most pressing questions, use the form at the end of this article to drop me a line. I’ll answer your question in my next article.

Alright, here we go.


Can I only use RumbleOn to sell my Harley? Or can I sell my Yamaha?

I get this question a lot and can understand the confusion. In fact, I first heard of RumbleOn when I used the free cash offer system to sell my Harley online. (After that, I was hooked, but that’s a different story.) The truth is, RumbleOn accepts all makes, models, and brands of motorcycles, powersports, recreational vehicles, car, trucks, scooters… You name it. 

Okay, maybe not so much the last three (yet), but RumbleOn has the technology and capacity to make cash offers and buy any type of vehicle you are looking to sell. While I used them myself to sell my Harley, I found that they are perfectly willing to extend offers for all sorts of motorcycle and powersport machines. So, feel free to submit your motorcycle for cash offer whether you're looking to sell a Yamaha, sell a Kawasaki, sell a Suzuki, sell an Indian...etc., etc. You get the point.

What is the difference between RumbleOn and other sites to sell a motorcycle?

The difference between RumbleOn and other listing sites to sell a motorcycle online is huge, so I’ll break it down to some of the most important points:

1) RumbleOn has created a solution to solve all the safety and security issues that you run into on public listing sites. When I was trying to sell my Harley for cash, I found out that creepers come out of the woodwork with the intention of stealing it right out from under you. Luckily, I recognized the tell-tale signs of someone's being up to no good and backed out of the situation quickly.

On that note, I can’t even begin to tell you the number of my buddies who encountered people from online listing sites that tried to pass off a bad check or a counterfeit money order. One time, a friend of mine had an “interested buyer” come back to his house, but not to check out the bike again. No, he came back while my buddy wasn't home. Long story short, the guy was caught mid-haul, but it made me think twice about giving potential thieves any possibility of scouting out where they could jimmy a door and make a quick buck.

2) When I sold my motorcycle to RumbleOn, I didn’t have to do any of the work. Hell, all I needed to do was wait for payment. The money hit my account as soon as I sent in my paperwork, and they didn’t pick up the bike until after the money had cleared. That was pretty cool. I was able to sell my motorcycle online and still get paid fast. Not to mention, the pickup of my old bike was free, and they even shipped my new bike right to my door for a flat-rate fee of $299. I didn’t have to stress about meeting potential buyers in some parking lot somewhere on the other side of the county.


Can I still sell my motorcycle to RumbleOn if it’s not paid off?

If you submit a vehicle with a lien for a Cash Offer, and the amount of your Offer does not cover the balance owed on the vehicle, then this is considered negative equity. This negative equity must be paid off before RumbleOn can purchase the vehicle.

On the other hand, if you would like to trade in your vehicle for a unit in RumbleOn’s inventory, then you might be able to apply your negative equity toward the purchase of another vehicle. It is important to note, however, that this depends on your credit approval and restrictions from your lender.
