What to do before you sell your car

Home > Sell Cars > What to do before you sell your car

Looking to sell your car in Las Vegas? If that’s your plan, you might want to consider a few things. Like your home, there are things you can do to maximize the value of your home – such as sprucing up design, enhancing its style with a lick of paint, or cleaning things up/adding some cool plants. Similarly, there are a couple of things you should do when it comes to adding value to your used car. Here is a handy checklist you should think about before selling your car.

Get Inspected!

Nobody wants to purchase a car that isn’t up to scratch.

You need to take the time, or, at the very least ask a mechanic to take the time, to inspect and review the very basics of your vehicle. The less faults, the easier it will be to sell your car. You’ll also receive higher offers; a win-win situation. Check your used car into the local car wash; have the vehicle look its very best. Clean the inside, too, to save prospective buyers the time, effort and associated stress.

These may sound like small things, but they work.

Get Photographing!

There’s nothing worse than a poorly taken photo, particularly of something which – in real life –looks great.

Only take high-quality photos of your vehicle. This means taking photos at the right angle, the right lighting and against the right background. Details should be clear; its cleanliness and overall appearance should be second-to-none. On seeing the photos, prospective buyers should know exactly what they’re purchasing. If they’re in doubt, they’re unlikely to invest the time to buy your used car.

In extreme cases, you might even want to ask a professional photographer.

Get Pricing!

Why lose out when you can make more?

Whether you’re selling your used car or your used sofa, you need to get the price right. This doesn’t just mean getting the highest price for your vehicle, but it also means pitching the vehicle at a price that isn’t too high for buyers. You need to strike the right balance. Have a look around the local market and see what, on average, your vehicle is worth. Take the current state of your vehicle into consideration to add extra value.

But, that being said, don’t lie to prospective buyers. Always tell the truth about the exact state of your vehicle. Don’t let anything come back to haunt you!
