So, you want to sell your car and fast? Whether you decide to sell it privately or via a listing website, there are many things you can do to ensure your car sells quickly and for a good price. So, without further ado, here are some tips from the team at Hoppy’s Hoppy’s Carwash & Café.
Invest in a service and inspection
Cars sell much better when they have a detailed logbook that evidence regular services. Even if you have let your services fall to the wayside, ensure that you invest in a full service for your car before selling to ensure that everything is working properly. Ensure your tires are inflated to the optimal pressure and that the oil and water levels have been checked. You won’t be able to sell your car without obtaining a current safety certificate, so make sure it has been inspected at an approved inspection station.
Create an attractive ad
Before you list your car ad, do some research. Check out other similar cars on the market and make sure you list a price that is competitive. Write a compelling description that stands out and add lots of photos from a variety of angles, both inside and out. Don’t try to hide blemishes or damage. It’s always best to be upfront and honest to avoid hassles later down the line.
Get your car professionally cleaned
All cars should be cleaned professionally both inside and out before being sold. Before taking your vehicle to the car wash make sure you clear out any litter or junk so the professionals can work their magic on your interiors. Invest in steam cleaning and or leather cleaning and consider getting an antibacterial treatment to remove any odours. Ensure that your exterior clean includes hard to reach places such door jambs, boot openings, exterior trims, headlights and wheel details.
