Tips on selling your car

 

When you come to selling your car you want to make sure you get the maximum value from the vehicle. Weather it be BMW, Mercedes Benz, Lamborghini McLaren, Porsche, Audi, Range Rover, Audi or Bentley. Your pride and joy will be a hard relationship to break. But you can make that separation a little easier knowing you got what its worth in the end.

 

Targeting

If your car is a Range Rover for example, you would want to gear the advert towards families. Highlight the optional extras and also rare extras that other vehicles may not have. The most used platform and most approved is AutoTrader. However, you may find for more specific cars that piston heads usually has more enthusiasts that visit the site.

 

Valeting

It is ALWAYS worth taking time to give your vehicle a deep clean or pay for a professional valet. This also will make sure you don’t leave anything of value behind. (even if it is your favorite Abba album). It will also help for when you are taking images for the advert.

 

Video

If you have the capability to take a walk around video of the vehicle this will perform around 30% better than an advert with just images. It is important to not catch your own reflection.

 

Timing of the sale

If you have a convertible, then it wouldn’t be wise to try and sell this vehicle when it is coming into the winter months. You also need to consider the period where you are left without a vehicle. You should try and get the purchase of your new car and sale of your old car as close together as possible.

 

Be honest and accurate

Describing your vehicle as it is and being honest will increase a buyers trust in you and also save both of your time. If you say the tyres are all above the legal limit and they’re not, then the buyer will either walk away or overcompensate on the price.

 

 

Don’t have time to sell your vehicle?

Although these steps above are to make it as easy as possible for you to sell your car, it can become a hassle. Having prospecting buyers at your home/driveway, wanting to have a test drive and also trying to haggle you down on price.
