How Selling or Trading a Car Works
The most important thing when trading or selling your car is to make sure that the car makes a good first impression. There are some things you can do to make sure your car makes a good impression on a potential buyer.
•Wash, wax and detail the car.
•Have a true picture of your vehicle's condition by having it inspected or getting a mechanic's opinion.
•Have any maintenance records or mechanic's reports ready to show buyers.
•Consider making low-cost repairs on things like dents, dings and scrapes, as well as small mechanical problems, rather than selling the car "as is."
•Take all your personal items out of the car. If a buyer wants to go on a test drive, you don't want the car cluttered with stuff.
•Don't forget to clean off the wheel covers and wash the tires.
•Clean the windows and all mirrored surfaces.
You should expect potential buyersor dealers to investigate the car fully. If your car is in the best possible condition, you will have a better chance of enticing the potential value of your car.
