Over 8 million second-hand cars are sold every year in the UK!
&, it pays to attempt to prepare your car as much as possible! Here are my top tips for getting the most money possible from your car!
Give it a clean!
Selling a car is a lot like a date. First impressions count for more than you imagine. The better your car looks, the easier it is to sell. Getting it professional valeted or investing an afternoon and giving it a proper clean fan add hundreds to the price!
Remove any dings and dents!
When selling your car, the buyer will look for any marks, scratches or dents that need fixing and from this, begin to deduct money from its value! Now, if your car is only worth a few hundred, don’t go spending money fixing it with repairs – honestly, it’s not worth it. However, if you are looking to add some value to your car without spending a fortune, something like the Dr.ColourChip Paint is perfect for touching up and minor chips and scratches!
You have the papers….right?
Selling your car without any papers is a big no-no. People want to know how well you’ve looked after her! Keep MOT certificates, receipts of repairs and full.
According to Kwik Fit, nearly half of used car buyers will ignore a car without a full service history!
