How To: Get as Much as Possible When Selling Your Used Car

If you want to get the most for your used car when it comes time to sell it, get it detailed by a professional. This will come as no surprise, but car buyers prefer clean, nice-looking cars. Stains, grime, excessive dirt, scratches and dull paint will make the car you are selling look older and cheaper than it really is and give the impression you haven’t maintained the car well.

The most important thing about selling your car is convincing the potential buyer that your car was well taken care of. There are several things you can do to make your car more attractive to buyers, the most important of which is getting it detailed to make it look as close to “like new” as possible.

Getting your car detailed can add as much as $500 or more to your car’s resale value and make it quicker and easier to sell. Well worth the cost of having the work done. Here are some detail services to consider when selling your car…

  • Polish the paint to remove light scratches and imperfects to improve gloss.
  • Detail the interior with a thorough steam cleaning and reconditioning.
  • Degrease and pressure wash the engine to remove built up dirt and grime.
