How to Sell Your Car in a Week
When people decide to buy cars (new cars or used cars), the biggest frustration for most people is selling on their existing used cars. The following tips are designed to allow you to sell cars quickly.
Make sure you set the price correctly, what you want and what used cars are worth might be two different things. You can be sure those looking to buy a car will have done their homework. There are many websites offering free valuation of your car so it may worth a look. Alternatively, check out online car selling sites; see what similar cars are going for on Auto Trader or EBay. Be sure to take into account your used cars mileage, car history and overall condition when setting the price and allow a little extra for haggling purposes.
When writing an advert to sell cars (whether used cars or new cars), you should make sure to mention all the benefits, do not exaggerate and avoid jargon or technical words. Keep things simple so everyone can understand what you are offering. Include key selling features such as condition, MOT and Tax, if it has been well cared for and maintained. Mention that the full car history is available for review. Those who buy cars will appreciate the attention to detail.
Include some great photos that will help you sell cars more effectively. Make sure you clean it throughout and it looks at its best; maybe even consider getting it cleaned professionally. When taking photos of the vehicle, be sure to take them in clear light against plain backgrounds, that way the car becomes the most important feature. Take detailed photos of important selling features such as alloy wheels or nice interior shots; this will attract those who buy cars(whether it is new cars or otherwise).
When you have interested people coming to view the car, give it a clean, take out all your junk, clutter and empty crisp packets. Even an old, used car can be made attractive with a bit of polish and a hoover. Organise your paperwork so that the car history can be reviewed, check the oil and water levels and make sure the tyres are the correct pressure.
If selling private is not for you, you can always sell your car to local car dealers or car buying companies such as Webuyanycar but bare in mind that you may not get the best price as they will have to make profits selling your car on.
