How to Sell Your Car for the Most Profit

If it’s your first time buying a car, it can seem like an intimidating task. There are quick and easy tips that can take the guesswork out of preparing your vehicle, and these tips from My Auto Store can show you how to sell your car for maximum profit.

Make it Spic and Span

The cleaner a car is, the more expensive it will appear and the easier it will be to sell your car online. When your vehicle has crumbs and dirt all over, it gives the appearance that it was not well-maintained while you owned it. Making an older car look shiny and new will attract more motivated buyers.

Get it Detailed by a Professional

It may sound counterintuitive, but a professional detailing job that runs $100-200 could add $500 or more to your car’s worth. Detailing takes small scratches and paints imperfections out. This leads to an overall better-looking vehicle. Detailing yourself can be done but it is often a lot of time and effort. It also requires purchasing the right products.

Replace the Floor Mats

It’s a simple and cheap trick but can give a much more expensive and well-kept look.

Get it Serviced

Having your car serviced will give you a good idea of what is wrong with your car. For smaller repairs, you can buy your own parts and make the repairs yourself. Changing the oil and other small considerations will make the car look better to a more savvy buyer. Determine which repairs are worth your time and money. Smaller repairs should be done since it will show you took care of the car. Bigger repairs may be better off negotiating the price with the potential buyer.

Place an Effective Ad

Whether you sell your car privately or you sell your car online, make sure the ad is very honest about the car and has accurate, good photographs. Most buyers will be able to find what’s wrong with your car in a test drive, so lying will only make you seem dishonest. Use important keywords in the heading and put all features and details about the car, even if they seem obvious.

If your car has seen better days, you might get more out of its parts than the vehicle as a whole. My Auto Store is always looking for vehicles. We pride ourselves in giving a fair offer that gets the vehicle off the shoulders of the owner efficiently. Sell your car today!
