Something as simple as car detailing can add hundreds of dollars to the price of your car when you sell it. There are some other old tricks of the trade that can get the most bucks for your vehicle when it comes time to sell it.

Car Detailing

Car detailing is going to cost maybe $100 or $200 depending upon where you live and the thoroughness of the job. That might sound a lot for a car you’re not even going to drive much anymore, but it can get somebody to pay hundreds more for the car. The reason is, people are strongly attracted to shiny and spotless cars.

Mechanical Check

Stop by Reliant Auto Repair to have your car checked out. Not because you’re being nice to the future buyer, but you need to know the value of the car before you put a price tag on it. Your buyer will likely take it to a mechanic to check it out. It is better if you already know it needs a brake job and set the price accordingly. If you tell the potential buyer you know it needs an $800 brake job, so you set the price accordingly, it’ll build trust. People are likely going to buy from you, because they trust you.

Auto Body Repair

If you have little scratches or tiny dents, get them fixed. A potential buyer will fall in love with a car that looks shiny and brand new. The small amount of money you spend for these little repairs will more than pay for themselves in the higher asking price.
