Methods for selling Used Cars

It is absolutely essential that that you make your car look presentable before initiating your selling efforts. Give the car a good water wash followed by a wax job on the car body exterior. It is also necessary to vacuum clean the inside, and gloss up the tires, and spruce up the overall appearance. If there’s any burnt lights or fuses or other defective small accessories, replace them immediately. Prospective buyers will certainly feel annoyed once they see little things in bad shape. As a matter of fact, you can even add a few additional fittings to make the car look still more attractive. Please also make sure the tires are all properly inflated and the battery is in fine shape.

Prospective buyers of used cars are always apprehensive about three things – What is the mileage? Has the odometer been rolled back or tampered with? Was the car ever in a wreck at any time? It is of paramount importance that you allay the buyer’s misgivings by giving them a copy of an Auto Check Vehicle Report of your car that they not only feel satisfied about the exact condition of the car but also feel convinced your mileage has not been rolled back and your car has a clean record.

There is no denying that the most powerful selling tool is your car maintenance record especially oil changes and battery check ups. Every time your car is serviced, add the service report to your car file. When people see your car maintenance records, they will be immensely pleased and would want to do business with a self- organized person like you.

Auto classifieds on the web are much more cost effective than newspapers classifieds. Instead of limiting your ad to some local people who might or might not want to buy a used car, if you advertise on the web where there will be millions of people reading and a large number of responses. Avail a web site that offers a money back guarantee in case your car does not sell within a prescribed time period. Some sites run the ad continuously for a low price until the car is sold – a benefit no newspapers will offer.

Yet another constructive suggestion is to create color flyers about your car for distributing to possible buyers. Flyers can carry more details than a classified ad. It will be excellent if your web ad carried color photos and all the important particulars of the vehicle. If the buyer complains about some scratches or stains on your car exterior, politely explain it is normal wear and tear of a used car of and that is the reason why you are not demanding the price of a new car. This however does not apply to dents and it is therefore necessary you repair the dents before your buyers inspect the car.

Never advertise your car sale till you have researched the market for your car value, created your maintenance records and figured out how you will respond to every one of buyer’s queries. The asking price is very important and if your expectations are too high, the car will never be sold. Likewise if you under-price, the prospective buyers may suspect the condition of the car and its history.
