How to get best price while selling or exchanging you car - Simple top 5 tips and advice to get extra money when selling your used car with the best valuation
Going that extra way in order to sell your car will prove fruitful as that extra effort will give your more money. When selling a car many take the short-cut route and end up losing money. Due to the lockdown in India and worldwide, the demand for used car in 2020 has increased with customers wanting to have a personal vehicle as compared to using public transport for travelling safely during the Covid pandemic. MyNewCar lists down the top 5 do-it-yourself at home tips and advice to get the best price while selling or exchange your used car to buy a brand new car.
1. Clean and polish your car and get it ready to be sold
Once you have made up your mind regarding selling your car, some simple efforts will go a long way. First is get your car cleaned up. Simple but many chose to ignore it and hence your car's valuation is affected for this simple reason. Potential buyers will like the fact that you have cleaned your car and made it presentable. Get engine bay, boot/trunk cleaned, wash and polish the exterior and get interior cleaned up with a vacuum plus special car shampoo to gets the shine. Scrub your alloy wheels and seats plus other parts of the car.
2. Remove stickers, modification and make the car as stock as possible
When you are selling a car you need to make it as standard as possible and by that we mean how the car came out of the factory. If you have put any aftermarket parts then it is best to remove it. Remove alloys and go to the stock ones and remove any stickers outside the car or any changes. Inside, clean up the car and remove any personal changes you did. Make it standard.
3. Keep service history and insurance upto-date
One thing many sellers do not do and are simply lazy about but ultimately it costs them a lot more. Before selling your car, it is important to service it and keep the service records up-to-date as that will convince the buyer that the car has been cared for well. Getting your car serviced via the official car service centre is also a plus which adds to your valuation. Also renew the insurance so that it is not an extra expense when selling the car and that would be attractive for the buyer.
4. Delete your personal information
These days cars are having a lot more technology so best is to delete your own information that is there in the car. By that we mean deleting navigation history or unpairing the Bluetooth and deleting paired device or device history. Also cars have connected sim technology and it is important to log out and clear any personal information.
5. Take clear and good pictures from all angles
What is the first thing that the potential buyer ever sees? Not your car but a photo of it so the first impression has to be very good indeed. Go to a place with a nice and clear background with the early morning light. Taking photos at bad light or evening or bad angles would make your car less appealing hence putting that extra effort will make your car stand out.
