Getting Your Car Ready for A Test Drive and Eventual Sale
If you are planning to sell your car, here are a few simple tips on how to prepare it for a test drive and an eventual sale:
Clean Your Vehicle – The first step is always to clean your car thoroughly. This includes washing and waxing the exterior, removing all clutter in the car and trunk, vacuuming and wiping down all interior surfaces, and cleaning all the windows. To save time, you may consider having it detailed by a professional.
Regular Maintenance – Regular maintenance of your car shows potential buyers that you’ve kept up the car’s condition and that you’re selling a reliable, well-maintained vehicle. Regular oil changes is also a great indication of good upkeep, especially if you changed your oil every 3,000-8,000 miles, in line with the manufacturer’s recommendations.
Repair Any Damage – Check your vehicle for damage, dents, dings or scratches. Also replace any burnt-out lights or fuses and top off all fluid levels.
Check Your Insurance – Before starting a test drive of your vehicle, check with your insurance carrier and see if you are covered in the event of an accident if someone else is driving.
Anticipate Questions - If your car has a few unique features, make sure you can answer their questions such as what certain buttons do. If you made any modifications to your car, make sure you can answer why those changes were made and how they benefit the car and add value to it.
