Trying to move on?
Have you finally made up your mind to sell your old car and get a new one?
Do you seek great resale value for your old vehicle?
The best way to get top dollar for your used car is by keeping it in the best condition possible. It is very important that you maintain your old car and equip it with useful and empirical accessories for the next prospective customer.
Remember, your car makes a very good investment while talking in terms of assets. However, it also gets depreciated (around 20%) as soon you buy it but this does not mean that you cannot sell it further for a better value.
But, what do you need to do so as to get top dollar for your used cars? Don’t have a clue?
No worries! Below are some tips and tricks that you need to keep in mind to improve the resale value of your car:
While a number of people consider having a good music system, amplifiers and woofers a valuable investment, some of us don’t even give them a second look. Remember, accessories such as this add to the overall value of the vehicle.
Therefore, try to invest in accessories that will be useful for a traveler. These can be navigation devices (we can say!), safety tools and equipment, devices intended for instant repairs, airbags, steering wheel lock system, anti lock braking system and many more.
Well, this does not mean that you cannot use your car at all! Always remember, a car that has more mileage is considered overused. Mileage is a huge factor especially when you are setting your car’s premium. So, try as much as you can to manage the mileage of your car in order to increase its resale value.
Do not forget that your car reflects your personality and your personal hygiene is reflected by how clean your car is. Make sure that problems like scratches, dents, faded seat covers, moisture or bad odor are not neglected by you while selling it to your customer.
Yes! Keep your maintenance receipts and other car-related documents handy as a proof. This will also help you determine a fair cost for your old used car.
As we all know, your car has its own ID that is your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number). VIN is used to track the history of your vehicle. Things like accident history, changes in ownership, violations along with servicing history can easily be tracked down by using this number. Remember, a car with bad records will end up fetching a bad deal so make sure that your car history records are clean.
Try to adhere to your scheduled car maintenance services. For instance, your car’s oil and air filter need to be changed after every 3000 to 4000 miles. You can also go for tire inspections to make sure they are in proper running condition. A regular check-up will not only improve its mileage but will also help you get top dollar for your used car.
Avoid overloading your old car as this will exert extra pressure on the engine and impact its lifespan negatively. Treating your car with respect will help you get the best resale value from your potential customers. All of this will help market your car to prospective buyers and show them how well you took care of it.
