Pick your platform
When you’re selling a 10-year-old shuttle bus, it’s hard for Craigslist to beat. The list is free, you can post a lot of photos after the sale. There are no fees. The disadvantage is that the searches in Craigslist are confined to a relatively narrow area. Moreover, Craigslist appears to be a scammers and crazies magnet.
Find your car’s value
The next step is to know the value of your car. If you inspect their value on KBB.com, you will know how highly valuable a vehicle is on the private, dealer or trading market. There is also a cash offer tool to help dealers offer their vehicle, which basically sets the floor to your requested price. You can see if your extra cash in ads, shows and eventually sells your ride on the private Market is worth your time and energy. Autoankauf is the best-known service that can provide a potential buyer.
Fix what isn’t working
It’s as old as a horse trading maximum. Nobody wants to buy a busted car and in what people want to pay, you’re going to see. “Needs TLC” is a good way to discourage potential customers, so you get a high dollar in the car replacing bald tyre, repairing brakes and removal from the crashed windshield. In particular, be sure to fix safety-related elements – brakes, steering and illumination components, which are particularly examined during a state safety inspection. Every buyer who is worth his salt will ask you to bring a mechanic to see it. Be prepared. Be prepared.
Clean the car
Nobody wants a dirty car to look at. If the interior and its external washing are not vacuuming and cleaning, you can pay to have another person do it. Even if you sell a $1,500 car, a $30 job can cost a few hundred dollars if the buyer bucks the bargain and scales. No excuse for posting pictures of strewn litter carpets and coffee-caked sitting. Even on the internet, it doesn’t show good.
Take lots of pictures
There have been days when a photo was posted and called good. Car shoppers online want to see your car from all angles. Make sure that the car is clean and try to picture your pictures with even lighting, as previously mentioned. Photographs after dark are no-go and shooting under bright sunlight can make the picture tough. Choose a plain spot (whether a wall of white concrete or an empty car park can be good) that prevents places that lay shadow over the image in trees, poles and other objects.
