Prep your car for a sale: We buy cars
Selling your car can be an exciting process, but it’s essential to ensure your vehicle is in the best possible condition to attract and secure the best deal. Proper preparation can make a significant difference in both the speed and price of the sale.
We go over the steps to prep your car when you’re planning to sell it. And when you’re ready to make a hassle-free sale, consider Weelee for a seamless experience.
Step 1: Clean and detail
A clean car not only looks more appealing but also signals that you’ve taken good care of it. Start with a thorough wash and wax to make your car shine. Pay attention to the interior as well; vacuuming carpets, wiping surfaces, and cleaning windows. Consider a professional detailing service if necessary. A professionally cleaned car can make an older car look pristine.
Step 2: Address mechanical issues
Prospective buyers are more likely to be interested in a mechanically sound car. Have your car inspected by a mechanic to identify and fix any potential issues before you sell yours. This includes checking the engine, brakes, tires, and fluid levels. A well-maintained car with a great service history gives buyers peace of mind, which brings us to our next step…
Step 3: Organise service history
Gather and organise your car’s service records. This demonstrates transparency and shows that you’ve taken care of your vehicle. It can also be a valuable selling point, especially for those who want to know the car’s history.
Step 4: Pricing research
Research the current market value of your car. This will give you some confidence when negotioating a selling price. Various online tools and resources can help you determine a competitive price for your vehicle. Keep in mind factors like mileage, age, and the vehicle’s condition before considering your selling price.
Step 5: Take high-quality photos
Quality photos are crucial to get the process started. Ensure that your pictures are well-lit and capture all angles of your car’s exterior and interior. Highlight any special features or upgrades that could make your vehicle more appealing.
Front, sides, back and interior images are usually required for a successful car sale – especially when you start the selling process online. Once you upload your car details online, Weelee may contact you and ask for these images. This transparency allows you get the best offer when we buy your car.
Step 6: Prepare necessary documents
Gather all the necessary paperwork, including Proof of Ownership, Notification of Change of Ownership, Application for Registration of Motor Vehicle and Vehicle Registration Certificate. Make sure everything is organised and easily accessible for potential buyers.
Step 7: Try to be available
Make yourself available for a Weelee representative to view the car in person. This can speed up the selling process.
