Selling Your Old Car

No car lasts forever, and however attached you may get to your fine four-fendered friend, there will come a time when you’ll want to trade up and sell your old motor – the process of which can be quite daunting, as expected.

There are some important factors you need to consider beforehand. First, it is important to ensure your old car’s bodywork, tyres and electrical systems are thoroughly checked and it has undergone all necessary repairs. Naturally, cleaning your car inside and out can makes it look more appealing and more likely to sell at a good price. Remove any clutter from the foot wells and inside doors – maybe even consider having it valeted for that professional finish!

When pricing your car be realistic; perhaps look online or consult a car price guide to help you. Having all the relevant documentation is essential – potential buyers will want to see the vehicle log book (V5) and MOT certificate as well as any receipts, service records and handbooks.

By following the right method, the sale of your old car can run smoothly and stress free, enabling you to relax and look forward to investing in a new one…
