The first step is to bring your car back as close as possible to showroom condition. Start by removing everything from the car not installed by the manufacturer. Remove floor mats and either shampoo or replace as necessary. Vacuum the interior with special attention to the console area. Using a mild soap, clean all leather and vinyl. Again, pay special attention to the console and dash area. Clean the interior windows. Wax the exterior of the car, buffing out any minor scratches. Use a wheel cleaner for the tires and rims. Finally, clean the exterior windows.
Take multiple photos of the interior and exterior, including the odometer reading. Select from one of the many websites that offers used cars for sale in your area. Research the pricing for vehicles that are comparable to yours. Compose a description of the condition of the vehicle as well as why it’s for sale. Be honest. Gather all of the service records for inspection by the prospective buyer. Post the vehicle for sale on the website(s) you’ve selected. Include contact information. Be prepared to respond in a timely manner to all inquiries. Prospective buyers are often attempting to view cars on the same day they’ve made contact with the seller. The more responsive and flexible you are, the sooner you’ll be able to sell the car.
Meet prospective buyers in a public place. Let a friend or family member know you’ll be meeting with a prospective buyer for the car. Confirm their identity by viewing their driver’s license. Bring a screw driver to remove your license plate should a sale be completed. Best of luck in selling your used car for maximum dollar!
