If you’ve got your eye on an upgrade, you want to know you can get the money you need from your old car to make it a reality. But getting there is another thing entirely.  Everyone wants to get the best price for their car, so how do you actually do it? While it can feel like a monumental task, there are a few things you can do to ensure that your car has the best possible chance of being seen by the right person and bought at the right price.  In this blog, Done Deal lifts the curtain on the three things you need to do when putting an online ad for your car together. 

Get it looking its very best

First things first, you need to make your car look as appealing as possible. Many car owners are in the habit of taking a trip to the panel-beaters before they sell their vehicle in order to get any small scratches and dings taken care of, but you need to go further.  It’s a tough market selling privately, and anything you can offer over the next guy can help. If you’re due for a new set of tyres in the next few months, maybe go ahead and give them a change. Get a full service and ensure that all of your fluids are fully topped up.  After that, it’s time to give your car the best clean of its life. Consider even getting it a basic detail if you want it to really gleam.  

Be careful with your pictures

We’ve all seen how beautiful everything from burgers to jewellery looks in advertisements – often to the point where it doesn’t even resemble the real thing! You don’t need to go that far – and in fact being deceitful with your photos will only hurt you – but you do need to take care with how, when and where you photograph your car.  In your garage on a cloudy day is not going to give your photos the appeal they need to catch someone scrolling through a list of identical cars – take your photos outside on a day when the light is on your side.  What’s more, you need to show the right things. Give a 360° view of your car, but also make sure you document the interior and – as painful as it can be – any defects not corrected before listing. Be honest about the state of your car but present what you have in the best light. 

Done Deal – the better way to trade in your used car

After that, all there is to do is to make the ad, check the details for accuracy, find buyers, meet them, negotiate a price with them, transfer the registration, collect the money and drop off the car! Simple! Right?  We’ll be honest, selling your car privately can be a real pain. With so much to do and so much room for error, wouldn’t it be better if there was a faster, simpler way to sell that car.  Luckily for you, there is, and you’re looking at it. Done Deal is the easy way to sell your car. With most cars accepted, we offer a simple four-step process to selling your car. Just make an online application and one of our staff will be in touch with an offer and to book an inspection.
