If you are getting ready to sell your old car so that you can get a new car, there are things that you need to do in order to make sure that you get the best possible price.
Get it Detailed
One thing that you are going to need to do is make sure that your car looks as good as possible. That means that you need to take it to a detail shop. They will wash and wax the car and do all the little extras that make sure that the outside of the car looks good. The detailers won't forget the inside either. They will clean out your car, vacuum and wash all your carpeting and upholstery, and make sure that everything else inside sparkles and shines. No one wants to buy a car that looks dingy and has stains on it, so doing this step will pay you back the money you spent on it.
Replace the Bits and Bobs
Over the years, you've probably lost little things like the cigarette lighter or a radio knob fell off or you lost the hubcaps. Those things aren't the most important part of your car, but buyers will look to make sure that all those things are there. That's because it shows that you took care of your car. Generally, you should have no problem with replacing those pieces. You can either buy the pieces you need online or you could check out an auto shop in your area to see if they can help you.
Check the Works
You will want to make sure that you have a mechanic go over your car thoroughly before you put it up for sale. Ask them to fix anything wrong so that you can sell it with confidence. If your state requires a licensing sticker to show that your car is street legal, you may want to make sure that you have a year's sticker on it so that the buyer won't have to worry about it. It is a good faith move on your part and shows that there isn't anything seriously wrong with the car. You may also want to show the buyer documentation from your mechanic about repairs and the state of the vehicle.

After I totaled my car, I knew that I needed to find a new vehicle that would weather auto body damage a little better. I started looking around for an incredible dealership that I could work with, and I was able to find a nice place that was relatively close to my house. They were easy to work with, focused on making my experience enjoyable, and had an incredibly large selection of great cars. Within a few hours I was able to find a really nice car that I loved, and I was really happy with the entire process. This blog is all about finding a great car that you will love.
