How can you spruce up your used car in Charlotte for sale?
Let’s say you have an older used car in Charlotte that’s in great shape mechanically but has seen better days in terms of appearance. You don’t have to dump a ton of money into it in order to up its value – there are simple steps you can take without spending a lot of cash to take it to the next level! Our sales specialists had some suggestions and we’re here to share them with you. Here are some ways you can up your vehicle’s value without breaking the bank:
- Restore your headlights: Did you know we offer headlight restoration services at our Toyota Service Center? Bring in your Charlotte used car and let our techs get your headlights looking brand new. You can also buy a restoration kit and do it yourself – the point is, it’s simple to get rid of that dull plastic look and get your headlights sparkling again.
- Add seat covers: Is the upholstery inside of your Charlotte used car looking a little worse for the wear? Instead of replacing it entirely – which can be quite pricey – consider buying seat covers to spruce up the interior a little and lend a neater, cleaner feel. Same thing goes for the steering wheel – steering wheel covers are relatively inexpensive and can cover up worn or cracked leather!
- Touch up the paint: If the exterior of your NC used car has scratches, why not buff them out or have them touched up? It’ll make a big difference, as scratches on the paint are one of the things buyers will notice first. Our Toyota Collision Center can take care of this for you, or you can buy a paint pen and touch things up yourself for a relatively low price.
- Throw in some new technology: Outdated technology can sometimes be a turn-off to prospective buyers, so why not invest in technology like an affordable new stereo system? We offer great deals on accessories and parts like this at our Parts Center, and can help you install them to boot. Upgrading the technology may bring a whole new host of buyers into the picture!
