Get more bang for your buck when selling your used car in Charlotte
Why not get the price you want for your vehicle? In order to get a better idea of what your Charlotte used car is worth, you can head over to our website and use our handy tool to calculate it based on things like mileage and condition. However, you can also take matters into your own hands to make your used car that much more attractive to prospective buyers. Here are some tips to get your vehicle into tip-top shape!
- Make necessary repairs! If you’ve got some small repairs due on your used car (like replacing lightbulbs, fixing fuses, getting rid of a dent), why not take care of them? As long as they’re relatively inexpensive, they’ll just up the value of your vehicle and your overall profit! Our Toyota Service Center can help you out if you’re not sure which repairs to make and which to wait on.
- Get all of your paperwork in one spot! You’re going to need to transfer the title of your used car in Charlotte; you should also gather up any service or repair records that you have available, as well as information on warranties that you might have on the car. If you’ve got a CarFax, throw that in the pile, too. The more information you provide, the better off you’ll be in a sale!
- Make sure your car is clean! It sounds silly but it matters quite a bit – if your paint is shiny, your interior is freshly vacuumed and wiped down, and your glass is clean, the car will look at lot nicer (and more expensive) than a dirty car full of junk. Don’t forget to empty out all bins and the trunk – not only will it make it easier on you should you sell it to a prospective buyer, it also helps the buyer imagine the car as their own!
- Get your routine auto service taken care of. If you’re due for an oil change or a tire rotation, get it done! It makes buyers feel better if the car has been properly maintained and they don’t have to rush it over to get an oil change as soon as you hand them the keys. This routine auto service also ensures a top-notch performance!
