Prep your Charlotte used car to trade-in or sell!


Deciding to get rid of your current vehicle and to take home a different car can be exciting. However, if you currently have a used car in Charlotte that you’re eager to either trade-in or sell, then it’s important to do some prep work so that you can be sure to get the best offer possible! 

It can be easy for car owners to focus on the appearance of their used car in Charlotte if they’re thinking of putting it up on the market. However, a little bit of prep work can go far in helping your ride get ready to trade-in or sell – which can help you get the best offer possible for it! 

Get the best offer possible for your used car in Charlotte!

Hunting for the perfect pre-owned car or used Toyota in Charlotte can be a lot of fun – especially if you got a fantastic offer on your previous vehicle! The value of a pre-owned car is determined by a few key factors such as: 

  • Condition
  • Mileage
  • Reliability
  • Performance
  • Popularity

While you can’t control or change all of these factors if you’re thinking of putting your used vehicle on the market, you can do a little bit of leg work so that you can get the best offer possible on your used car!

  • Appearance and first impressions definitely matter, but before you start worrying about cleaning the outside of your vehicle, make sure it offers a great performance first. Does it need some routine car maintenance taken care of? While an overdue oil change won’t necessarily make or break a deal, it definitely won’t help the performance of the vehicle or help you get the best offer for it. Take a little bit of time to make sure your Charlotte used Toyota is running well and that its auto service is up to date before bringing it by to trade-in! 
  • There also may be some small adjustments and fixes that are needed, but won’t necessarily hurt the performance. For example, is an overhead light burnt out?  Do the windshield wipers need to be replaced? These small mishaps may not be that big of a deal to you, but it could sway a potential buyer one way or the other!  
  • Before you put your pre-owned car up on the market, it is a good idea to make sure it’s clean – both inside and out! Along with washing the outside, thoroughly clear out the interior and trunk so no personal items get left behind.
