How to get the most for your car

If you are looking to sell your car, you may be wondering how you can get the most for it. There are a few things you can consider and look after during its lifespan to make sure you can get the best price for it…


Before you make the efforts to sell your car, make sure you get any bodywork issues sorted out. From dinks in the paintwork to dents in the bonnet, it can make all the difference to the price you get for your car.


Keep on top of regular servicing and maintenance. This way, you will minimise the work that needs doing when you come to sell it – worse still, putting off essential servicing and maintenance could leave you with an irreparable car, which would be a nasty surprise when you come to sell the vehicle.


While we’re not saying you should leave your car on your drive and avoid taking trips in it, a lower mileage will get you more for your car. Consider this during its lifespan and take longer trips in other cars if possible.


The starting value will of course bare some importance on the end value of your car. Cars with a higher starting value will obviously be prone to a larger depreciation, but to some extent, they hold their value quite well. It all depends on the make, the model and the desirability.
