How To Get Your Car Ready To Sell

If you’re prepping your car for sale in St. Charles, there are a series of steps you should take in how to get your car ready to sell. Here’s a short, but by no means complete, list of tasks to complete when you’re getting your car ready to sell:

  • Give your car a complete clean. This is for both your car’s interior and its exterior, so you should vacuum the inside or have it detailed as well as get an exterior wax for extra shine.
  • Get all your important documents together. This consists of several pieces of information that you should keep close by, including your title, service records, registration, and anything else that a buyer may want to look at.
  • Get small issues taken care of. You won’t get as good a price for your car if simple things like the lights and fluid levels aren’t taken care of. You can always have the dealer perform the repairs, but it would be cheaper for you to do it yourself.
  • If you have any extra items, be sure to include them. For instance, if you have an extra set of keys or discs that load your navigation system, you will want to include these when you take them into your Fenton dealer.
