Whether you are looking for a brand new model, or your current car has seen better days, there are many reasons that you may want to sell your vehicle.

Just Vehicle Solutions now offer to buy used vehicles. Not only that, but if you were interested in leasing a brand new car from us, we can part exchange your old vehicle against the cost of the lease vehicle.

With this in mind you’ll want to make sure you get the best price for your used vehicle. To help you maximise your car resale value, we’ve put together a 6 point check list for you to consider.

Make sure it is clean 

One of the first things you should do when selling your vehicle is give it a good clean. Just like a house, a clean car will attract better buyers and lead to a quicker sale as it shows the car at it’s best. If possible, remove signs of wear and tear both internally and externally by using products that can restore elements like the interior, wheels and paintwork. 

Protect the vehicle from the elements 

Sunlight will fade and dry out the paintwork on your car, hail can leave small dents, and rain and salt residue can rust the metal. Where possible, park your car in a garage, under a car port, or use a cover during extreme weather conditions.

Drive carefully 

Not only does driving more carefully reduce the amount of wear that the car will be susceptible to, but it will also reduce your chance of an accident. A car with an accident history or a list of extensive repair work can be less appealing to buyers.

Keep mileage low 

Whole not always possible, you should avoid driving your vehicle unnecessarily to keep the mileage low. Low mileage can be more important that the vehicles age to most buyers, and directly affects the price of the vehicle. Low mileage will also suggest minimal wear and tear.

Repair minor damage yourself

Minor issues such as peeling paintwork, windscreen chips, small dents, and expiring bulbs and tyres are worth sorting yourself before the sale of the vehicle. Although you will incur a charge for these types of minor issues, it will help to maximise the resale value of the vehicle.

Service the Vehicle

A reliable and well maintained vehicle is more appealing to potential buyers. While owning the vehicle, make sure you service the vehicle as per the manufacturers recommendations, keeping on top of any maintenance. Before selling the vehicle, book a service with a trusted garage so your vehicle is running to the best possible standard.
