Tips for Selling a Luxury Car

Get a Valuation

We all have a price in mind for the cars we want to sell, but it is important to list a price that is fair for both the buyer and the seller. Hiring a third-party valuator to assess your car and give you its value is a good way to learn how much you should be asking for. This will also prevent you from being ripped off, as you may discover your luxury car is worth more than you thought. It can also be useful to research the market yourself to see how much similar cars have sold for, so you know what to expect or ask for.

Keep it Clean

When selling a car, you want to make sure it is in the best condition possible, so potential buyers will see it in its best light. So, it is important to keep the car clean, giving attention to both the interiors and exteriors to make sure they are spotless. You can take care of this yourself or hire a professional cleaner to take care of it for you and ensure your car is looking perfect.

Get the Car Serviced

Nobody wants to be sold a poor-quality vehicle, so before listing your car take it into a mechanic and get a full service. While any potential repairs will cost you money, it is important to sell a properly cared for vehicle as buyers will most likely conduct their own inspections before buying. If they discover you are trying to sell them a dodgy vehicle, you will have trouble selling the car.

Only Use Good Photos

When selling your car online, the first impression buyers will have of your car is of the photos you have posted. Thus, it is important to take great photos of your vehicle that only show it in the best light. Take photos during a bright, sunny day so the car is clearly visible, and avoid uploading blurry photos. If there are any faults with the car, such as dents, make sure to be up front and share photos so buyers don’t feel like you are trying to swindle them when they arrive in-person.

Be Ready to Negotiate

Anyone who has sold something themselves will tell you that buyers will try to negotiate, and selling a luxury car is no different. Most potential buyers will try to lower the asking price, so a useful tactic can be to list the car at a higher price than you expect to sell it for, so the final price may end up closer to what you hope for. Engaging in negotiations with buyers also gives them a sense of control of their purchase, and if they feel they have managed to talk you down a bit they may be more likely to finalise the purchase.

Play Nice

Just like it’s important to treat everyone with respect in everyday life, it is also important to be friendly to potential buyers. Try and build a rapport with them so they feel comfortable and more inclined to buy from you. Give them the backstory of the car or any extra information they might be interested in and show genuine interest in why they are looking at making the purchase. If you have any extras that go with the car, such as accessories or license plates, offer to include them for free so the buyer feels like they are getting a better deal.

Use a Professional Car Seller

The easiest way to sell a car is to hire a car seller to do it for you. Simply contact a dealer with your car’s details and they will take care of the process for you, before presenting you with a price that you can choose to accept or reject. Selling a luxury car can be a difficult task to undertake on your own, so using a professional service like Sell My Car Queensland will give you peace of mind that you are in great hands.
