When selling your car, or any item for that matter, you always hope to get as much money back as you possibly can right? So if there were a few minor tweaks to be made to increase your return why risk losing out? Did you know that having a spare car key fob when selling your car you are more likely to get a sale? This is as it is common knowledge that paying for replacement car key fobs for a lost or stolen car key can be far more expensive than having a spare car key programmed in the first place.

Your Advert

Advertising when selling your car is your first, essential step to a successful sale.

There are many ways you can advertise, some free, others involving a cost.

Some of the most popular ways of advertising cars are:

  • ‘For sale’ signs in local shop windows
  • Car auction sites, such as eBay and eBid
  • A ‘for sale’ sign in one of your car’s windows
  • In your local newspaper’s classified ads section
  • Car-selling websites such as AutoTrader and Gumtree

Whichever option(s) you choose, your advertisement must by law describe the car accurately and include the following details:

  • Colour
  • Mileage
  • Condition
  • Your contact details
  • List of equipment/taxes
  • Full service history (or not)
  • The exact make and model
  • The year of manufacture and registration identifier (eg ‘09’ or ‘59’ plate for 2009

All in all it it best o be as up front and honest about your car as possible to avoid any awkward situtations.
