We're sharing some of our tips for preparing your Charlotte used car for trade-in or sale.

  • The first thing you're going to want to do is clean your vehicle inside and out! Buyers are initially going to see how your vehicle looks, so it's important to impress them. Make sure to clean it thoroughly by clearing out the clutter, vacuuming the interior and wiping the surfaces. If you plan on trading in your vehicle, you may want to have all of your belonging ready to go to make the process quicker!

  • Not only are you going to want to make a good impression with the image of your used car, it's important for it to perform well! Although we don't suggest investing too much money into your vehicle before selling it, you should take care of necessary auto maintenance such as getting an oil change, topping off other fluids and filling the tires with the correct amount of air pressure. You should also take care of small repairs such as replacing broken light bulbs and touching up small scratches on the exterior paint.

  • When selling your vehicle, we suggest you have all of your paperwork in hand. If you have auto service or repair record ready, prospective buyers can see how well you've maintained your vehicle and get some peace-of-mind. You can skip this step if you plan to do a trade-in in Charlotte, as we can run a vehicle history report for you!
