Selling your VW? Get it Serviced First!

Whether you own a vintage 1960’s VW Van, or a newer model sedan, you want to make sure you get top dollar for your car. While it’s not likely you’re going to be able to sell it for your original investment dollars, you can increase its worth with VW car servicing in Newton Abbott. Making small adjustments and improvements can get it out of your driveway faster and for more money. Here are just a few reasons you should service your car before putting a “For Sale” sign in the window:

* Sell it faster: Just as a home buyer would call in a home inspector before buying a home, most prospective car buyers will take the car to their mechanic for inspection. If you get it serviced and have it pass ‘inspection’ (with proof, of course) potential buyers may pass this step, getting it off your hands sooner.

* Make more money: While you don’t want to spend tons of money on a whole new engine, making smaller adjustments and improvements can net you a bit more money. Change the oil, inspect the exhaust and brakes, and make sure your tires are in good shape. Buyers may still try to negotiate a lower price but you have good reason to stick as close to your asking price as possible.

* Instil trust: When you give people your service inspection, you are basically telling them you are trustworthy, and aren’t trying to hide anything from potential buyers. You aren’t being a ‘rogue’ salesman. It’s true that buying a second-hand vehicle is ‘as is’ but that doesn’t mean you have to hide major issues from anyone. Giving them all the information up front will let buyers make an informed decision.
