The Cleaner the Car, the Quicker the Sale

car keysNo matter what you’re selling, nobody wants that lived-in look. Real estate agents spend weeks staging homes before putting them on the market, updating everything from the wall color to the overflowing storage compartments. Why should your car be any different? Whether you’re trading it in or selling it yourself, follow these cleaning tips to help sell your car.

Clean Your Car Before a Sale

  1. Move your stuff. You’d be amazed at how many people trade in their cars, only to remember the iPod they left in the pocket behind the driver’s seat. Set aside a few hours to clean out your car once you’ve decided to sell. It helps to have a fresh set of eyes, so ask a friend to help. They may catch the clutter that’s been there so long, it looks like part of the upholstery.
  2. Deodorize the interior. You may not believe it, but if you’ve had your vehicle for any length of time, it smells. Most of us are so used to the faint odor of our cars, we don’t notice the scent of puppy, soccer cleats, or smoke. But potential buyers will. Before selling your car, remove odors from the upholstery, carpets, and A/C filters.
  3. Schedule an auto detail. Towne Lake’s Carwash and Detail has years of experience giving cars the individual attention they need. Our experienced technicians will clean your car from top to bottom, ridding the interior of grime, polishing the wheels and rims, and restoring that new car shine.
