Things to keep in mind when selling your car

Selling your car doesn’t have to be a painful or exhausting experience if you can see to a few basic guidelines.


At some stage in our lives we all get to a point where we want to or need to sell our vehicle, either because you have simply outgrown your vehicle or you just feel like a change of scenery. The used car market in South Africa is massive and buyers are spoilt for choice when it comes to makes and models.

Thanks to the evolution of technology, buyers can now have easy and unlimited access to choice; you therefore need to make sure your vehicle is market fit and buyable before you make it available.

The internet has become extremely visual, so if your vehicle doesn’t come across as visually appealing then the chance that a buyer is going to give it two looks is very slim.

Make sure your car is ready for the market by doing a thorough maintenance check and both exterior and interior clean up including all other minor repairs. Once you are happy with the outcome, get a friend to test drive the car and try and get a different perspective, they might notice small issues that might have slipped through your inspection.
