Sell my car! Sale Preparation Detail

                                     Starting at $200 (without paint correction) , $275 with a one-step paint correction

 

 

 

 

 

A thorough detailing prior to showing you vehicle to potential buyers will bring you a faster sale, with more money in your pocket!

Any potential buyer is going to be interested in your car or not, in the first 30 seconds they see it. A dirty car with faded trim, oxidized headlights and dull paint is not going to get much of a second look. Open up the hood and see an engine bay full of dirt and dried up grease and oil....not a big selling point. Interior is even more important! Carpets and seats full of dirt and stains, and ALWAYS the accompanying weird odors from pets and years of food and snacks will be a big turn off. Smokers vehicles are the hardest to get rid of odors, but a good cleaning and a treatment of ozone will clear up the toughest odors. Over time they may slightly return, but the new owners will have their own odors in the car by then ☺!

 

People want a mechanically sound car that has the overall appearance of being taken care of. Nice glossy paint, clean engine bay, no faded trim pieces, clear headlights, a clean looking AND clean smelling interior will get you a fast sale for top dollar. Well worth the extra few dollars for a detail. You will easily make that back, very likely more! I post all of my for-sale-vehicles on my Facebook page and it has resulted in a sold car in a few cases! I can take photos that maximize its appearance that I can email to you to use too.

You may not need a polish, just an application of a glaze that will leave a smooth and glossy finish. Dark colors, especially black will almost always need a polishing to look its best and a dramatic difference will be seen.
