While there are plenty of people looking for a used car, truck, or SUV, there are a select few who are in the market for a luxury vehicle or an exotic sportscar.

Whether you’re selling your high-end vehicle privately or to a dealership, there are a few small things you can do to ensure you get the best value possible. When you sell your vehicle, use these tips to help get the maximum value possible.
Fix the Little Details
Repair visible flaws like broken tail lights, windshield chips, and dents.
Replace burnt out interior lights, put on new wiper blades, and make sure all your options are in working order.
Visit Your Mechanic
Take your vehicle for a quick inspection before you hang up the “For Sale” sign.
Get the mechanic to give your vehicle a good tune up, checking your fluids and filters to see if they need to be topped up or changed. It’s also a good idea to check your brakes, hoses, belts, and tire pressure.
Eliminate any warning lights. Did you forget to reset your oil change indicator or does your ‘check engine’ light always come on? Talk to your mechanic to see how the issue(s) can be resolved.
If you discover serious problems then you’ll want to weigh out the cost and benefits of fixing them – will it help you make the sale or does it make more sense to leave it as is?
For any issues you opt not to have fixed, get your mechanic to give you an estimate so you can pass this information along to potential buyers.
Gather Your Records
Compile your service or maintenance records – if you typically do the oil changes and tune ups then be prepared to tell shoppers how often you serviced the vehicle.
Put together notes on how you used the vehicle including your highway and city driving habits, and the amount of kilometres you drive annually.
Make sure you have the owner’s manual handy along with extra keys.
Clean Inside and Out
Have your vehicle detailed by a professional. Automatic carwashes can leave scratches, so go the extra mile and have an expert make your vehicle look like new.
Use an engine cleaner or Degreaser to clean things up under the hood too.
Grab a vacuum and get under and in between the seats, clean out the cup-holders, and clear out the glove box. Wipe around all the knobs, switches, and the gearshift, and give the dashboard a good wash. Don’t forget to clean all the windows on the inside as well.
A lingering odour in your car could turn off a prospective buyer. Avoid the traditional tree-shaped car freshener but consider using an odor eliminator or a light, fresh scent to give your car a pleasant new aroma.
