A professional pre-sale detail can help present an older car in the best possible light. Of course, people expect used vehicles to show some signs of wear and tear, but they also want a car that comes “showroom” clean and ready to drive!
Vacuuming the inside of your car and washing the exterior on your own may not be enough to make your vehicle attractive to buyers. Here are a few of the reasons why investing in pre-sale car detailing is a smart choice.
Use Our Gold Coast Pre-Sale Car Detailing to Attract Buyers
Our popular Gold Coast Pre-sale car detailing services include the thorough cleaning of the interior and exterior of your car. The detailed cleaning helps make your car more presentable to prospective buyers.
Depending on the detail you book, a pre-sale car detailing typically includes the following and more:
- Carpets & Upholstery Machine Shampooed
- Wheels Acid Washed
- Clean & Feed Leather
- Wiping down the interiors
- Exterior de-waxed & Light Scratch Removal
- Apply Wax Sealant To All Paintwork
The entire interior, including the dashboard and console, is wiped down. Our team of detailers will also attempt to remove stains from upholstery and condition leather seats. By the time the cleaning is done, the exterior has a polished look and the interior has the new car smell.
The clean look of your vehicle creates the impression of a newer car, allowing it to stand out when compared to other cars in the same price range. Car detailing can also help eliminate a lot of those odors and stains we associate with a used car.
Choosing to take your car in for professional pre-purchase detail helps it appear less worn. This gives buyers more confidence that the previous owner kept good care of the car.
It May Result in a Higher Sale Price
Firstly, attracting more buyers gives you an advantage when negotiating the sale price. The cleanliness of the car also makes it easier to justify starting with a higher asking price.
Secondly, If you attract more buyers, you may receive multiple offers. As the bids start coming in, you can select the best offer and maximise your profit from the sale. You may even recoup the entire cost of the pre-sale car detailing.
Thirdly, people are willing to spend more for perceived value even when the extra value is superficial. Finally, a cleaner car is simply more appealing, as it gives the impression that it should not require any major repairs immediately after buying.
Professional Pre-Sale Car Detailing Protects Your Vehicle
Do you know what products and equipment are best for giving the exterior of your vehicle a shine? Do you know how to safely clean leather interiors without causing further damage? These are some of the details that professionals understand and have experience dealing with.
Using the wrong cleaning methods may damage the upholstery or the paint job on the exterior of the car. Handing your car over to experts ensures that it receives a thorough cleaning without the risk of unintentionally damaging the exterior or interior.
Along with these advantages, pre-sale car detailing may help you sell your car faster. Instead of letting your car sit on the market for weeks or months, consider scheduling a thorough detailing to make it more appealing to buyers.
