If you drive a performance or luxury vehicle, there are important points to remember in preserving not only your car or SUV, but it's resale value as well. Luxury and performance vehicles depreciate more quickly than other cars. Many who own these cars like to have the newest and the best of the best. In that way, the odds are stacked against you when trying to get a good price for your car. Fortunately, A-Ford-Able Auto Repair & Tire Service has some steps you can take to ensure you get the most for your car when it’s time to sell.
Obviously, it’s important to keep your truck looking nice. Wash and wax your vehicle regularly, and take the time to detail the interior. It’ll go a long way towards preserving your car, and buyers will notice when they take at a look at your vehicle. Keeping your car in a good aesthetic condition also convinces potential buyers that you put effort into maintaining a nice ride. More importantly, keep your car in good mechanical condition, and keep a record of it.
These cars are complex machines, and there is no shortage of systems to go wrong. Even if it’s a small issue, many buyers will opt to move on to the next one rather than take a risk on a car they think you need to get rid of. Regular maintenance on your truck ensures these issues don’t get out of hand. Also, keep your receipts. A paper trail instills confidence in a buyer that you cared for your car responsibly. It provides proof that you can refer back to, giving them peace of mind that they’re buying a car that won’t give them trouble down the line. Providing detailed paperwork is one of the most important factors in resale value, more so than age, mileage, etc.
If your car is modified or performance enhanced, your paperwork is equally important. Anyone can say they put $10,000 worth of parts and labor into an engine, but without the paperwork to prove it, your word is as good as useless in the minds of a potential buyer. They are looking to make a huge investment, and they need assurance they’re getting what they pay for.
