Time to get personal with your vehicle and consider the following:
Age - The age of your vehicle will make the biggest difference to its overall value.
Mileage - The more mileage on your vehicle, the lower the value. A greater car mileage equates to a greater potential for wear and tear. The average vehicle travels 14,000kms per year, so if your car has traveled more than this then its value may be lower than the average.
Condition - Condition refers to your vehicle’s exterior, interior and mechanics. The overall condition of your vehicle plays a large role in determining its market value.
Extras - In built technology and add-ons such as in-built GPS, bull bars and heated seats should all be considered when assessing the value of your car (particularly if they weren’t offered in the standard model).
When you boil it all down, Selling your car doesnt have to be a mine field. By doing your homework and research beforehand you can easily negotiate a better selling price on your car.
