How to Get a Used Car Ready to Sell

Cleaning Car Dash and Windshield

Is it time for you to move on from your current car? Selling a used car involves a few steps, but Houston drivers shouldn’t fret because it’s still a rather easy process, and now is actually a great time to sell. You could sell your car to a private buyer, but we recommend selling your used car to Humble Hyundai because you’ll be in a professional environment to get it all done right. Let Humble Hyundai explain the process to you, and be sure to finance with us when it’s time to drive home in a new-to-you ride!

Prepping a Used Car for Sale

If you have to prep a used car for sale in Humble, there are a few things you’ll have to do:

  1. Get the car detailed by a professional because there’s quite a bit of dirt that can get into hard-to-reach places in your car. On the other hand, you can clean it yourself to save some money.
  2. Be sure to have the regularly scheduled maintenance done on your car, such as an oil change, a tire rotation, a wheel balancing and alignment, and the rest.
  3. Make sure you have all your original parts, like key fobs, when you turn in your vehicle.

Do you know how to clean your car interior? They sell special fabric and leather cleaners for cars at the auto parts store. Using small circular motions with a microfiber cloth can get a lot of the funk out of your car.

Selling Your Used Car to a Dealership vs. Private Seller

You can sell your car to a private seller, or you can take it to a dealership like Humble Hyundai. Houston drivers who want to sell a used car might want to take it to a dealership for several reasons:

  • At a dealership, you’re subject to a more formal process and will have a sales professional helping you along in the process.
  • Generally, you’ll get a better price on the car if you sell it to a dealership vs. going to a private party.
  • You can avoid the hassle of haggling with a stranger when you sell your car to a dealership.
