Here is Parsons' advice for getting the most out of your car, whether you're planning on selling it right away or at some point in the distant future:
Removing Dings and Dents
The problem with dings and dents is that they give an overall feeling of being abused. Potential buyers are much less willing to pay top dollar for a vehicle that they think may have been abused or driven hard during its time with the current owner. So one of the best things that automobile owners can do to increase the value of their vehicles is to remove any noticeable dings or dents.
Dent removal, especially for those in Virginia Beach, is a relatively cheap repair that can add quite a bit of the value to any car. Not only that, but frequently the same companies that remove dents will also remove any scratches that are in there at the same time for no additional fee.
Touching Up Scratches
Tiny nicks and scratches are relatively inexpensive to fix, and they can really increase the amount that you can expect to make from the sale of your car. If you are going to improve the value of your own carwhether you are selling it right away or notthen you can buy a bottle of touch up paint from the manufacturer and fix any tiny scratches. Touching up minor scrapes and scratches around the car right away after getting a nick not only makes the vehicle look better, but it also helps prevent the vehicle from getting rusty.
Restoring Old Headlights
Refinishing or restoring worn down headlights is a great way to improve the overall look of any car. As vehicles age, it's natural that the headlight covers get oxidized and glazed over with layers of grime. The constant nicks that come as a result of flying gravel and rocks don't help any, either. Getting a simple headlight restoration job done on your vehicle only costs around $65 per headlight, and for that price, you are getting back a vehicle with headlights that look brand new.
Cleaning the Tires
The cleanliness and overall look of the tires is definitely something that anyone looking to buy a car pays attention to. It is important for car owners to keep their tires clean and unobstructed at all times, but especially so before they put their vehicles on the market. A lot of people inspect their tires so infrequently that they don't even realize that their tires are all gummed up. I recommend cleaning your tires regularly and making sure that all the tread is still on there before listing your vehicle for sale.
Re-Waxing the Car
After a few years of owning a car, the initial wax sheen or shine tends to wear off. It's a normal part of car ownership, but it's something that needs to be taken care of before putting the car on the market as a re-sale. A good re-wax job can really bring back the reflecting shine of the car which is probably what drew the current owner to it in the first place so that is really good when it comes to attracting potential buyers.
In today's economy, anyone selling a used vehicle is looking to get every extra penny out of it that he can. So remember, inexpensive repairs that cost only a couple dollars can add hundreds to a vehicle's overall value. By making minor improvements, you can surely boost your vehicle's resale value before putting it on the market.
