As we are sure many of you have seen, we have written many an article on how to sell your car on Gumtree quickly, and easily. But, it’s been a while, so we thought it would be time to do a refresher course! If selling your vehicle is something you are thinking of doing, here are 4 easy steps to ensure you find the right buyer.
Blow the competition away with amazing photographs!
A picture says a thousand words, especially when it comes to selling your vehicle. You may think taking a quick side shot is enough, but buyers don’t like surprises. Make sure you take high-resolution, clear photographs of your vehicle against a clutter-free background. You will want to take photos of every angle on the outside, all important areas inside, and any areas of concern like rust, scratches, or tears.

Write a completely honest and appealing description in your advert!
As previously mentioned, buyers do not like surprises. You are more likely to sell your ride quickly if buyers know about any small concerns with your vehicle ahead of time. If they believe they are coming to view a ride in impeccable condition, yet arrive to find it is anything but, be prepared for them to turn around and head home immediately. To avoid this situation, be honest in your description. Additionally, make it visually appealing by making it as easy as possible for buyers to see all the important information without having to message you to ask additional questions. The less work the buyer has to do, the better.
Find a dealer!
