Here’s some tips to sell your vehicle quicker and get the maximum price.
There’s a lot of competition for vehicle sellers on sites like Trade Me, particularly if you have a common vehicle. Put yourself in the buyer’s shoes for a moment. If you are looking for a 2005 Toyota Corolla and there’s 50 to choose from you are unlikely to pay a premium, unless of course one of these sellers adopts our tips!
The Vehicle Information Report (VIR) will show potential buyers that your vehicle is not reported stolen, doesn’t have money owing or a wound odometer.
We recommend including the unique URL for your VIR within your listing details so potential buyers can view it.
For only $110 you can get a Mechanical Pre-Purchase Inspection from your local VTNZ.
We recommend stating that you have had an inspection within your listing details.
A new WOF will provide further reassurance. You might be able to get it done at the same time as your Pre-Purchase Inspection!
Make the car look it’s absolute best
