Tips on advertising your car online

Gather all your car’s information

You will need to know your car’s specification, the miles it has done, and when it last had its MOT. Potential buyers might ask to see proof of these things, so make sure you have got all the relevant information at hand in case someone asks.

Set your price

Think about what the car you are selling is worth, not just what you want. If you set the price far too high, then people might not bother contacting you. You are able to value your car for free by entering your registration on the My Car Check website. This will give you an idea of how much you can price your vehicle at.

A picture paints a thousand words

Make sure that the images you take of your vehicle are as professional-looking as possible. Make sure the lighting is good, the images show off the car in a positive light, and that you have images from all angles. If you do not have enough photos, it can be off-putting for potential buyers who think you might have something to hide. Before you take the photos ensure that your vehicle is clean and tidy. Photos with mess or dirt might put off people and have a negative impact on your online listing.

Creating your free car advert

When it comes to creating your free car advert, you need to remember to be as descriptive as possible. Do not give any false information and ensure that the specification information you put is correct. Sometimes sellers choose to leave out information about the car as they believe this will make it seem more valuable to buyers, however, this will just waste your time when the potential buyer sees something they were not expecting and is no longer interested. Be truthful and then you know that everyone who contacts you knows exactly what condition the car is in.

Clean up your vehicle

Sometimes potential buyers want to see the car and will ask to come for a viewing. Ensure that you have cleaned your vehicle thoroughly inside and out, to appeal to the buyer more.

Answer enquires quickly and professionally

Be your own top salesman, by consistently checking if you have any potential buyers for your car. Answer any emails or phone calls promptly and make sure you always have a professional manner. This will put your potential buyer’s minds at ease and will help keep them interested.

Share your car advert

Once your car advert is up and ready to go, be sure to share your advert with not only friends and family, but also your social media network. You will be surprised by how effective this can be. Even if your followers and friends are not looking for a car themselves, they might know someone who is. People are far more likely to buy a vehicle from someone they know, even if it is only over social media, so you could get a lot more interest from just a simple share.
